About Me

Update 9/2022- My local post office has a machine that rips up mail AND leaves black smudges (wheels?) on all my incoming mail. UGH! They are waiting on new equip! If you send less than sturdy handmade postcards, chances are they will not make it past the machines.

Everyday day I wake up and make the decision to be kind, to give hearts because it's the VERY LEAST I can do to be a good & kind person - I can be the change I want in the world...

  • "Create whatever causes a revolution in your heart."

  • “The universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them.”

  • “Be the weirdo who dares to enjoy.”

Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear

PHOTOs- I take photos of all my swaps & envie's before I send them out - so I will email a copy of the photos if something goes awry or gaga with the US post to verify that I'm not a flaker or flaking. Please let me know if there's a problem and I'll gladly send it again. Thank a Postie for all their hard work for us crafty swappers.

I will contact you if my swap doesn't get there within a reasonable time because I like to know if the time & effort I spent making a treasure made it to you. Unless overseas, then I generally wait 30days or more. But please, do me the CURTSEY of acknowledging my efforts timely.
Owl Post

Aloha! I give ❤️❤️ BECAUSE in a world full of people judging, criticizing, thumbs up/down, like/disliking everything, if someone took the time out of their day to buy a stamp, send a card/note/letter, walk to the mailbox, etc... just to brighten my day, then I am grateful because nobody is forced to do anything they don't want to do.

So thanks in advance for giving of YOUR TIME, spending YOUR money to mail me your special creations. You didn't have to share so that speaks volumes of your character - in my humble opinion...if your dislike list is long, this too says much of your character. I'm here to learn and experience other people, not just "stuff" & "things".

I put a lot of thought & 💕 into sending out your happy mail because I want to bring a smile to your door.

Comment: OMG your flipbook is gorgeous !! Thank you for thinking of my daughter as well and for all the extra goodies. I love all of them but JK stood out because I got married so young, I missed out having a fun innocent childhood memories and had so many responsibilities that I tried so hard to not upset the elders, my daughter on the other hand just love V visual and voice. Take care

I was super excited to see your response- I love blinging it out for you! So happy you and your daughter liked it and thank you letting me know the reasons behind the bias preferences!
