About Me

Recently licensed social worker who is very passionate about her career! I am a therapist and groups creator/facilitator in Arizona. I love my job because I get to be creative and it's a healthy challenge.

Acabo de regresé de 6 semanas en Argentina, donde estudiaba español. Quiero ser fluido y disfrutaría cartas escrito en español:-) Y dime si quieres que escribo en español a tu!!

I have two pet rabbits (Elsa and Einstein), a tabby kitten named Tiny, and a black cat named Mr. Cat! He is my little snuggle muffin and I adore him :) I LOVE animals and wish I could have my own animal shelter!

I love to paint, collage, scrapbook, journal, make cards and send handwritten letters.

In my spare time I LOVE to bike, Geocache, hike and do yoga. I enjoy getting dressed up and wearing creative, brightly colored and sometimes glittery outfits. I've been known to write creative stories and poetry.

I'm passionate about helping other people learn, grow and heal.

I love to learn new things about other people, cultures and religions/spiritualities and will appreciate getting anything that shows and teaches me something new.

I have a quirky sense of humor...I love sarcasm, irony and puns. I'm not offended by much except racism, sexism, disrespect, etc. so feel free to swear and otherwise express yourself!

My favorite colors are yellow and blue. I also really enjoy purple and pink.

My favorite holiday is Valentine's Day.

My favorite season is Spring.

I'm fascinated by Kawaii! I don't know much about it or own much yet but I LOVE Kawaii stationary, cards and stickers! Especially with interesting phrases :)

Favorite Music

Feist, Iron and Wine, Five Iron Frenzy, Arcade Fire, Beyonce, India Arie, Over the Rhine, Justin Timberlake, Vampire Weekend, MGMT, Jars of Clay, The Cranberries, Kanye West, Florence and the Machine, Rufus Wainwright, Nicki Minaj, Iron and Wine, Rihanna, Sufjan Stevens, Regina Spektor, St. Vincent,

Favorite Books

The Princess Bride, Little Women, Graham Greene, Khalil Gibran, Barbara Kingsolver, Karen Armstrong, Maya Angelou, Paulo Coelho. I love poetry as well! My favorites are Mary Oliver, Pablo Neruda and the amazing verse of Rumi.

I love non-fiction, poetry and thought provoking novels. I love non-fiction about psychology, women,LGBTQ issues, feminism, creative writing, spirituality, psychology, sociology, social work, and comparative religion.


Spanish Glitter animals (especially rabbits!) nature flowers butterflies violin (sometimes I play!) nail polish big earrings and necklaces color biking hiking Spanish writing reading art journaling learning coffee chocolate fashion humor Geocaching (I just hid my own near my home!) travel teaching sun having adventures being a tourist in my own town jokes (especially puns!) Arizona poetry Kawaii

Favorite Crafts

Altered books, art journaling, painting, scrapbooking, card making, writing, bookmaking, collaging, mail art, paper crafts.

When I'm not creating:

Health and fitness (I love getting exercise and healthy eating!), writing, playing violin and piano, reading, shopping, Geocaching, getting dressed up, helping to run a poetry slam, watching Law and Order or The Colbert Report, trying to learn Spanish.

I'd Love to Get:

I've recently decided that I want to decorate my house using calming colors, especially pale turquoise and light blue, so I'd love each things in those colors...along with pink and yellow!

I like to share some of the things I get with my young clients at work- stickers, pens, coloring pages, etc.

Also I'm obsessed with washi tape and decorative tape!

I am trying to build a collection of Kawaii to use and share!

I love stickers, post-it notes, things in Spanish, vintage ephemera, things with puns, office supplies, glittery things, things that help me be organized!

Please don't send:

The only holiday I really enjoy is Valentine's Day, so I'd prefer to not receive a lot of Christmas, Halloween, Easter, etc. items.

I also don't really like getting edible or perishable items other than tea.

I REALLY don't like stuffed animals or Disney.

I enjoy learning about other religions and I am spiritual but I am not religious. I don't have a lot of use for Bible verse, Christian ephemera, etc.

Comment: Hi Emily, thank you for the Buenos Aires card! No, I have yet to visit Argentina. My favorite place I've visited outside the U.S.? Well, I really enjoyed my last two trips to SE Asia: Singapore & Thailand. Am chomping at the bit to go back, & to visit the surrounding countries, too! Thanks again.

Comment: Thank you so much, Emily. To get 2 cards in an envie for a single card swap would automatically earn a ♥ from me. But to get 2 such perfect ones makes me wish I could give you more! I sent many Che cards from Cuba, but never thought to keep some for myself. He's practically worshipped there & I have wonderful photos of many billboards featuring his handsome face. And now I have a postcard! Life is good! Not to mention the beautiful moth & your lovely butterfly card and stickers. Me gusta todo mucho.
Comment: Thanks for the cute card and neat postcards.
Comment: OMG I love this vintage Hallmark koala card! Thank you for the postcard as well. I hope you have a nice Valentine's Day!!!! ❤️❤️

Comment: OMG EMILY!!! "How to be a Contortionist"?! "Sing a Song of Spinach"?! These are fantastic ephemera, thank you so much. We DO have the same taste. (That's probably a bad thing, but I like you anyway.)
