October, autumn is here. One more month and then winter arrives. The sunlight is still long lasting. The leaves are reaching their peak of colour. Good time for a drive in the country.
I founded this group! :)
Theme: A DIY group. Turn your snapshot photos into postcards, ATCs, notecards, zines, and more. Type: Arts and Crafts
I put a return address label on everything I send out.
If you haven't received a card within a month of my send date, please let me know.
I like staying creative in small ways and this site provides a lot of opportunities. I like handcrafted one-of-a-kind things.
I love making my own postcards and I think it's fantastic when someone sends me something they made themselves. It's a one-of-a-kind personal thing.
Cut n Paste postcards are one of my favourite style of postcards. They are fun to make and receive. I like rummaging through magazines for images that will make a great postcard. Look over on the right, under "Currently Hosting" I've usually got one CnP on the go.
Borrowing from NRGordon's description, I like making postcards from found images. If you like making postcards, definitely send me one if you are my partner in a swap. Let me know how you made it and tell me something about the image you picked (why you picked it, what you like about it).
Besides being profoundly HOH (hard of hearing), I'm introverted (probably more so as I have lost my hearing over the years) and really enjoy the concept of Swapbot. It’s connection through creativity, connection through art, connection through writng, connection without physical contact.
Other things about me: I'm married, approaching our ruby anniversary, and we are childless by choice.
Things I find interesting:
To all those people who join my swaps and rate promptly and with a nice note...

Comedians (and their TV shows):
Current TV Shows:
I'm still a fan of Saturday Night Live. I've watched every season. Including the years they hadn't invented VCRs yet and I had to stay up well past my bedtime to watch.
What We Do in the Shadows. I don't know anyone who doesn't love this movie. There's a TV series out now on the FX channel. Hilarious. These are classic Romanian Victorian vampires living in modern times.
Kim's Convenience (Toronto) Immigrant Korean family run a variety store near Kensington Market in Toronto. Funny. Wonderful characters.
Schitt's Creek I've grown to really like the "Green Acres" style fish-out-of-water storyline. They film in Orangeville and Goodwood, Ontario (I've visited both locations - my friends who like the show are jealous :D ). I've always loved the SCTV comedians. It's great to see Catherine OHara and Eugene Levy working together.
Coronation Street (the world's longest-running television soap opera) I've been watching for decades. Can't stop, even though the writing is pretty bad a lot of the time. But I like the characters, especially the older ones.
