About Me

Really having a great time getting crafty and sending mail all over the place!

I love sending mail of all sorts and I noodle around with scrap quilting.

No allergies, non-smoking home...um...I read a lot of books and like dinosaurs, cats, flowers, space, and a ton of other stuff.

please message me if a swap you are waiting for has not arrived! the postal service is doing their best, but I'm still seeing quite a few delays and undelivered mail. I am happy to send out new stuff/replacements ASAP, as long as you let me know!

Favorite Books

I'm a huge fan of Seanan McGuire/Mira Grant's writing in urban fantasy and sci-fi horror. I'm an avid reader of the Blogess and have been really enjoying the selections from her internet book club, particularly "A Southern Book Club's Guide to Killing Vampires" and "Mexican Gothic."

Megan Whalen Turner's "Thief" series is also a personal favorite.

Favorite Television

Most of my screen watch time goes to online streaming, particularly Critical Role, Dimension 20, some cooking vlogs (Pick Up Limes, Downshiftology), and Just Get It Done Quilts.

Favorite Crafts

Junk Journals, Tag Making, Handmade Postcards, Scrap Quilting, ATCs, Minizines

I'm much more of a collaging type - I don't have great drawing/painting skills, but I love combining colors, textures, etc. to create new works.

Stuff I Like

I'm a pretty all-around stuff lover but some favorites are:

  • Foreign language emphemera (non-English)

  • Pretty/Unique papers (think handmade, mixed materials, etc)

  • Interesting doilies and punches

  • space, dinosaur, botanical, or dragon themed paper materials, weird animals, cute things, dark/goth-themed items

  • anything related to mythology (from anywhere - Greek, Egyptian, Norse, Tasmania, Polynesia, etc.)

  • fan of all colors and seasons

  • I'm Jewish. Not offended by Christmas, Easter, etc. stuff but not my first choice!

  • I could really use more: tea/coffee-dyed papers, handmade papers, smallish die-cuts, fussy cuts

  • I always love getting anything you made yourself (ATCs, postcards, tiny art, minizines, etc).

Things I Don't Need

Not a big deal if any of these come in, but I'll most likely pass them off to others who will enjoy them more!

  • parent-themed stuff (ie. mommy & me, daddy's little boy, etc)
  • loose glitter (I've got plenty on hand) -sequins

Comment: A lovely butterfly card - thank you! That lace is a great highlight. I heard about the bridge in the news - how awful! Hopefully they can rebuild it fast.

The junque jam challenge finish was just gorgeous .. you really created a lovely card.. and yes you are right .. about grumpy birds .. I looked at my “birds” collection and yes they are!

9O96O on May 28, 2023:

I got the 2 pass & paste postcards. It was kind of you to mail them to me so I can get them moving. It's very much appreciated.

9O96O on May 1, 2023:

Just a quick note to let you know I dropped the re-send for HMPC: Pass & Paste Postcard #342143 (Global) in the mail today. It's been an additional 2 weeks and prairiekittin's postcard still hasn't arrived so I think it's time of a resend. I made a new pass & paste postcard. I hope you like it.
