About Me


My focus word for 2021 is MANIFEST


If I owe you a swap, please message me. I have had two surgeries recently and I am struggling with recovery (so slow— bowel surgery is no joke! Ugh!)

As you can see by my thousands of ratings, my ratings and swaps are very important to me. I will get everyone’s swaps to them, I promise. Please be kind and message me if you are missing something from me. Thank you SO MUCH!!

thank you!!!

Recovery from the 2 surgeries is slow and absolutely no joke! Ugh! I’m doing a but better every day but this has certainly thrown a wrench in my daily routine. Still unable to sit upright for more than a few minutes, makes crafting and swaps a little hard but I am slowly getting back into the groove. Thank you ALL for your compassion, kindness & patience!!

November, 11 2020 Still In hospital, difficult, ovarian cancer surgery. Slow recovery.. complications. Here at least until nov 20

(Oct & Nov 2020) New Jersey is doing mail-in ONLY Ballots (at least for my county which is Somerset) So with that said-- the mail is going to be INSANE. PLEASE be patient. I will send on time. MY mail just may take a day or two extra travel time to make it to YOU OR--- It might take a day or two extra travel time for YOUR mail to make it to ME!

Ovarian Cancer Survivor! Kicking it's ass for the 4th time ! Surgery scheduled for 5th Nov, 2020! Will be home a few days later and back to my bouncy self!! If I have a swap due to assign partners for - rest assured, they will be assigned! If I have a swap due OUT - Rest assured again, My daughter will log in and hit the "ASSIGN PARTNERS" button and mail my swaps! WORRY NOT!

(Yes @MKayla is my daughter and yes she is 18)

Mail just came! Always a highlight of the day but today... was a little different LOL! I received a swap from NOVEMBER 2018 -- TWENTY EIGHTEEN! LOL I am Laughing so hard!! It's postmarked 15th NOVEMBER, 2018!! LOL Cracks me up! Just goes to show you that there IS hope for lost swaps out there!! LOL

A lil of this and that...


I am an avid Junk Journaler! I love making and using mixed my media journals! I also dabble in ATCs (occasionally)

Antique Ephemera is what I love most!

My journals are mostly done in a distressed, antique and vintage look

I love vellum stickers and clear backed stickers

I use lots of old bits of maps and old ledger papers, ephemera, old tickets, checks, pharmacy prescriptions, notes, old letters, antique stamps, old labels, old magazine ads, etc...

I tend to decorate with a lot of botanical images and stickers

Medieval, Regency, Victorian and WWII Eras are all areas of my interest and ones in which I do living history impressions.

I use a lot of lace and trim in my journals

In my junk journals, I tend to lean towards using old book pages.. I also love to use them for decorating envelopes.

I absolutely LOVE rubber stamped images, ESPECIALLY on old book pages! They are works of art in their own right and I use quite a few of them in my crafting

I absolutely LOVE Halloween, Autumn and Christmas themes for my journals! I love all things creepy and vintage for Halloween and traditional and vintage for Christmas! Heck I love all things Halloween and Christmas themed - those two themes are such 'feel good' themes!

I love CHINESE NEW YEAR Red Envelopes! I collect them and have many different ones (Not just Red!) from all over parts of China and USA! I love them!

I just recently stumbled upon Deconstructed Journals and am trying my hand making a few before I start joining swaps for them

**************POSTCARD SWAPS*****************

I collect antique (1930s - 1950s) linen postcards.

When joining swaps that are just for writing postcards - I really like all sorts of themes -- trains, architecture, touristy, nature, maps, Disney, animals anything really!

Things I can't use

No thank you...

I really dislike MINT - please nothing mint. (But I do love mint tea & Thin Mints Girl Scout Cookies!)

Please nothing spicy - but I LOVE spicy chai tea! (hot peppers are a no way!)

Please no Sports stuff (Unless it's Cheerleading!) Please no...teacher/reward stickers or felt stickers ..... Please no Mustache, Poop or any Emoji stuff yuck

I don't have boys so masculine/boy stuff I can't use


thank you!

Thank you for reading! You made it all the way to the bottom!!

Comment: This card gets a heart for being super-ugly!!! I agree with you. I have no idea how some artists get so famous or popular. I think Picasso's work is awful!
