A creative free-sprirt who is obsessed with organization and details. In other words, a living contradiction. ;) I live in Seattle, WA, USA; I'm 36 and married to a wonderful man. I am a technical editor, photographer, and kntter.
My passions are knitting, reading, walking, swimming, travel, and personal growth. I love languages. I speak French "almost" fluently and also studied Russian, Spanish and Navajo in college.
I collect yarn, books, postcards, postage stamps, and magazines with glossy pictures for collaging. I love chocolate (especially with fruit and/or nuts in it!). I drink tea mostly but enjoy the occasional coffee. I'm a feline at heart, I have two cats--but I love all animals, even humans ;-) I enjoy all colors except neons.
If you are sending to me, I'd appreciate it if you would use REAL STAMPS for postage when possible. I really like to see different stamps. Thanks a bunch.
FOOD-RELATED: I'm allergic to dairy, eggs and mushrooms.
FOR AN EXTRA-SPECIAL PACKAGE, I'd LOVE images of or things related to the following animals or items. Thanks so much! Moomintrolls, Zebras, Sheep or goats, Snowflakes, Rain, Giraffes, Camels

I still love some of my favorites from childhood like "Free to Be You & Me" and the original "Muppet Movie" soundtrack. Other than that I listen to world music, big band, and music from the 1920s, 30s, and 40s. I do like some more recent artists, mostly indie or folk, such as Elliott Smith, Korby Lenker, Joshua Radin, Jewel, and KT Tunstall.
I read a lot of classic literature because I'm in a (now-defunct) group called Knit the Classics. Other books I've loved are the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series, Elizabeth George mysteries, Stephen King's Dark Tower series, all the Harry Potter books, The Count of Monte Cristo, and too many more to list.
Indie films, classics, Me and You and Everyone We Know, Enchanted April, Amelie, Rear Window, Bagdad Cafe (aka Out of Rosenheim). I like movies with authentic acting, and character-driven films. I can't watch violent or depressing movies anymore.
Northern Exposure, Red Dwarf, Monarch of the Glen, Arrested Development. I'm more of a movie person.
Knitting, SoulCollage, photography, card-making.
