About Me

You can find hosting, rak-ing and swapping at Cheap Postage Swaps, Tags and Fun

I host offsite at Instagram and on Facebook as well as at atcsforall.com

I enjoy crochet, origami, zines, atcs, collage, Sharpies and pretty much anything to do with paper. I miss painting pottery since I sold my paint-your-own-pottery studio.

Styles I like: modern farmhouse, beach/tropical; clean/IKEA, shabby chic, hand drawn, and of course, Hello Kitty.

Styles I like less: victorian/vintage, lace, nudes, gothic/dark or religious, cutesy, kitschy country.

LIKES: Fav colors include sea blue/sea glass, navy, turquoise, red, rosy pink, burgundy, purple! Fav scents are citrus, linen, simple and clean.

  • mini zines!
  • good quality stickers (botanical, origami, seasonal)
  • Hello Kitty flat items
  • washi tape
  • yuzen paper or origami paper
  • asian or botanical ephemera for collage
  • antique book pages or music sheets for collage
  • die cuts, fussy cutouts for collage
  • tea towels, handmade lovely
  • anything from or inspired by my etsy favorites
  • anything wine, beach/seashell (but not mermaid)
  • stud earrings - silver or stainless
  • Fav Postcards - travel, greetings from, beach/tropical, snarky, wild birds/songbirds, asian, Hello Kitty, Greece, fine art repros, Key West, ocean.
  • Collecting "Greetings From" pcs with the big bubble letters - trying to get all 50 states. I have AR, CA, CO, FL, KS, KY, ME, MI, MN, NV, TN, TX, OR, UT) but I would love any others!

  • Fav food & drink: dark chocolates, chocolate with fruits or nuts, anything almond, andes mints, hard candies in travel tins; decaf black teas like decaf orange spice teas, decaf earl or lady grey tea, tea biscuits or stroopwafel cookies!!

No thanks! Things I don't need or care to receive:

  • planner, kiddie, teacher/reward stickers
  • fabric/lace/ribbon (have too much already!!)
  • plain papers or paper scraps
  • incense or anything with a strong odor
  • herbal or green teas
  • anything licensed unless it's kawaii:)
  • anything religious
  • fabric - I can't sew nor have to time to learn
  • Please NO dollar store cosmetics, candles, candy/food, or personal care products - thanx!

ALLERGIES: Smoke, cat hair.

I am an early sender and a prompt rater. Please contact me if you have not received an item or a rating.

Also, I take most items to the PO to be weighed but sometimes what I think are simple flat envies go over an ounce and I don't realize it. If you get anything from me that comes postage due, please let me know and I'll send it to you!

Crafty Things I Make and Send

Handcrafted Things I tend to send: zines, crochet items, pocket letters, ephemera, atcs, anything origami, addy labels + swap cards, handmade notecards,
