Hi! I'm from Oregon!

Update June 2019

Lots of life events going on. Working two jobs and spouse is in school. Easing back into swapping at the moment. Also joined a Dutch Bros (coffee) Sticker trade page on FB.

I'm very thankful for what God has provided for us in the last year. Somehow all the bills are getting paid and we have recently got some time to breathe in our schedule. We are also keeping family close and treasuring our time with them.

About Me

Some hobbies of mine are road trips, writing, and baking treats. I work full time, and am frequently "on-the-go"...busy.

Most of my time is devoted to regular pen pals both foreign and domestic. However, I do like swapping things (mostly domestic), which is why I joined swap-bot. Also, I do prefer handwritten letters if possible.

Other fun facts - I haven't been to many places, so I'm definitely interested in contrasts/comparisons of other states and countries. I have been to Mexico (Ensenada and Toluca) in the last few years.

Hobbies & Interests: Baking treats, alcohol infusions for gifts, Xbox Gaming. I really enjoy Skip-Bo, Cribbage, and Scrabble.

Papercrafting - not much (artsy-wise), except a lot of DIY envelopes. Recently I assembled a Portland/Trimet themed one filled with flat goodies. It's really fun for me. I also make basic envies out of assorted card stock, etc. I've also made other themed stuffed envies - pub related, donut themed one, and yet another PDX.

Swap-Bot is helping me rub shoulders with crafty people, so I'm branching out a bit.

I also treasure scenic country drives, in contrast to my partner who loves the city. I grew up in a large metro, so the country hills and hollers are a nice break.

TV Show: Master Chef Youtube Channel: Noreen's Kitchen Phone App: Pinterest

Favorite Music: Country, movie soundtracks, R&B, especially 90's era music.

Favorite Movies: Bourne Identity, what Dreams May Come, Secondhand Lions;

Favorite Poems: The Eagle (AL Tennyson) IF (Rudyard Kipling) The Cold Within Richard Cory

Actors: Robert Duvall, Denzel Washington, Tom Hanks,

Favorite TV Shows: LIVE PD, Forged in Fire, Local News, Jeopardy, SNL

Favorite Books: Where The Red Fern Grows, The Giver, Black Like Me; The Bible, Black Like Me

Authors: Dean Koontz, Lee Child, Dale Carnegie,

Favorite Quotes: Too many to list, besides a few:

Full battle array! - Planet of The Apes

The Navy's not here to negotiate - Tom Hanks in Captain Phillips

You, with the red bag! Stop right there! - Embassy Guard in Bourne Identity

Jesus Wept - The Bible

LIKES:

CLOWNS!!! - these are for a dear friend. Older the better...think Barnum.& Bailey or Ringling Brothers (he's never been to a circus).

Color, rainbows

Washi - any kind

Giraffes

Touristy magnets/mugs

Long, frequent letters

Home cooked recipes

Thoughtful quotes

Subtle, stylish stationery

STILL WAITING ON

YAY! Nothing.

DISLIKES

DISCLAIMER If our swap has any of the below items, the swap ranks OVER my dislikes (i.e. if it calls for a dusty, religious postcard - just send it.)

FOLDED STATIONERY (LETTER PAPER) - this makes it unusable, where I fold a certain way for letters, and I'm not a fan of extra creases. Please do NOT send FOLDED stationery.

Dusty/Musty items

Religious cards;

Postcards in general (I prefer a letter or nice stickers)

Regular white paper/ envelopes / lined paper

Hole punched paper

Hard to read ink (silver on white, yellow on pink, etc)

RAK - Used Postage Stamps - Thanks for all the postage stamps. Many will fit right into my collection.

NiniJae on Dec 6, 2017:

Randy Thank You so much for the Pen Pal Christmas RAK. The stationery set and stickers are lovely, and I can always use stamps. Most importantly, Thank You for wrapping it like a present. I am the person who "plays Santa" in my family and makes sure everyone has nicely wrapped presents (to and from each other). But I only get a few cards to open, never any presents to unwrap. So this was just very special and very appreciated. It felt like Christmas tonight! I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a great 2018.

Poohtat on Dec 6, 2017:

Thank you so much for the notecards and stickers for the Pen Pal RAK! I love everything!

Hi Randy - YOU ARE THE BEST! The Portland ephemera RAK was beyond AWESOME! I love every dang thing in there...I have no way to pick a favorite...postcards, the Portland Oregon card, the maps, the ticket from the hawks game, radio cab - even the awesome map envelope! I love the Tram map...well dang, just LOVE all of it! Thank you from the heart. I will enjoy using all of it :) Dina
