About Me

I always send swaps and rate as well! If you don't receive a rating, I didn't receive the swap as of yet or it was lost in the mail. I will contact the swap partner if I don't receive something in a months time, before I rate a bad rating. Life happens and this is to be a fun experience, not a stressful hobby.

f you don't receive a swap let me know before giving me a bad rating. I don't flake, so message me first!

I am a wife and mother to 3 children. I love living in a rural area. I enjoy reading, pen paling, collecting postcards, watching movies, cooking, and life in general.

I enjoy reading cozy mysteries, other mysteries, Christian fiction, cookbooks, self care books, flower/garden, travel and biographies.

I like to travel to see other small towns, lighthouses, covered bridges, the scenic area there. I also have enjoyed camping or staying at a cabin to explore the mountains.

I like collecting postcards from other places that show the person's town, historical place, flowers native to that area, scenic postcards, and local foods, lighthouses, snow capped mountains, covered bridges, famous buildings, and countryside, I like Lantern Press and Zazzle post cards as well! I like your homemade postcards as well. You can mail it naked or make a few so I can send them to others.

Favorite colors that I like: Bright Pink or Fushia, Lime Green, Sunshine Yellow, Purple, Navy, and Red,

Favorite room colors, I like cream, light brown, so I can accent it with a brighter color. Accent colors purple, reds, greens, blues, and yellows.

Favorite Crafts

I liked to do Mail art, mainly with washi tape, stickers, stamps, cut outs. I am exploring at getting more creative here.

I also enjoy doing glue books as well. I have the following themes, that I add too! Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer. Looking to expand into a Lighthouse Glue book, too!

I do a little with card making, sometimes handmade postcard as well.

I guess you would say, I am into paper crafting. I enjoy others handmade items, such as sewn, crochet, knitting, and cross stitch. Also, your homemade envelopes in all themes, homemade postcards, pages you made to add to my glue book, any paper crafts you like to do. Show me your creative side!

My favorite past time is really getting postcards ready for my Elderly project. I take on about 6 or 7 people at a time who have a medical condition or up in years to send the ABC's in postcards. I started this in 2020 with a widow who were friends with my parents. She was lockdown in her retirement home. I would talk to her by phone but decided sending the next 26 weeks the ABC's in postcards. I loved doing it so much I decided to do up to 7 people at a time. I pick them out of my stash than fancy them up with washi or stickers. I have them all in a baggie with the address to mail out every Monday. So anytime you have extra postcards or postcard stamps I will use them toward this project. I actually have a friend who liked the idea so much, she is also going to do this. You can send only so many cards saying Thinking of you! I here the receiver tries to guess what the next post card will be for the letter.
