About Me

Address updated as of 9/1/2014 now in NC

NOTICE If you have not received my swap, please let me know so I can resend. All swaps I signed up for were mailed when I marked sent.

Hi, I am a mom of 2 girls: one 27 year old and a 16 year old. I have a BS in Forensic Chemistry with minors in French and Biological Sci.

Favorite Music

My favorite music includes Nirvana, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Alison Krauss, Dean Martin, Soundgarden, Audioslave, CHRIS CORNELL! and really all types of music.

Favorite Books

I love reading. It is mainly what I will do when I have free time. I like to read pretty much anything and always have since I learned when I was a kid. Most of my presents from relatives as a child were gift cards to the book store. I like browsing for hours and making a serendipitous discovery. Currently I have read many detective, supernatural, and young adult series and read the newest as they are published.

Favorite Television

On the rare occasions that I have time to watch tv these days I will watch Amazing Race, FX Network's Justified, and Sons of Anarchy, AMC's The Walking Dead, Californication, Shameless, Once Upon a Time, Grimm, Downton Abbey.

^^ wow that's old! I watch pretty much nothing. Sometimes Netflix - shows I like are Stranger Things, Lost in Space, The Crown, GLOW, etc...

Favorite Movies

I like Cary Grant movies. Katherine Hepburn is good. I pretty much just like going to see any movie that looks interesting.

Favorite Crafts

I mainly quilt. I recently joined International Union of Mail Artists and am participating in the group MailArt365. www.mailart365.blogspot.com

mainly making handmade postcards.


I collect United States Patriotic items. Examples are a George Washington tobacco tin, a 7-UP and Pepsi bottle from the bicentennial, Liberty bells, Statue of Liberty. My Christmas tree is historical figures/ patriotic ornaments. Red, white and blue!

Also coins, stamps, MAP postcards (country, state, province, city, region) , patches.

The state PCs I have are the basic state map outline with seal or other symbols. I would be interested in states I already have if they are map cards with say for example a ND Lewis and Clark map card or OK or CA American Indian tribe map card so specialty or historical fact map cards. Also I have seen pictures of National Park map cards and regional map cards which would be nice.

I need the following Canadian Province Maps:

New Foundland


NW Territories


Likes /Dislikes

I like: Tulips




Dark chocolate

Autumn leaves


My favorite colors are shades of blue and red. I also like black.

I like the following fabric line Moda Prairie Paisley. I am working on projects in those two lines so fat quarters or 5 inch charm packs will not be turned away :)

I do not like:


Nail Polish

Scented bath and body items

These are not worn by me as I am sensitive due to working with and around chemicals; and they make my skin itch.

white chocolate (not really chocolate)

I do not drink tea or coffee.


Comment: Hi; we’re practically neighbors. I usually read bestsellers, novels, and some memoirs. I mostly read on my tablet and borrow ebooks from the local library.
Comment: Thanks for the great postcard. I did not have this one. Happy swapping, Linda

Hey you! Yep, I'm still around! I've taken a hiatus or four over the years but am still grinding away. I of course think you should come back too! Though it is VERY different than 5+ years ago, in some good ways and in some bad ways.

Thank you for the lovely postcard from the tag in US TAG aficionados!

choke on Sep 25, 2013:

for supporting The Postcard Place with your awesomeness!

choke on Sep 22, 2013:

Gah, I missed your anniversary by a whole week! DOH! Well, everything I said below is still true, except that of course I meant 'you' and not 'your'. I received the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace card that you sent for the USTA Tourist Postcard tag, thank you so much! It's another great addition to my facts collection, I really appreciate it :)

choke on Sep 4, 2013:

Thanks! It's mostly all been glorious :) I see yours is coming up as well. I'll probably miss it too, so congrats in advance! I'm really happy to have met your on here.

Hope it is SEW special

jamiebee1 on May 17, 2012:

You're welcome! I hope it makes a nice addition to your collection. :)

Figured this was as good of a place as any to thank you once again for the RAS MT capitol card :) I really appreciate you sending it! I don't feel so bad now, Tristan also asked to see the midnight showing of the Hunger Games and I was like "pfft - go to bed, you're crazy!". He's 12! I know the ranger card is here somewhere but not in my pile, so now I'm worried I have lost some cards in my house. Ah well, they'll turn up eventually I'm sure so you'll hear from me again soon :) Thanks again for being such a great friend!
