About Me

I live in the state of West Virginia which is a whole different state than Virginia! For some reason many people don't realize this and it makes me shake my head! I spent most of my life in Michigan (44 years!) so I often travel through Ohio to visit family and friends back home. I am married with two young adult children - and love two fun rescue dogs, Toby and Molly.

Things I like to get in swaps - unwritten postcards, US mint postage stamps, bookmarks, washi tape, post it type notes, blank note cards, wax melts, coffee K-cups, socks (fun pattern), plastic credit card type cards with nothing on them (hotel key cards, Starbuck gift cards, any gift cards), playing card with any fun pattern on the back, fun shaped metal paper clips/bookmarks, bag clips, crochet hooks (always use a J/6), dog treats and small adult jigsaw puzzles, magnets, homemade fun envelopes.


I am currently interested in swapping I Spy type fabric (5 X 5). If anyone has a scrap this size and want to throw it in any other swap, I would be SOOOOO happy!

I joined here to swap postcards! I like both written and unwritten. IF you are interested in doing a swap of cards (unwritten) just to change up your collection, let me know. I have a ton of touristy cards I can swap for whatever you got that you think I may like.

I like both touristy and non touristy cards. ESPECIALLY would love postcards with these themes - Yarn, crochet (good luck!)

Coffee, fun coffee houses

Jigsaw puzzles

Postage stamps

Michigan colleges & universities

Baseball stadiums, anything baseball

Carmel California

Art - all kinds

Roadside attractions

Actors, musicians, bands

History U.S





barns, country life

Norman Rockwell type

Scotland, kilts







PLEASE Do NOT send small, vintage or old type postcards. I don't care for them. I just pass them on or throw them away. Not my thing.

Don't know what to write? I love quotes, book recommendations, what was the last movie you saw? How would you spend an ideal day? What one person (dead of alive) would you like to have lunch with? Podcast recommendation?

I have also really started collecting playing cards with fun themes. I have been starting to swap them and it is crazy fun. Have any extras? Send them on to me, I'd love them. I would love to swap used postage stamps (which I save but don't do anything with) for playing cards or unused nice postcards. Reach out to me if you are interested in setting up something like that.

I collect U.S. stamps, US postcards, salt and pepper shakers, Starbuck gift cards and state coffee mugs, antique coffee grinders, bookmarks and magnets.

Not fond of

Cats, Sci fi (except Star Wars), fairies, vampires, goth, fantasy, super heroes, kawaii, violence, unicorns, anima, tattoos, religious themes, tractors, cars, body building, vintage small type.

Favorite Crafts

I have done many crafts in my day -scrapbooking, crochet, beading, card stamping, rag wreaths and others. I have so many supplies that I could open my own store. But I crochet the most lately.

I do like fun stickers - no kiddie cute please unless it's Peanuts! U.S. mint postage stamps - love stamps of all kinds, Christmas gift tags, bookmarks, 'list' type paper, blank address stickers, dog treats, coffee, magnets, candle melts (Scentsy and all other kinds), handmade soaps, note cards, coffee mugs and did I mention postcards? Ha

Contact me

I look forward to swapping and please feel free to contact me with any questions or issues. Communication is an easy way to resolve confusion or let someone know concerns and give positive feedback. I welcome contact with you all.

I just rated you, but wanted to add. Thank you for the cool women's suffrage stamp. I noticed it, and I really liked it!

Thank you for the Seneca Rocks Post card for the "unassigned" p/c roulette. I actually visited Sececa rocks and caverns back in 1991. Was so beautiful then and I am sure, still is. You brought back some great memories with your card :-) .
