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 dog named Jack, who we adopted from a local shelter (Fall 2018).

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.



*Vintage ephemera (greeting cards, TV guide pages, etc)

*quirky, random, unexpected


*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

*PINS!! My newest collection. Disney trading pins, fun enamel pins, unusual pins.

*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, Veep, Stranger Things, Sneaky Pete, Bob's Burgers, Chuck & Outlander.

Currently re-watching: Pee Wee’s Playhouse and The Andy Griffith Show

*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 watched the 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: Fabulous PCs Cheryl, I especially love the Brewery and vintage "Life of Ease" PCs. And the old Pirates sticker is AWESOME! Thank you so much. Yes we do miss sports, it is so strange without baseball right now! Enjoy your weekend :)

Comment: Whohooh! That travelled a long time. Just happy it arrived after all.
Response: Well....the replacement swap was already sent. Enjoy the extra gifts. I sent one for you and one for your daughter, since the first one didn't look like it was going to be arriving.

Comment: Such a guest room with a beautiful bed! Women wore night caps when they slept. I guess they had thin hair from wearing wigs every day. I like the older stamps you used.

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.
