About Me

So it's looking like that 1 rating I've got might not be going away. I sent the swap out twice. First time she says she didn't get it. Now she doesn't seem to be responding to any of my messages. So, that's that, just in case you were wondering.

I would not join a swap if I did not intend to send. If you don't receive something from me, contact me and I will resend. Also, I’m just getting back into this after a long hiatus so if you happen to get anything from me with postage-due please let me know and I will reimburse you.
If you sent me something and I have not rated you yet or left you a thank you on your profile, please PM me. Sometimes things get accidentally misplaced before I can get to rating and sometimes I just plain forget.

I'm 59 and have been married to my best friend for more than 30 years. We met in the 4th grade and have been best friends ever since. Our kids are the four-legged kind. We have 2 poodles, Coco and Millie. They are great, they are my little babies.

I’m a breast cancer survivor. I’m a runner. I’ve run at least 30 half-marathons, 7 full marathons and one ultra-marathon.
I drive a Jeep Wrangler (with a Wonder Woman theme) I have tattoos (one is a Wonder Woman logo, one is a cancer survivor one, one is a chameleon) I want an Alice In Wonderland Tattoo but haven't decided exactly what or where yet. I’m a data programmer and work from home for a Fortune 500 company.

I used to craft a lot but not so much the last few years. I really only join swaps for postcards & letters right now but thinking I might need to get back into making ATCs.

I watch very little (hardly any) television and don’t watch movies I like to read, in spurts when the mood strikes me. I like history, historical fiction and biographies. I like listening to music. I like classic rock, 80’s (but not hair bands), 90’s, yacht rock, country. Some favorites are (in particular order) - Vince Gill, Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, Fleetwood Mac, Eagles, U2, Rod Stewart, David Bowie, Pink, Adele, Queen.

Things I like in no particular order:
All kinds of postcards
Dogs (especially poodles)
Alice in Wonderland
The letter A
Wonder Woman
Animal rescue
Women’s Rights
Peace & Love (Hippie style stuff)
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Black & White photography
Colorful things
Strong women
Craft Beer
Yellow (my favorite color)
Star Wars
Albert Einstein
Leonardo de Vinci
Dr Seuss
Mister Rogers
Positive quotes
Funko Pop
Vintage photos ( b&w/sepia)
Historical figures or places
Katherine Hepburn
Lauren Becall
Humphrey Bogart

ATCs (and stuff to make them)
Ephemera (vintage type stuff)

I like handmade postcards (and cards). I like the uniqueness of them and appreciate the time and effort that goes into them. I also like to make them even though I may not be that good at it.
So, feel free to send me handmade postcards even if the swap says no, so long as they fit the rest of the requirements.

I’m not a very religious person but I don’t mind getting religious postcards. I like postcards of houses of worship. I also don’t mind getting ones for holidays I don’t celebrate (like Hanukkah or Dewali)

This is the most important thing when you send me a postcard. Unless they are blank in an envelope please write something on the card. I enjoy reading them all. Tell me about the card, something you did recently, how you’re feeling, your pet, your job, a favorite quote, a random thought. Anything, I don’t care how mundane you may think it is. That is the main reason why I like postcards, for the little glimpse of the person that sent it.

Please don’t send the following:
Tea or coffee - I don’t drink it so I won’t use it.

Hi Alice! Thanks for the WWI poster postcard, I love it! I haven't received the one sent to my old address, but it should arrive soon as I did have my mail forwarded. I am not sure what this card is for though, so if I owe you a rating or acknowledgement in the Wishlist group please let me know. Thanks again for sending it to me, I really adore these cards :)
