About Me

I like to read, make junk journals, altered books, my own hand-made ephemera from cut-outs, scraps of paper, ribbon, buttons and more. I am a devoted YouTuber. I follow quite a few channels, but love checking out documentaries and other channels that catch my eye.

There are many authors that I like. The list keeps growing as I discover new authors.

I love retirement; no money to travel anywhere but can do so through Postcrossing, YouTube, books and now Swap-Bot.

I love animals, especially cats; big cats and domesticated cats. I also am fond of birds and cows. I collect USA postage stamps for the most part, but now also collect stamps worldwide.

Collections Fenton Milk Glass Fenton Cat and other animal figurines Salt and Pepper Shakers Post Cards Books by my favorite authors (Robert B. Parker, John Sanford, Jonathan Kellerman, Stephen King, Dean Koontz, James Patterson, Michael Connelly, Iris Johansen, Victoria Holt, and quite a few more. Depression Glass Elegant Glass Journals (all kinds)

My favorite color is green. All greens, everything green. As a young girl my favorite color was Cobalt Blue primarily, but then again it was all blue, everything blue. The thing is I love color, all color. It's hard to choose. There's yellow and red and black and purple...all truly beautiful.

I will follow through with every swap I join. I am dependable, reliable, honest, happy, trustworthy, hard-working. I love life and am grateful for every second, every minute that I am given. I want to be the best that I can be and I want to never stop learning and striving to be better. I make mistakes but I try to learn by those mistakes and move on.

Sincerely Alma
