About Me

I detest introductions, but I will be a good sport and give it a go. I'm a 29 year old mom and wife from the concrete jungle of New York City. I work full time as a project manager, I do approximately 15 hours of volunteer work a week with the fire department, I design stationery which I sell on Etsy, and, of course, I'm a mom - which is ALWAYS a full time job. I guess you could say I keep busy.

I enjoy writing - whether with pen pals, prose, poetry, or blogging. I paint as often as I can, which is not often enough. I have loved reading since before I even learned how. I like to try my hand at various crafty things.

I'm incredibly opinionated, but always refrain from forcing those opinions on others. I curse excessively - let's just say Friday is not my favorite F word. I am painfully honest and blunt. I'm nearly impossible to offend.

I love long rambling conversations. Autumn is my absolute favorite season. I live for coffee. I would live off of tacos and pizza if I could.

I love Harry Potter, Star Wars, Supernatural, Percy Jackson, the Lord of the Rings, & anything Tim Burton.

I love a full mailbox. I love letters, little ephemera, stamps, and pretty much anything someone might have seen and thought of me. Snail mail is the purest form of human communication - proof of our desire to connect and share our lives with others.

As a rule, I never send anything that I, myself, would be disappointed to receive and would appreciate the same in turn. :)

Favorite Music

My taste in music is varied but mostly runs 80's, 90's, early 2000. I love Alternative, Grunge, Classic Rock, & Punk.

Sublime, Nirvana, Blink 182, The Ramones, Pearl Jam, Avenge Sevenfold, Beastie Boys, New Kids on the Block, The Clash, Guns N' Roses, The Doors Journey...

I don't even know why I'm listing, if it came out before '05 I probably like it.

Comment: Just got your envelope yesterday! Thank you for the great swap. Love the fall picture. Trying to figure what to do with the clown note card, wondering if he is too scary for my grand daughter or not, she loves Halloween but I think he is really creepy😬 Great washi too, I don't have any of them🙂
