About Me

My Pinterest * * * Goodreads Account

Hello, I am Amanda!

My husband and I are both grad students who love coffee and board games! Our favorite date is sharing a latte and playing Dominion at a local coffee shop. I am extroverted and love serving others in fun ways. Over the few past years I've been learning about and growing in satisfaction and grace. I am a Christian and love talking about faith with others and learning about different views, beliefs, and cultures. I have been blessed to travel to several countries in my 24 years of life, my favorites being Japan and Germany!

I love simple and thoughtful things. ♥️ Looking forward to swapping with you!

I found the cute profile images on pinterest, they are not mine!

I would love to hear what you are currently reading and any suggestions! My goodreads account is linked at the top of my profile. ♥️

Response: I actually haven't been there! 😂 I received that blank card in a previous swap that was damaged when it arrived. So I thought it would be perfect for the swap haha. How fun to send a bit of NY to you tho!

I’m actually TERRIBLE at adding and rating my Goodreads. I usually use as a tool to see what others are reading but occasionally will update mine if I remember. Oy.

splendorpursuit on Jan 28, 2019:

Oh no! The link doesn’t work. The field to input your links are super specific if you want to try again. EVERYBODY goes through this when they first start here so no worries, I did too. ;)

splendorpursuit on Jan 28, 2019:

Um, you literally have my #2 dream job. I would looooove to spend my time researching and introducing kids and teens to excellent reading material. I’m totally going to stalk your Goodreads account!! :)

Ps. Thanks for hosting the dream zine swap. I’m just about to start sketching it out. Yay!

Newbie Profile Fav X-Mas Toy

Halo Amanda, greeting from Indonesia! My favourite toy that I received as a child was a 'kitchen set' toy. I really like it because I can play it with my friends. Have a merry christmas, and happy holiday!

ellecamino on Dec 11, 2018:

Greetings from Ottawa,

My favorite I received for Christmas one year was a Cabbage Patch Doll. I had wanted one for so long. My parents had bought me a knock-off for my birthday six months before but I wanted the real one. I got it. I still remember her name-Natalie.

Take care, Catina

PS-Very exciting that I am the first to post!!!!
