Hello, my name is Sharon and I have always enjoyed receiving and collecting postcards from family and friends throughout the years. Since I was a young girl, I have been fascinated to learn about other places and people in our great world.
I discovered Postcrossing while listening to a radio program here in Toronto and I immediately thought...I must give it a try. I'm so happy I did! After a year of Postcrossing, I can tell you that I love it!...I'm hooked! The only thing I don't like, is when I am asked to
write a postcard to one of your pets. I'm in Postcrossing for the human contact. I have
two little dogs of my own and would never ask you to write to one or both of them.
I love to garden and I'm passionate about birds which caused me to take up photography. If I'm not in the garden, I'm out chasing down anything that flies and taking pictures of them or any other animal that I might cross paths with. In order to record my finds, I took up photography and obtained all the gear it entails. I'm the paparazzi of the bird world in my neighbourhood.
Photography has become an important part of my life now... It has helped me to get out and discover my surroundings, near and far. It's a lot of fun.
I would love to receive postcards of your surroundings, history, customs, architecture and any kind of wildlife would be a real plus. I love to learn about new places. I'm easy to please, but I 'm not very fond of risque type of cards or cartoon humour.
Please...no envelopes. I love seeing the stamps on the cards.
I would also prefer not to receive handmade postcards. Canada Post says this type of card 'gums' up their system and they won't handle them by hand, so it goes into a 'lost' bin due to the way they are made. Your time gets wasted and I don't get your postcard. Although, postcards that are made from one of your photographs would be lovely to receive.
My Favourite list only demonstrates cards that I enjoyed seeing ...not cards I have on a want list. I don't have a want list. :)
I do try my best to send a postcard that you would like, but sometimes you just can't fit everyone's choices. I also appreciate it when you take a little time to write something about yourself or the area you come from. I recently received a card with a trivia question and have a great day...that was it! If you read their profile you would see that they wouldn't have appreciated a trivia question either...so why ask me one??? I felt like I was nothing more than an inconvenience to the sender. It wasn't a nice feeling.
I do my best to register the cards on the very day I get them. I love sending postcards and if you don't register them...I and others can't send them.
Thank you from your Postcrossing friend, Sharon.
