As we are fully into US election season, I don't mind political postcards.
Also, You can also send me political, pandemic or medical related postcards related to the pandemic (ad cards and handmade cards are ok!)
I am curious how other people are doing during the pandemic - if you would share your thoughts, I would love to hear what you are thinking, doing, frustrated about, etc.
Here is a little about me:
I have an artist’s imagination and a scientist’s curiosity.
I love food, especially sweets and my Fiat 500.
I am an avid birder; love to travel and collect postcards; and 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.
Some ideas to put on the back if you dont know what to write:
- 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
- if you are sending a map of your location, please mark it on the map
- add a produce sticker or two (the ones they put on at the grocery store)
- fill it up with postage stamps
For 2020 I started a do-it-yourself collection of food box postcards. Send me a 4" x 6" (10.8cm x 15.2 cm) postcard made from a cardboard food box (just cut the rectangle, write on the back and stamp it - voila!)
Also, I am planning a Birding Big Year (if we get the pandemic under control) in 2021 - I would love a postcard of your favorite bird to help me learn to recognize more species ~( °V°)~
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
* I like ad, handmade & vintage also if they fit into one of these collections.
Anytime of year:
* Poisson d'Avril / April Fools' Day / April 1st
* Lunar New Year (from any year)
* meetup and postcrossing
* mail theme - mailboxes, postage stamps, post office, mail carrier, airmail, etc.
* all series cards (like Greetings from..., WOW, FOTW, WT, Icons, etc.)
* multiples like Nouvelles Images and Icons series
* sewing machines
* skulls & skeletons
* carnivorous plants
* chess or playing cards (the games or people playing them)
* cards that say HEIDI on them (signs, sayings, etc)
* functional cards (lenticular, cut outs, beer deckles, flaps that open, things that move, etc)
* curling (the sport)
* sausages, wieners, hotdogs and wurst
* Sherlock Holmes related
