About Me

Update 08-2018 - Postmarks - I rarely look at those and most often cannot see them on postcards. I am interested in sending on time and getting rated when the recipient receives the swap. I do check off each swap when rated and when I rate what I receive. I try to keep records for what I sent so I do not duplicate and if needed to resend a swap.

I have found many swaps to be fun, challenging and rewarding. Thank you to all those participating. You are creating a fun experience.

I always rate, usually the day I receive a swap. I hope others treat swaps received from me the same way. I usually mail very soon after partners are assigned, so if you haven't received the swap from me, PM me, I'll resend. In US should be 2 weeks delivery and 3-4 weeks for international swaps.

I have been collecting whales for over 40 years, one day I will see one in real life. We tried once but rain for three days didn't allow the day trip. I have traveled all the states except Alaska. Sewing is my passion for costumes for grandchildren or machine embroidery for fun and sometimes for pay. Joann Fabrics, Michael's and Hobby Lobby are my kind of toy store!

Favorite Crafts

Love to sew and do machine embroidery. I have a granddaughter with very specific ideas for costumes and decorating her clothing. She gives me challenges for sewing projects.

I enjoy new techniques in my sewing and love to make the Free Standing Lace Angels to give to everyone who visits. Would be happy to send those out in swap trades. I am trying to do some quilting or at least table runners. Missouri Quilts on Youtube is a great place to get tutorials.

I learned to make Microwave Fabric Bowls and went nuts making over 200 sets of them so far. I use them instead of flat pot holders.

Counted Cross stitch is also a passion

Favorite Places to visit

I absolutely love to visit Mt Rushmore. Since 1963 it is the most visited spot ever for me and I find something new each time. One time my dog even went with me on my trips from Illinois to Montana. I have over 200 different postcards from that tourist place and welcome more.

2017 - Labor Day weekend, my granddaughter and I went to see my men with a focus to find the three tunnels that have the Mt Rushmore framed view. We found them and the three pig-tail bridges. I had thought there were only one of each. Those places are now on video and digital pictures.

I would go back to Europe in a heartbeat and revisit Castles and distant relatives in Switzerland.

New England historical sites are very much a fascination to me. The Whaling Museum is also on my bucket list.

Postcards

Touristy are my Most Favorite!

I have been collecting post cards for years buying those instead of other souvenirs. I collect postcards from every place I visit. I put the date and who was with me on the back. I have boxes of them filed by states, countries and other themes. They can capture pictures that my camera cannot. I like city views, landmarks, country scenes, day and night themes, maps (state or country) and most any interesting pictures. I like the colorful pictures of places, map cards and information ones of places as well. I will trade animals or flowers if that is what is required in the swap. I would prefer touristy cards from places to see over the artsy or animal pictures with the exception for Whales - I collect all kinds of Whales. Postcard swaps with touristy or specific theme, but not animal or flowers. I like the places visited to inspire me to add to my bucket list.

I have Colorado cards galore, send me a different state card, please.

Wishlist - State Maps-- (I have a full set from POSTCARD FAIR.COM) - ones I could use more are from AR,KY,LA,MD,NV,ND,OH,WV

Wishlist - State Capitol Building - AK,CT,DE,FL,GA,HI,IN,MD,MA,MI,NM,NC,OH,OK,PA,SC,VT

Likes/dislikes/confused

Likes --
Butterflies, Civil War/Revolutionary War, Counted Cross Stitch, Dachshunds, Dragonflies, Embroidery, Ladybugs, Mount Rushmore, Owls, Patriotic themes, Pine cones, Scooby Doo, Sewing notions, Snowmen, Statue of Liberty, Trains, US Presidents and Whales,

Postcards --- Castles, City views, Covered Bridges, Historical sites/ or Historical people, Lighthouses, Map or map shape cards, PCs with cutouts, Hold up cards, Vintage touristy, Pictorial Map, State Cards, Touristy of city state or country, Famous Places,

Dislikes or not into-- Tea or cocoa, rather have my Boyer's coffee made in Denver.
Make-up not allergic - just not into it, Color Orange, but I am trying (pumpkins are cute)

Sad to say dislikes or disappointments are the flakers and non-raters. I am getting my share.

Whatever you send I am sure I will like it, have a use for it, re-gift, or my granddaughter will do something creative with it.

Another conundrum - my Name is Frieda. Lately I get a lot of Freida, maybe I should go back to B.F., but then some write that they want a first name. (i before e except after c)

I am confused when someone has not sent the swap and when I ask about it, the reply is to send them my address. Addresses are attached to the swap, why would I need to send my address?

If you do receive a swap from me, would you be so kind as to rate so that I know you received it.

Thank you

Comment: Thank you for the awesome postcard, I've never been on a Trolley, but the last time I went to Cali I went on a tour on one of those duck buses that goes from land to water. I remember seeing the Lake House when it came out, but I don't remember what it was about so I'll have to re-watch it. Have a great day!
Response: Very Welcome, thank you for rating so quickly.

Comment: Rocky Mountain National Park is one of my favorite places to go. I live about an hour away and love to hike there. I have been there when the elk are bugling. It is amazing to both watch and hear. Thanks!
Response: Very welcome. I felt bad sending a Colorado to you. Have sent another from a vacation.
