About Me

I enjoy the world and the people in it!

I'm mostly in swapbot for the postcards and the journals and the picture swapping, but I'll join other things from time to time! Anything journally or papery/ephemera is great for my journals!

Favorite Things

Photography, Nature, Journals, Sending Mail, Receiving mail.

I love learning about other places.

favorite colors are orange, blue, and green.

I love to run. I don't need running supplies, but I definitely love running quotes and anything that depicts this type of movement.

Comic book art

Religious Art

Alice in Wonderland art both happy and dark

Favorite Books

The Master and Margarita, King Rat, Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, Un Lun Dun.


I'm totally new at this. I only recently got a binder with baseball card holders to organize my coupons and I haven't totally organized yet. It really does seem to be worth it.

Coupon wishlist Vegetables/sides meats eight o clock bean coffee pharmacy transfer coupons (the ones where you get gift cards for transferring prescriptions) Easy Ups or Good Nights coupons

I do not need baby coupons. I am willing to set baby coupons aside for someone else that asks for them and mail them, but otherwise baby coupons will be given to random people in the baby aisle.




anything i can decorate a journal with


deco tape


temporary tattoos (for the kids)

Favorite Books

The Life of Pi

Anansi Boys

Un Lun Dun

King Rat

P.S. I Love You

Bonesetter's Daughter


I love postcards! I love religious art, icons, and cathedrals! I love comic book art. I love generally weird and wacky ones! I love a dark sense of humor! I also have kids, so any cards kid related (or princess related or pink or monster truck related or airplane or train related) will be wonderful!


I have a 4 year old boy and a 3 year old girl.

My daughter loves crafts! She has her own "journal" that she's working on with paints and crayons and markers and stickers and ribbons and buttons.

She also loves pink and purple, babies, Tinker Bell, Princesses, temporary tattoos, and girlie things.

My son is not so much into art, but he likes to color. He also loves monster trucks, cars, trains, and planes. He loves Cars the movie, and Thomas. Even if it's just a coloring sheet featuring these, he'll be happy.

Comment: I never got my scanography. It's sad really. I loved working on this so much. I was so excited to see if I would get something unique - instead I got flaked on.

Comment: Hmmm ... I appreciate the communication at first, but the fact that you haven't logged in in over a month makes me worry that I will never, in fact, receive this swap. I hope everything is okay. If/when you are able to send, I will be more than happy to re-rate! Great idea for a journal!

Comment: I received your photos. I don't rate down for lateness esp. when you've informed me about it early on. But you mark sent on March 31st (deadline March 21) when the postmark actually said April 12th. No communication after the initial pm to me. I don't know if you chose to keep my follow-up pms to you as new or you simply ignored them (since they are unread until now). But I got your photos and so thank you.

Comment: Thanks so much for the tips! I'll need to check-out the book you suggested, if I ever get the time! Your seagull picture is lovely! I did the same with two ladybugs on my mailbox ... they ran into each other (looking like they were kissing). :-)

LOVE the seagull pic-and you are SO right about sometimes needing the patience to wait for the best image to present itself to you! Thanks so much for another great swap!

You're the swap coordinator and you didn't send me your dream swap... I'm about this close to rate you 1 and I know there is about 1 month to arrive ind Brazil, but till now you're flaking it!

lou on Apr 17, 2011:

Joy, I need to hear from you. I was the host of the swap you joined, please see private message I sent to you.

weeviljing on Apr 10, 2011:

Hi Joy, I sent you a pm regarding the Love Those Wheels swap. I see you haven't read it. I would appreciate a reply back. Thanks a bunch. :)

Hi Jo :) I sent you an email but noticed you haven't read it yet lol. It was about the It's Frameable swap. Did you get it?

Hugs Shanell

I'm really sorry to hear about your Grandma (via the It's a Snap update). Sending hugs and healing vibes your way.

DeniseN10ec on Mar 11, 2011:

I did more research and found that I can not get anything to post from Flickr. I went to photobucket to find a graphic and I did save this one. You can right click on the graphic go to properties copy and paste the address and use the rest of the code and it should work. Sorry ittook so long to reply but have not been on the internet much. Hope all is well.

Lauriez on Feb 17, 2011:

WOW-you really did it---you made a chicken house beautiful! Very cool pic-thanks so much for sending! Happy swapping & shooting! ~hugs~

NikonGoddess on Jan 25, 2011:

I carry a camera everywhere I go too. Tell your hubby you see the beauty that others walk by, and you just want to capture the moment. You made my soul smile today. Thank you!
