About Me

PHOTOs- I take photos of all my swaps & envie's before I send them out - so I will email a copy of the photos if something goes awry or gaga with the US post to verify that I'm not a flaker or flaking. Please let me know if there's a problem and I'll gladly send it again. {Lessons learned from 2020 & COVID19}

I will contact you if my swap doesn't get there within a reasonable time because I like to know if the time & effort I spent making a treasure made it to you. Unless overseas, then I generally wait 30days or more. But please, do me the CURTSEY of acknowledging my efforts timely.

Aloha! I give ❤️❤️ BECAUSE in a world full of people judging, criticizing, thumbs up/down, like/disliking everything, if someone took the time out of their day to buy a stamp, send a card/note/letter, walk to the mailbox, etc... just to brighten my day, then I am grateful because nobody is forced to do anything they don't want to do.

So thanks in advance for giving of YOUR TIME, spending YOUR money to mail me your special creations. You didn't have to share so that speaks volumes of your character - in my humble opinion...if your dislike list is long, this too says much of your character. I'm here to learn and experience other people, not just "stuff" & "things".

I put a lot of thought & 💕 into sending out your happy mail because I want to bring a smile to your door.

Globe-Trotter!! Places I've lived: internationally: England🏰, Turkey🧿, Germany🥨, South Korea🎇, Italy🍇, mainland Greece🍋 + USA: Hawaii🍍, Montana🦌, Nebraska,🌽 Utah⛷️, Texas🤠, New Mexico🌶️ & Maryland🦀.

Comment: Thank you for the lovely tea themed pc(s) & extras. Very nice! I look forward to contributing to your postcard art. This is my first time with this swap, too. Where you used to live, is not that far from my town, comparatively to TX, anyway. Wonder why you moved? To answer your Q, about my name, it has different ancient origins (on different continents, too!) meaning Blessed, Strength of Heaven, Peace, Love, Freedom, Wonder & Awe facilitator. ~ It will be fun adding to your tea themed pc! Warm tea is liquid Love! Yay! 💕 ~ Z
Response: Thank you for the 💖 and letting me know about your wonderful name!! Leaving TX was bittersweet, we moved because my hubs got a new job. And you're right, I googled your hometown and its close - same weather patterns no doubt. Don't miss the whiplash of North TX weather, lol!!! February 2021 is still a bad memory!! I hope we are partners again!! xxMuggleMom

Comment: Thank you for the lovely personalized swap and letter. I like your Home sweet home ATC and collage paper mini kit (what a cool idea!) I appreciate you adding a green heart to the envie and using the word "breathe" on the house. What nice Happy Mail!
Response: Thank you for the💖 and call it karma but the "breathe" fell out of my ephemera folder when I went to embellish. I kid you not. It was one word on a strip of 6 words from a 12x12 sheet. So I took the cue and used it instead of putting a flower there. I'm so glad you like it and thank you for the kind words!! xxMuggleMom

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful ATC. I really like how you used the vellum overlay. The envelope used inside out was very clever. I just started cutting parts of the envelops. You are very clever!
Response: Thank you for the💖 and I found a bunch of youtube videos on upcycling junk mail envies - they are the clever ones, I just love to learn cool tricks!! I hope we are partners again! xxMuggleMom
