About Me

9/11- I am all caught up on my ratings. If for some chance you have not been rated then I have not received the swap or have received it without a name or swap ID so that I could rate it. Just message me and let me know if I did not rate you and I will look back on the cards with no names and swap IDs.

Update on Postcard Giveaway - I am still sending out postcards to those who have requested. I have been in the process of organizing them. I should be sending out in the next week. I have your names and addresses down and will message you before I send so that you can be on the lookout for them.Thank you for your patience. It has been a really big job as there are so many postcards; boxes and boxes. Thank you for all of your interest

7/30 I have been doing a lot of cleaning and organizing during this pandemic and in anticipation of moving within the year. I am going to thin down my postcard collection and want to give them to people who collect them. Anyone who wants a stack of postcards for free, no trades, I will pay the shipping. I will be going through them in about two weeks when the garage is cleaned out and I have time to organize them. All you have to do is message me and let me know if you want a stack of about 150 to 200 miscellaneous postcards. I will be happy to send them to you.

5/22- I want to explain why I have a recent 3. Someone recently gave me a 1 without letting me know that they didn't receive a swap. When I messaged this person they finally let me know that the swap had not arrived. I sent a special resend of the swap the same day. However after the swap was received I was then given a 3. I did everything I could to rectify the fact that this swapper had not received this swap once I found out that my swap had been lost in the mail. Most people who have swapped with me before know to message me to let me know that they have not received my swap. Usually this is because it is lost in the mail and not because I have not sent it. I always send out my swaps and always by the due date. Thank you to everyone for understanding my current situation.

Hi Friends, I hope everyone is doing well in this current crisis we are experiencing. I have been pretty much on lockdown except for careful trips to the post office. I am totally caught up on my ratings. If you have not been rated it is probably because the card did not have the swap on it and I couldn't find where it belonged, your name was not on the card or I did not receive it yet. Just let me know and I will search for those that didn't get rated. Also the mail is probably crazy now so I understand if something gets lost. Just let me know. And if you need to be late just let me know because that is never a problem for me.

PLEASE PLEASE message me rather than give me a 1 and I will always send another card out to you. That is never a problem. I never give a 1 without finding out your situation and I hope that you will give me the same consideration. Many times mail gets lost in the post office so even though I have mailed you something it might have been lost.

I have been married for the past 29 years and have two beautiful children, a girl who is 27 and a boy who is 21. Right now I am not working so swapping takes up most of my time. I have gone through some bouts of depression so I do go to therapy once a week. I also like to play bingo. I go to a few games a week. Part of my therapy, my therapist said is to get involved in hobbies so swapping does keep my mind busy. @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

I love postcards and love to have them from all over the world, ones that are representative of the area where one lives. But I love other postcards too.

Favorite Crafts

Some of my hobbies are knitting, crocheting, arts and crafts; especially color pencils and by the number pictures. I also like to make jewelry. My current thing is using African paper beads found at beadforlife.com. They are so unique and different and I mix them with beads that I find at craft stores. I also like iris folding and plan to make some cards for a future swap.I like to do ATCs. Lately I have been doing zentangles and watercolor painting.

My Favorites

My favorite colors are pink, blue and lavender. I also am a big cat lover. I have a 14 year old cat named Sparkle and a 10 year old cat, named Bella. I also love puppies.We have a Yorkie named Mia. She is about 10 years old. She is so cute and loves to play with Bella. I love nature. So that's about all from me. If I think of something else I will add it.

Favorite Music

I basically like alternative music and inspirational music. Also yoga type music which I listen to to fall asleep. Also I have gotten into Enya. I also love show tunes.

Favorite Books

I am not a big reader, however, I have read a lot of Danielle Steele books. I guess you could call these romance novels. I do read a lot of short stories. They are my favorite type of reading. In fact, I am taking classes that are short story discussions. Other books I like are self-help types. I am hooked on diet books and love religious reading, especially books dealing with Judaism. I like biographies also.

Favorite Movies

Since this crisis I have been watching a lot of movies. My favorites are comedy/romance/drama. I really liked Moonlight, Green Book and If Beale Street Could Talk. These were excellent movies. I like movies that make me cry. I know that sounds weird but for me it is a release of feelings.I have Directv so I am catching up on movies that I haven't seen in the theater.

Favorite Television

Reality, reality and more reality. I can't get enough. The latest sitcoms have really bored me. I love Survivor and have seen all of them.I also love This Is Us. I have really gotten into Law and Order and CSI, all of them, Miami, NY, and Las Vegas. A & E has many of them in a row. I WATCH A LOT OF TV. Most of the time though it is on mostly as white noise while I am cleaning or doing swaps. I also like all of the crime shows. Criminal Minds is a favorite. This season is really good. Also Law and Order SVU. I also love Curb Your Enthusiasm. With so much free time I will probably watch all of the seasons again on HBO NOW.TLC has great shows too and I love the shows on Destination TV. I love the 90 Day Fiance shows and Four Weddings.

My Postcard Preferences

I can't tell you how much I love receiving postcards from all over. I like all kinds of scenes from anywhere. I like buildings, special tourist attractions, beaches and lakes, multi-view scenes where there are three to four views of different places on the card, mountain scenes with snow, street scenes with restaurants and shops, and any other that tell me about where someone lives. I also like animal cards, kittens and puppies or dogs, transportation and really any card you send will be special to me. I love greetings on the back, quotes, a little about you or whatever you want to tell me.


I celebrate the Jewish holidays. But I still like to send out cards for Christmas, Valentines Day, Easter, as well as Jewish holidays. I do participate in celebrations that others have for Christmas and even like to have one of the Christmas cookie swaps at my house.We do put up a tree and do Christmas as we always did this for my mother-in-law and the kids got use to doing it. My daughter is perhaps the best tree decorator I know. She should work for a store decorating the trees. I also love postcards that show a city decked out for the holidays or any card that has a holiday on it.

Dislikes and things I swap

There probably isn't a postcard that I wouldn't like except snakes and lizards so I would not want anything with that on it. As far as what I would like to swap would be stickers, any kind but especially cats and dogs. I also like scraps of paper especially giftwrap. I do Iris Folding and love different kinds of paper. I also like scrapbook paper. I guess it really depends upon what swap that I choose to be part of. I also like to swap greeting cards that are written on. I never really receive that many cards, especially during Christmas/Hanukkah, but this year was really different with all of the swaps and groups that I belong to. I am so thankful for my postal pals.

Comment: I love parrotfish for the same reason. They are so naturally colorful. I actually like the shape of their beak. I think it is interesting how nature (evolution) "recycles." Nature doesn't make new things; it uses what is already made and improves. 😊 Stay healthy and safe.

Hugs & prayers for you & yours take your time writing to me if I am your partner. Swaps do not need to be specific & if I am partnered with you multiple times, you can wait to sent them all out in one envie if that easier for you. Take care of yourself. Swaps can wait.❀️
