I live in rural Ottawa, Ontario with my husband, two young adult sons, and two cats, surrounded by cornfields and cows. I love being creative in many forms whether through writing, photography, music or drawing. It makes me come alive.
Lately I've been into making postcards when I see fellow Postcrossers make a specific request for a special card as long as the person doesn't specify they don't like handmade ones. I make them on the computer and print them out so they turn out great. I think handmade cards are wonderful! It's like sending a little piece of yourself out into the world, don't you think?
I also like to make postcards with my photographs since I am a photography enthusiast and take tons of photos of my cats, my dog, my sons, birds, furry friends, sunsets, and landscapes. I love taking photos so it's fun to get them off the computer and make a card!
I have always enjoyed letter writing and pen pals ever since I was a kid. Now I enjoy Facebook and email to make new friends but I still love snail mail. In winter, I have to walk far in the cold to the community mailboxes so it's wonderful to get something in my box. Makes the trip worthwhile!
I love postcards of all kinds and am always happy to receive them. My favourites are ones with cats, birds and art as those are things I really love. I also love seasonal cards for Christmas or other holidays. Any cards are fun to get though! I'm just happy to see something in the mailbox that isn't junk mail or a bill!
I am not fussy and love all cards, especially those sent with the spirit of friendship and love!
