About Me

Hi! I am 49, mother of two and married. I am new to swapping fb's but not new to Pen Pals. I love trading stickers (remember sticker stores?), trading Art of any kind and snail mail. I love paper, stationery and envelopes. I am also a people person and miss connecting with others in the real world.

I stayed home to raise my children, now they are 16 and 18. I have also been a photographer and an artist for the last 20 years. I tried digital photography and yes it's a cool medium but I love film. I collect old photos which I find in Antique Shops.

I am willing to write and answer or swap with anyone. I would love to trade letters, post cards, Stickers, Decos and FB's.

I am a paper, fiber and art enthusiast. I can't go a day without creating something. Even if it is just a small doodle on the phone pad! Hope to hear from you!

I love: Paper, Collage, Stickers, Post Cards, Concert Flyers, 1970s, Stamps, Stationery, anything Art

Music I like: Anything, I have an open mind

I can: Cook, Clean like a Demon, Sew (hand and machine), take a photo and develop a b&w negative, crochet, knit, collage, change a baby's diaper-give it a bottle-and put that baby to sleep.

Favorite Crafts

Likes: Paper, photos (old and new!), pen pals, Japanese art papers, Origami paper---I am paper obsessed.

Stickers, Washi Tape, anything that sticks on paper!

Postal Stamps, Notecards, Envelopes (both blank and used envelopes), Post Cards

Purples, Blues, Greens, Ocean themes, Forest themes, Clouds, Rainbows, Kawaii, Sanrio

Vintage themed anything, Roses, vintage floral, Angels

Dislikes:

I pretty much love almost anything. If it's related to Swapping, Art or Crafts, I love it!

I also love anything Alice in Wonderland.

Comment: Hi Aurora! 👋 Thanks so much for this Edward Gorey PC. & for your list of junk foods. I’m not a Choco-holic 🍫, but I do love ❤️ red velvet cupcakes which are a bit similar to chocolate. I saw a recipe in a holiday cooking magazine that was for red velvet waffles - I nearly drooled on it the pic was so good. 🍭 take care ;)
Response: You are so welcome! Happy holidays and be well, Aurora

Comment: I LOVE the ATCs you made! And thank you for the extra goodies! The stamping is so neat and crisp, yet vintage looking and I admire the gold and silver subtle glitter. What did you use if you don't mind me asking?
Response: Omg! Thank you for rave review. Will you remind me what ATCs I sent you? For the coloring I use Light Bodied Acrylics (Amazon) and inks, from Amazon also. I use glitter y inks in golds and silvers. Oh also the acrylics come in subtle glitters! Message me for more if you like, Aurora
