about me

VACATION UPDATE: My cross-country road trip has been moved to end of August so from 8/24-9/6, I will not be able to rate cards while I am gone. I am going to limit the swaps I join too so I don't accidently forget about them!

Hi! I'm Michelle from the great Pacific Northwest.
I live with my fiance and our furry ones, 3 lionhead rabbits: Shmi, Vader & Ginny.

ET the Walrus & I

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, The Avengers (Thor's my fav), Jensen Ackles, road trips, going to baseball games, the Oregon Coast, 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
-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, Fanboys, Eurotrip & Tropic Thunder.

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

my books

I am currently doing the POPSUGAR READING CHALLENGE

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

I read a lot of JK Rowling, JT Ellison, Philippa Gregory, Jamie McGuire & 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.

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 trying to get back into writing though.

my tv

I'm a big TV watcher. I try to watch the pilot episode of EVERY new show. If I like the pilot episode, then I'll go and watch the rest of the season.

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

Currently on air & watching: Rook, Succession, The Terror, Younger

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

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

my music

currently on repeat:
anything by MIDLAND
Music from the TV show EUPHORIA
Megan Thee Stallion

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

Always a favorite:
Mumford & Son's 'Sigh No More' album
Usher's 'My Way' Album
'Still Loving You' by Scorpions
ABBA
Musicals & Disney songs

Country- the more twang, the better!

BSB forever!

Podcast

Podcasts!

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

Looking for: PCs

LOOKING FOR: cards from Islands- 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!

(The ones listed above are places I went to but never found a card with city name.)

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

I love all Lantern Press cards!

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

Starry Night Typography Montage

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 so send nude or profanity cards if you want. You can also send LGBTQ things as well.

--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)
  • Pixar: Brave, Coco
  • Disney: Beauty & the Beast, Lilo & Stitch, Aladdin, Moana, Rescues Down Under, Emporers 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...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
  • Handmade: ones that are done professionally are OK 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, 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
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!
