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: Oh my goodness, what a super fun kitty story from "Boo"!! Your letter made me want to meet the members of the Scampoli Flying Tigers - sounds like quite a den of cats! I appreciate the letter (love the black paper and white ink!) and all of the goodies you sent. My husband had a good laugh at the envelope - he bets the post office got a kick out of it too! I hope you and yours are well - we are good here and Romeo, Muffin, Yoda and Oliver send their best to you, take care!

Comment: LOL, I'm really going to enjoy sending the postcards to my grandkids they are going to be shocked LOL, going to be great!!!! Also thank you for the postage stamps you used. I loved reading your memories, they reminded me of the good times we spent on the farm. I think kids nowdays are missing out with all there electronics and luxurious we have. I think my best memory is going to the tiny town gas station and pulling an ice cold soda out of the coke a cola machine on a hot summer day - nothing like it! Stay safe and healthy.
