About Me

Nancy here or rather β€œNan” as I prefer. I am a wife, teacher and mom of 3 fur babies. I am 34 years old and love love love the art of snail mail.

My hobbies include:

  • gardening

  • hand lettering

  • postcrossing

  • hiking

  • fishing (fresh & salt water)

  • camping with my husband and dogs

  • sending happy mail

  • painting and drawing with mixed media

  • vlogger

  • photography

  • cooking (send me a family recipe of yours)

I am a P.E. and dance teacher for pre-k - 5th grade and it is the most gratifying job I could have!! Scented stamp pads and reward stickers always appreciated.

My husband and I try our best to live a farm to fork lifestyle as much as we can in an organic way. We compost, can, pickle & dehydrate all things from our garden so truly nothing goes to waste! This life did not happen overnight but one small step at a time in the right direction. REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE

We have 3 dogs: Blanche (15 yr old Boston Terrier) Rose (8 yr old Pomeranian) & Sophia (4 yr old hound/ lab mix) our β€œgolden girls”

Comment: Thank you for the cute card and nice message. I'm a little envious of your 71 degree weather! We are suppose to hit 61 and no rain this week, so I'll be spending more time outside in the yard.

Comment: Hi Nan I recited your letter today, I absolutley loved everything. You put a lot of thought into the letter and the extras (which weren’t a requirement but you sent some πŸ’•) I really appreciate that. Your calligraphy is so cute. I really admire the fact your a teacher it takes a lot of work I presume. I’m sure your students absolutely adore you.To answer your questions. I have actually got more pets since you writing this I have 7 dogs 1 snake, 1 cockatiel, 2 budgies 2 bearded dragons and most recently 3 rats and 2 bunnies. I’m doing okay during these times its a little overwhelming at points though. I subscribed to your YouTube channel I hope your still doing well. ❀️

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful sweet pea flower. You are an amazing artist. I'm still working at the office, there's only a handful on my floor. Everyone else is working from home or from a different location. It's really weird.
