About Me

I'm married and have one daughter. I work in a library and live an insanely boring and repetitive life. I needed a change! I want to do fun swaps and get to know different people. I started doing Postcrossing and then I found swap-bot!

I've always been an artistic person. I took a lot of art classes in college and 10 years later these swaps are getting my artistic talents flowing again!

I just finished my own personal sketchbook challenge and that was pretty fun. I challenged myself to finish an 80 page sketchbook in a month and I succeeded! I love to sketch and also love collecting any sketches or drawings I can find.

I love making journals and gluebooks. When I complete a book I feel so accomplished. They are super fun to make!

ATCs are mini pieces of artwork! I love when I receive drawings and sketches the best but anything creative is nice to receive.

I absolutely love homemade postcards!!! They are so much fun to make and I just love receiving them!

I always rate kindly even if I don't particularly like what you send. But most of the things that I've gotten are amazing! If you send me something that is not on my list of likes I don't mind. I think its just fun to get something in the mail besides bills and advertisings. I look forward to checking my mailbox now and its a blessing that we have so many options to swap with here! I love this site!

If I am your partner and you haven't received anything from me please let me know and I will definitely replace whatever was lost in the mail because sometimes, somehow, someway things just get lost in the mail because of unknown reasons. Still mad at USPS for "losing" two boxes I sent to my husband a few years back. Needless to say, none of my insured boxes ever get lost. Moral of the story: Insurance!

Favorite Books

I absolutely love romance YA books. My favorites are: The Faerie Guardian Series Cloaked Alienated Dragons Bait A Kiss in Time The Only Alien on the Planet and The Duff

I love YA books because it has innocent love stories without all that nasty smut.

Things I love

I absolutely love anime and manga! Inuyasha is still my favorite anime of all time! Other anime that I like are: Sword Art Online, Attack on Titan, Fruits Basket, Toradora, Noragami, Cowboy Beboy, Kamisama Kiss, Outlaw Star, Samurai Champloo and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

I have been to the following anime/comic conventions: OtaKon (3) KatsuKon (3) Comic Con NYC (2)- I ran into Stan Lee there! Animazement (4) NekoKon (4) LibrariKon (2)

I absolutely love nature and love to hike. I've hiked thru Cozumel Mexico, Blue Ridge Mountains Max Patch Bald Black Mountain Grandfather Mountain and even part of the Appalachian Trail.

I love all animals but my favorite are:
fox, rabbits, seals, wolves and I love anything with butterflies on it!

I love the mountains and the beach.

I love Disney!

I love all things paranormal and mermaids, dragons and unicorns are my favorite mythical creatures. Any fairy creature is neat!

I love the tv shows Canada/America Border Patrol and the X Files!

Comment: Thank you. I enjoyed your story. I like romantic stories, too. I found your writing style easy to follow. I was glad it was revealed how he could get the mail she sent internationally by intercepting it at the post office. I am curious as to how he postmarked his items from overseas, though.
Response: Hahaha! I didn't think of that one! I'm glad you liked it.
