I live in Lubbock, a city in the western part of Texas. I have traveled to many different countries in the world, such as: Spain, Mexico, Martinique (a French island in the Caribbean), Morocco, Iceland, South Korea and the Azores Islands of Portugal. In March, 2017, my son spent his Spring Break in Ireland, Scotland and England.
I'm one of the few Postcrossers who actually likes ad cards, especially if they are pretty or funny. I would rather not receive handmade cards, with the exception of cards made from your photographs. I have received some handmade cards of poor quality. I prefer single view cards, it is harder to see small images on multi-view cards. After I receive a card, I scan it and put it on all my social media (Flickr, Pinterest, Twitter, Tumblr and sometimes Instagram).
So many Postcrossers do not like folded cards and I do not understand why. If a card looks nice or is interesting, to me it does not really matter if it is folded or not.
Here are some themes I suggest for sending cards to me, based on the months of the year:
January and February: Anything tropical (surfing, beaches, flamingos, palm trees, etc.) or Valentine's Day/Romance
March and April: Easter/Spring, Cats, Fashion or Dolls
May and June: Flowers/Gardens or Farm Animals (especially cows)
July and August: Anything related to Art or Artists or Music (Instruments or Musical Performers)
September/October: Halloween/Autumn, Movies/Television or Any Celebrity. Birthday cards are appreciated in September.
November/December: Christmas, Winter, other holidays at this time or anything old fashioned/Retro.
If you have a card that you want to send but it is for a different time of the year, feel free to send it.
Looking forward to hearing from you -
