About Me

Everyday day I wake up and make the decision to be kind, to give hearts because it's the VERY LEAST I can do to be a good & compassionate person - I can be the change I want in the world...

  • "Create whatever causes a revolution in your heart."

  • “The universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them.”

  • “Be the weirdo who dares to enjoy.”

Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear

PHOTOs- I take photos of all my swaps & envie's before I send them out - so I will email a copy of the photos if something goes awry or gaga with the US post to verify that I'm not a flaker or flaking. Please let me know if there's a problem and I'll gladly send it again. Thank a Postie for all their hard work for us crafty swappers.

I will contact you if my swap doesn't get there within a reasonable time because I like to know if the time & effort I spent making a treasure made it to you. Unless overseas, then I generally wait 30days or more. But please, do me the CURTSEY of acknowledging my efforts timely.

Aloha! I give ❤️❤️ BECAUSE in a world full of people judging, criticizing, thumbs up/down, like/disliking everything, if someone took the time out of their day to buy a stamp, send a card/note/letter, walk to the mailbox, etc... just to brighten my day, then I am grateful because nobody is forced to do anything they don't want to do.

So thanks in advance for giving of YOUR TIME, spending YOUR money to mail me your special creations. You didn't have to share so that speaks volumes of your character - in my humble opinion...if your dislike list is long, this too says much of your character. I'm here to learn and experience other people, not just "stuff" & "things".

I put a lot of thought & 💕 into sending out your happy mail because I want to bring a smile to your door.

Comment: As always, Toni, great reviews! I'm so glad you enjoyed Girl, Woman, Other so much. It's definitely worth reading twice -- I agree with you, the second read allows you to trace those invisible strands linking the various characters and stories. I might try the audiobook in a few years -- the narrator sounds awesome! I've requested the print copy of Perfectly Ordinary People from my local library. I'm somewhat tempted by Sarum -- and still not tempted at all by the Outlander series! Thanks so much for great reviews and recommendations. I read the Amanda Vickery a number of years ago and remember it as being a good read.
Comment: I love the envelope and the your fun note paper. I agree clean teeth is to be celebrated with an exclamation mark! AND also sunshine! You have more guts than me--I think I'd break out into a cold sweat on a balloon ride. I love your hot air balloon page in Sonya's Exploration deco. I like the ATC-size of the deco.

Thank you for the AMAZING RAK! Those notecards & envelopes are adorable and I can't wait to use them as either birthday cards or make them into decos!

Thank you also for Sonya's Astrology Cruciform deco and your Open theme cruciform deco - they are both pure eye candy!

Thank you also for the Utah postcards. Your state is stunning and you are so fortunate that you can travel to these beautiful locations for vacation.

Thank you so so much for the LDS postcards and project Life cards. I REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR KINDNESS. THANKS!!❤❤❤❤

Hi Toni, Thank you so much for the wonderful postcards you sent me for the Vintage PC WTA! And I love the fact that you went to the trouble of finding out about Virgie Storey, the 15 year old sender of the 1941 postcard. That was a great thing to do! Knowing the story behind the postcard adds so much to it. Thank you again!

captkristi on Oct 12, 2022:

Got your postcard hideout tag - thanks so much!! The papers are awesome and will go to good use. I am tagging along with my mom to her craft fair in December. I think I am going to bring some of the junk journals and ephemera I have created and see if people want to buy it. These papers are perfect for the folios that I am making. Hope you are well! See you in the mailbox :D
