About Me

I joined Swap-Bot in 2008 after a friend blogged about her experiences here. I had a lot more time back then!

My user name comes from a portion of my summer home address in Maine from before they put in a paved road and changed the address for 911. I was struggling to come up with a user name (way back in the 90s) and everything I entered was taken. I figured no one else would use part of that address and I was right.

I spend more time on TikTok, Youtube and Pinterest than I'd care to admit.

I'm a letter writer, postcard sender, traveller, doodler and quilter. I still send out birthday cards and Christmas cards to friends and family.

I see inspiration every day in nature and the ordinary things around me. I take a hike every Sunday with my husband and two dogs.

I love all colors but especially those found in nature along with blues and browns.

My favorite postcards are unusual, thought provoking, art, architecture, foreign places, vintage, creepy, funny, animals, and recipes.

I started quilting when I was far too young and had much more time to do so. My goal this year (2023) is to create at least one quilt and also work on smaller sewing projects including an Alzheimer's fidget blanket. I like creating my own patterns and designs.

I've enjoyed collab handmade postcards, collab coloring postcards, mini-zines, handmade envelopes, mail art, handmade bookmarks and junk journaling creations.


📚 I'm on GoodReads.

Because I commute an hour each way to work, I listen to a lot of audio books. I listen to them on Audible, YouTube and find second hand audiobooks at thrift stores and used book stores.

Right now I'm listening to Soul Dog which is free on Audible.

I've also collected Nancy Drew books - the kind that I had in the 70s and early 80s. My husband and I looked through antique stores and thrift shops trying to find the ones I am missing and now I have them all (except the cookbook). I would like to read them all from the first book on.

I read a few magazines when I'm looking for something different and shorter than a book. My favorites are Mary Jane's Farm, Garden & Gun and Daphne's Diary.

Podcast that I Enjoy: Crime Junkie, Business Wars, Everything 80s, Back to the 80s Radio, Going West: True Crime Podcast, Noble Blood, Carolina Crimes, The Deck, The Arcanum Project, In the Dark, The Global Leadership Podcast, Coffee Break French, Counter Clock

Need an Idea?

📌Recipes (I love to bake, cook and use the crock pot and my InstaPot). I'd be very interested in any dog food or dog treat recipes you may have found to be wonderful. We are vegetarian (not vegan but I do a lot of vegan recipes). I enjoy old family recipes, too and the ones from Church fundraising cookbooks. I'm currently translating my great-grandmother's handwritten French recipes.

📌Interesting articles from magazines or newspapers that you would like to share or even magazines (gently used is fine)

📌Local lore articles from your area.

📌Interesting Stickers or Washi tape. I love Lisa Frank stickers, Tim Holtz, Washi Stickers

📌Anything you made: art, envelopes, notecards, crochet, knitted, etc.

📌Herbal Teas / Green Teas or other teas (No loose, please and no Matcha)

📌Unusual stamps, vintage or foreign (used is fine)

📌All things Edward Gorey or Tim Holtz

📌Book or Podcast recommendations

📌A pen pal letter. I love hearing about your life.

📌A dog toy

No Thank You

✋✋✋ Things that could melt
✋✋✋ Teacher / reward stickers
✋✋✋ Matcha Tea - I've tried and just don't like it

Comment: Thanks so much!
Comment: Thanks for the card, I'll pass it along.
Comment: Thanks for samsstuff's artsy stitched postcard. I love your fabric paper combo. I continued the stitched theme and will have it moving along as soon as possible.

Comment: Thank you for the cute note. I really like your sticker labels with pertinent info. Mouse the lilac point Siamese will be your sleeping companion, and the winged pandacorn squishmallow is prepared to take up any slack. There are two extra blankets at the ready, but Mouse sleeps pretty warm. I even have a brand new hair dryer still in the box you can use. Your airport choice is a pain, but at least your aunt will be picking you up. Scary Farm traffic is usually at a standstill, so we'll walk the mile from my house. Bring comfy shoes! Your restaurant choices don't have many exciting vegetarian options, but I've got you covered there. I'm currently a usual vegetarian, who leans towards vegetarianism naturally but isn't so strict as when I was vegetarian, vegan and fruitarian. I kept getting anemic with dangerously low sodium levels. Point is, I can cook, and cook vegetarian dishes! I'll probably make rice paper wrapped salad rolls with peanut sauce to take to Scary Farm with us, but I guarantee you'll want one of their boysenberry funnel cakes when you smell them. Safe travels. See you next month!
Response: I love a good Siamese for a cuddle buddy. It's great I've discovered a fellow vegetarian to host me!
Comment: Thank you so much for your nice postcard!
Comment: What a cute post card. Thanks

Comment: Thanks for the pc to work on. I loved the folder :)
Response: You are welcome. I'm partnered with you so often seems. We are almost like pen pals!
Comment: Thanks for @jessica's postcard. I've finished my section (did a black and pink piece). Also, thanks for the nice stickers.
Comment: Thus is a fun one to work on. Thanks :)
Comment: Great pc from a fellow Temu addict!! LOLz, my cart is over $100 right now:) Great selection of stickers - thanks for another fun swap!
Response: Temu...ugh! I guess I should not tell you about going to all your orders (even old ones) and requesting price adjustments. Then you get even more to spend.

Comment: I don’t think I’ve seen this card before- so weird how the light shines into the glass like that!

Comment: Hi Sarah! Thank you for the card. I actually grew up in NY. When I was between 8-10 I remember climbing the Statue of Liberty. All I remember is being tired, hot and wishing it was over, lol!
monsbrick rated for AA.HM.PC: Book Pages Art - July on Jul 12, 2023
Comment: Hi Sarah, love this postcard. From the color of the dictionary book pages to the ledger paper. I have so much old ledger paper and I never thought to try using it this way.
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful blue card 💙

Thank you for the CPG May wishes of neat return labels, deliver labels and the stamps! Oh I don't like those kind of dogs really! I find other breeds better, too!

Thank you so much for sending me the second postcard for #341834. So generous of you to quickly pop one in the mailbox for me. (Apologies for my mistake thinking the first one never made it when it did.) This one is a lovely postcard by Anita in the Netherlands. Your 'cultivate kindness' section is lovely.

Sarah, thanks so much for the nice card and starbucks card for my birthday :) (via cpg wishlist) The mile-high icing sounds like the perfect amount for my 8 year old self... I LOVED icing! Now that I'm older it's too sweet, haha. Hope you have a wonderful week!
