About Me

It's my birthday month!! β™‘January

11/27/19 Greetings Swappers! A couple of partners have said swaps from me took 4 weeks recently, while others are rated within a week. USPS is so inconsistent here :( I ALWAYS send &rate and will make it right if something goes wrong! Thank you!

Artist, teacher, mom, wife, adventurer! Living rural I love swapping mail as art with other artists and sharing (when appropriate) connections to people all over with my students.

Love art, music, geocaching, hiking, fishing, hockey, various sports, traveling, learning and am passionate about helping young people be the best humans they can be in this tough beautiful world.

Send me beautiful, juxtapositions, oddball, quirky, silly or serious...Handmade/artwork is the best!

I always send and rate! Please, let me know if something is amiss! (I'll do the same :)

*A little kindness and compassion goes a long way! β™‘

Comment: Dear Bre, thanks a lot for your wonderful owl linocut. What kind of printing colors did you use? (Always interested to learn more...) It's a lovely idea to use some WashiTape for making the edge of the card more colorful. Thanks for participating in my swap, I hope you liked it as much as I did :) Edit: You can see my self-carved stamps and linocuts on the postcards I sent via Postcrossing: https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/DE-8755221 (Grinch: lino, holly: stamp, text printed with computer) https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/DE-8633523 (house: lino, text: manual typesetting and printed with platen) https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/DE-8568686 (lino) https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/DE-8585229 (all hand-carved stamps) https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/DE-8538659 (lino) https://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/DE-8131975 (lino)

Happy birthday

I was slightly startled to see you live in Cleveland Minnesota - my sister is in Cleveland Missouri (also a teacher, and an artist). I thought if there was a swapper in her tiny town I'd definitely have to get her hooked up with swapbot!

2019 Newbie Friendly - Profile Bible Verse #3

Isaiah 43:1-3 Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the Lord you God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.
