Bio Stuff

Hello!

Thanks for checking out my profile. My name is Emily and I'm a busy single mom of two teenagers. Kinda nerdy- love to read and learn, love classical music and going to the symphony.Don't really care for TV, but I am going to watch the end of Game of Thrones! I like many video games, especially RPGs that I can sink hours into. Love Tolkien, Sanderson, and other fantasy writers. 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 and just love receiving anything basically! However, here are a list of things I am fond of:

  • Postcards- I like animals, illustrations or nature

  • 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, washi, planner stickers

  • Planner goodies- I use a personal size Filofax and am kinda obsessed with it.

  • Pretty, interesting papers, 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, whales, octopi, geese, birds, ok basically all animals

  • Botanical/floral- love imagery of potted plants and cacti.

  • Butterflies, birds, dragonflies, anything that flies!

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

  • Fantasy things- Dragons, fairies, gnomes, mermaids

  • Tea I like black, esp Earl Grey and Chai, but will try anything if you have one you really like

  • Books, book related- pictures of books, bookmarks

  • Anything weird, odd, strange- I'm ok with! If you have a PC you haven't sent for that reason, I'll be happy to give it a home:)

  • Love my postcards nakey, stamped and decorated

  • I do Project Life scrapbooking, so any journaling cards are always welcome

  • 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: Marked as mailed from US on Oct 1 to me in US. As of Nov 5, I have nothing - sent PM on Oct 22 but no response. The PM has not been read. Swapper has not been on since Oct 14. Rating a 1 for now. Will change my rating if I get something. Jan 2: Emily reached out to me and resent the swap. I have received it and a lovely letter from her. THANKS! Wishing you all the best in 2019!
Response: I'm so glad you received the replacement and enjoyed the letter:) Thank you for the rating!!

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.
