Hello from Angie

Hello, I'm Angie.

Generate your own library card


I like playing with collage, mixed media, hand carving rubber stamps, buying rubber stamps, owning more paper than I can ever use, playing with my gelli plates, Sizzix die cutting machine and yeah, I like all that stuff and more.

I love that mailart has exposed me to many different styles, many different artists, many different perspectives.

I like exchanging naked handmade postcards and I usually do 5 x 7 inches in size. I find that size offers enough space to experiment while still being affordable to mail to someone. I like the postcards naked so the address, postage stamps and other postal markings are part of the piece.

I also make a lot of ATCs. I meet with a local group to exchange ATCs monthly.



I like ...

  • Dogs (I have a Pembroke Welsh Corgi and 2 Pekingese)
  • Clowns
  • Zebras and horses
  • Favorite color - orange
  • ATCs made by YOU (I love them)
  • Ephemera
  • Science Fiction
  • Rubber stamps
  • Naps


* Life Aquatic with Steve zissou - all of it but especially Claus, the submarine thingy, the ship profile, Eleanor
* Red Violin
* Star Trek - DS9 (Kira, Captain Sisko), NG - Enterprise D
* [Survivor] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Survivor(U.S.TV_series)) - Tikis, immunity necklaces and Jeff Probst
* Jason Bourne - Matt Damon as Bourne
* Firefly - Mel, Inara, Jayne, the ship, all of it
* Princes Bride - the movie
* Vanity Faire with Reese Witherspoon
* Spaced - British Television series
* Dawn of the Dead (2004), Shaun of the Dead, World War Z, Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead, 28 Days later, 28 weeks later, and most things apocalyptic.


* Kate Grenville's colonial Australia trilogy about the first three generations of white settlement in Australia, and what that shared black/white history means for contemporary Australians. (The Secret River, The Lieutenant and Sarah Thornhill. )
* The Perfect Red by Amy Butler Greenfield
* Currently reading: The Last Painting of Sara de Vos by Dominic Smith

* Joseph Cornell assemblages --
* Paul Klee -
* Thylacine or Tasmanian Tiger
* Scion xB - 2nd generation, my car is black
* Bjork - Favorite song is Dull flame of desire that she sings with Anohni Hegarty.
* I enjoy getting hand made pieces. I will love anything you make yourself.

If you look at my Flickr photos or my Flickr favorites you'll get an idea of my eclectic tastes. I'm not easily offended but please don't try (to offend me). I just mean that I'm pretty open minded.



I run (or help run) 4 groups with the help of some great officers.

Comment: I love the PC of Snooky! Thank you! Canuck has gotten himself a summer job at the PNE this year. They are actually paying him a wage but it will be donated to a local animal clinic. There is always something going on here. Lol.
Comment: Thanks for the fun PC Angie!
Comment: Your postcard is beautiful! I love the textures and the colors. It's so summery!

Comment: Loved it, as I always do. Looks very vintage. Thank you
Comment: Your PC is really beautiful. I don't own rubber stamps that large. I am very impressed.
Comment: Hello, many thanks for the awesome happy vintage couple stepping out ATC! I love how you've put everything together - you really do have a gift of artistic composition and pulling together many different elements into a fantastic whole. I had your mailing stashed away with other great mail art to savor during a weekend trip and had forgotten to rate first. Thanks for your note and the artistamps on the envie, too.
Lilpurplepig rated for HMPC: Put a "Dog" on it on Jun 29, 2017
Comment: Loved the PC. The dog on it looks like my moms dog Lil Man. I always love when he comes to visit. He is such a sweetie. Thank you for hosting this great swap.

Comment: Lucky me you're my swap partner again! I like the style of your postal postcard: the color wash with the black rubber stamping really shows off the postal images. Thanks for a Good Mail Day!

Comment: Love this! As an avid reader, I can especially appreciate the book quotes. It's too bad that kids don't remember the fun of the card catalog drawers - and the way they smelled. What I would give to find one of those cabinets someday! Thanks so much and thanks for hosting this swap!

graciepie49 rated for CC: Cat ATC on Jun 11, 2017
Comment: Hi Angie :-) . . . . Thanks for your darling Cat ATC. I left you a message about owning a cat since it is a bit long winded. I think it is so cute how you decorated the envelope with kitty stickers on the front but put a dog sticker on the back.

Comment: Love my horsey cards,,the girl on the zebra made me laugh...very creative,,thanks for the note and I am doing somewhat better..
crescendo rated for JUNKIES: Shaker ATC on May 28, 2017
Comment: I love it! I've never seen glitter like those stars you used. They seem perfect for this, not too thick so they don't get stuck, and makes a lovely sound, shake shake shake. Haha the ladies in the polka dotted caps reminds me of the hairdryers we used when we were little where you put the whole cap on your head. I hope it has warmed up so you don't have to shiver while doing yard work! I can see getting addicted to making these. I just like listening to it, somehow it is soothing, like a baby's rattle! Wait, do babies still use rattles?!?
