About Me

---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.

Favorites Color: violet and green Drink: bundaberg ginger beer and limeaide Flower: lily and rose Movie: murder on the orient express & the original star wars Scents: lavender, sage, tangerine Season: winter and spring Tea: jasmine, green tea, herbal, fruity Time: I am a morning person

Hobbies/Interests Paper-crafts& Stationary, Board games & puzzles, Cooking/baking, Documentaries, Fountain pens, Nature photos, Tea, Travel to warm climates, Walks, Swimming, Coloring for Adults

Favorite Crafts

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.

Places to Travel

Warm climates. I have traveled to Jamaica, Mexico, Hawaii, Belize, Cuba, and St. Lucia

On the lookout/needs

On the lookout for an old LawnFawn Stamp and die set called: You’ve Got Mail new or used and My Cup of Tea. Rubbernecker Stamps watercolor flowers and African American woman stamps. Butterfly stencil. Foam tape. Marbled sealing wax (flexible). Sequin (the kind without a hole in the middle) all colors and iridescent.

I am always open to new pen pals (US or International) who enjoys card making and inspiring each other by sharing cards and happy mail.

Re: Getting to Know You Hi. I sent an email instead of putting the note down here. Sorry, I'm still learning this format. Have a great day.

Hi! I'm excited to be a part of this new paper crafting group with you. I just love making new things with paper and being creative. Like you, I also like card making, but I need more practice, I'm just starting out. It's such a great idea to enclose goodies in them and send them in swaps! Can't wait to swap with you in our new group. For: getting to know you--Addicted to Paper group.

Hi there - very nice to meet you.

I see you enjoy a lot of paper crafting as I do with the exception of scrapbooking.... I am more of a journal, cards, pockets, unusual paper items type of gal. I have polymer clay and tools in my craft closet but have not yet played with it.... looking forward to it. I too love warm climates and traveling to Jamaica, Mexico, and Belize. I have found St. Thomas to be beautiful as well. I have not yet made it to Hawaii but it is on my bucket list.

I look forward to swapping with you.

For Getting to know you swap.
