I live in the USA in the state of Maryland and I am really interested in other cultures, be it in the USA or abroad! I recently graduated from college with a degree in Architecture and Environmental Design. So of course anything architectural or city related I love!!
I love pictures of significant buildings in your city/town/village as well as any beautiful street views. I enjoy different recipe cards that are native to your culture. Pictures of neat sites around your city/village would be nice!
My favorite colors are pink and purple, oh and also any Halloween colors together! I also love to read! I have a passion for cooking, so if you send me something, include a recipe card that is either your favorite, your own creating, or something that is cooked a lot in your region/culture!
I also have a strange attraction to old cemeteries. I really can't explain it, but I just love the peaceful and the graceful beauty of an old cemetery. Anything that is sent to me with those themes would be much appreciated!
If you don't receive my swap or there is an issue, please let me know ASAP so I can re-send or fix the problem. I take a lot of care when creating my swaps and I would appreciate the courtesy of sending me a message if there is a problem. If you have sent me something and I haven't rated, please let me know.
I am an avid reader. My favorite authors are Charlaine Harris (though quickly making her way to the bottom of my list), Nora Roberts, Steig Larsson, and Mary Kay Andrews. I love to read different genres including horror, history, romance and mystery. Send me a list of your favorite books so I can check them out!
I love American Horror Story, Jersey Shore (guilty pleasure!), Glee, Hells Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares, The Office, Six Feet Under, Carnivale, King of the Hill, True Blood, many many and so many more!
Currently I collect key holes and bottle caps. I love different and funky bottle caps, mostly from beers. Every time I open a bottle that has a neat cap, I save it. I currently glue little magnets on the back to make magnets out of them! I really would love to get some from around the world with neat images/logos on them. I love old houses (that was part of my architecture study) and would love to get my hands on some more unique key holes. So if you have any lying around, please send them!

I really love incorporating postcards in to my art journal or hanging them on my wall at work. I love pictures of famous buildings, city scapes, maps, vintage, and offensive postcards. If you think something might be too risque to send in a normal swap, send it to me! As long as there is no violence towards humans or animals, I'm down to have it sent to me!!
99% of the time I send my swaps from work where we have an automated postal machine, so there are rarely any stamps on anything I send unless the swap has to do with stamps specifically. Also I'm not sure how often the post office picks up mail from us during the day. I know they come at least once, but I might drop something in the mail after they've already come and it might not get postage until the following day so sometimes the postmark might be a day off and therefore not being sent until the day after I hit "sent" and no, there is no real way to track this unless I actually go into the mail room and dig though the bin of items needing postage, which is highly frowned upon.
