About Me


IMPORTANT! I’ve had two stamped envelopes come back to me this week needing additional postage. I have a shipping scale and use the postal website to calculate the cost. My scale is pretty old. I bought it almost 10 years ago. And up until now I’ve never had an issue of insufficient postage. (See my ratings) If you receive a letter from me needing additional postage, PLEASE let me know. I’ll immediately reimburse you the $. Either by sending you new forever stamps or the cash.
Send me a photo of the front of the envelope to my email and I’ll make it right. I currently have 2 swaps I’m in that this may have happened to.

πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ A HUGE thank you to Dragonflydreamer for being so helpful. 3 years later and it’s finally up thanks to you.

Do you like to make junk journals? I recently discovered a seller on Etsy who sells beautiful hand dyed papers using many different colors as well as tea and coffee to create her gorgeous paper. I encourage you to check her out. Her store name is: Dark Woods Sanctuary

Favorite Crafts


My favorite crafts.

Love most anything to do with paper crafting and mixed media.
I especially enjoy creating flip books, pocket letters, embellished tags, book marks, ATC’s, and handmade envelopes. Newly tinkering around with altering wood boxes and ceramic pots for my orchids with a vintage or shabby chic style.

I also like: Stamping Drawing Watercoloring & acrylic paints Photography (my last career) Altering anything- mixed media

My likes; Teacups, tea pots, rainbows, butterflies, nautical, koi fish, goldfish, flowers, Ivy, trees and gardens. Anything to do with a gardening. Shovels, watering cans, white picket fences, flowers, clay pots etc.

Themes and styles: Eclectic Favorite is Nautical and Shabby chic Also like vintage, florals, cutesy.

Colors: Love all colors. Favorites are cobalt blue, darker metallic blue, yellow, black and white.

Absolutely love all metals and metallic. Copper is my favorite.

I’m working on my handmade journals. One will be an art journal and the other one for adding little bits of this and that of my favorite things.

I recently dyed my own paper using colored dye, tea and coffee. If anyone would like some of my dyed papers, let me know. I’m happy to share πŸ’™

πŸ’œ Items I can always use or would enjoy receiving

Glassine envelopes. Any size

Love gummy candy. Especially Haribo. Also any fruity chewy or hard candies. I do like chocolate of course, but not dark

Metal embellishments and charms.

Old jewelry that’s broken. I can use it in my mixed media projects - turn trash into treasure :)

Vintage - antique Fabric scraps, Lace, Crocheted Doilies or similar to those. Illustrated book pages. Especially ones in color. Paper clay Polymer clay Hemp cord/string. Waxed cotton cord. Seed beads
20 gauged jewelry wire in any color. Head pins Jewelry clasps. Any size.

Fuzzy socks or slippers - medium or OS. Non toxic nail polish Natural facial moisturizer

Office supplies. Large gold paper clips or multi colors in any size Page flags Bookmark handmade or not Mechanical pencils (odd obsession) Cutesy or fancy pens Little purse sized notebooks Note/greeting cards. Blank or thank you

Other likes : Love blown glass. I have a snail, dolphin, paperweight with tropical fish and a very generous swapper gave me a beautiful glass starfish.

I love miniature anything. I have these things in my curio: Miniature Japanese food, shopping cart, purse, basket of roses, orchids, and a teeny tiny blown glass snail, and two adorable stuffed animals in a bunny and Bear. Just because I may already have it doesn’t mean I wouldn’t want another... :)

Dislikes and no thank you ~ Themed children’s stickers or teacher reward type stickers. I no longer Scrapbook. I’ve completely switched over to Project Life and mostly traditional albums. Please do not send me stickers for scrapbooking for babies, kids milestones, kids sports, school years, or wedding photos. I do not have nor do i want a wedding album. Not my thing.
