About Me

I am retired, and live in an active senior community with my also retired, very spoiled dog, Wrigley. I create cards for family, friends, and the residents in my community.

I enjoy card making, mixed media art, mail art, ATCs, treasure books, junk journals, and learning new techniques. I like handmade postcards sent naked, in an envelope, or plastic sleeve, your choice.

I like bright colors and vintage, whimsy and sparkle, and especially handmade items. Some of my favorite themes are: dogs, cats, birds, nature, flowers, butterflies, mushrooms (love mushrooms), fairies, angels, gnomes, music, moon, stars, sun, clouds, baseball, (I am a major Chicago Cubs fan!), and anything else you want to create. Surprise me.

My list of dislikes is short. Please no cruelty, or anything disrespectful to anyone. No religious or political items. No spiders or other creepy crawly bugs. I don’t use a planner, or notecards, and don’t collect postcards. So, not a dislike, but if you send them I will probably pass them on.

JJJ:Let’s Make a Junk Journal

I like pockets, belly bands, tuck spots, tags, altered envelopes, and just about everything else. Vintage, shabby chic, retro, all are okay. Or, current, recycled ephemera. I like all colors, no favorites. Please no creepy crawly bug pages, no politics, or religion.

Comment: Yowza Batgirl! Best envelope ever! My treat pouch is fabulous. Love every little bit of it from the paper to the washi to the bling and of course the snowmen. The bonus glassine bag of Christmas ephemera simply sent me over the moon so a mere thank you seems lacking. But thank you I do!

Comment: Hi Jan and thanks for not one but two layered tree tags! Wasn't this a fun project and a good way to use up lots of scraps of Christmas paper. And you were so clever to make one of washi tape - that never occurred to me. I love how the paper tag sparked and shines! And thank you for the extra goodies as well. Wonderful swap and happy holidays to you!
Response: It was a fun project. Happy holidays to you too. I’m happy you like my tags. Thank you for rating, and for the heart.
