I am collecting World Postcard Day and COVID-19 / pandemic related postcards and stamps (ad cards and handmade cards are ok!)
Here is a little about me:
I have an artist’s imagination and a scientist’s curiosity. I love food (especially fruit), my Fiat 500, postcards and postage stamps.. I have degrees in botany and fashion design. I love to study historical, theatrical and traditional costumes (to figure out how they were constructed).
I am an avid birder and love to travel all over the world, especially to see birds. I keep a list of birds I would like to see before I die and am slowly working my way through the list. Do you have a bird that I should add to my list? Some that are near the top of the list are Hoopoe, Fairy Wren, and Shoebill Stork.
I believe in peace, equality, and kindness.
Please send me a postcard that makes you smile 😀 or make one with your original art. If you need ideas, see below.
