About Me

Update 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 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. Would be happy to send those out in swap trades. 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. I have over 200 different postcards from that tourist place and welcome more.

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. Please send cat cards to those displaying cats in their profiles.

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.

Thank you

Comment: Thanks for these great PC and I love the stamps too! Our mountains are white with new snow, but we have only rain down here, or sleet, that melts right away. I have a purry kitty that wants my attention, right now, pulling at my knee to be picked up. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry

Comment: Thanks for the great PC! No, no roads in MN get that much snow, but in neighboring ND and SD can. Also the Upper Michigan, and Duluth, Superior, just to name a few, because of Lake Effect snowfall. Have a great day and happy swapping.....

Comment: Don't be confused. I am not fond of multi view cards. But, I do have a lot in my stash I would like to pass on. I don't mind receiving naked cards for my collection. Thank you for an especially nice one of my favorite state. The mountains are really majestic in Colorado. Joy
