About Me

I am a wife to an amazing man, and a mommy of two sweet little boys: a 5-year-old and a 2-year-old. Snail Mail has always been a hobby of mine, that I hope to share with my family. We live in Small-Town-Kentucky.

We love cooking/baking together and trying new foods, wines, beers, and bourbons. We also like to hike, play disc golf, and spend time outside.

Our family will love anything you send us! We're very excited to connect with you!

Favorite Crafts

Unfortunately, I have not had very much time for crafting lately. With two little-ones in the house, it's difficult to do very many extra activities that don't involve them.

For now, please don't send craft supply gifts. I have so many wonderful art supplies that are in storage waiting for a mommy-day. I'd hate for more nice pieces to be sitting in limbo when another crafter could be using them.

Thank you for understanding! :)

With that request, I know it can be hard to come up with ideas. Here are a few ideas for the gift swaps: Notecards and greeting cards, tea bags, magnets, wine stoppers, spiral journals and notebooks, felt tip pens, pretty press-nails, postage stamps, seed packets, long necklaces, stud earrings, handy or funny gadgets, pretty boho decor, face clays, cooking gadgets, instant pot recipe books. Anything with floral patterns or pastel colors.

Emily Watches....

TV: Outlander, Downton Abbey, Mad Men, Firefly, The Office, Bluey, Buffy/Angel, Good Eats, Pokémon, Joyce Meyer Ministries, Virgin River, Poldark, Alone, Victoria, Game of Thrones, Big Bang Theory, The Chosen, Call the Midwife

Film: Everything by Tim Burton, Everything by Studio Ghibli/Hayao Miyazaki, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Twilight, Hunger Games, Chronicles of Narnia, Memoirs of a Geisha, Monty Python, The Princess Bride

Swapping Philosophy

All of the other users that I've swapped with have been awesome! This is a really special form of social media for a unique group of people. Right from the beginning, we all have so much in common! But, I have to admit, I am a little disappointed to see so many people with a long list of items that they don't want you to send them.

I will never say that I dislike what you send me. Opening my mailbox to anything that is not a bill is so thrilling to me; and it is so much more special when it comes from a person who has taken their time to dedicate it to me. I WANT you to send me a piece of YOUR heart, or a piece of YOUR mind, because that is the precious connection that we have the opportunity to share with each other. I don't care if your stickers aren't my favorite color, or if your postcard was free from the corner shop down the street....

Anything you send me will be loved. And, I am grateful. If I forget to leave you a Thank You note, please know that you brightened my day!
