About Melissa...

Hello! I am a elementary school teacher living in Fort Worth, TX. I have an interest in international relations/politics. You're more than welcome to write to me in English, German, or Spanish.

When sending a postcard, tell me a little about yourself, or your city. Maybe about what you did that day. I'd also love something written in your language. Also feel free to send cards with children learning, cartoons, or of storybook characters!

Any Postcard is welcome to its new home (me!)
Other interests are:
-beer brewing, beers in general, liquor/beer advertisements
-art (my favorite is impressionism, but others are ok)
-touristy stuff (multi views are OK!)
-cartoons (from your country), hello kitty, MOOMINS! I have plenty of US cartoon ones, so for now no more of them, please!
-shin chan
-city views, night views, map cards, monuments
-typical food or dress from your country
-Gotochi/shape cards
-free/ad cards are ok so long as YOU like them and think they are creative
-Homemade ones are nice. I love to see the creativity of others, but don't feel obligated to make your own.
If you have a major holiday in your country, i'd also love to get a postcard about it! If you have some cards for the year of the snake (I was born during one!) send it if you have one to spare.
- shaped cards
- 3D card **If you send me a 3D card, I will send a thank you postcard in return!**
-If you are from the US, and have one of an unusual or not widely known place/landmark, send it! Anything mentioned above is great too.

Also a huge favor to ask- Please try and send me a postcard from your own country. I think it's ok though, if you're currently in another country (on holiday, vacation, or extended stay) but want to send a postcard from your current location. Postcards from countries not very active on postcrossing are OK.

I'd also love to get christmas, easter, and other holiday cards.
Adcards are ok, so long as you think they are creative.

***My No's:***
No Christian religious quotes (I already have a bible for that). Churches are fine. All other religious quotes are welcome.

**Private swaps:***
I'm looking for penpals and I would love to do private swaps. I am currently looking to trade with people in the middle east/africa/asia regions, as well as countries that don't have a high member count. However, I would love to trade with anyone. All I ask is that you keep your end of the deal!! I try to send out postcards in a timely manner, but if you haven't gotten one and it's been a long time, please don't hesitate to contact me/remind me.

Also, please, bitte, por favor, date the postcard you send!
Thanks! ¡Gracias! Vielen Dank!

I check my mailbox on a daily basis. If you have sent me a postcard and if it has not been registered, then it most likely means I have not received it. I check my mail everyday, and the mail system can be a little slow at times, so please be patient!
