Favorite Crafts

I enjoy swapping inchies, stickers, playing cards (not in sets, just single images of any size or game, new or vintage, small or standard size), fortunes from fortune cookies, project life cards, junk journal items,bookmarks, postage stamps, recipe cards, rubber stamped images,and postcards. I like all sorts of postcards for my collection, including recipe, tourist, art, weird, map cards, vintage, photo, multi view,free ad and handmade postcards. I collect Catholic holy cards and prayer cards. I collect U.S. and worldwide mint and used postage stamps, interesting postmarks and First Day Covers. Thank you for your kindness.

I enjoy all kinds of postcards you may send, written or unwritten in an envelope, your choice. I am starting to join more hand crafted and chunk o cardboard style postcards,open to personal trades too.

Most stamp collectors like new and undamaged postage stamps. I actually enjoy all the old ones that are not in such good condition. I find the old intaglio stamps very fascinating.

About Me

During July and August 2022, I will be visiting family and doing house repairs. Thus I will be joining just a few swaps over the summer. Late August I will resume hosting Wax Seals Swaps and Bible Journal Pages Swaps. Wishing all a lovely and restful summer season!

My favorite animal is the bunny rabbit. I also like camels and elephants. We have an orange and a brown tabby who rule the household and we love them!

I would like to tell everyone that if you get flaked on in any swap, that I would enjoy sending you whatever you missed. I join all sorts of swaps, so message me and I will send you something!

Thank you to all who helped me to complete my collection of 50 U.S. map postcards and covers. Now I am starting to collect a postmark from every country in the world on an envelope or a postcard.

Please note I do not accept food items.Also I don't need or care for reward stickers or emoji stickers or loose glitter.

Comment: Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for the awesome journal page and beautiful extras for my Bible journal! I have been gathering stuff for my journal, but this swap was my first attempt to make anything for it. I can be a slow starter, (you know, don't want to make a mistake) but I think I'm ready for round 2. Thank you for setting up this swap and getting me ready to get out of my comfort zone. Have a blessed day! Hugs, Diane

shirleyinCA rated for 3 AD Cards to 2 Partners #3 on May 16, 2022
Comment: Thank you for very interesting ads and extras, too! Are you willing to share any locations up near you where you find ad cards - for when I go up to visit my little grandson? By the way you had said you'd add their need for a 4 BR house to rent to your prayer list - they got a miracle for sure: a small (just 1200 sq ft) very basic 4 BR home listed on Santa Barbara/Goleta border and 83 families asked to see it that first morning! It costs them a horrible $5000/month rent but it is at the end of a cul de sac next to a bike trail, has an enclosed back yard with an orange tree, the tiny rooms are clean and freshly painted and now they are a good bit closer to adopting some children! Thanks for your prayers.
Response: You're welcome Shirley!
Comment: Thank you so much for the gorgeous pc! <3 Al

Hello Barbara, I think my rabbit postcard for CPG: Cut n Paste PC #328363 (Global) is lost. It's been 8 weeks since I mailed it. So I dropped another Cut n Paste PC in the mail today (not a rabbit this time). Fingers-crossed that it arrives by May 20.

Hi Barbara!

Hope you are well. Thanks for the swap ideas on the group page. I will add one or two of those next month.

Hugs Indira

Hi, Barbara, Thanks for the encouraging comment. Here is a saying a saw on a poster many years ago: "We are an Easter People and Hallelujah is our Song". Have a wonderful and blessed Easter. Take care, Nathalie
