About Me

I'm a 43 year old woman who is married with no children. I could be described as a chatty, creative and friendly person. I have been pen palling for 30 years. I love to travel internationally, collect fonts, shop for pal supplies, binge watch Netflix, and hang out with my 2 puppies. I would love new pen pals if they write long letters (5+ pages) and prefer 2-way conversation. I'm open minded to all lifestyles and interests.

Things I like to receive

Note sheets

Good quality stickers

Handmade envelopes

Address labels

Inspirational quotes

Fruity teas

City/country magnets

Postcards (especially from your city or country)

ATCs you've made

Paper flowers


Pink, teal or green items

Vintage pictures and stickers


anything French or English bulldog

Anything llama or baby sloth

anything mandala

Kawaii and Sentimental Circus stickers and paper

Things I don't like to receive

Washi samples


Religious things

Things that smell of smoke


Gory or sexual things

Negative letters

Form letters

Short letters

Favorite Crafts

Right now I'm obsessed with mixed media ATCs. I have made so many and I'm excited to trade in some of the groups!

I'm open to private trades as well. Just message me.

Random Facts

  • I have been to over 20 countries and 47 states
  • I microwave my ice cream and plain M&Ms
  • I like to do adventurous things as often as the opportunity strikes like sky dive, crazy hikes and swim with sharks
  • I was the only girl in my family & extended family (both sides) until I was 12
  • I call my dogs my "fur babies" even if it makes people cringe
  • I've never had a speeding ticket
  • I believe that if you focus on what you're grateful for, more good things come your way

Rating comments

I always rate. If I miss a rating, please contact me.

I love to give hearts and feel it's fun to get one so why not give one. Most people seem to go above and beyond even with little stuff, so if it seems like you are trying to make a swap special I will rate special. :)

I will try to reach out if I haven't received something even if you said you mailed it. I will give you a chance to make it right but may rate a 1 or a 3 until it's been made right depending on the situation. I hate doing it though and feel sad if I have to. If something comes up, just reach out to me and we can work it out rather than flaking. :)

Comment: Hi, Christine! I was excited to see your name in my mailbox, because I remember sending you my list of 50 things from my childhood at the beginning of March. Thank you for sharing one of your first ATCs with me. I kept seeing swaps for them on here, but wasn't sure about joining since I am new to them, too, so when I saw your ATC for Beginners swap, I thought it was the perfect chance to try it out! Thank you for creating this swap! Thank you also for the super cute goodies and envelope you sent your ATC with! I loved it all! Hope you are well and having a nice weekend!
