About Me

My name is Cynthia from the Pacific Northwest (Olympia, Washington). I am 44 years old and living with my husband and two young adult daughters, on a tiny hobby farm with 4 dogs, 3 cats, and some chickens.

I also work part-time at a pack-and-ship shop. A dream job for a snail mail junkie!

I hope to gain inspiration to do more crafts, share those crafts, swap postcards, pen pal letters, and more! !

Favorite Books

I absolutely love reading!! I am an avid reader, reading/listing to audiobooks up to 100 + a year.

I'll read just about any genre minus a few certain futuristic themes.

Favorite Crafts

I have been crafting my whole life and have yet to find a craft I haven't wanted to try.

Favorites are (the list is constantly growing)

  • Crocheting
  • Cross Stitching
  • Photography
  • Pocket Letters
  • ATC cards
  • Geli Pressing
  • Card Making
  • Collage Art Projects
  • Junk Journaling
  • Bullet Journaling
  • Small sewing Projects
  • Flipbooks
  • Watercoloring


I DISLIKE crude, rude, or vulgarity. Otherwise, my likes list can be endless. I am not religious but not against receiving religious-themed crafts.

I genuinely love it when others swap with their own hearts in mind.

I do not have small children so please no children/school-age stickers or foam stickers.


I can be a picky TV watcher because I have a hard time sitting still but when I do, I watch a diverse genre of TV shows ranging from Game of Thrones/House of Dragons, Pride, and Prejudice (BBC version), Sherlock Holmes (BBC version), Witcher, Stranger Things, Perry Mason (both old and new series), True Detective, Peaky Blinders, Vikings, Golden Girls, Law n' Order, Babylon Berlin, Deutschland, Murder She Wrote, and Longmire (just to name a few)

As far as movies go I'm a big Lord of the Rings/Hobbit and Star Wars fan, Classic Disney Movies.

I like classic black-and-white films, suspense/thriller (not horror), comedies, military, and movies based on booksβ€”too many to list. I'm not too fond of rom-com movies.

I do enjoy watching documentaries (all kinds from crime to nature, but especially Ken Burns)

Comment: thank you so much for the bird ATC. I love how different we all make them.
Comment: Thank you for your postcard. My dad was also a Star Trek fan. Yes vast and unknown are the two words I would use too! Thanks again Cynthia:)
Comment: Thanks for the cool Carter Woodson PC and I'll put the Princess of Las Vegas on my list, it looks interesting and weirdly enough I had a dream just last night about a princess Diana impersonator warning me of an impending storm. πŸ‘» I guess I better read it for the karma, lol
Comment: Thank you for the postcard. I understand what you mean about space being so unknown. When I was little, I refused to look at the stars for too long, because I feared some creature was out there, with x-ray vision, who could see me looking at them. I still have that fear, just not so much.
