POSTCARDS - I prefer STORE bought and NAKED, most handmade ones i have recvd were poorly made. :(.. Please no ad, or digital (ie zazzle etc) thanks MY FAV part of the PC is the stamp and the postmark... PLEASE try to use a regular stamp instead of the print outs from the Post office.. Hearts for stamps!!!!

Favorite Movies and Music

I love comedies, except the vulgar ones, Most action, and most all summer blockbusters!!

Ive updated my music lately... I got bored with the top 40 and the radio...so I have gone to listening to Pandora and Spotify again. I have a couple I love, radiohead, adele, and coldplay.

Favorite Television

I love my DVR, so this list could get really long, I like most TV except daytime stuff. Survivor, The good Doctor, This is us, bachelor

Favorite Crafts

As I said before, if its has paper to do with it, i love it, I have been scrapbooking for over 20 years, But seriously addicted to it in the last 12.

I have made custom items for others. Most i make paper rick rack for cards and scrapbooking layouts. All multicolored. I also make vintage recipe albums from paper bags, they are really full and chunky(2010-2015).

SINCE I do have a scrapbooking paper addiction, I thought I would add a list of my favorite paper companies, in no particular order, of course, MME, Basic Grey,Graphic 45, Bo Bunny, Websters, Bazzill, 7 Gypsies, October Afternoon, Crate paper, Prima, AND anything TIM HOLTZ


No adult themes or nudity, vulgar or in poor taste. Lets keep the swaps classy!!! Coffee or tea.


Zentangle ATC's, ANY ATC's with doodling on them.

anything with a scent, i am sensitive to smells, Prefer items from smoke free environment. no food in the mail, have children that have allergies.

folk arts, country style not my thing!

Dont like cats, chrubs or religious items, so if you have a cat with wings holding a cross, you may want to pass that on to the next person, :) contact me at my email [email protected]

Comment: Hi Wendy and thanks so much for the very cute paper doll journal page. This swap was such great idea and a good way to use up some of my huge stash of TH paper dolls. I like your background of vintage book pages and the doilie - creates a perfect setting for the two cuties - I'm guessing they are sisters? Any way, it's really a cute page and I thank you so much for such a great swap!
