About Me

Profile edited: September 2021.

I am Beth from Oregon, USA. I'm married with no children. Sadly, we had to say goodbye earlier this year to our little furry feline who brought us much joy and a little bit of fur. =^..^=

I am not religious but rather I am a born-again Christian, a believer and follower of Jesus Christ. It’s not about the rules and regulations of the Old Testament, rather it is a relationship with the Lord, who died on the cross for my sins - past, present, and future (and yours too). His free gift to us when we believe and put our trust in Him is grace, mercy, and hope in a future filled with nothing His love and our for love for one another. Oh what a wonderful place that will be!!

Random things I enjoy:

  • Rock/mineral hunting on beaches and "in the middle of nowhere.”
  • Getting together with friends for fellowship and card games.
  • Doing jigsaw puzzles.
  • 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!)

Favorite Crafts

I LOVE playing with pretty papers, stamps, pens, markers, washi tape, 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.” FAVORITE THEMES: Flowers 🌸 , song birds, cats 🐈, dragonflies, snails 🐌 (whimsical only), tea/coffee, postal, friendship, or pen pal related 🖊.

FAVORITE COLORS: All the happy, bright 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.
  • ADDRESS LABELS: With my address on them. Homemade works!
  • FLAT STICKERS: In my preferred themes above; I especially love colorful flowers. Please do not send dimensional stickers.
  • DIE CUT FRAMES that I can stamp a sentiment in. Love stitched, fancy, scalloped, etc. White card stock preferred.
  • STARBUCKS gift card, for a coffee or other treat every once in awhile.
  • TEA: green tea varieties (jasmine, toasted rice, and other "earthy" ones); I enjoy tropical additives (figs, pineapple, etc.). I like oolong tea. For herbal, lavender is nice. (Please see my tea dislikes below.)

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
  • Tea in these flavors: plain mint, plain lemon, tea that brews up red in color (it’s usually heavy on hibiscus and it’s too tart for me), licorice. I don’t care for rooibus tea, nor black tea.

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.

Comment: Thank you for the pretty card and nice note. I can't imagine pushing uphill for 10 miles on a bicycle but it does sound like good exercise. I only occasionally smell a little smoke. I am so relieved it isn't like last summer.
Response: You are very welcome! 🍁

Comment: Thank you for my lovely, lovely pink flower card!!! I flew in late last night from your 'neck of the woods' (Portland) visiting friends in Salem and opened my mail at 11 p.m. This is so cute - has my favorite elements ... pink and dots! I love the way you did the sentiment as well. I will be making mine tonight and hope it turns out! Thanks again!!!!
Response: You are very welcome! I’m so happy that you enjoyed my pink creation. Thanks for the ❤️. Interesting that you were up in my neck of the woods. 😎

Beth, thanks so much for your very thoughtful gift. The asian stamp is absolutely beautiful, and I will certainly enjoy using it. Appreciate your thinking of me! Patty B

Beth, thanks so much for the delightful and beautiful card! I loved the story about the ribbons, and must admit I need to think about estate sales as a potential source for crafting supplies! I laughed when I read it was "dog grooming ribbon", BUT it certainly makes a great card!! Thanks again, Big Hugs, Patty B

Thank you for the wonderful RAK! I can't say enough, but my daughter is excited to use some of the items as well. I was in need of Winter/Christmas washi so that is awesome. The red envelopes too were needed. We plan to share some of these things with our friends as well! It was like Christmas!
