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.

I’m non-denominational Christian, but appreciate and enjoy learning about other religions.

Proud fur momma of an "energetic" hound-mix dog named Jack, we adopted from a local shelter (Fall 2018).

I am the manager of a community support program at a behavioral health center. I’ve been in this field for over 20 years. I especially like working with seniors and individuals who are in the treatment alternative court programs.

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 spending time in nature.

I enjoy going on tours (cemetery tours, factory tours, ghost tours, historical tours)

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.



*Vintage ephemera! Vintage wrapping paper :)

*vintage holiday themes (example: 1950’s style Christmas ornaments)

*Austin Powers (my husband and I recently rewatched the ridiculous trilogy, ha ha!)

*quirky, random, unexpected

*Pee Wee Herman

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

*handmade items


*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

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

*miniature enamel/glass/metal figurines

*dog themed items (brown & white colored dogs - Jack Russell/Hound mix)

*I have pierced ears and prefer dainty or minimal designs.

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 wish list: I enjoy images of water (ice, lakes, oceans, fog, steam, beaches, rain, waterfalls), clouds, black & white and cinema/TV. I like odd and quirky cards and I don't mind offensive cards.


*reward stickers/toddler type stickers



*cigarette/smoke smell


Favorite Television

Some of my favorite shows...Parks and Rec, 30 Rock, Arrested Development, Ghosts, The Office, Kath and Kim, The IT Crowd, Outlander.

Currently watching: Resident Alien

Favorite Movies

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

I like Marvel movies and during the summer of 2022 I rewatched all of the Marvel movies (and series) in time order (Disney+ had them listed and once I got started I had to finish! LOL)

Favorite Books

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

PODCASTS: Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend, Smartless, The Office Ladies, Buddhist Bootcamp

Comment: Thanks for the lovely card and all the positive and empowering goodies.
Response: Welcome!
Comment: I feel like you got inside my head, rifled around and dug through the piles to see what I like, and then waved a magic wand to create the perfect little pack of swap goodness. Every single thing in this envelope is a treasure, and like you, I am going to start using the signoff from that amazing letter: "Your service is a paragon of nothing!" Thanks so much for sharing with me. I would give you 10,000 hearts if I could!
Response: I appreciate your kind words! It’s great when we can connect so we’ll with a single swap ;)

Hi, I see you turtles and animal postcards, so I was wondering if you'd be interested in joining my Scales 'n' Tails group? We currently have a turtle ATC & a dragon postcard swap on the go.
