My name is Erica, I'm thirtysomething, and I live in New Jersey (in the USA). I love to read books, especially historical fiction. I'm an avid pen paler and mail artist. I love to make mail and art journal pages. I mostly use collage, but also rubber stamps and acrylic paint. I'm a "mail box junkie" and I'm not ashamed! I also love to crochet.

My dad and I have a flock of beautiful parrots. I have a cat named Grace.
-Picasso Giovanna (greenwing macaw). Picasso is "bonded" with me and loves when I spend time with her. She enjoys parrot toys, dried fruit, nuts of all kinds (especially pine nuts! Her favorite), and parrot treats.

-Grace (cat). Grace is awesome! I adopted her on June 18, 2022. She is mostly black with a little bit of white. She loves to run around the house and play with toys. She also catches the occasional mouse. She likes cat treats and cat toys galore!
