Notecards And Postcard Swaps (NAPS)

About Me

9/30/2018 ACK! I was going through group members for the group I host title Notecards and postcard swaps ....I stepped away to for a quick sec and came back to my cat sitting on the screen!! :( I think she may have deleted a few from the group....if she wasn't in such a rare snuggle mood I would be upset with her ....anyway, please rejoin

Hi, My name is Sheli - I've lived in Alaska most all my life. My husband and I own and work in our little store called Alaska Transfers & Design in Fairbanks and live in the next town over named North Pole - and yes there is a Santa Claus house! Even reindeer! Some of the town is decorated year round and we have candy cane street lights.

north pole

Besides our little store which we make custom tshirts, mugs, coffee cups and such Plus antiques, novelties and Alaska souvenirs, we have an online webpage called Way Up In Alaska (link is at top of profile) and a HUGE eBay store with over 11,000 items


We send and receive all of our mail from our store in Fairbanks since it's more secure than our roadside mailbox out in North Pole.

We enjoy spending the summers traveling in state as well as traveling through Canada on our way to visit the lower 48 to go antiquing and just seeing the sights.

Have one daughter who is grown up and out living life in New Jersey :)

For pets we have 3 very spoiled cats who enjoy watching the many cool animals that visit our backyard - We are lucky that the area area we live is all left wild by the other home-owners and hopefully will stay that way, we enjoy the wildlife viewing. This summer we've had a boom year of bunnies! So the owls have been hanging around looking for a quick meal! Have had a few moose that came by for little visits and signs that possibly a fox or lynx was coming through too.

Favorite Books

Vintage cookbooks - have a few hundred in my library so far

crafting books - I have been collecting workbasket magazines. The older coats & clark ones are another line I collect and general crafting magazines too. The ads in the older books are great!

For book reading, Love the Miss Peregrine's home for peculiar children series. Over the summer while we were on our trip, I read The Help ( I loved the movie and love the book even more!)

Favorite Movies

Don't really have a favorite genre, hard to pick a favorite movie, but Elf is always funny! :) So is National Lampoon Christmas Vacation and A Christmas Story ( I do really love Christmas movie maybe it's because I live in North Pole Alaska ahaha!! ) Love a good mystery, documentary, or action filled movie - and old movies are great to watch too :) Horror is my good ol' standby when I can't find a movie I want to watch

Favorite Television

We did the big cut the cord move and went and bought a Roku...TV is soooo much better !! :) I love watching older BBC shows - have re-watched the whole Call the Midwife series - Love it! Now we've been skimming through youtube channel watching walk throughs of RV's looking for our next one :)

Favorite Crafts

Crochet is my favorite! I do other misc crafts, but crochet is my fav! Oh unless cooking is still considered a craft :) Love cooking, don't get to do much fancy stuff since it's just us, but if I find a fun recipe that I want to try out from my cookbook collection, I give it a whirl!

Swap preferences

I have no real preferences when it comes to swapping - but some info about me to help you make a choice - if those other categories didn't help out here is a bit more :)

I am not religious in the slightest

I love animals (cats especially)

Love vintage cookbooks, crafting magainzes/books, ads, recipes

enjoy old photos - i buy them randomly - no real theme to them, quirky or creepy ones are my fav though

Holidays especially Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas are my favorite

favorite scent - baking cookies, cinnamon, citrus

We travel out of Alaska often in our RV so love RV themed goodies since we spend 70 days a summer living in it.

am a coffee and tea drinker - and am not choosey on flavors, always fun to try something new :)

I do use a Keurig (use the pods and load my own) and loose ground coffee as well - have no preference on what types of drinks I receive :)

Comment: Hi Sheli! Thank you for the awesome pc and share! I am not looking forward to snow and you seem to love it! LOL! Yikes on the cold as well! LOL! So not for me! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Thanks for the state flower postcard. I like it! :o) That would be interesting to see the bunnies turn white. Do you have black squirrels?
Response: it's neat when the bunnies start turning ...some look like they have socks on because their feet turn first..but not all at once ..like they are missing a sock. Some look like they have fake ears or mustaches. I wish we had black squirrels..we just have red squirrels here. They are funny to watch - we had one that would just nap out in the open...laid out on the bird house roof taking a nap! Never seen a squirrel just nap out in the open like that. :)
Comment: Thanks for the wonderful postcard! Stay warm!
Comment: Hi again! Love this card too! So so cute! Thanks so much :) :)

Comment: I love the PC you sent! Polar bears are too cute. I'd love to pet one but I'm pretty sure they wouldn't like it!

Hi Sheli! Thanks so much for the awesomeness!! Love the postcard you sent. Your town would be fun 24/7 all 365 days of the year. Who doesn't love Santa, candy canes and snow plus mountains. Answering children's letters would be so cool.
Take care up at the North Pole & stay warm, Judy

candy cane street light and christmas tree on the ceiling are cool!
