My nephew and the postcards that I sent from Poland. Starting them young. Go Poczta Polska!


Hi all. I am a 55 yr. old woman who loves art, outdoors, gardening, my Blue Heeler, Zip, my kitty Tabby, letters and photography. I am a rural mail carrier thus mail is life :).

I listen to Wisconsin Public Radio. I have no television. I do enjoy Netflix by DVD and I am a regular fixture at our local library.

I like coffee house, folk, alternative, indie and hard rock music.

LOVE Holy Taya


I prefer my postcards naked-stamps, postmarks, splotches, machinery scrapes and all.

I LOVE really well made handmade postcards. I look at them as miniature works of art. Send me something I can put on my wall! :)

Another love is black and white postcards.


Anything mail or USPS related

Eastern European history, culture and food

Original fairy tales






Farmers Markets & co-ops

Being vegetarian/vegan

My Prius

Vintage stationery







DaVinci's Lady with an Ermine



Black and white

Tea, caffeine free or decaf


If you have me as a partner in a tea swap I would appreciate if you would send decaf or caffeine free. I am not picky about flavors as I have learned by sheer accident that I like some I have never tried before.

Thanks for the consideration :).

FOOD: For any swaps that include food I am willing to try most anything and I have no allergies.

For candy I prefer chewy rather than hard.

Dark chocolate

peanut butter



Anything prune. plum, figs, dates.


I enjoy trying something new. I ate my way through Poland, LOL.

I am easy to please. :)


A cleaning lady.


Comment: Sorry for the late late late rating! I love the birds on the front of the card that you sent, they are beautiful, and the embossing is really neat! Merry Christmas!

bluesky rated for Passover Holiday Greeting Card on Apr 13, 2017
Comment: Thanks for the card and letter! :) Re: I'd love to write back, I'm just flooded with Passover and a crazy amount of doc appointments :(
Response: That is ok, I figured you were. If in the future you'd like to let me know, OK? Make sure you let us know when the baby comes!

Daemswaps rated for I share my favourite tea with you on Mar 29, 2017
Comment: What a beautiful piece! Loved the color choices you used too. Definitely proud to hang this up in my hallway!
Response: I am glad you like it. And you are correct, sea green is impossible to find! But I tried :).
January rated for junk journal of lists-usa on Mar 25, 2017
Comment: Your journal was wonderful - I really enjoyed reading it - made me wonder what my partner will think when they read mine. Some of it was challenging, wasn't it? AND - your wrote that one of your fave movies was Ushpizin?? I loved that movie too. And you have an Israeli song on there too - I couldn't read the name of the artist - who was it? I listen to a lot of Israeli music and speak fluent Hebrew. This was a cosmic coincidence.
Response: It is either Amir Ve Ben or Holy Taya. I also love the Kol Cambridge podcast on TLV1, it is my workout music, LOL. And yes, I loved Ushpizin so much when I got it from Netflix that I had to buy it. That is rare for me but when I feel blue I just watch it and I feel better right away :D. I agree, cosmic coincidence! I don't know anyone who is interested in such things around here so it is so fun when I connect with someone.

Comment: That was a very cute and clever card! Thanks!
PrairieKittin rated for The Ides of Trump on Mar 16, 2017
Comment: I love your postcard! I'm going to use it as the center of a journal page. Thank you! And, thank you so much for joining the "movement". I doubt he will ever see any of the postcards, and if someone tells him about them, he'll tell everyone about how much fan mail he's getting. :-( But, it did make me feel a little better to voice my opinion, even if it'll land on deaf ears!
Response: I am glad you like it! It is from the cover of a magazine but I can't find it online so I scanned the card before I mailed it to you to use again. I think whoever made it should sell it! It is fabulous. Maybe all the cards will end up in the Smithsonian, LOL. I too doubt he'll see them unless they end up on Fox news or SNL.
shinyserra rated for Winter Stuffed Journal on Mar 15, 2017
Comment: I got my journal just now and it is beautiful! Thank you so much for taking the time to make it detailed and special. This is one of the best journals I've ever received! I read only 2 pages so far but I can't wait to go through it all page by page. Thank you so much!
Response: I am glad it arrived and you like it. I put a lot of work in preparing it and refused to start until 2017. It was a lot of work but a lot of fun too. Look at all that stuff! LOL!

Comment: Thank you so much. Ive never heard of texture paper before..ive felt textured paper but diddnt know thats what its called :) im gonna add it to my shopping list 💜
Response: You can make your own texture paste. Just 1/3 glue 1/3 baking soda and 1/3 acrylic paint, mix together and use. If too thin add more baking soda. Easy peasy!! Just google it :)

Hi! I'm sure I will eventually write ;-) or email? would be easier right now, although I like letters more :) I never thought I would be flooded with SO many appointments :(

bluesky on Apr 10, 2017:

Thank you so much for your holiday wishes! :) Have a good week! :)

Thanks for the pizza recommendation - looked up the brand name and I might be able to find it at my regular grocery store (Busch's) as well as Meijer and Kroger.

dvmac on Dec 20, 2016:

Thanks for the card. I love it. Is that one of your hobbies?

Knitsicle on Dec 15, 2016:

Hi there! Just wanted to let you know I got your first two cards for PC Diary...thank you!!!

ihni on Aug 20, 2016:

If I knew how to add an image, I'd send you a picture of a cake here (since I don't want to risk your threat from the ransom note swap to come true!), but I don't know how to do that ... so just imagine a cake here, okay? A pretty pretty cake. Or two! (Don't wanna risk it!) :D
