About Me

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

I love sending mail of all sorts 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, 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: decorative napkins and tissue papers for decoupage; tea/coffee-dyed papers, handmade papers

  • I always love getting fussy cuts, 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

Oh, just realized what your note meant! Haha no worries! <3

Thank you for returning my finished ATC Bag to me! It looks like you received it twice, you're the first and last sender which shouldn't have happened, but my favorite ATCs are from you, so I don't mind. :P

Thank you so much for the extra handmade envies too!! I LOVE the sparkly orange paisley one! You must've took note of my profile XD Love the pass-around PC as a notecard too, good idea!

Thanks for the fun Pi(e) Day zine full of interesting facts! I also like your pencil crayon work for the backgrounds.

Did you know that Stephen Hawking died on Pi Day? Thanks for the Samosa Pie suggestion. I have found some recipes and will give it a try. 🥧
