About Me

Postcards are to be addressed to Bryce. All other swaps (Journals, letters, etc.) are to be addressed to Loretta ~Thank you.

And I promise to send and rate. I usually send early and rate the day I receive. So if I don't rate, I didn't get it and if you don't get the swap item, message me. :)

HI! My name is Loretta and I am kinda crazy about snail mail. I have had regular penpals, who I do swaps with, for several years and I have been a member of postcrossing.com for several years as well. One of those said penpals turned me onto this site. :)

Anyway, other than penpals and the occasional postcard, I have slacked off on sending things. However, I want to start a postcard collection for my son, Bryce. I would like all the postcards to be addressed to him. Our first goal is to get one from every state in the USA for his scrapbook. This is one of the reasons why I created this account.

My Background: I am currently 27, very happily married to my high school sweetheart and loving my life with my new little family. I am a paralegal and I love to write, either journals, letters, stories, poems, etc. We have 3 cats and we are constantly on the go doing something. I am one of those people who can never be still and who is always doing something.

LIKES:

-Punch Studio brand items, such as stationary, cards, journals, photo albums, etc. :)

-antique-ish things like skeleton keys, cameos, wax seals, pocket watches,

-Victorian style,

-books, (fantasy, horror, victorian)

-Alice in Wonderland,

-old letters

-old journals

  • Fav color Blue or purple.. mostly any bright color.

-outdoors

-cats

-Biltmore Estate, Asheville, NC

-St. Augustine, FL

-Castles

-four-leaf clovers

His Background: Bryce was born Oct. 25, 2011 so currently he is nearly two years old and he is a very happy, curious little boy.

LIKES:

-His current favorite color is bright green -trucks, -frogs, -trains, -turtles, -dinosaurs, -kitties
-balloons -Dinosaur Train -Jack and the Neverland Pirates -Bob the Builder

-Spongebob

-fish

-Though he doesn't watch much tv yet, I would like some cartoon postcards for him, maybe Winnie the Pooh or other Disney cards.

I have done multiple swaps through Livejournal communities and postcrossing. I have swapped journals, storybooks, random musing journals, letters, mini-scrapbooks, etc.I take these very seriously and I hope my partners will too as most will be gifts or treasures to my young son. Thank you in advance everyone!

States

Well, since we have started receiving postcards, I am going to start listing the States we have received from till the number of ones we haven't lowers. :) (note- i am only listing ones actually addressed to Bryce and even if we have your state, if your card is cooler than the others, i'll trade it out in his scrapbook. :) so far Bryce has gotten PCs from:

Colorado; Texas; New York; Hawaii; Wyoming; Maryland; Oregon; New Mexico; Indiana; Massachusetts; Missouri; Kansas; South Dakota; Washington; Vermont;

Thank you all for helping with his scrapbook!

kellogg on Jan 26, 2013:

i actually just received it in an surprise envelope swap....and when I saw that you love st. aug i dug it out

savannahjan on Jan 5, 2013:

If you can remember who the host of that missing swap was, you can go check on her profile to see if it is still going, and you just got booted for some reason. If it isn't showing under her "hosting" category, then yes, it got deleted. :)
