About Me

I love paper. Books, making books, altering books, cards, stamping, snail 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.

TLDR - please contact me before giving me a bad rating for anything.

Challenging Circumstances

March 28 - UPDATE Happy Spring! I'm all caught up on the swaps that happened earlier in the month when CT weather got crazy. Thank you all for your patience in receiving these swaps and your understanding of the circumstances for late sends.

Thanks again for your patience, and Cheers! kc

March 23 - UPDATE After losing power (and heat and running water and all the contents in my refrigerator) for 5 days and then having ANOTHER nor'easter (4th in 3 weeks - this is getting ridiculous) things are getting back on track here in CTl!

I thank everyone for their patience as I literally dig out of this!!! I am chipping away at the swaps that dates have passed or are fast approaching.

I appreciate everyone's patience as I catch up, both in rating (I didn't get mail for a couple of days too) and sending out my swaps. My goal is to be caught in the next couple of days. I don't want to just slap my envelopes together, just to say they are mailed.

Feel free to contact me if you have some concerns, and I will prioritize your swap.

Comment: It came :). Thankyou. I love graphic 45 to. I have balcony garden. If ever want swap let me know :)

Comment: Thanks for the beautifull fairytale postcard illustrated by Rackham. I love fairytales and yes many fairytales, the original versions, are dark and they where never ment to enjoy children by reading them. I have a book from the brothers grimm illustrated by Anton Pieck, And they are not the cute children's versions ;) but I love those stories.
Response: I used to love the old folk songs too. None of them were little ditties, but all about betrayal and murder and lost loves.
