About Me

Hi! I am 49, mother of two and married. I am new to swapping fb's but not new to Pen Pals. I love trading stickers (remember sticker stores?), trading Art of any kind and snail mail. I love paper, stationery and envelopes. I am also a people person and miss connecting with others in the real world.

I stayed home to raise my children, now they are 16 and 18. I have also been a photographer and an artist for the last 20 years. I tried digital photography and yes it's a cool medium but I love film. I collect old photos which I find in Antique Shops.

I am willing to write and answer or swap with anyone. I would love to trade letters, post cards, Stickers, Decos and FB's.

I am a paper, fiber and art enthusiast. I can't go a day without creating something. Even if it is just a small doodle on the phone pad! Hope to hear from you!

I love: Paper, Collage, Stickers, Post Cards, Concert Flyers, 1970s, Stamps, Stationery, anything Art

Music I like: Anything, I have an open mind

I can: Cook, Clean like a Demon, Sew (hand and machine), take a photo and develop a b&w negative, crochet, knit, collage, change a baby's diaper-give it a bottle-and put that baby to sleep.

Favorite Crafts

Likes: Paper, photos (old and new!), pen pals, Japanese art papers, Origami paper---I am paper obsessed.

Stickers, Washi Tape, anything that sticks on paper!

Postal Stamps, Notecards, Envelopes (both blank and used envelopes), Post Cards

Purples, Blues, Greens, Ocean themes, Forest themes, Clouds, Rainbows, Kawaii, Sanrio

Vintage themed anything, Roses, vintage floral, Angels


I pretty much love almost anything. If it's related to Swapping, Art or Crafts, I love it!

I also love anything Alice in Wonderland.
