About Me

I appreciate the thoughtfulness when swap partners add extras, but I'm almost out of crafting storage space!

A few things about me:

  • 47yo, female, married w/ 4 kids (2 grownups, 2 teens)
  • she/her
  • LBGTQ ally ๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ
  • INFJ
  • atheist homeschooler--no denim jumpers here!
  • I cook several hours a day--all gluten-free and vegan (I am omni, but don't eat meat at home, everyone else is veg)
  • constantly reading, donโ€™t leave home without my kindle or a book
  • unrepentant potty mouth
  • I love coffee all day and white wine at night
  • NPR is my jam
  • Most of the day I listen to podcasts/news shows while working, driving, crafting, etc. If I'm not reading, I'm listening.
  • I like to write and receive long, newsy letters, though I warn that I'm not terribly efficient at time management so I might not write for a month then three times the following month. I'm full of surprises that way!
  • Mail art delights me. #NoPlainEnvelopes


  • books! Fiction, non-fiction, mysteries, thrillers, classics, poetry...I will read pretty much anything except fantasy/sci-fi. I like there to be at least some semblance of realism
  • pen-pal letters
  • sarcasm
  • smart, creative women, especially in the arts and politics
  • unique/unusual washi and stickers
  • Indigo Girls, my favorite band and almost the only music I listen to
  • podcasts (Wait, Wait..., the weeknight MSNBC shows, Mea Culpa, Deadline: White House, Lovett or Leave It, Daily Beans, The Moth, This American Life, The Jackie & Laurie Show, Under the Influence, and so many more!)
  • colors: olive/jade green is favorite, followed by purple, teal, turquoise, and yellow
  • bright prints/motifs, but also muted/vintage ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
  • letter sets
  • unusual paper--textured, handmade, from old ledgers, vintage library cards, telegrams, etc.
  • men in kilts
  • retro images, especially retro women
  • art nouveau
  • art deco
  • mandalas
  • botanical images, esp. daisies, sunflowers, bonsai, moss, mushrooms
  • butterflies, dragonflies, moths
  • unusual typography
  • book/magazine pages, especially vintage or non-English
  • kaleidoscopes & similar imagery
  • pens--current fave is Frixion 0.7 mm gel ink roller


  • hair
  • rodents
  • housework
  • stereotypical "girly" stuff
  • animal prints
  • camel toe
  • fantasy/sci-fi
  • traditional holiday stuff; it just seems so artificial, especially xmas
  • anything containing lavender (I'm allergic). Love the color, not the plant
  • sweets/candy
  • ribbon/fabric
  • religious or faith-based ANYTHING
  • โ€œcuteโ€ or kawaii
  • kiddie/juvenile stuff

Favorite Postcard Themes:

  • out-of-the-ordinary
  • feminist
  • books/bookstores/authors
  • artists/art
  • food/drink, esp. coffee or wine
  • humorous
  • eccentric/odd
  • vintage
  • non-touristy

Comment: Thank you for this Deb - Deb swap! How sweet of you to enclose those very cool face images - I will definitely enjoy incorporating them into my art journal pages! Funny, in my family we also have close birthdays - my husband and I are 6 days apart, same year, and our sons are 8 days apart, different years obviously:) If you want to hear my son's music, he is Lev on Spotify; this week he released an EP called A Year Underwater. (great name for a song this year, right?!) More streams = more exposure so thanks!!!
Response: I'll check it out!
Comment: Thanks for the swap! Hope all is well! Happy swapping!
Response: I hope you're doing well! My twins are 27 now but the memory of 6 months of bedrest (before internet!) is enough to give me nightmares. Hope your experience isn't quite as bad.

riftvegan rated for TGIF Weekend Notecard #254 on Jul 17, 2021
Comment: Oh, your breakfast on the porch with a Bloody Mary sounds delightful. And tea and kindle time in the afternoon sounds even better. :) Also, I love the design on the card... I've been experimenting in my art journal and I'm going to try to do something similar, maybe with a dark magenta background. Thanks for a great swap!!
Response: Ha, now I wish I could remember what the notecard looked like!
