I recently got a new job that is taking up most of my time, so I am still here but not swapping as much as before.
Hi there! I live in Nashville, Tennessee though I mostly grew up in Florida and have lived lots of different places. I was a middle school teacher for six years but left two years ago to pursue other things, like opening a vegan restaurant! One of my biggest hobbies is Muay Thai kickboxing. My current record is 8-3 and I've won two title belts. I am also an avid weightlifter and do yoga when I can find time. My best friend is also on this site - @eveyinorbit - and we make art together at nashpop.etsy.com
I'm really passionate about a lot of different things - from organic farming to animal rescue. I live with my husband and our menagerie of rescue animals -- two cats, two dogs, and a corn snake. I volunteer with two local animal rescues.
I am an avid reader and normally devour 100 or so books per year. I love live music and try to go to shows as often as possible. If "Trouble" wasn't already my middle name, then it would be "Wanderlust" as I love to travel and am always trying to plan my next trip. Besides working on different mail art projects, I knit, paint, draw, do pottery, do stained glass, carve blockprints, make zines, write (letters, short fiction, and poetry), sew, and quilt. I get hooked on learning new crafts very easily and am constantly bouncing from one project to the next.
I always love the chance to set up private swaps with people, so feel free to drop me a line if you are interested! =)
I took Spanish in college long, long ago and would really like to relearn it! If you speak Spanish and would be interested in writing letters back and forth, please get in touch with me!
