About Me

NOTE: I'm pretty busy these days and no longer that active on Swap-bot. I still stop by here for a swap or two every once in awhile, but it might take me a bit longer to respond to messages or leave ratings.

I enjoy sending swaps about as much as I enjoy receiving them, so I do not flake and I ALWAYS send my swaps. I am usually on time, but occasionally something will come up and I'll be a day or two late. If it's been awhile and you haven't received it, please let me know. Sometimes things get lost in the mail, and I would rather resend the swap than have you rate me poorly.

I have a pretty short attention span, so my hobbies tend to cycle. I have been known to enjoy: drawing, painting, writing (stories and letters), playing piano, hiking, camping, biking, yoga, running, skiing, cooking, watching movies, etc.

I like cats. I also like pretty/cute stationery, but not the stuff that's so cute that it's scary.

Right now I'm into: drinking tea, reading, seeing plays, doing yoga, fountain pens, and trail running.

Favorite Television

Gilmore Girls, Sex & the City, Friends, Downton Abbey. But I don't really watch much television, as you can see by how out-of-date my favorites are.

What I like

Characters: Hello Kitty, Chococat, Sentimental Circus, Diddl, Mashimaro, most San-X, etc.

Colors: Silver, black, blue, turquoise, purple

Other: Cats, Asian-themed, Victorian, pretty things, pandas, seals, flowers, stickers, tea, rubber stamps, stationery, art nouveau

Flavors: cinnamon/nutmeg/chai spices, berries, Earl Gray, garlic, jasmine/rose/other flower tastes, high mountain oolongs, and too many others to name...

What I don't like

Characters: Scary and ugly things

Colors: Anything too bright and flashy, especially in yellow, orange, or red

Flavors: chocolate flavors (good, pure chocolate is ok), vanilla, anything too sweet, licorice, olive

Comment: GREAT penpal letter - I really enjoyed it! It's always fun to see those questions well-woven in, and my partner always manages to do it differently than I did! I'm in Portland, Oregon - we don't come to Seattle (the city itself) often, but we're frequently in Washington, hiking and climbing. I was actually in Olympic National Park last weekend and I'm off to Goat Rocks for the holiday weekend. Hope you are well!

Comment: Crater Lake looks so awesome. It reminds be a bit of Lake Tahoe, just without all the trees.

I just wanted to tell you that I'm a little bit behind on the tea-swap because of some unexpected money issues, I will most likely have the tea sent out by Monday. I'm very sorry for any inconvience.
