About Me

  • If I am in a swap and haven't signed on in a while, don't worry - I will definitely be following through with the swap! If you are worried you can contact me via e-mail to verify that I am still interested.*

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 Music

Favorite Books

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.

Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/4735158-brittany

Sense & Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice (I have BBC and Kiera Knightly ones)

I LOVE to watch movies and TV while I sew.

Favorite Crafts

Sewing, Paper craft, Stamp Carving, Embroidery, knitting with quality fibers and unique yarns.

Dislikes

♦BANANA or CHERRY flavored things - ew. I hate the smell of those too. ♦I don't dislike Sanrio but I live right next to a Sanrio store... ♦Lipsmackers. or LIP GLOSS (I ONLY like lip balm and lip tint) ♦DOTEE DOLLS ♦bratz or barbies. ♦Disney Princess stuff (except belle). ♦Diddl ♦Snoopy ♦decorative things that aren't functional. ♦Junk from the dollar store.

I am not religious so no crosses or religious items please. Holiday items are fine, however! I celebrate Christmas, Easter, and all that good stuff.

Please do not send me items that are handmade without love. I love to get handmade things, but I expect to be able to tell that you care about what you made. NO JUNK!

Kawaii Likes/Dislikes

My favorite animals are foxes & deer and HEDGEHOGS!, but I love almost anything. I particularly love food with faces (especially lunch foods/bento, shumai, gyoza, sushi, tofu, or breakfast foods like waffles/pancakes).
