About Kerrie...

Hello new Postcrossing friend! Thank you for reading my profile!

I will LOVE any card you choose for me. But just in case you’d like some suggestions, here are some of my favorites:

*Handmade cards! I truly adore getting these. If you are a photographer, artist, or crafter of any kind, PLEASE share your creativity with me. Just be sure your creation is strong enough to go through the mail!
*Art of any kind, but especially fantasy art (and especially dragons!). I also really love the works of the romantic painters, especially John William Waterhouse.
*Animals of any kind, especially dogs
*Ancient or giant trees
*Beautiful flowers, plants, and mushrooms
*Mountains and waterfalls
*Space and celestial
*Yarn, knitting, weaving, and other fiber or bead crafts
*Inspirational words—I’m particularly fond of the mystic poets Rumi and Hafiz
*Any place or thing that YOU love and find inspiring. I’d especially enjoy it if you write about why you picked what you picked!

And now a little bit more about me…

My name is Kerrie. I live in the beautiful city of Albuquerque, New Mexico, right in the heart of the American Southwest. I love to read (especially fantasy and science fiction), knit, crochet, and spend time with my handsome eight-year-old border collie MacKenna. For many years I worked as writer; you can find my book “Life, The Universe, and Houseplants”, all about my adventures growing indoor plants, at Amazon. However, a few years ago I started a grand new adventure: college! I was so nervous about going to college for the first time at the age of 39, but it’s been a fantastic experience so far. I can’t believe all the great things I’ve learned and all the wonderful people I’ve met, both younger and older. I’m hoping to complete my bachelor’s in finance and eventually pursue an MBA.

In 2017, I was honored to be named a Postcrossing Ambassador thanks to an essay about Postcrossing I wrote for an American newspaper. You can read it here: https://www.csmonitor.com/The-Culture/The-Home-Forum/2017/1004/Postal-diplomacy

I have a rare autoimmune disorder called Behcet’s Disease…at least it’s rare in the United States; I understand it’s much more common elsewhere in the world. If you have any experience with it, I’d love to hear from you.

Looking forward to your cards!
