Artist/Designer in Southern Oregon. I have been a snail mail enthusiast for a long time and have had pen pals for 15+ years (since I was like 10 years old). I LOVE snail mail art and decorated envelopes!

I am 30 and happily married for 2 years now. (Currently no children or pets. Just a house full of my hubby's tools and my craft supplies.) My husband and I met at a church social dance. I was studying Argentine Tango at the time and he was taking Ballroom dancing. So we were an instant hit and spent a lot of time dancing while we were first dating. (Currently not doing much dancing, because my husband is working a lot)
My husband owns a Harley and loves riding. So we go on rides sometimes in the summer. His dad owns a motorcycle repair shop, so he grew up around motorcycles and it's definitely a shared family passion.
My sister is a huge theater nerd and talked me into auditioning for one of her plays. So in September (2018) I played Miss Bingley in Jane Austen's classic "Pride and Prejudice." A lot of great memories and I'm glad I did it, but won't be doing any more plays for the time being as they are a HUGE time commitment.
I like having random adventures and trying new things, so it's not hard to talk me into some fun new activity. My best friend and I used to do a lot of stuff together (back when we were single), from ziplining to Disneyland, festivals, Rennaissance Faires, etc.
I play several instruments (harp, piano, guitar, pennywhistle) but currently not doing much practicing, because I am focusing on art. I work a side job, face painting, which is super fun. Love working with the kids and making them smile!
Update: (October 2018 ). Due to finances I won't be participating in many swaps for a while. My husband was in between jobs for a little bit and although he has started working again, it put us back financially and we are really tight at the moment. Also my car needs a transmission rebuild and it's parked until we can save enough to fix it.
Update: (November 2018) Hubby and I are both working 3 jobs. I've got my day job and the face painting gigs, and just picked up some extra work waitressing in the evenings. So, super busy, but getting financially caught up. My car is in the shop now (thankfully) getting fixed.
I love Celtic Music, a little bit of Jazz/Blues, some folk music and bluegrass, Disney songs, musicals and broadway showtunes, and a selection of pop.
