IMPORTANT: dear postcrossers from the USA! Your country unilaterally doesn’t deliver mail to Belarus, but PC gives you our addresses. Write me before sending a postcard. I'll give you the address of a relative of mine in Massachusetts where you can send a postcard. Everything will be OK. Otherwise, the postcard will not go to Belarus, but will be lost or returned to you. It's temporary, I hope.
Hello friends. I’m Natalya from Minsk. I worked at the movie production company as a film crew mаnager, but now I’m retired. 2 of my 3 adult children work in the movie as well. I became a widow 6 y.a., my husband was a well known director of photography in the Russian film industry. All my life is connected with cinema and I still love it. The most forever favorite movies are: «Bohemian Rhapsody» (I watched it 10 times, always with tears), I also like «2046» of Wong Kar Wai (beautiful music and visuals!) and «Anna Karenina» of Joe Wright. My other hobbies are reading, cross stitching, visiting exhibitions and theaters, especially opera and ballet, it’s not so expensive in our country.
⠀I collect stamps, notes and coins, beer mats and bookmarks.
⠀I’m a big tea lover and I always wonder how many sorts of tea exist in the world, I save new tea bags and this is my hobby as well.
⠀Funny thing is, now I like reading your letters and cards even more than when I started in 2012, a paradox!
⠀Here is a short video about my beautiful country: https://youtu.be/hHy_uUnvkho
⠀My wish list below is not a requirement, just to give you some ideas. If you can, use beautiful stamps.
🔹I’m interested in old cards;
🔹British Royal family;
🔹Famous actors. I like especially like the French cinema because I studied French culture at the university.
🔹3D, holographic or special material cards: wooden, metal, cork. If possible, in envelope, and please add your address – I always send some beautiful thank-you cards in reply, because they are expensive.
🔹Art, meet-up, Кeep Calm;
🔹Maxi Cards ( maxi cards are not the cards of big size, it’s when the stump on the front side and the picture are connected with the same theme);
🔹Famous people, presidents, shaped cards;
🔹Из России можно синих котиков, они забавные, и марки – у россиян они просто суперские, глаза разбегаются!
But these are only my wishes, I like all the cards.
⠀I save interesting envelopes as well. Please no AD, self printed, multi view cards.
And finally: I don't register newspaper clippings, printed papers and not received cards.
⠀Thank you very much for all your kind letters. This project is my favorite hobby and helped me through a tough period of my life.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Happiness and health to everybody.
