Hi, I'm Kristen!
I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri which is pretty much in the center of the United States. I have pen pals all over the world and I love learning about new cultures. I currently work as a marketing analyst.
Some of my favorite things are cats (that's my older cat in my avatar, and I also have a younger cat), dogs (I had a small, very spoiled dog who passed in 2012 and I miss her a lot!), cooking, running (mainly 5k races), traveling, organizing, and reading.
If you're looking for idea on what to send, here are my preferences:
Lord of the Rings
Van Gogh paintings
Angry Birds ice hockey
Thomas Kinkade paintings
birthday-themed in May/June
aurora borealis/northern lights
castles (especially Neuschwanstein Castle!)
animals (especially cats, butterflies, & bald eagles)
any image that is representative of where you come from
Looney Tunes (especially Marvin the Martian and Sylvester the Cat)
Greetings From... (I have the UK one from postallove.com, but any others would be great... even non-postallove ones!)
For those from Ukraine (or anywhere near Ukraine), if you could send me a postcard depicting traditional dress like this - https://yakkiepostcards.shutterfly.com/recd-theme/376#375 - I would be so happy! :)
But I'll be happy with anything at all... homemade, ad cards, whatever! Stickers and drawings are welcome too. The only things I ask that you do not send are nude images, anything with spiders, and underwater photos. Being underwater scares me, so I'd be too uncomfortable to even look at the photo!
I register all postcards I receive right away. I know I get impatient waiting for my cards to be registered, so I don't want to make anyone else impatient. If I haven't registered your card yet, it means I haven't received it. Feel free to double-check with me in case you think you might not have put your ID on the card. :)
