About Me

I like sending and receiving mail-postcards, letters, treats, random stuff.

I love fonts, typography, graphic design, popular culture, photography, letterpress design, and calligraphy.

I collect cameras/photography related stuff and postcards and ephemera and craft supplies and books.

I am a high school English teacher, single without kids, and I have a dog named Gulliver. I just love sending treats to people by mail! Swapping is something I take pride in doing, and I would never intentionally flake. If you haven't received something from me, please message me and I'll resend.

POSTCARDS

LIKES I love photography, black and white cards, cards with unusual typography, cameras or typewriters, and alphabets or text.

I have ordered unique pcs from Redbubble, a site that enables artists to sell their designs in a variety of formats (note cards and pcs, towels, art prints, etc.). I really like the quality of the pcs I ordered, and I got 30% off because I ordered more than 8 pcs. (I don't know if that discount was a promotion or if it's standard.)

DISLIKES Touristy postcards are okay but not my favorite.

CRAFTS

I sometimes do Project Life (not every week, just when I have the time), and I usually do Ali Edwards™s yearly One Little Word project. I love sending and receiving mail. I have a subscription to Pipsticks, a the monthly sticker pack.

I'm single without kids so my PL album is kind of a journal mixed with some photos of my dog and me. I don't use that many embellishments, but sometimes I can't resist. Punctuation marks and alphabets are two of my favorites.

STUFF I LOVE

Washi tape--Chevrons, silver, stars, stripes, rainbow, ombre, and unusual patterns

Pens--I love Pigma Micron 05 (that's 0.45 mm) by Sakura in any color, and I like Sharpie pens (not the markers). I use a black one to write pcs & notes. I also like PaperMate InkJoy gel pens; they come in a rainbow of colors and medium & fine tips. JetPens is a great online source for good pens. They sell component pens in many varieties so much cooler than the 4-color ballpoint variety. And I just discovered Pentel Hybrid Dual Metallic pens; I love them: glittery goodness!

Markers--I mostly use a bullet-tip set by Stabilo and dual-tip set by PrismaColor for my coloring needs. I wish I could get PrismaColors in every color, but at $3/marker, that's not going to happen. They are so smooth and saturated though! (Although that saturation means they bleed through thin paper.)

Notecards--I love clever, ironic, and/or endearing cards. If they're letterpress, even better. Some brands I love: Elum, Hello!Lucky, Smudge Ink, Snow and Graham, and Greenwich Letterpress.

Mini-buttons/badges--I collect the 1 inchers. They usually have a pin backing but sometimes a magnet backing--either type works for me if the design is to my liking. Badge Bomb has a lot of styles I like:Badge Bomb

PLEASE DON'T SEND

  • food, coffee, or tea
  • lip balm, lotions, or soaps
  • make-up
  • teacher/reward stickers

Comment: Your postcard finally arrived today. You had written a wrong postcode. That's why it took so long! Thank you anyway!
Response: Oh brother—So sorry. I had another partner in Germany and she didn’t get her postcard yet either. I wonder if I swapped the post codes. Glad it finally got there!

Comment: Thanks for the lovely post card. It was very relaxing. I had a good break, i hope that you do feel the better for yours. I know i must be mad but I m part of a research project at Glasgow university​. We go into a primary school to help kids with their literacy and numeracy. Then they assess the benefits to us (all pensioners) in terms of our mental health, memory etc. It has it's moments! Best wishes
