About Me

My name is Marie. I live in northwest Wisconsin with my husband Eric and my furbaby R.E.O. I'm currently finishing my bachelors in Art History. I hope to have a career in museum work soon.

I just started a YouTube channel about postal mail. If you are postal obsessed like me, you may be interested in my videos. Visit me at: Marie Loves Mail

I can not stress enough that I have NO intention of flaking. If you have not received something PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me know PRIOR to giving me a bad rating so I can mend it and send a resend if necessary or look up the tracking number if its a larger package.

Extras: As much as I love extras, I have so much stuff it's insane. If you could avoid sending extras, I'd actually appreciate it as I'm trying to use up what I have right now.


I've been seeing this cool ABC's of likes and I decided to try it. It seems fun so here it goes:

A-Anime, Absolute Boyfriend
B-Black Butler, Black Mirror
C-Coffee, coffee mugs, Ceres:Celestrial Legend, Christian related, cupcakes, cateye glasses
D-Dogs, Deco books (I'm ok with homers), Dark Crystal, Downton Abbey
E-Enamel pins,
F-Foreign Coins, Fruits Basket, Feminism
G-gnomes/gnome village stuff, glitter
H-Hello Kitty, Hummingmint, Harujuku
I-Ice Cream
J-Japanese culture, Judy Chicago (The Dinner Party)
K-Kawaii, Kitchy things, Keri Smith
L-Liquid eyeliner, lipstick, lolita
M-Mail and mail related stuff, mint green, mint flavor, Merlin (BBC), The Magicians (SyFy)
N- nodda for letter N
O-Once Upon a Time
P-Passion Planner, pink, pandas, postcards, Pyrex, Pumpkin spice
Q-Quilting, Queen Elizabeth II
R-Rainbows, Rockabilly/retro, rubber duckies, Rosario Vampire,
S-Sherlock (BBC), Socks, snowflakes
T-Tea (my favorites are Earl Gray and Mint), tea cups, teapots, typewriters
U-Unicorns, upcycling
V-Vampire Knight, vintage clothes and brooches, Van Gogh
W-Watermelons, washi tape,
Z- ziltch for letter z

Favorite Crafts

I love to scrapbook and make cards. That eventually turned into a love of making ATCs and Deco books as well. I don't consider myself "good" at any of those things but I sure love it!

I am an unashamed recycler and regifter. If I get something in a swap I can't use I'm going to pass it on because I know someone else can use it (other than throwing it away.) I am also an avid recycler. I love to make things out of something others would throw away. I reuse all the packaging I receive. Please don't be offended if I recycle something.


I use a Compact Passion Planner for my planner because I need to run my life on half hour increments. I highly recommend a Passion Planner for busy people.


While I appreciate any and all extras, please don't send me list pad sheets or napkins. I have so many and I really just don't know what to do with them all since I really don't use them.

I'm not a Disney kind of gal. Sorry.

I HATE OWLS...an owl tried to eat my/parents dog once. He swooped in for the kill and thank God missed. Since then owls and I have not gotten along.

The mustache craze as well is over done. I understand the awesomeness of the original cause in which I support, however the commercialism of putting a mustache on everything to me is over rated and over done. No thanks please.

Food Disclaimer

I am on a special diet now and I can't eat most commercial treats. All food that gets sent to me will end up getting tossed so save your money and don't send it to me. I would feel so bad tossing your items. If it's part of a swap that you include a food item, don't worry about the food item. I won't rate down if its not included I promise. No need to substitute for it either I promise.

If you still feel the need to send me food, I can have sugar free gum, sugar free jello and of course coffee/tea.

Comment: I love how you discovered this campaign through a "free cards" thread! I agree with the magic of a physical written message. I've been a letter writer since very early days.
Comment: Hello again! I did hear that your area got another blizzard - I had one over to send me a jar of snow (I declined) then mother nature sent us a storm! We got 36 hours of snow, rain, slush, freezing rain, & more snow! Oh, and wind. :/ hope you were able to dig out ok. Guess iI you have accepted the jar of snow - maybe we could have avoided all that! Ha!

Comment: Cool postcard! Thanks and did not know Duluth was the zenith city! happy mails
Comment: It still amazes me that it is snowing in parts of America. It is 8:45 pm and 74 degrees here in Florida - Crazy! No, I don't garden at all. I've never been much for that kind of thing, but I hope you get a chance to do it soon.

Comment: Good to hear from you :) And you added your letter number! :)
heatherknits rated for Write On: Letter swap #1 Int'l on Apr 10, 2018
Comment: Thanks for your newsy letter! I wish you luck with the Write On party - sounds awesome, and wish I could go! I hope you don't feel like ordering the pack was a waste. Their stuff is so cute I considered ordering some myself. I held back, and have since bought cards and stationery at Michaels, which is sort of unlike me, but I'm a sucker for a sale and cute motifs! It is not spring here yet - we had some snow melting weather and then more snow last Friday. I am considering gardening for the first time, but my upcoming travel schedule may make it difficult. Good luck with your zucchini decision!!!
