About Me

Hi! I'm Cheryl! I'm married and I live in Plainfield, IL, about 40 miles southwest of Chicago. I'm a huge Chicago Blackhawks hockey fan.

Proud fur momma of an "energetic" hound-mix dog named Jack, who we adopted from a local shelter (Fall 2018).

I am a Social Worker and my focus is helping adults with severe mental illness live independently in the community. My motto (acquired from Pinterest): "Love thy Neighbor....No Exceptions!"

I love all things postal, snail mail and mail art. I'm not sure what I enjoy most...sending mail or receiving mail. I love stamps and first day cover envelopes as well.

I enjoy visiting central Wisconsin and I am addicted to Cheese! :)

I enjoy going on tours (cemetery tours, factory tours, ghost tours, historical tours)

One of my simple joys is stumbling upon an interesting quote. Sometimes just watching tv, listening to the radio or reading a book can lead to the surprise of a quote that moves you. For some odd reason, I especially like very odd/obscure quotes, lines from movies and music lyrics. If you have any favorites please pass them along.



*Vintage ephemera (greeting cards, TV guide pages, etc)

*quirky, random, unexpected


*journaling....a mix of junk journaling and gratitude journaling

*Stickers: kawaii mini puffy stickers, Korean diary stickers, planner stickers, odd/unusual stickers, promotional stickers, holiday stickers, vintage stickers......I really like stickers!

*Good Luck themes: four leaf clovers, happy Buddha images, horseshoes

*natural stones & crystals

*Animals: deer, llamas, wolves, chipmunks, squirrel, birds, turtles, elephants, pandas, alpacas, Clydesdale horses

*Stationery - traditional/weird logos/businesses with cool graphics

*PINS!! My newest collection. Disney trading pins, fun enamel pins, unusual pins.

*miniature enamel/glass/metal figurines

*Foods/Flavors: hazelnut, anything chocolate, nuts, coffee *stamps, first day covers

*dog themed items (brown & white colored dogs - Jack Russell/Hound mix)

Stocking stuffer swaps: I love these swaps and put quite a bit of time into finding the right gift and wrapping the gift nicely. I really like present presentation, it enhances the experience :)

*Postcard wishlist: I am not picky, I love all types of postcards (used, new, in an envelope, naked). I do love vintage PC's. I'm also fond of postcards with scalloped edges. I enjoy images of water (ice, lakes, oceans, fog, steam, beaches, rain, waterfalls), clouds, Ansel Adams, black & white and cinema/TV. I like odd and quirky cards and I don't mind offensive cards.


*reward stickers/toddler type stickers



*cigarette/smoke smell


Favorite Television

Some of my favorite shows.... The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, The Good Place, The Office, Parks and Rec, Kath and Kim & Outlander.

Currently re-watching: Pee Wee’s Playhouse and The Andy Griffith Show

*Anything humorous....I love comedy and great one liners, (some of my favorite comedians: Jim Gaffigan, Mitch Hedberg, Melissa McCarthy, John Pinette....too many to list)

Favorite Movies

I love great movies.....I've watched the AFA Top 100 movies of all time (checked off of the bucket list!).

Favorite Books

I enjoy suspense and psychological thrillers and non-fiction audio books.

Comment: Thank you for the nice postcards - Elvis is so handsome here! I also like the coyote pup, I never see pups about, only the adults. I love the Wisconsin map card - very cool and I had never heard of Theodore Roosevelt National Park - I will have to look that up! I have not been to Chicago although I have friends who live outside of the city. I hope all is well with you - take care and stay safe and healthy!

Comment: Great choices depicting HOT, Cheryl. I had to turn up the AC :)) Love how you continued the theme with the hot chocolate envie & it didn't escape me that you used a circus stamp too! The vintage circus parade booklet was fun as well. Thanks for such a thoughtful swap --oh, and Jack is adorable!

Hi, I see you turtles and animal postcards, so I was wondering if you'd be interested in joining my Scales 'n' Tails group? We currently have a turtle ATC & a dragon postcard swap on the go.
