Hello! My name is Mattie and I live in San Francisco, CA!
I've been here for around 5 years now - moved here from Pittsburgh, PA and have lived in a few other places. I love to paint and draw - you can visit me on instagram and view my work - @lonepineart
Postcard topics I like (but do not at all feel obligated to send something in these categories):
- art nouveau
- Fairy Tales or fantasy related
- Book Covers
- The Occult
- homemade art cards
- Landscapes of your country
I don't love typical tourist postcards, but if that is all that you can find, its ok!
I love meeting new people and hearing their stories.
Please write more than 'happy postcrossing!'
I want to collect misconceptions that people have - what is a common misconception that people have about your country/city that you want to share?
For example: people think that San Francisco is warm and sunny like typical pictures/videos/etc in California, but it actually is quite chilly all year with the warmest months being September/October and the summer bringing cooler temperatures, fog and wind! It is common to have to wear a coat and hat in June and July :)
If you need another ideas, you can tell me one of the following:
1. Favorite book or most recent book you read
2. Favorite TV show
3. Favorite thing to do as a hobby
4. Favorite trip you have ever been on
5. Favorite quote
Or something in your native language w/English translation!
Random Request from Romania: If you have any folktales that you've heard about the Solomonar, can you share it with me!
PLEASE no advertisements. If you choose a tourist card - I prefer single view, but if you don't have that, then don't worry!
