About Me

My name is Cynthia from the Pacific Northwest (Olympia, Washington). I am 43 years old and living with my husband and two young adult daughters that still live at home, on a tiny hobby farm with 3 labs, 3 cats, 5 goats, and some chickens.

I also work part-time at a pack-and-ship shop. A dream job for a snail mail junkie!

I hope to gain inspiration to do more swaps crafts, along to share those crafts, swap postcards, pen pal letters, and more! !

Favorite Books

I absolutely love reading!! I am an avid reader, reading/listing to audiobooks up to 100 + a year.

I'll read just about any genre minus a few certain futuristic themes.

Favorite Crafts

I have been crafting my whole life and have yet to find a craft I haven't wanted to try.

Favorites are (the list is constantly growing)

  • Crocheting
  • Cross Stitching
  • Photography
  • Pocket Letters
  • ATC cards
  • Card Making
  • Collage Art Projects
  • Junk Journaling
  • Bullet Journaling
  • Sewing Projects
  • Flipbooks


I DISLIKE crude, rude, or vulgarity. Otherwise, my likes list can be endless. I am not religious but not against receiving religious-themed crafts.

I genuinely love when others swap with their own hearts in mind.

I do not have small children so please no children/school-age stickers or foam stickers.


I am a picky tv watcher and have a hard time sitting still for very long to sit through an entire show (let alone a movie) but when I do, I watch a diverse genre of shows ranging from Game of Thrones/House of Dragons, Pride, and Prejudice (BBC version), Sherlock Holmes (BBC version), Derry Girls, Stranger Things, Perry Mason (both old and new series), True Detective, Peaky Blinders, Golden Girls, Murder She Wrote, and Longmire (just to name a few)

I do love watching TV shows based on books and documentaries (all kinds from crime to nature, but especially Ken Burns)

As far as movies go I'm a big Lord of the Rings/Hobbit and Star Wars fan. I like classic black-and-white movies, suspense/thriller (not horror) movies, comedies, military, and movies based on books—too many to list. I'm not too fond of rom-com movies.
