Hello fellow postcrosser!
my name is Mirjam, I live in Dublin the capital city of Ireland with my husband and our two daughters (age 12 and 10)
I have been living here for over 28 years and love this country but grew up in the Netherlands.
I trained as an artist and now spend most of my time working with children and adults teaching art.
I try to keep one day a week for my own creativity, currently this is drawing,collage, painting (watercolours), mail art and some other arts and crafts. (batik, calligraphy, beadwork...)
All cards are welcome!
I love the surprise of any card but if you need some direction in picking here is my list:
Flowers, botanical drawings
Traditional dress/ tracht/ klederdracht
Year of the... Monkey, Rooster, Dog, Pig, Rat, Ox, Tiger any of the Lunar Zodiac Animals
Crafts from your country
