About Me

Jan 28, 2023 - away from the Internet for vaca!! Will answer all pms, check mail and rate when I return in a week.

I host, give away rake and swap at Cheap Postage Swaps, Tags and Fun

I host offsite at Instagram and on Facebook as well as at atcsforall.com

I enjoy crochet, origami, zines, atcs, collage, Sharpies and pretty much anything to do with paper.

We are empty nesters so I try not to accumulate too many extras. I've run down my papers but um, the yarn is taking over, lol!

Currently destashing

  • glass beads and jewelry findings
  • washi tapes samples
  • paper napkins for decoupage

Ask me for a swap for these!

Styles I like: modern farmhouse, beach/tropical; clean/IKEA, shabby chic, hand drawn, and of course, Hello Kitty.

Styles I like less: victorian/vintage, lace, nudes, gothic/dark or religious, cutesy, kitschy country.

  • yarn, cotton or worsted
  • handmade or fun soaps, sugar scrubs
  • stud earrings - sterling silver or stainless
  • good quality stickers (botanical, origami, seasonal)
  • items to make baby toys - rattle rings or rattle inserts, safety eyes, plastic bone rings, etc

ALLERGIES: Smoke, cat hair.

I am an early sender and a prompt rater. Please contact me if you have not received an item or a rating.

Also, I take most items to the PO to be weighed but sometimes what I think are simple flat envies go over an ounce and I don't realize it. If you get anything from me that comes postage due, please let me know and I'll send it to you!

Handcrafted Things I tend to send: zines, crochet items, pocket letters, ephemera, atcs, anything origami, addy labels + swap cards, handmade notecards,

marles rated for CPG Just a Note #19 - US on Feb 1, 2023
Comment: Thank you for everything. No idea what happened with the first note. I'm in a new development and others have complained about the post service. I honestly had a problem so far. Enjoy your vacation! I had covid the week before I moved in Oct so that was a challenge. No issues with taste or smell but the exhaustion lasted about 2 months:(

Comment: Thanks so much for the beautiful postcard! Sorry to hear you had covid but glad it was mild and glad you are on the mend. Doing all that crocheting you couldn't have felt too bad. When I'm sick I don't normally crochet. Good that you still had an appetite. Is your sense of taste back? Enjoy your cruise! You totally deserve it.

I received the card you sent me for "CPG Handmade Valentine's Day Card - US" today and rated my partner. Thank you so much! No one I know celebrates Valentine's Day in Germany. But I lived in South Korea for a while - and let's just say: they take it serious. Really serious. You can't escape it for about a week before. Hearts, pink, and white everywhere. Every store has Valentine's themed short-term products or food items... Dinner in pajamas sounds like a lovely thing to do, though. I might have to copy that tradition! ^^
