About Michelle...

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!
Long version!
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.

Animals - Wild (Just about any, though not crazy about chimpanzees/orangutans), domestic cats (photo or illustrated), Marine

Art -Van Gogh, Cezanne, Cassatt, Klimt, O'Keeffe, James Jean, David Choe, Mark Ryden, Modern, Abstract, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, Realists, Primitive, Folk, Outsider, Steampunk, Illustrators/Cartoonists Gorey, Chaz Addams, or please introduce me to someone you love.

People - Women in art, including pin-ups, Hollywood legends, street people, people who’ve lived a long time, learned a lot about life. No clowns, please. I am truly phobic about them.

You can see that I like much more if you scan through my favorites just a few pages. My collections can be viewed at https://www.flickr.com/photos/39015914@N02/albums.

I host two US/NA Round robins:
USxUS Surprise Me (no themes) https://community.postcrossing.com/t/rr-us-to-us-surprise-me-themeless-fun-from-hawaii-to-maine-we-want-you/3612

and NA Alphabet RR

I appreciate each card that lands in my mailbox!
