About Me

I love crafting, art, camping, cooking, hiking, coffee and books! The types of crafts I enjoy are counted cross-stitch, anything Cricut related, rock painting, knitting, and I am desperately trying to learn how to sew, although I don't make enough time for it. My goals for the winter are to actual try and sew every weekend and to re-learn the ukulele which I played in a choir as a kid (I grew up partially in Hawaii).

For cooking, I currently love my air fryer, my cast iron skillet and I love to try new things - especially with flavored vinegars and olive oils. I am less great at baking.

I've spent the past 9 months trying to improve my drawing skills by doodling and/or sketching daily. I enjoy the work of Lisa Congdon a lot (and have taken some online classes with her), and my favorite supplies are Micron pens and colored pencils. Watercolor and paints still intimidate me.

It's all about coffee all of the time. I love tea too - particularly fruit and/or nut flavored.

I love music - particularly 80s-00s rock, some country, and 1980s/90s movies and TV shows. These bands run from REM to Linkin Park to John Denver and The Monkees. Animals that have special meaning to me are llamas, foxes and penguins.

Other passions - farmers' markets, overpurchasing craft/arts supplies, board, card and dice games, 1960s/1970s vintage décor, my 1855 farmhouse, and my Peloton.

I've never met a bookstore that I didn't like - and I typically have a stack of 8-10 books that I need to read. I usually read fiction, short story, memoir and YA. Some of my favorite books are Never Let Me Go, Elsewhere, The Diary of Anne Frank, Station Eleven, and Before the Coffee Gets Cold. I also love UK magazines such as Flow & Daphne's Diary, and I spend entirely too much on subscribing to them.

I don’t get to watch a ton of TV and rarely movies with my work schedule but I’ve been enjoying binges of Younger, Upload, the Crown, Marvel’s Runaways and Schitt’s Creek.

Dedicated animal rescuer to two pitbull mixes and 8 cats, queer single parent to 3 amazing tween, teen & young adult humans, pre-pandemic world traveler to 37 states and over 20 countries & excited to send and receive real mail! I work in the healthcare field and higher education - both of which are extremely stressful and crafting, letter writing and books are the way that I try and practice self-care.

Swap Likes: Themes: anything animal, food, book, music, travel, 🏳️‍🌈. Kawaii Patterned paper ATCs Washi Tape Stickers Notecards Ribbon Mid-century design Modern art (Pollack, Rothko, Haring etc.)

For writing/poetry I don’t mind dark themes, dirty limericks, innuendo, farce or cursing! (With COVID-19 trying time avoid anything pandemic related).

Dislikes: Anything related to animal cruelty, guns, significant gore, proselytizing in anyway.

Right now, I am excited to learn more about Swapbot and am focusing on ATCs, flash fiction, cooking, reading and anything else that inspires creativity and community.

Comment: Hello Beth, I received your swap today. I Picked The Starry Night as my favorite Van Gogh painting as well. I went to the Rijksmuseum in February before the lockdown. There I saw another self-portrait by Van Gogh. It was beautiful but the Moma will always top everything. I have been to Oldenzaal! How is your dutch, haha.. it’s a difficult language. Thank you for the popover recipe! I am going to try this , there are many variations sweet or harty I see. Thanks again for your letter. All the best, Robyn

Comment: An RV in the Catskill mountains, coffee, cafe, wonderful thrift stores, those are, all, beautiful words of which I'm envious. Thank you for the beautiful letter and the summer stationary which will be put to good use soon.

Comment: Thank you for the cards you created. Just a helpful suggestion: just might want to use a sturdier paper for your base or use multiple sheets. An ATC shouldn't be able to bend into a U shape.

Comment: It was a pleaser to read your story. The combination of sadness and hope were wonderful and it dealt with subject matter similar to that a friend recently went through.
