I signed up for postcrossing because it's such a nice thought to make someone's day a little brighter by sending a postcard :-)
I work for a nature conservancy organisation, PR department. I studied journalism so besides nature (and postcards!) I love to read well written articles in magazines, and I admire brillant photos which tell a story. And, as you see in my profile pic: I like to dress up and put on fancy make up. Unfortunately this takes too much time for a daily routine, so I love to go crazy with earrings :-)
When I am sending a card, I find it much easier when the person has a list - I love to try and find the "perfect" card for somebody. So I also wrote down some ideas for cards I really enjoy.
But please don't worry if you have nothing matching my ideas! There are many kinds of postcards that I like. In general I love to be surprised by unusual cards. If you pick a touristy view card, I'd prefer a single view.
The only thing I'd rather *NOT* receive are special designed meet up cards or other self made multi views. Please send them to others who like them more.
These are themes I love seeing on cards:
- all around the year: spooky atmosphere, Halloween, Day of the Dead/Dia de los Muertos
- Carnival/Mardi Gras and any other holiday or parade with fancy costumes
- ordinary people doing something (like working, reading, riding a bike)
- anything from the 1920ies / 50ies / 60ies: advertisement, people, fashion, design,...
- black & white photography, any vintage reprints
- maritime things: stormy sea, anchors, mermaids, sailors, busy harbours,...
- New York City (I'd love to go there once!)
- subculture, underground, street art, steam punk
- TV/movie: Doctor Who, Downton Abbey, Gilmore Girls, James Bond
- LGBTIA themed, anything queer
- cards with flamingos (photo, illustration, cartoon, weird, kitschy – anything)
- I have a crazy passion for flying pigs :-)
I once was joking, that no one would ever find a card with a flying pig... look what happened: https://www.flickr.com/photos/killewips/collections/72157683093342220/
- I try to collect state map cards from the US.
Here you can see my little collection: https://www.flickr.com/photos/killewips/collections/72157682850676021/
(It's not important for me if they're sent from state of origin or even from the US - I just enjoy the image and your message!)
♥♥♥♥ I'm looking forward to your card! ♥♥♥♥
