etsy favorites


  • Married no kids.
  • Not picky or easily offended.
  • Strive to make you laugh and feel great even if just for a moment. I'm an oddball and tend to think outside the box. If I get it wrong please let me know.
  • Scottish terrier lover and pet rescue supporter.
  • My new favorite thing in the world is the movie Isle of Dogs. I could write paragraphs gushing my love for it.


  • Mail art, flat stickers, postcards(handmade ok), labels, address labels, postage stamps, postalettes, and washi samples.
  • Anything handmade or decorated by you. Atc, pocket letter, inchies, flip books, stuffies, pins, really anything.
  • Lists, jokes, poems, haiku, limericks.

  • Vintage stationery 1960s - 80s.
  • Bright and natural colors.

All animals and plants especially:

  • Scottish Terriers.
  • Rescued pets and their stories.
  • Mega fauna - e.g. Woolly Mammoth, Saber tooth tigers, giant sloths.
  • Donkeys, goats, and pigs.
  • Fish and other sea life, horseshoe crabs.
  • Woodland creatures real or imagined.
  • Put a bird on it: Flamingos, barn swallows, woodpeckers, crows, turkeys, birds of prey.

Food and travel:

  • I like to imagine myself as one of those majestic women in an outdoor catalog, dressed in cool gear, one with nature, and effortlessly hiking up a mountain. I'm more likely to trip in the parking lot before I even get to the trail.

Wes Anderson films are so good that I want to eat them.

Favorite Books

Always reading something and it varies greatly, could be science fiction, fantasy, or historical fiction. Biography, Ted talks(don't know where to put these), or old childrens science textbooks.

I HIGHLY recommend: 3/24/17 -The fifteen lives of Harry August by Claire North.
-The Borgias have been fascinating me lately, it's amazing that we have the details of these people's lives that lived so long ago. I get exhausted just thinking about their daily lives.

Favorite Music

Spotify is on most of the day. Frequently Go to: 80s alternative, Wilco, The Who, Monsters of folk, Jack White, and love finding new music!

Favorite Crafts

Anything handmade by you is greatly loved and appreciated, no matter your skill level.

I enjoy making papercrafts: pocket letters, postcards, atcs, and mail art. I just haven't felt very crafty lately so haven't been joining those types of swaps. I do continue to buy and hoard supplies of course.

I really love needle felting, but am allergic to the wool:(

Thanks for reading. Have a great day!

Thanks so much for my April wish which I saved to open on my May 5 bday. Very fun birthday card and love the postcards, especially the cool map of Norway!

Thank you for the wonderful AATW wish. The large envelopes are great to have.

susieq11 on Apr 18, 2018:

I did see it!!!! It was good!!! xoxo

kiddomerriweather on Apr 17, 2018:

Thank you for granting my April AATW wishes. I love the labels and I think you did a fine job with the washi samples. Allie was thrilled to get them. You’re the best! 💗

Love the vintage Christmas cards and intricate flourish stickers for my April AATW wish! Thank you also for a birthday card - I will make myself wait til May 5 to enjoy it on my day! Very fun envelope, also.

susieq11 on Apr 17, 2018:

Oh my, label and sticker happiness!! Thanks so much for all the goodies and your note for AATW April!!! Oh I cannot wait to decorate my mail now!!!! I sent you a postcard yesterday and I’ll catch up more very soon. Thank you for thinking of me and being so generous. You made me smile and really brightened my day. You are so good at sharing!!! :D Thank you, friend!!!! xoxo (great postcard too, ha!)

kiddomerriweather on Apr 17, 2018:

Haha! I saw your post about washi samples. I don’t even attempt them anymore and surprisingly it’s not because of my tremors. I just don’t have the ability to wrap the damn things straight. I have a ton of the stuff, too. Well I have been trying a little lately because of my niece, but they look really crappy, but she doesn’t mind. She’s just thrilled to get it. Glossy business cards work better for me I’ve found. I can wrap them straighter. So don’t fret, my pet. Thanks for thinking of us. ❤️

Hey Laura! Good to hear from you. I loved those Oz swaps. I have not been on here in so long; i log in, look around and out. I took a long break for a bit from the drama/politics/etc. Would love to get a swap going with you regarding Oz!
