My Etsy Store
I am 49, vegan and love to rollerskate. I am married, and I am a new grandma. I am "Mum" to 2 ( 3 yrs. and 10 months). I have been writing letters to penpals since 2000. I have pals all over the world and LOVE making connections. I answer every letter. Age difference doesn't matter to me. I don't even mind springing for an international stamp! I am a purchasing manager by occupation. I am 100 % remote. I don't take myself too seriously and look for the good in others.
I love metallic gold and hearts. Hearts everywhere!! :-) I hope you will write and connect. I am a safe space for all beings. I am a vocalist. My husband plays guitar. We go out and see music almost every night. We live in an area rich with art and culture. Open mic's are my favorite. We have a family band "Weird With A Beard". I answer every letter!
I am a caregiver for my mom. She has Rheumatoid arthritis and can’t move very well.
I love gardening and taking care of my flower gardens. I grown herbs, tomatoes, Zucchini, collard greens, garlic, peppers and beets. I’m thinking of starting a pickled beets business.
I knit and crochet. I make ponchos and sell them on Etsy. I also make animal baby blankets for the new babies that cross my path, mostly at work. Usually if I am invited to a baby shower. My last two blankets were a dragon and a unicorn.
I am an avid beach goer. I sweep the beaches of treasures and turn it into high end .925 sterling silver jewelry and art pieces. My favorite beaches are dog friendly as there are usually rocks and more treasures.
I love camping on or near the beach. As I get older I find I can’t sleep on the ground anymore. We have a pop up camper but it’s way too much work so I am looking to get a smaller drivable camper soon.
I am an artist. I specialized in photography which I now have as a hobby. I have degrees in Media Arts and Fine Arts before getting a bachelor’s of Arts in Art Management and a Masters in Business Administration ~ Collaborative Leadership. I’m up to my eyeballs in debt and wouldn’t change any of my educational choices. I landed my dream job in 2021.
I have an Etsy shop for my jewelry and ponchos. RadiateJoyStudio. Feel free to check it out. I don’t solicit or even care too much about selling my art.
I work with colored glass. I photograph colored glass and use it in collage. I tumble my own glass and make art to decorate my house. I make my own “sea glass” by tumbling pretty bottles as a way of recycling.
I don’t have a bunch of rules for my penpals. I meet them all where they are at and accept each person for who they are and what they believe. We don’t have to be twins or share the same beliefs. Different opinions and views on things brings growth, learning, and perspective.
I don’t hate anything or anyone. Although horses creep me out. The are SO big and their heads are enormous and they are so teeth and lip forward…. Not to mention way smarter than they should be. Bonus points for not writing to me about your fishing and hunting escapades. They turn me off and make me uncomfortable. I am VERY vegan.
I am part of the LGBTQIA + community but don’t feel the need to explain my Rainbow to anyone anymore. Again, I am a safe space for you.
Religion is something personal to everyone. I’m agnostic and regardless of the amounts of bible add ins you send me, I won’t be converted. But I do find beauty in our differences and would be willing to have mature conversations about that.
I love to trade anything that fits in an envelope. Stickers, friendship books, notecards, whatever. I love exchanging packages as well. I like deciding on themes on a pal by pal basis. I once had a pal that exchanged granny squares with me so we had a matching blanket in the end.
I’d love to go on a penpal tour one day and visit pals across the world. I met a pal who survived the attack on the twin towers years ago. I find pals fascinating.
I sew and make clothes as well. My favorite thing to make are maxi skirts. My favorite one is a bright shiny metallic gold.
I recently started making my own paper from penpal letters (not my beloved swaps ❤️), junk mail/extra copies of bills. I press my own flowers and use them in my paper. It brings me such joy. I add in things like glitter and mica pieces, yarn, twine, etc…
I recently found myself looking after bees that my son had been taking care of. He bought a house recently next door but didn’t want to disturb them. They are so happy. I’ve been learning a lot about it. I love bees very much. 🐝.
I love love and hearts. I wrote a book on Love Leadership. I live my life and navigate through all my decisions through a lens of love.
