About Me

My name is Marie. I live in northwest Wisconsin with my husband Eric and my furbaby R.E.O. I have a bachelors in Art History and started a masters, but realized it wasn't the path for me, but I still love art!

I used to have a YouTube channel about postal mail. If you are postal obsessed like me, you may be interested in my videos. Visit me at: Marie Loves Mail

I can not stress enough that I have NO intention of flaking. If you have not received something PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me know PRIOR to giving me a bad rating so I can mend it and send a resend if necessary or look up the tracking number if its a larger package.

Favorite Crafts

I love to scrapbook and make cards. That eventually turned into a love of making ATCs and Deco books as well. I don't consider myself "good" at any of those things but I sure love it!

I am an unashamed recycler and regifter. If I get something in a swap I can't use I'm going to pass it on because I know someone else can use it (other than throwing it away.) I am also an avid recycler. I love to make things out of something others would throw away. I reuse all the packaging I receive. Please don't be offended if I recycle something.


I use a Passion Planner for my planner because I need to run my life on half hour increments. I highly recommend a Passion Planner for busy people.


While I appreciate any and all extras, please don't send me list pad sheets or napkins. I have so many and I really just don't know what to do with them all since I really don't use them.

I'm not a Disney kind of gal. Sorry.

I HATE OWLS...an owl tried to eat my/parents dog once. He swooped in for the kill and thank God missed. Since then owls and I have not gotten along.

The mustache craze as well is over done. I understand the awesomeness of the original cause in which I support, however the commercialism of putting a mustache on everything to me is over rated and over done. No thanks please.

I REALLY dislike peanuts and peanut butter. I can't even stand the smell so please don't send anything with peanuts or peanut butter in it.


Comment: Thank you for your card and note. We didn't have any snow that was more than flurries until New Years Day. We very seldom have snow at Christmas.
Comment: Thank you! Love the card!

KarlaKC rated for New Year's Card Swap USA on Dec 30, 2021
Comment: What a beautiful card, Marie! I love the little townhomes, and I didn't notice till after taking a photo (check out my IG) the detail of the words "Joy", "Love" and "Hope"written on the buildings! What a sweet surprise! To answer your question, yes, I do have some goals for the New Year. I need to write them down, however. I feel it's always best to put it in writing. It gives you something to look upon through the year and to re-focus if necessary. Thank you for the Happy New Year confetti and the napkin and cute goody bag. What a fun swap to open! Happy New Year! ... Karla, 12/30
