I love picking out postcards and preparing packages almost (if not) as much as receiving them. If there is an issue with what you received, please let me know before rating! I will work with you to resolve it! If you have not received a swap, please let me know!
Request: for swaps in envies, please do not put post-it notes on the back of PCs. I've received several like this, and they leave a sticky residue which ruins the postcards.
I live in Burdett, NY with my husband and my dogs (a black pug mix, Walter - 10 yo, a black pug named Lily - 4 yo, a black puggle named Norman - 3 yo.)
I love knitting, making jewelry, reading, and wasting time on facebook (aimeedars)--especially playing Bejeweled Blitz, ravelry (aimeedars), flickr (aimeedars), postcrossing (darzy30), and etsy (aimeedars).
I received a postcrossing postcard mentioning swapbot, so I signed up! I primarily joined to swap postcards, but I occasionally venture into other swaps as well.
My many collections include postcards, magnets, state zipper tags with my name, snow globes (from places only), beads, pigs, pugs, corn, and yarn. I have started making smushed pennies...we'll see how that goes.
I enjoyed collecting the state quarters. I filled up my collector's book, and thought I was done, but I just saw a new quarter for Guam! I am also collecting the National Park quarters. I just got a collector's book and realized that my collection is completely incomplete! I only have NP quarters from 2015, so if you happen to have any from earlier years, I'd love to take them off your hands and am happy to do a private swap!
I like Spongebob, Picachu, Richard Scarry, and Oscar the Grouch.
My favorite color is purple. I also like teal, burnt orange, magenta, and lime green. (Mostly jewel tones.)
Scents: I love lavender, eucalyptus, cucumber/melon, tea tree. I am less fond of floral scents.
Stickers: Animals, Flowers, Oscar the Grouch, SpongeBob SquarePants, Paul Frank, Abstract shapes
I have been veg*n since 1997--became vegetarian then and vegan in 2005. I love farm animals!
Walter is 10 years old and king of the castle. He has attitude, but I guess he's earned it!
Lily is 4 year's old and is the middle in terms of age, but we just adopted her in 2013. She had been used as a breeding dog, so now she is enjoying the life of luxury.
Norman is wild, crazy, and goofy. At 3 year's old, he's the baby of the family. He is cuddly and funny and loves to play.

Unless the swap specifies enveloped, I prefer my cards "naked"! I love having the stamps and postmarks on the card itself.
I love postcards, and I've seen very few that I didn't like. But, if a swap doesn't have a theme, if you are wondering what to send, these are some of my favorite types of cards:
Some of my favorite artists are Modigliani, O'Keeffe, Picasso, Chagall, Cindy Sherman, Barbara Kruger, Mark Rothko, Jacob Lawrence. I like the early 20th Century artists a lot.

I need the following state capital cards, and am looking to complete my collection!
POSTCARD DISLIKES perforated postcards, meat, hunting, hunters, dead animals, animal races, fishing, bull fighting, etc.
In addition to modern postcards, I collect vintage postcards of pugs, pigs (and other farm animals), the University of Chicago, and Ardmore, OK, as well as sent vintage postcards with interesting messages.
I have no problem with Zazzle or Cafe Press postcards - in fact, I like just about all of the postcards I've seen made through these sites. As for other handmade cards - I've been lucky to receive some that are beautifully made. Unfortunately, I have had even more that have not survived the mailing process. They've been afflicted with tears, missing pieces, etc. A few have arrived with the glue making the card wavy or the rubber cement seeping through creating a sticky surface. I suppose I am saying, I am wary about handmade cards and think they require a high production value to get through the postal system.
