About Me

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! Your caterpillar (so cute, thanks for the hand drawing and the vintage postage!) envie took quite a trip somewhere before it found me. Lol Oh what a story I wish it could tell. Reminds me of what could/would have happened with pony express. Oh the stories I could make up. Lol That to me, adds to the charm of your cool package! I'm sure it got wet at some point but everything is awesome. I'm so glad you altered a file folder to hold it all as it provided some protection. I love the images stamped here and there, book pages, vintage cards those antique receipts and more. You spoiled me! Thank you for another amazing swap! And best news ever you got to hug your daughter!! ❤️

Comment: Yes, indeed we do lose track of the little things... Thank you for sharing. The card you sent is great!
Comment: Hi KC! Wow, you sent me way too ! Although I do appreciate extras. But I'm one who rates on the swap itself & still gave a heart. But thank you very much for 5 + 2 extra note cards, 3 great postcards, 2 stamps ( which wasn't necessary to send) and not sure what the white thing is ( a box I'm guessing. But loving what you sent very very much!

Thank you so much. I really love this stamped image. And the unicorn is great too. I'll be doing a unicorn swap soon, so it will be perfect for that. Thanks again.

Wow... Mom went to the mailbox today and there was mail from the gang! She was all googly eyes over it and tried to hang it on her bulletin board but I told her it had my name on it. Thank you for the most pawesome postcard ever!

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! :)
