Wugly,
I got mail in a plastic fish once, a yellow one with a makeshift name label taped to it. What an awesome experience, not to mention an unusual coincidence!

Well, I have been following this thread for a while, and have tried to write a decent profile.
I am a 20 year old girl living in Norway, about 15 minutes drive south of Oslo, the capital. I live with my younger sister, my dad, my stepmom and our cat Achilles. This summer I will be moving to Copenhagen, Denmark with my boyfriend. I am going to study architecture at the Royal Danish Academy of Art.

The crafts I do are mostly sewing and knitting, but I also enjoy making jewelry, soap, cards and giftwrapping.I have alot of interests, including crafts, interior and furniture design, yoga, music, films, travelling, reading, and learning. I have always been interested in what is happening around me, I'm reading newspapers to keep up with the world and to unconsciously collect random trivia. I would also consider myself a liberal feminist, as many of those who have written before me.

I would like penpals from anywhere around the world and of all ages, about 2 is okay for me too.

Hi, Everybody.  I've been lurking on craftster for awhile, but had to register when I saw this topic and saw the deadline for this "swap" is today!  I've always wanted a pen pal too. 

OMG, you all make me feel old.  hahaha  I'm creeping up an 40 in a few years, and in June I'll have my 19th anniversary.  (Yes, I got married when I was way too young, but it seemed like a good idea at the time.)   Wink  I have a soon to be teenage son and an eleven year old daughter.  I've lived in MN almost all of my pretty "sheltered" life.  I guess that makes me liberal in politics, but conservative about sharing my opinions.  I can swear when I'm in a temper, but I can curb it too.  When I proofread my writing I'm amazed at how often I write something like, "I do not swear too often" instead of "I don't swear too often."  I try to spell things correctly, use proper punctuation and proper grammar even when I'm ranting.  Unfortunately(?) I also write with a lot of smileys because my sense of humor can be quite sarcastic too. 

I have a degree in Communications (so I'd love to communicate with anybody), but I work as a tech support provider in my daughter's school.  That's full time.  I also work part time at a musical theatre and on Monday I'll start another part time job at Kinko's.  I'm looking forward to "leftovers" there too.  I like paper crafts and sewing, but I'm new to it all.  My "crafty" grandma died when I was little and my mom wasn't crafty at all.   I begged for a sewing machine for years and finally got one (because it was free) a couple of years ago.  I'm learning and trying to teach my daughter.  She's loved "projects" since she was three, and she taught herself to knit with a book I gave her for Christmas.  I've been her Girl Scout troop leader for the last several years.  We're getting out of that though.  (My co-leader drives me crazy -  for two years there's been a girl in our troop named Lindsey and my co-leader still calls her "Leslie.") 

I love to read, but don't have much time to do it what with work and being a mom and cooking and cleaning (I hate housework, but lately I've found myself cleaning my kitchen if I have time to get bored) and etc.  I love all kinds of music.  Nat King Cole, No Doubt, Rosemary Clooney, Red Hot Chili Peppers, James Taylor, some U2, even some Patsy Cline.  (I like some country, but more bluegrass and artists that could be "crossover", not redneck, knee-jerk patriotic crap.)  Lately I've been listening to Madeline Peyroux and Maroon 5 and Dean Martin and Paul Simon and Louis Armstrong.  Would you say that's eclectic or all over the map?   Smiley

I'd like to write to two or three people (maybe more?) and I'd be willing to send things internationally.  Write on!    Grin

 Grin  Oh yeah, you're OLD>>>>>NOT!!!!  I'm 54, so 40 is young to me!  Shoot, I had to change my account because I misspelled my user name...

I've read through this thread, but I'm not really clear on where it is with the actual swap.  And is there an option on here to PM others?  Clueless, sometimes I'm just clueless...I went to the local art emporium and looked at some stuff to send but didn't buy any because I'm still trying to figure out who I'm going to hook up with.

I can't believe that you got a yellow plastic fish - that was the color that I used to used.  I also filled one with info and put it in the wall of the house I owned at the time.  There were pictures of me, my little sister (like big brothers for men) and some info about the house.

I'm ready to get started on this - I haven't done mail art for about 15 years, actually.  I think I was too depressed or something...I used to send stuff to my Mom all the time.  She took all my envelopes and entered them in the state fair - she got a blue ribbon because she was the only one who entered in that category, LOL.  When she died I found her book of my stuff so now I have it.

I also love the DADA stuff - most of them (all men as far as I know) were the ones that started the modern art movement.  Using "found" objects, etc.  The huge collection of rubber stamps I own are almost all "art stamps" with the wierd definitely the emphasis...when rubber stamping was really big, around 10 years ago, there were a number of stamp stores here in Denver, but I rarely bought anything because they tended to waaaaay favor "cute" over "wierd".  More general appeal, I guess.

Wugly, I too, am impressed that you drive (or drove) a big rig.  I've often thought about doing that 'cause I love to see new places, but ... maybe when my kids leave the nest.  Where I live, rubber stamping is still pretty hot.  And scrapbooking.  (I'm not into it, but my sister-in-law is a big-wig exec for Creative Memories).  You're right about a lot of what's out there being too cutesy and not weird enough, though.  hahaha  I lived in Broomfield, CO for about six months when I was a newlywed.  Is Baby Doc's in Denver still open?

Indeed. You could really make some special letters. I send my boyfriend letters sometimes even though I see him everyday and he only lives about 10 minutes away. He really enjoys them and always writes back. I think I am going to send him a package next

Now the wintertime is coming,
The windows are filled with frost.
I went to tell everybody,
But I could not get across.
Well, I wanna be your lover, baby,
I don't wanna be your boss.
Don't say I never warned you
When your train gets lost.
