About Me

I enjoy hand-writing letters so much, but my dominant hand has developed a pinched nerve or something that makes it difficult to grasp a pen. Some days are better than others, but I often have to resort to typing letters. Sorry if that's disappointing to a swap partner!

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
  • NPR is my jam
  • Most of the day I listen to podcasts or news shows while working, driving, crafting, 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, though I warn that I'm not terribly efficient at time management so I might not write for a month then three times the following month. I'm full of surprises that way!


  • 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
  • sarcasm
  • Indigo Girls
  • washi tape/stickers
  • colors: olive/jade green is favorite, followed by purple, silver, mustard, burnt umber, brown, gray, teal, turquoise
  • men in kilts
  • podcasts, especially humorous or political
  • vintage/retro
  • art nouveau
  • art deco
  • mandalas
  • daisies, sunflowers, bonsai
  • botanical images
  • butterflies/dragonflies
  • unusual typography
  • book pages or type in languages other than English


  • hair
  • rodents
  • housework
  • stereotypical "girly" stuff
  • animal prints
  • camel toe
  • fantasy/sci-fi
  • traditional holiday stuff; it just seems so artificial, especially xmas
  • 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


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


Comment: Thanks for the cute postcard. I’ve never seen one with sheep on it.

Comment: Thank you for the wonderful collection of postcards - although I'm wondering if I do or do NOT want a chance to test out the elevator knowledge :^)

Comment: My country is known as a tolerant country: drug policy, gay marriage, sex education and free birth control pills for young people (therefore a small number of teenage pregnancies). For centuries we have received refugees because of persecution in whatever way. But times are changing. People are becoming more extreme in their opinion: so many people in such a small country. Today our (Christian) minister of education made a baffling statement: "Schools may ask parents to sign a statement condemning a homosexual way of life". And that while schools must provide a safe environment. My country has exploded: are we back in the Stone Age? Nobody understands any of this. Questions were asked of the government. He has now nuanced his opinion, but the outrage remains. And just today your amazing PC arrived....goosebumps! Coincidence really does exist!
Response: I can’t remember which card I sent. I think it was one from the “Protest” series, based in your response. The future will be better, it has to be!
