I travel a lot to various postcard shows and Meet-ups. If you send me a postcard I will not be able to register it until my return. I am sorry for any inconvenience this makes for you but I hope to have a great time during my travels. And meet a lot of you.
If you have contacted me for a trade and I haven't answered, it is mostly that I don't have enough information about you to reply. Please send more than your first name on a postcard. I send hundreds of postcards and don't always remember a persons information.
I live on a farm in the very south of Texas, USA. I am a mother of 5, grandmother of 15. great-grandmother of 30, and have 5 great-great-grandchildren. I have been collecting postcards for over 60 years. I love postcards about postcards especially those you make for National Postcard Week. www.facebook.com - put National Postcard Week in the search. The first full week of May each year is when we celebrate NPCW. Does your country have this celebration? If not, get together with some friends and start one. If you would like to join us in the celebration send your name and mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org and whether you would like to receive your postcards in an envelope or naked with a stamp.
There is also an International Postcard Week.
I hope you will participate in International Postcard Week (IPCW) during the first full week in October. It's simple and fun!!! All you do is create a postcard to share during IPCW with those across the globe who do the same. See the IPW website here:
My preferences are NPCW (National Postcard Week),IPCW (International Postcard Week), Inge Look, UNESCO, ordinary people doing everyday things, recipes, unusual buildings, lighthouses and iron lacework. I love to cook the recipes that appear on postcards. Please provide an English translations if possible.
