About Me

I'm a mom of 3 beautiful young boys (8, 7, 5). 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! My grandmother is one of my best penpals, and has been since I first went off to college 17 years ago.

We are cat people - we have 2 actual cats that reside here, along with my 5yo who loves to meow and pretend he is a cat. Pounce is a 15yo ball of gray and white fluff and has been with us since she was a young kit. The old gal is showing signs of feline dementia, but we love her dearly and are doing our best to make her feel loved and safe. Lily is a 10yo tortoiseshell that we adopted in Sept 2018, and fierce enemy of Pounce. But she is a doll to all humans.

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, I get that from my dad hahaha. My hubby is great with songs and artists...we complement eachother well.

Favorite Television

Current: Big Bang Theory, The Good Place, Grey's Anatomy, Superstore, Jeopardy, The 100, 9-1-1. Started watching a few Netflix series on and off, much better than their in house movies!!!! Hubs and I play Jeopardy every evening. Sad to say, I am rarely the winner. But I kick butt at Wheel of Fortune.

I love Disney movies, especially Lilo and Stitch and Beauty and the Beast.

Favorite Crafts

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

Likes / Wishlist

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

I would be super excited to receive:
~A few sheets of matching stationery. If you’re thinking about maybe sending me a notecard or stationery, choose the stationery!! I like to write long-ish letters to my penpals, and there’s not quite enough room on a card! Plus I love seeing and using new stationery designs!
~Stickers.
~Flat stencils- store bought or homemade.
~Die cuts. Handmade or store bought. Even just basic shapes. Large or small, I’ll use them all!
~Washi tape, especially pictures, shiny, vintage look, thin, or thick styles.
~Blank address labels. Big wide ones where I don’t have to smush my big ol handwriting inside.
~stamped images from a hand-carved stamp!
~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!

Comment: OMG the picture looks like one of our relatives 😂. We're lucky all of our kids are grownn so it's always a good vacation now because it's mostly just me and my husband. We've decided to go to Nashville for Christmas, it's been one of the places my husband's been wanting to go to for years and I should be safe from all frogs. Thanks for the PC and the letter on the back that's thoroughly enjoyed it.
