About Auli...

I am 58, mother of 4 children. I have 3 adult daughters and 18 years old son. I`m also a grandmother to 4 little girls and 4 boys.
And I have a lovely German malefriend...we met via Postcrossing over 13 years ago and we got engaged in July 2011 and he moved to Finland six years ago. I graduated from nursing school in December 2013 - I'm now a psychiatric nurse and first aid instructor. Before that I milked cows 25 years.

I love movies and rock music: I`m passionate fan of Queen and I like pop, rock and dance music.
I collect DVD`s, CD`s, books, dolls, film magazines and all kind of beautiful items. I also enjoy making 3D cards, shopping, writing letters/e-mails and Postcrossing!

Send me something beautiful with lots of colors! I like art more than landscapes; (but no modern abstract art). If You have a card from this list You would make my day!
*Umbrellas, parasols
*Fantasy, fairies
*Thomas Kinkade, Waterhouse, John Atkinson Grimshaw, Albert Bierstadt, Anne Stokes, Leonid Afremov, Nicoletta Ceccoli (new ones)
*Asian art: Geishas, Maikos, paper lanterns, fans
*National or traditional dresses, masks esp. from Venice
*Nouvelles images, many items in one card
*Coffee and tea cups, colorful glass items, perfume bottles
*Coffee, cakes, cupcakes, desserts, sweets or other food related
*Movie related: actors, film posters
*Colorful birds, parrots, butterflies or drawn cats
*Lighthouses, windmills

...And please No more buildings or city views! I've received more than enough of them: They mean nothing to me unless I've seen the place myself.
And...If You share my hobby and You make 3D-cards, They are very welcome!
Would You spent a moment and take a look at my favorites to get an idea. There are cards which I don't have yet, but I'm dreaming to get them one fine day (Am I lucky today?) I love reading about what You have to say, as much as the postcard itself!
Lately I`ve received many so badly damaged cards ( scratches, even holes...Oh, I hate those mail eating sorting machines!!) that I would really appreciate if You could put the card in an envelope, especially art cards (but this is not a must if it costs You more). It`s like Murphy`s law: The nicer the card is, the worst damages it will get in mail!

I have received lots of swap requests, but unfortunately I don't have time for them now :-(

I also have a profile in Facebook:
