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.
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!
Wizard of Oz
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 cheesy 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, religious!! If you send me a holiday card, please keep it non-religious -- snowmen, deer, snowflakes, Snoopy dressed as Santa, winter scenes...that kind of stuff! : ) I appreciate that!
Please join me in any of my groups: International Fun Mail, Postcard trading group, Make A Wish (intl wishlist), Wonderful Wishes (USA only)
I do not use : foam stickers , deco tape, ribbons, beads, buttons, fabric.
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 do not really collect vintage postcards unless they are of topics on my likes list.
I am allergic to cigarette smoke and cat hair and apples. The one scent I despise is cinnamon! Please, please, please no cinnamon scented anything!
I am not easily offended by nudity, but please keep it tasteful. I like postcards of pin-ups and nudes in art.
Please no animal cruelty, rodeos, hunting, dog or horse racing, circus and that type of thing. I am a huge animal lover. I am not a bug lover however. Spiders and bees are ok, most other bugs I can live without! That includes moths and butterflies. I do not use Ohio themed stuff either (only postcards), thank you!
Trying to recycle any envelopes I can so please don't be offended if you get one!
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!
We are down to a standard poodle (Lucky), a tabby cat (Tora), a tortoise and some fish. 9/16: We added PIXIE, a tortie kitten, to our family! She has the same Mama as Tora!
Said goodbye to our mini poodle Daphne on 5/8/19 and our toy poodle Pepper on 1/6/21. 😥
I love big cities and the ocean/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)
2023 travel: We have Florida, California and Japan set so far. NYC was end of February. Boston was in April. Planned a trip for our Leap Day anniversary trip in 2024 - we are going to Mexico City! : )
I enjoy making friends here in the USA and all over the world.
Would love a couple more committed postcard pen pals. No fun sending once or twice and then it's over, never to hear from them again.
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, and 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.
I am in search of poodle postcards (new or vintage, written on or not) and really all things with poodles on them. If you have anything, maybe we can arrange a private swap. I have lots of different things to swap. Let me know! : )
