Hello, thanks for viewing my profile!
My special focus for 2020 will again be Elvis Presley. Since setting a goal in 2015 to get 80 cards for his 80th birthday I have continued to grow my collection: http://www.flickr.com/photos/akaroxy2/sets/72157648766817757/
I live in the capital city of Canada and my hobbies include crochet, knitting, scrapbooking, music. I love to take photos and eat (way too much) Mexican food!
I love tourist/view cards. The only thing I don't care for is animal cards. I really do appreciate all cards I receive. I love a decorated backside (I'm addicted to washi tape!) and a nice message as much as the visual on the front!
I love and collect:

You can see my collection of postcards at: https://www.flickr.com/photos/akaroxy2/collections/72157645192809432/
My favourites here are cards I would like to have in my collection.
I hope the above didn't sound demanding. All I really hope is that the card represents YOU - your likes, your town, your hobbies, etc. They can be prepaid postcards, new, vintage, or those you've made... I'm just happy to be a part of this great project and will love any card sent my way!
Do you remember the first postcard you ever got? Mine was from my great aunt and uncle while they were on holiday in Florida.
