About Me

My name is Cynthia from the Pacific Northwest (Olympia, Washington). I am 43 years old and living with my husband and two young adult daughters, on a tiny hobby farm with 3 labs, 3 cats, 5 goats, and many chickens.

I also work part-time at a pack-and-ship shop. A dream job for a snail mail junkie!

I hope to gain inspiration to do more swaps crafts, along to share those crafts, swap postcards, pen pal letters, and more! !

Favorite Books

I absolutely love reading!! I am an avid reader, reading/listing to audiobooks up to 100 + a year.

I'll read just about any genre with the expectation of a few certain futuristic themes.

Favorite Crafts

I have been crafting my whole life and have yet to find a craft I haven't wanted to try.

Favorites are (the list is constantly growing)

  • Crocheting
  • Cross Stitching
  • Pocket Letters
  • ATC cards
  • Card Making
  • Collage Art Projects
  • Sewing Projects
  • Flipbooks


I DISLIKE crude, rude, or vulgarity. Otherwise, my likes list can be endless. I am not religious but not against receiving religious-themed crafts.

I genuinely love when others swap with their own hearts in mind.

Some of my favorite things are:

  • Hippos (My spirit Animal)
  • Vintage (early 20th century)
  • Postcards (I like them all)
  • Books and Bookmarks
  • Postages Stamps (Collect Them)
  • Birds
  • Animals
  • Farm Life
  • Photography
  • Gnomes, Trolls, Fairies and whimsical things (not childish)
  • Gardening (both vegetables and flowers) and Houseplants
  • Hiking and Outdoors
  • Nature, Trees, Mountains, Landscapes
  • Washi Tape and stickers!!
  • Stationary and Pens (I might be obsessed)

Favorite Movies

I'm a big Lord of the Rings/Hobbit and Star Wars fan. I like classic black-and-white movies, suspense/thriller (not horror) movies, comedies, military, and movies based on books—too many to list. I'm not too fond of rom-com movies.

Favorite Television

Game of Thrones/House of Dragons, Pride, and Prejudice (BBC version), Sherlock Holmes (BBC version), Derry Girls, Stranger Things, Perry Mason (both old and new series), Peaky Blinders, Golden Girls, Murder She Wrote, and Longmire (just to name a few)

I love watching TV shows based on books and documentaries (all kinds from crime to nature, but especially Ken Burns)
