Hello Postcrossers. I'm a postal worker living in the port city of Duluth on the tip of Lake Superior. My icon is of Bilbo Baggins by Dutch artist, Cor Blok. I love getting personal mail!
I'm interested in 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.
Some things I like:
* Single Views.
* cultural, historical, native costume, or unique points of interest of the area in which you live.
* Scenic, Touristy postcards
* UNESCO world heritage sites
* World leaders, monarchy
* cats as depicted in art
* Jetoy cats
* Postallove 'Greetings From' and 'Cat Breeds' would be special.
* science related/planets/stars/biology
* literary themes/books/bookshelves/readers/libraries
* Lily-of-the-Valley, my favorite flower
* Inge Löök
* Tove Jansson's Moomintroll characters
* Edward Gorey
* post boxes/mail boxes/postmen/anything postal
* Gotochi postboxes would be wonderful!
* anything Tolkien
* Peanuts character
* fairy tales from your country
* seasonal holiday cards from your country
If you don't have anything on the list, don't worry. Send what subject you like. Postcrossing is to be fun, not stressful. I'm interested in the person on the other side of the card and in the place where you live. I'd like to read about your typical day, or favorite hobbies, books, favorite way to relax, or favorite anything. I'd be grateful if you would describe or explain the postcard if it's not self-evident. 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 don't mind finding a surprise such as a teabag, a bookmark, or some ephemera tucked inside.
P.S. If you're so inclined, draw something Tolkien-related (especially a hobbit), or a character from the Peanuts comic strip on the postcard. I would be delighted. Or draw a Moomin character or a snail, or whatever takes your fancy. :)
