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.

Comment: Hi Jackie! Received your swap today and TYVM for the Joy Christmas card, your nice note of Christmas sentiment, and the awesome Christmas sticker sheet. Love all! OMG, Wherever did you get the Snowman stationery sheet? I'm a big lover of Snowmen and collect just anything on them! I have never seen Snowman stationery paper before. I hope your Thanksgiving was fabulous and hope your Christmas will be too, at your sister's and then at your S-I-L's. Our Christmas will spent here in our house. We have a pretty large house and it's always been the tradition to Christmas here, with our 5 adult children and 11 grand kids. Happy Christmas !
Response: You're welcome! Glad you liked it! The snowman stationery I've had for awhile and most likely bought at Michael's Crafts (single scrapbook paper) or possibly at Office Depot/Max as xmas stationery Thanks for the heart!

Comment: Thank you for the super cute Snoopy Thanksgiving postcard. I do like Thanksgiving and this year we're keeping it very simple as well. The turkey stamp is such a great stamp. I'm adding that to my collection.

Comment: Thank you for the Gorey PC - in color! I have two b&w PC books of his works, and I find them hard to share! There is a campaign to get him on a postage stamp, and I sure hope it's successful.

Thank you for being the ONLY person in the Int’l Stamp Collectors group who actually returned my postage stamp bags. I made over a dozen bags in the time I was part of the group but have only received two back and they’re both from you! I 💙 your honesty! A million thanks!!! (P.S. Awesome idea to coordinate your own swaps in USA only. I image all my other bags are lost overseas. sad).
