My name is Anna. I live in Eastern Ohio. I am an introvert and a daydreamer. I like cozy days inside when it rains, a good book, a hot cup of tea or coffee, and a cat on my lap. I have two cats: a large brown/grey tabby named Kenzie and a little black medium hair named Cinna. I also have a dog named Chloe. Her dad is part wolf, so she can be a handful. Ha!
If you are sending a profile-based swap, please send items based on my likes list and avoid items on my dislike list.
I consider myself a creative person and I love to learn new skills. I have many hobbies, including crochet, reading, penpaling, Postcrossing, cooking, baking, and watching tv/movies. I also like learning new crafts. Kits are fun because they include everything I need so I don't have a big shopping list. Craft kits of all kinds are welcome!
If you haven't received something from me, let me know. The US Post seems so messed up these days but I'll happily do a resend. The worst that could happen is that you get 2 bits of happy mail, and is that really so bad? š
HALLOWEEN SWAPS -- I LOVE Halloween. My favorite motifs are black cats, bats, spiders, haunted, witchy, spooky, creepy, cemeteries, apothecary, etc. My favorite Halloween colors are black with silver/grey and/or purple. I also like blue and green mixed in. Classic monsters are fun, too. I love reading urban fantasy all year so I also enjoy werewolves, vampires, witches, and mythical creatures. I like ghost stories and lore.
If you made it for me, I will love it! A handmade notecard, postcard, or gift is always A-Okay! I appreciate you using your time and talents on me. There are so many creative and passionate people on this site! If you are making something for me, and it will take longer than the swap allows, let me know so I don't think you flaked. I don't mind waiting for a handmade item.
If you are sending to me I would really appreciate it if you tell me in your note where you live. I love seeing all the places you all are sending from! And, if possible, if you're going to the post office to mail your swap, could you ask for the round postmark for your postcards and cards? That would be fantastic. Thank you!
A note about local mail service I always send out on time. If you're waiting for something from me and it's taking too long, let me know. I live in a rural area with a small post office with limited hours. Our mail is sent out of the county to be processed. As a result, it could take a day or two before it gets postmarked. I assume it's also sent there before arriving at my local post office. If I haven't rated you, then I most likely haven't received anything. I always try to rate quickly and always appreciate being rated. But I do make mistakes, so let me know if you think I should have received something.
Some crafts I've dabbled in or would like to try: plastic canvas, embroidery, diamond art, resin, polymer clay, and knitting. But all adult craft kits are welcome.
I enjoy most teas and I'll try anything once. I prefer black and herbal teas usually, but don't let that stop you from sending something. I'm interested in trying different teas, so feel free to send me your favorites or something unusual! I'd especially like to try teas from out of the U.S.A. but am happy with anything.
If you're sending a blank postcard, please send it in an envelope so I can use it. I love to collect and send postcards around the world.
If you're writing on the postcard, please send it naked. And write a little note--I want to learn about you! Please tell me some interesting facts (about you or the postcard you chose to send), about your favorite things, your community, celebrations, funny or embarrassing stories, or anything else you'd like to share. Please include the date and the weather/temperature if you can.
Postcards I would enjoy (but send what you like!):
I have always considered myself a bookworm. I've struggled with depression which sometimes zaps my interest or attention span. I once went over a year without reading a single book. Audiobooks helped bring me back to my passion.
I sometimes get on a kick of reading lots of dark and intense books and have to decompress with lighter cozy mysteries or YA reads.
Some of my favorite authors are Patricia Briggs, Charlaine Harris, MoĆÆra Fowley-Doyle, Kelley Armstrong, and Agatha Christie.
I mostly enjoy reading mysteries and urban fantasy, but I'll read anything that looks good. I'm always looking for book recommendations. So let me know what your favorites are.
I included my Goodreads link above.
I started a reading journal for 2022! I'm not great at keeping up with a journal, but I'm really going to try!
Update for June 2022--I started working at a library! I absolutely enjoy organizing and shelving books or finding them to fulfill library holds. The best part is when a patron comes in asking about a book I've read and I get to gush about it!
I enjoy a little bit of everything. Some of my favorite movies that I like to watch over and over are While You Were Sleeping, Casablanca, Singing in the Rain, Hello Dolly, My Best Friend's Wedding, Knives Out, Encanto, Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Lord of the Rings, X-Men, and any Marvel movie. I enjoy mystery movies and love Christmas movies. I watch horror sometimes, but I'm not in it for the gore. I prefer supernatural horror to slasher films.
There are too many to list! I tend to start a series and stop watching because I don't want it to end. Or I get distracted by another show that is starting up. So I'm rarely current on any TV program. I prefer mystery, police procedural, dramas, sci-fi, and a few sitcoms. I have recently discovered British crime dramas and am obsessed.
This seriously depends on my mood, but some favorites include Sara Bareilles, Regina Spektor, Ingrid Michaelson, Billie Eilish, Lady Gaga, Adele, Lauren Daigle
Musicals: Rent, In the Heights, Wicked, Hadestown, Dear Evan Hansen, Hello Dolly, Singing in the Rain, Phantom of the Opera
