About Me

Hi! I'm a 47 year old Wife, Mom and Grammy. I have four grand kids (2 boys and 2 girls).

I started out doing Project Life and then amassed a collection of kits so I started creating Pocket Letters which led me to swap bot. I love creating Happy Mail for others (and of course receiving it!) I'm really enjoying creating fun mail art with stamps and various ephemera. I also started creating ATC's and postcards. I'm currently addicted to stamps (clear/rubber) and am always on the look out for fun/unique designs that I can use in my outbound happy mail. I just started card making and I'm really enjoying it.

I always send on time and take special care creating my swaps. If you don't receive my swap, please let me know and I'll make it right. If you ever receive something from me with postage due let me know and I'll take care of it.

Please don't feel obligated to send extras, but here are some things I like:


numbers/letters (esp. A and 4)

gift tags

stamps (wood mount,clear or hand carved by you!)


gelli prints

planner stickers (for my daughter)

hand written notes and decorated envelopes

decorative mailing labels (for outbound mail)

ephemera (book pages, postage stamps, tickets, magazine clippings, old receipts, game pieces/cards, library cards, maps, napkins, labels etc). Would especially love magazine clippings from fashion magazines.

embellishments and die cuts

patterned paper napkins (to use for mail art)

unused postage stamps

used postage stamps

anything with a foreign language on it

anything handmade by you!

Themes I enjoy: Black and white is my favorite color combo. I love all other colors, really no favorite. Polka dots and stripes, Tim Holtz style, Vintage. I also enjoy modern designs and bright color combos.

Postcards I enjoy: fun patterns, religious, illustrations, numbers/letters, fashion, magazine, Harry Potter, books, funny, quotes, clocks, cameras, old barns/doors, Disney, Disneyland, super hero, Pantone, movie/TV related or books. I'm fine with Zazzle or Ad cards. Anything happy/fun/different! :)

I collect things with numbers and I collect the letter A. Also love bingo cards, eye charts, globes, old cameras, quotes and bible verses.

Christmas is my favorite holiday and spring is my favorite season.

Favorite Music

I like all types of music. I mostly listen to Christian and Country.

Favorite Books

Love historical and modern romance. I also enjoyed the Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Twilight and Divergent series.

Favorite Movies

Any Romantic Comedy and I'm in!

Watched Harry Potter more times than I can count.

Action movies with a little love story are also a fave.

Favorite Television

Nashville, Once Upon a Time, The Middle, Big Bang Theory and Modern Family. Just started watching This is Us and The Catch.

All time favorite is Friends.

Favorite Crafts

Really enjoy creating Pocket Letters. Also have done Project Life for the last few years. I've recently started Postcrossing which is really fun. Some other crafty things I enjoy:

-Gelli Plate printing


-Silhouette Cameo anything (Shirts, pillows, art, etc)

-Home decor

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful card. This the 2nd time I've seen this stamped image; who makes it? Thanks also for the unused vintage postage and "happiest mail" stickers.
Response: The flower stamp? It is from Rubbernecker stamps. I got it at a stamp expo but I think you can order online. Glad you liked the card!

camelsamba rated for HMPC: Put a "Napkin" on it on Aug 23, 2017
Comment: Great postcard! I can't tell what part is napkin, everything melds together so nicely. Also the texture is nicer than what I often end up with - what kind of glue did you use?
Response: So glad you liked it! I used mod podge to adhere the napkin.

Comment: Love your PC with postage theme! Your snail stamps are super cute!
joybells2426 rated for HMPC: Sender's Choice PC-Aug on Aug 17, 2017
Comment: Thanks for the postcard! I'm not sure what adhesive you used, but the top layer was only attached to one edge when it arrived. I've never had anything come from you with that problem. Maybe this adhesive isn't up to the challenge:) It was cool though. I actually didn't get your letter. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. I hate when stuff gets lost in the mail.
Response: Oh man, that is bad news! Sorry about the postcard, I wonder if it was because one the papers was really thin. I have your letter on my PC so I'll just resend it!

I got your letter today. Thanks! I love the hand stamped tissue! So cool! I'll write back soon. BTW, I have requested that we be "friends" here so that I can find you easier. I think it doesn't tell you that you have a request anymore , so you have to go into relationships to see it.
