About Me

Update April 4, 2021

Notice I will be out of town April 21 to May 4. Someone will be at my house to be sure the mail gets inside safely. I do have Informed Delivery service from the USPS, so if you write your user name and swap name under your return address, I will see it in my email and I can rate you as received on the day it arrives. Otherwise, I will be rating when I return home, and I apologize in advance for the delay.

Hi Friends! I'm feeling like what I appreciate most of all these days is a handwritten note. We are all just people who have hopes and dreams and hard times, sometimes. I want to remember that, I want to spread that feeling of connection around. At the end of the day, we all have so much more in common than we realize.

So, you can sub in a note for a trade item anytime for me, I won't rate you down for it. I really don't need any more stuff :-) Tell me something about yourself, your day, pets, kids, a joke you heard, your favorite internet rabbit hole, habits you are trying to make or break, anything you want to say.

Wanna play a game? I'm going to put up a couple of questions to answer if you are writing to me in a swap. Or not, your choice :-)

APRIL 2021 questions

1 What is food you have never eaten but would like to try?

2 If you had 3 days to do anything you wanted, what would you do?

3 Have you ever snooped and found something you wished you hadn't?

I live in Oregon - I've been here 24 years already. It's getting very crowded in Portland Metro and I'm starting to think about moving somewhere else. Suggestions welcome! I grew up in the Chicago area (suburban and ex-urban) - it's a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there now :-)

I've recently left my job of 15 years - I'm calling it a "sanity sabbatical" not retirement, lol. I have not figured out what to do with myself just yet.

Favorite Television

We don't have broadcast or cable TV, but Netflix keeps us well entertained. Right now we are watching:




The OA


I used to love a show called The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd (starring Blaire Brown) - anyone remember that show? It was never released on VHS/DVD as far as I know - something about the music rights. I'd be so curious to see it again, see if it holds up for me.

Favorite Movies

We watch a wide variety of movies. It's hard to call favorites. Anything from the subscription service Film Movement is usually always good. They are foreign films - we get them at the library. I really enjoy foreign films, because I never know what to expect. It's fun to see different cultures, and wonder at the cultural references that we are missing in the subtitles.

Favorite Crafts

I am an on again/off again art journaler - I don't make as much time for it as I would like. I'm a huge fan of Lisa Sonora - 30 Day Journal Project, among other things.

I also knit and cross-stitch, but haven't done them in a while. Since starting on Swap-bot, I've rekindled my love of Zentangle :-) I've enjoyed Soul Collage in the past, and have done mini Soul Collage cards.

I'm just having so much fun being artsy again!

About Me

I'm learning Tarot - how fun! Also been attending workshops with the Oregon Friends of Jung and finding it fascinating. Analyzing my dreams has been an adventure and never boring.

Random Goodies

You don't need to send me anything just to include something. I have enough stuff, and really just want to get to know people. If you want, use your stuff to decorate what you are sending me :-)

If this happens to be a swap where you are required to include something, I especially appreciate:

things that are decorated with colored pens, washi, stickers, you name it.


blank postcards

unused postage stamps

tea bags - I like everything except plain black and chamomile

any fun coffee thing

ATCs - I'm starting to make these, so I like to see what other people do.


Mail Tags (ask me a question and I will reply, or vice versa)

And what I appreciate most of all is a handwritten note. You can sub in a note for a trade item anytime for me, I won't rate you down for it. Tell me something about yourself, your day, pets, kids, a joke you heard, your favorite internet rabbit hole, habits you are trying to make or break, anything you want to say.

Happy Mail, yay!

Comment: Thank you for the lovely goodies!
Comment: I got the cards and will send them along in the next round!
Comment: Thank you for the card! When I wrote the profile, I would get my dog Emma a new outfit every Halloween and Christmas. She passed away, and I'm a little more lenient with my Jimmy. He has a superhero cape for trick or treating, a hot dog outfit for Halloween movies (I've always wanted a dog who can pull this off, and he's perfect for a hot dog!), and a coat for the winter. :-) I hope you're doing well and staying safe!

MuggleMom rated for LLU: Nat'l Poetry Month PC on Apr 17, 2021
Comment: Thank you for introducing me to a wonderful poem. I did google it to see more and found a great YT video of David Whyte reading it and his voice is haunting and soothing!! xxMuggleMom
Response: Truth. I actually first encountered David Whyte through one of his audio books, and I kept it in my car for rush hour traffic because the sound of his voice was so soothing. Glad you enjoyed it 😊

Comment: Loved, Loved and Loved this letter! Thank you so much for writing to me! Also, Thank you so much for the little goodies they are so cute.
Comment: All I can say is WOW. Thank you so much for everything. I would say my favorite is the wasp dressed in a dress and the pony from Iceland. You did so good sending a very nice variety. Again, thank you so very much. I hope your weekend on the Olympic Peninsula went well.

Hi Sherri! I really enjoyed reading your profile. I’d love to send a note and mail tag to you. The type of food I’d love to try that I never have is Pho Noodles. There is a restaurant by my house that I’ve always wanted the visit. Have you ever had them? Have a great day!!

Hello from Arkansas. I would answer your profile questions as well, but my answers would be boring, so instead I'll tell you a habit I'm trying to make--I want to cook more! Today I made tacos. I hope you have a good day. :)

CapitanSmirk on Apr 5, 2021:

Good morning!!

Love your profile! I’ll answer your April questions too!

  1. I’ve always wanted to try Ramen or Pho from an actual restaurant. I’ve had the microwave kinds but I know they aren’t even close to the same!

  2. I would keep working on cleaning up my house and decluttering. I would also sleep in every day! I’m not a morning person but my alarm goes off at 5:30am every day!

  3. There have been times I snooped as a child and found Christmas gifts but I can’t think of any other time I snooped around!

Hi Sherri! Greetings from St. Louis! Happy spring! I’ll answer your April 2021 questions! :)

  1. I’d like to try some local foraged foods, especially paw paws! I’ve heard them compared to a “tropical custard” flavor. I’ve planted 2 tiny trees in my yard, but they likely won’t bare fruit for a couple/few more years.

  2. The practical side of me says 3 days to get my house all clean and orderly!

  3. This isn’t really snooping, but I’ve found quite surprising things about ancestors in old newspapers! (For example, I have a great, great grandmother who was arrested for selling liquor during the prohibition!)

Hope you are well. Have a great day!

Good Morning from Odessa, Texas! I hope you have a really great day and enjoy the sunshine! I noticed that you like cross-stitching, that is my favorite as well!

In case no one told you today:

You are beautiful.

You are loved.

You are needed.

You are alive for a reason.

You are stronger than you think.

Love Bonnie 💗
