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)

OMGosh I love your Pomegranate Post zine with the mix of handcarved stamps and postage stamps. Impressive work and such a lovely thank you gift. The envelope is well done too.

I quite enjoyed hosting the HCSI MAJ swaps.

I will continue to host the Stamp & Pass swaps to continue the collective fun, but in a smaller format.

Thank you for finishing my HCSI MAJ deco and mailing it back to me. You were so generous to to send a print (on handmade paper) of the whole stamp you used for your page and the postage stamps that inspired it. Beautiful work! P.S. I also really like the envelope.
