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 earlier this 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.);

Butterflies;

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 and mint teas. But I like trying different flavors too. I am currently trying apple cider and a pumpkin spice black tea.

Comment: That is too funny about uncle Bob. Where we used to live the firemen would do that job for a donation, we've used them a couple of times and they are great. I love the little sticker stamps to put on your card, they are super cute and I like the card.

Comment: Candace, thank you so much for the sweet card! I loved the story about Uncle Bob dressing up as Santa :) I remember my Uncle Pete did the same thing many years ago... he had a scraggly brown beard at the time and was as skinny as a twig. He dressed up as 'Aussie Santa' in board shorts, flip-flops and a tank top, and my sister and I knew it wasn't Real Santa! However we were laughing so hard at his outfit that we couldn't say so! Brings back some fantastic Christmas memories with family and friends... Happy holidays to you and best wishes for 2018! From Sophie

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.
