THINGS ABOUT ME: Hello! I live in Michigan and love it, even the winters.
MUSIC: Classical, New Age, and Easy Listening, but I listen to all types.
BOOKS: I read about 85 books a year, mostly series mysteries such as Anne Perry’s Victorian mysteries, Peter Robinson, J. D. Robb, and many British detective series. My favorite recent book was The Light Between Oceans by M. L. Stedman.
MOVIES: Happy endings like Gifted, McFarland USA, Rudy, Letters to Juliette, and dark suspenseful thrillers like Suburbia, Sanctum, and Perfect Getaway.
TELEVISION: I rarely watch TV, but occasionally watch a series such as Downton Abbey or The Crown. My favorite older TV series were King of Queens and Cold Case.
CRAFTS: Quilting (I’m currently working on a project making blankets and quilts for homeless vets, foster kids and pregnancy resource centers), crocheting dishcloths, making my own body and home care products with essential oils....painting with acrylics (abstracts or just playing with color)...making greeting cards. I also dabble in photography and am finally taking a class.
I am a retired preschool teacher (two-year-olds) and still sub on occasion. I am married to a retired professor and we love going on road trips. In past summers we took Route 66 to California, toured Yosemite NP and all the major National parks out west. This is a good way to collect postcards!
I love to make vintage-style ATCs. I often have a theme with a little twist of eyebrow-raising innuendo. I’m up for private ATC swaps of that nature.
POSTCARD LIKES: Where you live.....Anything strange or unusual...Out-of-the ordinary places, especially small town or village where you live...reproduction vintage especially ones with LARGE LETTER cities, ....day or night city skylines. Tourist type, especially if they are of uncommon places. Unusual animals are fun to receive.
I prefer not handmade unless swap is specifically for homemade PCs. I will do private swaps for handmade postcards.
Real photo please, if possible, instead of drawings or cartoons.
I would like my postcards NAKED unless the swap requires an envelope.
I almost always give hearts because I truly appreciate the effort that goes into a swap. I spend time and effort on every swap I send, even postcards and try to make it something you will enjoy or will make you smile.
I swap mostly postcards. Please know that I respect what you have sent and consider it important that you know it has been received. I rate on the day I receive it.
I’m puzzled by silent 5s and silent hearts. When you click on Rate Your Partner it says to leave a comment.
I like nice Zazzle and printed postcards too. I’m asking that you please write more than one sentence. Tell me where you got your postcard. Why you like it. What you are doing today. About your family. Give me a reason to give a heart.
COLORS: Love colors and colorful things. Blacks and grays are cool also. Pale pink will make me super happy.
GENERAL THEMES I LOVE: squirrels...sloths...goats...chickens...gnomes... flowers...birds...benches...chairs...windows...doors, lighthouses...landscapes.
TEAS: Any kind or brand. A swapper sent me Peach Pie tea which was awesome, and I haven’t been able to find it. English Breakfast is also a favorite. I’ll try any tea.
LITTLE THINGS: Seasonal or holiday themes (any time of year). Seasonal stickers, unused postcards, notecards, sheets of list pads are great. I really don’t need little bits of paper.
I will never flake and I rate as soon as I receive your mail. I use a spreadsheet to keep everything straight. It’s always possible to overlook something, so please contact me if something is not right.
My mail is often picked up as late as 7:30 so the postmark on my mail date may show the following day. Personally I really don’t bother searching for a mail date, I’m just so happy to get some mail.
Thank all of you great swappers for your nice comments and hearts. You make my day!
