If you are sending me a postcard, please try not to mail it in an envelope - i really prefer postcards that go through the mail.
I am female of 28 years, graduated from college with a degree in creative writing, was a book store manager for 5 years and now I am self employed via Etsy :) I got married August 2nd, 2008 to my love of 9 years, and we're happy as can be and now expecting our first little one. I truly love getting interesting and random mail, and I like to wonder if I bring any joy to the postal workers who deliver and sort my mail. Getting and sending snail mail is practically my favorite thing in the world. Currently am in love with sewing, it's nearly all I do! I lived in Japan in early 2007, and I miss it very very much - I've been back twice since then and will continue to go back every few years for the rest of my life. I also love cooking/baking, reading novels, collecting unique vintage photos, watching movies while crafting, writing letters, playing with my dogs, vintage postcards and children's books, nintendo DS, Carl Sandburg, fantastic quotes, coloring books and lots of other ridiculous things.
My favorite color is purple, all shades! My favorite color combination is currently lilac and teal. I don't like yellow or orange. My favorite scent is vanilla. I also love honeysuckle and lavender. I love strawberries - they're cute and delicious!
I LOVE clothing and shopping. I have an entire business based on vintage clothing. (Foxburrow Vintage)
I have two dogs, a Corgi (boy, named Ein) and a Mini Daschund (girl, named Kiki). My dogs loves stuffed toys (please only quality toys they tear them up really quickly if they're bad quality), pizza,peanut butter, and frosted/sprinkles treats.They also love squeakers. They're both very long.
Favorite Authors is better.... Bill Bryson, Barbara Kingsolver, Neil Gaiman, Christopher Paolini, Garth Nix, Phillip Pullman, Roald Dahl, JK Rowling, Cornelia Funke, Louise Rennison, Erin Morgenstern, John Flanagan
I use the library and I'm on paperbackswap.com so usually I don't need books. If you have a REALLY great book you think I'd like, totally send it.
