About Courtney...

I live in a small town with a great guy and 3 wonderful cats. I love them all! When not writing postcards, I volunteer as the town librarian. Things I also like:

❤ Snow, rain, clouds, and the feeling of thunder in the air
❤ Hanging railways and rotating restaurants!
❤ Really old things (I wish antiques were not so expensive in Germany!)
❤ Public transit and travel by train or ship
❤ I love cats (but maybe I already mentioned that)

In October 2017 Postcrossing interviewed me for a Postcrossing Spotlight! I was really surprised and flattered, because I think I am an average Postcrosser. Anyway, if you would like to know a little more about me, check it out:

In terms of postcards, I like self-made or store-bought, old or new, and I do not mind duplicates. In other words, if you like the card, I probably will, too. If you need ideas beyond my profile, I especially like:

❤ Things that come in non-standard shapes and sizes
❤ Your own drawing, painting, photography, or things that show your creativity
❤ Things showing how something is made, how things work and supply chain logistics.

I would like to learn a little about you, so the more on the back, the better! If you need an idea, tell me about something that makes you smile. Not a writer? Not a problem! Stamps, decorations and drawings are also good.

My 3 selfish requests...

1. If you like to draw, could you draw me a cat?

2. If (and ONLY if...stamped and written is perfectly fine!) it does not cost more and is convenient for you, could you send the postcard written but in an envelope so it does not get damaged?

3. If you send your card in an envelope and include a children's bookmark from your library or bookstore, I would be grateful. We give these to our readers in the library.

Thank you, I look forward to your card!

P.S. My avatar cat is yawning. No cats were harmed or aggravated in the taking of this picture.

PPS: If I delete your scan I will upload a new one. It may take a day or two, please do not worry.

And one last note: Please use correct postage on your card. I love our postal system and think they deserve our support. American (U.S.) postcrossers - you must use the international rate (not a "Postcard" rate) to send to Germany!
