About Me

I'm the mother of five grown children, with two still living at home; and the grandmother of five, ages from 3 months to 17. We are a close family and enjoy movies, TV, museums, parks, festivals, family game nights, and just hanging out together.

9-23-2022 Busy season at work is winding down... or is it? I'm still feeling pretty brain dead at the end of most days. I just want to relax - read or watch TV. Can't get motivated to do much. I'm hoping that I'll feel more energized once it starts to cool off. Fall is always my favorite time of year to get out and DO!


I enjoy swapping postcards. Hand made or store bought, postcards bring a little bit of cheer to an ordinary day. I have a slight preference for receiving them naked and written on unless it's a swap for adding to my stash.

Zazzle cards (or the like) are fine with me. I've found the quality to be good on the ones I've seen, I don't really understand why some people don't like them.

My favorite kind of postcards are:

  • colorful
  • scenes from nature
  • arty
  • from an interesting place
  • whimsical
  • positive or uplifting

I especially like receiving postcards that include a fun note or quote or joke on the back, and tell me a little something about the person who sent it.

Other swaps

In addition to swapping postcards I've also particpated in some simple flat envelope swaps. I think it's fun to share stickers, extra notecards, and washi samples. (I do love me some washi tape!) I can sometimes use other kinds of paper ephemera also. I'm not really picky about what I receive, if I can't use it I will usually just pass it on in the next swap.

I'm enjoying the tea swaps I've joined. I started out drinking mainly Chai tea but, through the swaps, I have been introduced to a wide variety of teas and so far I love them all! So feel free to send all kinds, I'm willing to try anything.

I especially love decorating the envelopes that I send stuff in and I really enjoy getting decorated envelopes in my mail box. Mail Art is the best!

Favorite Crafts

I like paper crafts mostly. Acrylic paints. Brush pens and gel pens and markers (oh my!). Collage. Even watercolors, although I just play around. I have a couple of art journals and/or smash books - I'm not really sure what to call them. I really enjoy making postcards and greeting cards to send to my family and friends. I try to recycle or upcycle whenever I can.


I love pretty / beautiful things - flowers and gardens of all kinds; fun patterns and prints; sunrises and sunsets; rainbows; the moon, stars, and the night sky; natural scenic wonders.

My favorite color is aqua blue or turquoise. I also like pink and red.

I like animals... especially cats and birds... especially owls! Other favorite animals are woodland creatures (foxes, deer, rabbits, etc.) songbirds (chickadees, cardinals, wrens), frogs, lizards, and garden insects.

Some other things I enjoy: Baseball (big Astros fan here!); bird watching and nature walks; Chococat and Keroppi (Sanrio); Spring and Fall; Christmas; Ancient / Classical Greece; Wine, Margaritas, Craft Beers; Mexican Food; Street Art; Coffee and quaint coffee shops; Books, especially sci-fi and fantasy, Monty Python, MST3K, geocaching.

Other favorites

Books / authors - JRR Tolkien; Mary Renault; Rosemary Sutcliff; Steven Brust; Emma Bull; Dave Duncan; Ann Leckie; Dave Hutchinson (my tastes run to sci-fi / fantasy)

Movies / TV - Star Wars; Star Trek; Back to the Future; Ghostbusters; White Christmas; You've Got Mail; Indiana Jones; Guardians of the Galaxy; My Neighbor Totoro; Fantastic Mr. Fox; Princess Bride; The Birdcage; Knives Out; Master and Commander; The Good Place; Abbott Elementary; Brooklyn Nine Nine; Severence; Parks and Rec, Ted Lasso, Ghosts, Only Murders in the Building - new favorites: Slow Horses and Poker Face! (I seem to prefer action / adventure / funny / nerdy stuff!)

Music - Muse; Radiohead; Saint Motel; Weezer; Muse; Metric; The Dear Hunter; Panic at the Disco; Wolf Alice; Grouplove; Mother Mother; Amanda Palmer; Beach House; AFI; The Killers; Tame Impala (mostly Alternative)

Comment: Your ATC is very special in its symbolism. And I agree with your wishes for 2023. Your dove is unique and the paper you used is pretty cool. Thanks!
Comment: TYSM Lisa for the Dragon PC and your nice note. Which I loved both! I see you're a gal after my own heart, with your favorite genres being Sci. Fi. and Fantasy, Ha! i would love to find someone to swap books on those Genres or send each one another a postcard with book recommendations. Would you be interested in such swaps?
Response: I could definitely do recommendations, but I read books almost exclusively on my Kindle and/or checked out from the libraray, I hardly ever purchase them anymore. Books have gotten really expensive!
Comment: Thank you for the pretty birds. These are some of my favorite bird drawings. I have bought 3 of the coloring PC books of hers (Avian Friends-Geninne D. Zlatkis) I follow her on facebook. I wish she still did the monthly calanders. I loved having them on my computer screen whenever I opened it.

Comment: Thank you for the cute Christmas postcard! Yes, I have several favorites that I like to watch each year. How the Grinch Stole Christmas; Home Alone; Elf; Four Christmases; It's a Wonderful Life; The Santa Clause; Ernest Saves Christmas; and many more! I've already watched some of these so far this year but need to get busy on watching the rest. We've also watched some Hallmark and other tv Christmas movies. Merry Christmas to you and your family!
Comment: Thanks for the cool postcard Lisa! I love sci-fi, it's such an open sandbox for imagination. There's so much going on in this picture for me to speculate on, haha. I agree though, I would prefer to get along with the dinos!
