About Me

I love anything handmade!! ANYTHING that you put your creative efforts into will be appreciated by me!

I most especially love decorated envelopes and mail art. IMO an envelope not decorated is not worth sending. But I would never rate down if this is not part of the swap...just something I really enjoy...seeing a decorated envelope in my mailbox.

I love making cards from recycled and repurposed items...recycled wrapping paper, tissue paper, office paper, vintage games, vintage papers, used greeting cards, magazine clippings, paper scraps.

I create other stuff (jewelry, magnets, decorations) as well from recycled tiles, floor boards, old watch parts, recycled fabrics, things found in nature, etc.

I have a SERIOUS addiction to free stuff, curb alerts, freecycle, rummaging, dumpsters, trash piles, thrift stores and yard sales!

My RecycLoves shop is on esty at: recycloves.etsy.com

Other stuff I love:

*trees and nature in general

*the ocean


*weird, strange, horror images and things

*unique playing cards

*vintage stuff (70's)


*rubber stamps

*handmade items


*art made from nature

*handmade drawings



*pirate ships/ships

*teeny tiny things

*little dishes/bowls


*Totoro and all Hayao Miyazaki characters

*anything strange and out of the ordinary

If you are in a swap that involves my daughter, she likes:



*zoo animals




I will reiterate, I absolutely love anything that is handmade. I find everyone's art and craft work to be inspiring.

If you're swapping with me...I welcome all of the above!! Everything old is new again!

Things I do not like/don't want/don't need:

*Anything Disney (!!!) and other main stream/movie characters

*anything fragrant, or smelly in any way. If I receive something that smells of cigarettes, it goes right into the trash...that's how sensitive I am to it. So if in doubt, I would rather you not send it.

*small tiny stickers that get lost in the shuffle and teacher reward stickers

*tiny scraps of paper. I have enough...overflowing containers!!!

Thanks for swappin'!!

Hi. Thank you so much for the book. I love it!! The weather is slowly getting warmer here, and it's reminding me and making me excited that it's almost rummage sale time! Trying to wrap my head around the fact that I am officially 40 yrs old today!!:-)

Remember me??

I just sent you an invite to my new group "Tudor Exchange." I saw your 'Fit for a King' ATC swap so I thought you would appreciate the royalty of the British monarchy.

Hope to see you there, my lady.

Elizabeth received your package for our Mail Art buddies. Holy Smokes... it's rare to hear her screech like that, lol. She was SO happy and excited. It started when she saw the Superman envie in the pile of mail. What a tip-off. You didn't even give Mom a chance, heehee! Thank you so much. They will send you something the weekend of April 8th. :)
