About Me

I'm the mother of five grown children, with two still living at home; and the grandmother of four. We are a close family and enjoy movies, TV, museums, family game nights, and just hanging out together.

6-30 After being laid off from my desk job in international logistics back in April due to COVID, I am now working at a grocery store. I shop for their online orders, which are booming right now so I am kept very busy. Working on my feet all day has been quite a change! I really do enjoy it but it wears me out.

Postcards

My main interest at Swap-bot is postcards. I enjoy making and receiving handmade postcards, but I've come to enjoy the store-bought postcards nearly as much. I'm not really a collector... I just enjoy seeing pretty / arty / uplifting cards in my mailbox! I have a slight preference for receiving them naked and written on unless it's a swap for adding to my stash.

Zazzle cards (or the like) are fine with me. I've found the quality to be good on the ones I've seen, I don't really understand why some people don't like them.

Other swaps

In addition to swapping postcards I've also particpated in some simple flat envelope swaps. I think it's fun to share stickers, extra notecards, and washi samples. I can sometimes use other kinds of paper ephemera also. I'm not really picky about what I receive, if I can't use it I will usually just pass it on in the next swap.

I'm enjoying the teas swaps I've joined. I started out drinking mainly Chai tea but, through the swaps, I have been introduced to a wide variety of teas and so far I love them all! So feel free to send all kinds, I'm willing to try anything.

I especially love decorating the envelopes that I send stuff in and I really enjoy getting decorated envelopes in my mail box. Mail Art is the best!

Favorite Crafts

I like paper crafts mostly. Acrylic paints, brush pens and gel pens and markers (oh my!), collage, even watercolors. I have a couple of art journals that I play around in. I really enjoy making postcards and greeting cards to send to my family and friends. I try to recycle or upcycle whenever I can.

Miscellaneous

I love pretty / beautiful things - flowers and gardens of all kinds; fun patterns and prints; sunrises and sunsets; rainbows; the moon, stars, and the night sky; natural scenic wonders.

My favorite color is aqua blue or turquoise. I also like pink and red.

I like animals... especially cats and birds... especially owls! Other favorite animals are woodland creatures (foxes, deer, rabbits, etc.) songbirds (chickadees, cardinals, wrens), frogs, lizards, and garden insects.

Some other things I enjoy: Baseball (big Astros fan here!); bird watching and nature walks; Chococat and Keroppi (Sanrio); Spring and Fall; Christmas; Ancient / Classical Greece; Wine, Margaritas, Craft Beers; Mexican Food; Street Art; Coffee and quaint coffee shops; Books, especially sci-fi and fantasy, Monty Python, MST3K, geocaching.

Other favorites

Books / authors - JRR Tolkien; Mary Renault; Rosemary Sutcliff; Steven Brust; Dave Duncan; Ann Leckie; Dave Hutchinson (my tastes run to sci-fi / fantasy)

Movies / TV - Star Wars; Star Trek; Back to the Future; Ghostbusters; White Christmas; Indiana Jones; Guardians of the Galaxy; My Neighbor Totoro; Fantastic Mr. Fox; Princess Bride; The Birdcage; Knives Out; The Good Place; The Big Bang Theory; Brooklyn Nine Nine; (I seem to prefer action / adventure / funny / nerdy stuff!)

Music - Radiohead; Muse; Metric; The Dear Hunter; Panic at the Disco; Mother Mother; Amanda Palmer; Beach House; AFI; Keane; The Killers; Tame Impala (mostly Alternative)

Comment: Thank you for the interesting card that challenged by perspective - I thought they were fish until I looked closely (this means I put on my glasses :) ). I'll check out the book you mention also. Thanks for the recommendation. Take care.

Comment: Such a cute PC! I too enjoy watching the birds. I like to hear their songs in the morning when the world is still silent. I also really like watching rabbits and squirrels.

Hi, me again! ๐Ÿ˜† Thank you for the magical Halloween card! We had a quiet night and just about ate all the candy we bought for ourselves, lol.

Ha! Well, wonders never cease. I'm glad it showed up, too. I can stop giving the PO the stink eye for now. ๐Ÿ˜

stephiedee on Oct 26, 2019:

Oh good! I'm happy the resend made it. Guess the postal machines liked the taste of the first one too much.
