About Me

I'm currently living in the Twin Cities metro area but am originally from the East Coast. I have lived in the Metro DC area for the majority of my life. But have also lived in Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, Indiana, and Wisconsin.

I am addicted to postcrossing and found this site when I was searching for other postcard swaps. Eager to get started. I like all sorts of postcards but I like vertical ones. As well as Kaj cards or Moomin cards from Finland.

Favorite Books

I read a lot. I'm currently reading the Sookie Stackhouse series. (Vampires) I like mysteries like those written by Sue Grafton, the Scarpetta series by Patricia Cornwell, and Daniel Silva. I also enjoy books by Laura Childs, I read them as soon as they come out. I also like Diane Mott Davidson's culinary mysteries as well. I have also read a few knitting mysteries and have enjoyed them too.

Favorite Movies

I enjoy most types of movies except for horror. I like comedies and dramas and the latest pixar movie. I really enjoyed WallE and Ratatouille. But I've also liked the Bourne Series as well as Indiana Jones.

Favorite Television

Top Chef, Gossip Girl, Lost, How I Met Your Mother, Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men, Chuck, House, America's Next Top Model, No Reservation; Anthony Bourdain, Design Star, Color Splash, Divine Design, and Barefoot Contessa to name a few shows.

Favorite Music

I'm like the Doors, Eagles, Beatles, Erasure, Depeche Mode, Yaz, Billy Joel, Chicago, Talking Heads, REM, Live, Madonna and ABBA.

I like classical and can tolerate most genres but i don't like twangy country. But some people like Carrie Underwood I like.

Favorite Postcards

I like Moomin, Kaj cards as well as Wallace & Gromit. I like some handmade cards but don't have that ability to give them in return. I don't like free ad cards. I like architecture and art as well as cartoon characters.

I am starting to collect state/country map cards. I have all the states from the the US. Would love to get some international map cards :)

Other Favorites

I like english breakfast tea, Love taking afternoon tea and have taken my nieces to it once. I also like Oonlong or Formosa teas. I also love chai tea. I wish the trader joes near me still sold their chocolate chai.

I also like to bake and decorate cakes. I generally make 10 to 12 kinds of cookies at Christmas time.

I love peanut butter so any candy with that is great. I also like skittles but not super sour kinds. I also like starburst. I only like milk chocolate. I like peanuts, almonds and hazelnuts w/ chocolate. As well as chocolate mixed with caramel and/or peanut butter. No coconut please :) and no dark chocolate. Thanks!

Hello there,

I just visited the forum at the mapcard lovers group page and saw under the offer and requests for mapcards that you were interested in mapcards for many states including Florida.

If you are still interested in a mapcard from Florida please let me know. I would really like the chance to trade, seeing how I don't have one from Wisconsin yet. :)

Hey lady!

i have read Laurell K's Vampire series...it is FABULOUS i think you'll enjoy it! I haven't started the Stackhouse series yet but i've heard good things! Can't wait to dive into that one...maybe after i read the last 3 in the Merideth Gentry Series and finish up "The Mists of Avalon" which is what i'm reading currently!

Hi :) Hope you are enjoying whats left of the weekend. I too love postcards, I just got a boxset of the suicide bunny postcards they are too funny. One of my favorite things ever are trading postcards especially homemade and "weird" ones. I have a few penpals that I write and we try and send the most crazy postcards we can make to each other, so much fun , never know maybe we'll fine each other as partners in a postcard swap :) P.S The movie WallE Rocked!!! one of the best out there I think. Have a sweet one, Freckleface.

Leave Me A Comment Swap :-) Hello Jennifer, It looks like we have alot in common, I love alot of the same TV shows and music as you and I live in Northern Virginia right now. We live about 25 minutes or so outside of DC. My husband is in the AF and we just moved here. Here is a link to a cute You Tube Wallace and Gromit video. There is whole series on You Tube for Cracking Contraptions by Wallace and Gromit. They are too cute! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6cxAuU5nReU&feature=SeriesPlayList&p=70BE847613D4B3B6

Enjoy and Happy Swapping, Claudine
