About Me

I only want to preface this so it doesn't get lost in the text... please do not send postcard in an envelope or tchotchke with the postcard... just the postcard written and stamped makes me happy.

NOTE TO ACTIVE SWAPPERS: I have a facebook group that is a whole lot of fun called PCUSA which stands for Postcards USA Written and Stamped Only. If you are an active swapper (not a looky loo who just joins groups and sits there) please come join in on the fun. Just request to join and fill out the questionnaire AND TELL ME YOUR SWAPBOT NAME AS WELL.

I just also want to mention that I hope that you all dont rate others on a stupid postmark.... for real???? Postmarks are not always an accurate way of detecting if a card is late and sometimes, 6 out of 10 times, A postcard I receive doesnt even have a postmark. Please look at the date that your partner sent the card that is a better indicator. Thank you....jussayin.

My name is Diane and I live in Anoka MN. l am a native born Jersey girl my heart will always be there.... I have also lived in Kenosha Wisconsin aka Ken-nowhere, Wish-there-was-something to do-in, as locals call it. I hated it there with a passion. I love Anoka 11 months out of the year as it is called the Halloween capital of the world and celebrates this dumb day all month long with a lot of parades and other nonsense; but November-September I love it here.

My hobbies are crocheting amigurumi but I have slowed that down to a near stop due to my arthritis in my neck and shoulders. I love watching Hulu, and Paramount plus, tv series and movies are one of my winter escapes. I love to organize things and big projects are my favorite, I am always up for the challenge.

I have a new hobby and that is painting on cd's... it is a lot of tedious prep work that I have done all summer and finally have them ready for painting.

I will also paint rocks that I have collected over the summer. I have to plan my winters and keep busy I love projects and hate being bored.

I have been collecting postcards since October 2013 when I got started in Postcrossing. com group. I remember being so excited to get my first postcard...and it came all the way from TEXAS ( I really thought it was going to come from overseas.)

I believe that postcards should be sent written and stamped only; that is the way the were intended to be sent.

I DO NOT LIKE HOMEMADE cards so please please please do not send me one and keep them for those swaps that are for that type.

ALL real postcards will get a heart; I don't collect certain themes and I like all real postcards. I only ask that is NOT distasteful, questionable, grotesque or clowns. Thank you.

Comment: Thank you for the vintage postcard. I remember when the cokes came in bottles. There is a special taste of the coke when it comes in the bottle. Unforgetable.

Comment: I received your card today. Thank you so much. I received the same card from somebody else also today for the swap. What are the chances of two people sending the same thing?
Response: wow that is rare... last week I got 3 flamingo cards...not the same one but in the same day. That's quite odd too.
