  • 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(s).


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, deco tape, 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 turtle, and lizards. 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.

dearchelsie rated for What Are You Reading? on Jul 28, 2018
Comment: Thank you for the postcard. =) I vowed never to read another Jodi Picoult book again, lol. I have only read "My Sisters Keeper" and it tore my heart apart. I was a mess after reading it. I checked out "Small Great Things". It seemed real interesting, but I get real worked up and devastated with some subject matter. I don't understand how people could hate one another with out ever knowing a person. Why is it so hard to love or care for people? Anywhoo.. Would it be a good read for me? How did you feel after finishing it? Currently I am reading The 49th Mystic by Tedd Dekker. It is my first read by this author.
Response: I thought it was a good book - it has a “tidy” ending which is a pet peeve of mine BUT in this case it was a good, positive thing!! I don’t think how and what she wrote is extremely hard to read through so it might be ok for you to read. It blows my mind too how people can hate so openly, and hate at all. Thanks for joining my swap and I appreciate the rating. : )

Sorry for your bell pepper hatred. Lol. I'd love to go back to Freshii. Lots on their menu I still want to try! 😁

dobie256 on Jul 21, 2018:

Thanks for the darling dobie postcard. Sure makes me miss having a pup (due to my little scardey cats). Haven't been back to Freshii but checked out Arepazo the other day. Their patacon was delicious. Maybe we can do lunch there sometime. Hope you are having a great summer!

thelocalman on Jul 18, 2018:

Hello :) I received the Obi Wan postcard, it's freaking amazing!! Thank you so much ^^ It also arrived very fast, much appreciated :) I haven't seen Solo yet but I plan to. It's just that the reviews were not that great and I go to the cinema for 2-3 movies in the year. I hope I like it :D
