  • POODLES, Collies, Huskies, greyhounds - but I love ALL dogs!

  • DEER,owls,foxes,turtles,rabbits and all woodland animals

  • moose, elk

  • dolphins, seals, seahorses

  • giraffes, elephants

  • donkeys

  • koalas, bats/flying foxes

  • any animals!!

  • Snoopy/Peanuts, Pink Panther, Sanrio , Moomins, Mutts (comic strip)

  • hearts, pears

  • European countries,Japan ,Venice, Italy, NYC

  • art museums

  • books, libraries, reading

  • stationery, greeting cards, note cards, stickers

  • 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.

racheljohnson on Nov 20, 2017:

This is a VERY delayed thank you, but THANK YOU for the adorable card you sent to celebrate the arrival of our twins in July. That was so sweet of you. xoxo

kiddomerriweather on Nov 18, 2017:

Thank you for the SPRUDLA stationery set from IKEA you got me for my November AATW wishlist. I have already started using it. That was so sweet of you to do for me. Thank you for the beautiful sympathy card as well. We're hanging in there. It was very thoughtful of you to send a card. It made me feel loved. <3

ittybittykitty on Nov 8, 2017:

Thank you for the great CPG envie of randomness! So many goodies to play with! :)

shirleyinCA on Nov 7, 2017:

Thank you for a wonderful big blue envelope chock full of random goodies! I love it all -- fun, useful items! I hope this is the original, slow to arrive tag, but if you resent, thank you and should another envelope ever arrive, I will send you a RAK. (No cancellation, so I could not check a date.)

Lyndall on Nov 6, 2017:

I got the happy mail you sent me for the WTA! Thank you so much and thanks for organizing it! xo

Thank you for the Envie of Randomness - so many goodies!


libertylithium on Oct 23, 2017:

Hiya, neigbor! :) Thank you so much for the nice note and lovely goodies for AATW- made my day! I liked the card/postcard so much I think I will hang them up on the wall in my work space! :) Our post office does have a huge selection of stamps- I was very surprised looking at them all when I went there on Saturday!

pkpeace on Oct 21, 2017:

Thanks for the great Birthday card and great stickers for AATW October. I love the pumpkin stickers!!

kiddomerriweather on Oct 21, 2017:

Thank you for the October AATW wishes. I love the Halloween card and stickers. I didn't realize the black cat/jack-o-lantern ones were flocked (fuzzy) until I opened them up. That was a nice surprise. I love R2D2 as a ghost as well. Thank you for the alpaca letter set and the super cute PC as well. Did you happen to purchase that PC? If so, what brand is it? It doesn't say on the card and I'd love to buy some more. Thanks a bunch!
