My name is Erica, I'm thirtysomething, and I live in New Jersey (in the USA). I love to read books, especially historical fiction. I'm an avid pen paler and mail artist. I love to make mail and art journal pages. I mostly use collage, but also rubber stamps and acrylic paint. I'm a "mail box junkie" and I'm not ashamed! I also love to crochet.
Please, if you do not receive a swap from me, message me and I will re-send or otherwise remedy the situation.

My absolute favorite craft is crocheting! I love to crochet baby hats for charity. I also crochet for family and friends, and I have an Etsy shop where I sometimes sell things I crochet.
I just LOVE to read! My favorite genres are history, memoirs, cultural studies, historical fiction, short stories, poetry, and more. I am "coracalliope" on Goodreads. Please add me there!
Because I love to crochet, I need yarn!

I have pets! And they love to get mail. My babies are:
-Picasso Giovanna (greenwing macaw). Picasso lives at my dad's house. Luckily, his house is not far! It's a four mile drive away. Picasso is "bonded" with me and loves when I visit her. She enjoys parrot toys, dried fruit, nuts of all kinds (especially pine nuts! Her favorite), and parrot treats.
-Callie (muted calico cat). Callie is an adopted feline princess. My mom and I adopted her on January 31, 2012. I'm her Momma and my mom is her Mimi. Callie is a loving, happy cat who relaxes and comforts me and my mom. She likes cat nip, cat toys, and cat treats.
-Our other parrots: My dad and I have 16 hyacinth macaws! Their names are: Valentino, Savannah, Giovanni, Sabrina, Angelina, Nico, Hope (RIP), Freedom, Caterina, Bailee, Reagan, Charlie, LB, and Suzie Q. I'll update when we name the new chicks.
