About Me

Hi, my name is Eleanor.

I have worked in the book business or in publishing for most of my life. My kids are all grown and out of the house, so I am enjoying the free time to focus on mindful journaling, writing, and creativity in general. My husband is a chef, an artist, and an award-winning barbecue pitmaster. On the weekends, we go “thrifting” for art supplies, books, boho odds-and-ends, and vintage items for our outdoor tiki bar.


-colors: orchid, lavender, violet, deep pink

-books, reading, libraries

-mindfulness and meditation


-afternoon tea

-writing and journaling


-Stickii or Pipsticks stickers

-British motorcycles

-stationery, note cards, postcards, and stickers with magical, book, or tea designs; blank coloring postcards for adults


I tend to read mostly classic literature and science-fiction/fantasy.

The best books of 2023:

How to Keep House While Drowning: A Gentle Approach to Cleaning and Organizing by K. C. Davis

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

Nettle and Bone by T. Kingfisher

Widowland (Rose Ransom #1) by C. J. Carey

Emily Wilde’s Encyclopaedia of Faeries by Heather Fawcett

Joanna Russ: Novels and Stories Library of America Edition

The Eternal Feminine by Marion Woodman

Please Don't Send...

I appreciate each and every envelope I receive! If you are interested in a tailored list of things I would probably not use, here goes: I would prefer not to receive classroom reward stickers, Disney, things with artificial scents or cigarette smoke, free advertising postcards, tea/food, or religious things unless they are buddhist or pagan in nature (classical art depicting things like angels or madonnas is fine.) I respect the religious choices of others, but dislike proselytizing.

Please don’t feel you have to send me lots of extras. My space is limited so I prefer a few nice things over a jam-packed envelope.


If I find myself in the unfortunate position of sending a swap more than one or two days late, I will notify you. If, due to an unexpected emergency, I am unable to let you know that a swap will be late, I will contact you later and send the swap as soon as possible. I rate upon receipt of a swap and I don’t abuse the rating system. I hope my swap partners extend the same kindness and consideration to me.
