About Me

I love to make mail-art, especially handmade postcards. Collage is my favorite, but I'm trying to get better at painting and drawing. I also like to write letters--long ones.

I like swearing, irony, sarcasm, bad puns and terrible jokes. My favorite color is orange, but blue, magenta and yellow are also nice.

Probably my biggest pet-peeve is when people write, "Hope you like this card" as the entire message and then sign their name. Please. Write something. Write ANYTHING. I don't care if you list the contents of your purse, your stomach, or your kid's nose. Just write SOMETHING! and THEN you can write, "Hope you like this card." I love art, but I love a hearty message even more!

Handmade is great no matter what. I mean it. If you make it, I'll appreciate it. I always prefer handmade to store-bought.

Store-bought's okay if it's funny, or has a cat on it, or a donkey, or a fox. Art postcards (esp. Edward Hopper/surrealist/modern) are also welcome.

Anything related to the Boston Red Sox or Toronto Blue Jays would make my day!

Please NO: food, gum, tea, fragrances, butterflies or anything Disney.

Comment: Thanks TT, what fun washi. Your card reminded me of what we used to chant back in the day: "No more pencils no more books, No more teacher's dirty looks!" I guess pencils & books are fast becoming obsolete. I sent you a washi pc on 6/5. Hope it didn't go to the great postal graveyard instead.
Response: I remembered that same song when I made it! :-) Re: yours: I don't believe I've received it, but remind me what it looked like. (I usually get the mail and rate it right away, but I've been getting a lot more mail than usual lately, so maybe it's me.)

Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful postcard! I love all the purple stamps that you used. I inherited my husband's grandfathers stamp collection. It's neat to see all of the beautiful stamps that are out there.

Comment: Thanks for your card & it was thoughtful of you to send it in an envie, tho that's really just my preference for store-bought cards. I like the owl phrase even tho I don't know anything @ Twin Peaks, nor have a TV. It just sounds like something I'd want to interject into a boring conversation!Glad to hear you're enjoying drawing lately. Maybe you'll inspire me to give it a try. I keep saying I will, but procrastination is my middle name!

Comment: I LOVE your card! Australia is one of my favorite places! I got to take a group of students there for a trip up the eastern coast from Sydney to Cairns. I also absolutely love AZ. I have lived her over 50 years, and have only seen a rattler once on a hike in the Superstition Mtns. They pretty much don't want to see you and stay away as much as they can. I have never seen a scorpion in my house although depending on where you live, that can happen. Sedona is gorgeous, and so is the Verde Valley area. So much to explore here and so many different kinds of climate and terrain. I love the desert best. Come visit!

Response: I'm so glad you liked it! I had a lot of fun drawing them. :-) I love guinea pigs too and would totally get one if I didn't have cats.

Popped over to say that no one has rated me for the Send Me A Postcard 2 swap and I sent all at the same time, so the post office must have eaten the entire stack. Boo! Will try hard to resend tomorrow, if not then Tuesday. Sorry!
