02/16/2018: Just enrolled back to the University.

PLEASE write me if you have not received from me. I promise I will do my best to make it right. PLEASE do not rate me down without even giving me the chance to talk and act.

My basic info

Maria Gallardo
Po Box 1891-2050
San Pedro de Montes de Oca
San Jose, Costa Rica 11501

My : mgallardo68@gmail.com

I am Maria, 49 years old. Mom of three grown children and grannie of 4 grandbabies and one that is in her way. I have a beloved sister and a niece and nephew that are like my own children. I also have 1 DIL and 1 SIL that treat me as their mom and I love them dearly (even if we fight jajaja).

I love my family above all, also love art, reading, traveling, Internet, movies, classic and indi music, talking, philosophy, philology, history, anthropology, even politics.... I am atheist but I love anything/everything related with religious icons, symbols, ethereal spirits, angels, pagan and so on and I have no problem receiving any of this (only do NOT indoctrinate me please).

I am a sharing person, I do not like hoarding (really minimalist in my possessions). I love to send extras and try to make my best to send your way a good package but by no means, this means I expect the same. Though, I do appreciate the love you put in your swaps.

I quilt, sew, do mixed media, altering, recycling, upcycling and more. Love cotton fabrics, buttons, papers, pretty stuff, vintage stuff, doing collage, painting, using watercolors, the stars, the cosmos, the humans, the leaves and tres, the ocean, the planets, ribbons & laces. Snow!! ♥♥

Love blank postcards in envelope but I am perfectly fine if you send a naked one, and postage stamps (used and unused), handmade items that show your soul, envelopes (colorful and handmade are the best), happy mail and decorated stuff.

Love roses, Christmas and Fall, the snow (oh the snow)... Did I say snow?

I do not like:

  • Dirty stuff
  • Smoking smell stuff
  • Vulgar stuff or rude
  • Pets

I am an honest person, passionate, intense and straightforward (this gives me problems all the time) ...
