About Me

Hello everyone! I enjoy sending and receiving happy snail mail. I live in North Carolina and am a Wisconsin transplant. I have no human babies, just one elderly fur-baby - Mr. Carter the Cat a/k/a Grandpa Kitty, who is now legal drinking age - 21 ha ha!. Since quarantine, I've been adopted by a stray cat, she is all black with green eyes. I've named her Lizzie because she's a little lizard hunter. She stops by several times per day for breakfast, snacks, and sometimes dinner. I recently bought her an outdoor "cottage" to help protect her from the cold and wind, she has not taken to it yet, so we will see if she actually uses it. I would love to bring her indoors, however Grandpa Kitty will not allow me to - he still gets agitated whenever Lizzie or any other kitty visitors come calling. Ok, so I recently learned that Lizzie is actually owned by a neighbor, and his given name is Pippin!!

I am heartbroken, yesterday, Dec. 20, 2021 I had to say good-bye to my precious fur-baby of 21 years. He had a very long and spoiled life, but I miss him so much, the house is so empty without him. The first day I brought him home, he clawed his way up the bed, laid down on my chest and purred away. He would "tuck me in" every night, and wake me up every morning; even yesteday, despite being so ill. He even saved me from missing a 7:00 AM flight a few years ago by waking me up after I slept through two alarms. Please give your fur-babies an extra squeeze for me.

I mainly like to do postcard, note card, and letter swaps. Please do not feel it is necessary to send any extras items to earn a heart. I already have way, way too much in my inventory and I'm trying to minimize!

Favorite Books

I enjoy most books, historical fiction, travel memoirs, and biographies. I will read just about anything, there have been maybe two or three books I started but did not finish because I did not like them.

Favorite Crafts

I started making cards a few of years ago; and have discovered that I do not have as much time for it as I thought I would. I would also like to learn how to knit or crochet, but oh where to find the time!

Hobbies

Postcrossing is my version of armchair traveling! I love to travel, and Postcrossing helps with the travel bug. I am currently in the initial stages of planning my next trip which will be either Morocco or walking the Camino de Santiago - hopefully in September 2021. So any recommendations or suggestions would be appreciated. Well, seems as if any international travel for me is out until 2022!

Walking / hiking and generally being outdoors, but there is nothing about camping that I enjoy - it's too much work to be enjoyable.

Favorite Television

I'm not much of a TV or movie watcher, but will occasionally will subscribe to Netflix when new seasons of The Crown, Grace & Frankie, Messiah, Emily in Paris, Bridgerton and Sweet Tooth become available.

Likes

I love all things stationery (paper, notecards, journals, stickers, washi tape & gel pens);

All things pineapple and lemon;

I have become obsessed with the 'hello' and 'choose joy' motifs;

I'm a Francophile so that includes anything French related (Eiffel Tower, macaroons, lavender, berets, etc.);

Travel themed stickers and washi tape;

Journal prompts;

Quotes;

Religious items: I am a Christian and I enjoy learning about the various religions of the world. Feel free to send something related to your faith for learning purposes.

Butterflies;

Pinwheels;

Flowers: poinsettias, magnolias, peonies and geraniums

Animals: Cats, Hedgehogs, Llamas, Otters, Owls, Lambs/Sheep and Giraffes (adult appropriate ones are a challenge to find); and

Vespa / scooter - I have always wanted one, hopefully someday I'll own one.

Dislikes

Glitter - it usually ends up all over the house and my face!

Hello Kitty - yes, I'm a cat person, but I simply do not appreciate Hello Kitty items.

Disney or any other childish styles;

Cosmetics, bath and body products - I love them, but I now have allergies to a multitude of the ingredients :(

Teas

I Iike earl grey tea, but my favorites are mint, and chai. I like trying different flavors, so feel free to send others you think I may like.

Comment: Hi Candace! Love your nc - the giraffes are soooo cool! I am sorry your class was cancelled on Saturday but I have heard in the south that they do not have the equipment to clear the roads, so maybe safe than sorry? It has to be frustrating though, I am sure! Sounds like you still had a lovely day and how wonderful that someone paid the bill when you were out with your friends! I love hearing stuff like that! How did the coat closet clear out go? I do hope nothing feel on your head - no one needs that! LOL! All the best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)

Comment: Thanks for the cute giraffe notecard. New Year's Eve was spent with my boyfriend. He and I made snack type foods, watched football, and then the ball drop. The weather is crazy here as well. Thanks for the washi tape.
