About Kristen...


I am 30 something years old and I am currently working as a full time wife/mom- I have three kids (ages 12, 7, and 6). The youngest is also the only girl! The kids and I love to go on adventures and picking out postcards is always a special treat at the end of the day. We love to send and receive postcards of all types.

Aside from playing with postcards, I LOVE to read (there is just not enough time for me to read all of the books on my bookshelf, even if I quit buying them!). I love plants, too. As a wedding present, my sweet husband designed and installed a beautiful English Garden. And 9 years later, we moved! We have only been in the new house for a short time, but we are getting very excited to see our new garden develop before our eyes!

I hate to make postcard request. First, because this is supposed to be fun and I don't want to stress anyone and also, because I wonder what treasures you have that I would never know to put on my wish list. If you have something special, please share with me. If it is special to you, chances are, it will be special to me, too!

If you work better from a list, here are some postcards will make me smile:

*Royal Families (any and all Royal subjects)
Anything Vintage/Linen Postcards/Historical Themes
Lantern Press (old travel posters)
Dancing (all types of dance)
Your country's claim to fame/Unique places you've been
Art (including artistic photography) Send what you think is beautiful!
Places of Worship
Superheroes (Comic Books)
Urban Decay (abandoned buildings/structures in disrepair)
Anything that is a passion of yours (and please tell why)
Olympic Postcards
The country side/Barns
Recycling/Organic (being green)
Russian nesting dolls
Inge Look/Moomin Characters/Krtek

* Please write on the card, no need to use an envelope

** I would love for you to tell me a little bit about yourself. Please share a memory with me. I can be something that just happened or something from long ago. If you still don't know what to write, I would be interested to read your story, a memory from your childhood, your love story, your dreams, a secret or your favorite quote. The writing on the back is usually better than the picture on the front.

I register my cards the day I get them, I know how hard it is to wait! I will say, I do not feel comfortable registering cards that I have not received. Just so you know, United States Postal System always puts a bar code at the bottom of the postcard, so it's not the best place to write the postcard ID.

Thank you!!
