About Me

PLEASE contact me if you have NOT received a swap from me in a timely manner. I always send my swaps by the due date. If you have not received a swap, I will GLADLY resend. So, please contact me before rating a 1 or 3.

My favorite mail art is sending/receiving postcards, both store-bought & handmade. I enjoy sending the cards through the mail WITHOUT an envelope -- live life dangerously!!!

I love birds, real & crafted. I have a cockatiel who has been my pet for about 16 years. I love to craft with birds -- I have various rubber stamp bird images (from desert dweller - quail & roadrunner to tropical storks of various kinds). I love die cutting bird images & sewing them on postcards & ATC's.

Favorite Books

FAVORITE Books: science fiction, mysteries.

Favorite authors: CJ Cherryh, Geo RR Martin, Dana Stabenow

Favorite Television

Game of Thrones | NCIS | Orphan Black | Chicago Fire | Chicago PD

new passion: The Expanse

Favorite Crafts

I've crafted most of my adult life; I've quilted, cross-stitched, scrapbooked (including Project Life) and now my biggest passion is for paper-crafting. I make lots of greeting cards, ATC's and post-cards. I have recently gotten a Gelli plate and am attempting to learn more about monoprinting.

I love earth tones -- browns, greys, greens, blues. I'll tolerate pink but it's NOT at the top of the favorite colors list!!! I'm NOT a fan of neons, though I'm sure my teen-aged granddaughter would love it!!!

Swapping

Postage stamps, washi tape, book paper (new and/or vintage), baker's twine, unusual ephemera -- any of these items in earth tones will be MOST welcome.

I'm a dietitian by training and a public health nutritionist by employment (at present). I LOVE food and LOVE receiving food packaging/magazine advertisements from overseas. Some of my favorites that I've gotten in swaps are just food ads torn out of British & Aussie magazines; the packaging from food products in So. America & UAE. Sounds silly, but one of my favorite pen holders is the peanut butter container that I purchased in Canada > 20 years ago. Skippy is ubiquitous but it's cooler from Canada. :)

If you're reading my profile and are going to be RECEIVING from me, please let me know if there's something in particular that you're in need of. I've sent LOTS of deli paper overseas (South America, Australia and UK) to swappers who don't have the access to crafting supplies that we do in the US. I'm a Christian who believes in karma & the Golden Rule.

Comment: Hi Margaret! Thank you for the bird postcard! I haven't seen temps here in the 70's since early last month. Our high today is 45 - but that is to be expected here in New England! I am having a wonderful Autumn season, I love it!
Response: Thanks for the heart. Much appreciated. I had fun making that postcard and I'm glad that you liked it. Happy swapping

Comment: It's been a while since I saw a genuine Snap Crackle or Pop. We eat mostly generic cereal with weird un-famous mascots. Your Clapper audiobook sounds interesting!

Comment: Thanks for the biggie Chunk! I might have to try audio books. Sounds like FUN! Do you read Janet Evanovich? I highly recommend the Stephanie PLUM series. You will find yourself laughing out loud! Happy fall!
Response: Thanks for the heart. I read Evanovich for a few years, but lately I haven't read her stuff. A few of the female mystery writers just lost me. I may have to pick the Stephanie books back up again. Happy swapping.
