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.

Speaking of which, I'm still new at this so I don't have a large collection to send from yet.

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!

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 postcard swaps (offsite) and loved it!

Miscellaneous

I love pretty / beautiful things - flowers and gardens of all kinds; fun fabrics 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: Thank you very much for your lovely card - it sure looks beautiful 😊. What does that quote/line 'Don't mess with Texas!' mean/stand for? 😃
Response: Hello! To answer your question, there was a big advertising campaign in Texas a few years back to encourage people to throw trash away properly instead of littering. The campaign slogan was "Don't mess with Texas" and it really caught on (became popular) because we Texans are very proud of our state and we don't want anyone to "mess" with us. I'm not sure I explained that very well but I hope it makes sense! Thanks for the rating!
