**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!**
I live in Ithaca, NY with my husband and my dogs (a black pug mix, Walter and a black puggle named Norman.)
I am trying to convince George we need a cat (or two) as well!
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 occassionally 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 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.) I can't say I dislike any colors, though.
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!

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, Chagal, Cindy Sherman, Barbara Kruger, Mark Rothko. I like the early 20th Century artists a lot.
I would love UK swappers who have access to Doctor Who promotional cards for the new series to send one!
From Australian/New Zealand swappers, I'd love a pc with a Kiwi bird!
Unless it's a swap for them, in a sender's choice swap I would prefer no ad cards. But I do sometimes like to sign up for ad card swaps because ad cards can be really cool! In ad card swaps, I especially like cards that advertise non-profit events, ones with interesting designs, or with fun colors.
I have the following state capital cards, and am looking to complete my collection with the missing states.
POSTCARD DISLIKES: 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.
I did not receive the following swaps and would love angels!
