About Me

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

I love sending mail of all sorts and this past year I've really gotten into 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

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:

  • Stickers, all kinds, the weirder the better

  • 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

  • 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; interesting/colored brads; bulb pins,

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!

  • Fine art supplies (paints, chalks, pastels, etc)
  • parent-themed stuff (ie. mommy & me, daddy's little boy, etc)
  • loose glitter (I've got plenty on hand)

What a wonderful swap you sent to me for FTLOC#1 ~ One color pocket letter: Pink!! I am blown away by the beauty and effort you put into this! I have only made one myself (for this swap) and you have inspired me to do better next time! Thank you for sharing your talent with me!!

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. 🥧
