About Me

I am a 50+ lifer in the hospitality business. Right now I am living a semi-retired life waitressing at a little creole restaurant in Ivoryton, CT. My daughter teaches middle school in Philadelphia, so I'm an empty nester with 6 cats and a chef husband.

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: KC!! Thank you so much for the wonderful package, I loved the extra little note card with the vintage postcard stamp on it, and the vintage stamps were so perfect! You included a lot of my favorites plus a few I have never seen before. That Copernicus stamp is pretty cool, as is my favorite, the Georgia Okeeffe stamp. Also, how cool that you raised that beautiful butterfly along with so many others! Thanks again! Micaela

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! :)
