About Me

I LOVE POSTCARDS. I am very fond of cool postage stamps. I also like nice writing utensils. Walking into a stationery shop will often increase my heart rate. Fave colour is turquoise. Silver is pretty nice, too.

Other things I enjoy: travel, books, writing, stationery, fun office supplies, road trips, photos, letters, museums, street art, funny/friendly/creative people, open highways, mail art, salty chocolate, beaches, forests, trivia, free parking spots, fonts & lettering, my neighbourhood, train tracks & trestles, tiny houses, funny signs, hand-painted signs, movies, flannel sheets, pens that write smoothly, zines, really old mason jars, Quantity/Inkognito/NouvellesImages/Tushita/Fotofolio/Catch/Bizarr postcards, washi tape, and loads of other things.

I really like cats.

I'm pretty sure I've got a paper fetish.

Tea: Fave is Earl Grey. I enjoy most teas except for Chamomile/Roiboos.


Will trade you some amazing mac + cheese for some blank BANKSY postcards. The only ones I've been able to find are the Banksy vs. Bristol Museum Official Postcard Set. Update: I now have one from Fotofolio, and thanks to a generous swapper - another of the Junk Food Caveman!

Update (12-May-2015): I have amassed quite a few more Banksy PCs, thanks to some generous and thoughtful swappers! I'm still collecting them, so if you would like to trade - please send me a message. Thank you!

I'm looking for postcards that show the interior or exterior of theaters, grand opera houses, or cinemas.

I love images of abandoned movie theaters, but am skeptical such postcards exist. I like all kinds of abandoned buildings; they tell so many stories.

  • Vintage/Historical/Retro PCs

  • Animals: any kind of CAT, foxes, squirrels, pigeons, donkeys, octopus, LIONS, anything.

Preferences & Exceptions

I'm not a huge fan of younger kid-type cards, Disney, etc., but I understand that some people like them and that's cool.

I DO like graphic novel type art/comics/etc.

Suggestive postcards are fine. I'm over 21, and then some! Nothing degrading or realistically violent, thanks.

Handmade postcards: I like these, and have been the lucky recipient of some really amazing ones. I've also gotten rectangular-shaped pieces of scrapbook paper with little more than a stamp on them, as well as greeting/note cards cut poorly in half. I'd prefer to not receive the latter types.

If you enjoy taking photographs and turning them into postcards - I always appreciate seeing these.

Comment: O M G I didn't know what hit me! So elaborate, so cool, and with an elephant heralding the envelope's arrival, what's not to love? My head is spinning! Whoa-- --I just turned back toward the booklet for a moment, & noticed something I had entirely missed before: the library borrower's card, with so much detail all its own! I may have to send a (far more simplistic, I'm afraid) snail your way to answer all the questions brought up in this (not-so-) flat "envie" of fun! T H A N K Y O U !
Response: Wow. I'm not sure what to say lol but thank you. It was fun putting this swap together. Snail mail is always welcomed here!!
Comment: I love all the insect cards & the fancy envie. Thank you!!!
Response: You're very welcome. Thank you so much for hosting this swap!!

Comment: I absolutely LOVE those #exploreBC stickers. In fact, I might have to start lurking around tourism bureaus in order to obtain more. I look at it and I feel myself go "OOOOOOOOOOOOH" out of happiness, each and every time. Also love the journaling cards. And the stickers. And the super random-seeming Canada chipboard accents - I have no idea what I will do with them, but they make me happy <3 For my art journaling, For art journaling, I use a spiral-bound notebook from Island Blue (I think they are Van Island only); they have notebooks with thicker paper (made for mixed media, probably available similarly elsewhere). Haha, I also totally lose momentum on things. Just started a new regular journal. Obsessed with it. How long will it last? Who knows! Also, sorry for the long comment. In short: thanks <3 <3
Response: Yay! I'm glad you enjoyed the swap - I had fun putting it together. Thanks for sharing about the journal; I haven't come across Island Blue but I'll keep my eyes open. Hope the new journal is going well!!

Thank you for a nice surprise--the wonderful hand-made envelope, and the long, conjoined-postcard note! Yes, there was a little postcard store in North Beach, apparently long-gone now--but we are talking about the first half of the 90's, here!
