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!
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!
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!!
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.
Not big into TV. But I use to have an addiction to Law and Order.
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
*Happy snail mail
*Recipe card exchange
*BUJO (Bullet Journaling)
*I am not easily offended. NSFW okay.
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!!
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.
