About Me

Updated 2/26/23

I love paper. Books, bookbinding, altering books, cards, stamping, ephemera, (vintage, vintage-like).

I enjoy swapping with people from around the world. I understand that the mail systems can have flaws and things may not arrive to their destination. I pledge to reach out more than once before rating a 1 or a 3. I would really appreciate the same courtesy.

I often include extras that are profile based, not for the hearts (I do appreciate them though!) but because I have so much stuff to share and would like to bring a smile to people's faces. That said, please rate your swap. (I always will) It helps me continue to improve what I send out, and lets me know you received my envelope.

Raindrops on Roses

and whiskers on kittens.

These are a few of my favorite things"


Anything homemade

Dragons and Mermais

Vintage USPS stamps. // USPS Memorabilia (especially looking for unused lighthouse, classic art, artists, monarch stamps for a project or stamps representing anything on my favorite things list)

Loose memo paper / notebook paper, anything wide ruled.


Scraps of paper. (It's crazy some of the things people have sent me that belonged in the trash)


Comment: This envelope just got better and better! I Loved all the otteryness on the outside! But the inside with the little folio with everything! Thank you so much! I too love the butterfly stamps! Also, what book did those amazing pages about trolls come from?💕💗
Response: I'm glad you like it! I work at a thrift store and often get books that are damaged in small way and won't sell. . . I like to use them in my art and swaps!!! that book had many pages scribbled on, but I was able to rescue a lot of it. It is Notebook for Fantastical Observations from the spiderwick chronicles.
Comment: WOW! What a beautiful purple envelope, it was beautiful! Thanks so much for the extra goodies, I really like the fairy PC, paper and the postage stamps on the envelope. What a great swap. Sending hugs!
Comment: Thanks so much! I have another one of these from you that was different colors. I think it's cool to have like, a series!! Love having you in the group. Happy Spring!
Response: YAY! Which do you have? Hydrangea and Tulips?

djcamp04 rated for YTPC: Pocket Folder -USA on May 16, 2023
Comment: Oh my goodness! What a great swap starting with the Iris spuria covered envelope, it beautiful. Then opening it very carefully so not to tear it I find more beautiful iris’ & the adorable pocket folder with some pretty awesome ephemera! The Graphic 45 Blossom is one of my favorites. I use a little of it every now & then because I’m afraid once it’s gone I may never be able to buy more, lol. Thanks for sending some 🥰. Let’s talk about this folder. The paper you used is great! I love the raven/crow on it. I love crows. And last but certainly not least! That absolutely gorgeous picture of the iris in your garden. Omg it beautiful. Mom has some planted but for some reason last year they didn’t bloom & they haven’t bloomed this year (yet) either. In fact I only had 3 or 4 iris bloom so far. I’m blaming it on the drought last year. IDK I do hope they bloom again. Thanks for a great swap! ❤️❤️❤️
Response: Iris can be finiky . . . I hope they're just taking a rest for the season. My mom loves the iris too. More so the white one. . . . . but it's that time of year!
Comment: Thank you for the fun mix! I’m jealous that you work in a thrift store!

An anecdote inspired by your comment about books such as Benjamin Bunny. I flipped through "Mr Tiger Goes Wild" which I saw on the free shelf at my library. It had an inscription along the lines of "dear so-and-so, our kid loves to go wild at times. How about you?" The book was scribbled on throughout, too much even to be rescued for mailart. I wonder if the parents (or gift giver) looked at that and thought "probably not what note-writer meant by going wild, but there it is." :^)

Thank you for the surprise postcard. I appreciate you sending to me even if it was unintentionally addressed. :) The postal system did rough it up a bit but it adds character and shows it has had a journey. Take care.

I am absolutely blown away by the surprise mail that made its way to me. I cannot believe you made this card! It's fantastic, and I am beyond impressed and thankful you chose me to send it to! What a pick me up this was after all that has gone on! The tea is one of my favorites, and I am pumped to add your kitty to my album!! Also, I appreciate the fun paper clips and the shark pendant is phenomenal!! I'm assuming you made the mini card as well? You are so talented! Thank you ever so kindly, again, for sending me such cheer!
