About Me

Hello everyone! I enjoy sending and receiving happy snail mail. I live in North Carolina and am a Wisconsin transplant. I have no human babies, I had one elderly fur-baby - Mr. Carter the Cat a/k/a Grandpa Kitty, who passed away in December 2021 at the ripe old age of 21! I am currently looking to adopt one, or two, new fur babies from a rescue - cats are like potato chips, you can't have just one!

I mainly like to do postcard, note card, and letter swaps. Please do not feel it is necessary to send any extras items to earn a heart. I already have way, way too much in my inventory and I'm trying to minimize!

Postmarks: My mail is now being delivered and picked-up very late in the day - as late as 8:00 PM, even on the weekends! I hit the send button once I have placed outgoing mail in the box, but obviously with the mail being picked-up so late, it most likely will not be postmarked until the next day.

Favorite Books

I enjoy most books, historical fiction, travel memoirs, and biographies. I will read just about anything, there have been maybe two or three books I started but did not finish because I did not like them.

Favorite Crafts

I do creative journaling; it started off as a bullet journal/planner and has morphed into a planner, journal, devotional and anything and everything else. I'm already working on spreads for 2023 and the color theme is pastels.

Hobbies

Postcrossing is my version of armchair traveling! I love to travel, and Postcrossing helps with the travel bug. I am currently in the initial stages of planning my next trip which will be either Morocco or walking the Camino de Santiago - hopefully in September 2021, now put off until 2023. I'll just re-celebrate the milestone birthday from 2021. Any recommendations or suggestions would be appreciated.

Walking / hiking and generally being outdoors, but there is nothing about camping that I enjoy - it's too much work to be enjoyable.

Favorite Television

I'm not much of a TV or movie watcher, but will occasionally will subscribe to Netflix when new seasons of The Crown, Grace & Frankie, Messiah, Emily in Paris, Bridgerton and Sweet Tooth become available.

Likes

I love all things stationery (paper, notecards, journals, stickers, washi tape & gel pens);

All things pineapple and lemon;

I have become obsessed with the 'hello' and 'choose joy' motifs;

I'm a Francophile so that includes anything French related (Eiffel Tower, macaroons, lavender, berets, etc.);

Travel themed stickers and washi tape;

Pastel dies cuts/ephemera for 2023 journal;

Journal prompts;

Quotes;

Religious items: I am a Christian and I enjoy learning about the various religions of the world. Feel free to send something related to your faith for learning purposes.

Butterflies;

Pinwheels;

Flowers: poinsettias, magnolias, peonies and geraniums

Animals: Cats, Hedgehogs, Llamas, Otters, Owls, Lambs/Sheep and Giraffes (adult appropriate ones are a challenge to find); and

Vespa / scooter - I have always wanted one, hopefully someday I'll own one.

Dislikes

Glitter - it usually ends up all over the house and my face!

Hello Kitty - yes, I'm a cat person, but I simply do not appreciate Hello Kitty items.

Disney or any other childish styles;

Cosmetics, bath and body products - I love them, but I now have allergies to a multitude of the ingredients :(

Teas

I Iike earl grey tea, but my favorites are mint, and chai. I like trying different flavors, so feel free to send others you think I may like.

Comment: The card is so cute! Good for you for getting a cat!! I am a cat person, but since I married my husband(dog person) I fell in love with pups. I had two cats when we got married, they sadly passed away a few days ago. SO we have been adopting. We now have 1 Bloodhound teenager, 1 senior Bluetick Coon hounds and an older Bluetick coon hound. Always excitement, arguments, lost toys, abd esp the howling...LOL I love listening to the Bloodhound. Boy can she sing! hehe Thanks for the tea and stickers! Happy swapping. Thank you for being a mama to a cat in need of love! Good for you!
