About Me

Hi! My name is Michelle. I"m 38 years old. I am a Mom to an 18 year old son. We have a cat, Mercedes, who rules the house from the door knobs and down. We are outdoorsy, hunt, fish, hike and during the work week we are working professionals.

Things I like: tea, ciders, Pineapple and Strawberry Crush drink packets and Dr. Pepper.

Geometric shapes, Hello Kitty, Snowmen, Cats, Gerbena Daisies, learning things about other cultures, postcards, Tuesday Night Trivia, punny/dad jokes.

Music & Books

I listen to such a wide variety of music it scares most people. I listen to music that is both popular in the US, artists from other countries, and across a wide variety of genres. A smile is the only thing that out does my belief that music is one thing that transcends every culture.

I enjoy reading and much like my music I don't exactly read a lot of "main stream stuff."

I use my public library to listen to audio books via overdrive and/or Libby. I also enjoy Librovox.org books.

I actively track on Good Reads. Link to my account is above.

Wishlist

--work appropriate short jokes (dad jokes) written on a sticky note.

--snail mail games to be played in the mail

--stickers nickle sized or larger

--address labels (I am moving in Approximately August of 2019, Can still currently use with address on file)

--Puzzle Postcards

--postcards (especially non-tourist)

--Notecards

--quotes and verses (especially positive ones)

--reading lists.

--Netflix recommendations

--Alexa tips

--recipes

--bookmarks

--fun puzzles

--bath salts, bubble baths, small lotions

--Mint flavored anything lotion, chap stick, candies, tea, etc

--single serving drink mixes like Crystal light (non green tea)

-3.5" Go Cutter Tumblers of 100% cotton -2.5 inch squares of 100% cotton

-Gutterman 100% Cotton Thread. (I have an older machine this is the stuff that works the best in my machine). Any color.

--Cat Nip Toys, small cat toys. She's picky so please don't spend an excessive amount of funds on these.

--Essential oils. Just about any of them

--images from magazines and such (not computer generated art but actual pictures) of ADULTS bicycling, any season.

--colored paper clips, I work in a busy medical office I can have colored paper clips but not the fun shapes or the ones that flags on them. Just the plain colored ones.

-more hours in the day

Postcards

I like standard sized postcards.

I like a postcard that says stuff on it (example The front contains an Elk. I like when the back says "This is an elk, native animal to the mountain regions of the US and eastern Asia. It eats plant matter, sheds it's horns in the spring and typically females have one calf in the spring."

Instead of "Elk--Cervus Canadensis")

I like animals, scenery, cats, hedgehogs, pigs, quilts, pretty much anything really.

If you have an odd, dirty, or inappropriate postcard, or one that you ended up with and you simply do not know where to use it....please send it my way and let me know that it is a postcard of this nature.

Most of what I have access to in my area is tourist postcards and love getting non-tourist postcards that are blank for sending.

I also participate with postcrossing.com

Living Hours Away 2.0

For the 2nd time in a four year relationship my boyfriend and I will be living apart from one another. It's a long story but I promise you'd understand our reasons.

Since we will be 3 hours away (the previous time was 12 hours by train & 3 hours in the car) I plan to resume my postcard and letter writing.

He loves dinosaurs! If you have any dinosaur note-cards, postcards, or stickers I would love them. He is especially fond of T-Rex.

He hopes to one day work on a fossil dig.

I also live 2 hours in the other direction from my siblings, niece, and parents. I am blessed to have an aunt and a few cousins here in town, so I'm not totally alone!

Geocaching & Pokemon Go

if you do not know what geocaching is www.geocaching.com

I'm washington_maverick on there as well. I have over 1800 finds. I do participate with trackables and within a short amount of time can hit WA, OR, and ID (Please do NOT purchase a new trackable for me. I will pass them along but do not wish to own my own).

Because of this hobby I am always looking for small items to leave in caches like mini toys, small pens/pencils, match box cars, etc.

I am also an avid Pokemon Go Player! I am Team Mystic and My favorite Pokemon is actually SPOINK! He makes me smile ever time I see him!

Calendars & Mints

My family and I do a "Calendars & Mint Party." At this party we fill out our calendars for the coming year with birthdays, anniversaries and dates to remember loved ones who have passed. We also make a buttercream mint and somebody has a random craft.

We produce complete with stickers 10-12 calendars a year for our use.

Seeking the following stickers small enough for a calendar square:

--January 1st like fireworks --Milk --Milk & Cookies
--Dr Pepper --Tools (like car or woodworking)
--Tire stickers --Wolverine --The Blue Ninja Turtle
--Sport Teams (Green Bay Packers, The Bears, and Denver Broncos, 49ers and Seahawks) --Small Hearts --Small Stars --Wedding Anniversary sticker (the ones that say "Anniversary") --Thanksgiving --Tiny groundhog --crosses/nativity

Thanks, But No Thanks

I try hard to not be picky but a few things, I don't like....

*glitter

*bits of papers

*list pads

*single random playing cards

Hi Michelle, I received your envelope today and had no idea what it could be, but just adored the little pengies that sealed it up. What a great surprise to find the lyrix you sent. I can't wait to complete them and send them on. :) Thank you.
