We just moved to a new house. It's still in the process of being set up. I've dedicated an entire wall in my office to Swap-Bot mail.
I'll be creating a new blog soon. I've decided to read all the books I have in my house, including cookbooks and craft books. I've already read a few, but I need to get my books organized first. I think it will be fun.
I love culture so much - music, plays, opera, books - and I love everything old.
Our 14 year old cat died, we are thinking of adopting a new kitten.
It's likely that I'll be going back to school in the near future, I'm excited about that. I want to study social work.
I live in Fargo, ND - the land of extremes. In winter ithe temps drop to -15F/-26C to 100F/38C. I moved here to be with my husband - whom I met in a chatroom in 1997. I've been here fourteen years, thirteen of which I've been married.
I have an 9 year old daughter who has ADHD. My husband also has ADHD and I have an executive functioning disorder, NVLD. I call our house 'The House of Executive Disorder." I like things neat and organized, my husband and daughter are messy. We muddle along.
i have four cats, one of whom is 14 years old. They are all rescues and I love them.
I currently work as an activities assistant at a nursing home . I'm also as writer and I want to be a death doula in the future.
I love being creative, plants, gardening, cooking, and spending time with my family. All three of us are readers, and all three of us are 'geeks.' I love Star Trek, my husband and daughter love Star Wars. We all love Doctor Who and comic books.
My friend recently described my decorating style as tasteful old lady and he's spot-on. Lots of antiques everything is a bit worn. Books, cushions and blankets are everywhere. We have lots of plants and tons of artwork.
As for my dislikes: Don't worry about them. I don't care what I'm sent. If I don't like it I will pass it on. I'm not here to get stuff I like. I'm here to meet people, be creative, and enjoy Happy Mail. There have been a few times I've gotten disappointing mail , where it's obvious that the person did the bare minimum or put no thought into what they were sending. But they did send me something, they followed the instructions, and therefore I'll rate them a 5.
Jazz, classical, '90s country, '90s alternative.
Miles Davis, Duke Ellington, Beethoven, Oasis
I am very much into jazz, especially cool jazz. I also love swing - Louis Amstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone.
Other artstis that I love: Lyle Lovett, George Ezra, George Gershwin, classical piano music, classic hymns, Ray Charles, Otis Redding...
I thought it would add a section of why I'm doing this. I love crafting, I love mail, and I love giving gifts to people. I love the idea of getting envelopes with crafting supplies. I look forward to learning more about ATCs and making them. I just want to have something to look forward to and to do.
This is also a major stress reliever for me. I work as an activities assistant at a nursing home and it can be very stressful at times. I have four cats, and both my daughter and husband have ADHD. Opening the mail and finding something unexpected from an actual person is wonderful. And creating something to send to another person is even more amazing.
I read just about everything but I especially love science fiction and fantasy. My favorite books are Brideshead Revisited, East of Eden, Uprooted by Naomi Novak, and the Morrigan Crow series.
I read for a variety of reasons - to escape, to learn, to expand my horizons. I read an incredible amount to my daughter. Anything related to books is always appreciated.
Note: Don't worry if you're not into fantasy. As I said I read everything.
I love writing and quotes. I love art, especially modern art. I love washi tape, bookmarks, cats, and I have a small elephant collection. My house is decorated in shades of blue. I prefer old over new, I'll save anything that has a cool font or picture.
I never wanted to do this but I'm going to. Please don't send me an overfilled envelope. One or two items is fantastic. And no glitter, please no glitter. No jewels or anything like that. I don't use them and they end up everywhere.
A single bookmark, stickers, washi tape, a postcard - things that I can quickly use. Quotes, tea, a magnet. It's much nicer to get one or two items carefully picked out rather than a stuffed envelope full of destash. I've gotten wonderful and amazing things through Swap-Bot but I am maxed out right now.
