What a wonderful world we live in, and how nice it is to receive a small note from you.
I have a 26 year old daughter and a 23 year old son. My daughter and granddaughter live across the country, which makes it hard to spoil them. Family is extremely important to me.
I was a widow for a time but recently remarried. My husband is Ghanaian. He is amazing. We are still working through the immigration process.
I recently retired as the Director of our county library district. Previous to this, I was the head of technical services and cataloged books. I was also a high school English teacher, but the grading almost killed me.
I am a small town girl with down-home values. My father was a real cowboy, and I am proud of my heritage.
I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am a child of God, and know that Heavenly Father loves me. He loves you too!
Please tell me something about yourself. I would love the messages to be handwritten. I care more about people than cards. What was the last good book you read? How did you come to do what you do for a job? Who was your first love? How did you fall in love? How did you meet your best friend (If he/or she is not your spouse)? What makes you happy? What are you passionate about?
I would love handmade cards of any type.
I am interested in:
maps of Africa (especially Ghana), or anything to do with Africa
rain and umbrellas
animated drawings of whales
silos and graineries
alphabet cards (handmade would be great)
Bauhaus (If you are from Germany and have anything on this, I would love it.)
cards with "Berlin" on them (the word) as it is my granddaughter's name
peacocks (my husband raises them in Ghana)
Ampelmann or "-------man" from your country
metro or subway maps
the Kennedy family
Henri Cartier-Bresson photographs
octopus or octopi
I don't really care for multi scene or tourist cards.
I would love to hear ideas about how you are displaying or saving the postcards you receive.
I have begun creating my own postcards. If you are interested in seeing them please go to
Happy words and wishes.
