About Me

Hello! I am a 30ish mom who loves crafting, reading,cooking, BUJO and snail mail! I hope to exchange with you soon!

So let me explain my thing with pineapples. I love them, but don't eat them. I went to culinary school. In school my favorite culinary elective was food history. Did you know that in the 1800's if you were traveling and saw a pineapple in someone's window, it meant that they took in guest for trade. The pineapple is the international sign of hospitality. The Greeks even saw it as a sign of hospitality. I don't know why, but after learning about them and cooking with them, they became one of my favorite things. I can make many of dishes with pineapples. And I love to, but I don't like the way they taste. :( I have had pineapple decor way before it became so popular. My first tattoo was a pineapple on wrist way back in. 07' !Pineapple are just so awesome!


Favorite Music

So, I have different types of music I listen too when I am doing certain things or feeling certain ways. Like I only listen to country music in my car. When I am in the kitchen cooking I put on some Ray Charles Pandora radio. If I am cleaning house I'll put on some old school rock. If I am happy I am playing Billy Joel all day long!! If I am having a bad day I like to put on some piano music. If I am relaxing I like to listen to Carvan Palace on Pandora. Music is awesome. Oh and the only album that I have a adverse reaction to is Sublime's 3rd album, Sublim, can't listen to it!

Favorite Books

Anything by Paulo Colheo! A few of my favorite reads are:

*The Red Tent- by Diamant, Anita

*The Zookeeper's Wife- by Ackerman, Diane

*The Mummy, or Ramses the Damned-by Anne Rice

*Salem's Lot- by Stephen King

*Second Glance- by Jodi Picoult

I am always up for reading something new!!

Favorite Movies

Anything scary. But my all time fave is Children of the Corn! I am also in love with Spirted away! I watch it on a regular basis.

Favorite Television

Not big into TV. But I use to have an addiction to Law and Order.

Favorite Crafts

Crafts are my fav!! I love making wreaths and any DIY decor! I am always crafting something, if you would see you can find me on Instagram @pyneapplequeen I want to try my hand at pocket letters and flip books. I've been hand manking some cards. It's fun and kinda challenging for me. I craft because I find it relaxing, and amind break.



*Anything Ghibli studio


*Washi Tape

*Blackout poetry

*Pen Pals

*Happy snail mail

*Recipe card exchange

*Emails exchange




*brush lettering

*BUJO (Bullet Journaling)


*I am not easily offended. NSFW okay.

Snail Mail

I love snail mail! And I want to be able to swap so I always make a point to send my swap on time. If I am running late I will shoot you a PM. But if for some reason you do not receive a swap from please PM me so that I can make it up to you. (Oh and just bc I haven't click "sent" by the due date does not mean I didn't send it out on time. I am always forgetting to hit that button for some reason.) I don't want anyone to loose out on a swap bc something got lost in the mai or I messed up on an address. I am a busy momma of 3, but I promise to not take more swaps than I can handle. I can't wait to swap with you! Happy Swapping!!

Thanks for swapping with me! And I am always up for new pen pal or email pal, just PM me!!

What I want to learn more of..

I really enjoy learning about religion. If I didn't get into culinary school, my back up plan was to study world religions. I am fascinated my them. (Disclaimer: I am not religious, but do consider myself spiritual.)

I want to learn more about mindfulness and put it into practice.

I want to learn more about politics and law bc I think the shit is gonna hit the fan here in the USA sooner than later.

I want to learn more about photography and editing. I have a nice DSLR and lens, but I need to learn more get better.

Comment: Sorry for the late rating u_u I'm with you on loving Halloween<3 It definately is better than Christmas! I'm mostly subscribing to baking-magazines which isn't too good since I want to try half the stuff they come up with and don't have enough people to eat everything :D I love the doodles, I'm much too stick-in-the.old-behind-type of a person to have a bullet journal, I'd get excited for the first week and then when I'd inevitably miss a day or something I'd leave the whole thing behind :D Oh free tote! I'm sucker for canvas bags and that looks just about perfect in every aspect ;)

Gina - Thanks for sharing your ESG swaps with me, even though I wasn't your 'send-to' partner. It's nice getting to know you, and I love seeing your pix! thankyou

MissCharlieD on Sep 17, 2017:

Hi Gina! I also have different playlists for around the house! Reggaeton if I'm trying to clean, Blues if I'm cooking, Classic Rock when I'm crafting, and podcasts the rest of the time - I don't do silence well, apparently. Happy Swapping! - Charlie, via ESG: Quick friendly profile comment...Sorry for the duplicate comment, that's what I get for trying to do this on my phone!

Hi, I enjoyed reading your profile and was interested to read about pineapples. I love the taste of pineapples, but actually not so much as decorations. Jodie Picoult is one of my favourite authors and I want to read The Red Tent. I too have an addiction to Law & Order but only SVU. I love the unicorn image at the bottom of your profile page. Happy swapping, Ree x

Hi Gina, It's so rare to see a pineapple fan! How do you find the viral song PPAP? Also, have you tried making pineapple shrimp? I guess you probably have...but surprise, it's not popular at all in Chinese speaking areas. I don't know why, but it seems to be one of the most well known Chinese dishes in U.S. In Taiwan we only see it on weddings occasionally. Amy
