About Me

Hello everyone! I enjoy sending and receiving happy snail mail. I live in North Carolina and am a Wisconsin transplant. I have no human babies, just one elderly fur-baby - Mr. Carter the Cat a/k/a Grandpa Kitty, who is now legal drinking age - 21 ha ha!. Since quarantine, I've been adopted by a stray cat, she is all black with green eyes. I've named her Lizzie because she's a little lizard hunter. She stops by several times per day for breakfast, snacks, and sometimes dinner. I recently bought her an outdoor "cottage" to help protect her from the cold and wind, she has not taken to it yet, so we will see if she actually uses it. I would love to bring her indoors, however Grandpa Kitty will not allow me to - he still gets agitated whenever Lizzie or any other kitty visitors come calling.

I mainly like to do postcard, note card, and letter swaps. Please do not feel it is necessary to send any extras items to earn a heart. I already have way, way too much in my inventory and I'm trying to minimize!

Favorite Books

I enjoy most books, historical fiction, travel memoirs, and biographies. I will read just about anything, there have been maybe two or three books I started but did not finish because I did not like them.

Favorite Crafts

I started making cards a few of years ago; and have discovered that I do not have as much time for it as I thought I would. I would also like to learn how to knit or crochet, but oh where to find the time!

Hobbies

Postcrossing is my version of armchair traveling! I love to travel, and Postcrossing helps with the travel bug. I am currently in the initial stages of planning my next trip which will be either Morocco or walking the Camino de Santiago - hopefully in September 2021. So any recommendations or suggestions would be appreciated.

Walking / hiking and generally being outdoors, but there is nothing about camping that I enjoy - it's too much work to be enjoyable.

Favorite Television

I'm not much of a TV or movie watcher, but will occasionally will subscribe to Netflix when new seasons of The Crown, Grace & Frankie, Messiah and Emily in Paris become available.

Likes

I love all things stationery (paper, notecards, journals, stickers, washi tape & gel pens);

All things pineapple and lemon;

I have become obsessed with the 'hello' and 'choose joy' motifs;

I'm a Francophile so that includes anything French related (Eiffel Tower, macaroons, lavender, berets, etc.);

Travel themed stickers and washi tape;

Journal prompts;

Quotes;

Religious items: I am a Christian and I enjoy learning about the various religions of the world. Feel free to send something related to your faith for learning purposes.

Butterflies;

Pinwheels;

Flowers: poinsettias, magnolias, peonies and geraniums

Animals: Cats, Hedgehogs, Llamas, Otters, Owls, Lambs/Sheep and Giraffes (adult appropriate ones are a challenge to find); and

Vespa / scooter - I have always wanted one, hopefully someday I'll own one.

Dislikes

Glitter - it usually ends up all over the house and my face!

Hello Kitty - yes, I'm a cat person, but I simply do not appreciate Hello Kitty items.

Disney or any other childish styles;

Cosmetics, bath and body products - I love them, but I now have allergies to a multitude of the ingredients :(

Teas

I Iike earl grey tea, but my favorites are mint, and chai. I like trying different flavors, so feel free to send others you think I may like.

Comment: Hi Candace ! Received your wonderful note card the other day and thank you very much for it! Sounds like you had an adventurous weekend. Not sure when you did, as don't see a date. But your weekend sounded fun, with eating out Cajun style food, yum yum ! Then yet to another restaurant of Southern food. Again yum yum ! We ( DH & I ) haven't eaten out at a restaurant in close to 3 years, due to the Corona. We live in Canton, PA & all we have here are local fast food places. But they haven't been open since the Corona. As it's not good here with that. We can't even leave town to go to a restaurant. Oh well, Maybe one day soon we can.

Comment: Why did your cat turn green? Pollution from what? Do you like the little gifts she brings you?
Response: She's green because there is so much pollen floating in the air this time of year, it settles on everything; and she rolls around in it!

Comment: Thanks for the cute washi take and card!! I see it's a Paper Source card. I enjoy that store so much!! I'm sorry you're injured. My only outlet these days is the gym so I would be going crazy!! What type of workouts do you normally do? It sounds a lot like my gym. If I miss a day or two someone messaged me. Get well soon!!
Response: I love Papersource! That card came in their subscription box. I go to a boot camp style gym, lots of accountability partners! I drove past the other day and saw them running laps in the parking lot and I was like ooohh I miss it and can't wait to go back!
