About Me

NOTICE 12/15/21: We had outgoing mail stolen from our mailbox this morning. I’ll be resending the swap that was in the box. However, this has me concerned that this could have happened before. Please let me know if you don’t receive a swap from me and I will gladly resend!

I'm a mom of 3 beautiful young boys (11, 9, 8). I'm trying to instill the love of mail in my 3 boys. They certainly love to take my mail to the mailbox and put up the flag! They are also more than happy to help me decorate my envies!! I live in a tiny "village" in Michigan and love Michigan State University (Go Green! Go White!). I love stickers, making my own envelopes, and making my own postcards. I can't remember a time when I didn't love sending and receiving mail!

We are cat people - we have two actual cats here along with my 8yo who loves to meow and pretend he is a cat. Lily is an 13yo tortoiseshell that we adopted in Sept 2018. Midge is a ball of energy with the cutest meow you ever did hear, adopted Sept 2020 after our dear Pounce passed away.

2020 has been a rough year here, even without the pandemic. My dad passed away in January, my grandma (best penpal ever) in June, and then Pounce in September. Update: Grandpa passed away in April 2021 so unfortunately the grief continues. Swaps are helping me cope.

Favorite Music

Most current country, some (not all) pop. I can never remember artists' names or who sings what...its just not my forte :) not so great with lyrics either, my kiddos know more words to current songs than I do! My hubby is the total opposite--great with songs and artists, can't live without music in his daily life.

Favorite Television

Grey's Anatomy, Superstore, Jeopardy, Atypical, Outlander, The Handmaid's Tale, Call the Midwife. Hoping to find a new series (with multiple seasons) soon.

With the kids, we watch things like Ultimate Tag, American Ninja Warrior, and the Titan Games.

Got an antenna and can play Jeopardy with the hubs again...although he still wins more often than not.

I love Disney movies, especially Lilo and Stitch and Beauty and the Beast. Will watch almost any movie genre....except horror. I'm just too much of a scaredy cat.

Favorite Crafts

handmade envies, decorating envies, flipbooks, handmade die cuts or embellishments, basically anything involving glue or scissors...

Just started doing decos and I am hooked!! Love those with themes that give me a chance to craft out of my comfort zone!!


I’ve been joining a lot more PC swaps lately and thought that my profile may be lacking in terms of direction for my partners here. Most of my partners seem to have a nice list!

But, in reality, I’d rather be surprised than get PCs in the same 10 or so styles that I have listed out in my profile. Some of my all time faves are things that I never would have thought to list out on my profile!

Would love to hear your thoughts on why you chose a particular PC !though!

Likes / Wishlist

Comment: Looking forward to adding to it! I got the resend, but not the one that someone stole from your box.
Response: Not surprised you didn’t get the original, none of my Xmas cards that were in the box the same day reached their destination either :(

Comment: Hey Jessica, thanks for the blue snowflake postcard. I just love it, in one of my favourite colours💙. Here in Belgium we are going for the hottest New Year ever, 14°C.😳 Not normal…Have a great end of the year and I hope 2022 will bring you joy (and maybe enough snow to make that snowman❄️⛄️❄️)

Comment: I love the vintage postcard. MERRY CHRISTMAS
Comment: Thank you, Jessica, for your card I received yesterday. Yes, I like a good glitter dusting from time to time too, and this one will definitely retain its sparkle. I loved how you lettered my name on the envelope too! That's one thing I want to practice more. I'm faking it right now, faux lettering lol, but I want to get a brush pen and practice the strokes. Have a Merry Christmas! 🎄😊... Karla, 12/19
Comment: Thank you so much for the very special card and lovely envelope! Merry Christmas!!

Hi! Thanks so much for the CPG Happy Mail tag envie! I love everything you included and it was so nice to receive the handwritten note from you as well. Here in western MI we woke up to around 6 inches of snow - this is the most we've had this whole winter season so far. Hope you enjoyed the new year and your 2022 is off to a good start. Thanks again!

Thank you for making my bday month special. It does stink having a birthday squeezed between 2 holidays. Everyone is on holiday burn out and forgets my birthday most of the time. Also thanks for the lovely zine. (CPG DEC)
