About Me

**September 2023 update- I am slowly getting back into swaps.***

Currently looking for pen pals from anywhere. I would like is for us to send 1 or 2 letters by snail mail a month ~~~Please note all my swaps come from a pet friendly and smoke free 🏡 ~~~ **Ratings: I have 3 3’s. None of which are recent. I received one of them because I sent new stuff for a magpie art journal swap so I didn’t meet the requirements. The other 2 I had no control over because I sent my items and then our postal system went on strike and they were a week late. I communicated with both individuals but was given that rating. **

I NEVER FLAKE ON MY SWAPS. Please contact me if there is an issue

I work full-time and I am a writer and also a student. I have several books published. They are all available on Amazon and in a select few fine book stores. I also like to travel but haven't done much in the last couple of years. I have hiked the El Camino trail and I have hiked on Everest!

Favorite Books

📚 Authors I like... 📚 Stephen King 📚 L.M. Montgomery 📚 Patricia Cornwell 📚 Sylvia Plath 📚 Charles Dickens 📚 J.K. Rowling

I am sure there are others I can't think of at this moment.

Favorite Movies

Some of my fav 🍿 🎥 are: 🍿 Stand by Me Movie 🍿 Fried Green Tomatoes 🍿 A Christmas Carol 🍿 The Colour Purple 🍿 Gremlins 🍿 Anne of Green Gables 🍿 Goonies 🍿 One Magic Christmas 🍿 Scrooged (with Bill Murray) 🍿 Stand by Me 🍿 It (both versions)

Favorite Television

I like mostly 📺 crime shows such as Dateline, Law & Order and Criminal Minds. I watch TV while I crochet or write. I don't usually sit down and watch a specific show.

Favorite Crafts

I don't do a lot of crafts anymore. I used to do a lot of crocheting and cross-stitching but I am more focused on my health and my writing lately.

A Few Likes

📓 Strawberry Shortcake 📓 Anything with anchors 📓 Harry Potter (Harry, Hagrid, Dobby) 📓 Vintage Looking items and items with lace 📓 Maps

Beverages - peppermint tea, hot chocolate and apple cider :)

And snail mail, of course I love snail mail!!!


💥 I’m not a fan of reward or emoji stickers...

💥 I don't have any allergies

💥 Not a fan of glitter/sparkles

Newbie Profile Fav X-mas Toy Hi Catina! It sounds like we have quite a few interests in common! Mixed media art, collecting Harry Potter, Criminal/Mystery television and books, stickers we don't like...lol! My most memorable Christmas Gift? The original Barbie Doll! So many years ago! I find it hard to believe that I am that old! 😊 I hope you have a wonderful Christmas! Julie jewelss2

Newbie Friendly - Profile Hello #16

Hi hi Catina! I hope you have a lovely day! I also like(d) Care Bears, I mostly have all of my aunts care bears from when she was a kid - I also just found a care bear journal of mine that I used as a kid, it has some horrible drawings of all my pets.

Anyway,may you have a lovely Christmas!

x Jess
