UPDATE: We were evacuated from the Bobcat fire, but the firefighters were able to save our house! My mailbox got burned but I am using my work address for incoming swaps and my husband brings them all home to me.
FYI: I mail out from my local post office of Valyermo, which is very old, tiny & rural. Nobody is even there...you just go in and pick up from your PO box and drop mail into the slot! Things don't get scanned until they reach the next city.
About my life: Hi! I live in beautiful Juniper Hills, which is in the foothills of the Angeles Forest/San Gabriel Mountains above the Mojave Desert in Southern California, on 3 acres of nature with an organic vegetable garden, Beehive, fruit trees, grapevines, chickens, a cat, dog and my sweet husband. We get snow in the winter, summer rain & thunderstorms in between the hot, dry days, beautiful sunsets, big night skies full of stars and lots of wildflowers in spring. We don't get a lot of Fall color though since most of the trees are evergreens and unfortunately there is that fire risk! It is very peaceful up here. On the weekends I live on my boat that's docked in the Channel Islands marina in Ventura, California (about an 1.5 hour drive from my house) and work at the Channel Islands Farmers Market with my daughter selling her natural body products. During the week I work a couple of days a week at our machine shop in the city of San Fernando doing aerospace stuff with my son & hubby.
Joshua trees and beautiful sunsets in summer.
My passions are traveling, going on road trips, or day trips to places I haven't been, light hiking/walking, boating, looking for sea shells, exploring new restaurants, walking through botanical gardens, museums, old graveyards, cathedrals, tea houses and flea markets.
I love making things! In my She-Shed/Craft Studio I like to paint, do resin art for my Etsy shop, work with nature, do seasonal crafts, paper crafts, a wee bit of sewing (still learning the machine- always sewed by hand in the past!) and making natural body products with my daughter. I also make wine, but it's not that great yet, haha!
Favorite stuff: I'm an 80's girl & enjoy New Wave (classic alt) but Beatles are my favorite. I like to watch the Hallmark channel. My favorite T.V shows are Magnum P.I., Frazier & I Love Lucy. Favorite movies are Grease, Little Mermaid & Pulp Fiction. My favorite colors are greens & coral/peach. Favorite number is 3. I wear a size small and size 6 shoe. My favorite scents are lemon and grapefruit. My favorite teas are black with caffeine. My favorite food is salad. Favorite places I have traveled to are India, Paris and Yosemite. Right now I am reading Arcadia Falls. I am a Leo and spiritual, but not religious.

I send all my swaps with good intentions. If you ever have an issue please send me a message and give me the opportunity to correct any mistakes. Thank you.
ABOUT MY MAILING ADDRESS:
I use my business address in San Fernando. We have a security gate that is locked on the weekends so the mailman can't deliver on Saturday. So, you might get a message on your tracking saying delivery was attempted...but they will deliver it the following business day, so don't worry ;)
