************A huge "THANK YOU" to all the lovely, thoughtful, caring friends & fellow swappers that have been so sweet and supportive of me through this tough time -it truly means the world to me! â™¡*********
â˜… Quick List -I â™¥ Mail Art, anything Air Mail themed/postal related, chocolate, tea, tea towels, coins/currency, the moon, Squirrels (naturally) & anything covered in Lots of Postage Stamps! :D â˜…
Greetings from North Dakota! :D I'm so terrible at filling out these profiles -never really know what people really want to know, so please -feel free to ask questions!
Now let's see...about me...well..I â™¥ Mail! Ha . One of my favorite parts of the day is when I walk my little dog down the street to my mailbox and find all sorts of goodies inside -Yay!
I studied Architecture & Art in college, and was obsessed with all things music -so I truly appreciate anything artistc!
I do a little painting (mostly rosemaling), enjoy jazz, love to bake (I â™¥ recipes -cards/book/magazines), being crafty, scrapbooking with Real Scraps (I guess people call it 'junk journaling'/'smaskbooking' now), callages, photographs (mostly of flowers/nature/pastries/architecture/travel), stamping, ink, glitter, I like Calligraphy, beautiful Old Victorian homes, Vintage/Shabby Chic/Antique/Repurposed/Flea Market/Thrift Shop finds. I love old books (especially with beautiful covers) -old Poetry books are the best!
I have recently been peer pressured into joining Pinterest, lol, and am hooked.
I Love Nature and I Love to Travel! I â™¥ woodland creatures (Squirrels, Owls, and Foxes are my favorite). I have a small garden -flowers (I like rosesI and Adore Wildflowers! ), herbs and veggies (tomatoes -yum!).
I'm a Stationary Addict! Ha ha, I can't get enough! â˜…When in doubt -Add more Glitter! ;D I love totes, fun fabrics, lovely yarns (alpaca, wool, etc.). Rhinestones -â™¥ Cathedrals -â™¥ I really enjoy teal/aqua/turquoise blues, mauve/dusty rose pinks, plum/aubergine purples. I adore color (even though I seem to wear a lot of black, hee hee). I'm crazy for earrings and embellished headbands/fascinators/headwear. Goodness, lol ....I like a lot of things, it seems. Ha ha
Well...I'm looking to have fun with this and I hope you do, too. Please be creative! Get inspired! I want to make connections, so please feel free to contact me. I've done several swaps via facebook in the past, and they've been such great experiences. I look forward to this - can't wait! Take Care!
â˜…â˜…â˜…A Few, Somewhat Specific, Suggestionsâ˜…â˜…â˜…
â€¢Silverware/Flatwareâ€¢ ~Antique (doesn't have to be expensive -could be a cheap yard sale/antique store/thrift shop find, but I love antique silverware! Even if it's a little beat up [I prefer no scratched/dents], but it could even be severely tarnished -as long as it has some sort of decoration [simple or ornate]â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦some sort of charm [could be floral or a shield or a monogram, a bird, some scrollwork, etc.] -please send them my way!) ~Unique pieces (soup spoons, pickle forks, butter knifes, cake/tart servers....something special/unique from your country/state) â™¥â™¥â™¥
â€¢Coinsâ€¢ I love coins from around the world! I have a soft spot for old, Antique /Vintage coins, especially with beautiful images (like animals, scrolls, crowns, flowers, etc.) But I like new coins, too -it could even be just the change you got back from a purchase you made earlier that day or just a penny taped to a greeting card -it all puts a huge smile on my face :D
â€¢Postcardsâ€¢ (and other greeting cards) ~Squirrels! ~Vintage!!! (Victorian holiday images, for example) ~Antique/Antique Replicas ~Swallows ~Owls ~Foxes ~Mushrooms ~Roses ~Clovers & Shamrocks ~Snow ~Jetoy (I used to have a white cat with one yellow and one blue eye...gorgeous creature, so I'd love to get some lovely Jetoy cardsâ™¥)

â˜…Please Use Stampsâ˜… I know that sometimes the post-person will get that barcode sticker on there so fast you may not have the chance to request stamps (this has happened to me before), but stamps really do make a letter/parcel/package SO much nicer. Plus, I â™¥ 'em!
â˜…â˜…Please -whatever you do, be thoughtful!
I do this for the joy of sending -I do my very best to make/send things people will like. A lot of effort and thought goes into my outgoing mail. It would put a smile on my face if you attempt the same. :D
I want people to feel inspired and find joy in these swaps. Afterall, isn't that what this is all about?
Please DO NOT SEND Brazil Nuts! -Deathly Allergic!!!
I don't care much for super childish things -I do not have any children, only a small pomeranian dog, ha ha. This doesn't mean I don't enjoy cute things from time to time -I do. ...if you truly think I may like something, I always keep an open mind.
Thank You, in advance, for being Considerate -â™¥
