My name is Justene and I live in southern Ontario, Canada & I am married to my bestest friend in the whole world. I have 3 wonderful sons who are my pride and joy and the light of my life. I have a beautiful granddaughter who is perfectly precious and all things wonderful!
I LOVE animals and have a dog named Roxie and a cat named Frank and they are spoiled to bits! They are more often than not, the subjects of my amateur photography hobby! I love taking photos of them! ♥♥♥
I work full-time outside my home and look sooo forward to getting home and diving into my crafting! I love mixed media arts, art journaling, scrapbooking, card making & all things paper!
I LOVE mailart - I love to decorate all my envies and also love to receive decorated mail. Life's too short to mail anything in a plain white envelope! A naked envelope is an unhappy envelope. Be bold! Decorate that envie!
I just purchaed my firt Midori Traveler's Notebook and I'm having so fun much using it! A brand new adventure for me! Planning, decorating - sooo many wonderful ideas on Pinterest for planners! It's such a lovely idea of daily recording that will provide a golden treasure trove of memories at year's end!
I love all things vintage! Papers, ephemera, ribbons, buttons, textiles, books, book covers, antique door knobs, vintage clothing, old journals, photo frames, vintage imagery & postcards.
I LOVE photography and take lots & lots of pictures! I love experimenting with my photos - I use both a Nikon D3100 DSLR as well as my iPhone. I love to scrapbook my most special photos and am in the midst of doing scrapbooks for my three sons, as well as my granddaughter. I also am in my second year of doing Project Life scrapbooking, which I love so much!
I love going to art festivals, museums & flea markets....and bringing home treasure troves of goodies to use in my crafting.

CHOCOLATE! Love love love chocolate! Love to try all different types of chocolate from all over this wonderful planet. There's nothing better than a good friend, except a good friend with CHOCOLATE!
♥ I love collecting postcards. I joined PostCrossing.com which is a wonderful network to exchange postcards! I like the idea of collecting postcards & postage stamps from all over the world... the kind that are written on and dated and stamped by the post office. Not only for the postcard itself, but for the soul that was connected to it, and the different hands that have touched it, and the different eyes that have read it on its wonderful journey to my little corner of the world.
I would love to receive postcards that represent the country or area where you live. Traditional customs, architecture, street views, houses, people, animals, art & quirky items. I also love hand-made by you -- your ideas, your inspiration, your creativity!
More postcard favourites:
Vintage ● Artsy ● Whimsical ● Romantic ● Moomins ● Jetoy Cats ● Churches ● Castles ● UNESCO World Heritage Sites ● Cities at night ● The Pyramids ● Steampunk ● Alice in Wonderland ● Winnie The Pooh ● Children's Literary Classics ● Cats ● Elephants ● Polar Bears ● Gorillas
I'd also love to receive postcards of the New Seven Wonders of the World:
The Great Wall of China ● Petra in Jordan ● Brazil's statue of Christ the Redeemer ● Peru's Machu Picchu ● Mexico's Chichen Itza Pyramid ● The Colosseum in Rome ● India's Taj Mahal
Please, no free-ad or multi-view postcards. Also, I prefer naked postcards (no envelopes) with hand-written messages & pretty postage-stamps! Thank you!
