About Me

I'm 62 years old, married for almost 33 years and still madly in love with my honey. We have two grown daughters, 2 grandsons, and 1 dog (Benny) and 1 black cat (Max).

We live in a Minneapolis/St Paul suburb and love it here! Mounds View is a suburb of St Paul so either city works for my mail.

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 originally from North Dakota. I've lived in Minnesota for over 30 years. We still have friends and relatives in ND and visit them when we can.

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. I also love Label Bags. If you swap LBs and get my name for any swap, please feel free to include LBs.

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 also enjoy doing genealogy, scrapbooking, rubber stamping and making ATCs, cards, booklets, junk journals.

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

I love mail, writing letters, fun/unique stamps, Steampunk, mail art, whales, Moomins, pens, typewriters, Cows, and Polar Bears.

Looking for Used Postage Bag swaps.

Favorite Books

So many but I will list some that come to mind:

Project Hail Mary, Station Eleven, All the Light We Cannot See, Night Circus, Less: A Novel, Green Mile, Hobbit, The Stand, The Big Year, Practical Magic

Favorite Crafts

Junk Journals - Love making these junk journals for friends, swaps, and myself. Currently working on a Space Junk Journal for me. Would love note paper, stickers, Washi, stamped images, postcards, used stamps or something else if it has to do with any of the following (I may have missed some, but you get the idea):

Space, Moon, Milky Way, Astronaut, NASA, Astronomy, Hubble, Mars, Moon Landings, Cows, Polar Bears

Favorite Movies

How to Frame a Figg, The Ghost and Mr. Chicken, Jaws, The Big Year, Star Trek, My Neighbor Totoro, Howl's Moving Castle, Final Countdown, Margaret Rutherford Miss Marple movies


I prefer to receive postcards naked and stamped,especially with fun stamps (large, colorful, different, multiple, etc)

Zeppelins, Underwater, Snoopy/Peanuts Whales, Antarctica, Witches, Steampunk, Explorers, Astronomy/Hubble/Space, Typewriters, fog, rain, extreme weather, storms, Letters/Stamps/Mail/Mailbox

Postage Stamps

I like fun stamps! Large, unique, whimsical. I also collect by topic:

Zeppelins, Covid (Masks) Books, Authors, Bookstores, Libraries, Witches, Antarctic, Snow/Snowy scenes, Explorers, Scientists, Whales, Cows, Planetariums, Space, Planets, Astronauts, Scientists,

Response: Hello Pitchmom. I'm sorry you didn't receive this and wished you had messaged me directly instead of rating a 1. I scanned the resend which went out as soon as I found out you hadn't received this postcard.

Comment: Thank you for the used post cards -- the bookish ones are so neat I just might find a way to reuse them -- a covering of paint, or something.

I received yet another item in the mail from you even after I rated for Happy Mailbox all month March 23. A Christmas card with stickers (love it) and also the most beautiful butterfly I have ever gotten. Its 3D. I have it proudly displayed on my fireplace mantle for all to see. Once warm enough, I will plant the bachelor button seeds you sent. Again,,a HUGE thank-you for all you have done to bring happiness to me. I am wishing you a very happy Easter.

Thank you for being the ONLY person in the Int’l Stamp Collectors group who actually returned my postage stamp bags. I made over a dozen bags in the time I was part of the group but have only received two back and they’re both from you! I 💙 your honesty! A million thanks!!! (P.S. Awesome idea to coordinate your own swaps in USA only. I image all my other bags are lost overseas. sad).
