About G....

I can read cards in either German or English, so feel free to write in either one. :) I am lietuvis, svensk, Polakiem, und spreche ein wenig Deutsch ^_^ (Ich kann es einfacher lesen und schreiben, als es zu sprechen!)

I would be very grateful if you could send me some fabric from your country so I can use it in a quilt! :) https://laridian.dreamwidth.org/2767863.html has the details and https://laridian.dreamwidth.org/tag/quilt:+postcrossing has updates.
I will accept any fabric from any country! :)
UPDATE: The world map is finished! You can see a picture at https://laridian.dreamwidth.org/3118905.html and read about some of the process. Postcrossing did an article about it: https://www.postcrossing.com/blog/2021/04/21/a-postcrossing-world-quilt. I'm still taking fabric for the next project!

Postcards I would really like:
Wildlife, especially birds, of your country.
National monuments or parks of your country.
Space, planets, satellites, space program
Unusual things or places! Especially "roadside" or strange museums and attractions
Anything about the Fallout games
Quilting, embroidery, sewing, fabric arts
Vikings (including sports teams)
Nurses, people dancing, big container ships, submarines
Art: I like Dutch Golden Age painting (Gouden Eeuw), Byzantine, Medieval, Peredvizhniki (Передви́жники), Ива́н Я́ковлевич Били́бин, Art Nouveau and Art Deco.
Halloween/monster cards any time of year: Mummies, skeletons, spiders, snakes, vampires, witches, goblins, devils, ghosts
Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit, Star Wars, Gravity Falls, robot movies, Good Omens (BBC)
Catholic images, saints, Popes
Comic book covers of all kinds

Cool stamps!
National parks - my list is here: https://bit.ly/2QFZxmr

Handmade cards are welcome! Free, ad and food packaging cards also. Envelopes are fine. If you enclose/attach little things like bus or event ticket stubs, sales receipts, old stamps, etc, I would like those very much :) It is OK if you can't handwrite your postcard.

Stickers and washi tape are very welcome, but no raised or puffy stickers, those don't go through the sorting machines well and often get damaged or lost :(

I would love it if you put the date and the weather on your card. If you can use unusual, science or themed stamps/panels, that would be great! These Russian stamps also: https://bit.ly/2IbF0CA

Fauna of Belarus series: I have a page that shows the Fauna of Belarus cards I already have. I would love to get others of the series!: https://laridian.dreamwidth.org/2478080.html

Postcards I would prefer not to get:
Nudity/erotica (tasteful pinups or airplane "nose art" are OK)
Horror/gore
Pet cats/dogs
