About Elaine...

Hello Postcrossers.
I'm a postal worker drawn to British art, nature, poetry, creativity, Peanuts comic strips (Snoopy is my favorite), drinking tea, Finnish culture (I'm half Finnish), children's book illustration, books and reading, anything British, the Japanese aesthetic and culture, Russian culture, coloring books, classical music, simple cooking, canoeing, camping, hiking, living a peaceful life, and learning about other countries. I also like collecting bookmarks. :)

Please, No ad cards, babies, children, joke-y cards, monkeys.

Some things I like. These are suggestion, not demands:
* Single Views.
* cultural, historical, native costume, or unique points of interest of the area in which you live.
* Folk Art
* Scenic, Touristy postcards
* UNESCO world heritage sites
* World leaders, monarchy
* cats as depicted in art
* Jetoy cats
* bears
* science related/planets/stars/biology
* literary themes/readers/libraries
* Lily-of-the-Valley, my favorite flower
* maps
* flags
* Inge Löök
* Tove Jansson's Moomintroll characters
* post boxes/mail boxes/postmen/anything postal
* Gotochi postboxes would be wonderful!
* anything Tolkien
* Peanuts characters
* seasonal holiday cards from your country

I'm interested in the person on the other side of the card and in the place where you live. If you don't know what to write, here's the March Prompt of the Month: Describe what you see out of your window. Or you can write about your favorite book, favorite snack, a recipe, a dream of yours...Anything besides just "Happy Postcrossing!"

I enjoy interesting, colorful, postmarked stamps. Decorating with stickers and washi tape is most welcome. I prefer no envelope but if you think it's necessary, then go ahead and use one. I love receiving teabags, a bookmark, or some ephemera tucked inside. I've sampled some wonderful tea sent by generous postcrossers.

P.S. If you're artistically inclined, draw something Tolkien-related (especially a hobbit), or a character from the Peanuts comic strip on the postcard. Or anything you wish. I would be delighted.
