About Me

I'm 60 years old, married for 30 years and still madly in love with my honey. We have two grown daughters, 3 grandsons, and 1 dog (Benny).

We live in a Minneapolis/St Paul suburb and love it here! Mounds View is a suburb of St Paul so either city works for my mail.

I always rate and I always send. If you don't receive something from me, please let me know and I can resend. I will do the same as this is a courtesy we all prefer.

I'm originally from North Dakota. I've lived in Minnesota for over 30 years. We still have friends and relatives in ND and visit them when we can.

I'm fascinated with junk and art journals. Love to see them and have just started making my own. I'm also making Zines and ATCs and love to see what others make. I also love Label Bags. If you swap LBs and get my name for any swap, please feel free to include LBs.

My hobbies:

Reading, books, visiting bookstores, reading about books, libraries, museums. I love most things books and mail related (authors, stamps, bookstores, libraries, etc). I also enjoy doing genealogy, scrapbooking, rubber stamping and making ATCs, cards, booklets, junk journals.

I love to travel and collect postcards wherever I go. I usually will do a postcard travel journal after I return home.

I love mail, writing letters, fun/unique stamps, Steampunk, mail art, whales, castles, nature walks, Moomins, doodling, pens, typewriters, owls, new notebooks/journals.

Looking for Label Bag swaps, Used Postage swaps.

Comment: Thank you for the big England postcard! Unfortunately I didn't get to see the changing of the guards while I was there, but that just gives me a reason to go back again someday. :)

Ramya rated for Uplifting Article on Jun 11, 2022
Comment: Thank you so much for resending. The note you enclosed was kind and thoughtful. I just adore every part of the articles you sent. Thank you again.Grief during the holidays is so heartbreaking... yes, I have experienced it too. But I love how the theme of the other article was all about "being intentional" in choosing how we spend our time. That is what I set out to do even before my retirement to make the transition smoother. Once again... I so appreciate your resending. Have a wonderful weekend!
Response: Great! I'm so glad it arrived and that you liked it!
