Short attention span summery:

  • I love colorful fun things especially when made by you. I'm not picky or easily offended at all so feel free to share what you are passionate about or trying for the first time.

Very long version:

  • I enjoy learning, so introduce me to something new. I'd also love to hear about the techniques you use in your arts and crafts.
  • Strive to make you laugh and feel great even if just for a moment. I'm an oddball and tend to think outside the box. If I get it wrong please let me know so I can fix it.
  • Scottish terrier lover and pet rescue supporter. No pets of my own currently:(


  • Mail art, flat stickers, postcards(handmade ok), labels, address labels, postage stamps, postalettes, and washi samples.
  • Anything handmade or decorated by you. Atc, pocket letter, inchies, flip books, stuffies, pins, really anything.
  • Lists, jokes, poems, haiku, limericks.
  • Instapot and slow cooker recipes.
  • Vintage stationery 1960s - 80s.
  • Bright and natural colors.
  • recycled and partially used items

Anything with an animal 💜:

  • Scottish Terriers.
  • Rescued pets and their stories.
  • Mega fauna - e.g. Woolly Mammoth, Saber tooth tigers, giant sloths.
  • Donkeys, goats, and pigs.
  • Fish and other sea life, horseshoe crabs.
  • Woodland creatures real or imagined.
  • Put a bird on it: Flamingos, barn swallows, woodpeckers, crows, turkeys, birds of prey.
    Tell me about your backyard birds!
  • Ferns, oak trees, poppies, hydrangeas, pines, cherry blossoms, native plants, moss, and mushrooms.
  • The only animal thing I don't like are real monkeys and chimpanzees especially when dressed in clothes, they creep me out. Go figure that the flying monkeys from oz are my favorite though??? Maybe because they're fake? It's the trained circus animals that creep me out. Just no.


  • Halloween year round. Love creepy vintage costumes and photos. Classic Universal monsters and Horror movies. Witch Hazel and Gossimer.
  • Silly or dark humor.
  • Oddities and Imperfections.
  • Pop culture, esp 70s and 80s. Let's talk about that time the bionic man and woman fought bigfoot!
  • Cults, I'm fascinated.

Artsy fartsy:

  • Local traditional art
  • Outsider arts and crafts.
  • Bright bold colorful florals.
  • Art deco and nouveau.
  • Modern art, turn me on to an artist you love.
  • Illustration- vintage children's books, ads, propaganda, industrial workers
  • Vintage Hawaiiana
  • Mid century architecture and furniture.
  • Industrial, steampunk, time travel, space, and scientific themes
  • Religious art, icons, and shrines.


  • Regional culture, artists, dialect, ghost stories, treats, and recipes.
  • Kindness, equality, and tolerance.
  • Your family history and origin. Stories about eccentric relatives.

Fictional characters:

  • Spock and Picard.
  • Batman 60s series
  • 60s -70s cartoons.
  • unexpected anthropomorphic "things"
  • R.O.U.S.
  • Portlandia. I think I've worked with every character on this show at Whole Foods. They get it so right and I love how everyone takes themselves so seriously.

Food and travel.

-pickles, chocolate, nuts, and candy.
- illustrations of food, esp breads and pastry.
- Austria, Puerto Rico, Mexico, and Canada.
- Mountains, forests, and beaches.
- Wine and cocktail recipes.

NOT crazy about-

  • coconut, chai, and zinger tea
  • non communicators and non raters
  • glittery little girl stuff-the exception is Valentine's day, go nuts!
  • scented items: There are scents I love and many I can't handle, ask before sending please. I do love scratch and sniff though.
  • Not that anyone would, but for the love of all things good and holy please do not send mustard.
  • 3D stickers, I have tons.
  • Willful ignorance and blind obedience.

Favorite Movies

These whimsical, visually stunning, and goofy ones

Wes Anderson films are so good that I want to eat them.

This being said, you'll have my love forever if you send something related to his movies.

Favorite Books

Always reading something and it varies greatly, could be science fiction, fantasy, or historical fiction. Biography, Ted talks(don't know where to put these), or old childrens science textbooks.

I HIGHLY recommend: 3/24/17 -The fifteen lives of Harry August by Claire North.
-The Borgias have been fascinating me lately, it's amazing that we have the details of these people's lives that lived so long ago. I get exhausted just thinking about their daily lives.

Favorite Music

Spotify is on most of the day. Frequently Go to: 80s alternative, Wilco, The Who, Monsters of folk, Jack White, and love finding new music!


My favorite murder, RU talkin U2(and REM) 2 me? Comedy Bang Bang, small town murder, Conan needs a friend, and now I see that I spend entirely too much time listening to podcasts, lol.

Favorite Crafts

Anything handmade by you is greatly loved and appreciated, no matter your skill level.

I enjoy making papercrafts: pocket letters, postcards, atcs, and mail art. I just haven't felt very crafty lately so haven't been joining those types of swaps. I do continue to buy and hoard supplies of course.

I really love needle felting, but am allergic to the wool:(

Thanks for reading. Have a great day!

Response: You are correct! The funny thing is I first made a mistake and wrote only 2 truths and a lie in haiku form and though I was being very clever and then had to shove in one more truth at the top, lol. Oh well. Thank you for the heart!

sherba31 on Oct 28, 2019:

Hi Laura! Thanks for the surprise Halloween happy mail! That little french fries card is adorable as well as the treat bag! The labels and postage stamps are welcome and will be used quite soon. I WISH we had some autumn leaves going on here but maybe not for a couple of months! It's not in the upper 90s anymore so for that I am grateful. Enjoy your Halloween/Fall. Glad to hear from you.

kiddomerriweather on Sep 28, 2019:

Thank you for all the amazing Halloween goodness for my September WW. I love that journal pocket and it was so much fun going through all the goodies inside! I always love getting packages from you.

djcamp04 on Sep 27, 2019:

❤️ Thank you so much for the adorable journal pockets! I love them! I will be putting them in my journal tomorrow when I work on one of my pages. ❤️

fishsteak on Sep 25, 2019:

Thank you for the great wishes for my September WW wishes! I can't tell you how much your thoughtful mail brightened up my mailbox.

I love the Wright postcard and Chicago recommendations. Thank you for the stamps!

Funny enough, Los Angeles also has a couple branches of Eataly and the Renegade Craft Fair, although I still haven't been to any of the Eatalys yet.

IsadoraWing on Sep 24, 2019:

thanks! for the birthday postcard and movie list from the WW group! On the Waterfront is one of my favs too.
