About Me

I LOVE snail mail!

I love postcards that have recipes on them!

I also love:

Sloths

Pelicans

Flamingos

Elephants

Lions

Dogs

Horses

I collect fountain pens, stationery hoarder, consumer of lots of bottled ink for my pens, washi tape and sticker lover!

I have many, many pen pals and try to write at least 3 letters a day. I have gotten a personal record for me of 14 snail mail letter in my mailbox and live for the mailman to come! I love sending holiday cards for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine's Day and Easter. I send birthday cards to all friends and newsletter people the beginning of the month. I am a member of Postcrossing and love doing that as well.

I love dogs and have two. They are pointers so they are affectionately called the "Pointer Sisters". Lily and Iris

I am a member of Audible and Chirp. I love listening to books instead of reading. I am a fan of history books, mysteries especially P.D. James and Agatho Christie. Also love cozy mystery books.

I love happy movies for the most part. I do not like depressing movies. All Disney with happy endings for sure!

I no longer do crafts but have devoted alll my time to my fountain pens and penciling.

I travel as much as I can and my most memorable trip was to South Africa. I will never be able to have another experience like that. I saw so many animals and took so many Safari's. 10 game drives and 2 game river cruises. Put me on a plane, train or automobile and I am thrilled.

I just started swapping November 1. I am really astonished that so many people claimed they did not receive swaps. I am very careful to take care to record all my correspondence in my bujo. I try my best to get the swaps out as soon as possible. However, it is apparent that the post office is very poor at delivering mail. I now know that if someone has great ratings I would not give them a 1 or 3 rating because it is not their fault for sure judging from my own experience.

NOTE

If you do not receive something on time it is generally the post office being inefficient. I have mailed sll the swaps on time that I have joined so far.

IF YOU DO NOT GET SOMETHING FROM ME LET ME KNOW AND PLEASE GIVE TOME FOR ME TO RESPOND. I sm not tied to email and iften don t always see it in a day or two.

Comment: I agree—I’m ready for the winter cold to be over! Luckily, we haven’t had it too bad over here...more rain than snow. Would be nice to go to Tahiti or something though! Thank you for the postcard. :)

Comment: Update Jan. 13: This swap has been challenging. This is what happened: Mail by date was Nov. 25. Nothing had arrived by 12/14 and I contacted you. You didn't respond. I rated you a 1 on Dec. 16. I contacted you again on 12/22. Your only response was that you didn't check your swapbot everyday, but nothing about the outstanding swap. You contacted me on 12/26 and asked it if arrived. I replied no. You said you would get it out. On Jan. 7 you contacted me and said you were sending "the swap" but you didn't identify which one. I responded and asked for clarification as to which swap. You responded you couldn't remember but that it involved 5 postcards. On Jan. 10 I contacted you and asked where you lived. You responded "New Jersey." I replied I had received an evie earlier postmarked Dec 16 that did not have a name on the return address (only a city/state) and no note inside. You said that was the outstanding swap. I told you I would change the rating to 3 and you asked me not to do that. On Jan. 13, I received another envie from you, postmarked Jan. 9, and including a note that was rather impolite. I'm changing the rating to 3 because something did arrive -- the first thing to arrive was postmarked Dec. 16 -- well after the Nov. 25 send by date. Much of this confusion could have been avoided if 1) you had included your name on the envelope or 2) included a note in the envelope identifying the package or 3) clearly identified in your messages which swap you were talking about. Dec. 16: I'm sorry to do this. The send by date was Nov. 25 and as of Dec. 16 nothing has arrived. I messaged you two days ago (it shows read) but have not had a reply from you. Happy to change the rating if something arrives.
Response: Unintended. I thought I mailed them all. It should have been in a green Christmas envelope. Let me know if you got it in a few days. Did over 45 swaps and I thought all completed. My girlfriend mailed me 100 dollars for my birthday cash! It was supposed to be here by 18 th. Have not seen hide nor hair of that yet!
