About Me

My name is Casey. I am from a small town you'll never hear of, deep in the Appalachian mountains. I’ve been married 16 years to my beloved and we have three children together— a daughter and two sons.

I stay at home while my family goes off on their days to work and to school. I spend mine making our home a comfortable place to be when they return. I treasure being a homemaker.

I am a Christian, an avid reader, a good listener and an honest friend. I love to crochet, cook and fiddle around in my flower beds when it’s pretty out. I have kept a journal since I was big enough to write a sentence and I love penpaling. I am easy to talk to and down to earth.

I like me. You will, too.

I love, love, love to write letters. Sitting down at my kitchen table in the quiet of the evening to write a friend is so relaxing for me. My letters are always hand written and I try and always use pretty stationary.

My Swaps

Swapping is very dear to my heart. It is without a doubt my favorite hobby and I have to say I love it. I take swapping seriously. With that being said, if there is ever a time when a swap of mine didn't make it to you, it's not because I didn't send. Sometimes things really do get lost in the mail. All you have to do is message me and I will resend or make it up to you the best I can. A lost swap is disappointing for everyone and it never has to be that way. Atleast not with me. All you gotta do is let me know. Thanks for reading.

One on One Swaps

I am open and up for one on one swaps with anyone who is an established swapper.

What I can send:
- washi tape - blank notecards with envies
- sheets of bookplates
- postcards featuring artwork

We can swap:
- pen pal letters
- recipes
- knitting or crochet projects

Just message me and we can set something up!

Pen Pal wanted

If you’ve made it this far in reading my profile, bless you!

I’m currently seeking a serious female pen pal. Just a good natured, honest person to get to know and hopefully start a long friendship with.

I’ve written a number of letters in pen pal swaps but they never continue beyond swap requirements.

Ideally, we’d share about life and family, maybe a recipe here or there, a small craft or just a postcard.

Drop me a line if you’re looking for a long term pen pal, too.

Comment: Do you knit? A job in a yarn shop would be awesome! I go to a local quilting/fabric store for Knit Night every Tuesday - they also have a nice wall of yarn! Many of the ladies who work at the store also knit, so if it isn't busy, they join in. I feel like more and more people are making a living with fiber - dying, spinning, etc. Yes, a dream job for sure! Thanks for your note and the spring-y washi samples!
Response: I taught myself to knit but not to fix mistakes. Knitting for me, the pressure is on to do it perfectly or the whole project is ruined. I wish I was better at knitting. I love to crochet but I think knitting is prettier.

Comment: Hey Casey! I hope your grandmother is doing well and has a speedy recovery after the surgery! Oh my goodness, your parents sound incredible! That's so nice of them to do that for you and your family!!! I read Memoirs of Geisha when I started High School but it's sad because I can barely remember anything of it, my little review said it was good though, so maybe time for a reread! Thank you so much for your email/message! I hope you and your family have a lovely week ^_^
Response: Thanks so much! I’m glad to know you enjoyed the swap. You have a great week, too. Oh, and thank you for the heart!

I don’t think I’ve ever been jealous about a cake before, but now I totally am!! Lol You are amazing. 😉

Stupid autocorrect. Crisply = once. 🙄

splendorpursuit on Feb 13, 2019:

I just came across your profile via your washi swap. “It looks like two pigs fightin’ under a blanket.” I looooove Steel Magnolias. I pretty much have the entire thing memorized. I crisply used the graveyard scene for a theater audition once and got the lead from it (no joke). Such a good film. They don’t make ‘em like that anymore, do they?
