About Me

My name is Christine. I am a 40something, married, mom of one son who isn't so little anymore. He is starting his senior year of high school. We share our home with a black cat and a black pug.

I used to do swaps on Craftster and a few on here years ago but didn't have so much time as my son was growing up. With covid and being home more my family has been doing Postcrossing to have fun and connect with others from home. I am loving that so much it made me get on here and see if it was still active. So glad it is!

My favorite holiday is Halloween!!! I like all colors but yellow and orange are my least favorite (except at Halloween).

Favorite Crafts

I love to scrapbook, embroider, sewing, quilting, and making costumes. I recently made 2 quilts and way to many masks!

Postcards

Some ideas for postcards if you don't know what to send or if the swap isn't specific. I would love to hear about your hobbies, interests, home, books you're reading, holiday traditions, your favorite play or musical, or what you like best about where you live, what makes you happy, or anything you want to share! I prefer my postcards written and stamped.

I would love to hear about or see postcards of:

  • Art
  • Views and photos of the city you live in
  • Landscapes
  • Monuments or statues from your hometown
  • Black and white, retro, or vintage postcards
  • Coffee and cafes
  • Vintage comics
  • Gnomes
  • Greetings From series
  • Aurora Borealis and all natural phenomena
  • Día/noche de los muertos,Halloween,St. Patrick's Day etc.
  • Animals
  • Book Related (Covers, people reading, etc)
  • Quotes
  • Disney
  • Kawaii

Almost anything is really great the only thing I really don't want are religious cards. I'm not too picky or easily offended.

Comment: Are they cake cookies? They look too...wide...to be just plain old cookies! Thanks for the card!
Response: They are more like cake. I think they are a lot like petit fours but with chocolate instead of iced.

Comment: I personally wonder what goes through the mind of a person that creates cards like these! I find them fun. I have a book of weird postcards. I did not know what was in the pack when I bought them. I got them and did not know what I was going to do with them. Now they have a purpose! Maddashin
Response: I wonder the same thing, but I do get a kick out of them :)

Response: It is the same Good Omens. I haven't watched the show so I'm not sure how they compare. I need to watch it. Happy reading!

Comment: Thank you!!! I am missing shows so, so much. I didn't realize how much of my identity centered around shows until this pandemic hit lol. The Aquabats Christmas show was great - I've been watching as many of the livestreams as I can. It's not the same as actually being at a show but at least it's something. There was a skafest I was supposed to go to last June and since we couldn't have the festival, they did a livestream with all sorts of ska bands...I think that was probably my favorite of the livestreams. I've also been enjoying some of the quarantine videos the bands I like have put out (check out the video for Most of All by the Backyard Superheroes) but I will be so happy when this pandemic is over and everyone can gather in person to watch live music once again :)
Response: Most of All by the Backyard Superheroes is awesome! I had not heard it so thanks for the recommendation. You are right, the online stuff is fun but not the same. It will be so nice when it is safe to do things again!
