My name is Anita, I'm married, have two grown children, and live in Odessa, Texas, the town "Friday Night Lights" (book and movie) were about. I work as a purchasing agent for a manufacturer of molded rubber products used in the oil field.
I love to play online games (World of Warcraft), watch my fish/coral, read (my favorite book is "The Name of the Wind" by Patrick Rothfuss), watch the New Orleans Saints play American football, and get postcards in the mail.
Send any postcard you like. If you are an artist feel free to draw/make a postcard. I enjoy home made postcards. Also please don't ever feel like you need to apologize for your English. I speak only one language and am thankful you are able to communicate on any level with me.
***My favorites are postcards I have RECEIVED***
Since joining Postcrossing I've discovered having a "list" for the sender to choose from takes some of the pressure off (at least for me). Here is a list of things I like (in no particular order) but I honestly enjoy every postcard I receive. There are no duplicate postcards as every sender is original.
~Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) / Sugar Skulls
~World of Warcraft
~Blue Cats - Irina Zeniuk
~Original Artwork by the sender of the card
~Petrykivka / Khokhloma art
~Vintage Travel Posters
~Cartoon or animated characters
~Places of worship
~Music Artists LP, Lindsey Stirling, or composer Klaus Badelt
~Pens or pencils
~Beer, pubs, alcohol
~ Holiday Cards, especially if it's not a typical US holiday
Again this is more to help YOU because I love every postcard I get. Go ahead, surprise me.
Wondering what to write? Tell me about a holiday, festival, or celebration your city, region, state, country celebrates.
Thanks for reading and I can't wait to see what you sent!
Focus not on the cards that didn't make it but the ones that did =)
*LATVIANS* - If you are sending a postcard from Latvia, please send a card that represents Latvia. Places, culture, dress, symbols (Sign of Jumis, Sign of Auseklis, etc.) are all awesome. A few words in Latvian would be nice too even though I don't speak the language. My Grandparents immigrated to the US with my Dad and Uncle so the country holds a special place in my heart <3.
To U.S. Postcrossers - Please join the campaign to request the U.S. Postal Service to issue a Postcrossing stamp! Spread the word by adding this info to your profile and then send a postcard (or write a letter) to:
