About Me

I collect postcards. My favorite kinds are ones that are weird or different.

I am allergic to beeswax so please do not send me anything that has beeswax in it . Another allergy is Bath and Body Works. I can't use any of their products. I have very sensitive skin :(

I LOVE tupperware. Any tupperware you send, I will love. Keychains included!

I collect Snow White stuff. I also like Alice in Wonderland a lot. Disney or otherwise for Alice stuff.

I used to be a vegetarian for 5 years but I eat meat again. I still enjoy more veggies and fruits though.

We have a little black pug named Roger!

I am really into photography and I love stuff that is out of the ordinary.

Vintage, retro, and recycled are all up my alley

My favorite colors are pink, black, red and aqua.

I love the Incredible Hulk!

The 50's are my favorite! I love the pin-up girls, hairstyles, and the fashion. Anchors, old-school bluebirds, nautical stars, cherries and sailor jerry-type stuff.

Some of my postcards get lost in mail (I learned that the hard way from Postcrossing) so if you haven't gotten one from me, please PM me and give me another chance to send one out again before you rate me!

My favorite shows are Mad Men, The Middle, The Girls Next Door, Entourage, Mercy, The Big Bang Theory and Cougar Town.

Favorite Crafts

I love making collages. I also started scrapbooking too. I was always one to hang onto everything, so why not put it in a book and save it?

Speaking of which, I love notebooks and making lists. To do lists, lists of favorite songs, books. anything. I have tons of notebooks (big, little, you name it!) I love stuff made from recycled materials. Like purses from juice boxes, shoelaces made from soda bottles. Stuff like that. Homemade is great too!

Skunks are my favorite animal. Elephants are awesome too! Trunks up for good luck!

Favorite Music

I can honestly say that I enjoy all types of music. I would listen to anything and I like seeing what different people are into. I listened to a lot of punk rock. emo and hardcore in college. Now I listen mostly to the Top 40 and easy listening stuff. Eighties music is fun. Again, I would listen to anything really and I love when a song has a good story behind it.

Favorite Books

Chuck Palahniuk is one of my favorite authors. I like Wally Lamb and Sarah Dessen a lot too. Another one of my favorite authors is Curtis Sittenfeld. I don't think I have one favorite book. I just finished reading the Sookie Stackhouse books.

I enjoy a lot of children's authors too. I love Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass By: Lewis Carroll. Beverly Cleary and Shel Silverstein are more of my favorites. I love reading most young adult fiction.

Favorite Movies

I am a movie lover! My favorite films are independent ones and documentaries but I like a lot of others too. Here are some of my favorites: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, The King of Kong :A Fistful of Quarters, Josie and the Pussycats, Always a Bridemaid, Housebunny, Sydney White, Swimming with Sharks, 500 Days of Summer, Requiem for a Dream, The Notebook, Waiting for Guffman, Labyrinth, Kids, American Beauty, The Lovely Bones, The United States of Leland,

and many more...

Favorite Stuff

I like dark chocolate the best and gummy stuff. I love Wonka candies!! I DON'T like Smarties, Sprees or anything sour. I don't care for coconut either. I like hard candy and peppermints. Don't send TOO much candy because I like to eat healthy and have to eat it in moderation :)

I love Johnson and Johnson's lotion! I also love Lush products. Please keep the beeswax allergy in mind though :) I have to stick with a lot of natural stuff because of my allergies.

I love Barbie stuff!

I also like Domo stuff (the little brown monster-type thing). He's cute.

I love kits! If you teach me a new craft or make a zine or just teach me something that you love to do, I would love it in a kit form!

Homemade zines!


Craft books and cookbooks.

Whimsy Jars

Stickers (I love scratch and sniff ones)



Healthy Snacks! We don't live near a Trader Joe's or Whole Foods so I love trying new things!

Recipes on recipe cards

Peppermint scented or flavored things



Hello Kitty

Sesame Street

Calvin and Hobbes


Deco Tape

Recycled things

Sharpies and other markers

Cool pens

Lavender-scented things!

Target, Boscov's, Aerie and Big Lots Gift Cards

True Blood

Animals: Hedgehogs, beavers, manatees, skunks and elephants (as stated above), bees, bear cubs, ducks.

Dark colored nail polish (OPI is my favorite because of the cute names)

Letter sets or stationary

I would LOVE LOVE LOVE an Amigurumi animal! I can't make one but I think they are soo cute! If there is any way I could get one, I would be so happy!


I am NOT a fan of the following things: Cherubs or angels, Anything overly religious, Paula Dean, anything fruit-punch or watermelon flavored, Cheesecake, Caramel, white chocolate, Precious Moments, and Miley Cyrus. Also, I do not have children, so please do not send me things that are made specifically for them. I dislike Americana themed items, little pieces of scrap paper thrown into envelopes and lipgloss in pots ( I DO like tubes!) Please don't just throw anything into an envelope, call it an extra and expect a heart. I give hearts based on the quality of the swap, not just based on extras. I like extras but only when it's something you think I would genuinely like. Same goes for swaps I send to you! :)

Comment: I am laughing at myself today. It occured to me that after meditating for 30 years and doing yoga for nearly as long, I might be better able to focus. I did think of you with the contents. The book, candle journal and CD are all perfect for reducing stress. I haven't sent your package yet, so let me know if you need anything back:) I have been needing encouragement so your package arrived just in time. Thank you.
Response: You're welcome! :)

I just came across a Christmas postcard of you and Roger that you sent me a couple of years ago. It still makes me smile. :)

Hi to you- in the Advent swap in Domesticated, the fuzzball toy is an amigurumi :-) Maybe a bit different from your idea of one, but they come in all shapes and sizes, as do we all!

spinweaver on Dec 5, 2010:

Hello- won't you please join us in the Domesticated group forum, on the Advent topic? We're having fun opening the gifts and sharing what we got. We miss you!
