About Me

I'm a postal worker, wife, and mother. I consider myself a fangirl of the actor Misha Collins. I also like to collect pop culture tee shirts. I'm a supporter of RandomActs.org. I enjoy meeting new people.

I absolutely love people who get excited about and are fans of things. Everyone should be a fan of something. Which is why I agreed to help transcribe interviews for my friend when she told me she was working on: Squee the Fangirl Documentary

It's just now starting to hit the festival circuit!

Oh so much to tell, but I'm not sure what lol. Talking about myself is not my strong suit.

I love letter writing and think it is a lost art.

I have a BA in history, although I have long forgotten more than I have ever learned.

I enjoy doing things just for the sake of making other people happy. One summer I mailed magazines to people internationally who were unable to find them in their own countries. Apparently the magazine was only published and available in the US. I had to share the love since the cover article was about Misha Collins who epitomizes acts of kindness. It seemed like the right thing to do.

I promise to rate. If you have sent something and I have not rated please let me know. I do my best to rate immediately. Occasionally life gets in the way and I may slip up and forget.

Favorite Television

I am a Supernatural fangirl. So much so that I have attended fan conventions for the show. I'm always on the lookout for fan art for Supernatural. I have a love for a great many characters on the show. Dean, Castiel, Sam, Crowley, Bobby, Chuck, Gabriel, and Benny are all loved. I like the strong female characters the show has had Ellen, Jo, Charlie (god I miss her), Jody Mills, Donna Hanscom, and even Meg version two and Rowena. Fan art of these folks will be cherished and greatly appreciated.

I am also fond of Doctor Who, although I have not kept up with the newer seasons. Christopher Eccleston as far as I'm concerned was an underappreciated actor. He's by far my favorite doctor of the new series.

Constantine was an excellent if short lived show. It was one of my absolute favorites and I was devastated when it was not renewed for more episodes.

It takes a lot for a television show to make me want to tune in every week. These are the only ones in years that made me want to devote the time.

I'm definitely a fan of the original Star Trek and Star Trek the Next Generation franchises but not fond of the others except the new movies. I liked all of the characters on the old trek and my favorites on Next Gen are Riker and Picard. I also love red shirt gallows humor. The enterprise and federation insignia are iconic and always enjoyed.

Favorite Crafts

Admittedly I am fickle when it comes to craft work. I like to dabble and try my hand at different things. I have cross stitched, scrapbooked ,sewn quilt tops, but nothing holds my interest for long. I swear I have the attention span of a humming bird. Lol

Currently I am trying my hand at ATCs. I really enjoy seeing other people's artwork so ATCs and sketches are always appreciated.

I have recently acquired a set of pigment pens and alcohol markers and am making sure to practice my art everyday. I mostly sign up for ATC swaps now so I can force myself to practice. The only problem is sometimes I fall in love with a piece and then it's like giving away one of my children.

Other recent activities include making and canning apple butter! yum

I have received my first 3 rating. It was justified as I was late and unable to read the required 10 books over the summer. I did however notify my partner of the situation over the summer with my husband's emergency surgery and subsequent hospitalization. It's regrettable, but reading was the last thing on my mind during such a stressful time.

Favorite Books

I'm fond of young adult fiction because I like the story. Sometimes I find in adult lit that the subject matter is too serious and lacks the wonder of a good story often found in young adult fare.

Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials is a classic in my eyes, as are C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia and Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games trilogy. I like stories that make you question and think, but also appreciate ones that address important issues with wit and dry humor, the works of Douglas Adams comes to mind. Hitchhiker's Guide is an unparalleled classic!

Likes and Dislikes

For swaps or other exchanges I enjoy the following things and other miscellaneous info:

Pin buttons

Magnets

Stationary/note cards

Favorite candy is gummy cola bottles (only cola flavor)

Favorite holiday, valentine's day (I just love the hearts)

I like washi tape

stickers

glycerin soaps

post cards

adult coloring pages

I am not Christian, but I do enjoy secular Christmas and gift giving.

Please don't send anything of a religious nature

Inspirational, spiritual, uplifting things without ties to organized religion are acceptable

Hi again! Youโ€™ll never guess what arrived todayโ€”the original postcard you mailed for the Give One, Get Six swap! Can you believe it? It took four months for this postcard to get to me here in Illinois. Thatโ€™s wild! So surprising it reached me, but, I really appreciate it so I wanted to let you know. =) Happy swapping!

bringitb on Nov 16, 2020:

Hi, I sent you a message the other week about the Give One, Get Six swapโ€”Iโ€™m going to be reaching out to the host next week. Iโ€™d rather not rate a 1, but nothing ever showed up. Could you please get back to me?

A postal worker in this group is the same thing as a hero. Thank you for all you do. I hope we get paired up for real someday. :)

Thank you so much for angeling the sock swap! So nice of you :)

bluesky on Mar 12, 2017:

All arrived well :) thank you. Again, sorry my bad, that I made you worry.

Artfreak16 on Mar 10, 2017:

People will complain about your swap "The Ides of Trump" but don't let it stop you! That man is very ignorant and is only thinking about himself and his rich buddies. Have a great day. And I hope your swap and idea works :)

Illegitimi non carborundum! Don't let the bastards get you down!
