About Me

Feb 2020 - slowing down in my swapping for a few months while I work on some projects.

I'm 57 years old, married for 28 years and still madly in love with my honey. We have two grown daughters, 2 grandsons, and 1 dog (Benny).

I always rate and I always send. If you don't receive something from me, please let me know and I can resend. I will do the same as this is a courtesy we all prefer.

I'm fascinated with junk and art journals. Love to see them and have just started making my own. I'm also making Zines and ATCs and love to see what others make.

My hobbies:

Reading, books, visiting bookstores, reading about books, libraries, museums. I love most things books and mail related (authors, stamps, bookstores, libraries, etc).

I love to travel and collect postcards wherever I go. I usually will do a postcard travel journal after I return home.

Comment: Thank you so much for the postcard. The Beauty and the Beast stamp is AWESOME!
Comment: So confused why you put so much postage on this postcard, but I love the postcard and the stamps that you used. The illustration + windmills is just altogether lovely! Thank you
Response: I think I may have accidentally put postage on the card thinking it was going overseas as I was doing some different swaps. That's the only reason I can think why there would be extra on there. Glad you liked the windmill card. It was one of my favorites.
Comment: Thanks for some fun goodies! :D ^^

Comment: Thank you Jackie for the cute note cards, postage stamp, heart extras, and stickers. My favorite items were the unique heart stickers. I haven't seen anything like the creative imaginations stickers. And, the watercolor looking mini heart stickers are super cool. They will be quite useful! Happy Valentine's Day to you! I appreciate your generous 💓.
