About johanna1947...

Please, please no more large size cards! Meant very well, of course, beautiful, but so difficult to store...

And: I register my cards the day I receive them and obey Postcrossing rules not to register unreceived cards.

I'm a retired primary school teacher and remedial teacher, now doing voluntary work for the foundation to conservate the history of my village.
Next to my teaching jobs I had a little shop in beads, needleworks and related commodity during about ten years.
When I started postcrossing I had 3 rescue cats nobody else wanted. Alas now the last one died September 15th 2022. Due to my age now no more cats for me at home, but sure I still like cats.

I like every kind of postcard, so please just surprise me. And please write the ID twice on the card; the postoffice has the nasty habit to print right through it, so I often have trouble reading it.

Without naming any preferences I received at November 27th, 2014, my 1000th card. The 2000th arrived on April, 16, 2016. Nr. 3000 on February 8, 2017. Nr. 4000 on Oktober 26, 2017, nr. 5000 on May 26, 2018, nr. 6000 on January 2, 2019, nr. 7000 on July 20 2019, nr. 8000 on June 27 2020, nr. 9000 May 18 2022. Nearly all of them were wonderful and carefully chosen, so I still don't have any real preferences.
Since I collect the cards and store them selected by country, I would like the card to be from your own country, at least the touristic ones.

If you haven't got much inspiration I'll give you some hints:
colourful cards
cats, real and drawn
cards that make me smile

But I like many subjects besides these.

I always appreciate very much someone picked a card, wrote it, stamped it and walked/drove it to the mailbox. I'm very grateful for every card I receive! If I don't favorite your card, doesn't at all mean I don't like it. I seldom dislike a card. I just can't favorite them all, can I?

P.S. Maybe you wonder how I sometimes seem to have received more cards than I sent. Aren't there any expired? Sure there are, lots of them. I guess the selectingcomputer must have got stuck twice at my address, because twice I got many more cards with the same date than could have been possible.
