About Me

I'm 60 years old, married for 30 years and still madly in love with my honey. We have two grown daughters, 3 grandsons, and 1 dog (Benny).

We live in a Minneapolis/St Paul suburb and love it here! Mounds View is a suburb of St Paul so either city works for my mail.

I always rate and I always send. If you don't receive something from me, please let me know and I can resend. I will do the same as this is a courtesy we all prefer.

I'm originally from North Dakota. I've lived in Minnesota for over 30 years. We still have friends and relatives in ND and visit them when we can.

I'm fascinated with junk and art journals. Love to see them and have just started making my own. I'm also making Zines and ATCs and love to see what others make. I also love Label Bags. If you swap LBs and get my name for any swap, please feel free to include LBs.

My hobbies:

Reading, books, visiting bookstores, reading about books, libraries, museums. I love most things books and mail related (authors, stamps, bookstores, libraries, etc). I also enjoy doing genealogy, scrapbooking, rubber stamping and making ATCs, cards, booklets, junk journals.

I love to travel and collect postcards wherever I go. I usually will do a postcard travel journal after I return home.

I love mail, writing letters, fun/unique stamps, Steampunk, mail art, whales, Moomins, pens, typewriters, Cows, and Polar Bears.

Looking for Used Postage Bag swaps.

Favorite Books

So many but I will list some that come to mind:

Project Hail Mary, Station Eleven, All the Light We Cannot See, Night Circus, Less: A Novel, Green Mile, Hobbit, The Stand

Favorite Crafts

Junk Journals - Love making these junk journals for friends, swaps, and myself. Currently working on a Space Junk Journal for me. Would love note paper, stickers, Washi, stamped images, postcards, used stamps or something else if it has to do with any of the following (I may have missed some, but you get the idea):

Space, Moon, Milky Way, Astronaut, NASA, Astronomy, Hubble, Mars, Moon Landings, Cows, Polar Bears

Favorite Movies

How to Frame a Figg, The Ghost and Mr. Chicken, LOTR, Star Trek, Finding Nemo, My Neighbor Totoro, Howl's Moving Castle, Final Countdown, Margaret Rutherford Miss Marple movies


I prefer to receive postcards naked and stamped,especially with fun stamps (large, colorful, different, multiple, etc)

Zeppelins, Underwater, Owls, Snoopy/Peanuts Whales, Antarctica, Siberia, Steampunk, Explorers, Astronomy/Hubble/Space, Books, Bookstores and Libraries, Typewriters (and images of typewriters), fog, rain, extreme weather, storms, Letters/Stamps/Mail/Mailbox

Comment: Hi Jafferty, this is an awesomely orange filled envelope! Thank You! On a grey grim day like today opening it and seeing that great color on the marbled paper was a lovely treat. There are so many intriguing items in your envelope, I am going to save really looking through it all till I have a quiet chunk of time and a fresh cup of tea so I can really appreciate it all. Thank You very much for this day brightening envelope! I will also try note keeping for good old War and Peace. I will also check out Lessons in Chemistry. Happiness and Peace to you โ˜€๏ธ

Comment: Thanks for the postcards to pass along, and the extra postcard for me!

Comment: Jacquelin Ann! Your wonderful card and goodies arrived today; thank you so much for sending it when you did. It made its way to me on my birthday <3 I don't get many cards (only 1 from my family, none from anyone else) so receiving one in the mail was extra special. InCoWriMo sounds very interesting; I'm gonna give it a lookie-loo and most likely sign up :) Thank you again for taking part and being an AMAZING partner xx

Thank you for being the ONLY person in the Intโ€™l Stamp Collectors group who actually returned my postage stamp bags. I made over a dozen bags in the time I was part of the group but have only received two back and theyโ€™re both from you! I ๐Ÿ’™ your honesty! A million thanks!!! (P.S. Awesome idea to coordinate your own swaps in USA only. I image all my other bags are lost overseas. sad).
