My name is Marie. I live in northwest Wisconsin with my husband Eric and my furbaby R.E.O. I have a bachelors in Art History. I hope to have a career in museum work soon.
I just started a YouTube channel about postal mail. If you are postal obsessed like me, you may be interested in my videos. Visit me at: Marie Loves Mail
I can not stress enough that I have NO intention of flaking. If you have not received something PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me know PRIOR to giving me a bad rating so I can mend it and send a resend if necessary or look up the tracking number if its a larger package.
Extras: As much as I love extras, I have so much stuff it's insane. If you could avoid sending extras, I'd actually appreciate it as I'm trying to use up what I have right now.
I've been seeing this cool ABC's of likes and I decided to try it. It seems fun so here it goes:
A-Anime, Absolute Boyfriend
B-Black Butler, Black Mirror

M-Mail and mail related stuff, mint green, mint flavor, Merlin (BBC), The Magicians (SyFy)

I love to scrapbook and make cards. That eventually turned into a love of making ATCs and Deco books as well. I don't consider myself "good" at any of those things but I sure love it!
I am an unashamed recycler and regifter. If I get something in a swap I can't use I'm going to pass it on because I know someone else can use it (other than throwing it away.) I am also an avid recycler. I love to make things out of something others would throw away. I reuse all the packaging I receive. Please don't be offended if I recycle something.
I use a Compact Passion Planner for my planner because I need to run my life on half hour increments. I highly recommend a Passion Planner for busy people.
While I appreciate any and all extras, please don't send me list pad sheets or napkins. I have so many and I really just don't know what to do with them all since I really don't use them.
I'm not a Disney kind of gal. Sorry.
I HATE OWLS...an owl tried to eat my/parents dog once. He swooped in for the kill and thank God missed. Since then owls and I have not gotten along.
The mustache craze as well is over done. I understand the awesomeness of the original cause in which I support, however the commercialism of putting a mustache on everything to me is over rated and over done. No thanks please.
I am in search of the Sideshow (ticket) Ipsy bag if anyone has one and wants to swap for it.
NOTE MAY 2018: They are reconstructing the street in front of my Post Office which has caused severe traffic in the area. Therefore, I usually avoid it if I can. Of course I will continue to send swaps using other PO locations in the area and "blue boxes" but please have patience with me if my rating is slow.
UPDATE JULY 2018: They have now cut off the main accesses to my post office and replaced it with a weird temporary driveway. I personally am a little scared by this entrance so probably will be avoiding the PO until they restore proper access to my PO or I can go safely.
UPDATE JULY 24 2018 --SIGH-- The entrances to my post office have now been cut off there is a very narrow entrance if you circle the building but it scares me a bit as two way traffic can not go through it. I have resolved to change my address here to my home address until further notice until construction will end or an actual entrance is reestablished. I have picked up items from my PO box but anything sent before today may not be rated until I can get to my post office again. Thank you for you patience.
UPDATE SEPT 28 The road is repaved and should completely reopened in the coming weeks. I've set my PO Box address back but I still might not frequently collect it until the road is completely opened.
UPDATE NOVEMBER Construction is FINALLY OVER!!!
