About Me

I'm married and have one daughter. I work full time and life is busy and boring. Busy because work is routine chaos everyday. Boring because if I were to write in a journal about my daily events it would be the same words day after day. I needed a change so 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 art journals and gluebooks. When I complete a book I feel so accomplished. They are super fun to make! I make art journals out of pocket journals monthly.

I enjoy sketching and making collages. I collect other peoples art work and pretty paper from wherever I can find it.

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!

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

POSTCARDS: I use postcards in my journals. I love unique postcards, anime, unicorns, dragons, fairylike creatures, mermaids, Pretty, floral, funny postcards, colorful, romantic. and quotes. Honestly any card would be fine BUT.... I DISLIKE tourist cards of cities. They do nothing for me. Unless you've been there and have a story behind it. Sorry, I just don't care about skylines and old buildings. Tourist PC's with the Wilderness, beaches or State Parks is fine!

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 for the cute piggy PC. OMG, How are you all going to make it, without your husband's pay? Are they going let him get unemployment? They should! My husband & I are on Disability and have been for years. But between the both of us, we don't get all that much. It truly does stink! I hope for you & your family things to get better for you. Here in Pennsylvania no one can get help from the Assistance program, for Food stamps & such, as they closed down by order of the Government. Which stinks for those who really need it.
Response: Thanks so much for the rating! My hubby applied for unemployment but so did millions of other people so He hasn't heard from them yet. We are eating thru our savings at the moment. Hope this ends soon! Thanks for caring!
