My name is Kathy and I am an American living in Germany. I'm so happy to share Postcrossing with you! I love reading profiles and picking just the right card and stamp for the recipient.
I truly like all postcards but if you need ideas and have any of these on hand, these are my favorite things:
Seasonal postcards: Halloween, Autumn, Christmas, Easter, Hanukkah, Diwali
Christmas postcards and stamps!
birthday postcards in April and May
*the Eurasian Blue Tit (die Blaumeise, Blåmeis, Blue Tit, Sininen Tissi, Blå Tit, Mésange bleue, Niebieska (Cyanistes caeruleus)
*the European peacock butterfly (Aglais io)
*favorite illustrators include *Lisi Martin*, Nina Chen, Mila Marquis, Marjolein Bastin, Beatrix Potter, Jill Barklem (Brambly Hedge), Molly Brett, Evgenia Chistotina (foxes), Holly Pond Hill by Susan Wheeler, Charles Goulding, etc.
*realistic woodland/wildlife illustrations and forest gnomes, especially Midthun, Lennart Helje and Jan Bergerlind.
*I really like Postcrossing stamps from your country (don't we all?) 😄
*I love cards with a matching or coordinating stamp. Please let me know if you'd like to trade cards with these kinds of stamps, as I have a big collection for swap.
I don't mind duplicates as each card is unique to the sender.
Thank you for reading this all the way to the end!!
