About Me

Profile edited: July 2021.

I am Beth from Oregon, USA. I'm married with no children. Sadly, we had to say goodbye earlier this year to our little furry feline who brought us much joy and a little bit of fur. =^..^=

I am a born-again Christian, a follower of Jesus Christ.

Random things I enjoy:

  • Rock/mineral hunting on beaches and "in the middle of nowhere.”
  • Getting together with friends for fellowship and card games.
  • Doing jigsaw puzzles.
  • Organizing my craft room.
  • Keeping the lost art of letter writing alive by writing to my pen pals all over the world.
  • "Treasure hunting" at thrift stores, garage sales, and estate sales, and finding cool paper crafting or letter writing items.
  • Receiving colorful snail mail in decorated envelopes (white ones are so boring!)
  • Sending colorful snail mail to brighten up someone’s day!
  • 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 pretty papers, stamps, pens, markers, washi tape, etc. I use them to make cards and envelopes for swapping, writing to my pen pals, and for encouraging/brightening up the lives of others with “a handmade card sent to them via snail mail.” FAVORITE THEMES: Flowers 🌸 , song birds, cats 🐈, dragonflies, snails 🐌 (whimsical only), tea/coffee, postal, friendship, or pen pal related 🖊.

FAVORITE COLORS: All the happy, bright colorful ones! As for metallics, I prefer gold or copper over silver.

Wish List

  • UNUSED USA POSTAGE: Vintage (the kind you have to lick or glue to seal) or the current self stick kind.
  • ADDRESS LABELS: With my address on them. Homemade works!
  • FLAT STICKERS: In my preferred themes above; I especially love colorful flowers. Please do not send dimensional stickers.
  • DIE CUT FRAMES that I can stamp a sentiment in. Love stitched, fancy, scalloped, etc. White card stock preferred.
  • STARBUCKS gift card, for a coffee or other treat every once in awhile.
  • TEA: green tea varieties (jasmine, toasted rice, and other "earthy" ones); I enjoy tropical additives (figs, pineapple, etc.). I like oolong tea. For herbal, lavender is nice. (Please see my tea dislikes below.)

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 embellishments
  • Tea in these flavors: plain mint, plain lemon, tea that brews up red in color (it’s usually heavy on hibiscus and it’s too tart for me), licorice. I don’t care for rooibus tea, nor black tea.


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.

I will rate upon receiving your swap or shortly thereafter. I would appreciate you doing the same for me.
