About Me

9/11/2021 - Just Moved! I've updated my address but just in case I'm slow to rate due to mail forwarding! Really having a great time getting crafty and sending mail all over the place!

I love sending mail of all sorts and this past year I've really gotten into quilting.

No allergies, non-smoking home...um...I read a lot of books and like dinosaurs, cats, flowers, space, and a ton of other stuff.

please message me if a swap you are waiting for has not arrived! the postal service is doing their best, but I'm still seeing quite a few delays and undelivered mail. I am happy to send out new stuff/replacements ASAP, as long as you let me know!

Favorite Books

I'm a huge fan of Seanan McGuire/Mira Grant's writing in urban fantasy and sci-fi horror. I'm an avid reader of the Blogess and have been really enjoying the selections from her internet book club, particularly "A Southern Book Club's Guide to Killing Vampires" and "Mexican Gothic."

Megan Whalen Turner's "Thief" series is also a personal favorite.

Favorite Television

"Bluey" is the current favorite in our house, really adorable for anyone with kids (or, honestly, without - the episodes are only 8 minutes) plus "Waffles & Mochi" with Michele Obama is pretty life affirming. I'm also loving "The Good Place" very deeply right now.

Most of my screen watch time goes to youtube, particularly Critical Role, some cooking vlogs (Pick Up Limes, Downshiftology), and Just Get It Done Quilts.

Favorite Crafts

Card Making; Scrap Quilting, ATCs

New/Exploring: Mini Themed Notebooks/Junk Journals/Magpie Journals

I'm much more of a collaging type - I don't have great drawing/painting skills, but I love combining colors, textures, etc. to create new works.

Stuff I Like

I'm a pretty all-around stuff lover but some favorites are: - Stickers, all kinds, the weirder the better - Foreign language emphemera (non-English) - Pretty/Unique papers (think handmade, mixed materials, etc) - Novelty print fabric scraps - space, dinosaur, botanical, or dragon themed paper materials - anything related to mythology (from anywhere - Greek, Egyptian, Norse, Tasmania, Polynesia, etc.)

Things I Don't Need

Not a big deal if any of these come in, but I'll most likely pass them off to others who will enjoy them more!

  • Used stamps
  • Fine art supplies (paints, chalks, pastels, etc)
  • parent-themed stuff (ie. mommy & me, daddy's little boy, etc)
  • loose glitter (I've got plenty on hand)
