hi

Hi! I'm Michelle from Washington up in the great Pacific Northwest.

Brem ME Ginny

I live with my fiance and our furry lionhead rabbits - Ginny & Vader.
(the bunnies do not come in contact with my mail so don't worry about pet hair!)


I like to travel/do road trips and I'm trying to visit all 50 states. So far, I've visited 36!

-Some of the prettiest ones I've been to (landscape wise) are: Montana, West Virginia, Oregon & Utah!
-Some of my favorite towns/cities are: Saratoga Springs NY, Charleston SC, Missoula, MT, San Francisco & Leavenworth WA.

I was raised between two mountain ranges & a never-ending landscape of trees & I love it. I'd rather live in the country over the city so if you have cards with small towns, I'd prefer it over big city cards.

As for outside the US, I have only been to Canada (I love Vancouver!), Philippines, Japan & Taiwan.


origin of my name: CHOWEFACE came from my baby sister. When she was small, she couldn't say Michelle so it came out as "me-chow" which eventually just turned to 'chowe' (she added the E on the end). Close friends and family picked up on it so now I get called CHOWE, CHOWEFACE or CHOWDER.


Things I love include road trips, going to baseball games, going to museums, pub trivia, hiking to waterfalls, writing, cooking (I have lots of cookbooks) and reading.


Love Sports- here are my favorite teams:

BASEBALL SOCCER HOCKEY FOOTBALL BASKETBALL COLLEGE COLLEGE

I watch the Olympics too. I love watching Winter Olympics more- I watch ski jumping, curling, hockey & figure skating! Team USA!

Brem

I watch ALL genres but I prefer raunchy comedies, musicals and heist movies.

Fav movies are:
-Scott Pilgrim vs the World
-Ready Player One
-10 Things I Hate About You
-Some Like it Hot
-Cabin in the Woods
-Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Dracula EvilExes

movie franchises I love: HP, LOTR, Star Wars, MARVEL & Mission: Impossible.

I'll watch anything from Broken Lizard and Matthew Vaughn & Edgar Wright make fun movies.

Brem

I participate in the PopSugar reading challenge as well as Goodreads reading challenge. I read a lot of books that are under 300 pages so I've given myself a goal to read 200 books in 2021.

I grew up with Harry Potter so that's a fav for me. I re-read the series every few years but I really enjoy Book 4 and 7 the most.

I read a lot of Romance, Thrillers and YA. I also like to read dystopian and autobiographies/memoirs.

James Rollins is one of my fav authors, I have all his books and met him years ago at a meet & greet. I had him sign the very first book of his I bought! I was hardcore fangirling. He writes historical fiction.

FEEL FREE TO GIVE ME BOOK SUGGESTIONS WHEN SENDING A CARD!

I love Little Free Libraries & have visited all the ones around me. I've gotten some really great books from it. It's a great way for me to de-stash too!


I also used to dabble in fan fiction in High School and wrote 10+ stories regarding Taiwanese pop stars (I went through a phase lol). I'm back to writing again but original stories this time!

Brem

I'm a big TV watcher. I try to watch the pilot episode of EVERY new show so at least I know what the show is about. If I like the pilot episode, then I'll go and watch more but I have stopped mid-season on some because I lost interest.
But really, chances are I've watched (or seen an episode) of a show you watch. I also watch lots of cooking shows and cartoons.

Favorite TV shows: 'I Love Lucy' & 'Supernatural'

Dean

SPOILER: I'd like to say that I did NOT enjoy the SPN finale. Yes, I cried and all but Dean deserved better than that. The boys should've died in a blaze of glory or livin' their best life- TOGETHER.

Steven Bears

I've also been watching MTV's 'The Challenge' since 2000 & I'm always rooting for CT.

Brem

I listen to a bit of everything but I tend to lean towards country the most. I love a good love song (like Cover Me Up) or heartbreak song (like I'm Not The Only One). I do listen to slow songs more but it's always fun blasting some Cardi B in the car too.

Always a favorite:
Mumford & Son's 'Sigh No More' album
'Poison' by Bel Biv DeVoe
'Still Loving You' by Scorpions
ABBA
Musicals & Disney songs
The original F4 (Jerry, Ken, Vic & Vanness)
Country- the more twang, the better!

BSB forever!

BSB

Podcasts!

I always listen to 'My Favorite Murder' on my drive to work. #SSDGM

Brem

LOOKING FOR:

cards from Islands- any is appreciated but it would be awesome if it was a map or aerial view of island.

Looking for pcs from these places that I visited but never got a chance to get a PC from:
Klamath Falls, OR
Fort Smith, AR
Cheyenne, WY
Farmington, NM
Moab, UT
Amarillo, TX

^^ even if the city, state card you have is not listed above, feel free to send! :) I'd love to have a card from your town!

My dad's hometown is Gary, Indiana so if you have any cards from there (or Portage), I'd love to have it!

LANTERN PRESS

I like all types but these ones are my favorites to collect:
Starry Night versions
Typography
Sign Destinations

Starry Night Typography Signs

I'll also take Washington cards, even though I live here. I have a special box for all WA cards & the ones people send me are always new to my collection! :)

PCs I don't like:
-Coloring Cards
-Quote cards / cards with only writing on it
-Blurry views (blurry zazzle suckssss)
-Those "vintage" cards that are brown on the back side
-Advertising Cards (unless I join a swap that calls for it)
-Not really a big fan of black & white pcs either so if you can send a different card in its place, I'd appreciate it

Postcard Swaps

Love touristy cards most- illustrated & photography.

I'm not easily offended and I do have a small collection of nude/risque cards so send them my way if you like. I will also take LGBTQ+ cards too. ~Love is love!~

--Sending in envelope: I love all colors so any envelope color is fine.--

If given an option, I prefer written & stamped.


I do a lot of the Scavenger Hunts and swaps involving multiple cards in an envie so here's a list to make it easier for people sending me cards:

  • Animal Cards: arctic animals like walruses, wolves, orcas & polar bears. (any bears or dogs are good too) - I'm not a cat person but I realize I join cat swaps & it's because I love cartoon cat cards. So if you send cat cards, I prefer them to be cartoon or drawings rather than real photo.
  • City/Town Views: I prefer if they were aerial view or a view of downtown. I especially like small town & farm cards or little known places. I also like the cards that say Amish Country.
  • Africa: All countries
  • Art Cards: Still life of fruits, like ones from Cezanne.
  • Asia: Cambodia, Laos, Middle East. I was born in Olongapo City, Philippines so I'd love any cards from there too
  • Canada: I'd like to collect cards from all the provinces, cards with the province name or town in that province. I'd also love to collect a map of each province if they have them
  • Christmas cards: religious or not- all OK! I especially like the ones with glitter and snow scenes. You can even send Hanukkah ones if you like.
  • Collectible Types: Lali Riddle, Blue Cats from Russia (Irina Zeniuk?), Tarusov Pin ups, Lena Gnedkova, Postallove, WOW, FOTW, Icons Of...
  • College/University: any schools, even High Schools if you have them.
  • Disney: Beauty & the Beast, Lilo & Stitch, Aladdin, Moana, Rescues Down Under, Emperor's New Groove
  • Europe: Norway, Sweden, Wales, Armenia, Hungary, Iceland, Scotland
  • Flower: daffodils, dahlias, ranunculus, poppies, peonies, Bromeliads, bouquets (all colors good)
  • Food: recipes, Taiwan food cards, Singapore food cards, beer/liquor, weird food
  • Military: all branches, WW2, naval ships, british royal family
  • Handmade: ones that are done professionally are OK (like vistaprint) but I don't care for ones on cardboard. If sending naked, please make sure that it won't smear- it rains in Seattle so the card can get wet!
  • Landscape/Nature: anything nature related! Sunsets and waterfalls are a personal favorite. A volcano erupting would be cool too!
  • Map Cards: any except subway maps
  • Multi-Views: the more little pictures, the better! I also like cards that have a montage of landmarks from a state with the state's name on the front
  • National Parks: Would love to have at least one card from every Nat'l Park- Like real photo cards, not an art style like Anderson Design Group (cause I have those already)
  • Non-Traditional cards: Shaped, 3D, Glitter, Chrome, Maxi, Cut-out, Cork, Wooden - love them all!
  • Other Countries: Pacific Islands, New Zealand, Greenland? Do those exist?
  • Pixar: Brave, Coco
  • Risque: nudity, dirty jokes, Pin-ups, etc... Send them my way! I'm totally fine getting these
  • Sanrio: Not a huge fan but I do adore Gudetama. (No Hello Kitty though)
  • South America: Ecuador, Bolivia, Paraguay, Venezuela
  • Sports: All sports, either Stadiums, players and Olympics. I especially like Football & Baseball. No cartoon versions please.
  • State Capitols: I'd like it to say 'state capitol' on the front if possible
  • Structures: dams, bridges, monuments
  • US Maps: I have a box just for these so any and all is GREAT but I do need more of Alaska, Colorado & Rhode Island!
  • Zazzle: generally I'm OK receiving these but don't send me one if the writing is blurry! Also, no zazzle Lantern Press (not the same size!)

SENDING EXTRAS or GOODIES??

Things I like:
Washi - samples are awesome
Stamps
Stickers - not reward or teacher ones
Notecards with floral or nature designs

Things I don't like:
Puffy Stickers on PCs (on envelopes are fine)
Tea/coffee - I honestly won't use them.
Paper/scraps - If you do send any, I give them to other people so they won't go wasted
Ribbons/paperclips - I'll give these to other people as well.

Bye!

Comment: Thank you for the great PCs, and for sharing that cool fun fact about Port Townsend! It makes that card extra special when you know something about the place. Maybe someday post-pandemic I can visit the festival. :)
