Hi! My name is Lisa and I'm from Boise, Idaho. 📮 I work as a registered nurse at a local hospital. I was in the Navy for 8 years where I worked as a crane operator on a submarine drydock and then as a Hospital Corpsman; it was a wonderful experience!
I've always been a "mail junky" and used to send away for obscure free stuff when I was a kid just so I could get the mail and the stamp! I still love beautiful stamps on letters. Sometimes when I can't match a postcard to the person I can at least try to attach stamps that match the Postcrosser's profile. I get a small sense of victory when that happens :)
I like beautiful paper, origami, crafts, fabric, and quilting (although I never have time to actually cut into my fabric--I hoard it). I like to dabble in everything; I tell my husband that my craft room should be written in my last will and testament!
When I'm not inside, I like to garden (read: pull weeds), geocache (username is lisaclown), ride my bicycle, go fishing, hike or swim. Instead of learning how to keep honeybees, I've started Mason bee habitats. My cherry tree quadrupled the number of cherries on it last spring because of the amount of Mason bees pollinating it, and, they very likely won't sting (they have stingers... but I think you would have to provoke them for a sting to happen).
For postcard ideas, I have a pretty good sense of humor; I love animals (we have 2 pugs as pets and we just brought home a little farm kitten who wanted to be a house cat), nature, history, reading, libraries, deserted mansions, castles, ghost towns, beautiful architecture, mailboxes, stamps, art, cute illustrations, science, space, crafts, oceans, islands, clouds, weather, and all things BRITISH! If you want to send a homemade postcard to someone--I'm your person! Also, Halloween is my FAVORITE holiday! If you have a Halloween card, send it my way—any day of the year! I think I have developed a crush on Harry Styles... so any cards with him...
I will love and appreciate any postcard you send, making my day a little brighter!
Thank you and peace-🏳️🌈 Lisa
