About Me

Introducing Myself

My name is Cathy, and I live in Alabama with my husband of 41 years. We have 2 adult daughters, 1 in Colorado and 1 in Tennessee. I am retired from a local school system.

I have a slight (major) obsession with vintage stamps. I try to include them on every swap I send.

A Note about my Swaps

In order to be able to participate in a lot of swaps during holidays, I have to prepare my swaps ahead of time. Do I sometimes duplicate my enclosures? Yep. Do I at times duplicate cards (Christmas, Halloween, etc)? Yep. But I promise that I am putting thought into every one, and I hope you enjoy them.

If the card I use has glitter, I will put a note on the back flap of the envelope that if you want a replacement with no glitter, just message me and I will get a replacement in the mail ASAP. No worries.

AND if you receive duplicate enclosures from me and want to pass them along in another swap, I will consider that a compliment!

Flaking on Swaps

I will never flake on a swap. I am very prompt, will always mail the day I receive partner addresses, and will register the day I receive a swap. If you ever have a question or a concern, PLEASE message me. I am more than happy to re-send. In the event that I have a circumstance that would prevent me from mailing swaps out immediately, I will always message you and let you know.

My Interests

I have been a collector of postcards most of my life. It started when we would travel on vacation, and I would take the free postcards at the little motels we would visit on our travels. I still have tons of them!

I am also a major collector and user of vintage stamps. I use them on everything. I love the old stamps. I probably have more than I will ever be able to use, but that is okay! No apologies here!

Avid Postcrosser

I am an AVID participant in Postcrossing (cflathem). I keep my maximum number of postcards in the mail at all times. It has been so much fun!!

Favorites

I do have a list of โ€œfavorite thingsโ€ when it comes to postcards.

Lighthouses, Trains, Christmas ANYTHING, Birds, Brightly colored flowers, Lantern Press postcards, โ€œGreetings fromโ€ postcards, State maps, Large letter state and city cards

I am really getting into washi tape. I enjoy using it everywhere I can.

Dislikes

If I had to list some โ€œdislikesโ€, they would be:

No handmade cards please, they are just not my thing. No free or ad cards, No food items, No political items

But frankly, I would love to see anything else people want to share. I am always interested in hearing about other people and the things they love.

A Final Note

I miss civility and kindness. We seem to be lacking in that area these days. I love sharing my love of snail mail, crafts, creativity. We ALL have something to contribute to this world. Everyone has a talent. My hope is that we always share fun things with one another.
