Update July 15 2019: I just created my first group! I'm excited and nervous. :)
Theme: A DIY group. Turn your snapshot photos into postcards, ATCs, notecards, zines, and more. Type: Arts and Crafts
If you haven't received a card within a month of my send date, please let me know.
I like staying creative in small ways and this site provides a lot of opportunities. I like handcrafted one-of-a-kind things.
I love making my own postcards.
Here's an example of one of my handcarved blocks postcards.
Cut n Paste postcards are one of my favourite style of postcards. They are fun to make and receive. I like rummaging through magazines for images that will make a great postcard. Look over on the right, under "Currently Hosting" I've usually got one CnP on the go.
Borrowing from NRGordon's description, I like making postcards from found images. I find they are more interesting, and more personal. If you like making postcards, definitely send me one if you are my partner in a swap. Let me know how you made it and tell me something about the image you picked (why you picked it, what you like about it).
Things I find interesting:
To all those people who join my swaps and rate promptly and with a nice note...

Comedians (and their TV shows):
Current TV Shows:
I'm still a fan of Saturday Night Live. I've watched every season. Including the years they hadn't invented VCRs yet and I had to stay up well past my bedtime to watch.
What We Do in the Shadows. I don't know anyone who doesn't love this movie. There's a TV series out now on the FX channel. Hilarious. These are classic Romanian Victorian vampires living in modern times.
Kim's Convenience (Toronto) Immigrant Korean family run a variety store near Kensington Market in Toronto. Funny. Wonderful characters.
Schitt's Creek I've grown to really like the "Green Acres" style fish-out-of-water storyline. They film in Orangeville and Goodwood, Ontario (I've visited both locations - my friends who like the show are jealous :D ). I've always loved the SCTV comedians. It's great to see Catherine OHara and Eugene Levy working together.
Take-Out Food: Asian especially Thai and Indian.
Drink: Bubble tea, coffee, club soda with fruit juice, the tea lattes at Starbucks
