Post Cards

I have discovered that I like strange and unusual postcards! Nothing will offend me I assure you. I've come to value having a few funny and offensive postcards that I've picked up on trips because I have so much cute stuff and not a lot of 'different' stuff. Cute is good, don't get me wrong. But I also value obscure, odd, ugly or just plain ol' wtf. Anything goes with postcards! I also enjoy stickers, doodles, and neat handwriting/lettering. I try hard with lettering, to make it look good and any inspiration I can receive is appreciated.


I love all teas. Really. I don't think there's anything I've had that I haven't enjoyed. Starbucks Tazo teas are always delicious. My favorite Green Tea to date is Dong Wong. I'll try anything :)

Comment: Excellent swap. I really like the papers you coordinated. Did you stamp on the book pages, or did they come that way? What a great idea. Thank you so much for all the vintage and retro goodies you included. I love it all!

Comment: Wow, this swap was really an amazing delight to open. Thank you so much for the beautiful card you created, all of the fabulous stickers, the postcards and the notecard. I also really enjoyed your note. I feel so spoiled! I'd give even more hearts if I could!
JaneInSD rated for YTPC: Mini Tags with Dangles on Nov 18, 2022
Comment: Hi Michelle - thank you SO MUCH for the awesome swap. I love the mini tags with dangles. They are so cute and I can't wait to use them in my journals. The extras you included are so adorable and will fit in great with my crafting. The art supply re-store you described sounds amazing. We don't have anything like that in San Diego - I could get lost in that store for hours. I understand your frustration as to where to sell stuff. I have a very limited group of people I can gift my stuff to, and then I'm like, well, no what? I keep crafting, but don't know what to do with it all.LOL I hope you find your outlet because your stuff is ADORABLE! Thank you for a fantastic swap. You put a huge smile on my face. :-)
Comment: I just received you envelope! I have no idea why it took the post office that long to deliver, but I'm sure glad they did! I love the pocket and all the inserts and especially your creative envelope too! Thank you ~ Love, Karen
Comment: Thank you for the awesome Japanese postcard! ♥️

ultracinematik rated for SSM: Stamped images swap #21 on May 7, 2022
Comment: This is a very generous envelope full of delightful stamped images and tons of extras! My favorite of the extras is the space needle PC (fun style!), but it was tough to choose a favorite! The decorated envelope is absolutely my style. Thank you very much, and I'll find you on IG.
Comment: Thank you so much. I haven't written about my episode. I was at a Walmart when it happened. I still have trouble going into that store. I'm very thankful and yes, it has changed my outlook. I didn't have anything spiritual happen. Though that would have been cool. Every day is a blessing. I'm out of town right now, but maybe I'll write you a letter and tell you about my experience. Thank you for asking ❤️
Response: Only if you find the time or it would be helpful to you in some way. Glad the folder arrived safely. 😀
Comment: Hey Michelle…thanks so much for the triple pocket that you made for me. I love it and I’m enjoying all the goodies that you stuffed in the pockets.
Comment: WOW as always! First of all, the envelope was so fun to receive in the mail. Secondly, the portfolio, oh my goodness. It was such a joy to open and discover all the goodies. You put so much work into and it is so appreciated. THANK YOU. And the cherry on top was the letter! Thank you so much for taking the time to make something so special for me!

Comment: Thank you for the list. It's not snowing here. The weather can't decide if it wants to hang out at 60 or 90!
Piccolo rated for FTLOC#1 ~ Pocket Waterfall Album on Apr 16, 2022
Comment: Michelle! What a lovely package to receive! It was like an extension of my birthday which was last week. Your pocket is really great and so bright and perfect for spring! I love all of the goodies and ephemera. Lots of great stuff! And thanks for the tiny kawaii stickers. I love them! The only reason that I’ve done all the swaps in a short amount of time is because I quitmy job in the beginning of the pandemic. I’ve got too much time on my hands… I’m currently job hunting again. Thanks again! I am on here to spread joy, but it’s nice to receive it sometimes as well. Jenny 🌈🤓
