  • POSTCARDS! I like them blank and unwritten. I do not like ad cards unless they show one of my "likes". If I sign up for a written/stamped postcard swap, please send it that way. I collect blank and written postcards! Thank you!

  • I am a Taurus & love Zodiac-related items. Also Year of the Dog from the Chinese Zodiac.

  • NJ Devils, NY Mets.

  • Starbucks and Dunkin' Donuts. I like tea but simple flavors. Please no Earl Grey, and please nothing apple (allergic) or plain cinnamon! (Chai is ok though!) If you have decaf I'll take it!

Favorite Movies

Wizard of Oz

Favorite Books

I will read fiction & non-fiction, but do not like sci-fi or romance. A romance in literary fiction is fine, I just don't like over the top romance books or chick lit.

If you send me a postcard or swap: Tell me a must-read or your personal favorite(s).


I am not interested in ANYTHING political or religious!! If you send me a holiday card, please keep it non-religious -- snowmen, deer, snowflakes, Snoopy dressed as Santa...that kind of stuff! : )

I do not like/need scrapbooking supplies/raised stickers , deco tape, ribbons, beads, buttons, paper scraps, craft supplies (not my thing and won't be used). PLEASE no! I DO LOVE rubber stamps. New or used. I am hardly creative with them, make lots of smears, but I still enjoy using them on postcards and letters! ; )

I enjoy postcards sent unwritten in an envelope, but "naked" is fine too - I save all postcards. Whatever's easy - you won't get a complaint from me unless there's a choice on how to send it and I have made a comment. I do not like ad cards unless they somehow relate to any of my "likes".
Typically handmade postcards are not my favorite,but I have a few really cool ones that I've received!

I am allergic to cigarette smoke and cat hair and apples. The one scent I despise is cinnamon! Please, please, please no cinnamon anything!

I am not easily offended by nudity, but please keep it tasteful. I like postcards of pin-ups and the like - nudes in art welcome too. Please no animal cruelty,rodeos,hunting, dog or horse racing, circus and that type of thing. I am a huge animal lover. Also no bugs please. : /

About Me

I live with my husband in Columbus, OH. I got married on 2/29/12; Leap Day! Yes, on purpose. I have no children. I am from New Jersey and miss it!

I have a white toy poodle and an assortment of reptiles:a tortoise, a turtle, and a lizard Lots of fish too! Said goodbye to my mini poodle Daphne on 5/8/19. 😥

I love the ocean and beaches and anything to do with them. I love to travel and try to take one "big" vacation a year. My dream is to make it to Australia and The Maldives. (Of course not in the same trip)
This year I’ll be going to Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest and Prague. Italy and Switzerland. Japan. (Three separate trips)

I enjoy making friends here in the USA and all over the world.

Please read

I want to be sure everyone receives what I sent, so PLEASE let me know if you didn't get a swap from me. I will resend if necessary. I rate daily. If I will be away, I will post it on my profile. Please have the courtesy to rate me. This is part of the agreement in a swap! I want to be sure my partner gets what I've sent. Please let me make it right before rating me poorly. I have all letters and packages weighed at the post office, but will try to use stamps whenever possible. This is for fun; it is not life or death!! I am not here to rate poorly! I just want to get something in line with swap requirements in return for what I send! I will always message partners to be sure they got a swap from me if I haven't been rated. I will also let a partner know if I haven't received a swap in a reasonable amount of time. Please do the same for me! Thanks to everyone.

MamaMangrove rated for 5 Postcards to 2 Partners #185 on Feb 7, 2020
Comment: What a great swap, Susan! Gorgeous envie and such a wonderful selection of PCs. I love every one of them. And then you top it off with the cool extra vintage-stamp notepaper! Thank you so much for your thoughtful generosity. Enjoy your upcoming trip -- bet you'll find some great postcards!

Response: You’re welcome!!! I’ve collected more for next time! Thanks so much for the rating! : )
Comment: Thanks for this wonderful artistlc envelope with extras! It brightened up a dreary winter day! When flying, it does take a long time to go across Alaska! End to end, it is the same distance as the entire Lower 48. You probably flew right over my house. :) Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: I’m so happy you got it!!! Yes, it takes at least 5 hours to fly over, it’s really huge! Next time I’ll wave to you, ha ha!! : ) Hope you’re doing great! xxx

shirleyinCA rated for 5 Postcards to 2 Partners #184 on Jan 31, 2020
Comment: Got home from my daughter's in TX to 7 swap envelopes: I saved yours for last because I knew it would be the best and it was! Ooh, that Capellini glittery Valentine!!! The Peter Pan sketch and Richard Scarry cards are so much fun and that owl is quite impressive! Great graphic letters.Thanks for extras in a nicely stamped envelope. On the back you stamped "Hope your day is Magical." Would you be able to stamp that a couple times on some cardstock or paper for me sometime and include when you're sending me a swap? (The image on the envelope got a bit scuffed in the mail.) Just because I am supposed to end each positive conversation with Guests at Disneyland by saying, "Have a Magical Day!" So I'd love that phrase in my journal and scrapbook and also I want to print it and stick on each of our work computers -- my fellow Cast Members will either love it or groan, depending on their temperment!!!!! Many people say I am one of the few that can say it sincerely. I've even sometimes had angry Guests tell me, "Oh Disney puts you here because you're so nice, how am I gonna' #%&# swear at you!" Thanks again for a wonderful swap!
Response: Yes!!! I’ll stamp that for you and send it out this week!! Do you know it’s coincidence I stamped that - until now I didn’t even think about Disney - how silly of me!!! I’m glad you liked the postcards too and thanks for the rating!! xoxo
dvmac rated for Non-Touristy Postcards #10 on Jan 30, 2020
Comment: Hi Susan. Thanks for the cards. I liked them all, but the girl scout and the Native American woman are especially nice. Thanks again. And oh! The Dali stamp! You knew I'd love that!
Response: I hoped you’d like the Dali stamp. It’s a favorite of mine! And happy I chose postcards you like. Thanks for the rating!!! : )

Response: Thank you for joining in with me!! Hope you have a great night!!! xx
Comment: Mmmm... that green water looks so beautiful! Very different from the beach near me (Galveston). Our winter has been very mild so far, no temps in the teens. Hope if warms up for you soon! Thank you for postcard!
Response: I love beaches, especially tropical ones!! Looking towards Spring but winter hasn’t been too, too bad at least! Thanks so much for the rating!!!
Comment: Thanks a lot for the postcards!
Response: You’re welcome! Thanks for the rating! : )
