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.
For card themes, I especially like (in reverse alphabetical order):
❤❤ transit and logistics
❤ tourist cards from your favorite place - anywhere in the world
❤ 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
❤❤❤❤ hanging railways
❤ handmade cards
❤❤ factories (inside or out)
❤ 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. Please tell me about the card you have picked for me. What does it show? Why did you choose it? If you need other ideas, tell me something that makes you smile. Not a writer? No problem! Stamps, decorations and drawings are also good.
3 selfish requests...
1. 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?
2. 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.
3. If you like to draw, could you draw me a cat?
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.
P.P.S. Please use correct postage. I love our postal system and think they deserve our support!
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.
