My name is Antonia, I'm 27 and live in the UK . :)
I've been on swap-bot.com for quite a long time (since 2013!) If you wanted to check me out on there or are already a user on the site, my username is @HousecatAntonia. This is a welcome change for me (being on post crossing) I hope we both receive some wonderful postcards!
I draw, craft, create and make. I usually sew to relax, unless I'm doing some sewing for someone else! Hahah. I have a Maine Coon cat called Lily, she is the love of my life and my fur baby. ❤️
I am currently working multiple personal collections of postal related things, for example: Cat postcards pre 1920, Airmail labels from different countries, sculptures/miniatures of postboxes, mail service paraphernalia ect...
I have visited the Postal Museum in Stockholm, Sweden. Oh my goodness... It was so much fun!! They have just reopened the Postal Museum in London (and the Post train!) So I'll be sure to visit and pick up some postcards to send to all you lovely people. ❤️
✨📮 I have an Etsy store too! I've painted 50 Postboxes of Europe and hope to paint more Postboxes of the world! 📮✨
Last year I won one of the ‘Most Creative Postcard’ awards for the 150 Years of the Postcard exhibition in Switzerland 🇨🇭! I’m so overwhelmed with joy, I can’t believe it! If you’re interested in seeing the exhibition overview, here’s a link 😍
I love postcards with drawings, stickers and tape. I collect stamps too!!
I love all manner of postcard themes, here are a few ideas:
-Mountains/Volcanos/Glaciers (Natural Wonders)
-RED PANDAS! (not to be confused with giant pandas 🐼)
-Illustrations of cats! I love cats
-Lantern Press! (Especially US Federal parks)
-Postcards of Post boxes/Mail boxes (any country!)
-Jetoy choo choo cats
-Monuments of your Country
-Odd shaped postcards
-Weird stuff/obscure (I'm not easily offended)
Countries I’ve visited:
Canary Islands 🇮🇨, Egypt 🇪🇬, UK 🇬🇧, France 🇫🇷, Germany 🇩🇪, Greece 🇬🇷, Holland 🇳🇱, Indonesia 🇮🇩 , Isle Of Man 🇮🇲, Italy 🇮🇹,
