About Me

Hello! I'm 42 years old, married with 2 beautiful children! We are all animal lovers. Currently we have 2 calico kitties and a black and grey tabby cat and we recently adopted a 3 year old Pomeranian we named Chewbacca. I love to craft, read, watch TV such as Dr. Who, Game of Thrones and all things Joss Whedon. My son has high functioning autism and I wouldn't change him for the world! I love superheroes, especially from the DC universe. In my spare time, I love to go geocaching and take lots of pictures. I look forward to hearing from you soon! If anyone would like to write directly to me, I'm always looking for pen pals! Update 10/27/2015 I have chronic pain and it's been kicking my butt lately. I'm cutting back on swaps, but finishing the ones I am currently signed up for and will continue the traveling swaps! Update 1/17/16 My pain comes and goes. My pain doc said there's nothing much else they can do except up my medication. I'm trying to do more and not let my pain control my life! October 2, 2016 - Twice now I have been accused of not sending swaps. I ALWAYS send my swaps no matter what is going on in my life. It's almost enough to make me quit. If it happens again, I'm done with drama. I have enough going on in my own life then to be pulled into more pointless drama. If you didn't get something, reach out to me first please. Sometimes the mail does get messed up but please do not accuse me of not sending! Rant over.

Favorite Music

My favorite kind of music to listen to will be and always will be The Grateful Dead. I have been a "Deadhead" for 25 years now and what a long strange trip it's been. I also enjoy listening to country music! I also love The Beatles! In the car, I'm usually rocking out to top 40 or country or the 70's station. Depends on who is in the car with me! :) Do podcasts count as music?? If so, I am so addicted to My Favorite Murder! SSDGM!

Favorite Books

I am an avid reader. I am always reading something new. I can't really say what genre is my favorite, except I don't really enjoy romances! Let me rephrase that. I don't like them at all. My all time favorite book is Tailchaser's Song by Tad Williams. It's a fantasy told from the viewpoint of cats! My favorite authors are Stephen King, Dean Koontz, John Grisham, Kurt Vonnegut, Jack Kerouac, David Wong (John Dies At the End) and George R. R. Martin. Also the Harry Potter series and the Hunger Games trilogy! I recently joined Pottermore and have been sorted into Hufflepuff!

Favorite Movies

I enjoy all kinds of different movies, the geekier, the better! I love all things DC and Marvel! And Joss Whedon of course! I have to admit horror movies are my favorite! I LOVE Harley Quinn! Hi puddin'! Along with comic book movies, I LOVE the Pitch Perfect movies and the Harry Potter movies.

Favorite Television

Lately I've been obsessed with Doctor Who! I also love Game of Thrones (books and the show), Agents of Shield, Shameless, The Walking Dead, Comic Book Men (I've met Walt and Mike at the Stash), Bates Motel, Cake Wars, Orange is the New Black, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly and Community.

Favorite Crafts

I love to draw, write letters, zentangle, and making jewelry! Thank you to all who have sent me coloring materials! I love to color! It's so peaceful to me!

Randomness

Random Things I love: Harley Quinn from DC, Batman, Kitty cats, Anchors, Anything to do with surfing or the beach, Dolphins, Turtles, Philadelphia Eagles, Photography, Lego video games, Coloring, Minions, Star Wars, Peace, signs, Jeeps (models up to 2006), Kawaii letter sets, stickers and pens, and Stitch! My favorite holiday is Halloween! I love all things with witches, fairies, dragons, or otherwise supernatural. Also, anything pertaining to Pokemon Go would be appreciated! Of course my favorite Pokemon is Pikachu but I also love Squirtle, Charmander and Jigglypuff!!! If you send me Jamberry nail wraps - so obsessed!! - automatic heart!! ATCS: I love making and receiving ATC's. Please PM me if you are interested in a private swap! Anything goes EXCEPT for political and religious themed - unless it's pagan or Wiccan. I don't mind nudity, gore, foul language, etc Dislikes: any kind of religious theme unless it's Pagan or Wiccan in nature and anything political. Not easily offended! WINNIE THE POOH!

Hobbies/Swaps

When I have spare time, I love to go out with my camera and take pictures. I take my camera wherever I go. Currently I have a Nikon D3100 DSLR and a Fujifilm point and shoot. My favorite places to shoot are the beaches and Philadelphia. I love to write letters, draw, but my all time favorite is geocaching! If you are a geocacher, please feel free to add my on geocaching.com! My user name is hushpadwitch. I love camping with my family. I'm happiest when I'm outdoors. But I need my creature comforts from home while camping like electricity and running water. We have a travel trailer that we like to take all over the east coast. I collect patches and pins from wherever I go. I'm also obsessed with all things surfing! I would love to receive from swaps, stationary, especially Kawaii featuring Rikaluma, pens - the cuter the better, pins from your area, patches, love Kawaii sticker flakes, Kawaii memos any size, ATC's, pictures of landscapes you have taken (I love beaches and the ocean), and anything purple or blue! I just started playing Pokemon Go and I'm so addicted!!!!!

Swaps

For book swaps, please do not send me romances. I tried them and I don't like them. I know it's sender's choice but all I ask is no romances of any kind. And no tea please! Thanks in advanced! I try and take the time to read my swap partner's profile before sending any swap, even sender's choice. I also try to send my swaps out a day or 2 after partners have been assigned. If you do not hear or receive a swap from me, or it is not what you wanted, please reach out to me and let me know and I will surely make it right! I also do not like tea unless it is cold brew. I do like coffee and lattes so those kind of mixes are fine! If you do not send me a swap, I will reach out to you at before rating a 1. I don't like to do it and I understand life gets in the way! If you would like to do a personal swap, please reach out to me. I would swap ATC's, handmade bookmarks, postcards, letters, and anything Kawaii based! Also stationery, pins, patches and pens! :)

Postcards

I like all kinds of postcards but my favorites are: touristy, cats, movie or tv based, strange and unusual, comic book, turtles, snow leopards, dolphins or any kind of sea life, lighthouses, music, Star Wars, artsy, Kawaii, Harry Potter, Disney EXCEPT WINNIE THE POOH OR ANY CHARACTER RELATED TO WINNIE THE POOH!! I CAN'T STAND HIM, beach, oceans, and book related. A note hello, quote or sing lyric on the back would be great! I just started to collect Kawaii stuff so any would be appreciated! Postcard wishlist: cats, any sea creatures, Kawaii, lighthouses, beach scenes, Dr. Who, Star Wars, Star Trek, DC or Marvel, any strange and unusual, witches,, artsy, dragons... I'm pretty easy going :) Wish list: pretty stationery, pretty pens, especially ones that write purple or green, gel pens for coloring, any Sakura of America products, materials for making ATC's, blank postcards, psychological thriller books, adult coloring books, and for my kids, Disney Descendants. Sonic the Hedgehog, books for 1st grade girls, books for 3rd grade boys, anything autism awareness, Star Wars, Doctor Who, Nintendo's Mario and Lego!
