---SUMMER 2018 VACATION ALERT--- I will be away for vacation for a couple of weeks soon. I will not be near any electronic devices so I can relax and enjoy time with my family. I have sent all of my swaps. I was sure to send it at the post office to avoid any problems. However if I don't receive your items before my vacation, I will promptly rate when I return. Thanks for your patience.
I am a 40+ wife, mother, and career woman. I have two children. After several decades of working too much, I realized life is short and wanted to return to having creativity be a part of my life. So about 2 years ago I decided to purposely carve out time to be creative. I also wanted to connect with others. I worked on improving my hand writing and incorporated hand lettering into my creative life. Then I began letter writing and have about a dozen pen pals world wide (still looking for more, especially South America, Africa, Caribbean, Canada, and Asia). As I began to add creative elements into my letters I stumbled upon card making/paper crafts. I have been working on my card making skills for about about a year and really enjoy it. Instead of making greeting cards, I use my A2 cards as a package for my pen pal letters. I post photos of my cards on Pinterest.
I am a mom of two very amazing kids, a wife, and I work a bit more than full time in private practice serving individuals who have disabilities. I enjoy my spa days and lunch with friends. I feel blessed to have an amazing family, friends, and a great imagination and memories.

I enjoy paper crafts, specifically making cards to send to pen pals. I make a card and then enclose an envelope inside to tuck in a letter to a friend. I enjoy making tags but typically use them on cards. Homemade envelopes are great, especially if they are A2 size. I use die cuts, stamps, stickers, ribbon, color pencils, glitter, sealing wax, and other embellishments. My tools include color pencils, Cuttlebug, Stamping Platform, and envelope score board. I like to use anything postage or mail themed for my cards and to decorate my letters. I also like butterflies, owls, elephants, zebras, anything snail mail, things decorated with books, teacups/teapots, and flowers. I love tea cup die cuts because somehow I don't have a teacup die.
Warm climates. I have traveled to Jamaica, Mexico, Hawaii, Belize, Cuba, and St. Lucia
