About Me

08-2018 - Postmarks - I rarely look at those and most often cannot see them on postcards. I am interested in sending on time and getting rated when the recipient receives the swap. I do check off each swap when rated and when I rate what I receive. I try to keep records for what I sent so I do not duplicate and if needed to resend a swap.

I have found many swaps to be fun, challenging and rewarding. Thank you to all those participating. You are creating a fun experience.

I always rate, usually the day I receive a swap. I hope others treat swaps received from me the same way. I usually mail very soon after partners are assigned, so if you haven't received the swap from me, PM me, I'll resend. In US should be 2 weeks delivery and 3-4 weeks for international swaps.

I read the profile of who I send to and who I receive from. I found a new friend who lives near me. Her profile mentions the Denver Postcard Club. I joined and love it. We have monthly meetings with fantastic topic presenters and we can look through and purchase postcards. I participate twice a year in the children's project to fill 150 envelopes with postcards and stamps to the Ronald McDonald House and the hospital to introduce postcards and mailing them to the Children.

I have been collecting whales for over 40 years, one day I will see one in real life. We tried once but rain for three days didn't allow the day trip. I have traveled all the states except Alaska. Sewing is my passion for costumes for grandchildren or machine embroidery for fun and sometimes for pay. Joann Fabrics, Michael's and Hobby Lobby are my kind of toy store!

Favorite Crafts

Love to sew and do machine embroidery. I have a granddaughter with very specific ideas for costumes and decorating her clothing. She gives me challenges for sewing projects.

I enjoy new techniques in my sewing and love to make the Free Standing Lace Angels to give to everyone who visits.

I am trying to do some quilting or at least table runners. Missouri Quilts on Youtube is a great place to get tutorials.

I learned to make Microwave Fabric Bowls and went nuts making over 200 sets of them so far. I use them instead of flat pot holders.

Counted Cross stitch is also a passion

Favorite Places to visit

I absolutely love to visit Mt Rushmore. Since 1963 it is the most visited spot ever for me and I find something new each time. One time my dog even went with me on my trips from Illinois to Montana. Animals are no longer allowed on the Presidential Walk or in the amphitheater. I have over 300 different postcards from that tourist place and welcome more. Mine are in a binder now instead of a photo box. It is much easier to view them.

2019 - October weekend I visited "My Men" again. The area is under construction and the Presidential walk is partially closed. I did get evening and sunrise photos. I visited local antique stores for more postcards. I was thrilled to find a Giant size Linen card! Did not know those were made.

2017 - Labor Day weekend, my granddaughter and I went to see my men with a focus to find the three tunnels that have the Mt Rushmore framed view. We found them and the three pig-tail bridges. I had thought there were only one of each. Those places are now on video and digital pictures.

I would go back to Europe in a heartbeat and revisit Castles and distant relatives in Switzerland.

New England historical sites are very much a fascination to me. The Whaling Museum is also on my bucket list.

Postcards

Touristy are my Most Favorite!

I have been collecting post cards for years buying those instead of other souvenirs. I collect postcards from every place I visit. I put the date and who was with me on the back. I have boxes of them filed by states, countries and other themes. They can capture pictures that my camera cannot. I like city views, landmarks, country scenes, day and night themes, maps (state or country) and most any interesting pictures. I like the colorful pictures of places, map cards and information ones of places as well. I will trade animals or flowers if that is what is required in the swap. I would prefer touristy cards from places to see over the artsy or animal pictures with the exception for Whales - I collect all kinds of Whales. Postcard swaps with touristy or specific theme, but not animal or flowers. I have no filing boxes or folders for flowers or animals other than Whales. I like the places visited to inspire me to add to my bucket list.

I have Colorado cards galore, send me a different state card, please. I am a dog person - Dachshunds and I collect whales. Please send other animal cards to those displaying animal requests in their profiles.

Wishlist - State Capitol Building - AK, AR, MD,MA

Dislikes or not into-- Tea or cocoa, rather have my Boyer's coffee made in Denver.
Make-up not allergic - just not into it, Color Orange, but I am trying (pumpkins are cute)

Sad to say dislikes or disappointments are the flakers and non-raters. I am getting my share.

I will no longer seek out a rating. If you do not receive the swap, let me know and I can resend.

I will sometimes use washi tape and stickers on envelopes and postcards. I do not use the puffy style and would rather you send those to other people. I have to take them off so I can file postcards. Instead of lots of stickers, use the area for writing interesting ideas or topics.

Swaps

International Swaps and envelope swaps are taken to the post office. Envelopes are weighed and checked for thickness. I print the address by copy paste from the swap. Your address is then exactly how it is in Swap-bot. My end I feel is secure by handing the swap directly to the postal worker. I will reconsider doing International swaps if resends become an ongoing issue. It gets too costly.

If you do receive a swap from me, would you be so kind as to rate so that I know you received it.

Please leave the bottom half-inch on the front and back for the postal service to mark the card with the bar codes. Writing in that area is difficult to read or completely blurred.

Thank you
