About Alen...

Hi, it's nice to meet you here, Dear Stranger! :)

My name is Alen, I'm 25 years old and I recently moved to the capital city Minsk. I used to be active in postcrossing when I was 13-14 years old and decided to come back to this hobby now. It seems to be very exciting to learn about new people, countries, to get a piece of their souls via beautiful and unique postcards.

It's hard for me to tell something about myself because I think I'm just trying to learn who am I and what I would like to do in this life. I enjoy a lot of activities starting from computer games (currently I'm a fan of Genshin Impact) or anime (Attack on Titan, Ghibly studio) and ending with something quiet and peaceful like handmade or tarot. I really like cottagecore aesthetics because I grew up in a tiny town near forests and rivers, so I'm a nature lover who makes herbaria and support eco-friendly initiatives. Sometimes I enjoy so-called witchy activities like harvesting leaves or wild mint to make homemade tea (I'm also a big fan of matcha tea and lavender latte to be honest). Currently I’m trying scrapbooking and decorating cards with stationery as my new hobby.

I will be very happy to receive:
- cards with a vintage/cottagecore aesthetics;
- magic, witch, fairy, astrology themed postcards;
- something reflecting freedom, nature or any plants you like;
- author's art postcards or your own handmade postcards (or you can also draw something on the back of a postcard if you wish);
- beautiful stamps are highly appreciated. I really like 2022 EUROPA stamp series and any other similar stamps; maxi cards are also welcomed;
- herbal tea, herbaria - on a postcards or in a envelope if you wish;
- deer;
- elf;
- kartinka24
- by Beatrix Potter, Susan Wheeler, Arthur Rackham, Elsa Beskow.
However, please do not worry if you can't find a card that meets my preferences. I'm just listing my wishes/suggestions, they are not mandatory at all. Nice city view or unique architecture of your country will also be a good choice to share with me. Just pick something that YOU personally love.
If you have any doubts about your choice, please check my favorites for inspiration. I think you can catch the vibe there :) Also if you don’t know what to write please let me know about your favorite book or song – I will be happy to enjoy it.

Penpals and direct swaps are highly appreciated! Just send me a message ✨

Thank you very much for reading this till the end! Looking forward for postcards from you.
Please stay safe!

Best wishes, Alen.
