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 19 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 passions: The Expanse | Schitt's Creek

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. My adult daughter & I will craft together -- we made ATC's as thank you gifts for her co-workers. 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, birds (who knew, right?), butterflies, flower die cuts -- any of these items in earth tones will be MOST welcome.

I'm a dietitian by training and have recently retired from the work-a-day world. 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. :)

Comment: Beautiful PC! I was stationed in Korea and flew to Japan on a regular bases while there. I learned a lot about their cultures while there but never had the opportunity to study their art.

Comment: I love My Neighbor Totoro. I mean it's no Howl's Moving Castle or Spirited Away (my fav!) but it is definitely up there!!! There are some movie theaters around here that do special Studio Ghibli screenings and my kids are just getting to the age where they'll appreciate seeing them on a giant screen versus our tv and I'm so excited to share that with them. Thanks for the pc ^_^

Comment: Thank you for the card. My dad liked it - he loves to fish. I wasn't able to get into the books either. I might try again. I will look for "The Expanse".

Hi Margaret! Just letting you know that I mailed out today a replacement for the AAA:Say Something ATC that never arrived. This time I went to the post office counter and had him hand cancel it in front of me so it better make it. It should take a week at the very most to arrive in Arizona from Oregon. Here's hoping this one arrives!
