About Me

I enjoy connecting to people around the globe through the postal system and mail art. I collect postage stamps, bus and train tickets, and other ephemeral bits of everyday life.

I should spend more time outside, so I'm off to swim, or just float and watch the clouds. (gif by L. Boglio)

Favorite Music

Some favorite artists: Miriam Makeba, Keith Jarrett, Chopin, Dave Brubeck Thank You, Bill Evans, Chet Baker, Bach, Baguette Quartette, Rupa and the April Fishes, Beethoven, Tango No. 9, Vince Guaraldi, Andres Segovia, Allman Brothers, Camille, Sanjay Divecha, Lyle Lovett, Decemberists, Jessica Fichot

Some things I like

Comment: Thank you so much for the gorgeous ATC! (and the stamped envelope - I wonder if everyone who gets into carving does a ginkgo leaf - there's something very appealing about them) The seahorse print you sent in the last swap is off being matted right now. :-)

Comment: WOW, what an amazing swap to receive. I adore these, especially the ATC (strong contender for favorite to date). I feel so inspired now to learn more about carving and printing! I haven't tried multi-block printing yet, but maybe I'll get there eventually - absolutely love your results - I'll definitely frame the seahorse! Thank you so much - here is an extra bonus ❤!

Comment: Thank you- I love how your ATC turned out-beautiful! My lilacs have not bloomed yet, but soon, usually around Mother's Day. I have been covering the new ones nearly every night lately as it as been dipping below freezing. Lilac scent is really my favorite, but you can never find anything like a candle, soap, etc. that actually smells like the real thing, so when they bloom I am just constantly sticking my face in them and inhaling. Even when we are on walks and it's someone else's lilac near the sidewalk!

Comment: Amy, thank you so much for sharing your reality. I may not know the entire story, but I have dealing with similar situations, and it can be tough. However, there are good days as well, and I hope you experience them more than once in a while. Aside from everything else that's going, I do hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. Sending love and happiness your way! 😊💖

Hi Eclectonote. I got your HMPC tag of the pink raccoon block print. So well done. Growing up in Toronto we often saw raccoons. As a child, we even had one as a pet for a few weeks. Their paws are so soft and gentle (their teeth, not so gentle). P.S. Really pretty postage stamps too.

I wanted to let you know that I love the B&W polaroids that you sent...3 instead of just 2!! I didn't know B&W film was available; I think I like it better than color. Thanks again!! -- PenPaperPostage

Sorry, got lost trying to find the Temple of Small Gods the other night! Welcome to Ankh-Morpork. There be dragons here, but they are mostly harmless, at least according to Lady Sybil.

Thanks for the glittery Emma Peel ATC for the MMH tag! It is the second bit of glittery mail I received today and I am most pleased. ^_^

THANK YOU for the amazing presidential portrait -- the stamp is amazing, and I really enjoyed how you used it as well. Peace :)
