Is it too late to join you all? I hope not :-)

I really was kind of lost about what themes to say I don't want...I'm pretty versatile, I love angels but I don't like cards with strong religious or political focal points.

Oh darn - I just this morning mailed a set of starters with an angel to vampiress_rose. Looked all through everyone's member page to try to find someone who likes angels and couldn't find anyone who had it listed. Maybe vampiress will send them to you as the third~

Welcome to the group!

Guess who finally got the Gelli Plate I've been wanting?! Me!!! I'm so excited. Be prepared everyone for lots of starter sets going out. Oh this is going to be fun!

Pixi
01-18-2015, 05:17 PM
Okay, this may seem like a stupid question...but I just want to make sure before I send it off. Buddy cards are done the same way has the 3 player cards, correct? When finished by the second person, it is then sent back to the 1st person who sent it in the first place?

I never received any of these before, and I recently received a beautiful set to do. :)

kentuckydakota
01-18-2015, 06:13 PM
Yes, it's just like the RR's but with 2 players. When you finish it, you keep one and send the other home to the player who started it.

I have several sets of cards to work on. And 4 I need to give iTraders for.

I am going to try and find some patterns tonight and get started stitching tomorrow.


Still have one card to give iTraders after the 2 hour wait!

Allegrae

Just finished this set (Sarnie/Vampiress/Me). Decided to flip the card and do one with the background upside-down. Going to keep that one for myself.

Those turned out quite nicely, allegrae :-)

Here are a few I worked on today. The angel isn't complete, still needs to be finished, I was second on it but it was too pretty not to share. Started by stonefx, so glad she sent it mutt way! :-)

The others were started by castlequeen and worked on by lindagiese and myself.

DeniseMDupree

Thanks for sharing!
Anybody was talking about angels lately... I love angels! Just in case....;)

Beckster
01-23-2015, 10:44 AM
I just finished up a bunch of sets and have a few more to go...I have a zillion itraders to leave and think I'd Luke to go homers only until I get caught up.

xstitcher
01-24-2015, 07:59 PM
Update has been sent moving Beckster to homers.

Everybody got it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BekaH
01-26-2015, 04:10 PM
So I just left like 20 itraders and I'm still not caught up LOL.

Meanwhile, I know we said something awhile back about not keeping up with our starters but there ARE a couple of sets I'm really curious if anyone has seen lately...

A set with peppers and book pages?
Snowman set?
That beautiful watercolor and text set?
Set with the word Namaste on them?

ferretgirl
01-28-2015, 09:17 AM

Sarah's mom

01-28-2015, 02:20 PM
And one last set of RRs and a set of Buddy cards:

This is Heymaggie, me and mom... love it!
154436

And the buddy cards, Heymaggie and mom:
154437

We also worked on some sets as second players and made a ton of starters.... and then we started a mail marathon, starting with about ten letters that were already stuffed enough to send (need to use up all the weight we can send with a stamp!), and we also have several more sitting on my desk that are waiting for another set or so before we will send.
Wowzie! XD

01-31-2015, 09:55 PM
Wow some great cards, and some of them will come home to me. Yeah. I wanted to say I also bought some of that cute cat vintage paper, but not sure what I will do with it yet.

katelnorth
02-01-2015, 07:37 PM
Nice work everyone! Worked on three starters I had today, from katiea707, Della and Sarah; all these will go in the post with some homers tomorrow...but I'm not saying to whom! ;)

DeniseMDupree

CastleQueen5
02-06-2015, 01:15 AM
I mailed a bucket load of envelopes today. I think I tagged almost everyone, but the newbies. Mainly cause I had some homers etc so I mass mailed. Everyone check your mailboxes in a few days.

I plan to hit all the newbies this week.

Pixi
02-06-2015, 04:52 PM
Received starters and finishers today from Sarah's Mom and prayer_at_night...will get those done soon. :)

I have one I need to leave iTrader for! that was worked on by Sarah's Mom, me and Sarnie. ;)

I have one set to finish from Allegrae, and Karin...

Still here...working on cards as they come in...still have one set to finish, but I know exactly what I'm gonna do...almost finished w/ my i traders. Have to wait a couple of hours for HeyMaggie's second one. Hi everyone...love what I'm seeing.

MACE
02-07-2015, 09:10 PM
I'm still here I just work 6 days last week so I don't have a lot of time for art right now but don't make me homers

BekaH
02-09-2015, 08:49 PM
Everyone, please note my username change. It's now BekaH, and that might be important for xstitcher also, for the records :-)

Anyways, here's a finished card worked on by heymaggie, pixi, and myself. I really love how it turned out :-)

xstitcher
02-09-2015, 10:31 PM
Yep, I need to get it changed on the list.

I will wait a few days before I send it in case anyone else wants to make a change.

02-10-2015, 09:29 PM
Hey y'all, prayer and I have been watching for a Harry Potter themed set that I can't remember who I sent it to for 3rd player. Not trying to rush anyone, just wondering if it's still in play or if it disappeared forever with one of our dropouts. If someone has it in their stash could you drop us a quick note? Thanks all. :)

BekaH
02-10-2015, 10:01 PM
Has anyone seen or heard from deepdarkhana? She used to be here all the time, I have not seen her in months. Also, I still have several sets I sent out as starters that I'm anticipating returns of. If you could let me know if you have anything I've started, that would be awesome :-)

xstitcher
02-10-2015, 11:32 PM
According to her profile she was on today but has not posted anything since some time in December. She is still on the active list and I have not heard anything from her.

Della
02-11-2015, 12:34 AM
Hi everyone! I know..........long time no see..:eek: I just got 2 great sets from Castle and about a week ago, a couple of cool sets from Pixi!! I also have several sets that are from before the crust of the earth cooled, so anyone on pins about where their missing sets are, I may very well be the guilty party!!!:policeman:

ferretgirl
02-11-2015, 12:35 AM
She posted on one of the boards that she was going to be taking a break for the holidays & that she'd let everyone know when she came back. I think it was on the "Being Gone For A While" board....

ferretgirl
02-11-2015, 12:37 AM
Got a great homer from CastleQueen5 (I'll post a picture soon) & a very pretty starter set from her, as well. For some reason I've been in a flowery mood=) This ATC was worked on by Sarah's Mom, me & CastleQueen5. I'll have some mail going out to you in the next day or so, CastleQueen5....

ferretgirl
02-11-2015, 09:31 AM
Okay, got another homer going out to CastleQueen5 & a horsey starter set. Here is the homer:

ferretgirl
02-11-2015, 09:32 AM
I have a starter set that I want to send out to someone that wants to work on a more challenging set. The theme is butterflies but like I said, it will be challenging. Anyone interested?

Della, I have a few homers headed your way in the next couple of days. Will also include a starter set....

ferretgirl
02-11-2015, 01:15 PM
Wow! I am kind of on a roll now.... Here is an ATC worked on by LauraM540, Della & myself:

ferretgirl
02-11-2015, 01:16 PM
Kate, Will have a homer gong out to you in the next couple of days, as well. Will post pic before I send it...

Della

Della, get with the system girlfriend, LOL!

Yeah, a system overhaul is DEFINATLY long overdue!!! :biglaugh: BTW, with that in mind, I need a personal secretary somethin' awful.....any volunteers will soon immensely regret that they ever thought of volunteering.....not exactly a sunny prospect!!!:eek::swoon:;):unsure:

Della
02-12-2015, 05:30 AM
Collette, AWSOME batch of cards, especially like how that summer/flower card turned out!! Looking forward to your starters! :)

More fun mail! :D
Today mom and I got two sets to finish - one with a fun whimsical flower that is from Nancy and mrubyjean, and another that is kind of industrial/steampunky from heymaggie and Vicky O. :)
Thanks ladies! :D

ferretgirl
02-17-2015, 10:48 AM
katelnorth, I am going to be sending you a Homer that you. Della & I worked on. I will go ahead & send to Della so that you don't have to send her's back to the US. Easier that way, I think... I'll probably throw in a starter set, too....

Pixi
02-17-2015, 08:19 PM
Same here...I have a Homer for Karin ( Sarah's Mom) that she, mmbyjean, and I have worked on. I will also send Martha's to her, and your's Karin back to you with some others. :)

i don't want to resend and fill up mailboxes.

MACE
02-21-2015, 04:04 PM
AlornJr, CSIGeek and I are doing cards today. You can take geek and alorn off homers if they are on there.

xstitcher
02-21-2015, 08:33 PM
sent another update to everyone except Chardonnay1965

I finally pulled patterns, thread and fabric together to finish all the cards I have. Going to start stitching on them as soon as I get off here and maybe in a week or so I can get them sent on to the next players or home.

MACE
02-22-2015, 02:06 AM
A lot of you gals should see overdue itraders. I still owe some back can't leave for 2 more hours so for another day!

Two sets we finished lately:

this one is from heymaggie, lindagiese and me

Wow I love both of those Prayer:) very nice

MACE
02-22-2015, 10:02 PM
I had so many sets to work on, I sent them out without scanning them. Hope you girls like them.

BekaH
02-23-2015, 10:39 PM
Lol.

I do need starters.

I recently mailed a few sets to della to work on :-)

MACE
02-23-2015, 11:53 PM
I still have more backlogs, but send away! I'm catching up!

MACE
02-24-2015, 07:43 PM
Today I worked on a few ATC's. I finished an ATC for StoneFX and Pixi pictured below. It was kind of neat that I had a smaller butterfly of the same type Pixi had added, and I had some background that matched StoneFx's alcohol wash pretty well. I think it looks cool. :)

I also did the second and firsts on 2 sets and sent them to Prayer by night.

Well actually they are on my kitchen table, but tomorrow AlornJr is coming over so I'll be getting them mailed tomorrow.

Mace

BekaH
02-24-2015, 10:47 PM
I received the butterfly starter from collette today. I had a lot of fun with it. I think it'll turn out beautifully.

Then I got on a roll with starters, and made four sets. These will go out tomorrow to three ladies.

DeniseMDupree
02-24-2015, 11:32 PM
I was forwarded some starters (sent from LauraM540, created by DeepDarkHanna).These were the first I've received so I'm excited :jiggy:

MACE
02-25-2015, 08:55 PM
I finished up a set that Castlequeen and Kentucky worked on. I didn't realize until the other 2 cards were done that I was short one E. I'll run to Michael's and put that on mine at a later date. I kept that one for myself and sent Castle a starter.

Allegrae
02-26-2015, 02:52 PM
Those are pretty, Mace! Just finished this set (katiea707/katelnorth/me):

We got more sets to work on and some homers - awesome, we love happy mail! :D

Mace sent me a set to finish and a set of starters - lovely cards thank you!
AlornJr sent mom two different sets of homers (autumnal fairies on one and forest animals on the other set), as well as a cool set to finish!
And Heymaggie sent me a beautiful Geisha starter set and two different homers - love them! <3

mrubyjean
03-06-2015, 06:00 PM
Sent out homers for two sets that were a little too bulky to scan well --
a red-and-green abstract set by DeniseMDupree, heymaggie and me and
a purple butterfly-themed set byStone FX, vick302000 and me.

I also received a wonderful crow/text starter from Elena which I worked on and sent on

DeniseMDupree
03-07-2015, 12:15 AM

MACE
03-07-2015, 01:22 AM
Finished a card started by CastleQueen, 2nd by HeyMaggie, and I finished it off with a green ribbon and the fish.

Was so much fun finding something to go with the mermaid.

MACE
03-07-2015, 01:23 AM
Does anyone know where to buy more carboard like things to stick on atc cards? Example the fish I put in my last post.
I've already looked at Hobby Lobby and Michaels, unless I'm looking in the wrong section.

I'm lacking imaginitivity with my sticker collection now, and want to put more thought into cards (not saying that stickers can't)

CastleQueen5
03-07-2015, 02:08 AM
I got a Snoopy set from Mace that I will be mailing off soon,

I have envelopes for Teresa, has a homer and a starter
Allegrae, starter and maybe a home, it is sealed
Amber, lots of homers,
Martha a homer or 2
Karin 2 sets
Nancy a few homers and a starter
Vicky some homers and a set

CastleQueen5

Do any of you remember that maybe a year or 2 ago, I started doing CRRR with a 3 decks of playing cards? I kept notes on who I sent the starters set to. That doesnt mean much. Well I am missing about 12 cards 3 from each suit. I do realize that this is suppose to be a Random thing, but I wondered if any of the new players or old players would like to help me finish up the deck? That part could be random. I could not tell you what I am sending. The suits kinda had themes. One set had maps for a background, one set was all vintage images, one set was tea or postage stamps or both and one was just scrappy stuff.

Thank you all, I went and organized all my playing cards and pulled out the suits etc I need. I will be mailing monday after I get the backgrounds started. I saved my notes on what each card started out like, so some I can duplicate, some I cant. No biggie, but it will be great to have the whole deck finished.

MACE
03-08-2015, 05:21 PM
So we just leave the corners free, right?

Hey guys,
So art day with alornjr is a hectic day! We just didn't have time to scan every set we did, but rest assured you're probably in one of the envelopes pictured if we got one!

The first set I worked on was a buddy card from Maggie (I also sent you a buddy set back) so that one got a picture. The rest of you gals will have to wait.

Also Gumbek you got a starter from each of us, and Alorn went through my file to send stuff to ppl she hadn't sent in awhile. Mrubyjean I think you were one :)

Btw Gumbek remember there is no time limit, so don't look at this as a J-O-B .. you will probably get TONS in the beginning :)

Castle was the 8 travel also, I got 2 cards and one had a map so it was easy, the other I wasn't sure on.

I am not sure about the other set of cards. I just put 2 in each envelope. Theme isnt too important for the sets. I know just one suit did have all maps for backgrounds. But the some missing numbers I just could not duplicate. The main goal is to get a whole deck of CRRR cards

Sent an updated list with several changes and a new addition!

This time 3 players, Chardonnay1965, DeepDarkHana and Sarnie did not get the update as their mailboxes were full.

Welcome to Shades!!!!!!
Elena and xstitcher are coming back to play
DeniseMDupree made some changes to her no list
there is a change to lafaver55's address.

I did not think about checking the last dates everyone was on until after I sent the new list so there could be someone who has not been on for a couple of months and still on the active list.

Since it seems like cards are disappearing lately it is probably a good idea to check a profile if you don't remember seeing someone on line for awhile and unless you know why they are not active maybe not send to the inactive players. After all when we send out cards it is not only our card and work but one other persons who is affected, too.

And what MACE said about user names on the back. It really does help all of us if it is there.

Great :-) I don't really collect apcs specifically, but to me they're just like another atc to put in my binder with awesome art on them. I've seen many that have caught my eye that I've traded for, just not building a deck or anything. I can see the appeal to it though. If the cards are kept flat, how cool would it be to play a game of cards with friends and have your deck have awesome different art on every card? To me, it just seems like a lot to keep up with though as to what decks and suits I would have and need. But I'll definitely work on them :-) :-)

Fossil has not been on for a month but i sent a pm with the hope she will come on, see it and take care of it.

i suggest if you have cards for her and another player, send the other player their card and hold on to hers until i get a good address.

1 last post for awhile............

I finally have all the cards in my possession finished!!!:jiggy:

They are ready to go to the post office the next time I leave my house which will be tonight or tomorrow.

There were a lot of cards where I was 3rd so several of you will be getting cards I bet you thought were lost back soon.

There were several where I was the 2nd one as well.

And because sometimes I made things I didn't use after I made them I started a few new ones, so I have a few starters going out as well.

Now I am going to give as many iTraders as I can and come back for the rest in a few hours.

I was wondering do all 3 cards have to be the same, or can they be different?

Sarah's mom
03-26-2015, 07:42 AM
All three cards should be alike in general but they can be a little different. For example: each one has a piece of text on it but the words are different or the text is the same but has a different position on the card. Or: All cards have a (different) flower...

Buuuuuut: Please look at the players list! I know that x-sticher wants to get only cards that are exactly identical. :yes:

xstitcher
03-26-2015, 12:11 PM

Thank you for remembering that! Although they don't have to be exactly identical, pretty similar is a preference.

I will work on cards that are not but I really do like them close to the same. I realize it is hard to get 3 of the same things all the time so if they have a bit different text or flowers or something like that, it is still the spirit of the same card. For example I worked on a set that had faces on them. They were different faces, but all the same color scheme, close to the same size and placed in the same spot on each card.

To me a round robin is 1 card worked on by at least 3 players so the idea needs to be the same. If all 3 cards are completely different but maybe the same theme I think you might as well be trading individual cards. For example a set of 3 cards with a different composer with a musical instrument on each one. They all relate to music but to me that is a set of cards and not 1 card worked on by 3 people. Just one of my quirks...........

Shades, I think different media artists use different fixtures, and it's not required. I use mainly just a glue stick, or a hot glue gun for those tougher or heavier things. Sometimes I will use mod podge but it's usually just for added effect. Now if you're using oils, Or encaustics or charcoal, some of those I'm not familiar with, you'd need to ask around. .

I never really know how you start typing something so personal visible to anyone who might stumble upon this post. Although we are strangers in the sense that we have never met, I consider so many of you buddies. Art buddies.

I thought it was time to let you know, that I have early stage breast cancer. And I will be having a double Mastectomy April 23, as this is the correct treatment for my diagnosis. FYI, I have cancer in 2 spots on the right breast and can not save this breast, so in the interest of removing most of the chance of cancer in the other side this is the right treatment. I do realize that the chances are slight, but I was also told 80% of all these microcalcification are not cancer and here I am defying the odds. I also have 2 ladies dying from Breast cancer that come to my food bank, and a friend you chose the other option and she did get cancer on the other side years later.

Good news NO chemo, no radiation, maybe no drugs post op, like tamoxifen, even though my cancer has estrogen and progesterone receptors. I will be doing breast reconstruction, but omg this is also not any small procedure, it is a series of surgeries.

Just so you know I learned that they TATTOO the aerola on. Tattoo! OUCH! Me with a Tattoo How bad a$$ is that? This part is also not covered by insurance, but that is 8 months away. Yes, that is how long this takes.

In the future if anyone is so bold to ask if my new non sagging breasts are real, I plan to say they are not imaginary and they are cancer free. I might even get a breast cancer ribbon right over the right side.

I dont drink smoke use drugs, or have a history of breast cancer in my family. I have done my mammos since I was 40. I am now 48. Please ladies if you are over due for your mammo make your appointment today. It could save your life.


Guess who is going on Homers for the 1st time ever since I joined this group? Me yep me.

I had to remind my doctor this week that it was time for another mamo and it somehow was a surprise to her. It was left out of my medical info.
Anyway, hugs to you. We'll miss you while you're homered :wubclub:

Oh dear, CastleQueen. That is a lot but you seem very strong and ready to handle it head on. My aunt was just diagnosed a few months ago - never smoked, doesn't drink, is vegetarian, and very minor history of breast cancer in our family (she will be starting radiation soon). I am so happy that things are looking up for your situation! I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. :wubclub:

Shades it was a greeting card, and not a postcard? Sometimes I get sturdy backings from swappers, but it is usually junk mail stuff cut/ upcycled to the business sized envelope. If there was not a note on it to you, then I would mail it on with the cards, I bet it is to protect the cards.

I'm sure it's fine for you to keep it shades. It was probably just to protect the cards so they would get to you. If you are mailing them on, just package them up how you would normally to ensure their safe travel and you should be good to go. There's no rule on sending on anything that came with the cards.

Worked on all the bits I have hanging around at the moment (and two sets of cards for swaps - how with it am I?) - so I have two things to mail on - both sets to finish which I intend to send with new starters as well (some homers, too, but that's different).

Normally I don't ask who wants what, but as I can't mail anything until next week anyway thanks to the Easter bank holiday weekend, thought I'd see if there's anyone desperate for stuff to work on... Any takers?

Oh the greeting card is probably just to protect the cards, I like to use them too. I usually just use greeting cards when I mail only one card. I tape the ATC to the card. If you have no use for it Shades use it again. IF I were to send ATCs in a note card. greeting card, I wold not expect the card back. I tend to send these swaps in the 3 slotted plastic coverings. I do hope to get the cards back in those plastic coverings, but sometimes, it is better to just mail a homer in a single sleeve which is fine too.
some people put an address label on their 3 slotted protects, I make sure I return those to them.

I will be mailing cards in my possesions MOnday or Tuesday.

I made 3 sets of Altered playing cards in the JACKs, with John Cusack on it from the Movie the Jack bull last night. I decided to take my APC into my own hands. I will probably send one set to Nancy cause she told me she likes Jack cards.

Have you ever seen the movie The Jack Bull? It is a western Written by John's dad. It was ok, but I kinda thought the character that John played was very flawed. He was bent on revenge and in the end there was only tragedy for all.

Shades, sometimes I put RRs and ATCs in greeting cards just to protect the ATC.

I found some cards that I don't think I ever gave iTraders for so if you get one that makes you scratch your head and say what!!!!!!!!! that is why.

I'm sure you will do just fine.

You can send one set to me if you want as I have all my finished and am ready to start again.

I don't like to show the cards I was 2nd player on, but just realised that among my recently worked-on stuff, there was a finish, which is this one: Elena, then Martha, then me. Always happy to work on a card with a crow...

I love those Allegrae, thanks for posting photos. That paper was shelf liner or drawer liner that I cut up, and had way too many pieces.

I'm always confused what you mean when you say "... did not get it" ?

xstitcher
04-11-2015, 11:31 AM
it means their mailbox is full and the pm with the new list did not get sent to them.

Ah ok, thanks for clarifying :-)

I mailed out a bunch of envelopes yesterday, as I was finishing up cards, sending homer etc.

I am doing this from memory, but maggie, vicky, sandye, tanya, beka H, Denise, nancy,Tandy, Sarah

then of course I got home and found I had more cards in the mail. I will be working on those soon.

Just letting everyone know I am still alive and breathing! lol Not ready to come back in yet active...but will be sending out hopefully soon, those CRRR's that I had received before I went to homer's.

Also, In case any of you are wondering...I have cards that I have just now received also at my sister's house from Vic302000...I did not know they were here, until I arrived today.

I will have in signature to remind everyone to ask for my address before sending...You never know which month I will be where, and usually I tell xstitcher a week or two ahead of time, so that everyone knows in plenty of time.

Thank you all for working with me on this and letting me continue to participate anyway...it means a lot! <3 You guys are great! Looking forward to getting back full swing when we get back from our honeymoon in June. <3

So, when I opened my mailbox today I found an orange envelope, well at least part of one. It is postmarked Phoenix, AZ and marked CRRR. The whole back of the envelope and all of it's contents were gone. I'm so sorry to whoever sent it. Whatever was inside is lost forever. Here is a picture of exactly what I received:

Oh no! How awful!

BekaH
04-17-2015, 06:04 PM
Well I got this envelope in. Mail today... completely destroyed. It's only half an envelope! The only way I know it's from this group was the crrr in upper left hand corner.... maybe someone will recognize it.

This is why I put so much packing tape on my envelopes. This is the second time I've received an envelope like this in a week... neither one had tape on them.

I am freaking amazed. You guys have to see this. Castle I hope you don't mind me posting .... the survivability of mail is something sometimes .. check out the images. The envelope was slit all the way on the left, bottom, and top. Clinging to the final side (the only thing keeping the envelope from being two pieces were the following items. I just want to make sure everything was here that you wanted. Also got the message about writing a message on the postcard.

CQ, I'm thinking the carnage happened at your post office before they went their separate ways. You could take the pics down to your post office and ask them if their was a machine malfunction and if they possibly still have the contents of these. I've never seen so many go at once before! :eek:

Yikes - getting some ready for mailing right now - adding extra tape!

Wow. That is insane! Three in a row?!

04-17-2015, 10:19 PM
You guys arent gonna believe this but I too, got a piece of an orange envelope and 2 sets of starters in the mail today (Castlequeen5). The kicker is my name/address is no where on this piece of orange envelope or the cards but they reached me.

04-18-2015, 01:34 AM
Maybe the post office has something against orange? :eek: I received homers and starters today from CastleQueen5 in a zebra envelope - with no damage to the envelope at all.

I will be mailing out several sets on Monday with extra tape! Don't know who I am sending to yet, let me know if you need/want something to work on :)

Hey gypsy. The PO probably has you memorized. They have told me on numerous times that sorting for me goes slow so they can look at the art. (I do envies too). Yeah the post office may hate orange, but I know Alornjrs came in one piece.

BekaH
04-18-2015, 01:24 PM
So strange!

Denise, you can send me.some to work.on :-)

CastleQueen5
04-18-2015, 06:24 PM
That is so weird, cause the pink envelopes survived. I got those envies from my friend Betty, I did all those card Tuesday. She uses a different postal sub station than I do. Makes me wonder.

MACE
04-18-2015, 08:50 PM
Yeah its strange

CastleQueen5

The thing, is I am pretty sure all of our post office sub stations, use the same centralized sorting center.

I have a Post office one mile from my house, 19th ave and Cactus The one Betty uses, is on 19th ave and Union Hills, This is the PO ,that delivers and picks up her mail, it is about 3 miles from house, I like my PO better, as it is not as busy as Betty's. Easier to get in an out of too.
