I love fountain pens, ink, paper, and planners. I spend a lot of time writing in my journal (I'm addicted to Chic Sparrow leather journal covers) and writing letters.
I'm also very into my backyard veggie garden, and am learning to quilt. I'm in two book clubs, one with an old group of local friends, and a two person book club by letters with a close pen pal.
I have two teen boys, ages 15 and 17.
Oh, and I'm learning German!
Too many passions, too little time!
Letter writing, mail art, making postcards. Journaling. Planning (is that considered a craft?). Watercolor and gouache - I'm not that great but I dabble. Quilting- I'm taking an online class. The plan is to make quilts for both the kids when they graduate from high school.
Memoirs of a Geisha, All the Light We Cannot See, The Night Circus, Bee Season, Room, The Other Boleyn Girl, The Age of Miracles, The Kite Runner, The Interestings, The Lightkeepers, Anthill by Edward O Wilson, A Fine Balance. If it's a good book club book, chances are I love it.
Cadbury Mini Eggs, Coke Zero, The Bachelor, The Sims
Happier with Gretchen Rubin, By The Book, The Dream, The Moth. My newest favorite is The Stationery Cafe, especially the "Happy Hour" episodes where they talk about all the pens, inks and stationery items they just bought or want to buy. So enabling, but I can't get enough of it.
I also love watching fountain pen and stationery Youtube channels, including Adventure Denali, Girl and Quill, Sarah Martinez, Pens and Tea,and Mystery Arts and Crafts
I'm new to swap-bot, but things I like the idea of swapping include: fountain pen ink samples, fountain pen friendly paper samples,vintage US stamps, veggie seeds, tea, mail-art and handmade postcards, Lou Paper postcards, any postcards really, bookmarks,washi tape samples, stickers. My favorite color is purple.
