Hello to all my postcrossing friends!
My name is Cathey and I live in Portland, Oregon. I also travel quite a bit to Los Angeles (where I grew up) and New York. I'm a professional speaker, author and TED coach.
I love and have collected postcards my entire life. I enjoy postcrossing and getting cards and greetings from people all over the world. It's a great way to share an experience with someone that you wouldn't have done otherwise.
Here are the cards I like best:
-Vintage (or black and white)
-Unique postcards (not the standard, highly produced postcards). I love ones that creatively capture some very unique characteristic of the city. I love learning about those characteristics and what makes a city unique.
-Beautiful landscapes (rivers, oceans, and especially waterfalls)
-Architecture (old and/or unique buildings and structures)
-Custom designed cards with art or something created by the postcrosser (I sometimes send out a Portland card I designed)
Things to put on the card:
-Tell me about yourself (where you live, what you do for work or school and what you like to do for fun)
-I love to hear quotes or sayings that you like (example: I got a postcard once that had the quote "Think big, dream big, believe big, and the results will be big.") I'd love to hear one of your favorites.
One last thing:
Please don't put the postcard in an envelope. I like to have the stamp on the postcard with the postmark.
Thanks. I look forward to receiving your card!
