Hello!

My name is Ashley, I currently live in Virginia with my husband, our dog Sascha and cat Diesel but will be moving back to California this year. Which I'm really excited about because we lived there before and its just beautiful and there is always something to do.

I served 4 years in the US Navy as an Aerographers Mate doing weather and oceanography stationed in Okinawa, Japan. I then got my degree in Interior Design but now work as a Lab Planner designing and planning research laboratories for scientists.

The design aesthetic I love is Scandinavian, Industrial, Boho and Hygge.

Favorites: Color : Teal Animal : Tiger Dinosaur: Brontosaurus Candy: Gummy Bears & Dark Chocolate with sea salt or Caramel Car: 1970 Chevelle

TV Shows: Friends, Grey's Anatomy, The Chosen, The Voice, Makin It, The Great British Baking Show

Movies: The Shack, War Room, Bridesmaids, Paul-Apostle of Christ, The Notebook, Interstellar, The Pianist, Bring it On, The Upside, The Lion King, Aristocats, Wall-E, Up, Gone With the Wind, Double Indemnity, Casablanca, and lots of other classics on TCM.

I have always loved crafting and making things especially since being in school and creating all my art projects. I love craft journaling, and making things for other people. I usually bust out in song at least once a day. Some other hobbies are reading, drawing, coloring, dancing around my house, cooking, watching movies, gardening, house plants, hiking, surfing, enjoying the sunshine, coffee dates, thrifting, working on cars with my husband, riding motorcycles and dirt bikes. I think I have a new hobby of collecting postcards now too!

I absolutely love piano and have a dream of playing it one day! πŸ₯°

I'm weirdly overly sensitive so I love different smells (and some not so much haha) and I love textural objects. I tend to rub on things in stores as I walk past them be it blankets, plants, clothes etc.

I became a born-again Christian last year, which is my faith, belief and relationship with Jesus. Its the best gift I have ever received, and I love him so much! He completes me!

I love learning about different cultures and countries. I lived in Okinawa, Japan for a few years when I was in the Navy. I learned a little Japanese, enjoyed some incredible food and overall loved the people and living there!

I always love to open the mail box to see a package or letter and look forward to brightening someone else's day with snail mail as well!

Please message me if there is anything wrong with any package or letter. If it goes missing I am happy to send another and if for some reason I was short on postage I will refund you.

TEAS/COFFEE/HOT CHOCOLATE/TREATS

I love everything tea, coffee, and hot chocolate. Chai lattes are the best! Please send me your favorites and maybe it will become my new favorite as well.

I also love snacks or candies from other countries. My husbands family is from Austria so we can't go a winter without our tin of Lebkuchen-Schmidt.

I love to receive and family recipes you'd like to share for anything, cooking, Baking, treats, etc.

The only flavor I am not a fan of is licorice.

Comment: Hello. I am confused when I received your postcard because your slapped stickers was pasted on the addresses area. I have hard time searching from whom and what swap was it. It was indeed something different. Thank you for the swap!❀️

Comment: Thank you for the Great Lakes pc and congrats on your 8 year of marriage! I've never been to the Great Lakes but would love to one day. My husband traveled for work and has been there, someday I hope we can travel to some of the places he's been to. Thanks again! :)
Response: You're welcome! I haven't technically either but it could be pretty cool to visit. The closest I have been is Navy boot camp in Great Lakes, Illinois but didn't get to see much outside the base. 🀣

Comment: ❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️WOW! WOW! WOW! Oh my, I am flabbergasted with this swap I received. It is the most incredible package I have ever received. I can't even put into words how stunning and beautiful every single piece of this package is. Wow! I absolutely love every single piece and I feel like I just opened a beautiful gift. The stamp is one of my favorite versesπŸ’—, gorgeous washi tape, so so so many beautiful pieces of ephemera and stickers that you hand picked and packaged so professionally. And ribbons, shaped paperclips, wax seals, and the bookmark 🀯 it's beautiful and a gorgeous idea for a Bible, to jot down verses in, or in a journal, so many places this type of bookmark can be special. Thank you so so very much for this incredible gift.πŸ’“
Response: You're welcome! Thank you for all the hearts and love!!! I'm so happy you love it! I hope it inspires you and gives you encouragement! I love making those bookmarks too, they are so easy to make! Talk soon! πŸ₯°

Comment: Sorry I was so long in getting this rated. I have colored many of these cards as I have been in many of these swaps over the last few years. I also have quite a few coloring books that I like to do .
Response: It was fun and reminded me to be a kid and have fun coloring not to be so hard on myself even if I colored outside the lines! Hope you continue to enjoy that hobby!

Comment: Sorry I didn't get this rated sooner. I did like the card. I really don't eat cereal anymore but I have plenty of cards from boxes that I had eaten before I started changing my diet to lose weight.
Response: That's OK, I understand! Just glad to know it made it. I definitely should not have this cereal in our house anymore either! πŸ™ˆ good luck on your weightloss journey and for inspiring me to also make better choices.
