About Me

You can find hosting, rak-ing and swapping 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. I miss painting pottery since I sold my paint-your-own-pottery studio.

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.

  • mini zines!
  • good quality stickers (botanical, origami, seasonal)
  • Hello Kitty flat items
  • washi tape
  • yuzen paper or origami paper
  • asian or botanical ephemera for collage
  • antique book pages or music sheets for collage
  • die cuts, fussy cutouts for collage

  • stud earrings - silver or stainless
  • Fav Postcards - travel, greetings from, beach/tropical, snarky, wild birds/songbirds, asian, Hello Kitty, Greece, fine art repros, Key West, chickens/hens/roosters, ocean.

No thanks! Things I don't need or care to receive:

  • fabric/lace/ribbon (have too much already!!)
  • plain papers or paper scraps
  • incense or anything with a strong odor
  • herbal or green teas
  • anything licensed unless it's kawaii:)
  • anything religious
  • fabric - I can't sew nor have to time to learn
  • Please NO dollar store cosmetics, candles, candy/food, or personal care products - thanx!

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!

Crafty Things I Make and Send

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

Other things I like to send: postcards, profile surprises, stash (I have lots of stash), food/tea/candy, notecards, recipe cards, penpal letters, local/tourist items.
