About Me

I love Postcards, used and unused, vintage and new.

I am collecting Santa Barbara Postcards for a friend, so if you have any to enclose for a swap that would be amazing. (Updated 2022)

I am addicted to scrapbook paper and stationery. I use scrapbook papers for collaging and making my own envelopes.

I love vintage ephemera or anything for junk journals.

I like leather and lace, and pearls and pretty beads for embellishments.

STICKER SWAPS: I'm ok receiving holiday stickers, even if the swap says no holiday stickers allowed. I prefer Christmas and Valentines but am open to receive others as well.

I don't like childish stickers/reward stickers. There are some kid stickers that are really cute but I don't like childish ones. No princess, etc. unless it looks more grown up.

UPDATE DECEMBER 17, 2015 Because It's Christmas, I've been very generous in my ratings with the Christmas Cards Swaps. I've given hearts to every single person I received a card from whether they deserved it or not. I now wish I hadn't done that because it's not really fair to the swappers who really put forth effort to make it special. By special, I mean TAKING time to WRITE a note more than ONE SENTENCE. Extras don't mean as much to me as someone who takes time to share something about themselves, etc. or shows an interest in me. I've sent out around 200 cards this year and I do my best to make every single one special, even if I've been partnered with the same person 8 different times. That's my rant.

****UPDATE**** DECEMBER 3, 2014 After taking a few months off, I'm back. I noticed I have a 1 rating which I just saw today. I have sent the rater a private message and have addressed the issue and will be resending the item in tomorrow's mail. I will be rejoining the Adventures of the Traveling Postcard for which I have in my posession a postcard belonging to Kristina from Hungary. ***************************

I'm a Virgo. Christmas is my favorite holiday. I love baking, photography, traveling, exploring, and learning new things. Learning how to create mail art is my new obsession. I love the 1930's and 1940's glamour and style. (pin-up girls, WWII) I collect vintage postmarked postcards and piggy banks. One of my passions is photography and I am a member of a camera club. I love boots, gloves and stockings. I have an interest in astrology, numerology and anything paranormal. My favorite black and white movies are The Imitation of Life and Mr. Death Takes a Holiday. I like all kinds of music but mostly new wave from the 1980's, as well as Rock N Roll, and Country. I love Billy Idol, U2, The Cult, Jesus & The Mary Chain, Dinasour Jr, etc. George Strait, Toby Keith, and Kenny Chesney are my favorite country artists. I love the southern states. My favorite is Tennessee. It feels like home to me. I love southern cooking and southern hospitality. I am a huge animal lover, especially dogs. I hate to admit it but I do watch reality tv. I am hooked on Jerseyliscious and all the real housewives except Miami, New York and Atlanta. I still watch Perry Mason and Murder She Wrote. My favorite cop show is Criminal Minds and I also watch ID channel religiously. I like most cooking shows such as Master Chef, Top Chef, Next Food Network Star, The Great Food Truck Race. The truth is, I watch way too much TV but I like it. My celebrity crush is much younger: Eddie Cibrion, Josh Hartnett, Channing Tatum. Celebrities who push politics are a complete turn-off. Oh, did I mention that I love to journal.......writing is what I love to do. I especially love writing letters and receiving them as well. I love snail mail.

Favorite Television

Sitcoms: Big Bang Theory; The Middle; Raising Hope; The Neighbors; The Goldbergs; Anger Management; Two and a Half Men.

Dramas: Nashville; Criminal Minds; Longmier; The Glades; Drop Dead Diva; Witches of East End.

Reality TV: Long Island Medium; Jerseyliscious; Secret Princes; Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Orange County and New Jersey; Chasing Nashville; Vanderpump Rules;

I'm sure that I've forgotten many.

Favorite Movies

Dirty Dancing; My Cousin Vinny; Kindergarten Cop; True Lies; Die Hard; Pretty in Pink; Breakfast Club; Urban Cowboy; Walk The Line; The Help; Here On Earth; Peggy Sue Got Married.....

Favorite Music

I mostly listen to country music now but I love 80's new wave. The Cult, Cure; Jesus and the Mary Chain; Gene Loves Jezebel; The Plimsouls, The Smiths, The Smithereens, Echo and The Bunnymen..... you get the idea.

I also love big hair 80's. Slaughter, Warrant; Cinderella, Candlebox; Poison; Winger, Quiet Riot, Twisted Sister.

Classic Rock: Bruce Springsteen, Led Zeppelin, The Doors.....

Country: Mostly 80's and 90's. I love George Strait, Kenney Chesney; Toby Keith; Reba MacIntire; The Judds;

I also like classic country and some of the new country.

Some new alternative such as Muse, Arctic Monkeys.

Favorite Crafts

I'm not very crafty but I do love making my own envelopes and sometimes I doodle, although I'm a work in progress.

Favorite Books

I LOVE books!!!!!!! Mostly I read non-fiction and I prefer themes. Right now, I'm on a spiritual kick so most of my books are on tapping into intuition and communicating with spirits and the angels. I tend to also buy books about writing, books on sexual subjects; books on success and leadership, etc.

I like to read romance such as the books that Nicholas Sparks writes.I also like suspense and psychological thrillers. Harlen Coben is one of my faves.

True Crime: Many authors. Glenn Puit, especially.


My favorite postcards at this time are Roadside Attractions. You can see my postcrossing site for ideas on what I like. I also like motels, diners, etc. as well as route 66 and ohter touristy cards. Not much into landscapes unless there are cows or barns or some sort of life in them.

Comment: The envelope arrived today! What a great batch of stickers. I love the variety you shared. And the bonus wrapping paper samples (yay!) =) Thank you so, so much. If you host another sticker swap, count me in! ;) Also, from your note: Please take it easy and rest up! It's wonderful that they're moving fast to help get you back on track. Don't feel pressured to speed through your healing. Be patient with yourself and celebrate your progress! (My sister experienced something similar that almost took her life.) It's easy to get frustrated or bored, but I hope you can embrace the process. All the best to you!
Response: Wow, I'm surprised that it arrived so fast. I'm glad that you like the variety of stickers I sent. Thanks for your kind words regarding my accident.

Hi! Just hoping that you are still interested in participating in Adventures of the Traveling Postcard swap! If you no longer wish to continue, please message me, so I can get the postcard that you have in your possession back! I'd like to keep all of these postcards in rotation! If you do wish to continue, there is a round currently listed!

Thanks! Annie

It always depends on the motivation... I find that when I am doing healthy stuff regularly I feel so good that it keeps motivating me! But if I get out of the habit of it for awhile it seems a lot harder when I start again! But I try to do at least very small amounts of something on a daily basis. =)

Momskii on Feb 25, 2013:

since your postcard was due on a Sunday, I am mailing it today (Monday). Pls let me know if you don't get it and I will send another. Have been having trouble with the mail lately. Should have received 9 postcards already and only have 2.
