About Me

I am a happily married woman (20 years) and have 3 teenage kids. I am looking for pen pals.

Favorite Crafts

I love to watercolor paint, junk journal, smash books and do Happy Mail.

Favorite Colors

I like themed color palettes.

I am not picky abot what the color is as long as it is aesthetically pleasing.

I have made Happy Mail kits in Americana, Green/blue, vintage off whites, and outdoorsy.

I would love to theme something for a pen pen pal.

Favorite Books

I love to read, period. I have library cards with 4 major libraries and usually have 30 books, audio and print on my tablet. American History, American Historical Romance, Romantic Suspense, True crime, Suspense, Humor, craft idea or techniques, and cook books are usually on the list.

My life

I have survived breast cancer. I have had 14 different abdominal surgeries. I do not wish to receive any cancer survivor stuff. I feel that I have just dealt with what is in front of me. During my reconstruction recovery I went septic and nearly died. That was more impactful then cancer.

Things I like

I am currently looking for some photo slide, if you have a bunch gathering dust, I would love to have them. You can take the photo out or I will. This is an ephemera project.


Botanicals images of trees and plants

Anything forest related (I have a HUGE, 300 pieces or more, Smokey Bear bookmark collection, let me know if you want vintage Smokey)

Vintage anything, cards, printed ephemera is fine, if you found it, I will love it.

Washi tape, blues, green and yellows, florals, mountains etc.

Any tags or pockets for a junk journal

Canceled stamps from anywhere, or made by you

Fibers, not yarn

Charms to use as dangles

Colored pliable wire

Jewelry findings or unique ideas for dangles

Lace, 2 inches or more vintage or not

I am intrigued with sari silk

Sequins or shaker materials

Favorite recipes


Paper flowers

Sewing machine stitched paper.

Linens, I have a deep love for tatted doilies and embroidered dresser scarves. Scan your favorite and share the print out!

Garden, gates, houses in die cuts.

Die cuts that you cut, I don't have a machine

CD of fun digitals?

A memory dec base, if you have the punch send me a couple!


I am using Pirate Ship to calculate shipping. If I get it wrong let me know! I misweighed a swap the other day and added a bunch of postcard stamps to make up the difference, I hope it works!

Things I do not care for

Herbal teas, I am allergic. Stick with black tea.

Anything cancer survivorish

Cotton basic yarn

Stinky perfumed items, once again allergic

Wool, raw, spun ...all give me hives

Cooking Junk Journal

I do not care for green peppers, I will take recipes with them in it in small quantities.

I adore canning and preserving

I love Holiday baking and meal prep

Comment: I don't know about you, but this swap was so confusing. We both did these super different (I rec'd 3 cards in part 1 and added to all three and sent them on). I can't wait to add to the card you sent. It's right up my alley. :) I loved the extras you sent too. In fact, it isn't my first time opening up a swap from you and saying "ooohhh" with a big smile on my face. Thank you so much!
