About Me

Member of Letter Writers Alliance

Hello Everyone! I am back doing a bit of swapping. It is now the end of September of 2019. I have to admit that i had to put my cat Baba down and have not gotten around to revising my profile at the bottom. I have decided for now to just let the spirit of Baba be here in my profile as she did very much enjoy seeing the mail and sniffing it! She liked to meow and let me know she approved the wonderful swaps that people sent to me over the years. So many mentioned her in their swaps to me. She was really my little Egyptian Priestess Princess and i miss her presence. She is kept in my heart and when i am still i can feel here there. For the love we share is never lost, it is kept in the hearts of others. As she would meow meaning at times Carry On!

Hello there! My first name is Kyra and i will be happy to be your swap partner for this swap! I’m looking forward to swapping with YOU! That being said the 2018 year has been a busy one!

Live in a small town outside of the greater Portland area with mileage into Portland being about 30 miles! Most people around this area are into some kind of food production here, We have lots of small farms that lie outside of the city where people are returning to have small working places where people can make a living with some of the great opportunities that this area can offer.

WHAT MAKES MY HEART SING! Being creative has always been an interesting journey and challenge. One has to know themselves pretty well. Then to be open enough to take on something like aswap in order to really see how much someone has changed! So here i am! Attempting to work on the art that wants to be expressed thru this body-mind mechanism. So this is what i am opening to! It’s a process and a journey!

SWAPPING I’m pretty open as far as what i like in swapping. I dont have a long laundry list of things that i have to have etc. i love art postcards and have my favorite artists. Also love beautiful postcards of nature and animals. Love almost all postcards really. I mean who doesnt love a good postcard of their city? You know? If you would like it then i would probably like it. Love funny PCs too. We can all laugh more than we probably do today with our world situation! So bring on the laughs! Laughter and lightness is welcome here. If you love to create and it calls to send me something feel free to create something for me. I would appreciate anything you want to send. If you wonder what to send me and i have not made a long list i will leave it up to your decision and i trust that. We are all kind here and that has value in my world. Don’t worry about it. Send whatever you feel in your heart! Thank you!

TEAS I enjoy most teas and if I don't, I pass them along. The more unusual the tea, the more I find interesting. Any tea is fine with me so dont feel you have to send me something unusual. If you came to my house I would serve something you like. I’ve been graced with lots of interesting teas. So thank you to the people who have sent me some unusual teas! Have really enjoyed seeing the differences and the varieties and nothing amazes me more than the varieties of TEA! With all that being said lets just sit down to a good cup of No 10 blend by Murchies in Canada. It is a delicious beautiful cup of tea. I just happen to have some loose tea in the cupboard. However, i will always send packaged tea bags in swaps!

REMBERING WHAT IT IS ABOUT FOR ME Just remember we are all human here. So take a risk and get out of your comfort zone and write something daring to me. Write about your life and tell me something that is bothering you. I can hold the space for you. I think it is beautiful to be able to share yourself because we are all choosing to swap. It is really touching to have someone write something deeper than the day was sunny and really touch the human spirit that we all share. Just take a deep breath and write to another human being taking a risk. It’s ok to take risks they lead to some beautiful experiences......

Remember to rate if you can remember. We forget and in our busy lives we keep things around. Just let someone know that you received their note PC or swap when you get it. It is a very kind and respectful thing to do. Thank you !

CATS!!

Last but not least i choose to live with 2 cats named Baba and Claire. Am their caregiver and family. Anyone who has ever been with cats know that one doesn't own a cat. The best we can do is be in relationship with cats. Baba and Claire were both born in the wild. They have taught me so much, in that they are their own free spirit! Feed hummingbirds too! FInd feeding the birds to be a real gift in my life. It is such a wonderful way to relax and i can be with the birds for hours. They buzz around me and let me come close while they feed and go here and there. Both the birds and cats have taught me to live a less stressed life! But then i am an avid animal lover!

CAT APPROVED

Everything coming into my house gets the stamp of approval of Baba! She has to see and sniff every swap! sometimes she gives a big meow when the mail comes!

WRITING and OTHER THINGS

Am a closet writer. What i have found out since coming on Swap Bot is that i have something to share and say. It keeps oozing out in the pcs and in the art swaps that i keep signing up for. Stories, quirky facts, drawings, artwork and information comes floating to the surface of the mind and i want to immediately get it down. If you consider yourself a writer then you understand one has to GET IT DOWN NOW!

Now lets get down to swapping and having fun doing our thing! Wont you be my snail mail neighbor? Hehehehe!

Comment: Thank you for your lovely letter and tea. Im sorry its been a tough one. Youve had a garden for 5 years? Im just thinking about starting one but seems to be so overwhelming. I saw a vid where the gal shows how to grow lettuce right in the soil bag. lolololol Im gonna try that one. lolol
Response: Well, we cannot always have an easy year. We are to grow you know thru our difficulties and well that has been how it goes......Yes, ive learned to grow food now for 5 years and it is a challenge to learn to work with the temperatures. I imagine it would be challenging to create food where you live Kitty! Yes, try growing lettuce in a soil bag why not! :)

Comment: Thank you for the cute Postcard. Danke! Your handwriting is great, liked your story. We had a golden cat like that during a holiday in Sweden. She woke us every morning at seven and then brought two more cats from that little town to be fed during our stay.

Comment: Thank you Kyra for your acrylics on cardboard artwork. Definitely bluesy blues 🙂 the the flashes of orange and red add pizzazz. I’ve never worked with gesso before. It does add an interesting dimension.

Comment: OMG I believe that among the hundreds of postcards I've received in the less-than-one-year I've been with SwapBot (and SendSomething and Postcard United) that this is THE most meaningful postcard I've ever received? Wow. You sound like the kind of person I'd love having long conversations with while drinking tea. I mean, I don't like tea, but I'm just feeling like that's probably your vibe! I love Rumi, and always love it when I run into someone else quoting him! Also love the pic, well, not - I mean, I like your interpretation of it, and I also guarantee you that I live completely in opposition to this kind of thing in that I smile at everyone, say hi to all, and start up conversations with anybody I'm near unless they are SUPER obviously not interested. But yeah, accurate then and still now, in general. Also, great prompt, and one I've been struggling with for quite some time now. If you PM me your address, if you like, I'll send you a letter and let you know what i've been thinking. (If not,no prob, I'll just keep working on it in my journal!) Have a lovely day!
Response: Hi Jennifer! I am sorry i am seeing this so late. Ive not looked at my ratings for awhile now. Will send you a pm now and YES you can write me and share with me what is going on in your world! I got your message loud and clear it and it was so beautiful to read!

Comment: Thanks For the Great Antique Book Postcard. Loved the image. You made a most interesting flipside with the embellishments and the writing in the round and your own tiny drawings and the penmanship.Thanks for making this swap great !
Response: So happy you enjoyed the postcard! Yes, somehow what ever comes thru in the moment seems to work. I love doodling and writing something thoughtful or entertaining for someone else. So glad you enjoyed it and all the little details on the back.
