About Me

I was a dog trainer before chronic illness stopped that. I am an avid animal lover.

I am Canadian/American living in Kentucky but born and raised in Canada

I have some medical issues that result in pain problems. While I make the best effort possible to write neatly it is not always possible. When having this problem and its not a postcard I will often type my letters. I just wanted to warn people

I love learning about other cultures and seeing pictures (thus the postcard fascination) and items from other lands.

I collect postcards. Normally I can be found on Reddit, FB or Postcrossings doing so. I am pretty new to postcard collecting and am having a blast with it. I always send a card back unless the person just wishes to give me one and does not want one back.

My reddit gifts profile (the above url section does not work with https for some reason) https://www.redditgifts.com/profiles/view/nytetears

Children: 3 adult

Married: Yes


Chihuahua Tia

Pomeranian: Hatchi

German Shepherd: Sirus

Cat: Kitty (don't ask she wont answer to anything else, bloody cat!)

Postcard wishlist

Ok I now Have one card from every state! YAY. Now lets narrow down a little and try and get a state MAP card from each state. here are the ones I need:

Alaska Arkansas Delaware Georgia Hawaii Idaho Illinois Iowa Maryland Michigan Minnesota Mississippi Montana Nevada New Hampshire New Mexico New York North Carolina Oregon Ohio Oklahoma Pennsylvania Rhode Island South Carolina Tennessee Texas Utah Vermont Virgina Washington West Virginia Wyoming Dc

I prefer cards written and stamped. and 4/6 or smaller. Big cards are nice but a pain to put into binders.

I ******LOVE****** all postallove GF Cards and the unofficial ones too.

Did you know cards,
Famous People,
Greetings from cards both official and unofficial postallove.
Historical locations,
Military bases,
Military cards,
People in daily life,
State Capitals,
UNESCO World Heritage Sites
US Presidents

I would like cards that show where they are from somewhere on them so I can map them on my postcard map. (see my url)

I love postcards that show local life, attractions, scenery, parks, buildings.

I really want to collect the 'Greetings From' cards from postalllove but they are hard to come by

I already have these GF cards:
Aland Islands
Czech Republic
Hong Kong
Poland (2 views)
United Kingdom

Cesky Krumlov

Please no free or homemade postcards and no stickers on the front of the cards I really prefer no stickers at all but the back is ok if you are twitching and must put a sticker somewhere.


Things I like:
Location based postcards
Anything local to you, I love learning and exploring new places, ideas etc.
nick knacks
Note paper Envelopes Pens (I like gel or pens that flow easily) Dragons but they don't like being put in an Envelopes

This best sent to another person:

Anything scented (other then sandalwood I love sandalwood)


I will rate as soon as I get the card if possible. please DO write swapbot and the swap. I am on a number of postcard sites and trying to find who sent you the card is a pain without at least a little hint.

I mark sent as soon as it is in the mailbox.

I am happy to do personal exchanges contact me and lets talk.

I try to send out stuff as soon as the swap starts so I don't forget it. If you did not get something you were expecting please contact me and lets work it out. I do not flake

Favorite Books

I read fantasy books, Some modern day ones but mostly medieval type fantasy

Favorite Television

I rarely watch tv but when I do I am watching
Naked and afraid (and XL)
Big Bang

Favorite Crafts

I make Nano Blocks I used to bead (seed beads) but have not found any patterns I like lately I collect postcards


I don't drink a lot of tea but I do enjoy all herbal tea and I love trying new ones. I really love to try teas that I can not get in the USA. Something specific to your country.

I am an avid chocolate lover but most chocolate teas do not taste like chocolate so I prefer not to drink them.

I love non bitter coffee. Costa Rican is my favorite I have a K cup machine.


I dislike stickers on the backs of postcards when it covers the text telling about the card or when they are puffy stickers. Now they are cute don't get me wrong, but I collect the cards and it just does not work. A nicely placed sticker were it is not covering anything is fine (lol I am sure I sound crazy trying to explain this)

I dislike postcards that do not have anything to do with a location. (unless I am signed up specifically for an exchange for them). The reason for this is that I map my cards. When I get a postcard of a kitten, as cute as it is where does it go on the map? It just does not fit in.

For example, pantone postcards, they make no sense to me. they don't show anything they don't tell anything

These are just preferences, naturally I will be happy to get any card you send
