About Me

Important Message!!!

I am fortunate to be able to go and spend 10 days on the Oregon Coast with friends. I will be gone from June 3rd through June 12th.

My plan is to have all swaps completed before I go. I will rate everyone that sends me a swap while I am gone upon my return. I will try to get that done as soon as possible.

I will have access to Swap Bot while I’m away. I will try to check in as often as I can. Please wait for me to return if you have any questions or concerns. I promise to take care of any issues when I return.

Thank you!!


I like to read, make junk journals, altered books, my own hand-made ephemera from cut-outs, scraps of paper, ribbon, buttons and more. I am a devoted YouTuber. I follow quite a few channels, but love checking out documentaries and other channels that catch my eye.

There are many authors that I like to read. the list keeps growing as I discover new authors.

I love retirement; no money to travel anywhere but can do so through Postcrossing, YouTube, books and now Swap-Bot.

I love animals, especially cats; big cats and domesticated cats. I also am fond of birds and cows. I collect USA postage stamps for the most part, but now also collect stamps worldwide.

Collections Fenton Milk Glass Fenton Cat and other animal figurines Salt and Pepper Shakers Post Cards Books by my favorite authors (Robert B. Parker, John Sanford, Jonathan Kellerman, Stephen King, Dean Koontz, James Patterson, Michael Connelly, Iris Johansen, Victoria Holt, and quite a few more. Depression Glass Elegant Glass Journals (all kinds)

My favorite color is green. All greens, everything green. As a young girl my favorite color was Cobalt Blue primarily, but then again it was all blue, everything blue. The thing is I love color, all color. It's hard to choose. There's yellow and red and black and purple...all truly beautiful.

I will follow through with every swap I join. I am dependable, reliable, honest, happy, trustworthy, hard-working. I love life and am grateful for every second, every minute that I am given. I want to be the best that I can be and I want to never stop learning and striving to be better. I make mistakes but I try to learn by those mistakes and move on.

Sincerely Alma

Comment: I can see the effort you put into your first attempt at zines. As you mentioned in your message, you've seen that they are typically a one sheet project. I hope you'll keep trying to make zines. They can be very fun.
Comment: The postcards have arrived and will continue on their journey (note: the swap says to send up to 3 postcards and you sent 4). I appreciate the playing cards! Take care.
Comment: Thank you for the awesome cards & extras!
Comment: Thank you for the menu and fortunes!
Response: You are welcome. Hugs. Hope you are having a great day!
