About Me

I always send swaps and rate as well! If you don't receive a rating, I didn't receive the swap as of yet or it was lost in the mail. I will contact the swap partner if I don't receive something in a months time, before I rate a bad rating. Life happens and this is to be a fun experience, not a stressful hobby.

f you don't receive a swap let me know before giving me a bad rating. I don't flake, so message me first!

I am a wife and mother to 3 children. I love living in a rural area. I enjoy reading, pen paling, collecting postcards, watching movies, cooking, and life in general.

I enjoy reading cozy mysteries, other mysteries, Christian fiction, cookbooks, self care books, flower/garden, travel and biographies.

I like to travel to see other small towns, lighthouses, covered bridges, the scenic area there. I also have enjoyed camping or staying at a cabin to explore the mountains.

I like collecting postcards from other places that show the person's town, historical place, flowers native to that area, scenic postcards, and local foods, lighthouses, snow capped mountains, covered bridges, famous buildings, and countryside, I like Lantern Press and Zazzle post cards as well!

Favorite colors that I like: Bright Pink or Fushia, Lime Green, Sunshine Yellow, Purple, Navy, and Red,

Favorite room colors, I like cream, light brown, so I can accent it with a brighter color. Accent colors purple, reds, greens, blues, and yellows.

Favorite Crafts

I liked to do Mail art, mainly with washi tape, stickers, stamps, cut outs. I am exploring at getting more creative here.

I do a little with card making, sometimes handmade postcard as well.

I guess you would say, I am into paper crafting. I enjoy others handmade items, such as sewn, crochet, knitting, and cross stitch.

My favorite past time is really getting postcards ready for my Elderly project. I take on about 6 or 7 people at a time who have a medical condition or up in years to send the ABC's in postcards. I started this in 2020 with a widow who were friends with my parents. She was lockdown in her retirement home. I would talk to her by phone but decided sending the next 26 weeks the ABC's in postcards. I loved doing it so much I decided to do up to 7 people at a time. I pick them out of my stash than fancy them up with washi or stickers. I have them all in a baggie with the address to mail out every Monday. So anytime you have extra postcards or postcard stamps I will use them toward this project. I actually have a friend who liked the idea so much, she is also going to do this. You can send only so many cards saying Thinking of you! I here the receiver tries to guess what the next post card will be for the letter.

Comment: Hi Jo, thank you for all the goodies! And also for the pen pal letter. Don’t mind at all that you included them in one package. The bookmark is heartwarming and I need to go see more lighthouses. Locally we have amazing lighthouses as we are near San Francisco which is famous for fog. In the night you can hear the fog horns still warning sailors and ships of the shoreline even though most people use gps and other high tech equipment. I love that lonely sound of the foghorn. Today it is foggy though inland it has been up over 100F this week here it’s about 63F.

Wow I got so much mail from you today! Thanks a lot for your note and the awesome stickers from Lake Placid and Lake Saranac for WW June! My FIL saw a moose and her baby in Colorado last month! I’m so jealous, ha ha! I saw a moose in Idaho once while I was driving - it stepped right into the road and it was huge!!! They’re so beautiful. Hope you have a great week and holiday weekend!
