Hello everyone! I enjoy sending and receiving happy snail mail. I live in North Carolina and am a Wisconsin transplant. I have no human babies, I had one elderly fur-baby - Mr. Carter the Cat a/k/a Grandpa Kitty, who passed away in December 2021 at the ripe old age of 21! In September 2022 I adopted French Toast who is 18 months old, although I'm calling him Toasty. Toasty is a ginger tabby who almost lost a hind leg. Thankfully the rescue saved his leg and it certainly does not slow him down, I'm constantly telling him to get down or taking him off a high place he should not be - little trouble maker!
Last week (Oct. 7th) I pulled a ligament in my ankle - excercising can be hazardous! My mailbox is a few buildings away from my townhome, usually a quick walk to the mailbox and back takes me less than 5 minutes. However since I'm now in one of those ever so fashionable boots, and in an effort to stay off of my ankle, I will be checking mail every few days. Please be patient with me, I will get around to rating everything that is received. Thank you :)
I mainly like to do postcard, note card, and letter swaps. Please do not feel it is necessary to send any extras items to earn a heart. I already have way, way too much in my inventory and I'm trying to minimize!
Postmarks: My mail is now being delivered and picked-up very late in the day - as late as 8:00 PM, even on the weekends! I hit the send button once I have placed outgoing mail in the box, but obviously with the mail being picked-up so late, it most likely will not be postmarked until the next day.
I enjoy most books, historical fiction, travel memoirs, and biographies. I will read just about anything, there have been maybe two or three books I started but did not finish because I did not like them.
I do creative journaling; it started off as a bullet journal/planner and has morphed into a planner, journal, devotional and anything and everything else. I'm already working on spreads for 2023 and the color theme is pastels.
Postcrossing is my version of armchair traveling! I love to travel, and Postcrossing helps with the travel bug. I am currently in the initial stages of planning my next trip which will be either Morocco or walking the Camino de Santiago - hopefully in September 2021, now put off until 2023. I'll just re-celebrate the milestone birthday from 2021. Any recommendations or suggestions would be appreciated.
Walking / hiking and generally being outdoors, but there is nothing about camping that I enjoy - it's too much work to be enjoyable.
I'm not much of a TV or movie watcher, but will occasionally will subscribe to Netflix when new seasons of The Crown, Grace & Frankie, Messiah, Emily in Paris, Bridgerton and Sweet Tooth become available.
I love all things stationery (paper, notecards, journals, stickers, washi tape & gel pens);
All things pineapple and lemon;
Toast themed items - well, because of Toasty of course;
I have become obsessed with the 'hello' and 'choose joy' motifs;
I'm a Francophile so that includes anything French related (Eiffel Tower, macaroons, lavender, berets, etc.);
Travel themed stickers and washi tape;
Pastel dies cuts/ephemera for 2023 journal;
Religious items: I am a Christian and I enjoy learning about the various religions of the world. Feel free to send something related to your faith for learning purposes.
Flowers: poinsettias, magnolias, peonies and geraniums
Animals: Cats, Hedgehogs, Llamas, Otters, Owls, Lambs/Sheep and Giraffes (adult appropriate ones are a challenge to find); and
Vespa / scooter - I have always wanted one, hopefully someday I'll own one.
Glitter - it usually ends up all over the house and my face!
Hello Kitty - yes, I'm a cat person, but I simply do not appreciate Hello Kitty items.
Disney or any other childish styles;
Cosmetics, bath and body products - I love them, but I now have allergies to a multitude of the ingredients :(
I Iike earl grey tea, but my favorites are mint, and chai. I like trying different flavors, so feel free to send others you think I may like.
