I'm a mom of 3 beautiful young boys (13, 11, 10). I'm trying to instill the love of mail in my 3 boys but sadly they don’t have a fondness for writing or paper crafts. I do continue to send mail to my nieces pretty regularly though and still have hope that one may grow up to be a snailmailer, haha. I live in a tiny "village" in Michigan and love Michigan State University (Go Green! Go White!). I love stickers, making my own envelopes, deco books, and making my own postcards. I can't remember a time when I didn't love sending and receiving mail!
We are cat people - we have two actual cats here along with my 8yo who loves to meow and pretend he is a cat. Lily is an 13yo tortoiseshell that we adopted in Sept 2018. Midge is a ball of energy with the cutest meow you ever did hear, adopted Sept 2020 after our dear Pounce passed away.
2020 was a rough year here, even without the pandemic. My dad passed away in January, my grandma (best penpal ever) in June, and then Pounce in September. Grandpa passed away in April 2021 so unfortunately the grief continued, but swaps have helped me cope.
Most current country, some (not all) pop. I can never remember artists' names or who sings what...its just not my forte :) not so great with lyrics either, my kiddos know more words to current songs than I do! My hubby is the total opposite--great with songs and artists, can't live without music in his daily life.
Outlander, The Handmaid's Tale, Ted Lasso. Hoping to find a new series (with multiple seasons) soon.
I love Disney movies, especially Lilo and Stitch and Beauty and the Beast. Will watch almost any movie genre....except horror. I'm just too much of a scaredy cat.
handmade envies, deco books, decorating envies, flipbooks, handmade die cuts or embellishments, basically anything involving glue or scissors...
I’ve been joining a lot more PC swaps lately and thought that my profile may be lacking in terms of direction for my partners here. Most of my partners seem to have a nice list!
But, in reality, I’d rather be surprised than get PCs in the same 10 or so styles that I have listed out in my profile. Some of my all time faves are things that I never would have thought to list out on my profile!
Would love to hear your thoughts on why you chose a particular PC though!
I love surprises, really truly do. No allergies. Love love love decorated or colorful envelopes.
I would be super excited to receive:
~Stickers, sticker flakes.
~Stationery paper--especially multiple sheets of the same design to write long-ish penpal letters!
~Washi tape, especially, shiny, vintage look, monochromatic, thin, or thick styles. Would love some solid color foil look washi.
~Blank address labels. Big wide ones where I don’t have to smush my big ol handwriting inside.
~Handmade embellishments I can use to add flavor to my crafts!
~floral themed items, always can find a way to use them!
~enamel dots, store bought or handmade!
The following is not really my thing and I would prefer not to receive:
~off-season holiday items
I generally have a very healthy stack of deco books— so let me know if you ever want a private swap or are just in need of a few more :). Happy to keep ‘em moving!
