About Me

I'm married and have 1 dog and 2 cats. I'm a teacher librarian. I love to travel.

Please! If you don't receive a swap from me, let me know and I will be happy to re-send. I have found that the USPS is unreliable. They lose mail often, and they even returned to me the entire top inch of an envelope I sent, the rest of which was just lost due to their machine tearing it up.

If you receive something from me with postage due, please tell me and I will reimburse you for it.

Please rate me--I want to know that you received my swap because I DO NOT flake!

Likes / Dislikes

I don't expect to receive extras in my swaps--I rate and give hearts based on the swap itself.

While I like anything that a person is nice enough to send me, I don't particularly care for cartoon-themed items or country/western items.

And please, no friendship books/sheets, decos, etc.--I don't swap those.

My favorite color is red, but I like all colors.

Following are some particular likes:

notecards, handmade or store-bought

stationery, handmade or store-bought

washi tape--any design, any size

ribbon, lace, fibers--any length


I'm not an artist by any means, but I love to make greeting cards and other paper crafts like bookmarks. Pinterest has provided me with much inspiration! Swap-bot introduced me to ATCs, inchies/twinchies, handmade postcards, flip books, and pocket letters.

I also love to cross-stitch--I guess because I can't draw pretty pictures, I get some satisfaction out of stitching them.

I love sending and receiving mail, so I have several penapls.


Currently Reading: Angelika Frankenstein Makes Her Match by Sally Thorne

I love reading. Stephen King is a long-time favorite author, but I like most genres of fiction. Romance and westerns are my least favorite. I don't care for most nonfiction, especially self-help and professional. I'm in a book club that meets once a month.

Latest movie watched: Moonfall

Currently streaming: Outlander S.2

I watch A LOT of TV! Too much, probably, but I enjoy it. I used to go to the cinema several times a month--there's just something I love about the dark theater, the loud audio, the big screen, oh, and the popcorn! Now I just stream movies and shows.

I used to be more interested in music than I am now, but I do like listening to it in the car and when I clean house or read. Some of my favorite artists are Alanis Morissette, Muse, Of Monsters and Men, and Mumford and Sons. I don't care for country music or rap.

Comment: Such a wonderful notecard! Thank you. I enjoyed reading it. I too love to read, I win a few off Goodreads.com giveaways. I love your bingo challenge! Now that is one heck of a big book, I am glad you are enjoying it. I'll be jumping into a newer Dean Koontz book! Happy Reading!
Response: I've joined some Goodreads giveaways but haven't won anything yet. I finished the book I was reading, and it was so good! Now I'm reading The House Across the Lake by Riley Sager. It started out kind of slow and repetitive, but now it's getting interesting. I'm glad you enjoyed the notecard. Thanks for the heart!

Hello! This is the poem I wrote for the Haiku for You swap. I hope you like it.

A misty morning

Tiny water droplets cling

Haiku For You swap

Hello, Anita! This is my very first haiku, hope you like it.

Haiku name: Dew Drops

Beads of water race

To the tip of leaves and stop

For a while, then drop.

I love your job title! Combines two of the professions I admire. Have a nice day.

-Hilori :)
