About Me

Hey!! I'm Kaleena. I'm in my mid 30's and live in the Atlanta GA area with my family. I'm married to my husband, Billy and we have two girls (8 and 5). I'm a working mom in the insurance industry, but have a culinary arts degree (what a combo, right?). I love all things crafting, though I can be described as a jack of all trades and master of none. I love to junk journal, paint, draw, paper craft and try new mediums, but I'm an amateur at all of these things at best. One of the highlights of my day is going to get the mail (even if it is all bills). I would love to start getting some happy mail and send some out to make someone else's day!!

Hobbies: Does drinking coffee count? How about sarcasm? :) Working out, reading young adult fiction, any outdoor adventures (waterfalls, zip lining, rock climbing, etc), logic puzzles, the Bible and eating good food. I also enjoy MCU, Steelers football, Braves baseball, cheesy jokes, comics, puns, sushi and chocolate.

Favorite Crafts

I love paper, colors, patterns and just craft supplies in general. All the cool patterned paper now is SO addictive!! I need a hobby like this to use some of the great paper I have. I've recently gotten into making junk journals. These are very satisfying and I make them for my kids so their artwork isn't all over the house!! I also love origami and other random odds and ends. If you find some weird playing card, foreign currency or a cool hobnob that will fit in my junk journal, I'd love to stick it in there. If there's a story that goes with it, even better!!

I'm just starting out in this penpaling hobby so I would love supplies I could use to make or send letters. Stationary, envelopes, stickers, washi, stamps, tags, cut outs, whatever is great!! I'm not artistic enough to make ATC's, but I would love to receive them.

Likes/Dislikes

Likes - just to give you some ideas, but I'm open to whatever you would like to send.

Coffee, cacti, llamas, woodland creatures, owls, mushrooms, Harry Potter, Totoro, bright colors (favorites are greens and blues), hiking/outdoors/camping, adventures, hot air balloons, lanterns, moon/space, keys, umbrellas, chocolate.

Dislikes

Loose glitter, kid reward stickers. Not a fan of Hello Kitty and I'm not really a cat person, but am ok with it if that's your favorite. Pink is my least favorite color and I'm not girly. I'm also not a planner person. I wish I were that organized, but I'm just not. Please don't send me things that are offensive.

I'm not picky. I like to see different styles that people have and enjoy crafting in. If you like vintage or Halloween, I'd love to experience your art. I am good with Christian themed mail but I will respect your wishes if you do not want to receive those.

I'm a letter writer and an envelope decorator. That's my jam! If I send you a letter please don't feel like you need to respond, but if you would like to I would love to get some regular penpals.

Favorites

Movies: Penelope, Gone in 60 Seconds, Italian Job, the Mission Impossibles, anything MCU, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Fast and Furious movies, How to Lose a Guy in 10 days, Inception, A Few Good Men, 10 Things I Hate About You. I like action, movies with a twist and chick flicks. The list could go on, but that's a good start.

Music: Bruno Mars, Maroon 5, and other pop, though less of this lately because I don't drive anywhere.... I also listen to Christian radio and enjoy Jeremy Camp, Lauren Daigle, and TobyMac. One of my all-time favorite bands is Pentatonix (the acapella group).

Books: YA fiction including Harry Potter, Twilight, Hunger Games, Divergent, Mortal Instruments, etc. I also really enjoy the Jennifer Chiaverini books, though I don't quilt at all. I like Roald Dahl, Dan Brown and Francine Rivers. Mostly fiction, easy reading and the Bible. I'm a scaredy cat though so no horror for me.

Missing Mail

I always rate the swaps I get. Also, I will always send out my mail on time or contact you if there is an issue. Please if you do not get something from me reach out. I will make it right. However, I put a lot of time and energy into my swaps so I like to give the post office enough time to get it to you. Right now I am waiting at least 4 weeks on domestic mail and 6 weeks on international mail before calling it lost.

I'm new to this and still trying to figure out some of the lingo. I'm also still trying to figure out shipping. I'm SO sorry if I send something with incorrect postage. Let me know if it's wrong! I'll make it up to you!

Comment: Great postcard!! I was raised Catholic and even tho I’m not actively practicing anymore I have an appreciation for the architecture of those churches and this one was lovely. I’ve never read the wheel of time book either, I was more into the Sword of Truth novels. But the trailer for the show looks really cool so I’ll be checking that out!

Comment: thanks! I adore uniquely shaped cards! I've been buying more ice cream (well, and sorbet, but potato potahto) this year than usual. I bought an ice cream attachment for my mixer, and was going to town for a while, but this year the freezer was too full to fit the ice cream bucket. My fault - bad planning. :( Thanks for the chunk!!
Response: Me too!! And life can never have too much ice cream!!

Comment: Thanks for the great chunk! Summer fruits and vegies are my favorite too. Nectarines are popular in my house because no one except for me likes the fuzzy fruit. Good luck on your health quest!

Comment: cute card. Most of my traveling has been in the last 5 years when we gotten a camping van. 3 week trips each year. One year the west coast, next the east coast and the last was all the great lakes. I have done some bus tours also as respite time. I'm also 63 years old too. :)

Comment: Oh, man, do I love a good soft pretzel. Even a mediocre soft pretzel. The Mall of America had a place with THE BEST soft pretzels way back when they opened. Somewhere along the line, the place closed. I am STILL sad! I'd love to hear any tips you have for making cheese fondue.

How fun about the pool opening this weekend - our temps have dropped to the 50's so no swimming for anyone I know! LOL! Thanks for the share and fun! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)

Comment: Loved the card which definitely brightened my week and thank you for all the nice goodies too. Stickers are so very thoughtful and I have actually never had a wax seal before - it is the first one I’ve ever owned, so I really appreciate it. Very pretty.
Response: I'm glad you liked it!! I hope you can put the wax seal to good use!!
