About Me

I'm the mother of five grown children, with two still living at home; and the grandmother of four (with one on the way!). We are a close family and enjoy movies, TV, museums, parks, festivals, family game nights, and just hanging out together.

10-26-2021 I've been back to work at my desk job for a few months now. Still also working at the grocery store on weekends. I enjoy both of my jobs but I sometimes go several weeks (or more!) without a day off. Can't complain about the extra money though, it is really helping me get caught up on some bills.


I enjoy swapping postcards. Hand made or store bought, postcards bring a little bit of cheer to an ordinary day. I have a slight preference for receiving them naked and written on unless it's a swap for adding to my stash.

Zazzle cards (or the like) are fine with me. I've found the quality to be good on the ones I've seen, I don't really understand why some people don't like them.

My favorite kind of postcards are:

  • colorful
  • scenes from nature
  • arty
  • from an interesting place
  • whimsical
  • positive or uplifting

I especially like receiving postcards that include a fun note or quote or joke on the back, and tell me a little something about the person who sent it.

Other swaps

In addition to swapping postcards I've also particpated in some simple flat envelope swaps. I think it's fun to share stickers, extra notecards, and washi samples. (I do love me some washi tape!) I can sometimes use other kinds of paper ephemera also. I'm not really picky about what I receive, if I can't use it I will usually just pass it on in the next swap.

I'm enjoying the tea swaps I've joined. I started out drinking mainly Chai tea but, through the swaps, I have been introduced to a wide variety of teas and so far I love them all! So feel free to send all kinds, I'm willing to try anything.

I especially love decorating the envelopes that I send stuff in and I really enjoy getting decorated envelopes in my mail box. Mail Art is the best!

Favorite Crafts

I like paper crafts mostly. Acrylic paints. Brush pens and gel pens and markers (oh my!). Collage. Even watercolors, although I just play around. I have a couple of art journals and/or smash books - I'm not really sure what to call them. I really enjoy making postcards and greeting cards to send to my family and friends. I try to recycle or upcycle whenever I can.


I love pretty / beautiful things - flowers and gardens of all kinds; fun patterns and prints; sunrises and sunsets; rainbows; the moon, stars, and the night sky; natural scenic wonders.

My favorite color is aqua blue or turquoise. I also like pink and red.

I like animals... especially cats and birds... especially owls! Other favorite animals are woodland creatures (foxes, deer, rabbits, etc.) songbirds (chickadees, cardinals, wrens), frogs, lizards, and garden insects.

Some other things I enjoy: Baseball (big Astros fan here!); bird watching and nature walks; Chococat and Keroppi (Sanrio); Spring and Fall; Christmas; Ancient / Classical Greece; Wine, Margaritas, Craft Beers; Mexican Food; Street Art; Coffee and quaint coffee shops; Books, especially sci-fi and fantasy, Monty Python, MST3K, geocaching.

Other favorites

Books / authors - JRR Tolkien; Mary Renault; Rosemary Sutcliff; Steven Brust; Dave Duncan; Ann Leckie; Dave Hutchinson (my tastes run to sci-fi / fantasy)

Movies / TV - Star Wars; Star Trek; Back to the Future; Ghostbusters; White Christmas; Indiana Jones; Guardians of the Galaxy; My Neighbor Totoro; Fantastic Mr. Fox; Princess Bride; The Birdcage; Knives Out; The Good Place; The Big Bang Theory; Brooklyn Nine Nine; The Mandalorian; Parks and Rec, Ted Lasso, Ghosts, Only Murders in the Building (I seem to prefer action / adventure / funny / nerdy stuff!)

Music - Ricky Montgomery; Radiohead; Saint Motel; Weezer; Muse; Metric; The Dear Hunter; Panic at the Disco; Wolf Alice; Grouplove; Mother Mother; Amanda Palmer; Beach House; AFI; The Killers; Tame Impala (mostly Alternative)
