About Me

Hello there!

Thanks for coming to my profile! As of now, I have been working on collecting more postcards. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

I Pledge to Rate

I LOVE making and sending mail and also swapping mail! I really enjoy making small vintage style "Junk Journals" ! Collect all sorts of small papers, interesting things, postcards.

I live in a small town, in West Michigan. About 10 minutes away from Lake Michigan and Grand Haven. Very beautiful beaches and fun in the summer.

I work as a CNA (Certified Nurse Aide) in a very small rehabilitation and nursing center. I help elderly people and also people recovering from surgery or injury. I love to share things I get in the mail with them.

I am almost 30 and a mom of 3.

Making and sending the mail is just as fun as getting it!



I love homemade cards as long as they are well made. Will not mind if you decide to send a homemade over a store bought.

I join a lot of postcard swaps to collect them for me and to share with others!

I save every postcard I get and put it in an album

Thank you!
