About Me

I like to read, make junk journals, altered books, my own hand-made ephemera from cut-outs, scraps of paper, ribbon, buttons and more. I am a devoted YouTuber. I follow quite a few channels, but love checking out documentaries and other channels that catch my eye.

There are many authors that I like to read. the list keeps growing as I discover new authors.

I love retirement; no money to travel anywhere but can do so through Postcrossing, YouTube, books and now Swap-Bot.

I love animals, especially cats; big cats and domesticated cats. I also am fond of birds and cows. I collect USA postage stamps for the most part, but now also collect stamps worldwide.

Collections Fenton Milk Glass Fenton Cat and other animal figurines Salt and Pepper Shakers Post Cards Books by my favorite authors (Robert B. Parker, John Sanford, Jonathan Kellerman, Stephen King, Dean Koontz, James Patterson, Michael Connelly, Iris Johansen, Victoria Holt, and quite a few more. Depression Glass Elegant Glass Journals (all kinds)

My favorite color is green. All greens, everything green. As a young girl my favorite color was Cobalt Blue primarily, but then again it was all blue, everything blue. The thing is I love color, all color. It's hard to choose. There's yellow and red and black and purple...all truly beautiful.

I will follow through with every swap I join. I am dependable, reliable, honest, happy, trustworthy, hard-working. I love life and am grateful for every second, every minute that I am given. I want to be the best that I can be and I want to never stop learning and striving to be better. I make mistakes but I try to learn by those mistakes and move on.

Sincerely Alma

Comment: Very creative and I absolutely love the Betty Boop cards. Thanks so much!
Response: You’re welcome. The Betty Boop cards were a great find. So happy to share them with you. 😊
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card and insert. Apologies for the late rating. Hope you had a happy holiday season.

Comment: Thank you so, so much for your great Christmas card, your kind message and the extra postcards <3 That was such a great surprise to find in my mailbox. I'm sorry for the blank comment box I left at first. Somehow my message wasn't saved. We have a little bit of snow since yesterday, and it's quite cold. So I guess it won't snow more in the next days. Did you get the 18"? That's really a lot:-) Wishing you a great new year ahead!
Response: Thank you for rating. January 13: That happens to me some times. I don’t know if I forget to save and then it’s hard to backtrack. I’ve started keeping a journal but that has been hard to keep up with, too. Anyway, I’m glad you liked everything. ….We only got about 5 inches of snow and it’s pretty much all gone now. Best regards, Alma

Oh my - such a lovely envelope of items you sent to me. You didn't have to send me an envie full of wonderful items and so many stamps!! That was so very nice of you, but not needed. You went overboard on the first envie. Thank you so much for a Happy Mail day! Frieda
