About Killewips...


I signed up for postcrossing because it's such a nice thought to make someone's day a little brighter by sending a postcard :-)

I work for a nature conservancy organisation, PR department. I studied journalism so besides nature (and postcards!) I love to read well written articles in magazines, and I admire brillant photos which tell a story. And, as you see in my photo: I like to dress up and put on fancy make up. Unfortunately this takes too much time for a daily routine, so I love to go crazy with earrings :-)

When I am sending a card, I find it much easier when the person has a list - I love to try and find the "perfect" card for somebody. So I also wrote down some ideas for cards I really enjoy.

But please don't worry if you have nothing matching my ideas! There are many kinds of postcards that I like. In general I love to be surprised by unusual motifs. If you pick a touristy view card, I'd prefer a single view.

My project for the next few months: cards with flamingos.
I love these birds. They look a bit weird, make funny things with their long legs and oh! those pink feathers! So, if you have a card with a flamingo, I'd love to get it (photo, illustration, cartoon, weird, kitschy – anything)

These are themes I love seeing on cards:

- ordinary people doing something (like working, reading, riding a bike)
- anything from the 1920ies / 50ies / 60ies: advertisement, people, fashion, design,...
- black & white photography, vintage reprints
- anything unusual or bizzarre
- maritime things: stormy sea, anchors, mermaids, sailors, busy harbours,...
- New York City (I'd love to go there once!)
- subculture, underground, street art, steam punk
- LGBTI themed
- TV/movie: Doctor Who, Downton Abbey, Gilmore Girls, James Bond
- the 4 seasons - I like all, but autumn is my favourite.
- all around the year: spooky atmosphere, Halloween, Day of the Dead/Dia de los Muertos
- Carnival/Mardi Gras and any other holiday or parade with fancy costumes

- I have a crazy passion for flying pigs :-)
I once was joking, that no one would ever find a card with a flying pig... look what happened: https://flic.kr/s/aHskoNMgS4

- I try to collect state map cards from the US.
Here you can see my little collection: https://flic.kr/s/aHskkXQ1og
(It's not important for me if they're sent from state of origin or even from the US - I just enjoy the image and your message!)

♥♥♥♥ I'm looking forward to your card! ♥♥♥♥
