About Ivy...

NOTE:: - if you are sending a postcard from Ukraine and you have the new Russian warship stamp it would be amazing if you could include that in the stamps on your card. <3

My friend in Texas, USA introduced me to postcrossing and I am excited to be a part of it. I live near Salt Lake City, Utah, and I love national parks, amusement parks, Sundance Film Festival, comic con conventions, and dogs. Some other favorites include: Claude Monet (particularly water lilies), Jane Austen, skiing and snowboarding, camping, the Oregon coast, Hawaii, reading, Disney, Marvel, and ice hockey.

I also love to travel. Internationally, I have visited Mexico, Canada, Germany, France, England, and Wales. Within the United States I have been to more than half the states (AL, AZ, CA, CO, FL, GA, HI, ID, IL, KS, LA, ME, MD, MO, MT, NE, NV, NH, NJ, NM, NY, NC, OH, OR, PA, RI, SC, TN, TX, UT, VT, VA, WA, WY), I have a goal to someday visit all 50 :)

USA National Parks I have visited: Hawaii Volcanoes, Redwoods, Zion, Bryce Canyon, Arches (my favorite!), Grand Canyon, Glacier, Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Rocky Mountains, Black Canyon of the Gunnison, Acadia, Great Smoky Mountains, and Saguaro. So many more to see! Parks on the top of my "next" list: Crater Lake, Yosemite, Denali, Mammoth Cave, Mese Verde, and Sequoia. I have also visited Brecon Beacons National Park in Wales, UK. In Canada I would like to visit Banff, Glacier, Jasper, Kootenay, and Yoho.

I would enjoy postcards of any type! Scenery of where you live, information about landmarks, culture, tourist attractions, pastimes, recipes, and favorite quotes would be most interesting.

Things that will absolutely put a smile on my face include snowmen, snow, mountains, sea turtles, beaches, penguins, northern lights, fireflies, cows, pigs, giraffes, otters, dachshunds, anything nature, and covered bridges. However, the best part of this project is learning more about people across the globe and that includes seeing the types of postcards everyone chooses to send.

I am also trying to learn some Persian. If you know Persian and want to write a few lines to help me learn, I welcome this!

You can view some of my favorite postcards, postcard decorations, and postage stamps on instagram at @postaroundtheworld

(No postcards selling businesses, or other money-making ventures, please. I also prefer to have the postcard sent normally, not in an envelope. I saw on another postcrosser's profile how they like to see all the bumps and bruises the card gets while traveling, this is my preference as well.)
