About Me

Update: I am currently going through a work up for an autoimmune disease and have not been feeling well. It’s pretty overwhelming. Please be patient with me. I try to check my messages twice a week and send most things on Saturday if possible. I still work full time so I’ve had to cut back on swaps which makes me sad but I have to. Please just contact me if there is anything you feel isn’t right or doesn’t come. Thank you and I appreciate your understanding ❤️

I’m 41 but a kid at heart. I like all things weird. I have two teenagers and a husband. I grew up in Renton, WA and didn’t go too far! My training is as a nurse but I don’t know what I want to do when I grow up still. I currently work as an Anticoagulation nurse. I stopped drinking alcohol 4 years ago and not ashamed at all! I’m a bit of a goof and spend a lot of time “snapping” my life on Instagram. Follow me if you like! @mermaidsandmailboxes I am trying to become the worlds biggest mermaid postcard collector! You can hear me on Episode 93 of the Postcardist Podcast (if you love postcards you should subscribe) https://thepostcardist.com/e97-mermaid-tales/

I am a Christian. I have been a photographer since I was 15 years old and enjoy candid and portrait photography along with manipulating angles and creative photography

I collect a lot of things, mermaids (send the postcards my way lol) in particular but I love old medical items, religious iconic art, interesting ceramics, enamel pins and weird stuff in general. I talk too much about serial killers (sorry not sorry) and Deadliest Catch (I talk too much in general). I’m obsessed with all things Hawaii because I don’t have headaches there and I LOVE coconut everything. Anatomy and science are AWESOME. I like trivia and memorizing historical stuff.

My Etsy Wishlist https://www.etsy.com/people/betsykiri/favorites/wishlist?ref=profile

I don’t do judgement... I’m more concerned by someone’s character than their choice of partner, faith, color, or place of origin....so on! I support human beings.

I suffer from a rare disease called Chronic Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension (google it sometime 🤪) and Trigeminal neuralgia, plus neuropathy. I have Degenerative Joint Disease as well, yipeee!

I started writing again to combat the isolation and loneliness that comes with an invisible, chronic and very painful condition (I look fine to everyone else). I count my blessings and I refuse to give up even though many day I do want to. I try to live like I have little time left, not a lifetime to come. I try to love all people the way they feel they deserve, not the way I think they deserve. Bottom line is everyone deserves the love that we believe deserve. Mental Health Matters!

Goonies, The Little Mermaid, Jurassic Park, Stardust, Titanic (I saw it 3 times in the theatre), The Notebook (I know cliche, but it’s a great movie), Atonement, A Star is Born, Indiana Jones series, Ghostbusters, Top Gun, Romancing the Stone. The Gods Must Be Crazy, 1980’s movies obviously!

Hobbies

Thrift and junk hunting, Junk journaling, Bible Journaling, watercolor painting, drawing, collecting interesting ceramics, chalk painting furniture, writing, collecting mermaids, collecting vintage medical items, collecting, pharmacy or apothecary items, collecting vintage decor, collecting enamel pins (mail related, quotes, funny).

What inspires me

Real, human, stories, that’s what inspires me. I am generally interested in anyone who has something they want to share about themselves. Your strange coincidence, six degrees of separation, past and present colliding, I want those stories. Your triumphs and struggles and how you fight or overcame (because that matters).

I have some of my own that I hope inspire others too.

Comment: If I could give you more than one heart, I would. This card alone is so beautiful and I love the textures. I love the stamps and the bandaids are so cute (I always get the kids ones too). Love the bookmark, I've been using a scrap piece of paper for a while, so I promptly put it in the book I'm currently reading. I also really like that you have a map for your little free libraries, I don't think we have a map of ours (sadly the one closest to me seems to have closed so I need to find a new one). If I'm ever in Seattle, I'm checking out this gift shop, mainly to meet this dog. Also, really love the stickers, especially the one you made! Now that I've basically talked about everything, I'll leave you with a thank you! I really enjoyed this swap!
