About Me

Hi! I'm Michelle from the great Pacific Northwest.
I live with my boyfriend and our furry ones, 4 lionhead rabbits: Aro, Shmi, Vader & Ginny. I used to watch my brothers Husky Rory while he was in Japan (for 3 years) but now they're back together in Virginia.

I geek out with a lot of things, especially Harry Potter. I'm a Slytherin & Pukwudgie according to Pottermore :)

I've had the chance to meet the stars of Supernatural and that was amazzzing!

Hobbies: reading, watching tv, hiking, pub trivia, amateur spelunking, sightseeing (road trips), scrapbooking, cooking, eating (I'm a foodie) & of course, postcrossing.

I love Podcasts- especially crime/investigative ones like Serial, In The Dark, S-Town and Atlanta Monster.

Things I collect: postcards, pressed pennies, shotglasses (got this from my mom), magnets from my travels & anything Harry Potter.

Love Sports- here are my favorite teams:

  • Soccer/Futbol: Seattle Sounders
  • Football: New York Giants
  • Baseball: Seattle Mariners
  • College: Notre Dame & Gonzaga
  • Hockey: Vancouver Canucks
  • Basketball: Golden State Warriors (but Supersonic fan first)

I love watching the Olympics too. Team USA!

Favorite Movies

I like a lot of movies & watch a lot of random stuff but here are some movies I can watch over and over and over:

  • Scott Pilgrim vs the world
  • Some Like it Hot
  • Forgetting Sarah Marshall
  • Tropic Thunder
  • Dazed & Confused
  • Little Giants
  • Harry Potter & Fantastic Beasts
  • 10 Things I Hate About You
  • Armageddon (my guilty pleasure)

-I watch a lot of Matthew Vaughn movies too.

-anything from Edgar Wright! (love the Cornetto Trilogy!) Have you seen Baby Driver? SEEEE ITTT!!

I'm a Marvel & DC fan so I watch all those superhero movies too.

I also watch foreign films. I understand Tagalog so I watch a lot of Filipino films. I also watch Korean ones (with subtitles) - Train to Busan is really good!

Classic Fav: Abbott & Costello meet Frankenstein

I love Scooby Doo and watch all the cartoon movies for it but especially love Zombie Island, Cyber Chase and Ghoul School.

I'm also guilty of watching those Lifetime/Hallmark Christmas movies during the holidays. The cheesier, the better!

Favorite Books

I am currently doing the POPSUGAR READING CHALLENGE!

HARRY POTTER! (I reread them a lot)

anything by James Rollins (met him once!) and anything by J.T. Ellison. I also enjoy Philippa Gregory novels (Tudor & Plantagenet). Other authors I enjoy are Neil Gaiman & Gillian Flynn.


Big fan of dystopian & YA. I also read war memoirs and celebrity biographies/memoirs. My favorite genre to read is Thriller/Mystery.

The book I read a lot when I was younger was 'Holes' so that's a personal favorite.

Favorite Television

I watch too much TV but it's sooooo good! I watch them all, I don't have a genre preference. I even watch foreign ones.

My favs currently on air: Supernatural, Rick & Morty, iZombie, Younger, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Outlander, Homeland, American Gods, Westworld, Bob's Burgers, Bull, Bizarre Foods, BBT

Old Favorites: I Love Lucy, CSI, The Vampire Diaries, Meteor Garden, Revenge, Happy Endings, Scooby Doo, Community, Broadchurch, Gossip Girl, Band of Brothers, HIMYM, The Office, Teen Wolf, Dexter

My BF and I watch a lot of NatGeo & Animal Planet. We love the Planet Earth series.

I watch almost everything on Food Network.

I know it's cheesy but I've been watching The Challenge series on MTV since 2003 & I love it. (always Team CT)

Favorite Music

My favorite genre is bluegrass/country and folk (Americana).

I also listen to a lot of classic rock, mo-town, rap, musicals & boy bands- BSB for life!


I'm not really picky, I like most cards but enjoy tourist ones the most.

I don't collect stamps by themselves, I like them on my cards and I enjoy commemorative ones. If you could use some on my card, I'd appreciate it! (I especially love ones from UK & Canada!)

here are my favorites: (you can send written or blank in envie)

  • Sunsets/Sunrises
  • Waterfalls
  • aerial city views (multi-view ok too)
  • National Parks
  • Forests/trails
  • Sports Stadiums!
  • Dams
  • Lantern Press (originals, not zazzle)
  • Anderson Design Group
  • Lali Riddle
  • Tudor royalty related
  • WW2 related
  • US state maps - i like collecting every type of design but I'd like more of ND, AK, RI.
  • montage of landmarks from a state with the state's name on the front (I have WA, ID, OR, GA, MD, PA)
  • all Hawaiian cards (they're sooo pretty)
  • Harry Potter anything
  • State Capitols
  • Disney: Beauty & the Beast, Lilo & Stitch, Aladdin, Little Mermaid, Moana!
  • Pixar: Brave, A Bug's Life, Up, Finding Nemo, Coco
  • mountains/volcanoes
  • Tarusov Pin ups (Game of Thrones, Disney)
  • cards about Scotland or Ireland
  • cards about Saratoga Springs, NY or Charleston, SC

. .

I'll also take Washington cards, even though I live here. I have a special box for all WA cards :) .

Cards I don't care for:

  • Art/Artists cards
  • Blurry zazzle cards (like where you can't read the writing)
  • Black & White - I love color!
  • Quote cards

of course if the swap calls for it, then it's ok.

Comment: Thanks for the great lighthouse card, Michelle! GREAT stamps and the post office didn't run cancellation over them which I was happy about. Is there a site where you can buy older unused postage stamps? If so, I've somehow missed it -- do tell please!
