Away notice!

Traveling to Chicago, won't be online until 1/25

Favorite Television

Do it yourself shows, cooking shows. Documentaries that teach me something. Currently enjoy watching The Reign, Call the Midwife and The Crown.

Favorite Books

I enjoy mysteries, true crime stories, biographies, travel stories and I read cook books as a hobby.

Things I really love

I love colors but don't like red or really pink things. I'm a big fan of Art Deco, Gargoyles, Buddha pictures, elephants, colors and patterns of all sorts. I love tulips and pretty flowers. I'm getting into washi tape. My favorite painters are almost all the Dutch Masters, I like Monet and Georgia O'Keefe as well.

Don't like.

I would REALLY prefer no cursive handwriting, I wasn't raised learning how to read it and I have hard time reading it. If it is however how you write then please write a litte bigger with spacing!

I don't like strong scents either in perfume or candles. Real lavender is always good. Due to dietary restrictions no food please. Not a fan of cartoon items, **please no stickers,no Hello Kitty things I don't care for beach/overly flowery or very pink stationary.**

Cities and places I love.

Favorite cities, Amsterdam-Lyon-Paris-Avignon-Mont Saint Michel-San Francisco- Seattle-Chicago.

About Me

Jack of all trades, very creative and active every day. I don't work but I volunteer at an educational farm and as a reading tutor. I love dancing, just got certified as a Zumba instructor.

Favorite Crafts

Knitting, weaving and spinning my own wool. Coloring books is another thing I love, I have too many and not enough time to sit down and color.

Favorite Music

Anything Latin or Zumba. Or both.

Sadly, you do not understand the idea behind the traveling postcards. Returning mine immediately to me makes me sad. It did not travel at all. Also, the first time you joined you sent and extra-large postcard which costs more to mail.

Hope you have a Happy Birthday!

RiverTopanga on Sep 10, 2022:

Thank you for adding your pastel colors to match the first section on the coloring collab in Aug. And for sending home to me! I think it came out beautifully. 🙂

Hello! And thank you for the second postcard for the Winter Themed PC swap. I had received one from you already, but it was so fun to get another. Both cards are beautiful. Good luck with your surgery. Take care! Melissa

Please recheck your emails. The swap that I canceled was the 2nd one in the series, not the one that I assigned partners for.
