Anna-Hannele(or Hannele) is a member in Åland Islands . She has been a member for over 2 years (851 days).
My name is Hannele and I live on the Åland Islands which consists of 6 600 islands between Finland and Sweden in the North Europe. I am an artist. Besides painting I make textile art such as embroidery and patchwork. I´d love to receive postcards with sewing machines or cards related to sewing, quilting, embroidery, knitting or chroceting in some way.
Other kind of cards I´d love to receive is:
- USA flag (no other flags please) with just the flag over the whole card
- Coca-Cola ad cards
- yellow cats
- ATC (artist trading cards - sent in an envelope)
But of course all postcards are welcome. I prefer to receive cards in an envelope so I can give away the stamps to a friend who collects them. I also use some stamps in my art work. I would also be happy if you could send me a page with text from a daily paper , no need for pictures just a piece from a page with text in your own language. I will use them in my artwork as well.
Every week I get lots of requests for direct swap which I can understand as the Åland Islands is a very rare country to get cards from. We have only 5-6 active postcrossers here. I am NOT interested to receive postcards outside the system but I know many postcrossers would really like to have a card from our islands.
Are you one of those? If you have read this far, continue to carefully read my suggestion: I have recently started to make ATC (Artist Trading Cards) and I am looking for someone who would like to exchange ATC cards with me. Do you or someone you know make these cards? These cards are handmade according to certain rules. If you have this kind of card to offer me, I can send one of mine in return or a "normal" postcard. So if you contact me for direct swap, I need to be abel to choose what kind of ATC card I would like to receive. So I need either a link to a page where I can see these cards or I can send my e-mail address to you and you can send a photo of the ATC - cards to my mail.
