About Me

Updated profile on January 1st, 2022

Sept 2021 Chemo again... on a trial for VB-111 Oval - It's slowing me down a little a couple days a week but never too much!! If I owe you something let me know! I am behind with a couple of swaps that I bought stuff on Etsy for so I am at the mercy of when they are sent to me (everything is here or on it's way! YAY!)

Kindness matters and I will always bestow that on anyone who needs it from me!! Hugs to all!

My focus word for 2022 is ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ MANIFEST

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Important

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ If I owe you a swap, please message me. Covid has cause mail chaos, as we all know too well! I will always make good on my swaps so if something goes missing, just let me know and I will get a re-send out asap! Thanks!

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ As you can see by my thousands of ratings, my ratings and swaps are very important to me. I will get everyone’s swaps to them, I promise. Please be kind and message me if you are missing something from me. Thank you SO MUCH!!

2nd June, 2020

Mail just came! Always a highlight of the day but today... was a little differen! I received a swap from NOVEMBER 2018 -- TWENTY EIGHTEEN! LOL I am Laughing so hard!! It's postmarked 15th NOVEMBER, 2018!! Cracks me up! Just goes to show you that there IS hope for lost swaps out there!!

A lil of this and that...


ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I am an avid Junk Journaler! I love making and using mixed my media journals! I also dabble in ATCs (occasionally)

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ True Antique Ephemera is what I love most! Most of my ephemera collection spans from mid 1800s to the 1950s

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ My journals are mostly done in a distressed, antique and vintage style. Mostly with authentic vintage and antique ephemera and papers. I do, however, love Tim Holtz style when the swap does not call for authentic vintage!

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっI love vellum stickers and clear backed stickers

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I use lots of antique old maps and old ledger papers, antique ephemera, vintage tickets, checks, pharmacy prescriptions, notes, old letters, antique stamps, old labels, old magazine ads, etc...

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I tend to decorate my envelopes with botanical images and vellum stickers, old book pages, washi and rubber stamps

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Medieval, Regency, Victorian and WWII Eras are all areas of my interest and ones in which I do living history impressions.

Iʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I use a lot of lace and trim in my journals

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ In my junk journals , I tend to lean towards using old book pages .. I also love to use them for decorating envelopes.

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I love rubber stamped images on old book pages! They are works of art in their own right and I use quite a few of them in my crafting

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I absolutely LOVE Halloween , Autumn and Christmas themes for my journals! I love all things creepy and vintage for Halloween and traditional and vintage for Christmas! Heck I love all things Halloween and Christmas themed - those two themes are such 'feel good' themes!

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I love CHINESE NEW YEAR Red Envelopes! I collect them and have many different ones (Not just Red!) from all over parts of China and USA! I love them!


I am working on a frankendeck if playing cards from each of the 50 states (DC and Puerto Rico too!)

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I just recently stumbled upon Deconstructed Journals and am trying my hand making a few before I start joining swaps for them


ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I collect antique (1930s - 1950s) linen postcards.

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ When joining swaps that are just for writing postcards - I really like all sorts of themes -- trains, architecture, touristy, nature, maps, Disney, animals anything really!
