Hi im cait and I am 31 years old.
☀️ aries, 🌙 sag, ⬆️ scorpio.
I love snail mail and getting surprises in the mail so I’m looking forward to participating in lots of swaps.
my favorite color depends on my mood but I love green, yellow and pastels
I love history (especially women in history) and outer space and flowers and celestial bodies. I love mythologies & legends (Greek/Roman, Celtic, Egyptian, Norse, Arthurian, etc)
I don’t consider myself very active but I love swimming and diving, playing croquet and badminton. I love riding bikes and am trying to learn how to roller skate. But most of my free time goes into reading and journaling.
I have been journalling since i was 5 and have boxes and boxes of journals. My big project right now is to condense some 25 years of journaling into one journal. it’s a massive project, I wish I had more time for.
My favorite flowers are pink peonies, daffodils, and tulips! I love French lavender.
I like candles/incense and crystals and catholic saint cards and rosaries and stickers.
I’ve been reading tarot cards for 16 years. I have a lot of tarot and oracle decks that I mess around with. if you'd like a reading, feel free to message me. (I dont charge for tarot readings and I dont feel comfortable introducing money into my practice of card reading but I always say that i appreciate a cup of tea/coffee on ko-fi, if you'd like to do so)
I drink lotsa tea and collect scrunchies, postcards, wheat pennies, and enamel pins.
Enamel pins that I like are associated with the books, movies, shows, but I also like witchy themed pins and I collect disney pins (Cinderella is my big collection but i also have some princess sets. other characters focus on are Marie (from Aristocats) Tiger Lily (from Peter Pan, im also a fan of wendy and the mermaids in mermaid lagoon), pocahontas, merida. (from brave), hercules and its a small world.
I’m teaching myself, American Sign Language and think it’s a beautiful language and have a deep appreciation for deaf culture.

Folklore by Taylor Swift is amazing. Sour by Olivia Rodrigo gets its fair rotation on my shuffle.

Fav Authors: Jane Austen Shakespeare Kiersten White The Brönte sisters Beatrice Small Julia Quinn Jane Ashford Grady Hendrix Victoria Holt/Jean Plaidy Alison Weir
Mostly historical fiction, fantasy, magical realism, and cozy murder mystery series with female detectives.
I got into romance after attending a book convention for romance writers. I tend to go to my tried and true historical fiction in regards to romance. Regency and Medieval being my favorites.
I’m super into comics, mostly marvel as it’s something my whole family likes and bonds over since I was a kid. but I enjoy smaller prints too. My favorites are:
Fav Marvel: Runaways by Brian K. Vaughan Exiles by Judd Winick All New X-Factor by Peter David Hawkeye by Matt Fraction House of M by Brian Michael Bendis Astonishing X-men by Joss Whedon Captain Marvel by Kelly Sue Deconnick Ms. Marvel by G. Willow Wilson Operation S.I.N. By Kathryn IMMONEN
The Maximoffs and Hawkeyes are my favorite!
Other fav comics: Princeless by Jeremy Whitley Lumberjanes by Watters, Ellis, Allen & Stevenson Paper Girls by Brian K. Vaughan Wicked + Divine by Kieron Gillen & Jamie McKelvie Saga by Brian K. Vaughan
CURRENTLY READING: Love in the Time of Serial Killers
again historical fiction specifically the costume drama , I’m a huge fan.
My favorite movie genre has to be horror though. I’m a fairly recent fan. I used to be too scared to watch horror but have developed an appreciate and love of them in the last few years.
My favorite movies are: Practical Magic Knives Out Wolfwalkers The Mummy Bajirao Mastani Crimson Peak Thoroughbreds A Little Princess Matilda Madeline Professor Marston & the Wonder Women Ophelia Love & Other Disasters Midsommar Populaire The Love Witch Clueless Inception Amelie Cinderella (2015)

BBC and PBS historical DRAMAS 👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼
My favorite show right now is Yellowjackets. The characters are so compelling, the plot is wild and the acting is top tier. Love all the directing choices and casting. It’s so good. My fav character is Lottie,
I loved Season 4 of stranger things. My favorite new addition to the show was Chrissy Cunningham. She was such a minor character but of what they showed us I thought was really interesting and I could relate to some of her issues. I thought her being the catalyst into the Vecna storyline with well done but I wish she had lived a bit longer because I think she would have been a fun addition to the team and I would loved to see her interactions with everyone, especially with Eddie because their scene in the forest was really enjoyable to watch.
Bridgerton is another favorite right now. I love jane Austen and love the trailer for the this gossip girl esque regency concept. i loved the 1st season and then devoured the entire series, reading all 8 books. Ive watched the entire 2nd season in one day, i love the changes the show made, i think it made the character more complex and interesting, the drama was upped and stakes were higher. thats good television. i cant wait for Benedict's season! But I’m looking forward to Colin and Penelope’s season in #3!
I’m currently back on my Marvel bullshit with these new Disney+ content. I am particularly obsessed with the Loki show. I’ve always liked Loki but after his show, he’s probably one of my favorites! That show gave me everything I wanted and liked, weird comic book stuff, alternate realities, time travel, deep meta character introspection and development and an awesome love story. I loved Sylvie’s character so much, I was surprised by how much I liked her and she quickly became one of my favorite MCU characters. And Alligator!Loki is obviously the superior Loki. 🐊 It was really great.
I love Game of Thrones.i think my favorite book in the series is actually the history books that tells all about the world. I got it for my mom for Christmas before I got into the series but I think I’ve read it more than her at this point 😂. My favorite character is Sansa Stark. I love House Stark and House Tyrell (Margaery is another favorite) but I’m probably, personality wise, would fit in best with House Martell. I love Oberyn, he was such a fun character. I have a wonderful Brienne of Tarth art, that I got at Megacon on my wall. I actually have framed art all over all my walls as I collect vintage picture frames.
Watching House of the dragon. And I’ve become a bit obsessed with Alicent. I know people hate her character but I relate to her and feel for her.
most of my free time is spent reading but every once in a while I also like to embroider/cross-stitch, paint (watercolor and acrylics), journal and write stories.
No particular theme for my current journal.
And I’m working on a Loki (mythology not marvel) themed art book. (It’s a deep forest green and gold and silver), there are poetry quotes and art that showcase recurring themes of mischief, chaos, enchantment, magic, etc.
I love the characters of gudetama and Moomin! I think they’re so cute! I got the Moomin tea in an international tea swap and it’s so good but it’s from Finland and I can’t find it here in the USA, so if you share a tea bag of Moomin tea I would love you forever💞💞

I got into postcards through postcrossings.
My favorite postcards are paintings/art, vintage/retro/historical, recipe cards for drinks/desserts/soups, outer space/constellations, stars, fashion, people reading, women with red hair, fairytales &mythologies, and things related to my interests and appropriate holiday cards (ex: valentines in February,etc)
Art styles I like: Pre-Raphaelite Classical Medieval Tapestries Renaissance Impressionism PopArt Art nouveau Baroque/Rococo Romanticism
I love Waterhouse and Klimt paintings.
Anything related to my fav books, movies or music as listed above.
If you cant think of what to write on the card: send me a favorite song, a line from a book, a motivating quote, or a small poem. I love getting music, movie and book recommends.
Queens Podcast and Scared to Death are my favorites
I WILL NEVER FLAKE ON SWAP.
IF I EVER FEEL I CANT DO A SWAP IN TIME, I DROP FROM IT, KNOWING I COULD ALWAYS MAKE MY OWN LATER. SO PLEASE BEFORE YOU RATE ME POORLY, REACH OUT.
I’ve have had to do resends before and I have no problem doing so! please communicate with me, thank you!
-edit: I live in a trailer park and we have a community mailbox/ Dropbox center which has resulted in a lot of incoming and outgoing mail being delayed.
I don’t know if we have a new mailman but recently a lot of the mail is getting delivered to the wrong residents box and so they’re filling up the Dropbox with return mail for it to be resorted and delivered correctly. It’s been a bit of an issue.
Please don’t stress about it, I’m sure to get the mail eventually.
