My Pastime of Choice - Sewing

I love all kinds of crafts and have tried many over the years but I always come back to SEWING.

I like to make simple projects that I can get done quickly.

You will not find me trying to sew complicated clothing or quilt patterns. I enjoy the process of putting together the colors and patterns.

I am always on the lookout for lace, ricrac, buttons and other trimmings to jazz up my sewing projects.


I enjoy the simplicity of the postcard swaps. I do not organize and save every postcard that is sent to me. I save most of them on a bulletin board in my office at home and the one at work. It is covered in layers and I pull some off and let them go when it gets too thick.

I like vintage and handmade postcards but I am happy with any card that I get. I prefer my postcards sent naked with a message written on the back unless the swaps asks for otherwise. Don’t worry about what to write on the card – use a famous quote or draw me a picture if you can’t think of anything to say.

Sending Late

You do not need to notify me if you are sending a few days late. I never check the postmark dates so I will never notice. Swaps are supposed to be fun so please do not stress out!

I always check with my partners before I ever rate a 1. Even if you are super,crazy late you will have a chance to let me know before I zap you with a 1.

I know that some of you are very precice and will check dates on the postage. I will notify you if I have an unexpected delay.


Comment: loved the coasters and extras, nice sewing/ there being used as I write. Thank you again.
Response: I am glad you liked them. Enjoy
Comment: Thanks for the awesome cookbook!
mammadoo rated for Heart Recycled Postcard on Feb 17, 2012
Comment: love that heart shape. I came postage due 20 cents but the mailman left it in the box so don't think I will have to pay. It's interesting because you put a Forever stamp on it but guess since it was odd shaped it cost more. Food for thought in the future.

Response: I am glad it made it. I almost put the resend in a box just to make sure it arrived. I decided not to but I worried about it making it the 2nd time.
