Hello! My name is Amanda and I am a mother of 4 children. I have 2 girls and 2 boys from ages 13-7! My children LOVE looking at all the postcards we receive. They are all very involved in helping me pick out cards and decorate them as well, especially my youngest one. :)
We live in the city of Wichita Falls, Texas, basically right on the Texas/Oklahoma state line. I love to garden and grow some of our own food. We plant a container garden every spring. Last year we grew eggplant, cantaloupe, potatoes, zucchini, tomatoes, herbs, various types of peppers, and lots of flowers.
I have always been fascinated with mail, stamps, and stickers, ever since I was a little girl! :) I have even worked for the USPS before! I am a stamp collector but I also enjoy using my stamp collection for mail art! I LOVE mail art and seeing all the unique envelopes and decorated postcards! My youngest daughter shares my love of stamps and is always so excited when we get new ones! :)
Here are some suggestions of cards we would really enjoy:
💌 ANYTHING mail related - stamps, post offices, mail boxes, postal illustrations, etc. 💌📮 Cute and unique stamps are very much appreciated!! Even canceled and used stamps, we would love them!
*Halloween cards YEAR ROUND- 🎃 We LOVE Halloween and will be happy to receive one any time of the year. :)

*Easter and Spring postcards 🐰🐣

*please do not feel bad if you do not have a card from my list, after all, those are just some suggestions and I will be happy with whatever you choose to send. :)
**The US postal service sorting machines tend to damage postcards, so if you would like to send your postcard in an envelope, that would be great! Yes, I do keep the envelopes too! :) If not, that's fine as well. Battle scars make them unique right? 😉💕
If you like to draw, I would love if you add a little picture or doodle! I think those are so cute! :) Or if you are like me and have zero artistic talent (lol) Please tell me what is your favorite food? I would love to look up the recipe and try it! :) Or what are some of your favorite things? Or what all did you do today? I love reading your messages as well!
Please stay safe out there and Happy Postcrossing!
