About Me

POSTCARD STORE GRAND OPENING! Postcard Store I am so excited to announce the opening of my new online store featuring my artwork and photography, and retouched vintage photos put on postcards! Click on the link above to check it out!

*I DON"T FLAKE ON SWAPS and I ALWAYS SEND MY SWAPS ON TIME, SO PLEASE SEND ME A MESSAGE IF YOU HAVEN'T RECEIVED A SWAP FROM ME BEFORE RATING. Thanks! ... ALSO, I try not to send the same card to the same person more than once, but I am in so many swaps, it may accidently happen. If it does, and it bothers you, please let me know and I will resend a different one. I want all my partners to be satified with my PCs. :)

I am in my early 40's, married with a beautiful daughter and two cats. We also have a son in heaven who passed away in 2003 from a congenital heart defect at 22 days old. We miss him so much and wish he was here with us.

I am a scenic photographer and artist. Many of my pieces have been featured in local exhibits and galleries in my area.

I have been a cosmetologist since 1988, and I am currently in school to obtain my Esthetics license. Hopefully will be graduating this fall!

I have been an ordained minister for several years and really enjoy uniting two people in love, usually on the beach, or somewhere beautiful. It is so fulfilling!

I have owned my own Scrapbook Retreat business since 2008 and love every minute of it!

Favorite Music

I love Classic Rock and Alternative. Favorite bands: Led Zeppelin, Motley Crue, Black Sabbath, Godsmack, Pink Floyd, Kid Rock, Limp Bizkit, and pretty much anything with great guitar and drum solos.

Favorite Books

I am currently writing a book about signs from loved ones after they passed away. If you would like to submit a story, please check out my website: http://ourangelsawait.com

I love anything by Elizabeth Berg and books on photography, but unfortunately, I don't have much time to read these days.

Favorite Television

Ghost Adventurers, Real Housewives of anywhere EXCEPT New York and D.C., Storage Wars, Sons of Anarchy, Family Guy, and I enjoy the news.

Favorite Crafts

Mixed Media painting/collage, drawing, stamping, scrapbooking, and pretty much anything else that sparks my interest. ;)

Postcards

My favorite thing to swap are postcards!

POSTCARD LIKES: Vintage Style, Cemeteries, Dark and Creepy, Asian Art, Buddah Images, Hindu Images, Black & White, Old Barns / Rustic Things, Castles, Old Buildings, Unique Advertisements, Lighthouses, Famous People, Owls, Alcohol / Bar Related, Anything Uniquely Artistic, *I AM NOT EASILY OFFENDED ;)

POSTCARD DISLIKES: Boring tourist cards. Can't stand them. Please try to find something with a unique quality. I appreciate every card I get, but it is much more fun to receive a card with something interesting to look at on it. :)

Please do not cut the front of a greeting card off and send as a postcard. That is very disheartening to a true PC Collector. Thanks! :)

Dislikes

I don't like Sports or Twilight stuff, or junky slapped together items.

Artist Awareness Project

I recently started a new venture called the Artist Awareness Project. It was developed to bring international awareness to the so called "Undiscovered Artists", that have amazing work yet to be seen. If you are an aspiring artist and you would like to join the free website for lots of opportunities and resources, and get listed in the artist directory, stop by Artist Awareness Project
