About Me

I enjoy doing a variety of swaps: sticker sheets, notecards, postcards, stationery, bookmarks, fridgie magnets, matchboxes, penpal letters, photos, journals, and more.

I have been penpaling for many years, and enjoy making new friends.

I'm a member of several Meetup groups in the Los Angeles and Pasadena area, and a former Red Hat Lady.

I’m a member of a 12-Step program.

I enjoy making paper crafts, and mail art (I make funvelopes).

I'm a bargain shopper, and I love to hunt for treasures at local thrift stores and estate sales.

Floral, cats, nature scenes, art work, Victorian, chefs, Mary Engelbright, Dr. Seuss, Christian, Angels, frogs, Betty Boop, Laurel & Hardy, Lisa Frank, Peanuts, Shrek, Red Hat Society, Far Side comics, clean humor, Kakuro, TalkRadio, inspirational quotes, human interest articles, true stories of Random Acts of Kindness, PBS/Huell Howser).

Favorite Colors: purple (all shades); pastel colors; blue (all shades).

Dislikes:

Comment: Thank you so much! I love this card and I love the article you sent me too! I just looked online and the website for the Museum and research center is still up-- says "Due to COVID-19 regulations, the Schulz Museum is temporarily closed until further notice. Please visit our Calendar page for online events." Hopefully it's all intact and safe!! Hugs!
Response: That's good to know. Perhaps it was a former home of his that burned in a wildfire a couple of years ago in Santa Rosa, CA.

Comment: Thanks for the nice letter and PC. That sounds like a nice trip. I enjoy seeing wildlife. I have to, as I have deer, moose, fox, coyote, badger... in my yard very frequently. We have also had bear and wolf but they, along with the skunks, possums, and raccoons usually visit in the wee hours of the morning.

Comment: Calendars are an excellent source for Cut n Paste postcards. I love the sleeping sandpipers - the camouflage colour, the texture. Very nice. Thank you bf0932. P.S. Yes, it's been a very strange summer but all-in-all a nice one.
