About Me

I live in Oregon - I've been here nearly 20 years already and wouldn't want to be anywhere else. I grew up in the Chicago area (suburban and ex-urban) - it's a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there now :-)

My husband and I are very recent (Fall 2016) empty nesters, and we are still figuring out this new, no-kids-at-home life. We aren't completely lonely though, our two little dogs make sure we have the opportunity to keep "parenting", haha.

I joined swap-bot for postcard swapping, but I'm having so much fun doing arty swaps, I'd rather do that than postcards.

Some of my favorite things: washi tape, stickers, colored pens and markers, zentangle, variegated color embroidery floss, little dogs, coffee with almond milk, all kinds of tea, yoga, and morning pages (The Artists Way).

Favorite Music

About ten years ago my favorite radio station became an "oldies" station, and I decided it was time to branch out into new music. I listen to KINK.fm, a local Portland, OR radio station. It's a good mix of classic and new Adult Contemporary music. Who/what I want to listen to varies from day to day. On my favorite playlist you will find: Paul Simon Stevie Wonder Matt Nathanson KT Tunstall John Mayer Joni Mitchell James Taylor Bob Schneider Chris Isaaks Dire Straights Avett Brothers Fleetwood Mac and others I'm forgetting :-)

Favorite Television

We don't have broadcast or cable TV, but Netflix keeps us well entertained. I like Modern Family, Orange is the New Black, Grace and Frankie, House of Cards, Downtown Abbey. From the oldies but goodies file - MASH, ER, Friends...

I used to love a show called The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd (starring Blaire Brown) - anyone remember that show? It was never released on VHS/DVD as far as I know - something about the music rights. I'd be so curious to see it again, see if it holds up for me.

But, my (secret) guilty pleasure is Grey's Anatomy (yikes! It's getting SO soap opera, but I just can't stop watching...) AND, now my new guilty pleasure is Reign (on Netflex). Beautiful people, beautiful costumes, intrigue, romance, ahhhh...

Favorite Movies

We watch a wide variety of movies. It's hard to call favorites. Anything from the subscription service Film Movement is usually always good. They are foreign films - we get them at the library. I really enjoy foreign films, because I never know what to expect. It's fun to see different cultures, and wonder at the cultural references that we are missing in the subtitles.

Favorite Crafts

I am a new art journaler - I don't make as much time for it as I would like. I'm a huge fan of Lisa Sonora - 30 Day Journal Project, among other things.

I also knit and cross-stitch, but haven't done them in a while. Since starting on Swap-bot, I've rekindled my love of Zentangle :-) I also want to get started with ATCs. I've enjoyed Soul Collage in the past, and have done mini Soul Collage cards.

I'm just having so much fun being artsy again!

Favorite Postcards

I like postcards that are colorful, quirky or unusual. Handmade cards are just fine with me, as are cards in envelopes - especially if you think they might be damaged. See the links at the top of the page for my postcrossing profile if you want more information about my postcard preferences :-)

Random Goodies

I love all sorts of goodies! Surprises are fun :-)

If you want ideas, I especially appreciate:

washi tape

embellishments for papercrafting

stickers (I get Pipsticks, but just getting started)

blank postcards (see above)

unused postage stamps

tea bags - I like everything except plain black and chamomile

any fun coffee thing

variegated embroidery floss

Happy Mail, yay!

Comment: Hi Sherri, Well, yep it was weird! All the things one the card doesn't make sense to me either. The Prince thing really baffles me! :P I hope you go to India eventually - I went to India last year and loved it - it's another world, really. Philippe

Comment: Hello! I'm sorry for rating a bit late. I got your postcard safe and sound. :) No, I'm not a librarian. I'm an information desk assistant, but mostly I work with our literacy department. I'd love to write you a response postcard! Maybe message me an address I can send it to? (if you want to, of course) All the best! Lauren

Comment: Sorry for late rating - I have piles of paper everywhere and just found your letter😊 Enjoyed reading it. Loved your personalized stationery 😊 And of course I LOVED the Tolkien quote postcard! Thank you so much! It's going up in my bulletin board with a postcard of Thoren Oakenshield and a post card of the Shire πŸ’• How neat to see the Oregon Trail. I'm going to see if I can find Meek's Trail, sounds like my kind of movie.

Hi Sherri!

Thank you for your reply to Mail Tag #2. I had so much fun reading though your answers especially in the beginning - regarding your favorite quote- "can I pick two? I guess I can, its not like you can stop me' haha

You sound a lot like me and I have a feeling we'd get along great - it will be a pleasure replying to your letter

Hope you have a great weekend ahead!
