About Me

I've been snail mailing for about 50 years, I think! I'm still friends with my first pen pal (started in 1972) and her sister and I secretly arranged for me to meet her in person at her wedding in 1995.

I love a mailbox full of happy mail! I'm having so much fun with swaps and enjoying learning how to create ATCs, pocket letters and more.

I'm a small business advisor by day and a freelance writer during evenings and weekends. I'm a dog mom to Sparky, a 12 1/2 year old bossy terrier mix. I quilt and sew, bake (LOVE the Great British Baking Show), write plays, short stories and novels (all unpublished, all shared with very few), hike (with and without Sparky) and spend time with friends. I love to travel but rarely have the $ to go beyond my immediate area.

I love every color; all kinds of art and design; humor - edgy, tongue-in-cheek, topical. I'm not fussy when it comes to items I receive. I like the adventure of the unknown and getting a sense of the sender's personality through what she or he sends.

I love swapping and I'm a bit of a fanatic about putting together and sending out ALL swaps promptly. If you don't receive something from me, PLEASE let me know and I'll make it right.

Comment: Tracie~I love the pencil case and you stuffed it full of great goodies. I got a chuckle reading about your school memories. I don't even remember a cigar box. I just had a 3 hole plastic zippered pouch that you put in your 3 ring notebook that held a couple of pencils and an eraser. Thank you for your kindness and a smile.
Response: Oh, I do remember those zippered pouches! They always got marked up on the inside with pencil graphite and pen ink :-) Thanks for the heart!
