My name is Carita, married and mother of adult son and daughter. Hobbies are Postcrossing, handiwork, art, taking photos, traveling, swim, garden work, SUP summertime and walking with snowshoes when we have enough snow.
Cards I hope to get

- bears, wolfs, foxes, hares, wild pigs...
- inspiring nature and art
Every card you think is amazing or you want to receive it yourself is OK. Please write a date on the card and maybe a sentence in your own language, with translation. I´m looking forward to receive your card with interesting stamps. Don't throw away stamps, send them to me with card in an envelope. Please write id twice on card as it has been smashed on many cards. Thank you already !
Have a nice day or night, wherever you are.
