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 lovely postcard! It's Dec. 7 here and I've yet to put our tree up too--my son is starting to get that pacing cat waiting for food look about him, so I know what you mean. Kids are so funny, the Christmas anxiety is real if that tree is not up December ONE on the dot. I'm gonna let him sweat it out another day or two though and give in. Happy holidays to you, and good luck to your granddaughter on her quest to get the tree up!
Response: Thanks for the heart. I hope your tree is up; ours STILL isn't!!! Merry Christmas

Comment: Thanks for the postcard! What did you use to seal it? I've been asking around as I haven't found the perfect seal yet, and this looks great!

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!
