About Me

My name is Megan. :) Nice to meet you! Thank you for dropping by.

-- UPDATE - 11/13/16

I have been off for four months due to great personal stress and grief. I am still struggling a lot, but I am finally ready to start swapping again and hope that this will help bring some light back into my life.

I'm an enigma. I'm sometimes very shy and other times bubbly and outgoing. Mostly I am thoughtful, romantic, and poetic. I love the feel of a pen in my hand. I don't like printed out letters.

I am self employed full time crafting and writing. Right now I'm mostly focused on the crafts, making miniatures, art dolls, toys, ornaments, etc which I sell online at: http://www.mossmountain.etsy.com

I'm from Maine, USA, lived in England for 6 1/2 years, and recently moved to KY, USA. I have recently divorced, and am much happier in my current situation, but it's still not an easy transition. There's a lot of sh*t to deal with! I also had to leave my 2 fur baby cats behind with my ex because I couldn't afford to fly them over the ocean. I miss them more than I can say. I could use all the happy and cheering up you can find. :)

After living overseas for so long, I am currently enamored of all the weird and wonderful American food products that have been invented since I left. New oreo flavors like pumpkin spice, gingerbread M&M's exist apparently, chewy sweet tarts, rainbow nerds ... ANYTHING pumpkin spice, bring it on!!! Yes, I'm that girl, but only because they don't have it in England and I missed out!

My interests include travel, crafts (especially crochet and hand sewing), writing poetry and fiction, walking, vegetarian cooking and baking, exploring, thrift shops/yard sales, cats, writing letters, poetry, trying new crafts ... on and on.

I'm a vegetarian, and have been since Dec. 2012. I don't eat meat, but I do eat dairy/eggs. I'm NOT a vegan. No, I don't miss meat. Okay, once in a great while I do miss pepperoni a tiny bit. ;) But I have not caved once since I switched over.

Comment: Thank you for sharing about your grandma. Mine had mice in her house, but they weren't pets. She even had a possum living in her house for about a week because she always left her backdoor open.
Response: Funny! :) Mine did not really have a pet mouse, it was indeed a myth. But a fun one. :) My Grandpa was a game warden, though, so my mom and her sisters did actually have pet skunks once!

Comment: Thank you for sharing. Isn't it lovely how so many great memories involve creative pay and food? That's what grandmothers are good at I guess.
Response: Yes! It's true... Everyone in my family is/was creative in some way or another. :)

Comment: Hi Megan! Thank you for sharing your wonderful memories of your grandmother. I especially love the story about Harvey the mouse! Homemade strawberry jam and peanut butter cookies are some of my favorites as well. How nice of her to make those for your visits. I was in my late teens when all four of my grandparents had passed, however I hang on to those memories and appreciate each and every moment I had with them. :o) Happy swapping! Patricia
Response: Thank you, Patricia! I'm glad you enjoyed them. :)

Comment: Yesss today your wonderful envelope arrived! Such a cute envelope, and I love your letter and nice goodies! Especially the felt tulips are lovely, I'll give them a nice place in my house 'cause they are so sweet and lovely for spring! Thank you very much for bringing some sunshine (and i will definitely look for you on FB!)
Response: Oh, thank god! I'm so happy that you got it and that the PO did not get mad at how I did the label LOL It was truly an experiment as I was told we can do the large envelope labels on PayPal, but PO will not tell you that in person. Also, SO HAPPY you like the tulips! It took me a little too long to come up with what to make, and then I saw you didn't like yellow (I think that was it?) so had to change some colors. :)
