I'm writing this top because people keep telling me they hadn't missed it in my wall of text but it's DEFINITELY NOT the most important thing... the most important thing is hearing from YOU :).
When it doesn't cost you more, I prefer my card unwritten in an envelope. I understand some people don't like to send cards this way, and I'm totally fine with written cards as well, I just collect them unwritten. I've been asked why and I don't really know, I've always done it this way, it seems so much "cleaner" and better to me. Please don't apologize if you don't send it this way, it's just a little preference, no big deal :).
Oh and if you can add a little note, it'd be so much better than just an ID-code on the envelope. I collect my cards unwritten but I still wanna hear about YOU.
Hello everyone :)
I'm 34 years old, French-speaking Belgian woman, and obviously I collect postcards!
I try not to be too picky, although I must admit I'm not really crazy about conventional tourist postcards.
My fave cards would be about cupcakes (those are my very faves but not that easy to find, uh?), sweets and candy, food in general, recipes, fruits & vegetables, hearts, retro women, tea time or coffee time, peonies, hydrangea, Jetoy, Gorjuss (like this one, for example: http://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/CZ-276123), seals, elephants, fairy tales, basically anything cute and/or different.
I also love Pre-Raphaelite art and purple is my favourite colour.
If you want, you can have a look at my favourites to get a feeling of what I really LOVE: http://www.postcrossing.com/user/Ombre/gallery/favourites
Feel free to tell me a little about your day on the card you're sending me :). If you don't know what to write, you can always tell me about your favourite ice cream flavour, I love hearing about that (mine is strawberry).
And please no ads/free cards or greetings cards (you know, the double folded ones? Don't like those!).
