About elo-veena...


I am 66 years old lady and have worked for over twenty years as lecture at the university of applied sciences. Now I have graduated special education teacher and I am working with kids and teens:) My hobbies are photography, handicrafts (mainly bookbinding, basketry and felting) and hiking & geocaching.

Here's some list of the types of cards I'd like:) Hope the list will help with your decision, thank you! Many people including myself prefer to have some idea of what a person likes or dislikes. So don't be sad about not having the exact themed postcard. Then you can look at my favs or surprise me with your choice;)

- sewing machines


- calendar postcards 2023 :)
- Hilda pin up postcards by Duane Bryer, they are so lovely! Have seen those but received only some (private swap).
- I have received four Elvgren pin-up from Belgium, Czechoslovakia and Germany, it would be great to have more:)

- Keep calm and...


- UK: PHQ postcards
- JAPAN: wood prints and Gotochi postcard (I know they are very hard to find so tell me if you like to receive some particular postcard as thanks;))


- Postcards related to handicrafts (basketry, felting, bookbinding, paper crafts, old tools & materials)
- I love old books and bookshelves!
- Photographs with women / people (maybe doing something)
- people dancing tango:)
- Old fashioned B&W postcards
- Photographs related to water / forest, I think that the most awesome views are those taken in misty or foggy weather
- poppies
- I already have these US state cards: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Florida, Hawaii, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming, but it would be nice to get more US state cards with maps. It's also okay to get another, different state card from these states, I have liked especially Indiana, Maryland, Missouri, New York, Oregon and Wyoming types postcards that have lot to explore;)
- Postcards with cats (not too cute:)). I used to have two of my own: black one in my avatar is Elo and brown one is Veena:)
- I like also some AD or Free cards when they are describing something mentioned before
- postcards by Anita Polkutie, Inga Paltser, Katja Saario, Timo Mänttäri
- also handmade card is welcome but let me feel your creativity on that:)

- stamps related to my interests would be great!
- Hmmmm... what to write? It would be great to hear about your life and about the country you live, so anything you want to share is mostly welcome!
