About Me

Hello there!

Thanks for coming to my profile! As of now, I have been working on collecting more postcards. Mainly tourist, state pcs, map PCs. though love them all. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

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!

It seems as of lately some of my cards have not been making it to their destination. I’ve had 2 or 3 just this month I have had to resend. I am not sure what’s going on, I always try to reach out to my partner first if my mail is taking too long to get there. Please let me know so I can resend promptly. Thanks so much!

Comment: Thank you very much for the Chicago card, I grew up outside of the Windy City - the park must be fairly new? Me too, visit - but I did work downtown for a little over a year and did the commute on the train.
Comment: Thank you for the postcard!

Comment: Summers definitely in full swing here too. The heat index at 5 was 99. Thank you for the beautiful card. It makes me want to get a tiny boat and float lazily on downstream.
Comment: Thanks so much for the pc. I've never been to Philly but it would make for a nice trip I think.

Comment: I loved Captain Marvel too! I just wish there had been more of her in Avengers but there were quite a few trying to get screen time in that movie LOL.
Response: Yes, they crammed a lot in that movie! I want to watch all the avengers in the right order someday. I think the first is Captain America.

I've always wanted to learn the ukelele! I really love how cheery and relaxing it sounds at the same time.

Growing up my mom exposed me to The Beatles and I grew up loving them, too!

Here's a little wave from the 1960s Kings of Pop!

The Beatles Wave Have a great day ahead.🌻
