About Me

I enjoy connecting to people around the globe through the postal system and mail art. I collect postage stamps, bus and train tickets, and other ephemeral bits of everyday life.

I should spend more time outside, so I'm off to swim, or just float and watch the clouds. (gif by L. Boglio)

Favorite Music

Some favorite artists: Miriam Makeba, Keith Jarrett, Chopin, Dave Brubeck Thank You, Bill Evans, Chet Baker, Bach, Baguette Quartette, Rupa and the April Fishes, Beethoven, Tango No. 9, Vince Guaraldi, Andres Segovia, Allman Brothers, Camille, Sanjay Divecha, Lyle Lovett, Decemberists, Carolina Chocolate Drops

Comment: Thank you for the great watermelon PC with Alice in wonderland stamped decoration and fun stamps. Your taco truck sounds delish! Makes me miss my taqueria spot in Washington. My favorite here closed but has sister locations that don't quite fit my cravings. My ma's go to drink aside from water is orange fanta, but I buy her the mini cans.

Comment: Thank you for the pretty card. Yes I like pearl buttons but when you said where you got them I suddenly saw how old I was. I use to sew buttons like that on little clothes. Your friend Joy

OMGosh I love your Pomegranate Post zine with the mix of handcarved stamps and postage stamps. Impressive work and such a lovely thank you gift. The envelope is well done too.

I quite enjoyed hosting the HCSI MAJ swaps.

I will continue to host the Stamp & Pass swaps to continue the collective fun, but in a smaller format.

Thank you for finishing my HCSI MAJ deco and mailing it back to me. You were so generous to to send a print (on handmade paper) of the whole stamp you used for your page and the postage stamps that inspired it. Beautiful work! P.S. I also really like the envelope.
