About Me

Hello there!

Thanks for coming to my profile! As of now, I have been working on collecting more postcards. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

I Pledge to Rate

I LOVE making and sending mail and also swapping mail! I really enjoy making small vintage style "Junk Journals" ! Collect all sorts of small papers, interesting things, postcards.

I live in a small town, in West Michigan. About 10 minutes away from Lake Michigan and Grand Haven. Very beautiful beaches and fun in the summer.

I work as a CNA (Certified Nurse Aide) in a very small rehabilitation and nursing center. I help elderly people and also people recovering from surgery or injury. I love to share things I get in the mail with them.

I am almost 30 and a mom of 3.

Making and sending the mail is just as fun as getting it!



I join a lot of postcard swaps to collect them for me and to share with others!

I save every postcard I get and put it in an album

I then bring albums to work and share the postcards with the residents at the nursing home!

Thank you!

Comment: Thank you for the pretty Lake Erie postcard! It looks like a great place to spend the day! We have visited Lake Michigan before, near some dunes I think it was in Indiana. We had a nice time there! The snow would not be fun though! :) Thanks again for the PC!

Comment: Thanks Cate for your lovely soft postcard of kitties having tea! I loved it! How kind of you to mention my cats as well. I really appreciate it. I have not updated my profile as of September 8 i had to put Baba down as she had cancer. I really appreciate that you mentioned her. You did not know this and i just thought it was so touching of you to be so kind. I loved the random theme as Cats because that could not be better. Claire her half sister is still here with me. Claire is older too 18 now! Thank you again!

Comment: Enjoyed the postcard selection! Added some more and I’m ready to pass it along! It wasn’t in its own envelope though, but I signed my name on the paper. 🙂
Response: Hey, I'm sorry this was my first train. I feel terrible I didn't put them in an envelope. I'm sorry. I was nervous about getting it right and then messed it up!. Thanks for passing along.
