About Me

Update July 2, 2020

Hi Friends! How's 2020 treating you? I'm feeling like what I appreciate most of all these days is a handwritten note. We are all just people who have hopes and dreams and hard times, sometimes. I want to remember that, I want to spread that feeling of connection around. At the end of the day, we all have so much more in common than we realize.

So, you can sub in a note for a trade item anytime for me, I won't rate you down for it. I really don't need any more stuff :-) Tell me something about yourself, your day, pets, kids, a joke you heard, your favorite internet rabbit hole, habits you are trying to make or break, anything you want to say.

Wanna play a game? I'm going to put up a couple of questions to answer if you are writing to me in a swap. Or not, your choice :-)

1 Are you a starter or a finisher?

2 Do you ever hunt for answers or omens in dreams?

3 Where and when do you get your best ideas?

I live in Oregon - I've been here 20 years already. It's getting very crowded in Portland Metro and I'm starting to think about moving somewhere else. Suggestions welcome! 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 entering our third year as empty nesters, and it's starting to feel like our regular life. It feels unusual and special to have our sons in the house now. 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 other swaps, too!

Some of my favorite things: A personal note or letter, Mail tag, colored pens and markers (don't send them to me, but use them if you will) Really, anything colorful postcards from box sets (or books) zentangle, little dogs, coffee, 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 Superstore, Bonus Family, Comedians in Cars getting Coffee, 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 other hospital or crime shows like CSI.

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 an on again/off again 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've enjoyed Soul Collage in the past, and have done mini Soul Collage cards.

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

About Me

I'm learning Tarot - how fun! Also been attending workshops with the Oregon Friends of Jung and finding it fascinating. Analyzing my dreams has been an adventure and never boring.

Random Goodies

You don't need to send me anything just to include something. I have enough stuff, and really just want to get to know people. If you want, use your stuff to decorate what you are sending me :-)

If this happens to be a swap where you are required to include something, I especially appreciate:

stickers

blank postcards

unused postage stamps

tea bags - I like everything except plain black and chamomile

any fun coffee thing

ATCs - I'm starting to make these, so I like to see what other people do.

And what I appreciate most of all is a handwritten note. You can sub in a note for a trade item anytime for me, I won't rate you down for it. I really don't need any more stuff :-) Tell me something about yourself, your day, pets, kids, a joke you heard, your favorite internet rabbit hole, habits you are trying to make or break, anything you want to say.

Happy Mail, yay!

Comment: Hi Sherri! Thank you so much for this incredible card and stamps. This has been one of my favorite postcards I've ever received, and the stamps are so great. I'm glad someone else feels the same way about Outlander. I read, and loved, the first two books. Then I watched the third season on tv and didn't love it. I couldn't even make it through the third episode of the fourth season before I called it quits. I just became so uninterested. I feel like it really lost something when they left Scotland, but I can't put my finger on what exactly it is. Anyways, I hope you're doing well and staying safe if you're being affected by the wildfires. -Virginia

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!
