About Me


I dislike stickers or washi on the backs of postcards. Now they are cute don't get me wrong, but I collect the cards and it just does not work. The post office rips the cards when they have stickers and if they do make it, they don't fit in the sleeves. I have had to toss so many cards that got ripped or ruined because of stickers and washi

I was a dog trainer before chronic illness stopped that. I am an avid animal lover.

I am Canadian/American living in Kentucky but born and raised in Canada

I have some medical issues that result in pain problems. While I make the best effort possible to write neatly it is not always possible. When having this problem and its not a postcard I will often type my letters. I just wanted to warn people

I love learning about other cultures and seeing pictures (thus the postcard fascination) and items from other lands.

I collect postcards. Normally I can be found on Reddit, FB or Postcrossings doing so. I am pretty new to postcard collecting and am having a blast with it. I always send a card back unless the person just wishes to give me one and does not want one back.

I just found my stamp and coin collection from when I was a kid and I would love to get back into it. I collected mostly foreign stamps and coins. It does not have to be pristine I just like seeing the other types of money and stamps.

My reddit gifts profile (the above url section does not work with https for some reason) https://www.redditgifts.com/profiles/view/nytetears

I love playing Video games. I am taking a break from WOW right now but do play it, Diablo, Minecraft, Wurm and more Children: 3 adult

Married: Yes


Chihuahua Tia

Pomeranian: Hatchi

German Shepherd: Sirus

Cat: Kitty (don't ask she wont answer to anything else, bloody cat!)

Postcard wishlist

I prefer cards written and stamped. and 4/6 or smaller. Big cards are nice but a pain to put into binders.

No Handmade and no stickers on PC please

I ******LOVE****** all postallove GF Cards and the unofficial ones too.

At night cards (you see eyeballs of different animals and it says '__at night' ie: Kentucky at night

Did you know cards,
Famous People,
Greetings from cards both official and unofficial postallove.
Historical locations,
Military bases,
Military cards,
People in daily life,
Presidents (all) Provinces,
Royalty from all countries State Capitals,
UNESCO World Heritage Sites
US Presidents
GF Series Cards FOTW Series Cards Icon Series cards Cards with facts on them. Cards that are written in languages other than English Cards that say the location (big letters are nice but not required) Cards that show stamps/money from your country. I would like cards that show where they are from somewhere on them

I love postcards that show local life, attractions, scenery, parks, buildings.

I really want to collect the 'Greetings From' cards from postalllove but they are hard to come by


I dislike postcards that do not have anything to do with a location. (unless I am signed up specifically for an exchange for them). The reason for this is that I map my cards. When I get a postcard of a kitten, as cute as it is where does it go on the map? It just does not fit in.

For example, pantone postcards, they make no sense to me. they don't show anything they don't tell anything

I am not a fan of the cards in the Animal Box: 100 Postcards by 10 Artists

Please no free or homemade postcards and no stickers on the front of the cards I really prefer no stickers at all but the back is ok if you are twitching and must put a sticker somewhere.

These are just preferences, naturally I will be happy to get any card you send


I will rate as soon as I get the card if possible. please DO write swapbot and the swap. I am on a number of postcard sites and trying to find who sent you the card is a pain without at least a little hint.

I mark sent as soon as it is in the mailbox.

I am happy to do personal exchanges contact me and lets talk.

I try to send out stuff as soon as the swap starts so I don't forget it. If you did not get something you were expecting please contact me and lets work it out. I do not flake


I enjoy all herbal tea and I love trying new ones. I really love to try teas that I can not get in the USA. Something specific to your country.

I am an avid chocolate lover but most chocolate teas do not taste like chocolate so I prefer not to drink them.

I love non-bitter coffee. Costa Rican is my favorite.

I have a K cup machine.

Lost Cards.

6/18/18 I got a very nice black and white Rout 66 card but there is no swap on it and I can not read the name

5/18 A card from Malaysia a replica of a boys and girls week 1936

If this any of these are your card please message me with the swap name

Comment: Very cool postcard (First "talking book")! My neighbor growing up was my age and I was always a little envious of her being able to read books in the dark - I tried to have her teach me Braille, but teaching wasn't really her thing.
Response: I just learned braille myself there is a couple free courses online!

Dropping in to say Hi and Happy New Years! I love looking through people's profiles, as I am still trying to figure out what to say in mine. We watch a lot of the same shows. I love supernatural and have seen the cast a few times at comic con, and have talked to the actors that played Kevin, Loki (stayed at the same hotel the 2nd year) and Cas!
