About Me

Note - I will be away from my PO box for the first 2 weeks of October - I will rate everything as soon as I get back!

You can find hosting, rak-ing and swapping at Cheap Postage Swaps, Tags and Fun

I host offsite at Instagram and on Facebook as well as at atcsforall.com

I enjoy crochet, origami, zines, atcs, collage, Sharpies and pretty much anything to do with paper. I miss painting pottery since I sold my paint-your-own-pottery studio.

No thanks! Things I don't need or care to receive:

  • plain papers or paper scraps
  • incense or anything with a strong odor
  • herbal or green teas
  • anything licensed unless it's kawaii:)
  • anything religious
  • fabric - I can't sew nor have to time to learn
  • Please NO dollar store cosmetics, candles, candy/food, or personal care products - thanx!

ALLERGIES: Smoke, cat hair.

I am an early sender and a prompt rater. Please contact me if you have not received an item or a rating.

Also, I take most items to the PO to be weighed but sometimes what I think are simple flat envies go over an ounce and I don't realize it. If you get anything from me that comes postage due, please let me know and I'll send it to you!

Crafty Things I Make and Send

Handcrafted Things I tend to send: zines, crochet items, pocket letters, ephemera, atcs, anything origami, addy labels + swap cards, handmade notecards,

Comment: Thank you for the DC pc. I have been there twice now and it always resonates with me. Arlington is always overwhelming for me but it’s so beautiful. Have a great day!
Comment: Super cute card and fun Zine, Grace. The colors in your Zine were beautiful!
Comment: Thank you.

Comment: I love the two zines (Haikus for Halloween and Origami Water Balloon) you sent, Grace! Thank you so much! Thanks for the papers and cute paper clip, too. 😊
Comment: Thanks for the note and postcard. Your grand-baby must be here by now. How exciting! My youngest is in her senior year - bittersweet. My school year has been challenging. But I keep going because I am not a quitter! I am the youngest of 3 girls and have 2 girls. I am going to do what my dad did…offer to pay for a wedding or give money. I wish I had taken the money.

Comment: Thanks for the adorable and creative postcard.
Comment: This little ATC came in a little booklet of its own, absolutely loved them what a great idea and great artwork too. Always good to swap with you.
Comment: Woo Hoo! Love the stamps on my envie and all the goodies. Thanks.
Comment: This was a fun quick trade. I see we have some of the same guilty pleasures 😉
Comment: Thank you for the Hocus Pocus handmade card and all the fun Halloween freebies! I love making handmade cards. I am sure all of us will end up sending more cards than we receive not only because of possible flakers but because USPS routinely loses 3-5% of our mail. In any case, it is always a joy to receive from thoughtful and talented partners who send something cool. Thank you for being one of them and for hosting so many swaps 😉

Comment: What a cute card of lil monsters! I love your color choices!! <3 It is displayed prominently in my binder, thank you! Thanks for the wonderful note too. I hope all is well with you, your family, and grandkid!
cassie3001 rated for CPG Daily Q's #25 - Global on Sep 24, 2022
Comment: Thank you, Grace! A four day school week sounds interesting, but it also sounds like it could be a nightmare for working parents. The dress code in public schools is pretty non-existent here as well. The cat cowboy hat sounds interesting! Though I can't imagine a cat would be happy to wear it. I hope it was fun to make!
