Here to help keep snail-mail alive. I've "met" some wonderful people here and consider them friends. With that said, I try to put a bit of care and thought into swaps and encourage the same.

As far as hearts go, I give them for TPG: thoughtfulness (yours), presentation (yours), and giddiness (mine). I don't need extras with swaps since I'm in a constant state of downsizing. I prefer quality over quantity. But if I send you extras, it's because I have something I think you can use (i.e., you're helping me downsize). I love decorated envies, especially when they feature your artwork.

Note: I'm allergic to cigar/ette smoke, and anything dusty gets me sneezing, too. So please don't send smoke or dust my way.

Favorites

  • colors: red, grey, yellow, aqua; purple & orange together
  • places: πŸ’— Scotland & England; Japanese Tea Garden, San Francisco. Wish list: Ireland, France, Japan, Scandinavia
  • flat stuff: kawaii sticker flakes, colorful unused USA postage, personalized swap cards, holiday stickers, baker's twine, anything BTS (world's oldest fan)
  • not-so-flat stuff: measuring spoons, gel pens, glue-dots, anything BTS :-)
  • creativity: sewing & wreathmaking. Love fabric pre-cuts and high-quality quilting cottons (Dashwood, Dear Stella, Art Gallery, Windham). I'm a certified fabric hoarder and just as much a fabric snob.
  • themes: retro botany, UK, woodlandia, outer space, UFOs, k-pop, chalkboard art, echinacea, Shinzi Katoh cats
  • book collections: James Thurber, Clare Turlay Newberry, Shel Silverstein, Edward Gorey, Stephen King, Brian Wildsmith
  • stationery: anything literature-themed, colorful envelopes, kawaii, fun pens
  • washi tape: cats, kawaii, woodland animals, Japanese, Scandinavian, nature scenes, Eric designs
  • mail art: love original doodles, colorful washi, and collage on incoming mail
  • animation: Howl's Moving Castle, Chicken Run, Bob's Burgers, Shaun the Sheep, Teen Titans Go, Wallace & Gromit, LEGO Movie, Book of Life, South Park
  • movies: About Time, Parasite, Being There, To Kill a Mockingbird, Sophie and the Rising Sun, North by Northwest, The Departed, Enchanted April
  • tv: documentaries, k-dramas, What We Do in the Shadows, Dark Winds, Ozark, Fargo, Vikings, After Life, Welcome to Waikiki, Schitt$ Creek, The Office
  • music: BTS, GOT7, Enhypen, TXT, Van Morrison, Al Green, CCR, Santana, Valerie June, Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, War, Led Zep, George Strait
  • Japanese kawaii: Favorite brands are Papier Platz, Saien, Doronbox, and Q-Lia. Kutusita Nyanko and anything Shinzi Katoh top my wish list. (Love Pusheen, also, but it's not Japanese.) I don't have a need for small kawaii memos and tape samples, but I do use stickers.
  • animals: I'm an animal lover and on some days prefer them to people. Cats are my favorites (have 1), but I'm also a fan of donkeys, alpacas, Highland cows, foxes, owls, sheep, dogs, and unicorns (have 0).
  • spring: daffodils, dogwoods, stargazing, spring peepers
  • summer: fresh veggies, homemade lemonade, fireflies, Outer Banks
  • autumn: pumpkin farms, Halloween, crunchy leaves, crockpot chili
  • winter: snowfall, Christmas, quilts, birds at my feeder, puzzles
  • cute woodland designs: hedgehogs, owls, deer, raccoons, pines, foxes, botanicals, vintage camp scenes
  • sinfully dark chocolate

Comment: Thank you so much, Donna, for a wonderful swap! I love the HK/kitty washi/black cat decorated envie. The black cat card you sent is so adorable. I love the art on it. It's definitely a keeper. The 2 Mind Wave sticker sheets are AWESOME!!! The one with the black cats/tuxedo cats/grey and white cats is especially special to me. The black cats remind me of my beloved Johnny Cash and the grey and white cats look just like my dear Frankie Mae. The markings are spot on! Today has not been the best and you have actually put a smile on my face which I didn't think was possible. Thank you so much for making me happy. =D
Response: It's always fun sending to you. I'm glad you like the cat stickers and envie and they brought some cheer to your day. And thanks so much for the kind rating!

Thank you so much for the USA Happy Mail RAK it arrived today and I love it! The cryptid stickers are absolutely perfect and totally unexpected ~ Thank you for such a nice gift :) I hope you're enjoying some beautiful weather where you are too, take care!

Thank you for this wonderful Happy Mail RAK you offered and I won! I just love the camping themed washi tape! That is neat because I don't have anything camping themed. I also love the Flower post cards! They will be great to use! Thanks again!

kiddomerriweather on Mar 12, 2022:

Thank you for your condolences regarding Johnny Cash. I miss the little monster every day. I wish my mom would let me have another black cat, but I'm not allowed to have another cat right now. We still have our "kinda feral" female cat who lives 24/7 in the garage. She's lived with us for about 3 years and she loved her some Johnny. I'm trying to make her a house cat, but she prefers the garage. LOL! She's the sweetest little thing though.

warheart on Mar 2, 2022:

Thank you for my profile comment!! I haven't figured out pictures yet. One of the days lol. I hope you are doing fantastic! Take care!
