About Me

I am living a semi-retired life waitressing at a little creole restaurant in Ivoryton, CT.

I love paper. Books, making books, altering books, cards, stamping, all kinds of mail art, journaling, collage, stamps, etc. I also make beaded jewelry.

I enjoy swapping with people from around the world. I understand that the mail systems can have flaws and things may not arrive to their destination. I pledge to reach out more than once before rating a 1 or a 3. I would really appreciate the same courtesy. I understand the disappointment of spending time on a swap and knowing someone seemingly did nothing.

I often include extras that are profile based, not for the hearts (I do appreciate them though!) but because I have so much stuff to share and would like to bring a smile to people's faces. That said, please rate your swap. (I always will) It helps me continue to improve what I send out, and lets me know you received my envelope.

Comment: I thought I had rated you already but found out just now that I hadn't. I received your gorgeous butterfly photos and just love them! There's nothing wrong with these photos. It must be exciting to raise butterflies. I went to a butterfly garden in Seattle and really enjoyed seeing all the beautiful butterflies and having them land on my hands.
Comment: Thank you for this special package! I will definitely enjoy wearing all of the jewelry. I am also very excited to hang up all of the Hufflepuff cards in my work cubicle. :D
Comment: Wow, what a fun envelope and goodies! Also, I love the US postal service postage stamps you used to send the swap. Thank you!
Comment: Hello! OMG I am so excited about these earrings! I have not been able to find any earrings that I liked for Halloween and these are perfect! I cant wait to wear them to work :] And thank you for the extras! I love the laminated flowers! What a neat idea ^-^ Perfect swap, made my day :]
Comment: What a wonderful package I got from you today. Very nice assortment of note cards, in which I will use up quickly. The chicken p/c goes into my "never give away" collection. And I really should try my hand at pocket letters and so your starter package, got me thinking of how to put them together. Thank you so very much for the resend.
Comment: WOW! Holy smokes, you've spoiled me rotten with all these fabulous postage stamps, gorgeous garden flowers, and pretty little papers β™₯. I love everything you sent. Thank you for all the time and care you clearly put into choosing these for me. The owls and white oak are some of my favorite stamps. Have a lovely day. β™₯

Dear KC, received your 3 part envelopes of goodies. Everything is so awesome! The paper goods are all really pretty, yes, I do like Oz, & yes, this kind of paper merchandise is not available in India! Thanks a lot, this is very generous indeed, & I am sure my daughter too will appreciate the stickers! This great RAK really made my day - no- my week! :)
