About Erica

Note- I NEVER flake! Please contact me before rating me as a "1" so I can try to fix the situation. I know that no one likes to be flaked on, so PLEASE, allow me the time to resend or otherwise remedy the case. Thank you! Anywho... my name is Erica, I'm 30 years old, and I live in New Jersey (in the USA). I love to read books, especially historical fiction. I'm an avid pen paler and mail artist. I love to make mail and art journal pages. I mostly use collage, but also rubber stamps and acrylic paint. I'm a "mail box junkie" and I'm not ashamed! I also love to crochet.

Erica's favorite things!

  • Greco-Roman mythology
  • angels
  • fairy tales
  • mermaids
  • animals, nature, the ocean
  • Art history (especially Impressionism and Neoclassicism)

Favorite Art + Craft Supplies

Collage Fodder - text with foreign languages - images of animals and natural landscapes - patterned scrapbooking paper - stamps (especially foreign stamps) - vintage imagery - sheet music - graph paper - ledger paper

Other - stamps - ink pads - colored pencils - watersoluble crayons - ribbon - buttons - yarn (especially worsted weight acrylics and super bulky)

Favorite Movies

Historical/Literary: 300, Gladiator, Elizabeth, The Other Boleyn Girl, Lolita, Dorian Grey, Marie Antoinette, The Duchess, Troy

Light n Fluffy: The Sweetest Thing, Made of Honor, 27 Dresses, The Ugly Truth, Twilight, Mama Mia

Favorite Crafts

My absolute favorite craft is crocheting! I love to crochet baby hats for charity. I also crochet for family and friends, and I have an Etsy shop where I sometimes sell things I crochet.

And I love, love, love to color! I color on a weekly basis. I just grab my stash of colored pencils and crayons and coloring sheets, pop on some music, and color my heart out!

Favorite Books

I just LOVE to read! My favorite genres are history, cultural studies, historical fiction, short stories, poetry, and more. I am "coracalliope" on Goodreads. Please add me there!

Random Items I Like

  • stickers
  • tea (herbal) but no lemon or orange please, because it gives me heartburn
  • book marks!
  • post cards
  • FB's (friendship books)
  • anything handmade by you! (Zentangles, drawings, etc)

My Contact Info

Just in case you'd like to "drop me a line", here's my postal address:

Erica D./13 Hewson Avenue/ Waldwick, NJ 07463/ United States of America


  • I welcome handmade postcards!
  • I prefer that postcards be sent "naked" (written on and stamped, not in an envelope), unless the swap's rules demand otherwise
  • Please include the date somewhere on the postcard.
  • I love all types of postcards! However, if you're looking to really make my day, please see the "Erica's Favorite Things" section of my profile.

Thank you!
