About Me

Hi and Welcome! My name is Ellen and I really enjoy swapping. It's a great way to add to a collection, create new art and meet some fantastic people

A bit about me

Nature, Travel, Culture

  • I love nature and seeing so many beautiful wonders all around me. Visiting parks, beaches and museums are always so much fun!

  • Traveling around the world has been provided me huge opportunities. I've seen things straight out of National Graphic! Amazing sites and incredible cultures. Most impressive of all is always the people. I've learned more about myself and life from those brothers and sisters so far away all in third world countries.

  • Postcards * pictures * photos* country stamps * cultural art and information is welcomed❤️

KAWAII I absolutely love KAWAII! I've been somewhat of a collector since 1970's. My all time favorite are the Sanrio characters. But I do love it all!

  • Envelopes * large & small stickers * washi * paper of different sizes are items that make me smile.💜

Papercrafting I began my crafting journey by making scrapbooks and cards. I have so much fun creating and decorating handmade books and journals. My collection of paper, washi, laces, flowers, and bling allow me to make beautiful things as well as share what I have.

  • Well handmade items, clean, smoke free paper, epherma, washi, bling are gladly accepted❤️

Comment: Thank you for the happy mail! I love everything :)
Response: You're welcome! Happy that you like kawaii too 😊
Comment: I don't normally do this but I've been out of town and a lot of my mail got mixed up so I'm not sure if I received this or not so I'm just going to go ahead and Marco five in a heart for all my last swaps because I don't remember and I don't want to be unfair.
Response: Thank you😊

Comment: Thank you for all the large memos. Lately I've been using them for little notes for my mother-in-law. I think she doesn't know what to make of them and she's too polite to ask.
Response: I love using my memos. Any time I leave someone a note or small message, they always get a kick out of them😆

Oh my goodness, thank you so much for the RAK! I got several envies in my mailbox today and yours was so chonky that I was intrigued and saved it for last (save the best for last, y'know)! It's all so perfect! Absolutely obsessed with all of the floral/vintage stickers! I can't wait to use them in all of my paper crafts & they're perfect for decorating Postcrossing cards too! The little papers make perfect little backgrounds too! Tytyty!! 🩵
