About Me

I'm 60 years old, married for 30 years and still madly in love with my honey. We have two grown daughters, 3 grandsons, and 1 dog (Benny).

We live in a Minneapolis/St Paul suburb and love it here! Mounds View is a suburb of St Paul so either city works for my mail.

I always rate and I always send. If you don't receive something from me, please let me know and I can resend. I will do the same as this is a courtesy we all prefer.

I'm originally from North Dakota. I've lived in Minnesota for over 30 years. We still have friends and relatives in ND and visit them when we can.

I'm fascinated with junk and art journals. Love to see them and have just started making my own. I'm also making Zines and ATCs and love to see what others make. I also love Label Bags. If you swap LBs and get my name for any swap, please feel free to include LBs.

My hobbies:

Reading, books, visiting bookstores, reading about books, libraries, museums. I love most things books and mail related (authors, stamps, bookstores, libraries, etc). I also enjoy doing genealogy, scrapbooking, rubber stamping and making ATCs, cards, booklets, junk journals.

I love to travel and collect postcards wherever I go. I usually will do a postcard travel journal after I return home.

I love mail, writing letters, fun/unique stamps, Steampunk, mail art, whales, castles, nature walks, Moomins, doodling, pens, typewriters, owls, new notebooks/journals.

Looking for Label Bag swaps, Used Postage swaps.

Comment: Thank you for sharing your garden though there's not much going on right now. And don't worry, I'm absolutely fine with the pics. ^^ In my place there are flowers everywhere right now, so I thought the timing for this swap might be good. If I don't forget about it I will host another round in maybe August or so. I still like your garden, it's huge! Good luck with your gardening plans!
Comment: This was fun finding the right color.

Comment: Thank you for the bags I will pass them on!
Comment: You made such a sweet little collection of washi tape. I'm a cat person, so the cat butts got a laugh out of me. You had nice samples on the envelope too, that was a nice touch. Thank you also for your hometown zine. It's always so fun to read up about where people are living.
Response: Thank you! I love the cat butt washi too. I had come across it (and other super cute washi) at Planner Con in San Fran in 2017 and 2018. I hope to go again someday.
