About Me

Although I appreciate everything people send me, at this time I would ask that you not send extras. I am trying to seriously downsize in anticipation of moving. Thanks!

Random things about me:

  • Native Californian; reluctant Utahn
  • Dislike winter
  • Drawn to the whimsical
  • Love all things paper
  • Like to wrap presents
  • Prefer nonfiction
  • Puppy paws and puppy breath are the best smells (yay for Frito Feet)
  • Like to make cards
  • Like most colors
  • Am glad our peach orchard is getting smaller

How I Swap

I rate according to the quality of the swap. I am easygoing and not stingy with 5s and hearts if I feel there is effort put into the swap. I do not expect extras.

If I get you as a partner, I will read your profile, look at your Flickr, Etsy, or anything else on SB in order to get a sense of your likes, dislikes, and style. I will put my best effort into swapping something I think you will love. I usually send little extras, but expect you to rate only on the quality of the swap itself.

I expect (and will give in return) timely communication and ratings.

I do not lightly rate someone down. I consider myself to be understanding and kind. However, if I feel that someone has egregiously taken advantage of that understanding nature, I will rate accordingly.

Things I Love/Hoard

Pretty wrapping supplies

Recipes using fresh peaches

Embroidery Floss

Paper stuff

Vintage paper stuff

New paper stuff

Crepe paper, kraft paper, manila paper, copy paper, tissue paper, toilet paper (!), cardboard, chipboard .... and the list goes on.

I love licorice pastels (but not so much plain black licorice)

I love chocolate with nuts (but not so much chocolate without nuts)

I like most everything and every flavor of everything!!!


Comment: Absolutely incredible! Best mini pocket letter I have ever seen or received! Each ATC has so much lovely detail and I like the creative way you added elements on the outer sleeve, too! Classy Halloween twine and ribbon and washi. Then the wonderful stickers and glassine envelopes of goodies: spider paperclips - wow! - and I will have too much fun using the Halloween postage and die cuts this month! Cute Halloween stationery for your letter. I bet your porch looks lovely; we have lots of pumpkins, old crates,mums and a scarecrow decorating our porch and front flower bed for autumn. Thanks also for the delightful assortment of Anderson Design national park postcards to add to my collection, I just love their work! Many thanks for really making my day with your amazing swap!

thanks For the WW movie list - I have only given 10 5-star ratings so far this year (out of 230+ films) and The Way, Way Back was one of them! I will bump Raise the Red Lantern up in my queue. I also love In the Mood for Love. Have you seen the rest of the "trilogy"?

Thank you sooooo much Janet! I loved your angel pocket letter. It was amazing and so well put together. Thanks for the stamps which I love the most and the bandaids! Even the vintage Halloween Victorian style backing. Wish I could have rated you properly for this bc you definitely deserved some hearts. 💋
