ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ For Halloween and a Snack swap

I love all of the 1940s and 50s kitchy B rated Monster Movies and horror films!The ones like Bela Lugosi, Vincent Price, Boris Karloff star in.. those are the best! I don't have any of them so those are all great!

Snacks.. I love Peanut M&Ms, Movie theatre style Popcorn, giardettos, nacho cheese doritos (not spicy) black licorice, skittles, starburst, Fruit Mentos (I don't like mint), love the little drink pack singles for 16 ounce water bottles. Hah I don't know what else to write here -- message me and I'll keep thinking!

My focus word for 2021 is ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ MANIFEST

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ Important

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ 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!)

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ 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!!

2nd June, 2020

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...


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

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ True Antique Ephemera is what I love most! Most of my ephemera collection spans from mid 1800s to the 1950s

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ My journals are mostly done in a distressed, antique and vintage style. Mostly with authentic vintage and antique ephemera and papers. I do, however, love Tim Holtz style when the swap does not call for authentic vintage!

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっI love vellum stickers and clear backed stickers

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I use lots of antique old maps and old ledger papers, antique ephemera, vintage tickets, checks, pharmacy prescriptions, notes, old letters, antique stamps, old labels, old magazine ads, etc...

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I tend to decorate my envelopes with botanical images and vellum stickers, old book pages, washi and rubber stamps

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

Iʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I use a lot of lace and trim in my journals

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

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I love rubber stamped images on old book pages! They are works of art in their own right and I use quite a few of them in my crafting

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ 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!

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ 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 am working on a frankendeck if playing cards from each of the 50 states (DC and Puerto Rico too!)

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


ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ I collect antique (1930s - 1950s) linen postcards.

ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ 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!

Comment: Wow, This showed here fast! Took only 3 days to get here from NJ. Anyway, Love the Halloween Zombie PC! Thank you! Well, I hope you have fun decorating for Halloween! 😁 I so wish I could decorate for it. But being wheelchair bound & now bed ridden, I can't do anything but watch my dear hubby put it all up. 😒 Thank you Gabi for your words. It will take me 8 weeks total to heal from Spinal infusion. It royally stinks, the bed ridden part. But that's how it is.
Comment: thank you

WnWHS ~ Be a Millionaire Day ~ Profile Deco

If I were a millionaire I would buy a log cabin home in the mountains and be near the lake. I would want something I could make into a B&B or have space for each of my children and their families to live. I would also buy a building to start a private school in, and of course a nice vehicle and a bus for the school. I would also buy a luxury RV.

Thanks for joining this swap and please rate me.

Hugs, Pam
