About Me

I would like to introduce myself. I am a Mom, sister, daughter, friend and a retired elementary teacher. I had penpals since I was a child but now have switched to postcarding as an adult for the last 7 years or so. I enjoy choosing the perfect card for my recipient and hoping they love the stamps I put on the card too. I have lots to cards to choose from including: view, nonview, zazzle, postcard books and much more. I am not into handmade cards but I appreciate their beauty. I really LOVE view cards as this is my way to see your world. In particular lighthouses, stadiums, whales, zoos, amusement parks, Keep Calm, Harry Potter, Meetups, and Cruise Ships are my favs. I have a collection of postcards that is well over 2000. I organize it mostly by country and/or theme. My goal is to scan and have an online album but I find I don't have the time to do that. For now I will enjoy the cards and look at them in their boxes. In my free time I like to go for walks, go swimming, read fiction and non-fiction books, watch tv and of course postcarding. I also like to collect pencils from different countries. Just basic pencils. I have some from vacations I have gone on and love using them. I hope to get to join lots of swaps as I start to get rated, and please be honest and tell me how I can improve as a member. Postcards I collect: lighthouses Harry Potter stadiums food Olympics Disney amusement parks (I prefer real Disney and not illustrations) Disney during the holidays Favourite Disney characters: princesses, goofy, pluto, mickey, Minnie (I prefer real Disney not illustration) amusement parks Peanuts characters Christmas markets Holland lop rabbits (I have a pet one)

Comment: Thank you for the pretty post card. Iowa has a lot of covered bridges too but nothing like this. I'd love to see that one. The partner I sent my post card to was from Canada and then the post card I received was also from Canada. Swap bot can be so much fun.
Response: Glad you liked it! What are those chances? You should buy a lotto ticket! Although I bought a 3 dollar one yesterday and didn't win, hah.

Comment: Well, the good news is that your postcard made it to me because 1/2 of it was missing! And the 1/2 that made it was damaged. Lol! I don't know what happened but I bet if the postcard could talk it would have an interesting tale to tell! The 1/2 that arrived is pretty though! The color on the orchids is gorgeous!
Response: Oh no! I don't think I put any 3D stickers to cause a problem. Probably Mother Nature saying-it is not time for flowers yet. Lol. Thx for the heart!

Lovely Swappers-R-Us May Wishes -- Thanks so much for the kool-aid packets and the sticker sheet. My grand-daughter will love the stickers and now that we are into hot weather the kool-aid is very much appreciated.

Thank you for the RAS postcard you sent! How kind of you! The postcard is neat and a nice addition to my collection. I participate in Postcrossing too, but I've never been to a meet up.

I have resent a new envelope for you. Let me know when it arrives. Hopefully intact this time.

I will let you in my PC swap, but in future swaps a lot of hosts will need to see a better filled out profile so that your future partners are able to customize swaps more for you. I've sent you an invite to Newbie Helpers and there are some links there that may help. xoโ™ฅ
