About Me

I'm the mother of five grown children, with two still living at home; and the grandmother of four. We are a close family and enjoy movies, TV, museums, family game nights, and just hanging out together.

I work in an office with a long commute. I love my job (international logistics) but it can be stressful. Crafting and creating helps me stay sane!

Postcards

Postcards are the main reason I came to Swap-bot. I like to make them, and I like to receive homemade postcards. But I also enjoy all the pretty / arty / uplifting postcards I've seen going around. I have a slight preference for receiving them naked and written on, especially if they are the tourist kind. (It's so fun to receive a picture postcard from far away!) But I don't mind receiving them blank and in envelopes so I can add to my stash.

I guess I can't say that I'm new to this anymore... But I still don't have a large collection to send from.

About Zazzle postcards... I think they are fine, and I have some that I've bought to send and certainly wouldn't mind receiving one in a swap. I don't really understand why there are those who do not like them. The only real problem I have with them is that they are not quite the right dimensions for a postcard. If they could slice a little bit off the two long sides they'd be just perfect!

Favorite Movies

I generally like fun or funny movies and TV shows. Star Wars! Star Trek! Pixar and Disney! But I like some serious stuff too and will usually have seen at least a few Oscar nominees. Never, ever chick flicks though!

Recent favorites:

Movies - loved Baby Driver... enjoyed Guardians of the Galaxy 2... Wonder Woman was OK... The Lego Batman movie was fun!

TV - The Big Bang Theory is still one of my favorite shows although I'm not caught up... Recently binged on The Good Place and liked it... Can watch old episodes of Star Trek (my fav is Voyager) and Stargate SG1 anytime, anyplace... Looking forward to the new season of Stranger Things... Currently watching Parks and Rec on Netflix for the second time, really love that show!

Favorite Crafts

My favorite materials are paper, paint, and pens. I like thrifty crafts where you can use simple materials and even recycle stuff. I try to do something in my art journal everyday, and I enjoy making and sending postcards or note cards to my family that live far away.

I've participated in a couple of homemade postcard swaps (offsite) and loved it!

Miscellaneous

I love pretty / beautiful things - flowers and gardens of all kinds; fun patterns and prints; sunrises and sunsets; rainbows; the moon, stars, and the night sky; natural scenic wonders.

My favorite color is aqua blue or turquoise. I also like pink and red.

I like animals... especially cats and birds... especially owls! Other favorite animals are woodland creatures (foxes, deer, rabbits, etc.) songbirds (chickadees, cardinals, wrens), frogs, lizards, and garden insects.

Some other things I enjoy: Snoopy and the Peanuts Gang or other sweet-natured comics; Spring and Fall; Christmas; Ancient / Classical Greece; Wine, Margaritas, Craft Beers; Mexican Food; Street Art; Coffee and quaint coffee shops; Books, especially sci-fi and fantasy, Monty Python, MST3K, geocaching.

Honestly, I would be happy to receive almost any kind of postcard! The one thing that I am really not very into is scary, gorey, or disturbing images.

Comment: Hello Lisa ~ Thank you for the beautiful PC. So, a lot has happened since you sent this card. I hope you and your family are in a safe and dry place. And I hope you were not part of the flooding. Our hearts are with you.
Response: Thank you for the kind words. It rained for about 4 days straight here, that was after I wrote my postcards for this swap. It was pretty crazy. We watched the water in our street rise up into our yard, closer and closer, but we were fortunate and it didn't flood our home. So many others were not so lucky, it is very sad to see.
