About Me

You can find hosting, rak-ing and swapping at Cheap Postage Swaps, Tags and Fun

I host offsite at Instagram and on Facebook as well as at atcsforall.com

I enjoy crochet, origami, zines, atcs, collage, Sharpies and pretty much anything to do with paper. I miss painting pottery since I sold my paint-your-own-pottery studio.

Styles I like: modern farmhouse, beach/tropical; clean/IKEA, shabby chic, hand drawn, and of course, Hello Kitty.

Styles I like less: victorian/vintage, lace, nudes, gothic/dark or religious, cutesy, kitschy country.

LIKES: Fav colors include sea blue/sea glass, navy, turquoise, red, rosy pink, burgundy, purple! Fav scents are citrus, linen, simple and clean.

  • mini zines!
  • good quality stickers (botanical, origami, seasonal)
  • Hello Kitty flat items
  • washi tape
  • yuzen paper or origami paper
  • asian or botanical ephemera for collage
  • antique book pages or music sheets for collage
  • die cuts, fussy cutouts for collage
  • tea towels, handmade lovely
  • anything from or inspired by my etsy favorites
  • anything wine, beach/seashell (but not mermaid)
  • stud earrings - silver or stainless
  • Fav Postcards - travel, greetings from, beach/tropical, snarky, wild birds/songbirds, asian, Hello Kitty, Greece, fine art repros, Key West, ocean.
  • Collecting "Greetings From" pcs with the big bubble letters - trying to get all 50 states. I have AR, CA, CO, FL, KS, KY, ME, MI, MN, NV, TN, TX, OR, UT) but I would love any others!

  • Fav food & drink: dark chocolates, chocolate with fruits or nuts, anything almond, andes mints, hard candies in travel tins; decaf black teas like decaf orange spice teas, decaf earl or lady grey tea, tea biscuits or stroopwafel cookies!!

No thanks! Things I don't need or care to receive:

  • planner, kiddie, teacher/reward stickers
  • fabric/lace/ribbon (have too much already!!)
  • plain papers or paper scraps
  • incense or anything with a strong odor
  • herbal or green teas
  • anything licensed unless it's kawaii:)
  • anything religious
  • fabric - I can't sew nor have to time to learn
  • Please NO dollar store cosmetics, candles, candy/food, or personal care products - thanx!

ALLERGIES: Smoke, cat hair.

I am an early sender and a prompt rater. Please contact me if you have not received an item or a rating.

Also, I take most items to the PO to be weighed but sometimes what I think are simple flat envies go over an ounce and I don't realize it. If you get anything from me that comes postage due, please let me know and I'll send it to you!

Crafty Things I Make and Send

Handcrafted Things I tend to send: zines, crochet items, pocket letters, ephemera, atcs, anything origami, addy labels + swap cards, handmade notecards,

Other things I like to send: postcards, profile surprises, stash (I have lots of stash), food/tea/candy, notecards, recipe cards, penpal letters, local/tourist items.

Comment: Thanks so much for the notecard, so funny that you got me as a partner again! I join these too not just because I like the swap, but also because I like to get partnered with swapppers outside the usual group. Don’t you worry though, always happy to get mail from you!!
Begokschaf rated for CPG Watercolor ATC Coin - US on Jun 23, 2022
Comment: Great job. I love the clouds. I have such a hard time “seeing “ negative space. I like your coin. I have limited talent. I’m sure you’ll pass me up. 😁

jeka396 rated for CPG Just a Note #5 - US on Jun 21, 2022
Comment: Thanks so much for your nice note! I loved the rainbow card with the faces so much!! I’m crossing my fingers that you won’t get COVID on your upcoming trip too. (We DID get it on our recent trip to the UK but didn’t have symptoms until we got home). Thanks for the notecard, PC, and stickers too!!
Comment: Yup, this definitely qualifies as weird or ugly, LOL! But Fantasia is a really beautiful movie! Disney villains are truly scary - I can’t even watch some Disney movies again as an adult! Thanks for hosting this swap!! : )
Comment: Nice postcards. Thanks

WildStick rated for CPG Just a Note #6 - Global on Jun 17, 2022
Comment: Thank you for the lovely note and extras, I love the cow stamp you used too! I got into the snail mail game a little too late to snag me some of those heritage breeds ones, but I love them. I didn’t get into snail mail until last year at 28, so your daughter still has plenty of time haha! Thanks again! <3
Comment: Thankyou for the awesome postcard.
Comment: Tysvm! ❤️

Comment: Thanks so much for the zines! Your zine about Arkansas was really cool, I learned a ton that I didn't know although I grew up here in Southern Missouri and knew quite a bit about the state (so I thought!). Happy swapping!
Comment: Thank you for the collection of BEAUTIFUL napkins!! I feel decoupage in my near future ❤️❤️🐿️❤️❤️

Thank you

for granting a CPG wish for me with the envie filled with pretty botanical ephemera and cute mini pockets- I felt a Jane Austen vibe "playing" with it all! :)

BusyB on Jun 22, 2022:

Thank you OG for the awesome envie full of wishes for CPG June! I love, love the handmade pockets and your mail art of hand drawn flowers on the envelope. So special, all will go in my journal! Summer arrived just like that yesterday on summer solstice! This weekend will be too hot to be outside so I'll be inside crafting. lol Always fun to receive an envie from you! <3 Happy Summer!

chimerix on Jun 21, 2022:

I'm so jealous of your cruise! DH and I were going to do an Alaskan cruise this year, but ended up needing to see family instead. I hope you have a blast!

katjl on Jun 21, 2022:

Thank you for 2 RAK postcards for checking in. You’re right about the ridiculous prices and cost of living here and Hoboken as well. I have a lot of NYC postcards but I actually don’t have that one! Lol 😂
