! Dear postcrossers, I'm upset when I get a card from one country with a view of another country, so I kindly ask you to avoid those cards, if it’s possible.
My name is Irina, I'm 32, live in Saint-Petersburg. I studied Culturology at university, but I'm an office worker now - things happen this way, you know. I enjoy reading, love nature and adore music. I'm interested in foreign languages, psychology, space, unusual things, like to learn something new for me, like to play computer and board games, like needlework (cross-stitching and other embroidery) and other nice things. I'm also a fan of biathlon :)
I appreciate every card I receive. Here are just some ideas how to make it special for me :) I like:
- cards from my Favorites :)
- nature: landscapes, national parks, four seasons, rain, snow, rainbow, sky, mist etc.
- the four elements (any image, real or not)
- flowers (especially cornflower, lily of the valley, forget-me-not, dandelion, peony), trees, grass
- botanical illustrations
- owls, wolves, cats, hedgehogs, racoons, foxes, birds (please, in their natural appearance, I mean, not in dress or something like that)
- food, drinks, spices, sweets and pastry
- space, starry sky, aurora borealis
- clocks of all kinds
- books and letters
- Christmas and New Year cards in December and January
- Keep Calm
- Nouvelles Images

I appreciate beautiful stamps too, if you can use them - do it! :)
It would be nice if you wrote something else besides 'happy postcrossing'. For example, your favorite book/song/film, your mood at the moment, the weather conditions etc. =) I wait for not only a card itself, but also your message.
All the best and happy summer/winter! :)
Thank you for reading this to the end)
