About Me

Mom to one. US Navy veteran. Nerd. Bibliophile. Tea lover. Chocoholic. Crochet and yarn addict.

Random facts about me:
I have no singing voice, but I love to sing. I love learning about my ancestry. My daughter is part Korean (her grandmother was from S. Korea, and her father was born in Seoul)...and refers to herself as an "AsianCasian."

My Daughter:

I have a lovely daughter, she's now a teen, and she just amazes me. She makes me laugh every day, and is always coming up with something new to tell me. She loves singing and making up songs, and we sing together everywhere--even walking around a store shopping. She loves watching movies, and has so many I'm not sure if she has a favorite. She loves the colors of the rainbow, but her favorite color is black.

Favorite Books


Diana Gabaldon, Barbara Erskine, JK Rowling, Fannie Flagg, JRR Tolkien, KM Moning, Nancy E. Turner, Colleen Hoover, Sabaa Tahir, Kata Cuic.


Historical fiction, Fantasy, True Crime, Paranormal, WWI-WWII-Civil War era novels (non-fiction and fiction) I'll pretty much read anything if it catches my interest.

I have literally walked into wall corners because I was so engrossed in a book.



I love The Beatles. Aerosmith, any classical, Native American Flutes (like R. Carlos Nakai)... The Avett Brothers are my all time favorite, and I finally got to see them in concert Summer 2014.


Monk (I miss Monk). Vikings, The Alienist, and NFL games. Pretty much only turn my tv on for those three.


Lord of the Rings & Hobbit, Harry Potter, Disney, Hot Fuzz, and Shaun of the Dead. The Wizard of Oz was (and still is) my favorite growing up.

Favorite Crafts

By no means am I an expert at crafts, but I do like doing them. I love coloring (yep, in my kid's coloring books...we sit together and color). I am a crochet addict. One can never have enough yarn.

CROCHET: I am trading and collecting 6 inch granny squares to make an afghan (any kind design). Worsted weight, acrylic is good. Any color/combo.


I love writing to other people and learning about them. Over the last two years, I started collecting postcards, and writing penpals.
I love: the colors blue and green, celtic, dragonflies, baltic amber, books, horses, nature, digital photography, paranormal, taking walks, swimming, hiking, and playing games with my daughter.


I like getting postcards that show the city/town/country the person comes from, nature scenes, historical places, parks, military, unusual cards, lighthouses, places of worship (churches, temples, etc), castles, animals, funny/comic, art...I guess just about anything.


bookmarks, stationary, stickers, postcards. Okay, so I'm addicted to bookmarks and postcards.



I'm not a fan of white chocolate, but I'm always willing to try something new. I never know if I'll be surprised and like something. I love nuts, esp. almonds and hazlenuts. Who'm I kidding I'll eat pretty much anything if it's chocolate ;o)


Tea...another addiction. I love black, green, white, rooibos, fruity, spicy (like chai), etc. I love a good, strong cuppa. The only tea I can't drink seems to be Yerba Mate. It doesn't agree with me.

If you don't receive swap

If you don't receive anything from me in a reasonable amount of time, please let me know by message. I do not mark things "Sent" unless I have actually put them into the hands of the post office.

Pledge To Rate

I Pledge to Rate what I pledged

I love getting rated for my swaps, and love rating others. If you do not get rated by me, then I have not received the swap yet (feel free to PM me). I always try contacting a partner before I rate neutral or negative.

If you do not receive a swap from me in a sensible amount of time please PM me before you rate. I do not mark items sent until I have placed them into the hands of the USPS.

If I ever think I will not make a swap deadline, and will send out late, I will notify the coordinator and any partners I am sending to.

Juniebird rated for How's The Weather Today PC INT on Sep 22, 2018
Comment: I enjoyed your postcard very much. I remember one summer when I was a kid my family camped in Pennsylvania and it rained nearly every day! It's one of my favorite childhood memories and probably why to this day I love rainy days! I know I'm unusual lol... I hope the sun is shining for you now!
Response: Guess what...still raining!!! I'm gonna turn into a zombie soon. We're breaking all kinds of rain records this year! I grew up in NY, and we'd camp in the Catskills during the summers. I still love camping...and no matter what, it always rains when you go camping! LOL

brooklynbunch rated for Summer Reading - Completed on Sep 19, 2018
Comment: Thanks for the swap. It sounds like you read the same way I do--I have multiple books going at once. I also review books so I read things I normally wouldn't choose and have to read by a deadline. Right now I've got"The best american travel writing of 2018." susan (brooklynbunch)
Response: Oh yay!! Everyone thinks I'm batty reading books like I do. No one understands how I can read multiples without getting confused. Meanwhile, if I don't read like that, I zoom through a book and don't remember a thing about it!!! LOL

Comment: Kerry, thank you for the map postcard of New Jersey. Didn't have. Shirley
Response: You're welcome! Oddly enough, even though I live in PA, I'm right down the road from NJ. We have a Jersey rest area about 2 miles away.

Comment: What an excellent package of Bookmarks & PCs !!! Thank you very much !!! :-)
Response: You're welcome! I'm glad you like them! I'm known to use my pc's as book marks too. I've started cutting up boxes to make bookmarks, usually cereal boxes from my daughter as they have cartoons.

Comment: I love this map. Thank you. My dad's side of the family lived in Stroudsburg by the Delaware Water Gap and we visited every summer when I was a child. I loved the scenery--especially the Pocono Mts. Have a great summer and thanks for such a nice card.
Response: You're welcome! So glad you like it! I live only 10 miles from Stroud. I live right off Rt 611 on the Delaware, so we get a lot of people during the summer. Everyone kayaking, canoeing, and tubing down the river. Have a great summer!!!

"If there's a phone in heaven put Mama on the line."

Phone in Heaven by Mike Manuel

I asked my daughter if she would sing this at my funeral and she said she didn't think she could make it through the whole song...

Song Lyrics #1 Electronic

Shoo be doo ay, I got something to say Shoo be doo I, gotta try To tell you that I, I, I, I really love you, love you Shoo be doo ay, gotta say it my way It may not be fancy, I know But I said it before, and I'll say it again And again, and again, and again

Song Lyrics #1 Electronic

"There've been times that I thought, I couldn't last for long / But now I think I'm able to carry on / It's been a long, a long time coming / But I know a change is gonna come, oh yes it will"

A Change is Gonna Come - Sam Cooke
