Hello Postcross Fan,
My name is Brenda and I am living together with my partner Matthijs in the capital of our 12th province Flevoland called Lelystad. At the moment I am in between jobs. I am doing some volunteer work to do something useful. I am helping refugees with the Dutch language and answering question in the visitor centre of our local nature park.
My hobby's are travelling, walking, cycling, reading and geocaching. Everyday I try to practice Zhi Neng Qigong.
On the back of the postcard I love to receive tips what not to miss in your city/village/country or maybe a book you advice to read. A beautiful drawing is also nice!
If possible I love a colourful stamp or stamp of dogs, ice bears and other animals on the card or envelop.
Below ideas are just to help you choose if you don't know what to send. I am already grateful that you sent me a card to brighten up my day..
You make me smile even more with below postcards:
- illustrated(drawn/painted) Polar bear, Panda or Hippo cards (no photo cards)
Other ideas if you don't know what to send:
- Books/reading animals/reading people
- Chocolate or Nutella cards
- Yoga Animals
- Illustrations on Novel Paper (f.i. Jess Purser / Matt Dinniman)
- Keep Calm cards or Life, Travel & Chocolate quotes
- your national animal,bird, flower, costum or park
- local recipe
- Unofficial Greetings like the Postallove ones
- Wooden Cards
- Seasoncards (Eastern, Birthday, Christmas around that date)
Or have a look in my favourites. Most of them I haven't received.
I do collect also some brands/designers but decided not to mention them here. If you want to know which brands I collect you can have a look in my flickr albums: https://www.flickr.com/photos/52429257@N02/albums
There you can find all the cards I received via postcrossing, Facebook or instagram.
I REALLY REALLY DON'T like cards which have too much dark colours or typical tourist/cityview cards. So please if possible try not to send this types of cards. I know sometimes it is the only card sold in your city. Than you can always try to send your own creation. Selfmade cards are more than welcome.
If you want to make Matthijs happy. Send him a card instead of me with a game. (f.i. Where is Wally/Waldo?, Lali, find the difference, Labyrinth, Sudoku etc)
