About Me

I am someone who has always had pen pals from a very young age. Receiving "happy mail" is always fun, and it is a joy to spread the cheer as well. I love to try all different types of arts and crafts.

Mailing in the USA - ZIP+4 is important: Here is a link to properly address an item so the USPS "optical character recognition" equipment can read the address:


Swapping: If you believe I am late with a swap, kindly reach out to me to resolve the issue. I try to rate people as soon as I can, so please include the name of the swap (thanks in advance).

Please also reach out to me if there is any postage due.

I mark my swap items "sent" on the date I put them in by building's outgoing mailbox...it may or may not match the date the post office processed the envelope.

Reduce/Reuse/Recycle - I recycle bubble and large envelopes. I also save all the thin plastic packaging from craft supplies.
