About Jennifer...

I'm just a girl in her master's studies, meanwhile being a huge fan of anything that lives. Biology is not only the subject I study, but also the most important thing in my life. I live with my wonderful cat Shila (avatar) and have 3 species of roaches and 25 tarantulas as pets. (And many carnivorous plants)
I love cooking and do so a lot lately. Unlike my plants, I'm a vegetarian. ;) I like to listen to "true crime" podcasts, watch Forensic Files and love to read and learn about forensics. I volunteer in students' representation and actively act against foodwaste in the "foodsharing" initiative. I also have two jobs, teaching students in semesters below me and as a lab assistant in a medical testing lab. Besides, I don't have much free time and try to spend as much as possible with my friends and, recently, my boyfriend. :)

If you need inspiration for postcard themes, here are some types I especially like. But these are just suggestions.

plants (botany!), any animals (insects, reptiles and amphibians are very welcome! A tarantula card would make my day!), fungi, lichens, scientific things, natural history, anatomy..
protection of the environment
maximum cards and mail-themed stuff
fantasy, medieval and victorian eras
female nudes and pin-ups
fun facts or cards with a lot of information on them (regarding any topic)
gothic-ish art, tattoos
unusual shapes
actual tourist cards from the Arctic and Antarctic / tundra
something about your country and culture, tourist cards/viewcards, holidays of your country (at the time they occur)

I'm totally open to cool ad cards or cards that aren't from your country. I'd be super happy about stickers and washi tape on cards! I'm also willing to swap stickers, just send me a message!
Interesting suggestion from the forum: If you have some at hand, stick fruit produce stickers on the card. This way, I can compare them between countries. (Could be fun! :) )

Inspiration for what to write: Tell me three very random facts about yourself. Or write something about your day! Or your plans for the week. Anything will do. :)
If you have insects, tarantulas, amphibians or reptiles as pets, please tell me about them! :)

Have a nice day
