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


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.

Fry rated for ATC int #9 - recycle scraps on Sep 24, 2020
Comment: Hello friend! I just have to say I love that gold striped paper. Its beautiful - and I am also stoked to see you used it on the ATC! That means that I can use the purple paper on projects because I get to keep a piece of it on this ATC! This one will be filed with my cards that contain bookpages. =) The smoke has been pretty bad here the last couple of weeks but the wind came through a few days ago and scrubbed the sky clean! Came back today though - couldnt see the Boise foothills. =( OH! And that twinchie! That is so cool! The gloss of the sleeve that covers it somehow adds to it somehow? Im a texture freak and this is nice! See ya!
Response: Thank you for so much praise! I just started doing twinchie. I thought it would be harder to come up with ideas but I found it actually easier. I think it's the small size. Thank you again, Aurora
Comment: thanks for the cool card and the Bad Company shout out - im going to try listening to them :)
Response: You're so welcome. Take care, Aurora.

Onaki rated for Art in an envelope: Halloween! (USA) on Sep 19, 2020
Comment: I enjoyed all of your items from this swap! You're very talented with your crafting. (Thank you for the TWO re-send since the first set wasn't Halloween related and the second envelope only had 1 Halloween art piece in it... The third envelope had the remaining ones. Try to read your swap's descriptions in the future to avoid this little mix up! :) )
Response: You are so welcome!
Comment: Thanks for the ATC! I collect cards that are handmade like this so thanks for the keepers! I recently joined a swap for a synopsis of a true crime story or unsloved mystery, that was cool! Have fun with the hell-hound! =)
Response: Thank you for the kind words and the heart! The hell-hound is having a good day! Take care, Aurora
Comment: Thanks for the postcard. Everything is "just" covered! The stamp smells good. Lol
Response: I'm happy to make you happy!
Comment: I love the ATCs you sent! The lady is so pretty, and the glittery details on her are cute! The gryphon is super cool! I love the moon phases in the gryphon's background! The extras that you included are super cute, too! Thank you so much!
Response: I'm so happy you enjoyed what I sent you! Take care and big hugs, Aurora
Comment: I absolutely love everything you sent! You clearly have the best sticker collection ever! Do you know what brand the paper with the celestial/medieval images is from? I love it! Thank you so much!
Response: Hi, try The Antiquarian Sticker Book from Amazon. It has amazing stickers, I've bought it twice. Violette Stickers, on Amazon are great too. I hope that helps. I also buy a lot of Washi stickers and they have great images. I think the paper images came from a ScrapBook 12 in x 12in pad that I found also on Amazon, when I looked up Fall scrapbook paper. I hope that helps! Take care, Aurora
