Hello and thanks for viewing my profile!
My special focus for 2018 is:
- British Royal Family -https://www.flickr.com/photos/akaroxy2/albums/72157645354146980
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:
- Elvis Presley! -> http://www.flickr.com/photos/akaroxy2/sets/72157648766817757/

You can see my collection of postcards at: https://www.flickr.com/photos/akaroxy2/collections/72157645192809432/
Unfortunately I had to give up my blog ( http://postcardstoroxy.blogspot.ca ) due to lack of time.
My Postcrossing Favourites link is a wishlist of cards I would like to have.
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 your first postcard? The earliest postcard I remember receiving was from my great aunt and uncle when I was very young. They sent me a card from Florida.
