About Joyce...

Every postcard I receive delights me so my favorites list is of postcards I do not have. If you don't have one of those, don't worry...just send any card you like.

The list below is just to make things easier for you not demands. I appreciate every card someone chooses.

I like views of country/city, history, architecture, archaeology, art (but not abstract, manga or anime), landscapes, geologic formations, stars, aurora borealis, rainbows, animals, birds, butterflies, bees, flowers, trees,tall ships (masted ships), fountains, clocks, bells, candles, royalty, people in national regalia/costume, national celebrations/festivals, national holidays, especially Christmas and New Year (religious and non-religious), spirituality (any kind), postcards with inspirational or funny quotations (I translate them using Google translate but if the characters are non-roman I would need the translations written on the back), the colour green and anything sparkly. I like printed postcards of your own photos too.

I prefer stamped postcards and no envelopes. I am also not a fan of extra blank cards, loose stamps, transit tickets, tea etc.

Because I have a hard time seeing them, please don't use yellow or lime green markers for the ID numbers.

I am not a stamp collector but I appreciate the stamps used as much as the postcards. I DO NOT send (and waste) postcards just for the stamps (this isn't a stampcrossing club after all).

I LOVE Christmas, so even if we are not close yet...I would love to get Christmas postcards (I attach them to my fridge so I can look at them all of December and into January). Please just traditional or religious ones...I am not fond of the 'weird/sarcastic' ones.

My interests include visiting people, cooking, flower gardening, hiking, nature photography, calligraphy, reading non-fiction books and genealogy. I work in a college library. Moose Jaw is a small city in South-central Saskatchewan and is located on what is known as Prairie ecology. I love Postcrossing and learning about other places, art and cultures of our awesome world.

Thank You,

One of the most commonly asked questions is, “How did Moose Jaw get its name?”
The most likely theory is that the name comes from a Cree word, “Moosegaw”, which means ‘warm breezes’.
