About Me

UPDATE Iโ€™m moving!! Effective 15 June I will be at a new address. Please message me for the address if you need it. Otherwise, I wonโ€™t be participating in any new swaps until I get completely settled into the new house. Thank you!!!

๐Ÿ’ ๐ŸŒธ ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโœ’๏ธ ๐Ÿ’ ๐ŸŒธ ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโœ’๏ธ ๐Ÿ’ ๐ŸŒธ ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป โœ’๏ธ ๐Ÿ’ ๐ŸŒธ ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป

Hello! I work in cyber/IT communications ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป. I have two awesome kids and am married. I picked the name CherryBlossomLady because I live on the Potomac River which is lined with cherry blossom trees. ๐ŸŒธWashington D.C. is the national Capitol of the USA ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ and brimming with wonderful museums, galleries and theater opportunities. I love going out to see ANYTHING creative on the stage. Live music๐ŸŽถ, plays and opera, and dance ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป fill me with joy!

I love to craft, read ๐Ÿ“–, play the ๐ŸŽน piano, ๐ŸŽค sing... I am really drawn to random, bohemian eclectic-ness that just sort of "works" once it is all blended together with embellishments and sentiments. I am a total museum and art ๐Ÿ–ผ gallery junkie. I love to travel ๐Ÿงณ and take family vacations.

Pen paling and scrapbooking are two of my favorite artsy hobbies. I love chocolate, and caramels and Carmel corn... I have a baaaad sweet tooth!!!

I love chatty, artsy letters, where the sender includes a few things to share with the receiver that were used in the letter. The kind of letters you have to sit down with a cup of tea โ˜•๏ธ at the table to really enjoy, and are worth reading several times to make sure you haven't missed anything... ahhhh. Bliss. ๐Ÿฅฐ

I really love tea- interesting flavors, oolong, asam, fruity herbals, black, red, green, white, you name it. Fortnum & Mason, Kusmi, Davidโ€™s Tea and Tea Forte are some of my faves. I have all kinds though. But I really don't appreciate receiving wrinkled, old, regifted tea bags. We Must Respect the Tea! Please only share teas with me that are new, well packaged, and that you love too.

I really, really love Jesus. I have totally given my heart to Christ, and I want my life and interaction with others to be an extension of Our Father's inexhaustible Love and Mercy for all of us. I am trying to be a true, faithful, orthodox Catholic, and I love to share the Holy Rosary and the Veil with friends. I am not perfect, and I make (a lot of) mistakes, but I am trying to meet the challenges of everyday life with honor and integrity, and be what He has called me to be.

Favorite Music

I love all music ๐ŸŽถ but if it has lyrics that are explicit, then it is a no for me... jazz, orchestras, symphony, opera, a little pop, some classic rock, folk, christian pop, bluegrass, anything with great harmonies... :) I like For King and Country, Hozier, Sara Barielles, IL Volo, Andrea Bocelli, LP, Borns, Third Story โ€” just to give you a feeling for my musical tastes. I Love receiving playlists in happy mail if you are also into these genres. I WILL listen and I Will reply back if the tunes are awesome. ๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽถ๐Ÿ’•โค๏ธ๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽถ

Favorite Movies

Any movie ๐ŸŽฅ that inspires, makes me believe in love, kindness, beauty, good humansโ€” that is my kind of movie ๐Ÿฟ. I also like action, comedies, drama, and mystery, but nothing too scary, no blood and gore, and no demons please. Aaaaas yoooooouuuu wiiiiiisshhhh!!! I love getting movie and binge worthy tv show recommendations in letters and happy mail, just include a short blip on WHYYYYYY. Thank you!

๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ฐ๐Ÿผ+ ๐Ÿดโ€โ˜ ๏ธ ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŒพ = true ๐Ÿ’•love

Likes and Dislikes

Hand made crafts take A LOT OF TIME to make, so I always appreciate the effort. Anything I can't use, I will give away. That said, I appreciate people looking at my profile when selecting goodies.

I prefer private group swaps and one on one swaps, so message me if you are interested. Blank envelopes are a bit depressing after having so many years of loyal pen pals and fun mail art swappers-- so at LEAST throw some washi or stickers on there please!

๐Ÿ›‘ Dislikes: Anything that smells of cigarette smoke, has pet hair on it, is kind of dirty, anything Satanic, Voo-doo, witchy, gratuitous gore, hyper sexualized anything, purposefully anti-Christian or anti-Life, etc. PLEASE NO REGIFTED TEA BAGS. Only fresh new tea bags. I won't be able to use these things, so please donโ€™t include them in your swap with me. Thank you!!! โ˜บ๏ธ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒˆ

Wishlist

Hand made embellishments and flat multi-matted sentiments and die cuts are something I adore receiving. Nice, unique, stickers for crafting are loved, but reward stickers, not so much. Fancy dollar tree stickers are good so long as they don't necessarily LOOK like dollar tree stickers (if you know what I mean).

Any color of metallic Washi tape especial gold or sparkly

BuJo-ing stuff

Any wax seals and any color of sealing wax chips

Kusmi Tea and Fortnum & Mason Tea

I'm a sucker for...

BUJO or bullet journaling - LOVE IT!!

Tea time & Victorian flowers๐Ÿ’

The lives of the Saints ๐Ÿ˜‡

Beautiful images of the Virgin Mary (Jesus loved His mom and so do I. ๐ŸŒน)

Sacred โค๏ธ Heart of Jesus

Rosaries- handmade or vintage/unique

Typewriters & Poetry ๐Ÿ–‹

Birds & Butterflies ๐Ÿฆ‹ (Vintage or Victorian) Bumble bees or Queen Bee ๐Ÿ‘‘ ๐Ÿ

Lavender (plant and scent) and Cherry Blossoms

William Morris patterns

Botanicals and apothecary ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ’๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ€

Watercolor images

Lace & small doilies (white or any color! Yes please!)

Metallic or floral patterned washi

Tea. Tea. Tea. โ˜•๏ธ Anything tea and tea time/high tea related. Cadbury chocolates. Biscuits/cookies.

Anything mail related ๐Ÿ’Œ๐Ÿ“ซ๐Ÿ“ especially unique stationary sets and notecard sets Or snail mail themed/tea themed stamps/stickers. I do tend to write long letters so if you send/share stationary, I would be over the moon with appreciation if you sent 3-4 sheets of stationary with an Envie. No worries if you canโ€™t!! Just sayinโ€™!!! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

About my hosted swaps

John 13:34-35
34. "I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you also should love one another. 35. This is how all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.

MY WISH is that we could all go out of our way to make each other feel loved, included, and appreciated, regardless of what we GET from one another.
