About Me

Hi there! I'm Jamie. I'm a 30-something, married to the computer geek of my dreams, and mom to one four-year-old boy. I have two dogs, Winnie and Mylee, who are my furry babies. We also have two cats, Oz and Willow, who apologize in advance for any stray strands of cat hair in my swap packages.

Other random "me" facts: I'm an avid postcard and autographed book collector. I love Postcrossing and Kiva. I'm a vegetarian and have been since college. My favorite colors are currently turquoise and bright (non-neon) yellow. I love to travel and do it as often as possible - so far my favorite destinations have been Scotland and Colombia. I'm a native Floridian, but I'm currently residing in Michigan and have lived all over the eastern United States. I'd love to someday live in Central or South America.

I always send out my swaps! If you don't receive a swap from me, please contact me before rating and I'll be happy to resend.

Favorite Music

Pink Floyd. Queen. Ozzy Osbourne. The Who. Alice Cooper. David Bowie. The Postal Service. The Beatles. Cheesy 80s hair bands.

Favorite Books

Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (Douglas Adams). Last Chance to See (Douglas Adams). Tess of the D'Urbervilles (Thomas Hardy). Wonderland Avenue (Danny Sugerman). Good Omens (Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman). Pride and Prejudice (Jane Austen). All the James Herriot books.

Favorite Movies

Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Boondock Saints. Young Guns II. Notting Hill. 180Ëš South. LA Story. Bandits. Travel and nature documentaries.


I love all kinds of postcards and will appreciate anything you want to send my way! However, if you're looking for some ideas, some of my favorites are:

  • Map cards!!
  • UNESCO World Heritage sites
  • Historical buildings or places
  • Castles
  • Signs (Street signs, billboards, neon signs, etc.)
  • Volcanoes, mountains, and other natural scenery
  • Autumn scenes
  • City or street views
  • Ansel Adams
  • Famous sites
  • Absolut Vodka
  • Churches, cathedrals and other religious buildings
  • Interesting buildings or other scenery

If you drew my name for an animal postcard swap, moose, pigs, owls, flamingos, giraffes, goats, penguins, dolphins, and (non-cutesy) dogs are always great options!

Have an interesting non-English ad postcard in your stash? Feel free to send it my way (in an envelope if you wouldn't mind)!

I prefer my postcards to be sent written on and stamped (except for the ad cards mentioned above), but I'm also perfectly happy to receive them in envelopes if the swap calls for it or if you're sending me multiple cards (or even if you just really want to send one to me unwritten!).

Random Stuff Wishlist

Here's a bit of what I love (other than postcards and books, of course!) ... :)

  • Miniature glass and ceramic animals
  • Autographed books
  • Animal Christmas tree ornaments, particularly ones that are handmade, rustic, fair trade, etc.
  • Pigs, moose, flamingos, goats, elephants and owls
  • Photo frames
  • Fine point ballpoint pens
  • Dog & cat treats and toys (for my pets, not me!)
  • Cruelty-free bath stuff
  • Chocolate (except Mars brands)
  • Random trinkets from other countries
  • Kitchen towels
  • Souvenir shot glasses
  • Note cards
  • Stickers
  • Handmade artwork
  • Interesting thrift store finds
  • Fragrant essential oils
  • Envelopes big enough to fit postcards or note cards
  • Packing tape, plain or with funky designs
  • Memo pads (Please, no loose individual sheets ... unless the swap calls for it, of course. Just the mere thought of trying to organize all those little loose bits of paper makes me twitch! :))
  • 4x6 self-laminating pouches
  • Sticky notes
  • Rubber stamps and ink pads
  • Washi tape
  • Colored Sharpies or other permanent markers

Sending a profile based swap and need some decorative/theme ideas? Here are a few I enjoy ...

  • Animals (especially the ones mentioned above)
  • Anything travel related
  • Autumn
  • Van Gogh
  • Tulips and pink lilies
  • Yellow, purple and turquoise (but I love all colors!)
  • Literature and books
  • The Tardis
  • The Ninth Doctor
  • The Union Jack
  • The Great Lakes
  • Ladybugs
  • Telephone booths
  • Cutesy dragons
  • Foreign (non-English) languages
  • Chevron prints
  • Stripes
  • Gray and pink together

Overall, I'm pretty easy to please and I'm sure I'll love whatever you decide to send!
