I'm in my 60's. I love receiving snail mail. Some of my favorites are ATC's, PC's, cards, and zentangle!
I live in Minnesota and I dislike winter (the cold, snow and sleet) so swapping helps me fill the void of the short winter days and long nights. Summers are too short, and full of bugs. lol The humidity gets to me and thankfully not too many days have high humidity.
I am an baby eclectic witch. Just learning all about witchcraft. Very interesting and not at all what main stream society thinks it is all about. I finally feel like I fit in somewhere.
When I was a kid, my sister and I would go roller skating on Friday nights while our parents would go grocery shopping, but I wouldn't go unless I could "see" myself skating around the rink. Now I know it was a form of witchcraft. I still do that on occasion with other things in my life.
I don't have any food allergies that I am aware of, which is great! I like chocolate and have discovered I have a sensitivity to it. This is not an allergy. I also like to have my daily cup of coffee and a relaxing cup of herbal tea is always nice. Iced tea is wonderful, too.
Favorite Movie: Hamilton. Excellent movie!
I love to listen to podcasts. Mostly true crime. I listen to a variety of podcasters including Northern Frights, Small Town Murder, Criminal, Unsolved Murders|True Crime Stories, Unresolved, just to name a few. Some are serious and some are done lightheartedly. All are good, and all do not disrespect anyone who has died.
Swapping with Me: I will try to send out my items as soon as partners are selected, but if something doesn't make it to you, please let me know. Also, I sometimes put things in the mailbox at night and mark the swap sent, so it won't be Post Marked until the next day. So keep that in mind.
BEFORE rating. I want to make sure that you get the items! I want HAPPY partners. I keep a close watch on my swaps, and I usually will contact my partner before she/he contacts me concerning any possible mail mix-ups/hiccups. I will gladly re-send the swap to you. I would rather you receive two items than none at all!
PLEASE RATE UPON RECEIPT OF A SWAP....if all requirements of the swap are met, you must rate a 5. That is required of ALL swaps.
If you're going to be late in sending out a swap, I'm very understanding, so let me know. Communicate with me and we'll work something out.
If there is postage due on a swap I sent you, please let me know, and I will reimburse you.
POSTCARDS: I have collected quite a few to try to match up what possible future partners are interested in. What I would like sent to me are PC's such as something you have no use for. However, I am not interested in Ad/Free/Dirty (soiled) PC's. The PC's could be cartoon, funny, strange, "What the Heck?"-type, something you just don't know what to do with.

I like to Crochet.
