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. 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: Thank you for the pretty postcard and verse from Psalm. Also, thanks for sharing with me about Betty Malz, I'll have to find the story of her. Have a blessed day!
Response: I listened to her testimony/story in case the tape when I was in my 20's I think. The vision of the words "He sent his words and healed them" has always stayed with me. But sure if I quoted that part of scripture. I'm going to go listen to it again.

Thank you for the 2 RAKS over at RAKS only USA. I loved the fussy cut postage stamps and the poinsettia recipe cards. I also loved the sunflowers you added in .

Thank you for the surprise mail of a birthday card with lovely words of encouragement! I had a wonderful weekend spent with family at the cabin! Saw lots of wildlife, Ruffed Grouse, Turkey and 5 Elk, lots of deer!

Thank you so much for the extra postcard and stickers included with Postcard train #35, it arrived safely. Don’t worry about the address mixup…it happens to all of us. One time, my mom’s Mother’s Day card was returned due to no postage adhered. 😆
