About Me

PLEASE contact me if you have NOT received a swap from me in a timely manner. I always send my swaps by the due date. If you have not received a swap, I will GLADLY resend. So, please contact me before rating a 1 or 3.

My favorite mail art is sending/receiving postcards, both store-bought & handmade. I enjoy sending the cards through the mail WITHOUT an envelope -- live life dangerously!!!

I love birds, real & crafted. I have a cockatiel who has been my pet for about 19 years. I love to craft with birds -- I have various rubber stamp bird images (from desert dweller - quail & roadrunner to tropical storks of various kinds). I love die cutting bird images & sewing them on postcards & ATC's.

Favorite Books

FAVORITE Books: science fiction, mysteries.

Favorite authors: CJ Cherryh, Geo RR Martin, Dana Stabenow

Favorite Television

Game of Thrones | NCIS | Orphan Black | Chicago Fire | Chicago PD

new passions: The Expanse | Schitt's Creek

Favorite Crafts

I've crafted most of my adult life; I've quilted, cross-stitched, scrapbooked (including Project Life) and now my biggest passion is for paper-crafting. I make lots of greeting cards, ATC's and post-cards. My adult daughter & I will craft together -- we made ATC's as thank you gifts for her co-workers. I have recently gotten a Gelli plate and am attempting to learn more about monoprinting.

I love earth tones -- browns, greys, greens, blues. I'll tolerate pink but it's NOT at the top of the favorite colors list!!! I'm NOT a fan of neons, though I'm sure my teen-aged granddaughter would love it!!!

Swapping

Postage stamps, washi tape, book paper (new and/or vintage), baker's twine, unusual ephemera, birds (who knew, right?), butterflies, flower die cuts -- any of these items in earth tones will be MOST welcome.

I'm a dietitian by training and have recently retired from the work-a-day world. I LOVE food and LOVE receiving food packaging/magazine advertisements from overseas. Some of my favorites that I've gotten in swaps are just food ads torn out of British & Aussie magazines; the packaging from food products in So. America & UAE. Sounds silly, but one of my favorite pen holders is the peanut butter container that I purchased in Canada > 20 years ago. Skippy is ubiquitous but it's cooler from Canada. :)

Comment: Thank you for the PC. I do like your journal question. I love our winter. Winter is a wonderful time to be outside as it is so mild in our state.
Response: My favorite season has always been fall, even in Arizona. I love the days (weeks, if we're lucky) where I don't need to use the AC or heat to keep the house temperature in an acceptable range. Thanks for the heart; see you around the swaps.

Comment: The card was lovely. I actually saw the most stunning butterfly is ever seen yesterday so this called the off nicely. I tried Discovery of Witches but couldn't get into it. It may be because I've had a hard time reading fiction lately.
Response: Thanks for the heart; much appreciated. My daughter shaving visual challenges with book reading and so lately has been enjoying audiobooks. After rejecting that format for a number of years, I've really come to enjoy them. I have listened to the 4 books in the ADOW world several times through while walking. I hope that suggestion might help you as well. See you around the swaps.

Hi Margaret! Just letting you know that I mailed out today a replacement for the AAA:Say Something ATC that never arrived. This time I went to the post office counter and had him hand cancel it in front of me so it better make it. It should take a week at the very most to arrive in Arizona from Oregon. Here's hoping this one arrives!
