About Me

June 10, 2019 Update

I recently lost my father (in May) after a struggle with a long illness. It's been a difficult year for me and my family. I took a short break from swapping, and am now easing back into it. Thank you to everyone who sent their condolences. This is a wonderful community.


Hi! I love to journal, and keep several different types for different purposes. I love my hobonichi, my midori travelers' notebook, and my bullet journal the best. I'm not very artistic, but I find sketching and watercolor very relaxing. I love to send snail mail, and just found swapbot, I am excited to try it! I'm still new at mail art, but learning as I go.

I have 3 young children who keep me very busy. We also have two dogs, a Border Collie mix and a poodle. I work at a local nonprofit.

Along with Journaling, I love to read, I am a big sci fi nerd, and I collect fountain pens. My family loves to camp, hike and canoe.

Favorite Books

I love reading everything. Jane Austen would be my favorite, and anything in that genre. I also love mystery, sci fi/fantasy, thrillers, fiction and non fiction.

Favorite Television

I have eclectic taste in TV. There's the usual sit coms and dramas. But I also like quirky shows, anything British (Endeavor!) and vintage mysteries (Poirot). I love Doctor Who, Sherlock AND Elementary, You're The Worst, and any Star Trek. I love cooking shows, especially Chopped and Halloween Wars. Lately, I have been enjoying The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and The Umbrella Academy!

Favorite Themes/Things

-Fountain pens

-Purple, Green, Grey

-Nature, botanical, mountains

-Gardening, vegetables, Herbs, Artichokes

-Goats, Dogs, Sloths, hedgehogs, bears

-Anything Tim Burton or Alice in Wonderland

-Stamps

-Flow magazine

-Yoga, meditation, simplicity

-Cabins, camping, backpacking

-Cooking, canning

-Vintage

-Crochet

-Bicycles

-I really have eclectic tastes, and I love variety!

Tea of Choice

Tea seems to be a big deal around here. I have no problem with that. I drink all kinds, but prefer real tea over herbal or infusions. My standard is Earl Grey, but I am also one of those weird people who likes Lapsang Souchang even though my husband calls it creosote tea. I love flowering teas. And my favorite green tea is gunpowder green tea. I also like different mint teas and chai. But I really love trying different kinds and I love the different tea bag art.

Please don't send...

I really do love almost everything, but as I have actually received a few of these things (and some are more problematic than others) I thought I should mention them.

Please don't send me:

-negative images on postcards or anywhere else. -political or religious items -Christmas themed items

Coffee

I'm a coffee addict. The first step is admitting you have a problem, right? I drink tea too, but coffee is a must have for mornings. And I love Starbucks (I know, I know) and Starbucks related paraphernalia. I love to collect cool Starbucks gift cards and other ephemera...

Craft Stuff I like

I'm not picky and really love seeing all the different things swappers share! But if we're doing a journal/craft swap, here are a few ideas of things I especially love: -Different types of paper, book, ledger, tea stained, etc.

-Twine, lace, paper twine, etc.

-regular or passport inserts

-stationery, note paper, sticky notes, little envelopes

-stickers of all kinds (please no reward stickers)

-washi

-die cuts and stamped images

-journal cards

-ephemera of all kinds

-anything handmade by you that you want to share
