About Me

I'm a nurse living in suburban NYC, I've always wanted to be more creatively fulfilled. Mail art has been a fun outlet for me to explore my creative tendencies. I have trouble starting projects, so I really appreciate the direction. Favorite colors include green, magenta, and Metallic GOLD.

I love cats but have an allergic husband, so I dote on a pesky yet adorable labradoodle named Furley. We added a pet cockatiel to the mix during Covid, his name is Pineapple. Then we got a rescue parakeet named RIo. I've done a lot of scrapbooking in the past, but presently, I prefer magpie, gratitude, a magazine glue book, and writing journals.

I love decorating for the holidays and the IDEA of entertaining. But in practice, I enjoy the cooking, arranging a "tablescape" but wish I had a ejection chute for my my guests after two hours LOL.

I enjoy shopping for antiques but am trying to reconcile my collections with a small house. Decks of cards, Disney pins, and small assemblage items bring me delight. And I love any kind of anthropomorphic animal! They're impossibly cute!

Please contact me if you haven't received a swap from me, I will be more than happy to resend. My PO is pretty reliable, but the unexpected can happen. Thank-you!!

Favorite Music

I love 90s music, old school New Wave, Light FM, (especially 70s Yacht rock), Motown, some Broadway (Rent, Les Mis), Glamour hair metal,

Favorite Books

Favorite book ever is The Shell Seekers by Rosamunde Pilcher, I've enjoyed Maeve Binchy, Anita Shreve, Anne Rivers Siddons novels, short stories, tend to prefer uplifting books and themes. We have a little free library in our neighborhood, and I've found some good books by Fanny Flagg. The Goldfinch, The Moth short stories, travel novels, biographies (lately Ronnie Spector, Valerie Bertinelli, Geena Davis, Leslie Jones, Matthew Perry, Paul Newman, Julia Haart, Katie Couric

Favorite Crafts

My favorite craft has been collage. I love vintage labels, ephemera, all kind of bits and pieces. I love STICKERS of all types, I still have my sticker books from when I was a child, and am working on altering/updating it. I used to do a lot of scrapbooking, but prefer smaller art journals these days. Magpie Journals, Gratitude Journals, and composition notebook calendar datebooks. I like using unique quotations, song lyrics, recycling cardboard packaging. I've been in Fodder School both 1 and 2, love their ideas and the supportive environment.

Postcards, etc

Any kind of postcard is welcome, thanks! If you have any SUNSET postcards lying around, I'd love them. I live in a densely populated area, and I miss that I can't see the sunset easily. I also love random List Papers. Christian/Religious themes are ok too, I recently got a lot of inspiration from a Wake Pray Slay sticker, lol.

Favorite Television

Kim's Convenience, Lost, Portlandia, Mad Men, Mozart in the Jungle, 80's sitcoms, Curb your Enthusiasm, Louis CK (I know, I know), the Love Boat, Seinfeld, Twilight Zone, Schitt's Creek, Enjoyed Haunting of Hill House, Last Tango in Halifax, Dead to Me, Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and Jersey Shore, Cobra Kai, Brothers and Sisters, Handmaid's Tale, Transparent, Young Sheldon, Never Have I Ever, Modern Family, Shameless, Life and Beth, The Bear

More likes and interests

I enjoy collage, especially working on my Soul Collage deck of cards. I've been in Fodder School, both 1 and 2. I love going to museums, and exploring New York City with my family. I love decorating the house for the holidays, and having family game and movie nights.

My family

My daughter is 14 and her favorite things include: her pet birds Pineapple and Rio, playing the piano and clarinet and bass, lacrosse (she's a Goalie, God help me), cross country running, all kinds of animals, especially dogs, birds, hedgehogs, squirrels, and chipmunks.

BIG BIRTHDAY YEAR TURNING 50

I am turning 50 this year in November. I am trying harder to celebrate my birthday, as it made me sad for too many years after my parents passed away. I particularly joined the STM 49 and 50 to celebrate. I will LOVE and appreciate any special 50 decorations, "rubber stamped envelope" etc. Please and thanks always.

Hi, thank you for sending my traveling sticker book back! If I recall, that was the first swap participating in a "traveling sticker book", so I'm happy it came back to me. I haven't had success with traveling sticker book either, I've had one come back to me (because I purposely left 4 pages in it and teared the rest out haha). I appreciate you sending it back to me! ~kizzlets
