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 recently started a vegetable garden and I'm having so much fun with it! It's such a relaxing hobby - wish I started years ago!

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.****

LIKES:

Flower or veggie seeds

Stationery (letter sets, larger notecards)

Air freshener for car

Stickers (no planner, childish, or reward please)

Return address labels with my info

Unused USPS stamps

Non-touristy postcards

Colorful pens (no black ink)

Tea (no loose tea please)

Perfume samples

DISLIKES:

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)

Comment: I agree about celebrity narrators! I love Brendan Fraser, but not his narration of the second Inkheart book. I'll have to check out Imogen Church and Ruth Ware. Thank you so much for the lovely extras! They're exactly my aesthetic and will make my journal very happy!

Comment: Thank you for sharing your doggie car-trip story. Jedi hates riding in the car, probably causes we usually only take him to the vet or the groomer. Thank you also for the PDTs!
