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.

I mainly like to do postcard, notecard, journal and letter swaps; so 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!

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. I am making my way through the the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris, in between reading books for book club.

Favorite Crafts

I started making cards last year; so I'm not very good at it yet (ha ha!), but I am improving; and have discovered that I do not have as much time for it as I thought I would.

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 - I'm undecided right now. 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 I will make an effort to watch the Green Bay Packers if they are ever shown on our local station - which is rare!

Likes

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

All things pineapple;

I have become obsessed with the 'hello' motif;

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

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. They are all fascinating, and the 3 monotheistic religions are very closely related.

Butterflies;

Pinwheels;

Animals: Cats, Hedgehogs, Llamas, Otters, Owls, 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

Teas

I have recently discovered that I Iike earl grey, mint, and chai teas. I like trying different flavors, so feel free to send others you think I may like.

Planners

I would like to join in on the planner craze, but the selection is so overwhelming. If you use one of the planner systems, please let me know your favorite and why.

Comment: Hi Candace! So sorry for the late rating. What an amazing study on Ruth. This was so SO very timely, as in the last two weeks, we just found out we are moving to South Charleston and I have been struggling to much, so I reviewed the study and I was so thankful to have received your notes! Thank you so much for such a wonderful swap!!
Response: Yay no more snow for you! I'm from WI myself. LOVE Charleston, best wishes on the move.

Comment: Oh, thats when you send your cat priority! If it fits, it ships! 7.5 miles is impressive. I'm working my way up to a challenging 10 mile bike trail. Hoping I can do it before the bikes go away for winter! Thanks for the letter. :D
Response: LMAO :) That's too funny!

Comment: Oh my goodness! I'm so sorry for the late rating, I just found your card while picking up my desk! Hope everything went well at the doctor's office! LOL, love the way you describe that doctor's visit. And will forever be calling myself a "domestic goddess" while cleaning. Hope your had a great time with your friends when they came to visit! Thank you!

Comment: Thank you for the happy little notecard Candace! Your story of not wanting to go to lunch after hiking 7 miles made me laugh and made me think of my husband. After we go to the gym together and work up a sweat he always wants to run errands after and then gets mad that I want to wait in the car LOL I don't want to "stink out" just like you hahaha!
Response: Ha-ha! At least we are being courteous to others around us :)

Thank you so much for the amazing package! I especially can't wait to use all of that lace! You were very generous especially with the postage! I really appreciate this group and it was fun to host so many swap. Best Wishes Rebecca

Thank you for the lovely reply to my letter! I would just write back, but I can't promise I would remember to, I'm horrible at that. That's why I like swap-bot, a visual reminder of what I need to send :) I've been down to Charlotte a few times, usually to go to the airport, and my parents live about an hour and a half north east of Vegas! Not in Nevada though. The reply was very sweet.
