Group - I have created a group for Postcards lovers and will be running weekly/monthly swaps.

Postcards Galore

About Me

My name is Lucy, 37 years old and I collect mainly postcard, but will do the odd different swap.

I am not able to travel much due to money and also mobility issues so I see the world through postcards.

I have a kitty and her name is Nova, she loves CatNip toys, Dreamies, Blankeys and any stray pieces of paper!

I also have a bunny who although isn't big on hay does love hay treats lol

And finally I have 4 hamsters, Chester (male russian dwarf), Marley (female syrian), Snowdrop (male russian dwarf) and Roxy (female syrian).

Favorite Swaps

I love seeing all the different stamps on postcards as well as the actual postcard, please write something about the weather that week, your day or even your pets, just please more than just Happy Swapping or similar.

I enjoy swapping (especially postcards) and although I have been on a break for a number of years I have finally decided to do it again. I only have a small postcard collection but would like to make it grow into a worldwide one. One from each state in the US is something I would like to have but know this will take a long time, it will be a great journey for me along the way though :).

I love Postcards that are... Christmassy, buildings, cute, viewcards, multi viewcards, state cards, map, landmarks, cards with animals on and Greetings from (Official PostalLove ones) will be much appreciated but will enjoy receiving anything else ...but please don't send me anything religious, clowns and advertisement cards as these are not something I am interested in.

I do however love my postcards Naked (written and stamped) please, unless the swap calls for being sent in an envelope :)

I will also be happy to do private swaps (setup on swapbot) for the above postcards :)

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy crafting, mainly handmade cards and I am hoping to get into scrap-booking too. I also enjoy making friendship books (but haven't done any for a while) and would like to get into other crafts when I've got my craft stuff organised.

I would like to try making altered trading cards (ATC's) and other small items (inchies etc.), I have so many idea's and would love to turn them into something great for others to see.

Other Likes/Dislikes

If I ever have to send a swap late (after send by date) I will let you know, I always do my best to send swaps quickly or on time and well packaged where needed.

If you don't receive a swap from me within a reasonable time please contact me before leaving any rating, I will always try to mark a swap sent within a week of sending (or occasionally on the last day).

Comment: Lucy, thank you for the map postcard of Lincolnshire. We also have been getting extremely cold weather for this time of year. Usually this time of year, people start going to the beach. Not this year, they are still hibernating for the bitter cold winter we had. Shirley

Comment: Lucy, hope you are feeling better. We have had a very cold winter here and it is spring and still very cold. It is a bit depressing to still see the brown grass. Hopefully it will warm up soon. Your series of Ladybird books is similar to our Dick and Jane books. Thank you for the postcard. Shirley

Comment: It’s hard to find PC’s. This past summer we drove through all The Prairies and when traveling I always send our grandchildren PC’s from every place we stop. We stopped at many places and couldn’t find any PC’s, 3 provinces and nothing. Finally on our way home I found one that said The Prairies and that was it, didn’t say what province, town/city - just The Prairies. Think in some areas/countries PC’s are a becoming a rare thing 🙁.

"One of the most glorious messes in the world is the mess created in the living room on Christmas day. Don't clean it up too quickly."

"And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store? What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little more? (Dr. Seuss from "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas")

Yes presents, decorations, cookies and good food are a wonderful part of Christmas but we must never forget the true meaning of Christmas. Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
