Hello, I am Sandy from Indiana. I love postcards and have collected them since I was a child. I love receiving postcards and reading what others have to say. It's my way of traveling around this big wonderful world we have. I love sending postcards to others that enjoy them. As for what kind of postcards I like, I prefer the tourist type. You know, the ones that show your home town; scenery, buildings, etc. I really don't like funny, nude, b & w, ad cards or home made. I DO NOT CARE FOR ZAZZLE or HOME MADE POSTCARDS.

The Personal Stuff

I've lived in the same Hoosier town all of my life. My husband and I just celebrated our 50th anniversary on March 26, 2017. We four children. They are all married and they have given us 10 wonderful grand children ranging from four years to 28 years old. I am retired and enjoy babysitting for the younger grand children.

Odds and Ends

I love all holidays. I love to make home made gifts for birthdays and Christmas. I love to bake and make candy. I love to write. I send many cards as part of our church card ministry. I keep a journal and have for many years.

A Few of My Favorite Things

I love teddy bears, heart things, stationery, note cards, address labels and recipe cards. I have over 150 recipe cards in my collection of recipe cards. I collect cookie cutters. At one time I collected teddy bears and things that are heart shaped. My favorite color is lavender. My favorite flowers are daisy, lilac and jonquil. My favorite food is anything that doesn't eat me first! I love the smell of rain and anything freshly baked. I love caramel, licorice, anise and peppermint.

Not My Cup of Tea

I don't like candles, sports, insects, mice, snakes, perfume or strong smells, or crude and vulgar items. I do not drink tea or coffee. I do not like anything that is spearmint.

Favorite Music

I love the good old fashion Rock-n-Roll music from the 50's and 60's. I listen to country and Christian music. And of course I listen to lots of kids songs with the small grand children.

Favorite Movies

I enjoy mystery movies. I seem to watch a lot of Disney movies. Guess all of those grand kids have influenced me. I love to watch movies on the Hallmark, Up and Life channels.

Favorite Television

I watch a lot of Food Network shows. I love to try the recipes they make on the shows. I also watch Reba, Heartland, Cedar Cove, The Good Witch and lots of Disney. Seems like when I find a good show then it goes off and I need to search for something else to watch.

Crafty Me

I love to scrapbook. I make a scrapbook for each of my six grandchildren every year for Christmas. Four of my grandchildren live in Florida so I don't see them very often and therefore don't get a chance to take pictures of them like I do the other ones that live close to me. I also like to sew and quilt. I have made all of the grandchildren a patchwork quilt. I used to crochet. I inherited crochet books from the early 1900's from my grandmother and made some doilies from the patterns in them. I've done a little card making but it's not my favorite thing to do.

Bits and Pieces

After my mother died I wrote a cookbook for family members. Not only did the book have recipes but it was written in story form---telling the story behind the recipes. I also wrote an autobiography and gave it to each of my children and some of my cousins for a Christmas gift several years ago. I love genealogy and have traced my family back to the 1700's. I am a lifetime member of Girl Scouts of America. I was a leader for 34 years. I love keeping in contact with girls from my troops and seeing what wonderful young ladies they have become.
At this time my wish list is: stationery, note cards, 3x5 decorated recipe cards, any scrapbook paper, stickers for scrap booking, die cuts for scrap booking, sticky notes and postcards.

I would love to add more Elvis Presley and the Royal Family to my collection. I have started collecting montage type postcards and would like to complete having one of each state. I have started collecting train postcards. I am also collecting unusual town/city names--Santa Claus, In. Bird-in-Hand, Pa. etc. I would love any girl scout postcards.

I do not collect stamps but love the different stamps that come on my mail. I save them and pass them in some of my swaps if I know the person I"m swapping with collects them.

UPDATE AS OF October 7, 2017

Update for postcards--- My newest collection is large letter State names and the large Love state cards. I have just started collecting Roadside Attractions---you know, the ones that are like the largest ball of yarn, largest basket, rocking chair, etc. Since joining Swap Bot I have found so many types of postcards for collecting. Some don't interest me but I have added to collecting some that are not the typical tourist cards. I now have over 11500 cards.

Thanks for any help with these!
