My name is Jen. I am a mother of 2 sons, who are 11 and 13. They are also on Postcrossing now! I love music, travel, meeting new people, genealogy and learning new things. I like to penpal, read, play piano and sing, do mail art and just be with friends and family. I am trying to teach my sons about geography and different cultures of the world so I would love something that you feel represents where you are sending it from.
I would also like it if you would be willing to write a small message on your postcard- maybe introducing yourself, something in your native language (with translation if possible!),something about your life that may be different from ours in the Northeast Region of the United States, maybe a family tradition, etc. I love that Postcrossing connects so many different people from across the world. In a time where the news is usually filled with negativity, it's nice to have something that shows you how wonderful people can be.
I am also a music teacher. If you'd like, maybe you can tell me about a band you enjoy from your country or some facts about your country's music. I love learning about new types of music so I will look up information on the people you tell me about.
I look forward to reading your postcards! Thanks! God bless!
** I would not mind getting birthday related cards in October or Christmas cards in December.
***Native German speakers, if you would like to challenge me, feel free to write in German. I need practice!
I would like and appreciate any card that you are willing to send me but I have a wishlist if you'd like more specific requests.
*** I would love to receive some Christmas cards from your country! (Postcards or folded are fine)***
