About Me

I'm 59 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!

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.

Comment: I lived all your zines. The Wacky month series are fun. Your bucket list before Covid was interesting. I wondered how Covid affected your ability to do any of the traveling you had hoped to do. I enjoy geneology too. I have done it since my teens. I have surname binders for my ancestors with copies of documents and family group sheets. I have looked at your website and blog. I want to spend more time reading it. I find you to be a very interesting person!!
