About Me

I'm a Newbie and am so excited to join! I've always loved paper and crafting! I especially like repurposing materials to create something beautifully new. It's fun to find unique uses for items.

Background:

Growing up, I maintained relationships with family and friends via mail. The art of letter-writing and sending silly stuff is something I loved to do and truly miss. I have also loved journaling over the years but haven't done much of it in a long time. I've recently begun making "stuffed" cards for family and friends - and my recipients tell me they love the thought and care that goes into it as well as the overall look. It's fun to find attractive ways to display items.

I don't plan to amass a huge stash of supplies because I worry it would be hard to keep it all organized and easily accessible! But it will be fun to send some goodies and receive some too!

I'm responsible!

I will only take on what I can truly manage. Right now I'm joining Swaps that state that Newbies are welcome. :)

Currently watching

I've recently enjoyed watching Happy Mail videos on YouTube. A couple of Channels inspire me: Vivian at the Paper Letter Blog (I enjoy watching her create and watching her open mail from her subscribers) and Johanna Clough for her junk journals and general aesthetic.

Also love to watch documentaries of all kinds and have been fascinated with tiny houses - and miniatures in general! I think that began with my early interest in dollhouses and is now appealing for the minimalist and frugal living points of view. Less is more!

I am really looking forward to the Swap-Bot fun ahead!
