About Me

Profile edited: November 3, 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 people's days!
  • 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 and blessing my Christian friends.

FAVORITE THEMES: Flowers ๐ŸŒธ , song birds, cats ๐Ÿˆ, dragonflies, tea/coffee, cupcakes ๐Ÿง, postal or pen pal related. I love these same themes in a whimsical flair. Oh, & whimsical snails ๐ŸŒ are fun too (no realistic ones!) Now that itโ€™s autumn, colorful fall leaves ๐Ÿ and harvest pumpkins (not Halloween) are a favorite too.

FAVORITE COLORS: All the happy, colorful ones! LOL. I prefer bright colors (not neon) over khaki. Metallics: gold, copper, bronze. Not so much into silver. I also enjoy the rich tones of Autumn.

Wish List

  • UNUSED USA POSTAGE: Vintage (the kind you have to lick or glue to seal) or the current self stick kind.
  • An โ€œole fashionedโ€ LETTER you have written to me, beyond just โ€œhello.โ€ Iโ€™d love to hear about you & your day. Something I can relax and read after a long day at work.
  • YOUR HANDMADE CARD CREATIONS: I especially enjoy fun fold techniques. I seem to be ribbon challenged, so would to see how you incorporate ribbon on cards.
  • MAIL ART on your swap envelope to me.
  • BIBLICAL ENCOURAGEMENT (Share a favorite verse or two).
  • WASHI TAPE
  • EMBOSSING POWDER for heat embossing. Looking for Copper, but would enjoy all colors.
  • ADHESIVES: double sided tape and glue dots.
  • 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; or now that itโ€™s fall, a pumpkin spice latte.
  • STICKERS: In my preferred themes above. Flat ones, not 3D.

Please Don't Send

We all have our own likes and what you like might not necessarily be what I like. Below is a list of things I do not care to receive.

  • Halloween items (carved pumpkins, witches, ghosts, skulls, etc.)
  • Santa themed holiday items.
  • Although I'm a Christian I prefer to not receive crosses, pictures of Christ, or most Christian imagery.
  • NO glittery items, as in the kind of glitter that shakes off a card and gets all over the place. It drives me crazy.
  • Themes: mustache, beards, circus, cutesy (Hello Kitty, Disney, cartoony), Asian, holiday-themed items (unless I've signed up for a specific swap), bugs/insects (dragonflies & butterflies are ok).
  • Scented things: perfume, incense, candles
  • Make-up
  • Tourist items (example: postcards, magnets & keychains)
  • Tea: I like tea (see above kinds under my wishlist), but NOT these kinds: licorice/anise, hibiscus, lemon, orange spice, or any black tea. I don't like tea that brews up red in color (usually from hibiscus being a top ingredient). No Stash brand tea.
  • Chipboard scrapbook embellishments, nor 3-D stickers.

Promise

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.
