About Me

I pledge to always rate. I understand that life happens. If I forget something, a gentle reminder is greatly appreciated! I do get frustrated by those that do not rate or do not respond to messages. I give great care to my swaps and like to know items have reached their destination. It's never too late to make things right. I enjoy notes tucked in with swaps...interesting snippets from life.

I am married with children and grandchildren. My husband and I love to travel whenever possible. Art and photography are a couple of my passions. I love exploring different avenues of creativity. I am a big believer in complimentary or alternative healing modalities, including but not limited to meditation, crystals, accupuncture, reiki; the list is endless.

I have been collecting postcards since childhood. I am a member of Postcrossing and Love notes. I can hardly resist beautiful stationery!

I enjoy being wrapped in a quilt, hot tea and book in hand. (especially on a rainy day) I'm a very eclectic reader. Book suggestions are always welcome. I love most teas and am open to new flavors. I am not a fan of anything licorice or peppermint flavored.

I love the colors of the ocean, sky, and deep, rich colors. I see the shape of hearts everywhere in nature and photograph them. I have quite a collection of found heart shaped rocks, shells, and bits of wood.

I keep an ongoing mixed media art journal. I collect quotes and poetry. I sketch, paint and doodle. I enjoy making artist trading cards, postcards and artist trading coins. I have recently become obsessed with making tags. I make and repair jewelry. I knit and sew a bit. I enjoy trying ethnic recipes.

I am a work in progress...learning new things everyday.

Likes: Unusual, vintage, steampunk, adult themed, sassy, science fiction, horror, Christmas, Halloween, All Saints Day or Dia de los Muertos. I visited Oaxaca, Mexico during the Day of the Dead festivities and love how the ancestors are honored. I am fascinated by Gods and Godesses, saints and sinners, history of ritual, symbology.

I have plenty of stuff, yet I find delight in surprises. I don't need small stickers or reward stickers, will pass those on. I enjoy using painted papers, unusual papers, trims, buttons, bits and bobs, keys, Tim Holtz , bees or anything with wings except flies and roaches :)

Random things: I have somewhat of an aversion to bananas, jello and pudding. I use a lot of herbs and spices in cooking. I am sensitive to smells, certain sounds, textures and overall energy of a place or person. I rely on my intuition. Kindness matters. Doing better one day at a time.

Another thought shared by a friend: " Do not compare your beginning to someone else's middle or advanced level." I think this applies to art, writing, and all sorts of things.

Comment: Such a nice bee package CF, from the bee envelope to the bee ephemera to the bee coin, and a lovely Edisto Island notecard too. The red and gold are a good combo. So nice to read that you've got a pollinator garden. 🐝 🦋 💚 Thank you for making and sharing your coin and ephemera. 🙂
Response: My pleasure! Love the winged things!

Comment: Hi Connie! Thank you for all the pink loveliness! You were so sweet to share your photos with me and the extra card you made - very appreciated! I am not a good rule follower when taking photos as well and also just take shots of what makes me happy! Life is too short to follow all the rules all the time! LOL! Hugs, Happy Swapping, and Snapping! ;)
Response: You are very welcome. I enjoy playing around with photos.

Comment: 2 of the 3 chunks I’ve received this time have been from cookie boxes. I’m honestly hoping it’ll be 3-for-3. Wish me luck!
Response: Good Luck :)

Comment: I love the ATC and the things you used. I’m excited to use the papers, die-cuts, and stickers as well. The hole paper as a stencil is such a creative idea! I did something similar and used to go to Lowe’s for their paint sample cards to use in art.
Response: I enjoyed this swap. I use paint sample cards as well! Happy Creating :)

Comment: Thank you so much for your thoughtful letter. I love the way you decorated the envelope It was very cute. I especially liked the chat noir stamp. happinez seemed liked the type of magazine I would buy. I really like magazines that focus on spirituality and well-being. :)
Response: You are very welcome! This was a fun swap. It is one of the magazines that can be used over and over.

Comment: Thanks for the yummy chunk. It sounds like you have seen more of Maine than we have. Since the recent restrictions, and with our travel plans cancelled, we have been taking a lot of day-trips by car. We have seen a lot of things we never 'bothered with' while living within a couple hour's drive all our lives.
Response: I do miss travel, perhaps that will open up a bit more. Enjoy the Spring.
