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 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 images and themes: four leaf clovers, happy Buddha images, horseshoes

*natural stones & crystals

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

*Casinos - a little slot machine gambling from time to time :)

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

*wax for making wax seals (WISH LIST!)

*stained glass

*Plumbing & Copper

*miniature enamel/glass/metal figurines

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

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

I'm kind of a couch potato....

Some of my favorite shows.... The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, The Good Place, The Middle, Orphan Black, Mr. Robot, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, A.P. Bio, 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.
