Favorite Crafts

I enjoy swapping inchies, stickers, playing cards (not in sets, just single images of any size or game, new or vintage, small or standard size), fortunes from fortune cookies, junk journal items, bookmarks, postage stamps, recipe cards, rubber stamped images,and postcards.

I like all sorts of postcards for my collection, including recipe, tourist, art, weird, map cards, vintage, photo, multi view,free ad and handmade postcards. I collect Catholic holy cards and prayer cards.

I collect U.S. and worldwide mint and used postage stamps, interesting postmarks and First Day Covers. Thank you for your kindness.

I recently started a junk journal collection of decorated envelopes. It would be nice if you prettied up the front of the envelope before mailing. Just a thought and small request.

I enjoy all kinds of postcards you may send, written or unwritten in an envelope, your choice. I am starting to join more hand crafted and chunk o cardboard style postcards,open to personal trades too.

Most stamp collectors like new and undamaged postage stamps. I actually enjoy all the old ones that are not in such good condition. I find the old intaglio stamps very fascinating.

About Me

My favorite animal is the bunny rabbit. I also like camels and elephants. We have an orange and a brown tabby who rule the household and we love them!

I would like to tell everyone that if you get flaked on in any swap, that I would enjoy sending you whatever you missed. I join all sorts of swaps, so message me and I will send you something!

Thank you to all who helped me to complete my collection of 50 U.S. map postcards and covers. Now I am starting to collect a postmark from every country in the world on an envelope or a postcard.

Please note I do not accept food items.Also I don't need or care for reward stickers or emoji stickers or loose glitter.

shirleyinCA rated for 3-2-1 Your Choice #4 on Sep 8, 2022
Comment: Thanks for great items and extras! I love that Firestone Walker coaster with lion that can be punched out to stand up!!!!! Cool Scandinavian flag postage ad card, too. Hope your See's shop had postcards for you. Last year they had a nice Christmas ad card, too with a classic red pick up truck on it, like in so many of the Hallmark Christmas movies! Love See's, so i go often -- I'll let you know if I spy new ads or stickers there. I haven't found ad cards at Art from Scrap, but you never know, it's a very quirky place!

Hello Barbara, I think my rabbit postcard for CPG: Cut n Paste PC #328363 (Global) is lost. It's been 8 weeks since I mailed it. So I dropped another Cut n Paste PC in the mail today (not a rabbit this time). Fingers-crossed that it arrives by May 20.

Hi Barbara!

Hope you are well. Thanks for the swap ideas on the group page. I will add one or two of those next month.

Hugs Indira

Hi, Barbara, Thanks for the encouraging comment. Here is a saying a saw on a poster many years ago: "We are an Easter People and Hallelujah is our Song". Have a wonderful and blessed Easter. Take care, Nathalie
