  • 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/raised stickers , 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, dog or horse racing, circus and that type of thing. I am a huge animal lover. Also no bugs please. : /

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 from New Jersey and miss it!

I have a white toy poodle and an assortment of reptiles:a tortoise, a turtle, and a lizard Lots of fish too! Said goodbye to my mini poodle Daphne on 5/8/19. 😥

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)
This year I’ll be going to Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest and Prague.(that was fantastic!) Italy and Switzerland (postponed!), and Japan. (Three separate trips)

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.

Comment: Thanks a lot for sharing the books you've read with me. I should definitely check them out. I still had lots of books laying in my bookshelf I needed to read, so I limited my book order to 1. One book I wanted to read for over a year lol. I'm also a fan of thrift stores they sell books for such a reasonable price. Here things are going slowly back to normal and that scares me especially as lots of ppl ignore the rules. Stay Safe and I love the bookmark (defiantly going to use it)
Response: Yes, I have enough books for a lifetime but I’m so bad about buying more!!!! Yes, things are pretty much open here...seems like in my general area people are being pretty good but I don’t know if that will last! Let’s hope! Thank you very much for joining!!! : )
Comment: Love all the goodies you sent and what a beautiful envie!! Thank you!!! Brr, sounds cold by you - it's rainy, humid and mid 70s' here - too yucky to be outside so oops, I'll have to craft instead:)
Response: Thank you for the rating! I’m glad you liked the swap. I had fun making the envelope! : ) It finally warmed up here and we had sun and high 80’s-90 all weekend and up until today. It was so nice!! Thanks for hosting this swap!

Comment: Hi Susan! Would have never thought you loved dogs! LOL! Just kidding, as I know you do and I agree that deer are also awesome! Yes, if dogs could talk, you have to wonder what they might be saying, especially with the shut down right now! I am sure they would not be like cats, asking when you are returning to work! LOL! Wishing you all the best and please stay safe! Hugs and Happy Swapping!
Response: Ha haha, it’s so very hard to read me, I know!!! I’m very sure my little old poodle loves us being home all the time - and I can’t say I don’t love spending all this time with her! Thank you so much for joining and for the rating - and you stay safe too!! xoxo

Response: Awww, thank you for your kind words!! Have a great week! xoxo
Comment: I LOVE the postcard and the sticker you put on the back! Dogs are the best! Jedi is getting me thru this. I especially love poodle mixes because of the low shedding! Though Jedi's hair got pretty long before the groomer was able to open back up!
Response: I’m so happy you like the postcard!! I love the non-shedding too! Keeping up with the brushing is a chore but worth it! So glad you have Jedi there for you!! xxxx
