2:29 pm - Hello there


I'm not new to the website. I found it in 2005. I'm new to the livejournal community. Send me a message if you want to exchange postal stuff. I'm really creative. Cool beans.

Someone once created a website very similar to PostcardX and I was wondering if anyone knew of the name of this website? It had the same concept, you posted your address and listed a bunch of things you were interested in. You had to log in and what not. And, I am pretty sure it wasn't http://sendthingsto.us/ because this one ended with .com or .net

7:30 pm - I need a lot of birthday cards for my girlfriend!


My girlfriend is a post-fan and she has a birthday at the 6th of October. Her name is Lucy. I decided to make her a surprise. I want her to receive a lot of postcards from all over the world at her birthday. Could you help me, please? I ask you just to send any postcard you want to her. We have two and a half weeks more, so we have enough time to send a card and, I hope, it will be received in time!

I think you can also write a postcard in your language, if you want; it would be more interesting. We can understand your postcard in English, Russian, German, Italian, Spanish and French. But if you speak another language - we will find a man, who will translate the text for us!

Here is my website with the address: http://yartsew.narod.ru/postcrossing.html

I will be happy if you send her a postcard. I think she will be happy to receive it. Let us make a great suprise together!

Thank you!

3:46 pm - What's new at PhoenixFireDesigns.etsy.com!

Well, first off, after spending the ENTIRE summer on medications trying to get myself safe enough for surgery, looks like my hysterectomy will be on October 5th.

For those who've missed the updates, I'm 34 and over Memorial Day weekend, I went into the ER in massive pain, only to discover my uterus is full of tumors. Literally pounds of them. So much in fact, I was unsafe for surgery. I have over $10,000 in hospital bills and trying to raise the final $600 I need for surgery. (Of a total of $2,600 total.)

I've been on UNPAID medical leave this whole time (my last paycheck was June 3rd) so trying to pay my regular bills has been a challenge, let alone raising EXTRA money for surgery.

So here's a look at what's new in my shop. Sales help me with living expenses, medical bills and surgery costs. All the info can be found here.

Even if you can't buy something, just passing on the link in your twitter, facebook, blog, etc. is greatly appreciated!

Thank you for your support!

12:44 pm - Medical Fundraising for Needed Surgery

You can follow the progress of visits, current health, etc on my blog with my hysterectomy tag but this is just a summary of the situation. The full details can also be found here: http://giveneyestosee.com/blog/hysterectomy/

Memorial Day Weekend I went into the ER after two days of non-stop severe pain. Many tests and an overnight stay later, it turns out that my uterus is full of tumors.I have multiple softball and multiple baseball sized fibroid tumors and equally large cysts. The total mass is approximately the size of a basketball.

I was on a fast-track for a hysterectomy when my OB/GYN discovered that it was worse then initially believed and I'm too high risk for surgery. High risk is 250 grams of tumors. I'm at over 1,200 grams. I am now on a shot to induce medical menopause in order to attempt to shrink the tumors prior to surgery. The larger the tumors, the more complicated and lengthy the surgery, the more time I will be under anesthesia, the more complications and blood transfusions I will need. So we're trying to get them shrunk at least half.

I work a part-time job that does NOT give me insurance. I also do NOT get paid for any time off period. So I’m already out two weeks of pay with many more to come. (When I do have surgery, I'll be out 4 weeks in unpaid recovery as well.) I have already applied for and been denied financial and medical assistance by the state. I’m asking anyone who can help for your support as a result.

I need a total of $2,600 just to pay my OB/GYN, $1,400 of which must be up front before the surgery. This does NOT include the hospital, anesthesiologist, radiology, etc. It also does NOT include the fees for the office visits and tests pre-op. (I’ve already spend $463 on those as of June 7th)

I have set up a Donation Fund here: http://tiny.cc/hysterectomy

I am also trying to promote my own store front as replacement income during this period: http://PhoenixFireDesigns.etsy.com/

My friends are also helping me set up a second shop full of donated items. You can find that here: http://PhoenixFunds.etsy.com/

If you could look around and see if there's something you'd like to buy, pass on my links, donate a hand crafted item, craft supplies or a vintage item for the fundraiser shop or make a donation - any of it would be helpful and appreciated. The more people pass on my information, links and story, the more I can hopefully raise the funds I need.

Thank you for your support!

Hi everyone!
I have a huge huge favour to ask of you. It's my godson birthday soon. His name is Bogdan and he's a very special boy! I'd like to make him a special present. If you could write him a birthday card with a short poem, a nursery rhyme or a childrens song, which is very typical and popular in your country, something every child knows,I'd be very grateful. Please write it in the original language with an english translation.
In return I can send you a card with russian art (communist style if you'd like)))) or view and I'll send several beautiful uncanceled stamps in the envelope.

Please comment, if you 're interested and thanks in advance!

What do people use these days for postcarding?

It seems like sendsomething.net is not very active.

I have literally hundreds of postcards lying around, and I need people to send them to!

6:33 pm - Mail Pls!

Anyone up for a mini package trade?

I've got some stuff worth trading out (a couple of buttons, cute erasers, some stationary pads I don't use, etc) and, well, I'm in the mood for some mail :)

Only really looking for one or two people at the moment. (Bonus in if you live in Hawaii. I have a Thing for Hawaii.)

current mood: hopeful

5:22 am - my passed; my past.


i remember receiving this post-card; i remember texting you from the salon, on valium, feeling so dreamy while i was coifed. i remember your poetic garble coming through clear as could be, scribbled out onto this post card.
i remember that thick august night, the following broken heart, and then an ode to "dashed hopes and broken dreams."
