About Me

Unless a swap really catches my eye I will be taking a break for christmas. Merry Christmas to all.

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.

I just found my stamp and coin collection from when I was a kid and I would love to get back into it. I collected mostly foreign stamps and coins. It does not have to be pristine I just like seeing the other types of money and stamps.

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


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
Small denomination coins/bills from non us/canada countries. (not perfect ok) Stamps (used ok) from your country

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

goldfinchmeadowlark Hosting my 100th Swap!! Sent the card Oct 28 and sent a private message on Nov 18 2017 asking her to rate. The message is unread

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. (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

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.

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

Soldier I sponsor

I am sponsoring a soldier who is serving overseas, For Christmas, I would love to get him a ton of Christmas cards. I need to mail them out by Dec 5 so need them before then. PM me for mailing instructions if you wish to help. If you are sending me a Christmas card in a swap please make it out to the soldier Name Jabrell

Comment: Thank you Kathy for taking the time to write me a great letter letting me know a little about you. I truly enjoyed reading it! I’m so happy to hear all that you are involved with! It’s awesome that you have been helping people and how nice to adopt a soldier! That is a very kind thing to do! Baba was ok that you sent a dog card as she sniffed the card and walked away. She was not impressed as is her usual attitude if she is not upset! Haha! I loved the card and how fun it was to see Baba being not -that -interested.....she had had several scares in the day so she was a bit worn out! I’ll be sending you a note back Kathy! Thank you!
Response: So glad you enjoyed the card, tell baba I am truly sorry and will try better next time lol
