About Me

My name is Cynthia from the Pacific Northwest (Olympia, Washington). I am 44 years old and living with my husband and two young adult daughters, on a tiny hobby farm with 4 dogs, 3 cats, and some chickens.

I also work part-time at a pack-and-ship shop. A dream job for a snail mail junkie!

I hope to gain inspiration to do more crafts, share those crafts, swap postcards, pen pal letters, and more! !

Favorite Books

I absolutely love reading!! I am an avid reader, reading/listing to audiobooks up to 100 + a year.

I'll read just about any genre minus a few certain futuristic themes.

Favorite Crafts

I have been crafting my whole life and have yet to find a craft I haven't wanted to try.

Favorites are (the list is constantly growing)

  • Crocheting
  • Cross Stitching
  • Photography
  • Pocket Letters
  • ATC cards
  • Geli Pressing
  • Card Making
  • Collage Art Projects
  • Junk Journaling
  • Bullet Journaling
  • Small sewing Projects
  • Flipbooks


I DISLIKE crude, rude, or vulgarity. Otherwise, my likes list can be endless. I am not religious but not against receiving religious-themed crafts.

I genuinely love it when others swap with their own hearts in mind.

I do not have small children so please no children/school-age stickers or foam stickers.


I am a picky TV watcher and have a hard time sitting still for very long to sit through an entire show (let alone a movie) but when I do, I watch a diverse genre of TV shows ranging from Game of Thrones/House of Dragons, Pride, and Prejudice (BBC version), Sherlock Holmes (BBC version), Derry Girls, Witcher, Stranger Things, Perry Mason (both old and new series), True Detective, Peaky Blinders, Vikings, Golden Girls, Law n' Order, Babylon Berlin, Deutschland, Murder She Wrote, and Longmire (just to name a few)

As far as movies go I'm a big Lord of the Rings/Hobbit and Star Wars fan, Classic Disney Movies. I like classic black-and-white films, suspense/thriller (not horror), comedies, military, and movies based on books—too many to list. I'm not too fond of rom-com movies.

I do enjoy watching documentaries (all kinds from crime to nature, but especially Ken Burns)

Comment: Thanks for the weekend note card. It sounds like you really had a good weekend. I would like to start a junk journal. I bring know if its because I don't know where to start or I'm too disorganized.
Comment: I got your bird card, thanks for that! I don't know that bird! Today I went to a little forest and meadow and saw a few sparrows, flying after each other. It was hard to catch them on a foto! It were two a great spotted woodpeckers. I also saw a few Robbins, singing there song. When I went home, I got treated on a couple nuthatches! I was a nice round today!!
