about me

Hi! I'm Michelle from the great Pacific Northwest.

Brem ME Ginny

I live with my fiance and our furry ones, 3 lionhead rabbits: Shmi, Vader & Ginny.
(the bunnies do not come in contact with my mail so don't worry about pet hair!)

I like to travel/do road trips and I'm trying to visit all 50 states. So far, I've visited 36! Some of the prettiest ones I've been to (landscape wise) are: Montana, West Virginia, Oregon & Utah!

origin of my name: CHOWEFACE came from my baby sister. When she was small, she couldn't say Michelle so it came out as "me-chow" which eventually just turned to 'chowe' (she added the E on the end). Close friends and family picked up on it so now I get called CHOWE, CHOWEFACE or CHOWDER.


Things I love include Harry Potter, Jensen Ackles, road trips, going to baseball games, pub trivia, writing, Mexican, Filipino & Korean food and reading.


Love Sports- here are my favorite teams:

BASEBALL SOCCER HOCKEY FOOTBALL BASKETBALL COLLEGE COLLEGE

I watch the Olympics too. I love watching Winter Olympics more- I watch ski jumping, curling, hockey & figure skating! Team USA!

Seattle's getting an NHL team! So excited!

my movies

I watch ALL genres but I prefer raunchy comedies, musicals and heist movies.

Fav movies are:
-Scott Pilgrim vs the World
-Ready Player One
-10 Things I Hate About You
-Some Like it Hot
-Cabin in the Woods
-Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Dracula

movie franchises I love: HP, LOTR, Star Wars, MARVEL & Mission: Impossible.

Movies I constantly laugh at are Beerfest, White Chicks, Fanboys, Eurotrip & Tropic Thunder.

I love anything from Edgar Wright. (Cornetto Trilogy, anyone?!)

Cornetto

my books

I participate in the POPSUGAR READING CHALLENGE!

HARRY POTTER is my favorite.
(Pottermore says I'm a Slytherin & Pukwudgie.)

HP

I read a lot of JK Rowling, JT Ellison, Philippa Gregory, Jamie McGuire, Roni Loren & James Rollins (I met him once!).

FEEL FREE TO GIVE ME BOOK SUGGESTIONS WHEN SENDING A CARD!

My favorite genres to read are Thrillers, YA & Romance (Contemporary & Mature).

I love Little Free Libraries & have visited all the ones around me. I've gotten some really great books from it & of course, donated some I no longer need.


I also used to dabble in fan fiction in High School and wrote 10+ stories regarding Taiwanese pop stars (I went through a phase lol). I'm back to writing again but original stories this time!

my tv

I'm a big TV watcher. I try to watch the pilot episode of EVERY new show so at least I know what the shows about. If I like the pilot episode, then I'll go and watch more but I have stopped mid-season on some shows because I lost interest.

Favorite TV shows: 'I Love Lucy' & 'Supernatural'

Dean

Currently on air & watching: SUPERNATURAL - FINAL SEASON!!, Hawaii Five-0, His Dark Materials, Ambitions, The Challenge, Legacies, Prodigal Son, The Purge, Treadstone

I also enjoy cartoons: We Bare Bears, Rick & Morty, Bob's Burgers, Steven Universe, Gumball, Big Mouth

I've also been watching MTV's 'The Challenge' since 2000 & I'm team CT.

my music

currently on repeat:
MORGAN WALLEN
BRETT YOUNG
KING PRINCESS
MEGAN THEE STALLION

---I listen to a bit of everything!---

Always a favorite:
Mumford & Son's 'Sigh No More' album
'Poison' by Bel Biv DeVoe
'Still Loving You' by Scorpions
ABBA
Musicals & Disney songs
The original F4 (Jerry, Ken, Vic & Vanness)
Country- the more twang, the better!

BSB forever!

BSB

Podcasts!

I always listen to 'My Favorite Murder' on my drive to work. #SSDGM

Looking for: PCs

LOOKING FOR:

cards from Islands- any is appreciated but it would be awesome if it was a map or aerial view of island.

Looking for specific cards with city/town name ON FRONT:
Klamath Falls, OR
Fort Smith, AR
Cheyenne, WY
Farmington, NM
Moab, UT
Shreveport, LA
Corpus Christi, TX
Gary, IN (dad hometown)

^^ even if the city, state card you have is not listed above, feel free to send! :) I'd love to have a card from your town!

Olongapo

My hometown is Olongapo City, Philippines so I'd love any cards you send from that city or even Subic Bay and Bataan (I have family there).

I love all Lantern Press cards!

Specific Lantern Press I'm collecting:
Starry Night versions
Typography
Sign Destinations

Starry Night Typography Signs

I'll also take Washington cards, even though I live here. I have a special box for all WA cards & the ones people send me are always new to my collection! :)

Postcard Swaps

Love touristy cards but I do collect a bit of everything!

I'm not easily offended and I do have a small collection of nude/risque cards so send them my way if you like. I will also take LGBTQ+ cards too. Love is love!

--Sending in envelope: I love all colors so any envelope color is fine.--

If given an option, I prefer written & stamped.


I do a lot of the Scavenger Hunts and swaps involving multiple cards in an envie so here's a list to make it easier for people sending me cards:

  • Animal Cards: arctic animals like walruses, wolves, orcas & polar bears. (any bears or dogs are good too) - I'm not a cat person but I realize I join cat swaps & it's because I love cartoon cat cards. So if you send cat cards, I prefer them to be cartoon or drawings rather than real photo.
  • Pixar: Brave, Coco
  • Disney: Beauty & the Beast, Lilo & Stitch, Aladdin, Moana, Rescues Down Under, Emperor's New Groove
  • Christmas cards: religious or not- all OK! I especially like the ones with glitter and snow scenes. You can even send Hanukkah ones if you like.
  • State Capitols: I'd like it to say 'state capitol' on the front if possible
  • Map Cards: any except subway maps
  • US Maps: I have a box just for these so any and all is GREAT but I do need more of Alaska, Colorado & Rhode Island!
  • City/Town Views: I prefer if they were aerial view. I especially like small town & farm cards or little known places. I also like the cards that say Amish Country. I have a few of them so now it's a collection lol.
  • Multi-Views: the more little pictures, the better! I also like cards that have a montage of landmarks from a state with the state's name on the front
  • Landscape/Nature: anything nature related! Sunsets and waterfalls are a personal favorite. A volcano erupting would be cool too!
  • Structures: dams, bridges, monuments
  • National Parks: Would love to have at least one card from every Nat'l Park- Like real photo cards, not an art style like Anderson Design Group (cause I have those already)
  • Flower: daffodils, dahlias, ranunculus, poppies, peonies, bouquets
  • Canada: I'd like to collect cards from all the provinces, cards with the province name or town in that province. I'd also love to collect a map of each province if they have them
  • Europe: Norway, Sweden, Wales, Armenia, Hungary, Iceland,
  • Asia: Cambodia, Laos, Middle East
  • Africa: All countries
  • South America: Ecuador, Bolivia, Paraguay, Venezuela
  • Other Countries: Pacific Islands, New Zealand, Caribbeans
  • Food: recipes, Taiwan food cards, Singapore food cards, beer/liquor, weird food
  • History: WW2, Tudor history, military, naval ships, british royal family
  • Zazzle: generally I'm OK receiving these but don't send me one if the writing is blurry! Also, no zazzle Lantern Press (not the same size!)
  • Non-Traditional cards: Shaped, 3D, Glitter, Chrome, Maxi, Cut-out, Cork, Wooden - love them all!
  • Risque: nudity, dirty jokes, Pin-ups, etc... Send them my way! I'm totally fine getting these
  • Sports: All sports, either Stadiums, players and Olympics. I especially like Football & Baseball. No cartoon versions please.
  • College/University: any schools, even High Schools if you have them.
  • Sanrio: Sumikko Garashi, Gudetama, Pekkle, Pochacco (not a big Hello Kitty fan)
  • Handmade: ones that are done professionally are OK (like vistaprint) but I don't care for ones on cardboard. If sending naked, please make sure that it won't smear- it rains in Seattle so the card can get wet!
  • Collectible Types: Lali Riddle, Blue Cats from Russia (Irina Zeniuk?), Tarusov Pin ups, Lena Gnedkova, Postallove, WOW, FOTW, Icons Of...

Things I like:
Washi - samples are awesome
Stamps - I take non-US stamps and make collages
Stickers - not reward or teacher ones

Things I don't like:
Coloring Cards
Puffy Stickers
Art Cards (unless it's Thomas Kincade)
Quote Cards/ cards with only writing
Tea/coffee - I honestly won't use them.
Paper/scraps (If you do sent any, I give them to other people so they won't go wasted)
Blurry Zazzle (nothing worse than blurry zazzle maps!)

Bye!
