About Me

Just a heads up -- I upload pix of what I'm about to send to ^^^ that Flickr account. If you don't want to see what is coming your way, best not to look, yet. :)

I'm a married, mother of one university student, daughter. I work part time in a grocery store.

I have a toy poodle, a large cat and 2 canaries.

Likes

I like my ATC's to be in Portrait mode/orientation, so that they are all stored the same way in the binder and you don't have to turn the binder sideways to see some of them. (So, the 2.5 inch is the width at the top and bottom, and the 3.5 inch is the height on either side.)

I like the ATC to have something on it besides a pencil-crayon colored drawing. Embellishments, or ribbon, or washi tape or die cuts or embossing make the ATC look fabulous. IMO.

I prefer vibrant colors over pastels.

I love rubber stamps (and acrylic ones)

Mail art and making the envelopes

Hand made envelopes

Die cuts

Embossed paper

"Ancient Alien" stuff

Calligraphy

Birds

Cats, dogs

Tarot Cards

Note cards

Used gift cards -I collect used or cashless gift cards from Starbucks, Chapters, Walmart, ETC. (You can send ones loaded with money, too, I don't mind !! :D)

Poetry - nice sayings, not religious. Quotes or song lyrics.

Doubles of ready made, light colored, ATC background paper. (Because I always make 2. One for you and one for me)

Washi tape

DisLikes

Please, no food or candy items

No point sending ephemera - I just can't use any more

And please, no religious items.

Pet Peeves

Postage costs are outrageous, especially international! (overseas)

So, I started an ATC group called- ATCanadaUS,

ATCanadaUS

Please join!

Comment: Hi Laurea I just received my package - the ATC was lovely - blue is my favourite colour. Thank you so much for the extras - I love to receive ephemera. I am so jealous of the writing you put on the envelope. I have always wanted to learn calligraphy but have not tackled it yet. Thanks again and I hope we swap again sometime soon. Pat
Response: I'm really glad you liked every thing and thanks for the 5 <3 !!

Hello fellow canadian!! I hear you on international postage rates-working in a post office I try so hard to help people make their mail qualify for the cheapest option-which is still 2.50 internationally! Crazy!! I hope you have a wonderful day and I hope to swap with you again one day! :)
