About Me

I am sure everyone is aware of the current state of the postal service and the world in general. Postal workers are doing their best to keep up with the massive influx of mail that's being sent on a daily basis. I know I have sent more mail in the last 6 months than probably the entire last six years. That said, I send my swaps typically within 1-2 days of partners being assigned. Once it is out of my hands, I cannot do anything about how fast or slow it gets somewhere. I take that into consideration when I rate people, and I hope you are doing the same. I also typically rate same day that I get a swap. I will message you if I haven't received a swap from you within 3 weeks. I ask you do the same.

Married mom of a 8 years old who has ASD and epilepsy. I volunteer for several organizations in my community that deal with issues that I am passionate about (kids, military families, voting). I am a Feminist, anti-racist, believe that no one should go hungry (especially kids), quality education is a right, affordable healthcare is essential, and I am not interested in discussing religion or politics if your views are not aligned with my own.

I love getting and sending mail. I send a lot of mail, but I am also open to new penpals/correspondence.

I am artsy, love to thrift, reading (mostly contemporary fiction, YA, middle grade, classics-- not into horror, gore), love Harry Potter (Slytherclaw), Hello Kitty, washi tape, stickers, 80s/90s/00s teen movies, decals, pens, stationary (note cards, postcards, letter sets), miniature things, pens (especially 0.3 and 0.4), postcards...

Purple is my favorite color. Love jewel tones and metallic colors as well. I don't really like pastels or neon colors. Glitter is not cool unless it is very contained or stuck down. I am very drawn to patterns.

Halloween is my favorite. No, seriously, I LOVE Halloween.

Love tea (white. green, black, citrus, spiced, herbal, fruit etc). No mint or mixed berry (see allergies and sensitivities). Don't drink coffee.

It's rarely a good idea to send chocolate to GA, because it is rarely cool enough that it won't melt. I enjoy citrus scents and flavors.

If it is something that you wouldn't want to receive, don't send it to someone else. I am thankful for anything I get, but if it's not something that is my taste, I will probably regift it.

Favorite Books

One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez;

Commonwealth by Ann Patchett;

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman;

Gross Pointe Blank by Nick Hornby

I read a lot of kids books with my son. We have really enjoyed Last Kids on Earth, the Superfudge books, Goosebumps, and the Wayside School series.

Favorite Crafts

Upcycling; Vinyl decals; t-shirt design; key chains; creating sticker sheets; bookmarks; home decor

Allergies & Sensitivies

I suffer from migraines, and scent is a big trigger for me. Cigarette smoke, incense, chemical smelling candles, dryer sheets (scents not made naturally), Juicy Fruit and pink bubblegum.

I am allergic to cats, raspberries, and blackberries. If it says mixed berries, it is probably a no go.

Comment: Thanks for the great postcards and the bird cards. I like owels. In the fall we can hear them calling back and forth. My family and I loved the Harry Potter movies so was thrilled to get that postcard. My husband and I really like Monet paintings and have several prints of his paintings hanging in our home. We have never seen the one on the postcard you sent. It’s beautiful.
