About Me

Updated May 15, 2024.

I am a born again Christian. I trust and follow Jesus Christ. His death on the cross and resurrection is my hope for eternal life!

Random likes:

  • Rock/mineral hunting on beaches and "in the middle of nowhere.”
  • Getting together with friends for fellowship and card games.
  • Organizing (and reorganizing) my craft room.
  • Creating cheerful cards to brighten people’s days.
  • "Treasure hunting" at thrift stores, garage sales, and estate sales, and finding cool paper crafting or letter writing items.
  • Song birds singing their sweet songs.
  • Meeting other Christians who enjoy my love of paper arts and/or writing letters.
  • Cats (meow!)

Favorite Crafts

I LOVE playing with paper, stamps, inks, etc. to create cards and envelopes for sending encouraging notes to hopefully bring a little sunshine into someone’s day (especially to seniors). Happy snail mail is the best!

FAVORITE THEMES: Flowers, song birds, and cats.

FAVORITE COLORS: I tend to gravitate towards happy, bright colors but all colors have their place in card-making (they can be used as layers, etc.). As for metallics, I prefer gold or copper over silver.

Wish List

  • FLAT STICKERS: Flowers, cats, song birds, scripture. No dimensional stickers.
  • STAMPIN’ UP!: Solid color card stock, DSP (Designer Series Paper) of Flowers, song birds, seashells, cats, dogs, smallish patterns for backgrounds (gingham, stripes, polka dots), ribbon, glossy dots.
  • OTHER PAPER BRANDS: See themes under Stampin’ Up! above.
  • DIE-CUTS/PUNCHED: labels/banners (that I can stamp sentiments on), words (hello, thinking of you).
  • UNUSED USA POSTAGE: Current (self stick) or vintage.
  • ADDRESS LABELS: We can never have too many of these. See my preferred themes above.
  • TEA: Green tea varieties (no lemon or hibiscus).
  • FUN FOLD CARD or FLIP BOOK: I’m intrigued by these and would love some inspiration.
  • A LETTER: Write me a letter and tell me about yourself, your hobbies, etc.

Don’t Care to Receive

We all have our own likes and what you like might not necessarily be what I like. Below is a list of themes or items that just aren’t my thing.

  • Halloween, the Santa side of Christmas
  • Loose glitter, or cards with glitter that shakes off a card and gets all over the place.
  • Mustaches, circus, Hello Kitty, Disney, cartoony, Asian, creepy/crawly bugs or insects, snakes
  • Scented items: Perfume, lotions, incense, candles, make-up
  • Postcards
  • Tourist items (e.g. blank postcards, magnets & keychains)
  • Chipboard or bulky embellishments. It makes for extra postage costs and postage is already so expensive these days.

Promise

I always send out my swaps and usually it's very soon after partners are assigned. If for some reason you do not receive a swap from me, please send me a PM or an e-mail before rating me poorly and I will do the same for you. If the swap got lost, I will resend it.

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful card and pretty decorated envelope and also for the fun surprises inside - definitely happy mail! 😀 Thank you for telling me how you made the card. It looks like an awesome card to make when you are trying to use up those pretty scraps. I’m always looking for scrap busters. The crafty yard sale sounds like an awesome event, and you are right, I would have a great time going with you if I was closer. 🙂 I hope you find a lot of great deals and get to stock up on your supplies - enjoy! See you in the swaps again soon!
Response: You are so very welcome! I spent $50 at the crafty rummage sale, and oh the wonderful goodies I got! 😀

Comment: I like your envelopes a lot, do you use a template to cut them? So far I hand cut mine so if they make templates I would like to know where to find them. Your friend Joy
Response: I’m glad you like my envelopes. I use an envelope punch board by We R Memory Keepers. You can make all sizes and it’s very easy to use. I’ve listed it for years and have made tons of envelopes with it!
