About Me

Profile edited: September 2021.

I am Beth from Oregon, USA. I'm married with no children. Sadly, we had to say goodbye earlier this year to our little furry feline who brought us much joy and a little bit of fur. =^..^=

I am a believer and follower of Jesus Christ.

Random things I enjoy:

  • Rock/mineral hunting on beaches and "in the middle of nowhere.โ€
  • Getting together with friends for fellowship and card games.
  • Doing jigsaw puzzles.
  • Organizing my craft room.
  • Keeping the lost art of letter writing alive by writing to my pen pals all over the world.
  • "Treasure hunting" at thrift stores, garage sales, and estate sales, and finding cool paper crafting or letter writing items.
  • Receiving colorful snail mail in decorated envelopes (white ones are so boring!)
  • Sending colorful snail mail to brighten up someoneโ€™s day!
  • Song birds singing their sweet songs.
  • Meeting other Christians who enjoy my love of paper arts and/or writing letters.
  • Cats (meow!)

Favorite Crafts

I LOVE playing with pretty papers, stamps, pens, markers, washi tape, etc. I use them to make cards and envelopes for swapping, writing to my pen pals, and for encouraging/brightening up the lives of others with โ€œa handmade card sent to them via snail mail.โ€ FAVORITE THEMES: Flowers ๐ŸŒธ , song birds, cats ๐Ÿˆ, dragonflies, snails ๐ŸŒ (whimsical only), tea/coffee, postal, friendship, or pen pal related ๐Ÿ–Š.

FAVORITE COLORS: All the happy, bright colorful ones! As for metallics, I prefer gold or copper over silver.

Wish List

  • UNUSED USA POSTAGE: Vintage (the kind you have to lick or glue to seal) or the current self stick kind.
  • ADDRESS LABELS: With my address on them. Homemade works!
  • FLAT STICKERS: In my preferred themes above; I especially love colorful flowers. Please do not send dimensional stickers.
  • DIE CUT FRAMES or LABELS that I can stamp a sentiment in. Love stitched, fancy, scalloped, etc. White card stock preferred.
  • STARBUCKS gift card, for a coffee or other treat every once in awhile.
  • TEA: green tea varieties (jasmine, toasted rice, and other "earthy" ones); I enjoy tropical additives (figs, pineapple, etc.). I like oolong tea. For herbal, lavender is nice. (Please see my tea dislikes below.)

Donโ€™t Care to Receive

We all have our own likes and what you like might not necessarily be what I like. Below is a list of themes or items that just arenโ€™t my thing.

  • Halloween, the Santa side of Christmas
  • Loose glitter, or cards with glitter that shakes off a card and gets all over the place.
  • Mustaches, circus, Hello Kitty, Disney, cartoony, Asian, creepy/crawly bugs or insects, snakes
  • Scented items: Perfume, lotions, incense, candles, make-up
  • Postcards
  • Tourist items (e.g. blank postcards, magnets & keychains)
  • Chipboard embellishments
  • Tea in these flavors: plain mint, plain lemon, tea that brews up red in color (itโ€™s usually heavy on hibiscus and itโ€™s too tart for me), licorice. I donโ€™t care for rooibus tea, nor black tea.


I always send out my swaps and usually it's very soon after partners are assigned. If for some reason you do not receive a swap from me, please send me a PM or an e-mail before rating me poorly and I will do the same for you. If the swap got lost, I will resend it.

I will rate upon receiving your swap or shortly thereafter. I would appreciate you doing the same for me.

Beth, thanks so much for your very thoughtful gift. The asian stamp is absolutely beautiful, and I will certainly enjoy using it. Appreciate your thinking of me! Patty B

Beth, thanks so much for the delightful and beautiful card! I loved the story about the ribbons, and must admit I need to think about estate sales as a potential source for crafting supplies! I laughed when I read it was "dog grooming ribbon", BUT it certainly makes a great card!! Thanks again, Big Hugs, Patty B

Thank you for the wonderful RAK! I can't say enough, but my daughter is excited to use some of the items as well. I was in need of Winter/Christmas washi so that is awesome. The red envelopes too were needed. We plan to share some of these things with our friends as well! It was like Christmas!
