About Me

Hi, my name is Marina.

I was born in the old Jugoslavija (Kosovo) but have lived in the Chicago area most of my adult life. I have been participating in swaps at Postcrossing for some time and really enjoy receiving postcards.

My hobby and occupation is dressmaker. I'm always shopping for fabric and ideas at resale shops and resellers.

I will like any card you would want to send me but I do love cats, small dogs, butterflies, and birds.

Favorite Music

Current playlist:

1) Nikolija - Malo 2) Taylor Swift - Style 3) Chainsmokers & Coldplay - Something Just Like this 4) Kate Ryan - Voyage Voyage 5) Coldplay - Clocks 6) Charlie Puth - One Call Away 7) Ed Sheeran - Shape of You 8) Peter Fox - Schuttel Deinen Speck 9) Daughtry - Home

Favorite quotes

"Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind." -Albert Einstein


"...the moral test of government is how that government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; those who are in the shadows of life; the sick, the needy and the handicapped. " ~ Last Speech of Hubert H. Humphrey

"You can safely assume that you've created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do." - Ann Lammont

"Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society." Mark Twain

"A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine." Thomas Jefferson

Comment: Thank you for all the great choices! And for the extra! The Shinjuku area in Tokyo has more buildings now. It is really neat to see this “before” scene - from before my first trip there! Also love the deer glow in the dark, fall leaves, lion and recipe! That sculpture is very unique!! If I can figure out where it is I’ll let you know!!! Thank you for sending it in a fun dog themed envelope!!! Hope you have a nice day : )

I received the very beautiful photo album today. I can't thank you enough for being so kind and keeping on top of writing to me and angeling the swap. I love all the pictures and the album itself is so pretty.

P.S. thanks also for the Bat stamp (my fave!) and the old 3c stamps you used on the Mix It Up PC & Stamps envelope!
