Favorite Crafts

12-18-2023 I am looking forward to 2024 and hope to grow in character and virtue, I plan to focus more on my new 2024 journal endeavors, use my weekend free time to answer my pen pal letters. enjoy the grandkids, get out more in nature, do some bible study, and continue my worldwide postage stamp collection. Please message me if you have ideas for a private swap. If you are looking for a new pen pal send me a message. I answer every letter received!

I like all sorts of postcards for my collection, including recipe, tourist, art, weird, map cards, vintage, photo, multi view, free ad and handmade postcards.

Aesthetic stickers and flora and fauna and nature stickers are some of my favorite things to collect and use in swaps and RAKs or pen pal letters.

My journal interests are decorated envelopes, recipes. quotes. bible study, reading, glue book. and year 2 of my 5 year diary. I don't write in all of them every day and they are all carried over from 2022 and through 2023. I love writing about little things or quick ideas and inspirations!

I collect U.S. and worldwide mint and used postage stamps, interesting postmarks and First Day Covers. If you send those along in your envelop that would be a bright spot in my day

I recently started a junk journal collection of decorated envelopes. It would be nice if you prettied up the front of the envelope before mailing. Just a thought!

About Me

We have an orange and a brown tabby who rule the household and we love them!

I would like to tell everyone that if you get flaked on in any swap, that I would enjoy sending you whatever you missed, so message me and I will send you something!

You will find me reading, walking, beginning weight lifting, journaling, pen paling, growing and baking sour dough, looking up at the sun and moon and stars, and eating chocolate!

Thank you to all who helped me to complete my collection of 50 U.S. map postcards and covers. Now I am starting to collect a postmark from every country in the world on an envelope or a postcard.

Please note I do not accept food items. Also please no mini stickers.
