About Me

Update. 6/24/21.
The USPS seems to be catching up, although, mail is certainly taking longer to get to it's destination than pre-Covid. Happy Swapping!!! Cheers to several day turnarounds in the near future!

I love paper. Books, making books, altering books, cards, stamping, all kinds of mail art, journaling, collage, stamps, etc. I also make beaded jewelry.

I enjoy swapping with people from around the world. I understand that the mail systems can have flaws and things may not arrive to their destination. I pledge to reach out more than once before rating a 1 or a 3. I would really appreciate the same courtesy. I understand the disappointment of spending time on a swap and knowing someone seemingly did nothing.

I often include extras that are profile based, not for the hearts (I do appreciate them though!) but because I have so much stuff to share and would like to bring a smile to people's faces. That said, please rate your swap. (I always will) It helps me continue to improve what I send out, and lets me know you received my envelope.

Comment: Thank you for the lovely swap. I thought the comment about how far it travelled was quite a nice touch. Thank you for the butterflies and lovely photo's. We managed to grow a blue morning glory this year. I pressed one of the flowers. came out quite nice. Maybe we will try more next year, depends on how successful my battle with the slugs are. And wow, you have 2 cats of 20. We have 1 too. She is all black. And wow, raising the monarchs, your house sounds like wonderland. So interesting. Take care!

Comment: So I Married an Axe Murderer: Charlie Mackenzie : Hey, Mom, I find it interesting that you refer to the Weekly World News as "the paper." The paper contains facts. May Mackenzie : This paper contains facts. And this paper has the eighth highest circulation in the whole wide world. Right? Plenty of facts. "Pregnant man gives birth." That's a fact. The pages from "the paper" have me laughing. My granny loved WWN. "They couldn't print it if it wasn't true!" Thank you for the really fun envelope of mermaid goodies.
Response: I love that paper! and I'm glad you like the mermaids! I was trying to find the story where the man found a mermaid in a can of sardines article in my "vault". . . But it eluded me!

Comment: Gorgeous swap! Thank you so, so much!
Comment: First of all, WOW! What an amazing package full of wonderful goodies. I LOVE the variety of notecards. I adore the little ones you made! And I loved how they were presented in the cute pouch. Also, WOW on the monarchs. This year I have learned about the plight of the monarch and with each swap I include a package of milkweed seeds and instructions. You are definitely my kindred spirit. I'll message you my email. THANKS
Comment: Thank you very much for the great note and your fun selection of stamps — and presentation via delivery in your handmade kitty calendar envelope made this swap extra-special, too! (Check your email soon!)

Thank you for the surprise postcard. I appreciate you sending to me even if it was unintentionally addressed. :) The postal system did rough it up a bit but it adds character and shows it has had a journey. Take care.

Bhindblueeyes on May 6, 2021:

I am absolutely blown away by the surprise mail that made its way to me. I cannot believe you made this card! It's fantastic, and I am beyond impressed and thankful you chose me to send it to! What a pick me up this was after all that has gone on! The tea is one of my favorites, and I am pumped to add your kitty to my album!! Also, I appreciate the fun paper clips and the shark pendant is phenomenal!! I'm assuming you made the mini card as well? You are so talented! Thank you ever so kindly, again, for sending me such cheer!
