***My account is currently set "inactive" pending travel. If you have a card traveling to me, please do not worry! I will be registering cards up until I leave and then again as soon as I return***
A note before I start: Please use correct postage on your card. I love our postal system and think they deserve our support. American postcrossers - you must use the international rate (not a "Postcard" rate) to send to Germany!
A bit about me: I live in a small town with a great guy and 3 wonderful cats. I love them all! I also like snow, rain, clouds, and the feeling of thunder in the air. When not writing postcards, I volunteer as the town librarian. I try to travel by train or ship whenever I can. I am fascinated by how things are made and how things work. In October 2017 Postcrossing interviewed me for a Postcrossing Spotlight! I was really surprised and flattered, because I think I am a pretty average Postcrosser. Anyway, if you would like to know a little more about me, check it out: https://www.postcrossing.com/blog/2017/10/23/postcrossing-spotlight-colorfulcourtney-in-germany
For card themes, I especially like:
❤ hanging railways, public transit, heavy transport (ships, trucks, planes etc.)
❤ factories (inside or out) and industrial things
❤ handmade cards
❤ pre-1960 cards (please, only if you can send them written but in an envelope. They get really torn up by the sorting machines.)
❤ odd shapes and sizes and cards made from something other than paper
❤ tourist cards from your favorite place - anywhere in the world, especially with storms/rain/clouds/snow
❤ cat cards (adult cats/illustrations)
These are just ideas--I like many other types of cards, and I do not mind duplicates. If you like the card, I probably will, too.
The more on the back, the better! If you need an idea, tell me about something that makes you smile, or about your favorite office supply. 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.
A last note: If I delete your scan I will upload a new one. It may take a day or two, please do not worry.
