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.

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.


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!


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.);

Journal prompts;


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.




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.


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.


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


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.

Comment: Thank you for sharing your studies with me.
Comment: Hi Candace! Thank you so much for your wonderful answers to these 10 questions. I had forgotten about pear! That is a lovely scent, indeed. I laughed when I read that your kitty's name is, 'Grandpa Cat'...that's adorable. I don't know what you do without a TV; I envy you not being attached to it. You MUST decorate--even just a little bit--for the holidays ;+)

I'm hosting a new series of Bible studies in the Proverbs Women group. This series is focusing on the Gospel of Luke. It's found here if you'd like to join in. I've done it differently than the previous ones.
