About Gretel...

My name is Gretel. I'm 40 years old, married, and now I have a 7 year old son and an 10 year old daughter. I was very active on here before having my kids, but I took a few years off. Now I'm trying to get them interested in sending real mail. So far, they have little interest but I remember how much I enjoy sending and receiving postcards!

My biggest hobby is working with yarn. I love to knit and crochet. I also have been using my cricut (cutting machine) to cut vinyl and card stock to make all sorts of things. I would like more time for scrap booking. I would also love some cooler mornings to be more productive in my garden. New Jersey's climate has four true seasons but I find that the summers are very hot and muggy.

I have 3 cats and 2 dog and all are rescues.

I especially love receiving postcards with these items:
guinea pigs
dogs (especially corgis and Jack Russell terriers)
yarn, knitting, crochet
gardens, parks, landscapes
pokemon (pikachu for my son, eevee for my daughter)
Avatar the Last Airbender
The Office/Parks and Rec/The Good Place/Brooklyn 99
Miyazaki / Studio Ghibli movies
books, libraries
musicals (broadway and movies)
tourist cards from your area or your travels

I'm not a fan of ad cards with no space for messages. I enjoy the back of the card as much as the front. I prefer cards without envelopes too.

Sometimes I deliberate too long on what card to send out and I have to say that it really doesn't matter to me what I receive. I register all cards I receive within a day of checking my mailbox.
