About Me

I live in Virginia Beach but I am from Bloomington, Indiana. I have three cats and a large 45 gallon fresh water fish tank. I love to play my piano when no one is around. I collect post cards from all over. any unwated sheet music is welcome

I support the military when I can by sending letters and care packages. I like going to national parks. I volunteer at the USO at one of the base terminals.

I am attending college for Military Resilience.

I enjoy any historic places, and ghost stories if you have any experiences you would like to share. I used to volunteer at a historic plantation for many years.

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy many crafts. Writing letters, scrapbooking, calligraphy and crochet. I like to make candy I can do all kinds of truffles. I am also in to family history research. I am a member of the letter writers alliance and a month of letters. I have added the links for both sites if your interested New pen pals always welcome.

I can always use stickers, stationery, fun pens, unused postage stamps, unused vintage postage stamps, washi tape, decorative envelopes, TO labels,

blank note cards. die cuts, tags, wax seal sets,, anything useful from any dollar store racks or Michael's, im not a picky person. I do also like pendulums and crystals I can use those at the plantation.

What I like

Shiny things, any thing unusual and odd. Anything that has to do with elephants. Surprises. Stickers. Stationery. Vintage any thing. Beaches and light houses. blank note cards, letter writing supplies,

Tea any kind but no loose tea leaves unless its packed properly. milk chocolate and white chocolate, strawberry, caramel, orange, lindit candy bars, Cadbury, truffles, raspberry, cinnamon, chips, Anything new to try. no food allergies. nothing with peppers or any hot candy

. my favorite colors are any shades of green, purple, blues, blank recipe cards Any sheet music you may have and no longer want. Flat pennies.

Stickers the motifs they look like swirly and shiny alphabet letter stickers, spare parts paper flowers shiny not the big ones.

Candles any size, I like the long taper ones different colors. crystals, and rocks, pendulums, tarot, any seeds I can put in my flower bed that would benefit the butterflies, fairies,

Do Not Send

Anything that has to do with Alice in Wonderland. any of the versions. so PLEASE don't send any Alice in Wonderland stuff!! or gnomes.

I don't need any embossing powder or eyelets. paper tags for note books, paper clips, index cards, I don't use a planner of any kind used stamps, or yarn and nothing that smells like pine. beauty makeup or spa products. I can only use a certain kind. no book pages


I do love elephants, please do not send anything made FROM elephants!!

Nothing Kawaii


I don't mind naked postcards! if you don't know what to write tell me about where you live what kind of historic places you have been to or live by. any ghost stores to share?

the only thing I ask is that the postcard has nothing to do with Alice in Wonderland in any way. that is the only thing I do not like.

Favorite Books

I don't read many books but I do like any thing by Dean R. Koontz. and Scott Cunningham, Judy hall, Teresa moorey

Favorite Music

I enjoy all the 80's music and country like Johnny Cash, Tim McGraw Vince Gill that kind of country :)

Comment: Hi Cyndi! Thank you for the lovely 'Buttercream' notecards--such beautiful designs--and your sweet note. I loved your story about seeing the Dalai Lama--that's exciting! It's funny to think of someone so 'enlightened' eating at Applebees . . . lol! Lovely swap and hope to swap together again soon!

Comment: Hi Cyndi, very cool NASA PC you sent, I love it. How exciting to hear you work on a navy base on the ocean. I love the ocean :) Blessings and have joy.
Comment: Thank you for the great websites. I may have to check them out if I ever get caught up with my pen pals that I do have. I have been spending too much time on Swap-bot and not enough time writing letters, I'm afraid.
