About Me

UPDATE: 1/29/21. I have had some challenges with people receiving mail from me. My sister and daughter in VA just received my Christmas cards. It took 5 weeks from CT. (mailed 12/14). If you have received a swap from me, please rate, and if not, please let me know so I can resend!!!! I currently have 5 outstanding swaps awaiting rating. Thanks!

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: Wow! What an eye catching swap - the envelope is so fun. I love the rubber stamp images (where did you get the mailboxes & typewriter??) you used and the 40 (!!!) postage stamps! I have never seen so many postage stamps on one envelope before. You packaged the items so nicely - and sent way more than 5 items. Thank you for a great swap.

Comment: Many thanks for joining & sending me such a great, great swap! I enjoyed you sharing about your family and what you’ve all been up to, exciting to have a wedding coming up soon, too & maybe small is memorable and good - then people can visit easier (be a Python & “always look on the bright side of life,” right??) Just emailed you all about the envelope, now you’ve got a brand-new tale to share for future rounds of MZA postal story swaps!

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.

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!

Thank you so much. I really love this stamped image. And the unicorn is great too. I'll be doing a unicorn swap soon, so it will be perfect for that. Thanks again.

Wow... Mom went to the mailbox today and there was mail from the gang! She was all googly eyes over it and tried to hang it on her bulletin board but I told her it had my name on it. Thank you for the most pawesome postcard ever!


P.S. Can you please tell me how you get your mom to fill the food bowl 6 times a day?
