About Me

UPDATE (again) in December 2017

Hello my friends! I am looking to unload some of my excess LB's, FB's, FS's, SB's, etc etc etc. I am looking to cut back on my swapping in the new year to focus on my current pen pals but do want to pass all my extras off so that they do make it home. I will still be swapping and finishing my current swaps, but will be cutting back in the new year! I feel as if I have been overwhelmed with life here recently and have not been enjoying the things that I used to love. So I am taking on less of a load that I hope to pick back up later down the road when I am no longer feeling so depressed.

Sending good vibes and grand adventuring your way! HAPPIEST SWAPPING! HAPPIEST HOLIDAYS!


I have been in a serious funk (nice word for depression) lately, so please forgive my late ratings. If you feel that I have missed your rating, please please please contact me, so that I can resort through my mail stack just to make sure that I have (in fact) received it.

I have tried keeping up with swaps and have done so, somewhat successfully. Thank you for your patience and kindness! If I have asked you for a re-rate previously, either recently or in the past, please let me make amends soon so that my mood can be lifted. I love to send mail!

Sending good vibes and a lot of light your way!


I am a 32 year old lady who lives in Kentucky with a dog named Jessie and a cat named Myrtle. I love to do yoga, read, and write.

I like eccentric folks.

I love to run, so every year, I am at most of the 5K races that are local to me. I love these events because the people are entertaining and interesting.

I am rather passionate about sending and receiving mail, so I am very excited to be a part of this community and can not wait to start swapping. Since I do have a lot of people that I write, I have a bit of an addiction to washi tape.

I also love movies, though I do not have cable, especially independent films. I have been to the Sundance Festival twice and had the time of my life. I watch most of my TV via Netflix or Hulu.

I walk my dog everyday, no matter what the weather is. Some days, I will walk her longer than others, obviously, because of weather.

I am a vegan, hippie chick who loves to drink coffee, tea, and wine.

Favorite Books

Anything by: Chuck Palahniuk, Hunter S Thompson, Kurt Vonnugut, Donna Tartt, or Monica Drake. I also really like debut novels. Some are a lot better than others but often times, I will read the debut novels of some more famous bestselling authors; for some reason, they seem more real to me.

Favorite Music

I have a huge vinyl record collection that I listen to everyday while I am drinking my coffee.

My favorite bands/artists include: Prince, Vampire Weekend, My Morning Jacket, Tracy Chapman, Idiot Glee, Ash Wednesday, Saving Jane, Johnny Cash, Lenny Kravitz, Idiot Glee

I also really enjoy going to live shows. I like going to metal and rap shows, even though I may not listen to them at home, as hypocritical as that may sound.

Favorite Television

Dexter, Weeds, Lost, The Big Bang Theory, Ancient Aliens, Feed the Beast, Preacher

Favorite Crafts

I really want to build a ship in a bottle once I have a place to store it.

I like to do puzzles and have a worked 1000 piece puzzle finished under a piece of glass on my kitchen table surrounded my postcards.

I will happily flip your friendship books, friendship sheets, and the occasional deco, no need to ask!

I also will swap vinyl records, fountain pen letters, and typewritten letters, for interested parties.

I love to draw and paint, even though I am not very good at it.

I like to make zines as well, but have not had the time to make one in a few months, since money is tight.

Favorite Random-ness

Some of my favorite drink beverages include Earl Grey, anything fruity, also stress release.

I also want to mention (again) that I am a vegan.

My favorite colors are blue, green, and orange.

I love incense, particularly the Dragon's Blood scent. I also love Eucalyptus because I feel like it helps a lot with my allergies and fall time sickness.

I like unique (the more eccentric the better) postcards/stationary/envelopes that represent whoever the person is. I am not picky and would really like to see a person's culture or just a person's personaility within a postcard or letter.

Thank you so much for my birthday card. The Trivia Pursuit game piece brought back memories. We would play for hours! And took it to all kinds of family functions.
