About Me

Updated profile on December 4th, 2022

**I am Selling a bunch of my craft stuff that I don't use or just isn't my style anymore on my MERCARI shop !

I will be listing LOTS of things, including planner stickers, planner stuff, clear stamps, stationery, embellishments, scrapbooking and journaling stuff -- take a look - might see something you need, want or have to have!

A lil of this and that...


-- FOR JJJ Let's Make a Junk Journal --

I Love antique/shabby/vintage and I use this theme for everything I do in my journals.

I also love florals/maps/botanical/vintage circus and theme park/travel/steampunk and Disney

My journals are all different sizes so anything in any size works just fine for me!

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I am an avid Junk Journaler! I love making and using mixed my media journals! I also dabble in ATCs (occasionally)

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ True Antique Ephemera is what I love most! Most of my ephemera collection spans from mid 1800s to the 1950s

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I collect Starbucks giftcards. I love the unique ones from different states and cities, countries and holiday ones (all of them!)

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I collect old autograph books from the Victorian era up through the 1920s. The ones that kids brought to school and their friends wrote little poetic lines of affection in.

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I have an extensive Autograph Collection of Celebrities from the 1920s through the 1940s. My Prized autograph is Babe Ruth.

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ My journals are mostly done in a distressed, antique and vintage style. Mostly with authentic vintage and antique ephemera and papers. I do, however, love Tim Holtz style when the swap does not call for authentic vintage!

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっI love vellum stickers and clear backed stickers

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I use lots of antique old maps and old ledger papers, antique ephemera, vintage tickets, checks, pharmacy prescriptions, notes, old letters, antique stamps, old labels, old magazine ads, etc...

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I tend to decorate my envelopes with botanical images and vellum stickers, old book pages, washi and rubber stamps

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Medieval, Regency, Victorian and WWII Eras are all areas of my interest and ones in which I do living history impressions.

Iʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I use a lot of lace and trim in my journals

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ In my junk journals , I tend to lean towards using old book pages .. I also love to use them for decorating envelopes.

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I love rubber stamped images on old book pages! They are works of art in their own right and I use quite a few of them in my crafting

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ 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!

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ 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!


ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I collect antique (1930s - 1950s) linen postcards. (Blank and written on.. both are charming)

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ 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!

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I love..

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Antique Shops and antiquing all year round!

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Yard Sales/Tag Sales/Garage Sales etc..

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Estate Sales are my favorite places to find beautiful RARE books for pennies!!

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Auctions

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Traveling - Especially Road Trips!

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Camping

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ My dream is to one day have a big RV with which to travel around the USA & Canada

My Favorite Fandoms
