About Me

Hello from Minot, ND! My name is Aleesha, I am 45 years old, been married to my husband for 22 years and have a stepson (28) & son (21). I am patiently waiting to one day become a grandma - LOL, so in the meantime I baby our 2 dogs, Millie & Cooper! I have worked for our city government for 19 years - the last 12 have been as a GIS Coordinator. I love my job - making interactive maps for the public is very satisfying to me and also making maps for internal use by all departments to help them analyze assets. When I'm not working, I love to be crafting. Lately I have been obsessed with cardmaking, inkbox cards, journaling and ATC's, but I have recently discovered Decos and I think i might have a new obsession. I love die cuts and clear stamps. I spend a lot of time on Pinterest and YouTube also.

I have been penpaling for several years as well and enjoy swapping crafty letters with my pen pals.

I love receiving scenic/touristy postcards of your hometown and I'm still trying to fulfill my collection of naked postcards from all 50 states. I have been doing Post Crossing for a few years as well.

If I'm not crafting, I enjoy reading (Thrillers), doing jigsaw puzzles, diamond painting, genealogy, and watching all kinds of tv! I enjoy decorating for all holidays and seasons, and Halloween is my favorite.

If you want to know more about me, please feel free to ask. I look forward to swapping with you all, and if you're interested in a private swap just let me know.

Also, if my packages or letters arrive with postage due, please contact me and I will make it right! Our post office is horrendous and I only have half hour lunches which don't allow me enough time to stand in land and wait for someone to help as the lines are often very long. I try my best to get it right using their guide system, but if I get it wrong, I am more than happy to send you postage to compensate :)

Favorite Music

I love most music, but my favorite would definitely be pop rock. Some of my favorite artists are Post Malone, Miley Cyrus, Lizzo, Sam Smith, & Daughtry. I love 80's music as well and older stuff such as Credence Clearwater, Stevie Wonder & Conway Twitty!

Favorite Books

I read mostly thrillers. My favorite authors are Freida McFadden, Mark Edwards, Tarryn Fisher, and Jennifer Hillier. Occasionally I like to try other genres, and I haven't found a Colleen Hoover book I haven't absolutely loved yet! I'm always looking for bookmarks :)

Favorite Movies

I love action movies. Bruce Willis is my favorite actor - Die Hard is my all-time favorite movie. I also like Jason Statham and Kevin Costner. I also enjoy Melissa McCarthy when I need a good laugh. Some of my all time favorites are: Wizard of Oz, The Sound of Music, The Goonies, Tombstone, and The Expendables.

Favorite Television

There might not be enough space here to list all my favorite shows!!! I've been a Days of Our Lives fan for about 30 years. I like to watch, The Resident, The Good Doctor, Chicago Med, Fire & P.D, New Amsterdam, The Masked Singer, 9-1-1, 9-1-1 Lonestar, Station 19, Tulsa King, Mayor of Kingstown, and anything true crime (Dateline, 20/20, First 48, Forensic Files, etc...).

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy:
Card making
mini albums
Pocket letters
DIY crafting
paper crafts

Please note that I really don't need any extras and they are not necessary for me to give a heart rating. I really don't have a lot of room to store more stuff, but if you would like to send something, I would appreciate the following:

  • Stickers/Vinyl Stickers (not reward stickers)
  • Postcards (naked or blank)
  • ATC's
  • Deco's
  • A doodle from you to add to my journal

If you are from a state listed below, I would LOVE a naked touristy type postcard to help complete my 50 state collection, otherwise I like most all postcards. Please no homemade postcards or nudity though. I love Zazzle cards and don't mind them even if the swap says No Zazzle cards! I do prefer they are sent naked (written & stamped), but I don't mind non-touristy blank ones as well as I send them to seniors to help brighten their day. State Postcards I still need:
* Delaware
* Idaho
* Iowa
* Kentucky
* Rhode Island
* South Dakota
* Utah

Thank YOU for sending home my ELF postcard through the RR Traveling PC swap! It's always fun to get one home and see where it's been! I'm from Forman, ND and went to college in Grand Forks many years ago. I still have a soft spot for ND.
