Short profile: Cards on my "Favorites" wall are cards I have seen and loved, so it is the best guide to sending a card I like. There are no cards in my favorites that I have already received. BUT! I'm always to receive new and intriguing subjects! Send me something YOU love and guide me on a path to new worlds!
I do NOT expect anyone to look through the entire personal collection to see if I already have a card. Just use my favorites wall as a guideline. Use the others if you want to see some great cards I've received from various sources over the years. Super cure for insomnia!
No need to put in envelope - written & stamped is fine unless it might embarrass my easily-embarrassed postman. Thanks!
I live in Dallas, Texas - a big city in a big state! I am single and am the proverbial "cat lady" of my neighborhood, but right now only two cats own me, Sassy (who lives up to her name) and Doobie (who sometime is chill).
I am a cancer survivor. Not a heroic thing, but if you are facing the monster, I want you to know there is a place waiting for you in our survivor's club.
Please do not ask me to register a card you think is lost. I don't do that.
