Receive postcards

About Claire...

I'm 48 years old and neuroatypical (autistic), and wouldn't choose to be any other age or way to be. I'm a mama of two (ages 19 and 16) and have been with my beloved best friend husband for 25 years. I love to laugh and joke, but can also be very serious. I love sunglasses and have about 20 pairs that I cycle through. I have two black cats that are siblings and a huge menacing calico who despises them. I drink massive amounts of Lime LaCroix every single day. I am a grateful member of Al-Anon and Adult Children of Alcoholics and will gladly hear about and share on these topics if anyone wishes. I work at a library.

My hobbies include needlepoint, cross stitch, cooking, reading, crafting, traveling, SLEEPING, and listening to music. I'm originally from the Detroit, Michigan area but have been living in the south for 15 years now. I make dioramas out of televisions and cigar boxes and am working on several right now, one is a vintage circus, one is a library dedicated to Maria Sybilla Merian, and one is going to be Shackleton's Endurance ship.

**Postcard Likes:**
I love ALL postcards: funny, pretty, silly, weird, antique, homemade, cities, states, countries, provinces, et al. I will love **any** postcards from anywhere happily as I love to get mail! I prefer artsy or funny postcards over touristy, but I will be happy to receive any postcard, naked or in an envie, vintage or new or ad. I definitely enjoy handmade postcards, too. You can send me all the weird or "gross" postcards, bugs and creepy creatures, scary women, wtf cards, and I will be ecstatic.

**Specific topics I like:**
nature and natural history,
aboriginal/first nations art,
EYES and eye imagery,
birds, especially blue jays and cardinals,
science fiction,
the supernatural,
huge things,
tiny things,
folk art, outsider art,
strange tourist destinations or attractions
insects, esp houseflies or beetles
warrior women,
witches/witchy things/paganism,
radical progressive politics,
things about voting,
amazing women politicians,
Frida Kahlo,
aspergers/aspie/autism positive (not Autism Speaks),
gingko trees,
images of women,
cacti and succulents,
Supernatural (Destiel forever),
Doctor Who, Jodie Whittaker or Tom Baker

I will not be offended by much of anything unless it's hateful or bigoted, and will love anything profane or funny or weird or kitschy or bizarre.
