Here is a little about me:
I love to travel and collect postcards.
I am always curious about everything.
I love to organize small things (Legos, buttons, postcards, etc.)
I have an artists imagination and a scientists curiosity.
I love food, especially sweets.
I love my Fiat 500.
I believe in peace, equality, and kindness.
Please send me a postcard that makes you smile 😀 or make me one with your original art. If you need ideas, see below.
I appreciate vintage and beautiful stamps.
If you need something to write about:
- tell me about your postcard collection - how/why/when you started it, how you store it, your favorite postcard
- how do you celebrate April 1st in your country (or is it not a holiday there)?
- draw me a picture on the back
- write me a quote or saying
2018 - I am focusing this year on my mail themed collection - mailboxes, stamps, airmail, mail carriers, letter writing, etc. If you can add to this, I would be delighted :)
Here are some ideas for those wanting more direction:
* I prefer cards that are 4" x 6" (10.8cm x 15.2 cm) or smaller so that they fit in my albums
* My "Favorites" on my postcard wall are just examples of what I like - you can send anything similar.
* Ad, handmade & vintage are fine if they fit into one of these categories.
Anytime of year:
* Poisson d'Avril / April Fools' Day / April 1st
* Lunar New Year (from any year)
* lovebirds (the parrots) like these https://www.flickr.com/photos/themadcrafter/sets/72157632681309422/
