About Me

I am a born again Christian. My hope and trust is in Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Random tidbits:

  • Rock/mineral hunting on beaches and "in the middle of nowhere.”
  • Getting together with friends for fellowship and card games.
  • Organizing my craft room.
  • Creating cheerful cards to brighten people’s days.
  • "Treasure hunting" at thrift stores, garage sales, and estate sales, and finding cool paper crafting or letter writing items.
  • 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, art stamps, 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.” FAVORITE THEMES: Flowers 🌸 , song birds, cats 🐈, dragonflies, snails 🐌 (whimsical only), tea/coffee, happy mail, 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!
  • STAMPIN’ UP!: small “flattish” self stick embellishments; a few ribbon samples; stamped sentiments (black ink on white card stock)
  • FLAT STICKERS: In my preferred themes above; I especially love colorful flowers. Please do not send dimensional stickers.
  • ENVELOPES: Handmade from pretty papers, sized for A2 cards.
  • STARBUCKS gift card for that “once in awhile” sweet treat.
  • 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.


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: Starting off the golden envelope was special Love it! The notecard is so sweet. Reminds me of some little papers I have perhaps from the same place. Thanks for the notecard and the inserts. Spring sure is taking its' time getting here. It is quite breezy today and when I woke up it was 38 feels like 28 if you can imagine. I am still wearing my Winter coat with the fur around the hood I am always praying unceasing for so many people!

Comment: I love how you made this card and then embossed it. I have one embossing plate and I am going to make some of these cards ahead of time and emboss them. Yes I had Easter with my family at my son's place. it was nice to meet my son's girlfriends family too. The bible is filled with great instruction. That is nice to know that you have my card up on your board. I have this one you made up here in my desk. So pretty!.

LadyJo rated for PRAISE the Lord on Feb 25, 2022
Comment: Loved the beautiful note card of Tulips you sent with great verses on Praising the Lord. I think of the Missionaries in Haiti that were kidnapped and now escaped. I guess you heard of that. Anyway they would have a worship service each night singing Praises to the Lord. Singing sure is uplifting! Love the little bookmark that will be kept in my Bible!
Response: You are so welcome! No, I hadn’t heard the goods news about the missionaries. Thanks for sharing that. Life (work) has been so busy lately.

Thank you so much for the delightful surprise card and scripture verses I found in my PO Box today! Such a great card, and the timing just perfect.... I'm dealing with a few health issues and your card just boosted my spirits! Thanks again.

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

LadyJo on Jul 29, 2021:

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!
