About Me

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!

Favorite Crafts

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.

Favorite Books

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.

Guilty Pleasures

Cadbury Mini Eggs, Coke Zero, The Bachelor, The Sims

Favorite Podcasts

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

Things I Might Want to Swap

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.

Response: yes! If we have to live somewhere tiny for a year might as well get pampered! :)

Comment: Thank you for the lovely inky note. I am in love with Colorverse Gravity Wave. Such amazing shading. It looks great on my favourite Tomoe paper. Such an interesting green. Thanks for the paper samples. Will definitely use them.

Comment: Thank you. I will check out The Interestings, it sounds good. I like the herb stationary. Thank you for the cute book marks.
Response: You're very welcome! :)
Comment: thank you so much for your fun postcard! Funny, we were looking at these on etsy, but they don't have ones made for Canada! :) I love that you're chatty and a long letter writer too! Spring is beautiful in BC but allergyish. How about in MA? Happy Swapping! <3
Response: So glad it reached you safely! Yes- ditto here. Very pretty, but lots of pollen! Happy (hopefully not too sneezy) spring!
