About Me

Updated 7/7/2022

I love paper. Books, bookbinding, altering books, cards, stamping, ephemera, (vintage, vintage-like). I'm starting to explore Junk Journaling.

I enjoy swapping with people from around the world. I understand that the mail systems can have flaws and things may not arrive to their destination. I pledge to reach out more than once before rating a 1 or a 3. I would really appreciate the same courtesy.

I often include extras that are profile based, not for the hearts (I do appreciate them though!) but because I have so much stuff to share and would like to bring a smile to people's faces. That said, please rate your swap. (I always will) It helps me continue to improve what I send out, and lets me know you received my envelope.

Raindrops on Roses

and whiskers on kittens.

These are a few of my favorite things"

Vintage USPS stamps. // USPS Memorabilia (especially looking for unused lighthouse, classic art, artists, monarch stamps for a project or stamps representing anything on my favorite things list)

Vintage calling cards

Library Ephemera. (card catalog cards, library pockets, withdrawal cards)

All things Monarch butterfly


Decorative paper napkins

Letterpress stationery

Bees and Beekeeping, Dragonflies

Hot air balloons

Ephemera (especially letters, I'm such a Mrs. Kravitz)

Handmade envelopes

Reward Stickers / anything foam

Religious theme

Loose memo paper / notebook paper, anything wide ruled.


Scraps of paper. (It's crazy some of the things people have sent me that belonged in the trash)

Comment: Thank you so much KC - this swap finally arrived! I opened it up on my work break and had so much fun going through it! The envelope itself is cute with all the kitty images and you were so generous to include so many fun flat surprises. The PC, notecard, and stickers are all adorable and the different loose cards too! My favorite are the cat postage stamps! I enjoyed reading your note and the cat on the card looks a bit like mine!

Comment: How many hearts can I give you???? Thank you for an amazing and generous swap! I love that you used real flowers on the APC; something I have thought of doing but haven't done yet. The little note cards are so darling. Do you print the photos yourself? That is an interesting collection of book pages. I found myself checking the names on the yearbook pages, looking for any familiar ones. Lol.

An anecdote inspired by your comment about books such as Benjamin Bunny. I flipped through "Mr Tiger Goes Wild" which I saw on the free shelf at my library. It had an inscription along the lines of "dear so-and-so, our kid loves to go wild at times. How about you?" The book was scribbled on throughout, too much even to be rescued for mailart. I wonder if the parents (or gift giver) looked at that and thought "probably not what note-writer meant by going wild, but there it is." :^)

Thank you for the surprise postcard. I appreciate you sending to me even if it was unintentionally addressed. :) The postal system did rough it up a bit but it adds character and shows it has had a journey. Take care.

I am absolutely blown away by the surprise mail that made its way to me. I cannot believe you made this card! It's fantastic, and I am beyond impressed and thankful you chose me to send it to! What a pick me up this was after all that has gone on! The tea is one of my favorites, and I am pumped to add your kitty to my album!! Also, I appreciate the fun paper clips and the shark pendant is phenomenal!! I'm assuming you made the mini card as well? You are so talented! Thank you ever so kindly, again, for sending me such cheer!
