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.
