The Basics

I'm Colorado born and raised, an expert daydreamer, and I hustle like crazy.

Random things that make me happy: typewriters, shades of green, gems/crystals/geology, Bill Murray, outer space/galaxies/stars, 3D images, vintage postage stamps, otters, the Royal Family, Chip-n-Dale, cacti (cactuses?), Gudetama, sparkly things, airmail, puffy stickers.

I never thought neon would make a comeback after the 1980s, but I'm glad it did. Especially neon red. :)

Good Mail Days are the best! I write thick letters and stuff them into colorful envelopes. I've been a member of the Letter Writer's Alliance for years. Let me know if you're looking for a new pen pal. :)

I don't get bored. I was an only child and developed the ability to entertain myself. In those rare moments when I'm not at the office, I can be happy doing nothing.

I love cooking and read cookbooks like they are novels.

It's hard to offend me in swaps--I'm fine with crazy, weird images and curse words...I'm fine with Kawaii and baby chihuahuas. One thing that does "offend" me a bit: terrible spelling and grammar in swap descriptions. I tend to pass on swaps that are a grammatical mess.

Wedding Day

What I Listen to

Dream pop, 1980s, 1990s R&B, British soul, classic rock, oldies, mariachi, old school hip hop, Motown, all those classic songs you'd sing out loud on a road trip, and any music that sounds a little spacey.

I'm also into podcasts and talk radio, especially when I'm driving around town on errands or taking longer road trips.

Favorite Movies

Edward Scissorhands, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Lost in Translation, Drive, Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle, West Side Story, The Other Guys.

I miss "nice" comedies like You've Got Mail.

I watch a ton of documentaries. I dunno how that fact would ever play into a swap. Maybe it says something about my personality? Maybe suggest one for me check out?

TV Obsessions

My favorite TV shows are mindless and easy. They help me to de-stress..my day job is stressful and can make my brain hurt.

I love that primetime game shows are back!

Some shows I'm hooked on: Terrace House, The Rookie, Shark Tank, Top Chef, 90 Day Fiancé.

I miss Anthony Bourdain roaming around eating things.

No Thank You

Religious and "Country Kitchen" themes, kiddie/reward/Dollar Tree stickers, and powdered drink mixes are not my thing. I'd be bummed to receive something that's used, dirty, completely thoughtless, covered in pet hair, heavy with the smell of cigarettes..

Crafty Habits

My worst habit might be obsessively buying craft supplies. I'm terrible about using my stash...I'm sure it's because I have zero craft supply organizational skills.

I tried making ATCs. I failed. But I do like making zines, and I hope they'll become trendy again.

No-rules creative journaling suits me. Big photos, ephemera, lots of washi, metallic pens..

Comment: Thank you for the great letter and the PC. My daughter and I made a little detour to the Pike's Peak Cog Railroad, as I was helping her move back to IL from her internship in Phoenix. What we saw of CO and your area was beautiful. I very much want to return with more time to poke around. It may take me a few days but I will be writing back.

Comment: This was due months ago and I’m so sorry I’ve taken this long to rate (honestly, it’s taken me this long to get through all my mail as work and all the end of the year holidays get busy and I’m now working on moving) but thank you! Even though it’s been so long, I will still write a letter back! Working on it now!

Comment: What a wonderful swap to get on this very last day of 2018. I LOVE how you decorated the envelope, my extras and I would enjoy getting my hands on the stamped weather, week and date you placed on your letter. I play scrabble every chance I get and am fascinated with how you put your name into a scrabble form. Congrats on your baby! What a true blessing for 2019. Also, happy belated birthday. My grandfather was born Dec 29th as well. Thanks for writing. Will always remember you while we watch the Rookie. Will see you in your mailbox sometime in January. Best Wishes for a wonderful 2019.

Was just reading your profile, getting ideas for your prize parcel. Had to comment because I'm an only child too!!! So, when people complain about being bored, I really never understand it lol :)
