About Me

I'm a mom of 3 beautiful young boys (9, 8, 6). 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 many moons ago. Lately I’ve been trying to write her weekly as she in hospice no longer strong enough to battle her cancer.

We are cat people - we have 2 actual cats that reside here, along with my 6yo who loves to meow and pretend he is a cat. Pounce is a 16yo 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 an11yo 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: Grey's Anatomy, Superstore, Jeopardy, The 100, Atypical, Outlander. Hubs and I used to play Jeopardy every evening before we got rid of satellite. Missing it a lot now despite rarely being the winner. (I am better at Wheel of Fortune BTW)

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, shiny, vintage look, monochromatic, 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: Haven't been to Jackman. Maybe, this is all their Main Street has to offer. Not keen on this card either.

Comment: I fully agree, multiview cards are thumbs DOWN. I only send them to people I don't like in Postcrossing swaps and only if they don't put any specifics in their profile. Muhahaha. I have terrible eyesight so thsee teensy pictures are almost worthless to me. Like this couple on here, I'd love to see the details of their outfits. Thanks for the ugly card ;) :):):)

Thank you so much for the monochromatic stamp Rak! I'm really excited about this project. It will probably take a while to gather as many stamps as I need, but I will try to post a finished product photo on my profile when it's done.

Tabletop unload RAK -- Thanks so much for the postage stamps. You asked how I use them. I remove them from the envelope paper and add them to my stamp collection which I have in a binder. It's fun looking at the many different stamps from various countries.
