About Me

You can find hosting, rak-ing and swapping at Cheap Postage Swaps, Tags and Fun.

I enjoy crochet, knitting, origami, scrapbooking, atcs, collage, Sharpies and pretty much anything to do with paper. I miss painting pottery since I sold my paint-your-own-pottery studio.

Styles I like: clean, beach/tropical, upscale country, graphics, anime, clever, hand drawn, and of course, Hello Kitty.

Styles I like less: vintage, victorian, lace, nudes, gothic/dark or religious, cutesy, kitschy country.

LIKES: Love bright colors, unusual shapes, nature, pretty, happy stuff! Fav colors include sea blue, navy, red, black, blue, burgundy, purple! Fav scents are citrus, linen, simple and clean.

  • cotton yarn
  • amigurumi eyes
  • good quality stickers (botanical, origami, seasonal)
  • Hello Kitty flat items
  • washi tape!!
  • yuzen paper or origami paper
  • lucky star paper
  • asian or botanical ephemera for collage
  • antique book pages or music sheets for collage
  • paper lace ribbon or small doilies
  • new black hair elastics as I am forever losing them
  • tea towels, handmade lovely
  • anything from or inspired by my etsy favorites

ALLERGIES: Smoke, cat hair.

I am an early sender and a prompt rater. Please contact me if you have not received an item or a rating.

Also, I take most items to the PO to be weighed but sometimes what I think are simple flat envies go over an ounce and I don't realize it. If you get anything from me that comes postage due, please let me know and I'll send it to you!

Crafty Things I Make and Send

Handcrafted Things I tend to send: crochet items, pocket letters, ephemera, atcs, anything origami, addy labels + swap cards, handmade notecards,

Other things I like to send: postcards, profile surprises, stash (I have lots of stash), food/tea/candy, notecards, recipe cards, penpal letters, local/tourist items

Comment: Hi Grace! Thanks for the great card! I also have never been to the Great Lakes. I am trying to plan a little cross-country trip now that Hubby is full Canadian it is time to show him the rest of the country. :) Perhaps in a few years when everything has settled back into a routine.
Comment: Thank you for the amazing card! The extras I can put to use in my Christmas ATC project - I want to make my "garland" out of ATCs this year soooo I better get crackin'. The Christmas cards in July swap is helping me find the motivation :)
Comment: Thank you for the nicely decorated gift. I shall keep it for Christmas. My daughter may not come from UK this year. Holidays may be slower.
Comment: Thank you so much for the underwater origami scene! How cute! Thanks for the extra papers, too!
Comment: Your inkblot reminds me of a praying mantis on one side and turn it around and its a fuzzy spider. Great work

Comment: Hi Grace, You are so close, yet so far. If you ever have a reason to go to L.R., stop by for a cuppa coffee. 501-992=7800. Darling ATC coin. I put mine on tags, cards, junk journals. Just like I do with some of my ATCs. How about a garland of coins? Thanks for the extra goodies. I'm always sending art supplies overseas for missions so glad to have the little things. I make up kits...working on card kits now. Stay safe.
Comment: Great summer pennies! Thanks the extra!! Love how shiny the surface is!
Response: I cheated and sealed them with clear nail polish:)
Comment: Thank you for the fun card. I love word clouds.
dally rated for CPG Haiku HandMade PC - Global on Jul 22, 2020
Comment: Love your handmade PC, and I can relate to the hiaku; I too have a very sweet 15yo tuxey who still thinks he's a kitten. <3
Comment: Awesome card! I love trying to find all the stuff lol. I am really looking forward to more travel when the kids are a little older...and when the quarantine ends of course. I had two trips planned for this year, one was a solo trip to New Mexico. Very sad to postpone, but glad we're healthy. My cousin is supposed to be married in Sept. I don't know if they will cancel. Good luck to your daughter and fiance! :):):)
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful puzzle piece and the extras to craft with. Aloha!
Comment: Love your PC, Grace! It turned out great!
Comment: Thank you ! Iโ€™ll pass them on
