1/3 - HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE! I hope everyone is well and safe. I am currently working on getting the rest of the postcards caught up on ratings. Most of the Christmas Cards are done. I should be finished by the end of the week.
10/24 - I am almost done with my stacks for rating. I should be all caught up by the middle of the week. Things are starting to get busy with the holidays around the corner so I am trying to stay on track with the rating so it doesn't get out of hand. Please let me know if you have not been rated.
2/3 - I have one stack of cards left to rate which I should be finished with this week. If you have not been rated then it is because the swap name is not on the card or it was covered by the PO. It also might not have a name on it. I have come across a couple of those. Also it could have been lost in the mail. Please let me know if you do not have a rating and I will take care of it for you. I still have postcards to give away if anyone is interested.
12/20 - I am working on ratings right now and should be finished within the next couple of days. Some of the Christmas cards either don't have names or don't have the swap name so it is really hard for me to rate those. So they are going in a special pile until I can find which swap they belong to.
9/11- I am all caught up on my ratings. If for some chance you have not been rated then I have not received the swap or have received it without a name or swap ID so that I could rate it. Just message me and let me know if I did not rate you and I will look back on the cards with no names and swap IDs.
7/30 I have been doing a lot of cleaning and organizing during this pandemic and in anticipation of moving within the year. I am going to thin down my postcard collection and want to give them to people who collect them. Anyone who wants a stack of postcards for free, no trades, I will pay the shipping. I will be going through them in about two weeks when the garage is cleaned out and I have time to organize them. All you have to do is message me and let me know if you want a stack of about 150 to 200 miscellaneous postcards. I will be happy to send them to you.
5/22-*****IMPORTANT******** I want to explain why I have a recent 3. Someone recently gave me a 1 without letting me know that they didn't receive a swap. When I messaged this person they finally let me know that the swap had not arrived. I sent a special resend of the swap the same day. However after the swap was received I was then given a 3. I did everything I could to rectify the fact that this swapper had not received this swap once I found out that my swap had been lost in the mail. Most people who have swapped with me before know to message me to let me know that they have not received my swap. Usually this is because it is lost in the mail and not because I have not sent it. I always send out my swaps and always by the due date. Thank you to everyone for understanding my current situation.
Hi Friends, I hope everyone is doing well in this current crisis we are experiencing. I have been pretty much on lockdown except for careful trips to the post office. I am totally caught up on my ratings. If you have not been rated it is probably because the card did not have the swap on it and I couldn't find where it belonged, your name was not on the card or I did not receive it yet. Just let me know and I will search for those that didn't get rated. Also the mail is probably crazy now so I understand if something gets lost. Just let me know. And if you need to be late just let me know because that is never a problem for me.
PLEASE PLEASE message me rather than give me a 1 and I will always send another card out to you. That is never a problem. I never give a 1 without finding out your situation and I hope that you will give me the same consideration. Many times mail gets lost in the post office so even though I have mailed you something it might have been lost.
I have been married for the past 29 years and have two beautiful children, a girl who is 27 and a boy who is 21. Right now I am not working so swapping takes up most of my time. I have gone through some bouts of depression so I do go to therapy once a week. I also like to play bingo. I go to a few games a week. Part of my therapy, my therapist said is to get involved in hobbies so swapping does keep my mind busy. @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
I love postcards and love to have them from all over the world, ones that are representative of the area where one lives. But I love other postcards too.
Some of my hobbies are crocheting and arts and crafts; especially color pencils and color by number pictures. I also like to make jewelry. I also like iris folding and plan to make some cards for a future swap. I like to do ATCs. Lately I have been doing zentangles and watercolor painting. During the pandemic I have been doing paint by numbers. I love it. I have finished a couple of picture and they look a quite nice. I would definitely hang them. It is slow going but very mindful.
My favorite colors are pink, blue and lavender. I also am a big cat lover. I have a 12 year old cat, named Bella. I also love puppies. We have a Yorkie named Mia. She is about 12 years old. She is so cute and loves to play with Bella. I love nature. So that's about all from me. If I think of something else I will add it.
I basically like alternative music and inspirational music. Also yoga type music which I listen to to fall asleep. Also I have gotten into Enya. I also love show tunes.
I am not a big reader, however, I have read a lot of Danielle Steele books. I guess you could call these romance novels. I do read a lot of short stories. They are my favorite type of reading. In fact, I am taking classes that are short story discussions. Other books I like are self-help types. I am hooked on diet books and love religious reading, especially books dealing with Judaism. I like biographies also.
Since this crisis I have been watching a lot of movies. My favorites are comedy/romance/drama. I really liked Moonlight, Green Book and If Beale Street Could Talk. These were excellent movies. I like movies that make me cry. I know that sounds weird but for me it is a release of feelings. I have Directv so I am catching up on movies that I haven't seen in the theater.
Reality, reality and more reality. I can't get enough. The latest sitcoms have really bored me. I love Survivor and have seen all of them.I also love This Is Us. I have really gotten into Law and Order SVU and CSI, all of them, Miami, NY, and Las Vegas. A & E has marathons. I WATCH A LOT OF TV. Most of the time though it is on mostly as white noise while I am cleaning or doing swaps. I also like all of the crime shows. Criminal Minds is a favorite. This season is really good. Also Law and Order SVU. I also love Curb Your Enthusiasm. With so much free time I will probably watch all of the seasons again on HBO NOW.TLC has great shows too and I love the shows on Destination TV. I love the 90 Day Fiance shows and Four Weddings.
I can't tell you how much I love receiving postcards from all over. I like all kinds of scenes from anywhere. I like buildings, special tourist attractions, beaches and lakes, multi-view scenes where there are three to four views of different places on the card, mountain scenes with snow, street scenes with restaurants and shops, and any other that tell me about where someone lives. I also like animal cards, kittens and puppies or dogs, transportation and really any card you send will be special to me. I love greetings on the back, quotes, a little about you or whatever you want to tell me.
I celebrate the Jewish holidays. But I still like to send out cards for Christmas, Valentines Day, Easter, as well as Jewish holidays. I do participate in celebrations that others have for Christmas and even like to have one of the Christmas cookie swaps at my house. We do put up a tree and do Christmas as we always did this for my mother-in-law and the kids got use to doing it. My daughter is perhaps the best tree decorator I know. She should work for a store decorating the trees. I also love postcards that show a city decked out for the holidays or any card that has a holiday on it.
There probably isn't a postcard that I wouldn't like except snakes, lizards and alligators so I would not want anything with that on it. As far as what I would like to swap would be stickers, any kind but especially cats and dogs. I also like scraps of paper especially giftwrap. I do Iris Folding and love different kinds of paper. I also like scrapbook paper. I guess it really depends upon what swap that I choose to be part of. I also like to swap greeting cards that are written on. I never really receive that many cards, especially during Christmas/Hanukkah, but this year was really different with all of the swaps and groups that I belong to. I am so thankful for my postal pals.
