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

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!
