Please Join Postcrossing!
I decided to join after hearing wonderful things in other communities. I swap via groups on Livejournal, Yahoo groups, and I'm also on Postcrossing. I'm looking for: friendship books, decos, slams, crams, etc., penpals, postcards, and other fun stuff.
I WOULD LOVE ANYTHING WEDDING-THEMED.
I'm 26 years old. My first baby just turned 2 in April, and that's crazy and exciting. I'm also recently engaged so I'm enthralled with and scared of all things nuptial.
I love all kinds of music, reading non-fiction books, things with Buddha on them, and my favorite color is green. I'm a Virgo. I just quit my job running a very busy restaurant. Now I'm learning how to potty train my son. I like to eat cereal and watch cartoons. I love poetry and hip-hop, and I've been collecting Hello Kitty stuff since I was 5. I used to speak French, but it's really rusty these days.
I like to trade things and hope to find lots of fun new swappers here :-D
TOM PETTY & the Heartbreakers, Social Distortion, Flogging Molly, the Beastie Boys, Sage Francis, Foo Fighters, Blues, Rockabilly, Punk, Hip-Hop
Lately, wedding books & magazines. I would love any new or used. I mostly read Non-Fiction. I love to learn. I also like flipping through magazines. All kinds.
I also have a 2 year old, so any recommendations in that area are always appreciated.
Like everyone, I have a lot, but I tend to watch comedies the most. Wayne's World I love! I'm always looking for new movies to add to my Netflix Queue (sp? something off like that.) I have a large collection of DVDs with Action, Drama, lots of comedy, random cartoons, kung-fu, the one romantic movie I love and bought (Ever After :-P) was borrowed and never returned, so I just have an empty box. 80s & 90s stuff. i'm easily entertained.
Well, I don't watch television in the common way. I watch what's available on netflix (amazing idea btw!) so I'm usually behind. Currently, when I do watch a "show" I'm on Season 5 of Lost (yep...still lost) and I like the Simpsons, Bones, Futurama, Weeds, Say Yes to the Dress (guilty pleasure as I plan for my own day :-D), and LOTS of documentaries.sometimes I'll watch The Daily Show online or something on Adult Swim, haha, but usually i'm stuck watching Thomas the Tank Engine with my son.
Papercrafts, Photography-related, Learning to Scrapbook, Macrame/ Hemp Jewelry/ Friendship Bracelets, beads, Altered Journals/ books, friendship books & decos, decopauge, flower pressing, origami/kirigami
I prefer cards with art on them, like illustrations and paintings, but I love all cards, so I guess it really doesn't matter. Homemade stuff is always welcome.
I'm grateful for all the postcards I receive, but I especially love cards with works of art on them (black and white or color), very colorful graphics (like cartoons, graffiti art, pin-ups, one of my favorite artists is at www.coopstuff.com), and pop culture like movies and music.
I also like religious images, I like images of Buddha, the Virgin Mary (with or without child - like the front of Christmas cards), lotus flowers, saints, pretty much anything.
I love punk rock and hip-hop, poetry, rockabilly, Hello Kitty, recipes. I'm interested in doing recipe swaps, that's something new I've never done before but I love to cook and bake.
I also will take anything Native American/ American Indian themed (but not those cheesy pics of half naked "Indian princesses.") I'd love cards with any kind of native art or things like that (like you might get from a museum.)
If there's a holiday coming up (Halloween, Christmas, Valentine's, Columbus Day, whatever) I would really like some themed postcards. A million bonus points for vintage+themed. (squeal!)
homemade cards are cool too! i'm happy with everything.
i had a lady recently send me a home-made bookmark, and it was such a nice surprise! I love whatever it is you are inclined to make/ send.
Happy Swapping Friends!
Oh, and I haven't had a problem yet (knocks on wood) but it seems the popular thing to do, so if you don't get something from me, let me know. Even if you're just starting to think maybe it's taking too long, just send me a message. I'll send a replacement if necessary.
