Hello! If you are reading this it is probably because you are about to send me a card.... how exciting! I am not a fussy postcard person, and would be grateful for any card I receive (as long as it is not offensive or rude). It can even be cute, silly, handmade, fun, traditional.....just send it with happiness! I feel rather disappointed when I read profiles of people who put a whole page of things they hate and what not to send. After all a postcard is just a piece of cardboard, but it is the thought and time that goes into choosing it, writing on it and mailing it that makes it so special.
About me: I love history, Playmobil, and poetry that rhymes. I collect used phonecards, used store giftcards; in my spare time I love doing tapestries, cross stitch and genealogical research (yeah, I'm a nerd!).
I live in a small country town in rural Victoria. I'm currently grieving the loss of a baby, the 6th I've lost in 9 years, so I'm probably not the most cheery sociable person to be around (sorry to all those who have asked for direct swaps - it's a bit too much for me at the moment). I don't watch the news anymore - it's too depressing - however I am aware of political turbulence overseas which might interfere with mail services. So if you have sent me a postcard and that hasn't been received then just email me and I will register it after 60 days. It would be a shame for politics to get in the way of a good postcard!
Feel free to be yourself on the card you send. If you want to have a whinge about life or things that are bothering you that is fine - let it all out. Or you can write something happy or funny. A little bit of happiness and cheer can really make someone's day and I look forward to doing the same on the cards I send.
