About Me

Hi I'm Heather. I am obsessed with paper crafting and collecting old paper. In my free time I make journals, planners, altered books and bits to go in them. I especially loved sending and receiving handmade items that can go into journals. I also have a new found love for ATC's and postcards.

Things I'm Looking For

--Small ephemera for ATC's

--Dyed tracing papers and other dyed papers

--Pretty book covers

--Large decorative brads

--Glass or paper beads

Favorite Books

I haven't been reading a lot lately. My go to for long car rides is Libravox, I love listening to Horatio Alger Jr. books. My favorite being Ragged Dick.

My all time favorite book is She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb. and of course Harry Potter, Hunger Games series and the Divergent books. I also love VC Andrews. My favorite being the Dawn (Cutler) series.

Movies and TV

I don't watch TV. I have the TV on most of the time, buts it's usually for background noise and lighting. I have a couple shows on Hulu I keep up with like The Handmaids Tale and Good Girls.

Swapping and Rating

--I will always send my swaps on time.

--I always rate as soon as i open a swap.

--If you do not receive something from me please contact me before rating. I will do whats needed to fix it. If you ever get something from me and postage is due please contact me so I can make it right.

--Please rate me. I like to know you got what i sent. I put a lot of time effort and heart into my handmade swaps. Its heart breaking to not get rated for them. I will never understand how someone can reply to a message to tell me that yes they got it, and still not rate me. Even if you don't like it, it's just rude not to rate.

Comment: I love your envelope and everything inside. I will enjoy thinking of you while I'm drinking peach tea! Thank you so much.
Comment: Oh no. The worst is to keep a Feral cat contained (your apt). Not a very nice present at all with all you went thru. Thank you for the postcard. The black kitty looks similar to our Minx.
