*If you receive a postcard from any US Postcrosser that has a long sticker with a barcode on it, you can easily take it off without damaging the card.*
I moved to Florida from Ohio 27 years ago. Since then I found a love for the ocean as the sight & sound of the waves rolling in is very peaceful & relaxing for me. (Plus I like to collect seashells.)
I enjoy many creative hobbies, including scrapbooking, making cards, coloring, painting, Zentangle, & photography (especially flowers & other nature scenes). I also enjoy reading, journaling, traveling, listening to music, Snoopy, & collecting quotes.

** Special Request: My brother turns 50 in December. I'd love to get postcards written for him with birthday messages (but my name in the address portion). His name is Kevin and some themes he would love: KISS (the band), Ohio State Football, Cleveland Sports, Dallas Cowboys, Darth Vader, Boba Fett, or any original Star Wars trilogy related cards, and of course Birthday postcards! Thanks! **
