JUST ME

Wow here we are in August already. Things haven't changed much. Mandatory mask wearing, social distancing and much more. Now there is so much ups and downs about returning to school. Here in our county it has gone from choosing in school, e-learning or visual learning. Then they decided all schools would remain closed until the 28th of Sept. After much protest from parents it is now back to the three choices. The poor kids don't know what is going on. Hope things are better where you are.

NEWEST UPDATE APRIL 4, 2020----I hope all of you all over the world are staying healthy and staying safe during this Corona virus pandemic. Here in Indiana we are on a stay at home quarantine until at least April 30th. The schools have all closed for the rest of the school season That is 2 1/2 months early.

UPDATE---JANUARY 1, 2020 Happy New Year Everyone. I hope this will be a year of great blessings for all of you. I am doing much better. Since my episode with the side effects of medication I have been on a "health kick". I am now down to only three pills a day from 17! Yes, 17 but lots of them were over the counter--fish oil, cinnamon, calcium, turmeric, etc. I am eating healthier and have lost 32 lbs. And, no I am not looking for those lost pounds! They can stay lost. Since my change in diet, etc. my doctor has taken me off of most of my prescribed meds and I feel so much better.

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, art 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 will be celebrating our 53rd anniversary on March 26. We four children. They are all married and they have given us 10 wonderful grand children ranging from five years to 29 years old. We had our first great grandchild as of March 13, 2018. Levi is so precious! 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. It seems to be a lost art with the younger generation. What better way to brighten someones day then to go to the mailbox and find a written letter! I am trying to get my grand daughters into writing letters, notes and sending thank you cards. I even have two of them now doing postcards. Emma even has entered them as her 4-H project the past three years. This last year she won grand champion with her exhibit. I was so proud of her. If anyone would like to send her a postcard for her collection message me and I will give you her name and address. I send many cards as part of our church card ministry. I keep a journal and have for many years.

POSTCARD UPDATE FEBRUARY 2020 I like my postcards to be written on and touristy. For swaps that call for them to be blank and in an envelope I do not mind getting non tourist that way I have some for swapping when a swap asks for non tourist.

A Few of My Favorite Things

I love teddy bears, heart things, stationery, note cards, address labels and recipe cards. These are the cards you write your recipe on. I've had many think this means recipe postcards. 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, 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 am also collecting unusual town/city names--Santa Claus, In. Bird-in-Hand, Pa. etc. I also have a lot of Rt 66 cards. I would love any girl scout postcards. I have now started collecting Coke and Santa 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 July 2, 2018.

Update for postcards--- My newest collection is Coke, Santa, Provinces of Canada with the name of the Province on the card 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.

POSTCARD UPDATE FEBRUARY 2020 I like my postcards to be written on and touristy. For swaps that call for them to be blank and in an envelope I do not mind getting non tourist that way I have some for swapping when a swap asks for non tourist.

Thanks for any help with these!
