To everyone who has sent a postcard for Amy and Levi's wedding: Thank you so very much. Your cards and messages have made me smile and also brought a tear to my eye. Postcrossers are the best people!
All the wedding postcards are here:
I live on the Gulf of Mexico coast and I love the beach. You can check out the beach at https://bamabeachcams.com/sea-n-suds.aspx
I enjoy reading, I watch a lot of movies, and I'm a certified Master Knitter (you can see some of my projects at http://www.ravelry.com/projects/cjhohnke).
I was a working classical musician for over 20 years and I love opera.
I'm interested in any kind of postcard and I'd like to learn about something about the sender or where they live. Or tell me about a good book you have read recently, or your favorite movie, or the movie you can watch over and over again.
Or tell me a secret I promise I won't tell anyone!
A series of random facts about yourself is also a great option.
If you have any "weird" cards, or cards that make you think, "Why did I buy this card?" send them to me.
I'm also interested in:
-Alphonse Mucha cards
-Arthur Rackham art cards
-Lantern Press Poster cards
-Holiday themed cards (Halloween, Christmas, New Year's, or any local holiday)
-Funny or weird cards
US Postcrossers - if you have a postcard of your state's capitol building, send to me! I have 33 state capitol postcards so far. I need: AK, AR, DE, FL, GA, HI, IL, KS, MO, ND, NJ, NM, NV, RI, TN, VA, and WV.
I also love the colorful "Greetings From ..." postcards, either from a state or city.
Still not sure what postcard to send? I've added a month-by-month suggestion list:
January - New Year, new beginnings
February - Maps
March - Spring
April - Flowers
May - Asian art
June - Blue
July - Holidays
August - Sunsets, moon, sky, stars
September - Autumn
October - Spooky, Halloween
November - Thanksgiving, birthday
December - Christmas, Hanukkah, Solstice, seasonal celebrations
There is hope for expired cards: on June 23, 2020 a card I sent to China arrived after 225 days! I've started putting my return address on the postcards I send - perhaps the lost ones will find their way back to me!
