About Me

my creations on flickr



Hello from Mississippi! My name is Beth! I am so appreciative of those swappers who take the time to send me happy mail ! Every bit of mail makes me feel special because someone went to the trouble just for me! :) Thank you all!

Things I love to do : I enjoy drawing, painting, and photography, gardening, driving/ sightseeing, long walks, writing stories and poems.

I'm in love with nature and all animals. I even love most insects and creepy crawlies!

I have one ancient darling Chihuahua and one sweetheart pit bull, and several precious kitties. I ADORE cats but am really allergic and have to take a lot of meds to have them. Due to the allergies, my feline kids aren't allowed in my bedroom or craft room so your swaps should be safe from cat hair. =D

I've been married to my best friend for 28 years and am the mom of 3 adult children and also work full time as office manager at our manufacturing company. I live on a used-to-be farm in a small town in Mississippi. I have also lived in Alaska, Missouri, Kansas, and Louisiana and have visited 20 states and parts of Canada. Hopefully that list will continue to grow!

About swaps

If I don't receive a rating by you in a reasonable time, I'll contact you to make sure you've received your swap. I never flake on any swap so if you don't get mail from me, something has happened in transit and I would appreciate the chance to resend. I rate swaps received as I open them to make sure no one is missed. I will never give a rating of 1 without first trying to resolve the swap! Please note that I mark sent when my swap gets dropped in the box at the post office. Mail dropped off in the evenings will be postmarked the next day, or on the following Monday if it's dropped into the box on Saturday evening or Sunday.

I like these!

I rate on the swap itself and am generous with hearts- but in case you just want to send something else or it's a profile based swap, here's some info about things I like.

  • a note about your day/ week/ where you live, etc.

  • tell me about your garden or pets!

  • a poem

  • pen or marker

  • foreign coins

  • miscellaneous regular size playing cards, any theme (Even one card I can add to the collection makes me happy!)

  • state magnets

  • cute keychains or key covers

  • Scraps of paper- I have BOXES of scraps

  • Label bags, decos, x-slips, fbs

  • Recipes unless it's a great cookie recipe or I join a specific recipe swap =)

  • religious items/ crosses, but I'm ok with receiving religious holiday cards

  • teacher reward, wedding/ baby/ graduation stickers

  • stick on tattoos

  • tea (I'm very allergic!)

  • anything with cigarette smell

  • lotions or perfume (allergies again)

  • any kind of food/ candy

I never played video games or anything when I was a child but I'm obsessed with Pokemon Go! I LOVE it!


I prefer postcards sent blank, in an envelope, to add to my collection. But if the swap is for naked, then I’m happy for those, too.

Some favorite subjects are:
* animals- any!
* anything autumn
* tourist
* landmarks
* landscapes
* USA states
* the ocean
* insects
* birds
* Disney
* Jetoy
* fantasy
* illustrations
* any of my favorite characters listed
* any holiday, especially Halloween
* art (not crazy about portraits)
* flowers/ gardens
* barns
* covered bridges
* mailboxes
* lighthouses
* steampunk
* Pokemon
* Greetings from...
* Studio Ghibli


I would love for you to send samples of tapes YOU like instead of you trying to match MY likes. I enjoy seeing what others find fun and beautiful. =)

By the way...

  • I'm very allergic to cigarette smoke so please don't send smoky items.

  • I promise to rate quickly for every swap I receive!

  • My goal is to give each swap partner mail that makes them smile :)

  • Oh, and if by some chance you get mail from me with postage due, please let me know and I will immediately mail you the extra stamps or money! Or I can send you the difference through paypal. But please be honest about this and not take advantage of my offer if there really was no postage due. I'm very particular about putting enough postage and weigh and calculate prices on the USPS site. However, I know that things can happen and there are differences of opinion among postal workers, so....

Kawaii Needs Its Own Section!!

Kawaii 101 for inquiring minds!

I love regular and mini note pads and loose sheets, envelopes, letter sheets, pencils, sticker flakes, buttons, deco and washi tapes, postcards if they exist (I've never seen any but who knows??) I love all the characters and themes except the poo ones, Zombitt, and the real children. I like the photo ones of animals and items, though! And all of these:

  • My newest love! ♥ Jinbei San! ♥

  • Hello Kitty ♥

  • My Melody ♥

  • Cinnamaroll ♥

  • Berry Puppy ♥

  • Kuromi ♥

  • Tokidoki ♥

  • Rilakkuma

  • Sentimental Circus ♥

  • Chou-fleur

  • Tarepanda

  • Piggy Girl

  • Puku Puku

  • Kutusita Nyanko ♥

  • Clover's Town

  • Sugar Bear

  • Kinoko No Mori

  • kawaii ghosts

  • fairytales

  • kawaii kitties, puppies, bunnies, bears

  • older Sanrio characters

  • really any kawaii except Zombitt and poo. Really.

Just because it's not on this list doesn't mean I don't like it! I may have not seen it yet! :)

Comment: My eyes may not be Irish, but they sure are smilin' ! As soon as I saw those eyes on the envelope peering at me through the Shamrocks I knew I was in for a treat. And what a treat it was! Thank you for ALL your great choices. The sharks in the pool is a hoot, but it was the Brest Brest Brest cards that had me whooping with delight! You found the spaghetti western one for me!

Comment: Wow! What a generous and thoughtful swap, Beth. Thank you so much for choosing so many wonderful cards based on my profile likes. Love the B&W ones, especially the "Floatable Family" which cracked me up. I'm an admirer of Susan S. Boulet's work & you chose one I hadn't seen, & the little blue elephant in the forest is just so sweet! Your Vista Print cards are cool too-- just wish they made them standard size. BTW, my Flickr page is very outdated. Haven't uploaded anything in a very long time. Thank you again. Everything - including the envie - was a treat!
Response: I’m super happy you enjoyed receiving this swap because I had fun getting it together for you. =) I’d love to see more of your work, if you decide to upload more.
justmesks rated for Three Postcards in an Envelope #5F on Mar 10, 2018
Comment: Wow! I wish I could give you several hearts for this swap. I love all of the postcards! I also love the recipe cards. Most of my collection of recipe cards are the smaller 3 x 5 size. I've just started getting some of these larger ones in some swaps and love them! Thank you so much.
Response: What a sweet comment, thank you! I don’t like to cook but love cookbooks and reading recipes and collecting the cards- go figure. Lol. I’m so glad you liked everything!

Hi! I love the creepy crawlies, too. And I've lived in Alaska. What town were you in? I was stationed at Ft. Richardson, near Anchorage.

sebastian122 on Mar 11, 2018:

Nice timing! I got your mail yesterday, but we were out all day at a SM event so I didn't get to open this until just now! How delightful! You're just too sweet and I can't thank you enough. XOXO

anicka22 on Mar 9, 2018:

Thank you so very, very much for the beautiful washitapesamples ( more then 5) and all the adorable Suzy’s zoo stickers in the pretty envelope with the lovely note. I have a horrible flu, but this cheered me up so much! When I am recovered I will send you a small Thank you ( the adress on the envelope is the right one to send to, I presume?) . Thank you, thank you, thank you!

anicka22 on Feb 6, 2018:

WOW!! I am just speechless for the beautiful washi sample tag you send me. Love the card, you're note and the beautiful adorable samples you send me!! Thank you so very, very, very much!!! You made me so happy with this mail.

sebastian122 on Jan 4, 2018:

Oh, yeah, baby!

HippieChick on Dec 30, 2017:

Thank you for the adorable kawaii goodies. I was a casual collector in my 20's but it got a little crazy so I backed away. It is nice to have a small assortment available though.

Heirloom on Dec 27, 2017:

Wishing you a Super-Fancy New Year!

ChrisAnne on Dec 27, 2017:

Thank you for the Kawaii goodies. They are cute, but I'm just not sure I get the craze. I will definitely find a good use for all of my new goodies.

Bhindblueeyes on Dec 27, 2017:

Thank you for the kawaii!!!! What a surprise and lovely treat in my mailbox!!

fishsteak on Dec 23, 2017:

Thanks so much for the extra kawaii goodies for the FOPS swap. It's really nice of you to try and convert others to the kawaii life, haha. Although I don't need much convincing. Everything is really too cute!
