About Me

My name is Shannon and I live in the interior of British Columbia with my husband. I live in an area surrounded by glorious nature and lots of lakes, mountains and beautiful scenery.

a little more about me..

Likes: I have several likes so I will add to this list as time goes by. I love authentic vintage ephemera. Cigarette cards, bridge tally cards, old letters, ledger papers, etc. I absolutely love this stuff! Postage stamps and postal ephemera. Clear (legible) postmarks and old air mail envelopes. Vintage postcards and interesting postcards. Cool stickers, even cute ones I can send to my grandson. Painted papers, gelli plate prints, etc I love creating and swapping mail art including postcards, ATCs, rolodex cards, Decos, etc I create junk journals, art journals, altered books, omni journals and more. If its a handmade journal, I will probably like it.

Colours: I love all colours but I do gravitate towards rich jewel tones like cobalt blue and emerald or forest green. Brick red, deep yellow, etc. I also love metallics used in moderation. Purples, pinks, teals, oranges etc are all beautiful as well. I try and reach for colours that are outside my comfort zone once in a while and have been pleasantly surprised more than once.

Deco Swaps: I love swapping decos but I can only do thin decos without chunky embellishments such as beads and thick stickers. They just cost too much to forward on. Thanks.

I also do slow stitching, some quilting (especially scrappy quilts) and I love to incorporate stitch and fabric into my paper creations.

Not a fan of: Using stickers on art unless it has been fussy cut and it really adds to the piece. I would rather not receive scrapbooking paper and embellishments or card stock as I do not use them. Thanks.



*Random guitar picks for ongoing project.

*cigarette cards (love these silly things!)

*unique or vintage bookplates

*random oracle or tarot cards

*used stamps from all over the world

*I would love a random length of stitchable fibre to add to a project I started this year but abandoned. I will be picking it back up in 2024. Any colour, any length as long as it is stitchable. If its too thick, I will add it via couching. I am doing a stitched hoop that is about 10” in diameter. It will be completely filled with stitches and small interesting buttons/beads.


I will add to this as time goes on.

I am open to private swaps. I have a large collection of genuine ephemera and am always looking for more interesting pieces.

Postage Stamps

Postage Stamps

I have a large world wide postage stamp collection which I have decided to streamline. The stamps I am looking for now include:

World Wildlife Fund stamps from anywhere

Whales, dolphins, sharks, fish and all other sealife

Penguins, owls, bears, birds, basically any animals

Universal postal union, stamps on stamps, postal history

Stamps with foil or metallic elements

Trains, ships, lighthouses, planes, space

Singapore, Great Britain including the British Isles, etc, Canada, US, etc.

Etched or engraved

I love old stamps

There are many stamps which I like that don’t fit these categories so don’t let the list deter you from sending. I also use stamps in my art as collage fodder.

Having said all that, I am open to private swaps. Maybe I have something you are looking for??

I have a lot of stamps to trade. I am slowly working my way through my collection and selecting what I want to keep. Everything else will be traded or swapped out.

So far I am swapping out

Art on stamps,

Christmas and Easter


Some florals

Assorted countries


I have a large collection of postcards I am streamlining. I have many world wide city views, touristy, state, art, beach views, castles, churches, etc that I will be swapping out. I also have a box set of birds and a box set of garden fairies (both illustrated) that I am swapping out. I collect cards that are blank except vintage are ok if they are written on. I am looking for:

Lantern Press


Postcard Fair


Anderson Design Group

Blue Cats

Animal (mom and baby especially)

Maxi Cards

Large letter state cards

Chronicle Books





unique postcards

Tourist postcards that are not a photograph




Sea life




Cards suitable for kids (Disney, etc. these get sent to grandchildren)

Shoot me a message and let me know what you have and what you are seeking.


It’s the little things for me. I send a note with every swap. It’s my way of personalizing a swap that may not otherwise be personal. I also put a lot of effort into my swaps. I check profiles and try and send something you will enjoy.
