About Me

I'm a mom of 3 beautiful young boys (13, 11, 10). I'm trying to instill the love of mail in my 3 boys but sadly they don’t have a fondness for writing or paper crafts. I do continue to send mail to my nieces pretty regularly though and still have hope that one may grow up to be a snailmailer, haha. I live in a tiny "village" in Michigan and love Michigan State University (Go Green! Go White!). I love stickers, making my own envelopes, deco books, 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 have two actual cats here along with my 8yo who loves to meow and pretend he is a cat. Lily is an 13yo tortoiseshell that we adopted in Sept 2018. Midge is a ball of energy with the cutest meow you ever did hear, adopted Sept 2020 after our dear Pounce passed away.

2020 was a rough year here, even without the pandemic. My dad passed away in January, my grandma (best penpal ever) in June, and then Pounce in September. Grandpa passed away in April 2021 so unfortunately the grief continued, but swaps have helped me cope.

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

Outlander, The Handmaid's Tale, Ted Lasso. Hoping to find a new series (with multiple seasons) soon.

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

Postcards

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:
~Stickers, sticker flakes.
~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

Decos

I generally have a very healthy stack of deco books— so let me know if you ever want a private swap or are just in need of a few more :). Happy to keep ‘em moving!

Comment: Thanks for PrincessLeia's insects deco. I too like her deco sleeves. I love her cover, with the stitches it has a leather look. Your light bulb page is perfect for an insect theme. P.S. I really like that butterfly paper you used for the envelope.

Comment: Your package came at the perfect time. I just spend 3 hours at the garden center, so I am inspired to do 2 plant decos, lol!! Thanks for sending Jessica's 'black flowers deco' & Itti's 'Succulent deco". OH, and I can't forget to swoon over the butterfly envie it arrived in, hoarding the envie in my recycle stash, lol!! xxMuggleMom

Comment: Jessica, thanks for these decos. You're right, the ladies with umbrellas is definitely my style AND I can't believe that birds deco is made with chipboard and cardstock for the pages. Yikes sooo heavy. I will be happy to send the homer on too--makes me feel good to do so.
