About Me

October 1st is my one year Swap Bot Anniversary... So i decided a profile update was in order

Hello! I'm in my 30s and live in the state of Missouri in the USA. In my free time I love doing photography, craft projects, and learning history. I'm also addicted to sending and receiving postcards. I live with my husband and two spoiled cats.

I love things that have a vintage feel and tend to like non-bright colors (dusty fall colors, pastels, ect). That said, I've recieved many things I would not have thought I'd like... And loved them. So surprises are good and the personal touch always matters the most to me.

If you don't recieve my swap, please let me know. I'd be glad to resend it if I need to. I promise to rate!

Spirituality

I am an eclectic pagan or eclectic witch, depending on the day I'm asked. In reality, I'm still working to find my path and not a big fan of definitions. I respect the earth and her gifts. I am always happy to recieve anything related to paganism, witchcraft, or the goddesses - candles, crystals, spells, herbs, crafts, ect.

That said, I deeply respect all faiths and anyone sincere in their beliefs. I love religious art and architecture from around the world and enjoy reading about the history of different faiths, religions, and belief systems.

You will not upset me sending religious or spiritual art or postcards. I don't mind a "Merry Christmas" or similar greeting. But please don't try to convert or save me, I am very happy with my spiritual path.

Postcards

I love postcards! I inherited a large vintage postcard collection and have been sending and receiving cards ever since. I'm happy to recieve well made handmade cards (anything that would make you smile if you received it).

I like every card I get, but especially enjoy:

Cards that show your area, your country, or your culture Anything witchy or pagan themed art landscapes Churches, mosques, and places of worship vintage cards Black and White books or libraries UNESCO coffee and tea Buildings, doors, locks, and mailboxes Royals or cultural/religious/political leaders of your country anything to do with agriculture, farming, farm animals, fields, farm equipment

For me the best part is the message you write on the back. I love finding a new postcard in my mailbox. It always brightens my day. I prefer cards written and stamped, please (unless the swap requires differently).

Favorite Crafts

I love scrapbooking, but never seem to have enough time. My newest obsession is my Erin Condrin LifePlanner!

Things I love: Goodies for my LifePlanner Pretty stationary and paper Note cards and envelopes Stickers Washi Tape!!! Blank Postcards Anything hand made Anything from or inspired by my Etsy wish list

Topics I like: Holidays (all of them) Anything pagan, witchy, or goddess related Vintage and travel related Pastel and fall colors Anything related to farming, agriculture, and animals

I have lots of ephemera and small bits of paper. I'd prefer not to get more. But I won't rate down, especially if it's senders choice.

Favorite Books

I read a lot of non-fiction, mostly history and biographies. I also like a good crime or mystery novel.

Tea and Food

I don't have any allergies or foods I just can't eat. I'll try anything once!

I love tea. Black and herbal teas are my favorites. Green tea is OK but popular with several friends at work (so if you send it, it will be enjoyed) I like plain, fruity, lemon, or sweet favors. I've tried chocolate flavored tea and shockingly didn't care for it ( I love chocolate and tea... But apparently not together). I'm also not a fan of chai.

I also enjoy coco and apple cider flavored drinks in the fall and winter. If you are outside the USA I'd be glad to try sweets or candy popular in your country or anything chocolate.

Comment: Wow, Karolyn, that postcard is the biggest I think I've ever seen! I really enjoyed it, and when my mother saw it, she reminded me that I too have been up in the Arch. (I don't remember it, though, sadly.) :-) Thank you for sharing! Oops! I didn't have your postcard in front of me last night when I wrote this, so I forgot to mention. . . I love to read, too! My goal for 2017 is to read books I own, but thus far I've continued my library addiction. Hopefully next weekend, January 21-22, will see me make some inroads into my own collection as that is the weekend for the #24in48 Readathon and my goal is to start this one 18-book series I have. :-) Regarding mysteries, I read one recently - Mr. Monk and the Dirty Cop by Lee Goldberg. I found it to be fairly delightful. :-) Enjoy! And Happy Reading! Thanks again for sharing!

Comment: Thank you very much for the three postcards you chose for me: two of Ernst Haeckel's sea invertebrates and the utterly intriguing pharmacy card. I could look at these cards all day. They are beautiful, and I am grateful, too, for your consideration and care in choosing them for me.

Hi! Just letting everyone know in TOW group that there is a Goddess PC Swap going on, hope to see you sign up!

Joy oh joy. I opened a magickal stocking stuffer from you that has 4 stones with the elements painted on them AND THEN got the TSP Yule/Winter Solstice Altar Item on it....it has a Yule Besom. I put it high on my holiday tree because I know for sure that my Cat Rico loves raffia and would have it dragged all over the place. You are amazingly talented. I am honored to have received such beautiful art.

Thank you so very much for A CUPPA & A CRYSTAL swap. I loved your mindfulness and sweet loving care to send me such an appropriate stone. I just started on a new phase of self-healing and it is spot on! I will enjoy the tea tomorrow.
