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

Comment: Alma. Thank you so much for the clever postalette you sent to me! I liked the way you added the floral strip to the side as a border; I may borrow that idea and make some stationery with my favorite themes. 🙂 I also live the beautiful card and matching envelope you included. It will be hard for me to send it off because it's so gorgeous! I enjoyed reading your letter and will answer it soon. Thanks for a great swap!!!
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful homemade notecard. I can see how much hard work you put into it. I truly enjoyed the scriptures you used describing your mother and the description you gave of your mother. It was truly encouraging.

Comment: Thank you!
Comment: What a fun pc. I love the irony of adding "go paperless" from you mail. I love how we can all take the same list and create things so different from each other.
