UPDATE - I am taking the summer off from crafting. I love to spend my free time during the summer months enjoying the lovely outdoors! So I will see you all in September when I will be back in 'full crafting mode'! Happy Crafting Lovies! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
My name is Justene and I am 47 years old. I live in southern Ontario, Canada & I am married to my bestest friend in the whole world. I have 3 wonderful sons who are my pride and joy and the light of my life. I have a beautiful two-year old granddaughter who is our little ray of pure sunshine!
I love animals & have the cooooolest cat. He's an orange tabby named Frankie who loves his humans and is spoiled to bits.
I work full-time outside my home and look sooo forward to getting home and diving into my crafting. I love mixed media arts, scrapbooking, card making & all things paper!
I LOVE mailart - I love to decorate all my envies and also love to receive decorated mail. Life's too short to mail anything in a plain white envelope! Be bold! Decorate that envie!
I love all things vintage! Papers, ephemera, ribbons, buttons, textiles, books, book covers, antique door knobs, vintage clothing, old journals, photo frames, vintage imagery & postcards. I love the distressed and shabby chic style....so all things Tim Holtz are wonderful!
I love photography and take lots & lots of pictures. I try to scrapbook my most special photos and am in the midst of doing scrapbooks for my three sons, as well as my granddaughter.
I love going to art festivals, museums & flea markets....and bringing home treasure troves of goodies to use in my crafting.
I have flower gardens as well as a wonderful vegetable garden and a small herb garden. Tending to & spending time in my gardens is something I look forward to in the nice weather. I like to preserve my vegetables in the fall....canned tomatoes, beets, tomato sauce, pickles, salsa, string beans....yum!
I have a slight affinity for the darker side of things....nothing too dangerous, just a little twisty! Things like mythology, fairy tales, legends, dark themes, surreal, bizarre, mystical & magical, enchantment, Halloween, paranormal, steampunk, gothic, tarot, creepy, & creepy-cute!

CHOCOLATE! Love love love chocolate! Love to try all different types of chocolate from all over this wonderful planet. Especially love Xocia healthy chocolate! There's nothing better than a good friend, except a good friend with CHOCOLATE!
♥ I've recently started collecting postcards. I joined PostCrossing.com which is a wonderful network to exchange postcards! I like the idea of collecting postcards & postage stamps from all over the world... the kind that are written on and dated and stamped by the post office. Not only for the postcard itself, but for the soul that was connected to it, and the different hands that have touched it, and the different eyes that have read it on its wonderful journey to my little corner of the world.
I would love to receive postcards that represent the country or area where you live. Traditional customs, architecture, street views, houses, people, animals, art & quirky items. I also love hand-made by you -- your ideas, your inspiration, your creativity!
More postcard favourites:
Vintage ● Artsy ● Whimsical ● Romantic ● Moomins ● Jetoy Cats ● Churches ● Castles ● UNESCO World Heritage Sites ● Cities at night ● The Pyramids ● Steampunk ● Alice in Wonderland ● Winnie The Pooh ● Children's Literary Classics ● Cats ● Elephants ● Polar Bears ● Gorillas
I'd also love to receive postcards of the New Seven Wonders of the World:
The Great Wall of China ● Petra in Jordan ● Brazil's statue of Christ the Redeemer ● Peru's Machu Picchu ● Mexico's Chichen Itza Pyramid ● The Colosseum in Rome ● India's Taj Mahal
Please, no free-ad or multi-view postcards. Also, I prefer naked postcards (no envelopes) with hand-written messages & pretty postage-stamps! Thank you!
