It’s Me, hi

🌵 Hello! My name is Cara (car-uhhh). I am 34. I’m growing old with my fiancé of 12 years (yikes, right?) and we have an 11 year old daughter together. We also have 2 gray/white tabby cats who are brother and sister and they look identical named Taylor and Tyler. I never thought I’d be a cat person until we adopted them and I want more!! Okay, UPDATE 12/1/23: the Universal Cat Distribution System has gifted me a spunky and wild Tortico kitten! Her name is Ms. Bojangles because she makes the best biscuits ever. The twins have finally accepted her as their own and it melts my heart. Ironically, she has kind of taken over as the ‘ring leader’ and she constantly lets them know who’s actually in charge here haha.

We are from a small town in South Carolina where everyone knows everybody. Lately, I’ve been enjoying kayaking down the river to find new trails to walk to find some artifacts! If you ever want to trade, message me! We love to visit the beach in the low-country (Beaufort) as much as possible. When there, you can find me fishing, on the golfcart, or looking for treasures on the beach. There is sooooo much Native American artifacts like pottery and points that I collect. Along with seaglass!

I am a SAHM who used to work as a surgical tech for the ortho team until Covid hit. Although it was so rewarding, I am glad to put that in my past because it is so mentally and physically exhausting. I never had time to do what I love..craft!! I started my Etsy shop around that time and that has kept me super busy. I also coach my daughter’s fast pitch softball team so if I’m not home working, I’m on the field. Postcards/snail mail makes me happy!

Things I love

❤️ Anything food related, food pictures, recipes

❤️ Beach themed, seaglass, beach scenery, treasure, lighthouses, volcanoes, fishing.

❤️ All things animals. Seriously. The babies are my favorite! Got any favorites?

❤️ JOKES. DAD JOKES. PUNS. ONE LINERS. RIDDLES

❤️ Favorite colors: neon anything, rose gold, holographic, pink, pastels, tie-dye

❤️ Coffee. Enough said

❤️ I collect : glitter, washi tape, magnets from places, stickers (waterproof), state quarters, postcards, marbles, cats

❤️ I LOVE HANDMADE ITEMS!! I’ve been super into learning watercolor lately. The more creative, the better. I love seeing what people can make.

❤️ Fall vibes, retro vibes, anything that has a Groovy look to it.

❤️ I am the queen of being cozy lol. I love anything soft, fleece, if it keeps me warm then yes. My favorite thing to do is stay home and cuddle on the couch with a blanket!

❤️ Taylor Swift (Where my Swifties at??)

❤️ SHARKS!! Shark teeth, fish, dolphins, sea turtles

❤️ Weird/random holidays

❤️ Stationary of any kind. I love a good memo pad. I’ve also been on the hunt for some good quality envelopes.

❤️ Arrowheads

❤️ ATC!! I have loved receiving these..they’re so tiny but I love seeing the creativity.

❤️ Hand lettering

❤️ I have a slight obsession with washi tape! I love the designs with the silver holographic accents! I’m starting to run out of ideas for storage!

Postcards

I am currently growing my collection and there is no true organization to it and it’s getting out of hand (hah just kidding) but I do love seeing so many coming from all over the world!

💌 Scenery. Buildings. Landscape. Architecture. State parks. Beaches. Mountains. Skylines. Castles

💌 Is your town or state known for something? Let me know!

💌 ‘World’s Largest ____’ themed cards.

💌 Watercolor. Hand painted.

💌 Food pics. State foods. Recipe cards

💌 Bright colors

💌 Vintage anything. My favorites are of hotels or old restaurants

💌 Disney!

💌 Holiday themes..Halloween and Christmas are my favorite.

💌 Weird and ridiculous holidays are also welcomed!

💌 Cryptids and mythical creatures

💌 Dinos

💌 Space

💌 Have you noticed some of the same images on different postcards?? I’ve been on the lookout for some with the same shaped cloud. Super vague, I know. Look it up and it will make more sense!

These are just IDEAS!! I know how it is to feel ‘stuck’ on sending someone something so these are just mere suggestions. I will always be grateful for everything and will cherish what I receive. I love seeing people sending what their heart drives them to. Please feel free to message me if you need to!

No thank you..

I'm truly an easy going person and I tend to believe I do not have a long dislike list, but...

-I am not a tea drinker..just coffee and hot chocolate!

-I am deathly allergic to pine nuts.

-This month (dec 2023) marks TEN MONTHS sober from alcohol. This year has shown me so much grace and determination within myself and every day is still a struggle and that’s ok. This is what got me into snail mail..I needed a healthy outlet! With that being said, some things and images still trigger me like drink recipes and images. I know it’s my own personal battle, but just keep that in mind ❤️

Let me add that that I am always so dang happy to receive anything that someone put just the tiniest effort into because that truly is special! So I would love anything you send and if I can’t use it personally, I will gift it to someone who can.

Comment: thank you for the neurographic postcard. it is beautiful. i like the watercolour colours and all the swirling lines you created. the weather on the day i received your postcard was precisely the same as the weather you described the day you sent the card, sunny 70°/54°f (21°/12°c) and everything was green and beautiful - what a nice coincidence! love from kiara 🫶🏽
