About Me

I'm a writer and researcher who lives in the Pacific Northwest.

I love sending little packages, cards and fun things to friends and strangers alike. I've always been a fan of getting things in the mail and I love the idea that someone else gets to have that surprise too.

Please do send a note if you don't receive a swap from me. I'm happy to resend if something goes wrong.

Favorite Books

I'm a huge reader, lots of different types of books from novels to poetry to nonfiction. There's pretty much nothing I won't pick up.

I'm in love with the poets David Whyte, Mark Nepo and Mary Oliver. Some favorite novels: A Prayer for Owen Meany, The Eight, Ender's Game. Favorite Authors: Octavia Butler, Jacqueline Carey, Sarah Waters, Brene Brown, Jessie Burton, N.K Jemisin, Tayari Jones and Nnedi Okorafor

Favorite Movies

Little Miss Sunshine, Stranger than Fiction, A Fish Called Wanda, Dr. Strangelove. I have a love of bad dance movies like Center Stage or Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights - I'm talking bad acting, bad plot, fantastic dancing! For some reason it makes me happy!

Favorite Crafts

I'm a knitter, sewer and generally an all around crafty type. I've always got various projects lying around that I'm working on (no there are NOT too many of them! :). I've started spinning yarn and have been enjoying doing that and trying to figure out what to do with all that yarn (anyone want to do a yarn ball swap?). I play with quilting, doodling and have recently picked up the ukelele. I love postcards and being inspired by creative people.

Favorite Television

I binge on shows like Kimmy Schmidt, Parks and Recreation, Sense8, House of Cards, Outlander, The Good Wife, News Room, Orange is the New Black, Blacklist, The Americans, Orphan Black. Sometimes I go back and rewatch the Star Trek Next Gen, Firefly, Dr. Who or Sherlock just to enjoy the fun again.

Favorite Tea

Tea, Earl Grey, hot.

You pretty much can't go wrong with sending me teas. I'm trying my to try a few more in the herbal/non-caffeinated variety, but I do love a good rich black tea, spicy chais and grassy green teas.

Favorite Colors

I love most things purple, blue and green or teal. I also like cool muted colors like grey, black and olive. Every once in a while I play with splashes of crimson and orange.

But then again, rainbows and sparkles are fun too aren't they?

Things I like

I love walking through the woods, having tea with friends and generally enjoying life. For fun, I swim, walk and spend time with my sweetie.

Ferns, trees, mountains, anything related to the ocean, herbs/gardens, botanical prints, line drawings, drawings, mandalas (particularly those in nature), swirls, dogs/puppies (allergic to cats sadly), ducks, striped things, geometric designs, black and white photos, pages from books turned into art, stamps, handmade or artistic paper, marbled paper, Japanese design principles, minimalism, modern designs, spirals and patterns.

I adore vintage post cards, old school science fiction, pretty patterns and random postcards from places I've never been. I'm a big fan of quotes and interesting questions and ideas. If you doodle, zentangle or can do fun fonts/calligraphy, I'd love to see it!

It's fun to hear a bit about you and what you're thinking about if you write. I appreciate any of the following in a note or card: - A description of something you saw or did today. - Something you would do in your perfect day. - Your comfort food and what makes it so wonderful - An awesome dinner you'd cook for someone you love. - What your favorite book or movie and why. - The character from a book or movie you'd most like to meet in real life.
- Meaningful quotes. - Things that make you laugh. - Bits of trivia. - Poetry or verse. - Questions - What you think about while looking up at the clouds. - Jokes I can send to my 11 and 8 year-old nephews in a postcard - Jokes I can't tell my nephews.

I'm rarely offended and hard to disappoint.

Yarn!

In yarn I like pretty much any fiber though I'm not a huge fan of acrylic unless it's chenille or something pretty. Extra points for the lux stuff like silk/alpaca/merino. Totally not required.

Gauge is open, though I tend to like worsted/sport/chunky. That said I also enjoy a good ball of sock yarn. Especially those ones which shift colors. So fun to knit with!

I love cooler colors (blues, purples, greens) and black/grey but I've been known to knit up something orange for my nephew. :) I do also like to pick up a deep red or magenta or splash a bit of that into my projects. Mostly I like deep colors.

I don't really do lace weight yarn, pastels, or white things. Lace is too fiddlley for me and with white/pastels, I'm pretty much certain to spill spaghetti sauce on it. No matter what it is.

Also! I've been handspinning and I do have small amounts of handspun to exchange if folks are interested.

Comment: Thank you, Beth. A fun swap. Really like the cards and post cards. Thanks for re-doing and having a good attitude.
Response: So glad you got this one and enjoyed it! Thanks for letting me know when the package didn't go through and being patient with my travels so I could get a new one out to you! It's never fun when a package is lost, but I'm very happy to make it right.
