About Me

Updated 3/17/2022

I love paper. Books, making books, altering books, cards, stamping, ephemera, (vintage, vintage-like). I'm starting to explore Junk Journaling.

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"

Library Ephemera. (card catalog cards, library pockets, withdrawal cards)

Pika rated for AMA: Sender's Choice Mail ARt- May on May 7, 2022
Comment: KC - what a delight it was to open such a fun little portfolio of ephemeral bliss! I not sure if you did it before or after you saw who you were paired with- but it was a perfect fit for this birdwatching mail art enthusiast. Thank you for all the care you put into making your card enjoyable to explore and open. And I love your ATC. I am typically a HD-HP ATC type so it’s fun to receive ATCs that use other techniques that can inspire me to try new things. The different textures were great together.

Comment: Hi KC! Thank you for the beautiful botanical love pc! It is so pretty and I love that you used real flowers on it - so cool! Everything about your pc from the design, cut, front and back - wonderful Happy Mail! All the best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Oh YAY! I was worried that it wasn't going to make it, as I mailed it at the same time as "what I like about spring". . . .

Comment: Once again, beautiful work . Thanks for all the purple. I have ideas for a few of the goodies. I am shallot to hear hubby is on the mend.

lrm1980 rated for PA: Cat(s) on May 2, 2022
Comment: Thanks for the super fun cat pc and nice note!
Comment: I'm positive I received this but not sure why it is showing unrated. Thank you for the wonderful swap. Be well.
Comment: OMG!!!! I love it! Thank you so much 😁 I hope you’re not giving up on knitting. It’s so relaxing after you get the hang of it. I recently taught my Auntie. They said I’m a really good teacher so I made a knitting 101 video in hopes of helping others. https://youtu.be/kizj9Xo5BJg Also, I’d suggest starting out on straight needles. You can knit flat with them but I feel like they confuse beginner knitters. Happy swapping 😁
Comment: Hi KC! I wish I could you give several hearts as I just love your card/note/memories and all the goodies! What a beautiful share and it is so appreciated! Spring comes for a day or two and then it gets chill/cold again - sigh! Our Daffodils were awesome though they were last month - mine are just yellow but how they make me happy with their cheery color! Now the dog woods are in bloom as well as red bud trees - still some color and the hope that spring will get here at some point! LOL! Thank you again for the wonderful and thoughtful Happy Mail! All the best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)

heliogal rated for WIYM: Index Card Art: Spring Rabbit on Apr 19, 2022
Comment: I loved how you decorated your envelope and your sweet spring bunny is so happy and lovely!! I really like graphic 45 papers too! And OMG!!! I am so thrilled you included you husband's spice mixtures- they are so unique I can't wait to try them! What does he recommend to use with the lemon and rose one??
Response: the lemon and rose goes great with a pasta salad, or on fresh vegetables!
Comment: Thank you! I love the card!
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful items you sent for this swap. So many neat things! The page from the yearbook was so interesting to read. I love pages from old books too! All the ephemera just made my heart smile! Those old pictures and Kodak slides...Eeek!!! I wish I could give you more than 1 heart!

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!
