About Me

Profile edited: February 2021.

I am Beth from Oregon, USA. I'm married with no children. Sadly, we had to say goodbye to our little furry feline who brought us joy and a little bit of fur. =^..^=

I am a born-again Christian, a follower of Jesus Christ.

Random things I enjoy:

  • Rock/mineral hunting on beaches and "in the middle of nowhere.”
  • Getting together with friends for fellowship and card games.
  • Doing jigsaw puzzles.
  • Organizing my craft room.
  • Keeping the lost art of letter writing alive by writing to my pen pals all over the world.
  • "Treasure hunting" at thrift stores, garage sales, and estate sales, and finding cool paper crafting or letter writing items.
  • Receiving colorful snail mail in decorated envelopes (white ones are so boring!)
  • Sending colorful snail mail to brighten up someone’s day!
  • Song birds singing their sweet songs.
  • Meeting other Christians who enjoy my love of paper arts and/or writing letters.
  • Cats (meow!)

Favorite Crafts

I LOVE playing with pretty papers, stamps, pens, markers, washi tape, etc. I use them to make cards and envelopes for swapping, writing to my pen pals, and for encouraging/brightening up the lives of others with “a handmade card sent to them via snail mail.” FAVORITE THEMES: Flowers 🌸 , song birds, cats 🐈, dragonflies, snails 🐌 (whimsical only), tea/coffee, postal, or pen pal related 🖊.

FAVORITE COLORS: All the happy, colorful ones! As for metallics, I prefer gold or copper over silver.

Wish List

  • UNUSED USA POSTAGE: Vintage (the kind you have to lick or glue to seal) or the current self stick kind.
  • ADDRESS LABELS: With my address on them. Homemade works!
  • FLAT STICKERS: In my preferred themes above; I especially love colorful flowers. Please do not send dimensional stickers.
  • STARBUCKS gift card, for a coffee or other treat every once in awhile.
  • TEA: green tea varieties (jasmine, toasted rice, and other "earthy" ones); I enjoy tropical additives (figs, pineapple, etc.). I like oolong tea. For herbal, lavender is nice. (Please see my tea dislikes below.)

Don’t Care to Receive

We all have our own likes and what you like might not necessarily be what I like. Below is a list of themes or items that just aren’t my thing.

  • Halloween, the Santa side of Christmas
  • Loose glitter, or cards with glitter that shakes off a card and gets all over the place.
  • Mustaches, circus, Hello Kitty, Disney, cartoony, Asian, creepy/crawly bugs or insects, snakes
  • Scented items: Perfume, lotions, incense, candles, make-up
  • Postcards
  • Tourist items (e.g. blank postcards, magnets & keychains)
  • Chipboard embellishments
  • Tea in these flavors: plain mint, plain lemon, tea that brews up red in color (it’s usually heavy on hibiscus and it’s too tart for me), licorice. I don’t care for rooibus tea, nor black tea.


I always send out my swaps and usually it's very soon after partners are assigned. If for some reason you do not receive a swap from me, please send me a PM or an e-mail before rating me poorly and I will do the same for you. If the swap got lost, I will resend it.

I will rate upon receiving your swap or shortly thereafter. I would appreciate you doing the same for me.

Beth, Thank YOU and your sweet husband for the thought of sending everyone some stamped scriptures! What a lovely surprise, and just perfect timing (God's timing, I know) as I'm heading into surgery on Friday and will certainly have some time when I get home to put them to good use!! Thanks, too for the lovely paper.....feels like Spring, and I love the hand made envelope and all the different stamps. They'll all be put to good use in future projects. Give your hubby a BIG HUG

LadyJo on Nov 12, 2020:

Thank you for the wonderful washi for the CF RAK! It came today on my birthday, so it was extra special! I will enjoy making lots of happy mail with it. It looks like it might be a long winter, so I am glad to send out lots of mail!

hollycm6 on Nov 11, 2020:
