About Me

Profile edited: December 23, 2019.

I am Beth from Oregon, USA. I'm married with no children, but we do have a small cat who brings us great joy & a little fur or is that great fur & a little joy?! =^..^=

I am a born-again Christian, a follower of Jesus Christ.

Random things I enjoy:

  • Rock/mineral hunting on beaches and "in the middle of nowhere" with my husband.
  • Getting together with friends for fellowship and card games.
  • Organizing my craft room.
  • Keeping the lost art of letter writing alive by writing to my pen pals all over the world.
  • "Treasure hunting" at thrift stores, garage sales, and estate sales, and finding cool paper crafting or letter writing items.
  • Receiving colorful snail mail in decorated envelopes (white ones are so boring!)
  • Sending colorful snail mail to brighten up someone’s day!
  • Song birds singing their sweet songs.
  • Meeting other Christians who enjoy my love of paper arts and/or writing letters.
  • Cats (meow!)
  • Watching YouTube paper crafting videos.

Favorite Crafts

I LOVE playing with pretty papers, washi tapes, stamps, pens, markers, etc. I use them to make cards and envelopes for swapping, writing to my pen pals, and for encouraging/brightening up the lives of others with “a handmade card sent to them via snail mail.” [I’m doing my best to keep this lost art alive!💌😀]

FAVORITE THEMES: Flowers 🌸 , song birds, cats 🐈, dragonflies, snails 🐌 (whimsical only), tea/coffee, hearts 💜, postal, or pen pal related 💌🖊.

FAVORITE COLORS: All the happy, colorful ones! As for metallics, I prefer gold or copper over silver.

Wish List

  • UNUSED USA POSTAGE: Vintage (the kind you have to lick or glue to seal) or the current self stick kind.
  • RETURN ADDRESS LABELS with my address in them. They can be plain or with a design.
  • ENVELOPES (Mailable sizes) Handmade from pretty papers or plain ones for me to decorate
  • LETTER SETS (Lined): in my favorite themes (see above)
  • STICKERS: In my preferred themes above; would especially love colorful flowers. I prefer flat stickers, not 3D ones.
  • WASHI TAPE: Flowers, polka dots, or stripes (all colors), or see my preferred themes above.
  • TEA: green tea varieties (jasmine, toasted rice, and other "earthy" ones); I enjoy tropical additives (figs, pineapple, etc.). (See tea dislikes below.).
  • STARBUCKS: A gift card so I can enjoy a caramel macchiato with a petite vanilla bean scone.

Don’t Care to Receive

We all have our own likes and what you like might not necessarily be what I like. Below is a list of themes or items that just aren’t my thing.

  • Halloween, the Santa side of Christmas
  • Loose glitter, or cards with glitter that shakes off a card and gets all over the place.
  • Mustaches, circus, Hello Kitty, Disney, cartoony, Asian, creepy/crawly bugs or insects, snakes
  • Scented items: Perfume, lotions, incense, candles, make-up
  • Postcards
  • Tourist items (e.g. blank postcards, magnets & keychains)
  • Chipboard embellishments


I always send out my swaps and usually it's very soon after partners are assigned. If for some reason you do not receive a swap from me, please send me a PM or an e-mail before rating me poorly and I will do the same for you. If the swap got lost, I will resend it.

I will rate upon receiving your swap or shortly thereafter. I would appreciate you doing the same for me.
