  • POSTCARDS! I like them blank and unwritten. I do not like ad cards unless they show one of my "likes". If I sign up for a written/stamped postcard swap, please send it that way. I collect blank and written postcards! Thank you!

  • I am a Taurus & love Zodiac-related items. Also Year of the Dog from the Chinese Zodiac.

  • NJ Devils, NY Mets.

  • Starbucks and Dunkin' Donuts. I like tea but simple flavors. Please no Earl Grey, and please nothing apple (allergic) or plain cinnamon! (Chai is ok though!) If you have decaf I'll take it!

Favorite Movies

Wizard of Oz

Favorite Books

I will read fiction & non-fiction, but do not like sci-fi or romance. A romance in literary fiction is fine, I just don't like over the top romance books or chick lit.

If you send me a postcard or swap: Tell me a must-read or your personal favorite.


I am not interested in ANYTHING political or religious!! If you send me a holiday card, please keep it non-religious -- snowmen, deer, snowflakes, Snoopy dressed as Santa...that kind of stuff! : )

I do not like/need scrapbooking supplies, ribbons, beads, buttons, paper scraps, craft supplies (not my thing and won't be used). PLEASE no! I DO LOVE rubber stamps. New or used. I am hardly creative with them, make lots of smears, but I still enjoy using them on postcards and letters! ; )

I enjoy postcards sent unwritten in an envelope, but "naked" is fine too - I save all postcards. Whatever's easy - you won't get a complaint from me unless there's a choice on how to send it and I have made a comment. I do not like ad cards unless they somehow relate to any of my "likes".
Typically handmade postcards are not my favorite,but I have a few really cool ones that I've received!

I am allergic to cigarette smoke and cat hair and apples. The one scent I despise is cinnamon! Please, please, please no cinnamon anything!

I am not easily offended by nudity, but please keep it tasteful. I like postcards of pin-ups and the like - nudes in art welcome too. ** Please no animal cruelty,rodeos,hunting, circus and that type of thing. I am a huge animal lover.**

About Me

I live with my husband in Columbus, OH. I got married on 2/29/12; Leap Day! Yes, on purpose. I have no children. I am originally from New Jersey and miss it!

I have 2 white poodles and quite an assortment of reptiles:a tortoise, a turtles, and lizards. Lots and lots of fish too!

I love the ocean and beaches and anything to do with them. I love to travel and try to take one "big" vacation a year. My dream is to make it to Australia and The Maldives. (Of course not in the same trip)

I enjoy making friends here in the USA and all over the world.

Please read

I want to be sure everyone receives what I sent, so PLEASE let me know if you didn't get a swap from me. I will resend if necessary. I rate daily. If I will be away, I will post it on my profile. Please have the courtesy to rate me. This is part of the agreement in a swap! I want to be sure my partner gets what I've sent. Please let me make it right before rating me poorly. I have all letters and packages weighed at the post office, but will try to use stamps whenever possible. This is for fun; it is not life or death!! I am not here to rate poorly! I just want to get something in line with swap requirements in return for what I send! I will always message partners to be sure they got a swap from me if I haven't been rated. I will also let a partner know if I haven't received a swap in a reasonable amount of time. Please do the same for me! Thanks to everyone.
