I LOVE photography! It is a great passion of mine. I shoot all types of subjects: gardens, buildings, pets, people, and anything else that inspires. I shoot digital, but still love film. I even have a few vintage cameras!
ATCs rock my socks. i've made all sorts of different ones with photos, paints, pens, wet embossing... i love making them!
I've done some matchboxes and i'm loving them. It's great creating a little treasure of art!!
Also collecting POSTCARDS! Apparently i've been collecting them longer than i realized! haha.
I'm interested in all types: black & white, scenic, vintage, art, maps, tourist, non-typical, photograph, random weird ones... anything that's nice to look at! I prefer one scene on touristy cards opposed to a postcard with numerous scenes. I would love any from your local area that say the name of your city or state! i'm starting to keep track on a map. :)
I also love map cards! While i love any map card, from states or countries, i'm working on collecting the 50 U.S. states map cards! Here are the states I am looking for: Idaho, Nevada, Arizona, Wyoming, Montana, Minnesota, Indiana, Kentucky, Alabama, Maryland, Delaware, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Alaska. To anyone that can send me map cards, Thank you so much!!
Here are some things that i'd love to receive!
*Things with Butterflies
*Things with Robots

*Things with Moose
I'm sure i'll think of more soon...
