About Me

I participated in InCoWriMo in 2019 but only managed to send out a dozen letters. I'm hoping that I can do better in 2020; if you would like to receive one from me during the 2020 event, PM me with your address!

I always appreciate tuck-ins on swaps, but if you’re my partner don't feel it's necessary or expected to send any.

A few things about me

  • 46yo, female, married w/ 4 kids (2 grownups, 2 teens)
  • atheist homeschooler--no denim jumpers here!
  • I cook several hours a day--all gluten-free and vegan
  • paper addict, esp unusual writing paper
  • washi paper addict as well
  • constantly reading, don’t leave home without my kindle or a book
  • unrepentant potty mouth
  • I love coffee!
  • allergic to nature IRL but gravitate toward colors found in nature, especially autumnal colors
  • after 5pm you WILL find me drinking white wine every day
  • NPR is my jam
  • Most of the day I listen to podcasts while working, driving, etc.--I'm always looking for recommendations, so feel free to suggest. There are about 70 podcasts on rotation in my ears.
  • I like to write and receive long, newsy letters. Usually I write longhand because I'm at a cafe or coffee shop, but occasionally I type (well, on the computer) because it is soooo much faster and my fingers can follow my brain easier that way.

LIKES:

  • books! Fiction, non-fiction, mysteries, thrillers, classics, poetry...I will read pretty much anything except fantasy/sci-fi. I like there to be at least some semblance of realism
  • pen-pal letters
  • white wine
  • coffee
  • Indigo Girls
  • washi tape
  • colors: olive/jade green is favorite, followed by purple, silver, mustard, burnt umber, brown, gray, teal, turquoise
  • kilts
  • podcasts
  • vintage/retro
  • writing/receiving letters
  • art nouveau
  • art deco
  • mandalas
  • daisies, sunflowers, bonsai

DISLIKES:

  • hair
  • rodents
  • housework
  • stereotypical "girly" stuff
  • animal prints
  • camel toe
  • fantasy/sci-fi
  • traditional holiday stuff; it just seems so artificial, especially xmas
  • GLITTER IS THE WORST. CONFETTI IS HER BITCH STEP-SISTER
  • anything containing lavender (I'm allergic). Love the color, not the plant
  • sweets/candy
  • ribbon/fabric
  • religious or faith-based ANYTHING
  • “cute” or kawaii
  • kiddie/juvenile stuff

WOULD LIKE TO SWAP (I.E., MSG ME AND I WILL RESPOND):

  • shared journals
  • letter-writing paper/sets
  • decorated/homemade envelopes
  • ATC
  • flip/envelope books/tags, etc.
  • unusual images
  • typography
  • old book pages, any language
  • images of: maps, clocks, keys/locks, dragonflies/butterflies, celestial, artistic nudes, goddesses, collage elements, foreign language text
  • tags
  • vintage writing
  • decos/smashbooks

Postcards:

  • out-of-the-ordinary
  • artsy
  • funny
  • eccentric
  • vintage
  • non-touristy

Comment: I love the Kindle picture! I hadn't really thought about how to do ebooks. I don't really do ebooks, though I love audiobooks that I download from the library (can't really use those for this swap!) Sounds like an interesting book. I'll have to check it out.

Comment: Thanks for your letter :) I'm pretty sure there is an AirBnb castle somewhere around the world! :D A few weeks ago I saw a post that a castle can be rented on AirBnb in UK. I wish I knew who posted this page!!!
Response: How cool would that be!?

Comment: Thanks for your lettter. Somehow I just can't get into reading on a device -- I want the real thing in my hand. But I've been giving them away as soon as I've finished with them; there are three different places I donate book, depending on topic.

Comment: Thanks so much for the nice letter. :) Your New Years sound much like ours - without the history! :)
Response: That recent history can just go away! :) I've only told 2 other ppl what happened but since I don't know you IRL I felt it was safe.

Response: This was a fun swap! I buy journal cards but kind of flounder as to how to use them so it's fun to see various others.
