About Me

I am living a semi-retired life waitressing at a little creole restaurant in Ivoryton, CT.

I love paper. Books, making books, altering books, cards, stamping, all kinds of mail art, journaling, collage, stamps, etc. I also make beaded jewelry.

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 understand the disappointment of spending time on a swap and knowing someone seemingly did nothing.

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.

Comment: Thank you for what you sent. The postmark is blurred, so I can’t tell if this was sent on the 12th or 22nd of November. I am rating a 5 since I am not positive this was sent late.
Response: Thank you for giving me the benefit of the doubt since I put it in my mailbox for pick up on the 11 of November. I realize that was a holiday, no mail, so that's why it said the 12th. Did you just get it today? The other envelopes I mailed that day were all received by Nov. 18.

Dear KC, received your 3 part envelopes of goodies. Everything is so awesome! The paper goods are all really pretty, yes, I do like Oz, & yes, this kind of paper merchandise is not available in India! Thanks a lot, this is very generous indeed, & I am sure my daughter too will appreciate the stickers! This great RAK really made my day - no- my week! :)
