About Alexandra...

Hey, dear friend!

It is amazing, how a small piece of paper can bring us so much fun and joy!
For me every day I come home from work my biggest joy is to open my mail-box and watching out for the newest cards I received. I experience so many heart-warming moments with all your lovely cards. Thanks to all my senders so far for all these wonderful cards!

Since my childhood I am in love with writing, all kind of paper-stuff and postcards. Long ago I had a lot of penpals around the world. A few are still left since over 40 years now, but I also started to collect and write postcards more and more over the years.
I have a huge collection of unwritten cards and I can't stop buying more because there are so many beautiful motives in this world! Looking at them makes me happy!
The idea of making you smile because of a surprising card in your mailbox is much joy for me. Moreover I think sending cards is a nice touch to make the world a little smaller & happier!

I am in my early 50's and interested in so many things, but as like for most of us, the day has not enough hours to pack in all the great things we could do.
I mostly love writing postcards, looking for new paper-stuff, reading, cooking and visiting concerts or theatres. I have seen so many wonderful artists, singers and bands during the last 10-15 years. Due to Covid-19 a lot of concerts have been cancelled, but I hope they will be able to tour again and I will be there to see them again for sure!
My favourites are P!NK, Ed Sheeran, Imagine Dragons, One Republic, Rea Garvey, Sunrise Avenue, Sarah Connor, Silbermond, just to mention a few. Plus I love German acappella-groups. Their humour is just very special and I love it!

If you are not sure what kind of postcard to send here are some suggestions:

- illustrated cute fantasy creatures and elves
- Illustrations from for example Elina Ellis, Katja Saario, Nina Chen, Kristiana Heinemann, Mila Marquis, Anne-Julie Aubry
- illustrated butterflies
- illustrated scenes in general
- books
- romantical scenes
- cupcakes and muffins
- beach scenes
- seashells
- by the sea
- hearts
- all about love and loving people
- with lot of purple
- cards with sayings or wisdom
- snowmen
- photographs from Carl Warner
- seasonal cards (christmas, easter, valentine, halloween)
- handstamped

please look at my favourites and I will guess you will find out the style I love

but all others are welcome too for sure, although I don't like the typical tourist cards very much.

You can tell me about your favourite book as I am always looking for good new reading stuff. Let me know a bit about yourself.

Happy postcrossing,
