About Me

I'm married and have 2 cats. I'm a teacher librarian. I love to travel.

Please! If you don't receive a swap from me, let me know and I will be happy to re-send. I have found that the USPS is unreliable. They lose mail often, and they even returned to me the entire top inch of an envelope I sent, the rest of which was just lost due to their machine tearing it up.

If you receive something from me with postage due, please tell me and I will reimburse you for it.

Please rate me--I want to know that you received my swap because I DO NOT flake!

Likes / Dislikes

I don't expect to receive extras in my swaps--I rate and give hearts based on the swap itself.

While I like anything that a person is nice enough to send me, I don't particularly care for cartoon-themed items or country/western items.

And please, no friendship books/sheets, decos, etc.--I don't swap those.

My favorite color is red, but I like all colors.

Following are some particular likes:

notecards, handmade or store-bought

stationery, handmade or store-bought

washi tape--any design, any size

ribbon, lace, fibers--any length

Hobbies

I'm not an artist by any means, but I love to make greeting cards and other paper crafts like bookmarks. Pinterest has provided me with much inspiration! Swap-bot introduced me to ATCs, inchies/twinchies, handmade postcards, flip books, and pocket letters.

I also love to cross-stitch--I guess because I can't draw pretty pictures, I get some satisfaction out of stitching them.

I love sending and receiving mail, so I have several penapls.

Interests

Currently Reading: Babel by R. F. Kuang Currently Listening; The Book of Longings by Sue Monk Kidd

I love reading. Stephen King is a long-time favorite author, but I like most genres of fiction. Romance and westerns are my least favorite. I don't care for most nonfiction, especially self-help and professional. I'm in a book club that meets once a month.

Latest movie watched: Wakanda Forever

Currently streaming: Sweet Tooth

I watch A LOT of TV! Too much, probably, but I enjoy it. I used to go to the cinema several times a month--there's just something I love about the dark theater, the loud audio, the big screen, oh, and the popcorn! Now I just stream movies and shows.

I used to be more interested in music than I am now, but I do like listening to it in the car and when I clean house or read. Some of my favorite artists are Alanis Morissette, Muse, Of Monsters and Men, and Mumford and Sons. I don't care for country music or rap.

Response: Thanks for the rating! I should've checked here first before I sent you the message just now to see if you wanted me to resend! I didn't get an email telling me I'd been rated like I usually do. Weird. I'm glad it arrived. Thanks for the heart!

Haiku For You swap

Hello, Anita! This is my very first haiku, hope you like it.

Haiku name: Dew Drops

Beads of water race

To the tip of leaves and stop

For a while, then drop.

I love your job title! Combines two of the professions I admire. Have a nice day.

-Hilori :)
