About Me

I'm me. Writer, dog trainer, coffee drinker, snow angel, animal lover. I make a mean grilled cheese and I collect postcards from all over the world.

I am devoted to Swap-Bot so please send me a message before giving me a low rating. I would appreciate it.

My Pinterest

Things I like:

Coffee- Coffee makes my world go round. If you send me anything coffee related I'll love it. If you're sending me coffee I will drink anything but decaf, there is no point to having decaf. Ground, whole bean or K-cup Keurig are all coffee types I can use.

Postcards- All postcards. Any postcards. I love it when they have a quote on the back. I'm a member of Postcrossing.com and I love people picking out postcards for me.

Sea shells- They are one of the best small pleasures of life. One of my bathrooms is decorated with the sea shells I've picked up around the world.

Dogs- I'm a dog trainer and have two large dogs that love rubber toys, treats and swimming. I pretty much love dogs of all shapes and sizes and could talk about them all day. As a dog trainer, I prescribe to the positive reinforcement, science based, reward based mindset. Old school or traditional training has been debunked. I love Victoria Stilwell from It's Me or the Dog!

Writing- I'm a writer, deep down that's who I am. I collect journals to write in daily. Mostly I do creative writing, so if you send me writing prompts, including pictures, they will be used and loved. I also write letters to friends and would be open to pen pals. Always need stationary!

Winter- I just moved away from Colorado where we had lovely snow. Send me things that remind me of lovely snowy winters!

Fall- Okay so I also really love fall. I press fall leaves every year and I love Halloween. October is my favorite month.

Sewing- I sew little things out of felt for the kiddos in my family all the time. Felt, fabrics, ribbon, thread and yarn will be put to good use.

Clay- I make little things out of modeling clay. Prefer only oven bake clay.

Crafts- I am always trying new crafts. Wood burning is next!

Books- There is nothing like a good story. I am a huge Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings fan! Huge! Fantasy and fiction are what I enjoy most but I also like nonfiction if it is crime related.

True Crime- I have a small obsession with true crime shows and books. It's not creepy, I swear.

Stationary- As a letter writer and pen pal, I am always looking for stationary to use. For some reason, I am terrible at finding it myself so if you have any cute stationary laying around I'd love it!

Tattoos- I have 5 tattoos and I need more. Mostly I have small black and white ones so I always like artistic black and white designs.

Quotes- I collect inspirational quotes and like to pass them on as well. One of my favorites at the moment is: "The earth has music for those who listen." -Shakespeare

Poetry and Shakespeare- I have an English Literature degree so I love poetry and Shakespeare. Walt Whitman is my favorite poet but Emily Dickinson and e.e. cummings are also wonderful.

Literature- I did my thesis on Gothic Literature like Edgar Allen Poe, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Oscar Wilde. I'll throw Robert Frost in there too.

Outdoors- I grew up in Colorado so I love the great outdoors. I am huge into camping and hiking. My husband and I recently got dirt bikes for our first anniversary so we're having a lot of fun with that.

Colorado- I was born and raised in Colorado, my beloved Colorado. I recently moved to North Carolina with my husband and I miss Colorado and my mountains. If you send me anything Colorado or mountain related I will love it.

Music- I'm not huge into music but I like country and oldies.

TV- Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Walking Dead, Gilmore GIrls

Things I don't like:

-Old school dog training stuff like Cesar Millan

-Hello Kitty or anything overly cartoonish and cutesy

-Religious themes

-advertisements

-Tea (sorry, coffee girl!)

Comment: Wowie! What a cool envelope full of all sorts of goodies -- Thanks so much ! PS: Just a heads up -- There was postage due -- Just remember - if the envie is over 1/4 in., or other "abnormalities" -- it's going to cost a bunch more postage. Don't worry - I covered it - But, just be advised, for next time. Thanks again for the swap!

Comment: I got this box of postcards. Most of them are really great, but I was also confused by the ceiling corner. I have yet to use that one.
