About Me

*** I don't ever flake. If something hasn't arrived, I will gladly resend. Just please send me a message and let me know before rating. Thanks! ***

I'm happily married and mom of adult children. I'm originally from Hawaii and now live in Arizona. Arizona has hot weather, so please don't mail me anything that can melt.

The books I enjoy most are in the suspense/thriller genre. Authors - Ruth Ware, Karin Slaughter, Gillian Flynn, Mary Kubica, Jo Nesbo, etc. (I hate romance novels.)

I buy my postage stamps from a stamp dealer, so I try to put interesting stamps on whatever I mail out (when my stash is full).

I love shopping at thrift stores. I usually look for stationery. I have a serious paper addiction and always buy paper/stationery when I see it. I guess it goes with my love of pen palling. I have several pen pals all over the world.

I enjoy listening to audiobooks, true crime podcasts, cooking (stove top, crockpot, pressure cooker), farmers markets, and I'm addicted to coffee & tea. I am a huge animal lover and have 2 dogs in our family plus we take care of a feral family of cats outdoors. I can't imagine our home without any pets.

My husband and I try to travel as much as possible. I love experiencing new cultures and meeting new people.

****For postcard swaps, I'd love it if you sent them blank in an envelope if possible. I won't rate down if the swap calls for them to be sent written/naked.****


Stickles glitter glue (any color)

Stationery (letter sets, larger notecards)

Air freshener for car

Stickers (no reward please)

Return address labels with my info

Unused USPS stamps

Non-touristy postcards

Pretty or cute paper napkins for mail art

Clear silicone stamps (gently used ok)

Washi tape samples

Colorful pens (no black ink)

Tea (no loose tea please)

Perfume samples

Reusable grocery bags


I don't like things that cause clutter in the house (knick knacks, ornaments, etc.)

Incoming mail that smells of smoke (sorry, but I throw everything out including the extras)
