Hello from Ryleighsmom!

11/3/21 I JUST realized I’ve mailed out a bunch of mail using postcard stamps instead of letter stamps!! 😱😳☹️ Oh my word!! If you get mail from me postage due, PLEASE let me know so I can reimburse you!! I am so sorry!! 😭

April 2021- We have moved and it’s taking our mail forever to be forwarded, etc. If I haven’t rated you, I haven’t received the swap yet. I promise to rate as soon as I have your swap in hand! 🦋💌📫

Hello! My name is Michelle & I'm a happily married mom to a very busy daughter! I've been married since 1993. We spent 14 years on the painful journey of infertility. We were blessed in 2008 with a newborn through the miracle of adoption!!

I've been swapping off and on since 1984!

I am a conservative Christian who loves going to church. ❤️


*Paper crafts such as pocket letters, junk and magpie journals, handmade envelopes and more



*Visiting our state parks

*Spending time with my family

*Thrift shops

*Decorating my home


*Upcycling junk into treasures

Favorite Television

I really don't watch much television, but when I do, I watch classics such as I Love Lucy and Andy Griffith. :) I also love shows about history.

Favorite Books

I love Christian fiction. I read lots of Amish fiction books in exchange for writing book reviews. I love it!

I also love regional books such as the Foxfire series. I love to read books set in the Appalachian mountain region.


My wishlist/loves:

  • New postage stamps, any value, any quantity! Even one new stamp makes me happy! I am a part of several card ministries and go through stamps like crazy!
  • Stickers (See below)
  • Note cards (See below)
  • Stationery
  • Food-scented candles & bath products
  • Ultra Fine Sharpies in all colors
  • $5 gift cards to my fave stores (see below)

For sticker & note card themes, I love anything Autumn related (apples, pumpkins, etc.), snowmen, Christmas, flowers...just about anything BUT teacher reward and boyish toys like transformers or whatever. I don't need anymore Dollar Store type note cards...have lots of those!

I love milk chocolate, peanut M & M's, Reese’s Peanut Butter cups, gum, etc. Not a fan of black licorice or raisins.

I am a Christian, so I love Christian themed things...not a collector of angels or anything, but I'm not offended by stickers or cards with Scriptures on them...in fact, I love them!

Favorite Stores

I love to shop at Hobby Lobby, Michael's, Joann Fabrics, Half Price Books, Homegoods, etc.

Goodies for my Daughter

My daughter LOVES to receive mail! Her birthday is July 1 (2008). Her name is Ryleigh.

6.6.21- Her current loves are:

❤️ Beauty face masks. She’s obsessed with the ones from Dollar Tree. ❤️ Hair scrunchies ❤️ Starbucks ❤️ Dollar Tree ❤️ Jimmy John’s ❤️ Healthy smoothie recipes (she has her own small blender!) lol ❤️ Photos or print outs for a collage wall- flowers, Beach, succulents, sunsets, etc ❤️ Wax seals. She has two- one with an R and another one with music notes. ❤️ Bath bombs ❤️ Cute chap sticks ❤️ She loves rose gold, light pink, light blue…


  • Coffee and anything coffee flavored or scented

  • Pagan, goth, bats, wiccan stuff

  • I don't wear jewelry, make-up or perfume.

*My BIGGEST Dislike is when people have a LONG Dislike list. We're here to have fun...if I don't like something I can surely pass it on!

I am VERY allergic to cat hair, cigarette smoke, coffee scented things, and lavender and lilac scented things.

Comment: Hi Michelle, Yay! I’m crazy about the faux garment tags you made for me! Loving the little folder you made to put them in. I may need to scraplift that idea😊. The tags are gorgeous, so finely detailed. Loving the layers. I would have a very hard time picking my favorite out of the three because they are all so pretty. Thank you! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Comment: Hi Michelle, Yay! I absolutely adore the altered art you made for me😊 Loving the collaged elements on the bingo card and the pink guest check,as well as those cute mason jars. Thank you!

Rbrstmpr rated for SMSUSA: Mail Art Goodies 💌 on Apr 24, 2022
Comment: Yowza Batgirl, you’ve won this years prize for BEST SWAP RECEIVED!!! You won based on the mailing envelope alone, but of course the goodies sent far exceeded my expectations. Love the gelli prints and the vintage PC’s. Seriously, the note on one that said she had a swell time…when was the last time you heard someone say swell? Probably in 1941 when the note was written! I simply adore that and will have to find a way to display it. I love everything, from the charms and hidden paper clip clusters to the h-m double pocket and mini file folder. But the digitalis of the butterfly tags and botanical pockets shot me right over the moon. I love it all and want to use every single piece but right now I have them spread out across one of my farm tables in the studio so I can admire each piece from every angle of the room. Adoration is beaming it’s way from NC to you!!! One heart is simply not enough.💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕
