My focus word for 2021 is MANIFEST
If I owe you a swap, please message me. I have had two surgeries recently and I am struggling with recovery (so slow— bowel surgery is no joke! Ugh!)
As you can see by my thousands of ratings, my ratings and swaps are very important to me. I will get everyone’s swaps to them, I promise. Please be kind and message me if you are missing something from me. Thank you SO MUCH!!

Recovery from the 2 surgeries is slow and absolutely no joke! Ugh! I’m doing a bit better every day but this has certainly thrown a wrench in my daily routine. Still unable to sit upright for more than a few minutes, makes crafting and swaps a little hard but I am slowly getting back into the groove. Thank you ALL for your compassion, kindness & patience!!

(Oct & Nov 2020) New Jersey is doing mail-in ONLY Ballots (at least for my county which is Somerset) So with that said-- the mail is going to be INSANE. PLEASE be patient. I will send on time. MY mail just may take a day or two extra travel time to make it to YOU OR--- It might take a day or two extra travel time for YOUR mail to make it to ME!

I am an avid Junk Journaler! I love making and using mixed my media journals! I also dabble in ATCs (occasionally)
Antique Ephemera is what I love most!
My journals are mostly done in a distressed, antique and vintage style. Mostly with authentic vintage and antique ephemera and papers.
I love vellum stickers and clear backed stickers
I use lots of old bits of maps and old ledger papers, ephemera, old tickets, checks, pharmacy prescriptions, notes, old letters, antique stamps, old labels, old magazine ads, etc...
I tend to decorate with a lot of botanical images and stickers
Medieval, Regency, Victorian and WWII Eras are all areas of my interest and ones in which I do living history impressions.
I use a lot of lace and trim in my journals
In my junk journals, I tend to lean towards using old book pages.. I also love to use them for decorating envelopes.
I absolutely LOVE rubber stamped images, ESPECIALLY on old book pages! They are works of art in their own right and I use quite a few of them in my crafting
I absolutely LOVE Halloween, Autumn and Christmas themes for my journals! I love all things creepy and vintage for Halloween and traditional and vintage for Christmas! Heck I love all things Halloween and Christmas themed - those two themes are such 'feel good' themes!
I love CHINESE NEW YEAR Red Envelopes! I collect them and have many different ones (Not just Red!) from all over parts of China and USA! I love them!
I just recently stumbled upon Deconstructed Journals and am trying my hand making a few before I start joining swaps for them
I collect antique (1930s - 1950s) linen postcards.
When joining swaps that are just for writing postcards - I really like all sorts of themes -- trains, architecture, touristy, nature, maps, Disney, animals anything really!
No thank you...
I really dislike MINT - please nothing mint. (But I do love mint tea & Thin Mints Girl Scout Cookies!)
Please nothing spicy - but I LOVE spicy chai tea! (hot peppers are a no way!)
Please no Sports stuff (Unless it's Cheerleading!) Please no...teacher/reward stickers or felt stickers ..... Please no Mustache, Poop or any Emoji stuff yuck
I don't have boys so masculine/boy stuff I can't use
Thank you for reading! You made it all the way to the bottom!!
