About Me

Profile edited Dec 9, 2022.

I won't flake!

If you have not received something from me, then one of the following has happened:

1. The Postal Service has lost the package or is running late.

2. I am on my deathbed.

3. I AM dead.

So, PLEASE contact me if you don't receive something from me. I am honest and want all my recipients to be happy!

I am diligent at rating.

My name is Kelly K, I am a papyrophiliac, a lover of paper!

  • I live near the big city of Raleigh, NC.

  • I am a later-in-life bloomed artist. I love all paper projects and am up for private swaps, if you'd like.

  • I am a mother to five kids with only one still living at home.

  • I do paper crafting, Junk Journal, listen to a lot of different music, love to read my Bible, find vintage items at thrift stores, and I LOVE everything Snail Mail!

My Values

PLEASE DO NOT SEND ME HOLIDAY OR NATIONALISTIC ITEMS. BECAUSE I really HATE to have to throw things out because they are against my beliefs/ values, even though I AM a Magpie, like I said!!!

  • I pledge to ALWAYS check profiles before sending even when not specified, because I would want the same done for me!!

  • I almost ALWAYS reuse packaging, so please expect this and know that I don't mind at all receiving recycled packaging!
