About Me

Hi. I am Kristen and in my 40s from the Boston area. I've had penpals my whole life and am getting back into paper crafting after several years away.

Please don't send religious things.

Favorite Books

To Kill a Mockingbird, Maybe You Should Talk to Someone, The House of the Spirits, Rebecca, The Dutch House, Just Mercy. I love fiction and non fiction.

Favorite Television

I've recently watched Good Girls, Parenthood, Ozark, Breaking Bad, Schitts Creek, Modern Family, Criminal Minds, Love is Blind (don't judge), Better Call Saul, and Imposters.

All time fave is Parks and Recreation.

Favorite Crafts

Paper things. I like scraps and washi tape and glue and staples. I hope to start a collage/gluebook soon. I like to fiddle around with zines. Just started working on ATCs. I am so in awe of people's creativity with them.

Likes/Dislikes

I love washi tape, stickers, stationery, notecards, ephemera, postcards, etc.

Other loves: coffee, coffee shops, travel, friends, getting lost and finding my way, pandas, sunshine, daisies, libraries, meeting new people, connecting people, inspirational quotes, zines, the color purple, mermaid colors and themes, collaging, writing letters, plants, postage stamps, etc etc

Dislike: Goth stuff, sci-fi, paranormal stuff, the color orange, bananas, religious things, vintage things

Sending/Receiving

PLEASE message me if you haven't received a swap from me! I take a pic of all the mail going out for the day. I know the mail is slow lately, so I do ask for patience.

I RATE ALL SWAPS! And I hope you do as well. I rate them as I open the envelope or read the postcard. I give swappers the benefit of the doubt and will give about a month after mail date before I reach out about missing a swap.

Travel!!

Traveling is my favorite thing to do. I seriously want to go everywhere!

Avid traveler - both domestic and international. My bucket list is to visit all 7 continents and all 50 states. I have 2 continents left (Africa and Antarctica) and 7 states (Alaska, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, Mississippi, and Alabama).

Playing Cards

I just recently started getting into trading playing cards. I just completed my second frankendeck. so fun! i love all cards but especially the ones with animals or from specific cities or countries.

Postcards

I am okay with any postcard you wish to send as long as it fits the swap guidelines. If you want to send something I would especially like, then pandas, flowers, mountains, and waterfalls are my favorites. I am not really into the vintage postcards so will usually send those on when I receive them as extras in a swap.

Comment: Thank you for the card and note. I understand about some of the themes being a little hard to find. But the one you sent is fine. I also cannot believe how fast time is going by. It seems like just yesterday was Christmas and now it is already 3 weeks into January 2023.
