About Me

Is it just me or is mail terribly slow & unreliable these days?

I always rate asap after receiving a swap. If I haven't rated, I haven't received.

I'm a mother & wife. The hubs and I have been together for over 29 years. Married for 21 years. We have an 18 year old son, graduated HS early and a very energetic, crazy Labraheeler pup named Kole.

My preferred style to receive is mixed media, happy colors. My style tends to be somewhat eclectic, especially with my creative journals. I love odd and quirky! I love little trinkets and things from the 80's & 90's.

I love creative Journaling, Mail Art, Collage Fodder, Art Journaling, House shaped art & Art with Human Faces. Ephemera, rub-ons & quotes. Mixed Media. Drawing. I love pom pom trims!

I have a huge rubber stamp collection and a Big Shot Machine for diecutting.

Comment: Wow, wow! You've outdone yourself with this swap. The book page pocket is excellent - love the fancy side stitching and the subtle washi on the edge of each pocket.
