About Me

Howdy!

I live in mostly Sunny Florida, USA. Not so far from the beach. The weather is great most of the time. There are lots of cool birds here too, which I love. One day I want to make friends with a crow. I am a nurse and have a grown child in college. I was an exchange student in Argentina forever ago and I love speaking Spanish which I do really well. I know a little Portuguese.

I used to do swaps many years ago and just got back into it. I used to do Fatbooks, ATCs, Mail Art. I have already started swapping mail art at IUOMA and would love to get into more swaps.

Things I love:

Cats, purple stuff, hag stones, heart shaped stones, Day of the dead, Frida Kahlo, anything science related, postage-related things and fake or real cancelled stamps, anatomical art and goodies, classical Asian art and Buddha (not so much the happy buddha), art of all kinds, vintage ephemera, reading, travel, healthy vegan cooking, swimming, musical theater, writing to penpals.

Things that don't resonate with me:

Religion - I respect everyone's belief but we should all have our own ways of believing Gore - Being a medical professional, I like anatomical but not gory

Favorite Television

Ted Lasso! That is all.

Just kidding, but I am obsessed with TL. Be Curious not Judgmental.

Abbott Elementary, Doctor Who, The Amazing Race, The Bear, Breaking Bad, Fleabag, Downton Abbey, Schitt's Creek, Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Umbrella Academy, Pride and Prejudice (BBC version)

Favorite Crafts

I have never met a craft I do not like!

Current obsessions are embroidery (I am doing an embroidery journal for 2024), crochet, mail art, collage. I just discovered Gelli plates so if we do a swap, good chance that you’ll get some of my printed papers. 😃

Favorite Movies

Corpse Bride, Hair, Shawshank Redemption, Spiderverse (both), Cinema Paradiso, Strictly Ballroom, Slumdog Millionaire, Waitress, La La Land, A Room with a View, Flipped Paulie Willow

Favorite Books

Tough but I will give it a go. I like a good mix of fiction and non-fiction. Love medical stuff, historical and modern fiction plus the classics.

Full Catastrophe Living, La Tregua, A Fine Balance (My favorite ever), Much Ado About Nothing, Sunshine, Outlander, Pride and Prejudice, The Pillars of the Earth, A Room with a View, De Dioses, hombrecitos, y policias, Ready Player One, 11/22/63, Americanah, The Martian, The Nightingale, We should all be Feminists, How not to Die, The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue, Faithfully Religionless, Circe, Where the Crawdads Sing, The Sun Does Shine, Boy Swallows Universe, Between Two Kingdoms, The Reckless Oath we Made, In Five Years The Book of Longings, Firekeeper's Daughter Caste: The Origins of our Discontent, Project Hail Mary, Lessons in Chemistry, The Storyteller: Tales of Life and Music, Remarkable Bright Creatures, Demon Copperhead

Comment: The colors in this are SO cool! From the orange and purple envie, to the blue flowers (I see you matching my three favorite colors btw), to this rad silvery ATC~ 💜🧡💙 I also really love these stickers. I've never seen any like these before, they're so pretty ✨ Thank you for the fabulous swap!
Response: The funny thing is I already had the envelope made and put together. I just looked at each profile to see which envelope would be best for which person and that one was screaming your name. 😃

Hi there! Welcome to SB. I saw your post in the forum about newbie troubles getting into good swaps. I'd be happy to do a type 3 swap with you -- mail art, collage, ATCs are all up my alley. I've long been a member of IUOMA too. And I'm also in Florida, which means the mail shouldn't take long. Maybe. Cross your fingers, ha!

Check my profile, let me know if you're interested. No worries if not.
