About Me

alt text !

Hello!

Thanks for checking out my profile. My name is Emily and I'm still pretty new here, but have been happily busy with swaps, crafting/creating, and making new penpals every day since joining! I always send forth my best work, and if you do the same and are interested in private swaps, please let me know!

Bio Stuff

I'm a busy single mom of two teenagers. Kinda nerdy- love to read and learn, love classical music and going to the symphony. I listen to NPR, but no other radio or TV. I like many video games, especially RPGs that I can sink hours into. Love Tolkien and other fantasy writers. I don't use social media/facebook. I put pics of my mail on IG, but don't really "socialize" on it. I don't create or partake in drama of any sort. I do not get offended or angered much at all. I try to live mindfully and follow the Middle Way. I practice what I call "moderate minimalism", except when it comes to office and craft supplies LOL. If I could retire today, I would! I'd garden and read, and write, and draw, and sew, and paint, and just watch the clouds go by! But alas, I am only in my 40s and have plenty of workdays yet.... booo.

Sending and Rating

I always send, send on time, send my best work and rate when swaps are received. I would love the same from all of you! However, I know this is a site for having fun and being creative, so I'm not gonna stress over a few days. Just keep in touch, that's always best.

Postage

I have a postal scale and weigh my own envies. I have been an eBay seller since 1999 (yikes) and stay very familiar with USPS rates and regulations. With that said, if you receive postage due, I want to hear about it, not only to send you a surprise something, but to learn from my errors.Thank you!

Wishlist/Likes

I'm really easy to please as I have not been doing this long enough to have a lot of specific needs. However, here are a list of things I am fond of:

  • Non-touristy postcards. They just aren't my favorite.

  • This is super boring, I know but- unused US stamps. I love using vintage stamps, or even just older forever stamps and always need more!

  • Nice stickers, especially holiday! I have like no holiday stickers and they are coming up soon!!

  • Pretty, interesting papers for collage. Magazine clippings, vintage book pages. For my junk/art whatever-you-wanna-call-it journal!

  • Rain, rainy days, rain imagery, stormy weather, clouds...

  • Animals, especially cats, owls, otters, llamas, bugs, bats, sheep, birds, ok basically all animals

  • Flowers, anything floral. Love daises, poppies, sunflowers

  • Plants and succulents- love imagery of potted plants and cacti. Love shamrocks/ four-leaf clovers

  • Butterflies, birds, dragonflies, anything that flies!

  • Celestial themed- sun, moon, stars, planets too!

  • Fantasy things- Dragons, fairies, gnomes, mermaids

  • Books, book related- pictures of books, bookmarks

  • Any Buddhist or Hindu images, ie Buddha, Shiva, Vishnu etc

  • Colors I'm not picky about at all! Love all color - you choose!

Dislikes

I don't really have any dislikes, but I do my very best to send "Happy" mail to people, and hope to receive the same! Like so many swaps say, send something you would like to receive!

Comment: Supersweet PC & postage, too! Wow, if you know that many Emily's you must be about a generation younger than me I'm guessing! I know Emily and all it's similar names became really popular a bit back. I did not meet anoyemily until I was 11 years old! And I lived in a pretty big suburb of Denver. I've met many Emily's since, though.

Comment: What an adorable postcard, including the front and all the cute stamps and things on the back! I would love to be penpals, so I'll write you a letter, though it might be one or two weeks as it's a bit crazy here right now. I'm putting your PC in penpal pile, though, so you'll hear from me soon.

Comment: Thank you for sending the postcard. I enjoy fall too. My maple trees haven't completely turned yet. But when they do, it is gorgeous. My favorite tree by far.

Comment: Thank you so much for the cute postcard and the awesome condor stamp! My husband and I were strangely just talking about the condors today. They released some into the wild not far from where we live and he has seen some when on a few of his search and rescue locations.
