About Me

Hi, my name is Marina.

I was born in the old Jugoslavija (Kosovo) but have lived in the Chicago area most of my adult life. I have been participating in swaps at Postcrossing for some time and really enjoy receiving postcards.

My hobby and occupation is dressmaker. I'm always shopping for fabric and ideas at resale shops and resellers.

I will like any card you would want to send me but I do love cats, small dogs, butterflies, and birds.

Favorite Music

1) Nikolija - Malo 2) Taylor Swift - Style 3) Chainsmokers & Coldplay - Something Just Like this 4) Kate Ryan - Voyage Voyage 5) Coldplay - Clocks 6) Charlie Puth - One Call Away 7) Ed Sheeran - Shape of You 8) Peter Fox - Schuttel Deinen Speck 9) Daughtry - Home

"Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind." -Albert Einstein


"...the moral test of government is how that government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; those who are in the shadows of life; the sick, the needy and the handicapped. " ~ Last Speech of Hubert H. Humphrey

Comment: OMG... I almost lost my mind when I opened your envelope!!! I luvvvvvvvvvd “everything”...lol...where did you get the cardstock ( green with the white flowers) who makes it? And the envelopes, where can I buy these. You made my day...🤗
Response: I get almost everything on-line, usually ebay but sometimes Amazon or etsy. I also shop at Hobby Lobby locally. I am sorry I cannot remember where I get any one specific thing. Glad you liked them.

I received the very beautiful photo album today. I can't thank you enough for being so kind and keeping on top of writing to me and angeling the swap. I love all the pictures and the album itself is so pretty.

P.S. thanks also for the Bat stamp (my fave!) and the old 3c stamps you used on the Mix It Up PC & Stamps envelope!
