My Name is Pam

ALT "AboutMe"

I'm a 45 y/o stay-at-home and work-at-home mom of four daughters and wife of 22 years. I love paper crafting and making wire jewelry. I love vintage and Parisian themes. I love butterflies, miniatures, and the colors pink, turquoise, coral, and dark tan. I love sending crafts more than I like writing letters. So, I probably wouldn't be a good candidate for a pen pal.

My girls are homeschooled so a typical day for me has lingering echos of the words "Mom" and "please". Paper crafting is my outlet. I like going to the park, popcorn movie nights at home, and dancing with my girls.

My household staples are essential oils, activated charcoal, apple cider vinegar, coconut oil, aloe vera juice, garlic, cayenne, and lemons. Oh yeah, and a little food. I've made my own skin products and I drink some of the above for good health.

I don't celebrate holidays or birthdays. #JW.Org


ALT "Swaps"

I take pride in sending out crafts that I've created in my handmade envies. If you don't receive a swap from me, please don't hesitate to message me before leaving a 1 rating. Most likely the package was lost in the mail. I will gladly and quickly resend. I have two Etsy stores where shipping is a priority. I will never overwhelm myself with swaps that I forget to send yours! I also snap a pic for proof until you rate. :)

ALT "rate"

what I pledged

Favorite Music

ALT "FavoriteMusic"

Since my daughter is learning the Korean language and culture, we listen to a lot of Korean Pop. I've learned to love it.

I also enjoy Rhythm & Blues, such as Leela James, Kevin Ross, and old school Disco, Pop, and Soul. My favorite all time oldie is 'Sara Smile' by Hall and Oates. My favorite song today is 'This One's For Me and You' by Johnny Gill featuring New Edition.

Favorite Books

ALT "FavoriteBooks"

I love to read the Bible. But I also enjoy books by Terri McMillan, Steve Harvey, and Tyler Perry.

Favorite Movies

ALT "FavoriteMovies"

I love to do my paper crafting while watching movies on Netflix. My favorite would have to be "Dorfman In Love". While I've watched it at least 20 times, I also love all the Fast & Furious movies as well as Tyler Perry's movies.

Favorite Television

ALT "FavoriteTVshows"

I love to laugh. I enjoy situation comedies the best. The Office, Til Death, and Still Standing are among my favorites. But I also like girly types such as Gilmore Girls, Heartland, Jane the Virgin, and Gossip Girl.

Favorite Crafts

ALT "FavoriteCrafts"

I watch YouTube videos like they're movies. If I love a particular craft, I will make it like it's going out of style. With that said, I'm still making envelopes, mini file folders, flip books, altered note cards, and pocket letters. I also enjoy my first love of wire wrapping.

ALT "do not send"

Please don't send the following things: religious, holiday, birthday, dark, magical, mythical, wiccan, ghost, alien, patriotic, nudity. This includes the holy cross, angels, angel wings, USA flags, unicorns, fairies, smurfs, Harry Potter, and all things Halloween.

My family and I are highly allergic to cigarette smoke. If you're a smoker, please message me if you get me for a swap. No judgment--to each, his own.

Please don't send food or drink items.

Also, don't send useless 'junk' crafts as raks, (example: a wooden tongue depressor wrapped in washi with my name spelled out in alpha stickers.) I don't like magazine clippings or tags unless they are incorporated into a craft.

Thanks for being considerate of this. We all put a lot of time into our crafts and wouldn't want any to be thrown out because of disregarding our "dislikes".

Comment: Hello Pam! You most certainly spoiled me! (Lucky me!) I LOVE the postalettes!!! I got some like this in a swap and loved them but could never find them! I used them but always hoped to find some more.... then came you! Thanks so very much! I find my postalettes on line or in thrift stores. Ebay has some good ones but they want more than I want to pay lol! I’d love to send some postalettes to you if you’re interested. I tend to hoard stationary and paper goods too! You went above and beyond for this swap. You really made my day! Thanks so much!
