Hello, I am a married stay at home Mom to two wonderful children (8&10)'who are also postcrossers. I was born and raised in Toronto and moved about 75 kms north to the country in 2004. I have always loved geography and travelling and sadly don't do the latter as much as I would like these days. These are some of my favourites cards to receive -
maps, flags, subway maps
cityscapes, famous buildings or monuments
city/state/country parliament/government buidlings
local schools, universities, sports stadiums
landscapes and nature, state/local flowers
birds, ( ♥ the "Fauna of Belarus" series)
Royalty of your country
traditional costumes, festivals, events
Lunar New Year, the zodiac (especially Scorpio)
anything to do with the Olympic Games
anything to do with alphabets/letters, especially the initials S T M W
I also LOVE your typical tourist card, especially multi-views.
Things I am not so fond of - cartoon type cards, animal cards (other than birds or sheeps) and homemade "non-cards" (ie. made from a cereal box). Your own photography or artwork is very much appreciated. Ad-cards if they meet one of my preferences are OK too. I prefer the card to be from the country you live in not from your travels. And lastly, please NO envelopes :) Hope I don't sound picky!
As to what to write - if you like tell me a bit about yourself - your funniest memory, favourite season, favourite cookie or snack, what you have done so far today, where are you when you are writing this card - you name it make me smile !!!
I am still searching for maps from Northwest Territories, Yukon and Nunavut if any fellow Canadians can help me with my quest :)
Please no state maps from the US as my collection is complete - thank you to all who helped :)
Looking forward to seeing your corner of the world,

P.S. I usually write my address upside down at the bottom of each card. It is not intended to have you send me a card, if you do want to swap though please let me know. I put it there in the hopes that if undelivered the card would be returned to me as opposed to being expired. Wishful thinking maybe :)
