please do not send me any touristy postcards.... prefer postcards unwritten and in an envelope if that is an option in swap. I really hoped to get a Leonard Cohen stamp from one of my Canadian partners..and this morning I got my first one!

About Me

I live by the ocean and enjoy walking to my nearest village, especially on a sea misty morning. I enjoy participating in handmade postcard swaps, (365 postcards completed in 2018 -Dec 24th - hooray!!) I made them in batches-and am doing it again this year- happy to say I am keeping up with the plan... I also do art journal page swaps.

I take part in the .'Postcards of Kindness.' project, I love steam punk, vintage, scripts in other languages, tigers, coffee and swapping ephemera . I really appreciate all the members who host swaps...where would we be without them?

Favorite Television

I liked the Poldark series and live in Poldark country. Winston Graham wrote the Poldark series when he lived in my vilIage. I like Murdoch Mysteries and Dancing on Ice which is on again now. Loved Big Bang Theory and Young Sheldon as well as Scorpion. .... loved The Great British Sewing Bee and currently sulking as Downton Abbey re-run is over ... as is the Great British Bake Off . Strictly Come Dancing is also a fave..but have to wait until the autumn

Favorite Crafts

I participate in regular art journal page swaps, I'm now more confident with textured paste, and working with stencils...and enjoy creating ATC's..recently in an alphabet swap...finally made XYZ --it went well.. The alphabet postcard swap continues again from the beginning..

Comment: Very clever to list some of the tools and implements of our craft in the list of likes! I can 100% agree with liking your A-G, J, P, and R-X. But I have to look up whatever hardboard, krink markers, and the oval are all about!!! Thanks for sharing 😉

Comment: Very pretty Valentine PC. Just in time for Valentine’s Day! Thank you for being my “across the pond” partner.
Response: so glad it arrived in time. Happy Valentine's Day.
Comment: Thanks for the bold and bright page!
Comment: Thank you for sharing your thoughtful postcard art! Being a senders-choice swap you certainly did NOT have to make something friendly to me and my family needs. However, I am SO VERY GRATEFUL that you did! Thank you for reading that part of my profile and being considerate of my wishes! I hope that my request didn’t squelch your creativity by much...but, please know that I LOVE the hearts and the colors you selected!!! This is a great DIY PC! 🤩

Comment: FOLLOW UP: Just had to change the rating to include a <3 (heart). Zannie you are so wonderful to send me an RAK Dance PC in an envie to make up for the first one that was chewed up badly by the p.o. We never talked about a re-send, and I never expected you to send one. I gave you a 5 for the first one. But you did this all on your own! It was wonderful to go to my mailbox and find a true RAK waiting for me. So, I am adding a Heart to your rating for being so kind. Thank you for renewing my faith in people. You are a good-hearted, charitable, and considerate person. :-) <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 Thank you for the PC. You have a wonderful background in dance! I took ballet and tap when I was 5, and modern dance when I was about 10. Didn't stick with either one... but I love to watch the ballet!
Response: thank you for the heart..glad your faith is renewed x
Comment: Hi. Thanks for your postcard. I also like the illustrations in the book too. :)
Poeprincess rated for PA: Winter Stuff on Dec 20, 2019
Comment: Oh, yes, this is very wintry! Like your use of texture & images. Snow isn’t all that prevalent here, either—what falls is gone in a couple of days due to the surrounding salt water. Thanks for being my partner.

Comment: I just found this pc in a stack of papers on our piano bench (along with some others). I'm so sorry my lack of cleaning led to your late rating! I love the women scientist cards.

oops - that comment was for a different person. [insert embarrassed face emoji or gif :^]

More commentary arising from the Tabasco Hostel postcard: White Sands is one of the my favorite places! But sadly most of my relatives have left New Mexico so I won't have easy excuses to visit any more. And I'd never actually been to Las Vegas NM (unless I was super young and don't remember) although I had a roommate from there at a short workshop I attended in high school.

I've been to Windsor once as a tourist when we first moved to Michigan (my first time to Canada!) and I've run along the riverfront during the Detroit International Half Marathon. The crowds in Windsor are very supportive.

Thanks for the fun chatty postcard!

Thank you so much for the beautiful PC. I loved all the bunny stamps and info about the chihuahua gathering! Your card made my day :)
