About Me

I'm a mom of 3 beautiful young boys (9, 8, 7). I'm trying to instill the love of mail in my 3 boys. They certainly love to take my mail to the mailbox and put up the flag! They are also more than happy to help me decorate my envies!! I live in a tiny "village" in Michigan and love Michigan State University (Go Green! Go White!). I love stickers, making my own envelopes, and making my own postcards. I can't remember a time when I didn't love sending and receiving mail!

We are cat people - we Now have just one Actual Cat that resides here, along with my 7yo who loves to meow and pretend he is a cat. Lily is an 12yo tortoiseshell that we adopted in Sept 2018. We just lost our dear Pounce 9/5/20 At the age of 16.5, and she had been with us since she was a young kitten.

My dad passed away in January 2020, my grandma June 2020, and now our cat Pounce. Rough year even without the pandemic. Swapping is helping keep my mind focused for periods of time when otherwise I'd feel completely frazzled.

Favorite Music

Most current country, some (not all) pop. I can never remember artists' names or who sings what...its just not my forte :) not so great with lyrics either, my kiddos know more words to current songs than I do! My hubby is the total opposite--great with songs and artists, can't live without music in his daily life.

Favorite Television

Current: Grey's Anatomy, Superstore, Jeopardy, The 100, Atypical, Outlander, Agents of Shield. Just finished Season 3 of The Handmaid's Tale and Call the Midwife. Hoping to find a new series (with multiple seasons) soon.

With the kids, we watch things like Ultimate Tag, American Ninja Warrior, and the Titan Games.

Got an antenna and can play Jeopardy with the hubs again...although he still wins more often than not.

I love Disney movies, especially Lilo and Stitch and Beauty and the Beast. Will watch almost any movie genre....except horror. I'm just too much of a scaredy cat.

Favorite Crafts

handmade envies, decorating envies, flipbooks, handmade die cuts or embellishments, basically anything involving glue or scissors...


I’ve been joining a lot more PC swaps lately and thought that my profile may be lacking in terms of direction for my partners here. Most of my partners seem to have a nice list!

But, in reality, I’d rather be surprised than get PCs in the same 10 or so styles that I have listed out in my profile. Some of my all time faves are things that I never would have thought to list out on my profile!

Would love to hear your thoughts on why you chose a particular PC !though!

Likes / Wishlist

I love surprises, really truly do. No allergies. Love love love decorated or colorful envelopes.

I would be super excited to receive:
~blank notecards. I’ve somehow run out recently!! ~Stickers, sticker flakes.
~Shaped or cute design post-its!
~Stationery paper--especially multiple sheets of the same design to write long-ish penpal letters!
~Washi tape, especially, shiny, vintage look, monochromatic, thin, or thick styles. Would love some solid color foil look washi.
~Blank address labels. Big wide ones where I don’t have to smush my big ol handwriting inside.
~Handmade embellishments I can use to add flavor to my crafts!
~Cat-themed items.
~floral themed items, always can find a way to use them!
~enamel dots, store bought or handmade!

Not My Thing (Dislikes)

The following is not really my thing and I would prefer not to receive:
~religious theme
~off-season holiday items
~green tea

I received your postcard for my CPG Aug wishlist! That's fast considering I had a swap to the US that took more than a month. International mail delivery times are always a mystery haha. Also thank you for the interesting stamps, I googled about it and learnt more!
