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. As for handmade cards, I prefer cards made from photographs over other kinds of art. I like handmade cards IF they`re really made with care and passion, even if this takes more time. I would rather wait for a good handmade card than get a poorly made one that was done in a hurry. I prefer single view cards, as 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, and sometimes Instagram). If you do not want me to share your card on social media, please let me know so I won't post it there. Do not worry. With the occasional exception of postage stamps, I never post anything on the back of a card to my social media, just the picture on the card front . I would never post an address - my own or anyone else's - on the Internet.
Feel free to write about whatever you want. If you would rather not write much, I am okay with that as well. I like nice or interesting postage stamps as well as washi tape and/or stickers.
As for suggestions, 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 (from any era) 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 -
