About Me

**** I am working on those 1s and 3s from a few years ago. Thanks for understanding :) ****

I've been an active snail-mailer since 2005 when I joined postcardx, and have been addicted ever since. I'm on sendsomething.net and postcrossing.com.

I am a late-twenty-something adventuress - I have a serious case of wanderlust. I love books, movies, and the outdoors. I miss the hiking in southern California, but I'm happy to be back in my home state of Nebraska. Nothing beats "Nebraska Nice."

Favorite Crafts

Papercrafts, especially making postcards, cards, and envelopes.

Crochet and knit! I love vintage patterns and odd-type yarns. I really want to make an amigurumi, but I haven't done that yet.

Sewing clothes and quilting! **It is my goal to make a quilt out of fabric from around the world, So if you'd like to send me fabric, anything from scraps to fat quarters or ANYthing would be appreciated!!!

Favorite Books

Reading is my favorite. I love to read and would love to hear what you're reading now or what you think I should read. Really!

Favorites: *The Hobbit by JRR Tolkein (I actually collect different editions of the hobbit, I have about 8 right now),
*Wicked by Gregory Maguire, and his other novels, *The Harry Potter Series, of course. *Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver, *My favorite romance author is Stephanie Laurens, *The Hunger Games Trilogy, *The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, *Sahara by Clive Cussler, *The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman (AMAZING),

What to Send

I'm not picky, and I'll love whatever you send. But if you'd like specifics:

FABRIC!! Scraps, fat quarters, whatever. Anything for my "Quilt Around the World"

Postcards - I love any postcard but especially unique/strange cards, adcards in other languages, or vintage. If you send a "tourist" card, I would love hear about your trip there :)

Paper/Stationery or Journals, and embellishments.

Crochet/Knit patterns.

List of likes: Gnomes, mushrooms, elephants, pink flamingos, clownfish(real not nemo), classic literature, learning languages, HALLOWEEN!, how-tos, gardens, hikes, stars, mythology, egyptology, Themis, Astrology (Libra!!), peacocks, robots, art, brian andreas, trees, buttons, movies, stamps, Dogs (I am allergic to cats), recipes, random bits, magnets, faeries, the ocean, travel guides, anything eclectic.

Comment: Neat photos, Charlie! That's very cool that you live in a converted power plant! I too used to love sleeping on my couch. When I lived in Seattle, I often spent the night on mine, with a DVD repeating on low sound in the background. :-) Thank you so much for sharing! :-)

ESG: Quick friendly profile comment

Hello there! I am a huge victim on wanderlust as well! (I always love it when people use this word, german ftw yay!) I have never been to Nebraska, or to the US for that matter, but I am sure it's a beautiful place to live :)

And I had no idea what an amigurumi was until I read your profile! I googled it and these are so cute! You hould definetly make one! Thanks for educating me :D

And yay! Learning languages is awesome! ♥

Hi Charlie!

It was nice reading your profile! The book that I recently read was 'The girl on the train'. I would really recommend that book! I had tears in my eyes.

Best and warm wishes from the Caribbean!
