Cool washi tape
Cool quilting fabrics
Etsy wishlist ($5 & under)
USA Happy Mail group

I'm a mailbox addict from way back (anyone remember all the cool toys you could order from the backs of cereal boxes?), so I'm here to help keep snail-mail alive. I've "met" some wonderful people here and consider them friends. With that said, I try to put a bit of care and thought into swaps and encourage the same.

I send on time and rate the same day swaps are picked up from the post office. As far as hearts go, I give them for TPG: thoughtfulness (yours), presentation (yours), and giddiness (mine). I don't need extras with swaps since I'm in a constant state of downsizing. But if I send you extras, it's because I have something I think you can use (i.e., you're helping me downsize). I love decorated envies, especially when they feature your artwork. It's mostly USA swaps for me.

Note: I'm allergic to cigar/ette smoke, and anything dusty gets me sneezing, too. So if you're a smoking swap partner or are contemplating sending me some dusty musties, please help a girl out by airing everything before mailing. I'd do it for you. :-)

Thank you so much for thinking of me with the February WW birthday card - so sweet of you!

tcornell on Feb 11, 2019:

Thank you so much for the Sandra Vargas art postcard (Little Red Riding Hood!!!) from my Etsy favs list. I've been wanting that card for some time now, but can never justify buying a single card for myself like that. It's my favorite, perhaps I will get a frame for it... You really made my day, thank you! Wonderful Wishes February

IsadoraWing on Feb 10, 2019:

Hello Donna! Thank you so much for the birdie, bug, and critter ephemera in the WW group! And the washi bits! They will probably all get used next month at art night. I really appreciate it. :)
