About Me

Hi y'all! I'm a 30-something, married mama. I have 2 boys (8 & 4), lots of cats, and 2 dogs. I have all sorts of hobbies and love trying new crafts, and I love sending and receiving happy mail. I spend a lot of time at thrift stores and yard sales, or trying to garden although I'm not very good at it. I love reading and listening to audible books. I started swapping postcards because my Hubby used to be a trucker and would bring home postcards from his travels. I sign my postcards, letters, and notes with a little heart with wings, rather than "love" or "sincerely" or "your friend" - I've been signing things like that since high school and even have a tattoo of a heart with wings on one wrist. I love anything with hearts with wings since they are special to me.

Favorite Crafts

ATCs, inchies, scrapbook/mixed media type collages, ink stamps

tiny things for dollhouses

I sew by hand so I usually stick to small, easy projects but I do like sewing. I want to try making cloth hexies for an eye spy type quilt - small print fabric scraps are appreciated. :)

Favorites List & Other

I love: thrift stores, old cookbooks and recipes (I do have a recipe card box and enjoy adding new recipe cards), red wine, cats of all types, doll houses and tiny things, ink stamps, glitter, flamingos, chickens, Mary Engelbreit designs, old houses, gardening (including seeds and bulbs) and garden gnomes, mermaids, pirates, lighthouses, and beaches, images of stars or the constellations (especially Orion) Miss Piggy, postcards (plain OR written on, stamped, mailed), Dolly Parton, castles, colorful things, Nag Champa incense, leopard or cheetah prints, anything with glitter.

I have several planners and love fun office supplies like unusual paperclips.

I appreciate Bible verses and such, and I'm a sort of liberal Christian (easiest way to explain!) so I also appreciate learning about other religions. I love images of Mary, Our Lady of Guadalupe, Julian of Norwich, angels, and any Saints.

I like all kinds of tea, flavored coffee, and dark chocolate. Decaf or regular!

I'm working on losing weight and I've lost 20 pounds so far with 25 more to go. Anything motivational helps :)

Sending and receiving postcards

My favorite colors are purple, red, and blue.

Favorite holiday is Halloween followed by Christmas and then the 4th of July. Also Day of the Dead

Halloween: I love all things Halloween! Black cats, bats, pumpkins, haunted houses, ghosts, skeletons, witches...

My boys like anything with Minecraft, Mickey Mouse, Transformers, Snoopy, giraffes, cars and trucks, Angry Birds, robots, or aliens.

Favorite TV, Movies, Books, Mu

Favorite TV: The Good Place, iZombie, Call the Midwife, Stranger Things, Big Bang Theory, The Walking Dead, Z Nation, Jessica Jones, Roseanne (the old one), I Love Lucy... It sounds like I watch a lot of TV, but I usually record stuff and then stay up Friday and Saturday night after the kids are in bed.

Favorite Movies: Arsenic and Old Lace, Ghostbusters, Aladdin, Bringing Up Baby, Jumanji, Beauty and the Beast, Howl's Moving Castle

Favorite Books: the Discworld Series by Terry Pratchett (Sam Vimes is my hero), Harry Potter, the Dresden Files, the I Hate To Cook Book and anything else by Peg Bracken, Jennifer Cruisie books, the Stephanie Plum series, Gone With the Wind, The Nightside Series by Simon Green

Favorite Music: I listen to bits of everything. I love Pandora.

Dislikes

Bugs, even cute ones, monkeys, the color orange unless it is something for Halloween, milk chocolate, politics.

Comment: You were right - this was the perfect card for me! I've never been to Springfield, IL and want to get there some time in the future. Lots of Lincoln things to see for a gal that went to Abraham Lincoln High School!

Comment: Thank you for the postcard, heart for acknowledging my profile. We're getting into the 80s this week, as well...I'm not a fan of the heat, but all the colors are really pretty, so I guess I'll suck it up. Hope you have a great week!

Comment: Thank you for all the goodies but the best thing you sent me by far was your lovely letter. I have read the Discworld series and Terry Pratchett's writing is so humorous and whimsical I absolutely adore it. What order did you read them in? I started with Guards! Guards! :D If you're ever interested in being bookish pen pals I would be 100% down for that. Warm regards and have a pleasant rest of your day.

Comment: Sarah, thank you for the Pennsylvania postcard. I always marveled at the train viaduct. We pass it on our travels to Massachusetts. I can't imagine how they were able to construct with the materials they had then. Most amazing structure were built to stay. Shirley
