About Me

Greetings! I'm Norma Sue. I grew up in Southern California north of Los Angeles. My first pen pal as a child was my Great Grandmother who lived in Alberta, Canada. I resumed this childhood hobby as an adult after more than a decade of infertility and two miscarriages compelled me to search for a simple solution to that emotional trauma. I needed something to look forward to. A surprise in the mailbox seemed like the perfect pick-me-up.

Some of my professions, passions and hobbies are: writing novels, fine art and illustration, both traditional and digital media, reading, planner Journaling, stickers, amateur gardening, ancient languages, singing, music, piano, and arts and crafts. Greek mythology is my favorite and influences my writing and art. I also enjoy studying and learning.

Some of my favorite postcard subjects: mythology, especially Greek mythology folklore fairytales fantasy classics and antiquity Greece butterflies peacocks castles pomegranates animals

We adopted a baby boy in 2020. He is the joy that takes up most of my time and energy, and reminds me every day to be happy and that every song is a good dancing song! Creativity plays a big role in my life. My toddler loves to help me in the studio. Like all children he is very creatively prolific. As an illustrator, I am thrilled with the prospect of designing postcards featuring my original artwork. I love collecting original artwork as well. You can see my work at www.normasueoneil.com. I am always happy to swap with someone who appreciates my work.

Comment: Hi Norma! Yes, unfortunately my wife and I didn't end up making it to the snail mail meetup. We were camping the following weekend and ended up spending most of the meetup weekend prepping the trailer for travel (it was nice to take a 4-day weekend to get out of the heat). Yes, Shirley does do a great job organizing. Hopefully we can make the next one and see each other. Thank you so much for participating in the chunk-o swap, it's nice when my wife or I get to swap with you! Best, Rick

Comment: I love to play with fabric. lately I have been sewing kid bags, doll dresses out of scraps(donate them) and making me some more clothes. I am allergic to man made fibers so that leaves out store clothes. I have to take apart the seams and resew with all cotton thread. I have to get a wedding gift quilt done for one niece and a baby quilt for another one. Wedding quilt next year for another one. Just have 1 niece left in HS. She will get an afghan.

Comment: Great graphic. I agree with the quotation. The little snail is a nice touch. My neighbor is a snail lover with quite a collection. Thanks.

Comment: Norma Sue! How are you? (It's always a pleasure to swap with you!) Love Mario Kart packaging on the Capri Sun! I have many family memories of my wife and I playing Kart with our son. Also love the mail snail...did you draw that freehand or is it a stamp? Hopefully my wife and I will get to see you at the mail meetup this weekend. Best, Rick
