About Me

Hi! I'm Cheryl! I'm married and I live in Plainfield, IL, about 40 miles southwest of Chicago. I'm a huge Chicago Blackhawks hockey fan.

Proud fur momma of an "energetic" hound-mix puppy, named Jack, which we adopted from a local shelter (Fall 2018). We haven't had a puppy in a long time and I would appreciate any tips/advice on how to train and survive a puppy who has endless energy and is a bit nippy. He recently started attending doggy daycare one day a week to get some energy out and that is helpful....so far! LOL

I am a Social Worker and my focus is helping adults with severe mental illness live independently in the community. My motto (acquired from Pinterest): "Love thy Neighbor....No Exceptions!"

I love all things postal, snail mail and mail art. I'm not sure what I enjoy most...sending mail or receiving mail. I love stamps and first day cover envelopes as well.

I enjoy visiting central Wisconsin and I am addicted to Cheese!

One of my simple joys is stumbling upon an interesting quote. Sometimes just watching tv, listening to the radio or reading a book can lead to the surprise of a quote that moves you. For some odd reason, I especially like very odd/obscure quotes, lines from movies and music lyrics. If you have any favorites please pass them along.


*Elvis (I'm finally visiting Graceland in 2018 for my 40th birthday!)

*Vintage ephemera

*Gemma Correll illustrations

*journaling....a mix of junk journaling and gratitude journaling

*Stickers: kawaii mini puffy stickers, Korean diary stickers, planner stickers, odd/unusual stickers, promotional stickers, holiday stickers, vintage stickers......I really like stickers!

*Good Luck themes: four leaf clovers, happy Buddha images, horseshoes

*natural stones & crystals

*Animals: deer, llamas, wolves, chipmunks, squirrel, birds, turtles, elephants, pandas, Clydesdale horses

*Stationery - traditional/weird logos/businesses with cool graphics

*wax for making wax seals

*Plumbing & Copper

*miniature enamel/glass/metal figurines

*Foods/Flavors: hazelnut, anything chocolate, nuts, coffee

*dog toys/chews for Jack

*dog themed items (brown & white colored dogs)

Stocking stuffer swaps: I love these swaps and put quite a bit of time into finding the right gift and wrapping the gift nicely. I really like present presentation, it enhances the experience :)

*Postcard wishlist: I am not picky, I love all types of postcards (used, new, in an envelope, naked). I do love vintage PC's. I'm also fond of postcards with scalloped edges. I enjoy images of water (ice, lakes, oceans, fog, steam, beaches, rain, waterfalls), clouds, Ansel Adams, black & white and cinema/TV. I like odd and quirky cards and I don't mind offensive cards.

*I enjoy receiving mail with real stamps for postage (but I understand its not always feasible)


*reward stickers/toddler type stickers



*cigarette/smoke smell


Favorite Television

Some of my favorite shows.... The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, The Good Place, Mr. Robot, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Bob's Burgers, General Hospital and Outlander.

*Anything humorous....I love comedy and great one liners, (some of my favorite comedians: Jim Gaffigan, Mitch Hedberg, Melissa McCarthy,John Pinette, Kristen Schaal......too many to list)

Favorite Movies

I love great movies.....I've wateched AFA Top 100 movies of all time (checked off of the bucket list!).

Favorite Books

I enjoy suspense and psychological thrillers and non-fiction audio books.

Comment: Oh the chameleon one is funny! I had Strawberry shortcake all the things, too!! Including a lunchbox, which was fun, and a winter hat, which was not, because the big kids on the bus liked to pull it down over my eyes. I like hats a lot more as as adult, when such things don't happen! :)
Response: Glad you liked the pc’s! I think I had a Strawberry lunchbox too! ❤️
Comment: Thank you! I’m going to put it in my tote bag. And thank you so much for the awesome belly dancer card. I LOVE it!!!
Response: Your welcome!
Comment: What a lovely homemade envelope you used to mail me a teenie tiny present. My suspicions are running rapidly. What is it? But I placed it in my stocking till December. Thank-you. Happy Valentines Day.
Response: You’re welcome! Happy Valentine’s Day!
