About Me

Hello everyone,

I live in Ohio, the Buckeye state. I have been married for over 40 years to a wonderful guy. I have that empty nest you hear so much about. I am fortunate to be retired and have hobbies that I am passionate about.

I am crafty and enjoy papercrafts. I make handmade greeting cards, some of which I send to various charities, a few who are shut-ins, and also to friends and family. I like to share. Especially if it spreads a little joy around.

I love pen paling and everything to do with it, especially stationery and notecards.

I believe in treating people well, and playing by the rules. I love to swap, ever since I was a kid, I was always trading something with someone. I love this website and am excited about it.

I also sew and took a jewelry making class recently and enjoyed making several pairs of earrings. I love how they turned out and will take more classes.

I play golf and do Tai Chi for exercise.

Here are some things that I like


Stationery and notecards

I have started collecting coffee sleeves from various places - any addition to my collection would be super cool

Cats, both domestic and the big cats like Tigers

All kinds of flowers - a rose is a beautiful thing

Colors - I like them ALL, especially pink and I like hot pink and black color combos.

Even though I like colors, I also like the black and white combo.

polka dots

Washi tape and Bakers' twine - all colors

Funny, clever or inspirational quotes

I like a good laugh (Why isn't that spelled laff? Laugh doesn't even look like a word. Oh, well, nobody asked me.)

Love those Minions!

Postcards of all kinds including handmade

Decorated/handmade envelopes

Paris/French themes

All things Italy

Love Kokopelli

Grab bags, surprise packs

Coffee or sweets themes

Paper crafting supplies -patterned paper, ink pads, stampers, embellishments, really anything for paper crafting new or used


Movie - Wizard of Oz

TV - Big Bang Theory (still using the friendship paradigm, haha)

Book - Angela's Ashes

Song - Hallelujah

Celebrity - Johnny Depp

Musician - Bob Dylan

Era - 60s - Hippies

Style - Vintage/Shabby Chic


Glitter, unless it absolutely won't fall off the item. Glitter glue might be ok


Don't wish to receive anything to eat or drink


Being mean to animals

Being mean to people

In the interest of getting my profile out there, I will stop now, but may update my profile from time to time. I wish you joy, health and peace.

Happy Swapping!

ArtyBeth3 rated for WOW!: Washi Tape Pen Pal Letter on Jul 26, 2017
Comment: Now it's my turn to say - thanks for a WONDERFUL washi pen pal letter and sharing some of your newest tapes. They are simply gorgeous!! I like the idea to use them as stickers and have received some where people stick them to wax paper and then cut around them, but I like just using them as you have.

WOOOHOO!!! I received the RAK Scripture pages today, thank you so so much - it will be a blast to use them, and what a lovely way to incorporate scripture into my every day.

Take care, Dina

Hi Maggie! I forgot to thank you for the AMAZING envie of stationery you sent me from my wishlist! WOW . . . you and I are definitely both avid collectors. I can't believe you got them at thrift stores. The thrift stores around here NEVER have ANY stationery--vintage or otherwise. Love it all!!!
