MY LAST NAME IS NOT KATZ. I get more mail addressed with the wrong last name than I do with the correct last name. Please, please spell my name correctly. Thank you!
*** I don't ever flake. If something hasn't arrived, I will gladly resend. Just please send me a message and let me know before rating. Thanks! ***
****For postcard swaps, I'd love it if you sent them blank in an envelope, if possible. I won't rate down if the swap calls for them to be sent written/naked.****
I'm happily married and mom of adult children. I'm originally from Hawaii and now live in Arizona. Arizona has hot weather, so please don't mail me anything that can melt.
I send notecards and postcards to lonely seniors every month. Don't feel obligated, but if you feel the need to add a tuck-in with the swap, those supplies are always welcome! I belong to several organizations with lists of names, so ask me about it if you're interested in sending them cheery notes too.
I listen to audiobooks only. The books I enjoy most are in the suspense/thriller genre. Authors - Ruth Ware, Riley Sager, Gillian Flynn, BA Paris, Peter Swanson, Simone St James and others.
I buy my postage stamps from a stamp dealer, so I try to put interesting stamps on whatever I mail out (when my stash is full).
I love shopping at thrift stores or Daiso. I usually look for stationery. I have a serious paper addiction and always buy paper/stationery when I see it. I guess it goes with my love of pen palling. I have several pen pals all over the world.
Here's what I enjoy: audiobooks, true crime podcasts, cooking (stove top, crockpot, pressure cooker), farmers markets, decaf coffee, chai tea lattes, pen palling, making envelopes, period piece shows, Youtube videos of cute animals. I am a huge animal lover and have 2 dogs in our family plus we take care of a feral family of cats outdoors. I can't imagine our home without any pets.
My husband and I try to travel as much as possible. I love experiencing new cultures and meeting new people. Our adventures don't have to be long ones....day trips or weekend trips are fun too!
