About Me

I'm Karen, in my 40s married with 3 children and living in the UK. We have fish, gerbils, a cat, 2 dogs and I work full time.

In my free time I love paper crafting especially hand made cards, travel and memories journaling as well as pen pal letters, and calligraphy (newbie)

Style wise I like most styles apart from granny floral. I particularly like hugg/cosy and coffee at the the moment.

Colours I like most neutrals and autumn, but I am a little partial to doodlebug at the moment ☺️

I love quotes and positivity.

I love coffee, and don't like tea.

I love Mondays (I know, I'm weird), and don't like Wednesdays (post office isn't open, and feels like its dragging)

I prefer small groups to large.

I love Rom Coms and hate horror films (I like to feel good watching a movie not scared to look under the bed 🀣)

PLEASE NOTE :I can't stress this enough I prefer quality over quantity. (I have had a few swaps now which looked like they had dumped the contents of thier junk draw in an envelope 😫)

Just because something is not on the list below doesn't mean I wont like it. Anything that has been thoughtfully picked will make me very happy.

I like swapping...

πŸ’œStickers (NOT children's/ planner/ reward... christmas/Easter pls)

πŸ’œMetal Dies New or preloved

πŸ’œ Wax and seals. New or preloved

πŸ’œ Non tourist postcards.

πŸ’œ Die cuts and flat embellishments bought or handmade. I don't have a sewing machine so I especially appreciate embellishments with sewing elements.

πŸ’œ UNFOLDED writing paper ...... Anything to do with penpal writing. 😁

I love any of the American paper / Echo park etc craft paper /ephemera/stickers.

Please don't send me any cosmetics /facemasks/ creams I have more than enough.

I always always send my swaps made thoughtfully and on time. Please let me know if it doesn't arrive.

I always aim for a 5❀️. If you feel it didn't deserve a ❀️ pls let me know why as I always want to improve and don't want to disappoint.

Comment: Hi Karen! Love your card, share about your weekend and the stickers! You had me cracking up about your kiddos - it is amazing how messy they can be but wait til they get their own homes - a totally different ballgame! LOL! Hope you continue on your journey for your Girl's trip, it sounds great! All the best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)

Comment: Gosh, your calligraphy is *beautiful*! Thought it was printed for a few seconds as it’s so well done. Thank you for sharing your weekend - esp as Blackpool is a childhood haunt so it brought back great memories πŸ˜„

Comment: Thank you Thank you. Thank you. I love your note and the card you made is beautiful. I most certainly will send it out, most likely by the end of the week. I send encouragement cards to three people and I will most certainly enjoy using it. Loved the Christmas embellishments and will use them.

Comment: Thank you so much for this great handmade card! I am happy you didn't write in it as I like using them for birthdays at the senior program I work at. We've got a coffee lover's birthday in April. I will save your card for a big 87th birthday!

Comment: What a thoughtful swap. I was just making a pair of earrings and the little stars are perfect. Nice job on the card, I would be very happy to use it. I love penpaling and just lost a gal in November. Her family knew to write me as she had an envelope ready to be used with my address. Had her for 5 years…

Comment: WOW!! Such an amazingly wonderful package of ephemera!!! You were so generous. I loved slowly looking through all the bits and bobs. Thank you VERY much!! PS. Apparently Customs thought it was suspicious so they opened the envelope - must not have been in the mood for lovely stationary hahaha Thankfully they passed it on to me.
