*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 25 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.
