About Me

Updated 2/21/2024

I love paper. Books, bookbinding, altering books, cards, stamping, ephemera, (vintage, vintage-like). I'm also enjoying junk journaling.

I work at a thrift store during the day as the media manager, (books, dvds, cds, LPs, tapes) (PRP3 if you are inclined to check it out on FB - it's a great cause!) and we get a lot of books in that are damaged in some way. Water, spills, enthusiastic coloring,

I like to repurpose the books in some of my swaps. So if you get a swap from me that includes some sort of book pages, I'm not a vandal, just trying to give these books a little more life.

I enjoy swapping with people from around the world. I understand that the mail systems can have flaws and things may not arrive to their destination. I pledge to reach out more than once before rating a 1 or a 3. I would really appreciate the same courtesy.

I often include extras that are profile based, not for the hearts (I do appreciate them though!) but because I have so much stuff to share and would like to bring a smile to people's faces. That said, please rate your swap. (I always will) It helps me continue to improve what I send out, and lets me know you received my envelope.

MamaMangrove rated for AMA Altered PC #15 on Mar 28, 2024
Comment: Hilarious! When I first saw your card I thought it must be from my brother in the Virgin Islands, as we exchange such weird and out-of-the-ordinary PCs & he's fond of adding people in their birthday suits! It gave me a good laugh, which was just what I needed. Thank you :))

An anecdote inspired by your comment about books such as Benjamin Bunny. I flipped through "Mr Tiger Goes Wild" which I saw on the free shelf at my library. It had an inscription along the lines of "dear so-and-so, our kid loves to go wild at times. How about you?" The book was scribbled on throughout, too much even to be rescued for mailart. I wonder if the parents (or gift giver) looked at that and thought "probably not what note-writer meant by going wild, but there it is." :^)

Thank you for the surprise postcard. I appreciate you sending to me even if it was unintentionally addressed. :) The postal system did rough it up a bit but it adds character and shows it has had a journey. Take care.

I am absolutely blown away by the surprise mail that made its way to me. I cannot believe you made this card! It's fantastic, and I am beyond impressed and thankful you chose me to send it to! What a pick me up this was after all that has gone on! The tea is one of my favorites, and I am pumped to add your kitty to my album!! Also, I appreciate the fun paper clips and the shark pendant is phenomenal!! I'm assuming you made the mini card as well? You are so talented! Thank you ever so kindly, again, for sending me such cheer!
