About Me

Member of Letter Writers Alliance

Hello there! My first name is Kyra and i will be happy to be your swap partner for this swap! I’m looking forward to swapping with YOU! That being said the 2018 year has been a busy one!

Live in a small town outside of the greater Portland area with mileage into Portland being about 30 miles! Most people around this area are into some kind of food production here, We have lots of small farms that lie outside of the city where people are returning to have small working places where people can make a living with some of the great opportunities that this area can offer.

WHAT MAKES MY HEART SING! Being creative has always been an interesting journey and challenge. One has to know themselves pretty well. Then to be open enough to take on something like aswap in order to really see how much someone has changed! So here i am! Attempting to work on the art that wants to be expressed thru this body-mind mechanism. So this is what i am opening to! It’s a process and a journey!

SWAPPING I’m pretty open as far as what i like in swapping. I dont have a long laundry list of things that i have to have etc. i love art postcards and have my favorite artists. Also love beautiful postcards of nature and animals. Love almost all postcards really. I mean who doesnt love a good postcard of their city? You know? If you would like it then i would probably like it. Love funny PCs too. We can all laugh more than we probably do today with our world situation! So bring on the laughs! Laughter and lightness is welcome here. If you love to create and it calls to send me something feel free to create something for me. I would appreciate anything you want to send. If you wonder what to send me and i have not made a long list i will leave it up to your decision and i trust that. We are all kind here and that has value in my world. Don’t worry about it. Send whatever you feel in your heart! Thank you!

TEAS I enjoy most teas and if I don't, I pass them along. The more unusual the tea, the more I find interesting. Any tea is fine with me so dont feel you have to send me something unusual. If you came to my house I would serve something you like. I’ve been graced with lots of interesting teas. So thank you to the people who have sent me some unusual teas! Have really enjoyed seeing the differences and the varieties and nothing amazes me more than the varieties of TEA! With all that being said lets just sit down to a good cup of No 10 blend by Murchies in Canada. It is a delicious beautiful cup of tea. I just happen to have some loose tea in the cupboard. However, i will always send packaged tea bags in swaps!

REMBERING WHAT IT IS ABOUT FOR ME Just remember we are all human here. So take a risk and get out of your comfort zone and write something daring to me. Write about your life and tell me something that is bothering you. I can hold the space for you. I think it is beautiful to be able to share yourself because we are all choosing to swap. It is really touching to have someone write something deeper than the day was sunny and really touch the human spirit that we all share. Just take a deep breath and write to another human being taking a risk. It’s ok to take risks they lead to some beautiful experiences......

Remember to rate if you can remember. We forget and in our busy lives we keep things around. Just let someone know that you received their note PC or swap when you get it. It is a very kind and respectful thing to do. Thank you !

CATS!!

Last but not least i choose to live with 2 cats named Baba and Claire. Am their caregiver and family. Anyone who has ever been with cats know that one doesn't own a cat. The best we can do is be in relationship with cats. Baba and Claire were both born in the wild. They have taught me so much, in that they are their own free spirit! Feed hummingbirds too! FInd feeding the birds to be a real gift in my life. It is such a wonderful way to relax and i can be with the birds for hours. They buzz around me and let me come close while they feed and go here and there. Both the birds and cats have taught me to live a less stressed life! But then i am an avid animal lover!

CAT APPROVED

Everything coming into my house gets the stamp of approval of Baba! She has to see and sniff every swap! sometimes she gives a big meow when the mail comes!

WRITING and OTHER THINGS

Am a closet writer. What i have found out since coming on Swap Bot is that i have something to share and say. It keeps oozing out in the pcs and in the art swaps that i keep signing up for. Stories, quirky facts, drawings, artwork and information comes floating to the surface of the mind and i want to immediately get it down. If you consider yourself a writer then you understand one has to GET IT DOWN NOW!

Now lets get down to swapping and having fun doing our thing! Wont you be my snail mail neighbor? Hehehehe!

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful illustrated Portland postcard! I think it might be my first one from there, but I know the city by its hipster reputation :D

Comment: Hi Kyra! Thanks for the great card, tea and the long letter! It is a small world sometimes isn't it! I've been looking at the various MCT oils and learning a lot, mostly that I have to read the labels more carefully lol, the first one I bought didn't actually have enough of the "right" MCTs in it!! I never thought of putting it in my hot chocolate, it's getting to the time of year when I have a mug before bedtime...winter is coming! Hope all is well with you:)

Comment: I got extra happy when I saw peach tea. I made that right away to sip on while I read your [ very interesting ] letter. I envy that you can garden your own food. i have a very small yard - and we're only allowed to grow food in a space not seen by a sidewalk. Since we live on a corner, a small space on the side of the house is the only area I can do it in. Its kind of okay because apparently I am terrible. I couldnt even get tomatoes grow this year. I'll be out there as soon as I can next year getting the little patch ready for tomatoes to not grow in it again, haha. Thank you for your letter. I really enjoyed reading it.. I also love the orange ink color!
Response: I think I can give you some pointers about growing tomatoes as I had to learn this! They are a bit fussy until you learn what you need to do and then you will have no fail tomatoes. The kind of variety can mater too! I’m so glad you liked the peach tea too! It is quite nice isn’t it? Getting an interesting can be a gift in a given day and it’s a wonderful thing for al of us who like to write and share, a beautiful thing! Have a beautiful day!

Comment: Hi Kyra, Good to hear from you again. Thanks for the nice cover bridges card. We do have them in here but the Oregon bridges have a different look to them. Best Wishes, Neal
Response: Thank you Neal! I enjoyed hearing that you do have covered bridges where you love too! You can see the differences between the bridges from both states so neat! Have a great day!

Comment: Hi Kyra, Thank you very much for the lovely card and your note. I used to listen to "Pirate" radio stations when I was a youngster. After the FCC cracked down, they were pressured into making unlicensed broadcast stations under five watts legal. Take Care, Neal

Comment: I loved your card! I think it's amazing that you're a food artist and you've grown this big garden. I think that's incredible. I hope you have lots of fun growing it bigger!
Response: So glad you enjoyed the card! I never realized how much physical work raising food takes! With commercial raising of food o pole tend to have vehicles that do most the work. I never sit as i garden and I move all th hoses myself wow! I’m worn out most days! What it has taught me is to appreciate food and the plant family! I truly respect our Mother Earth and will not be overweight as the body ages. Be well and happy!
