Greetings - my name is Joyce. I and my husband live in Washington state near the city of Seattle. And we LOVE the rain so its a lovely fit. I am an artist and mother of two marvelously independent and witty children 23 and 26. We also have 2 small dogs and 3 sly kitty cats. All rescued, all senors and each a dear sweet being.
I enjoy all postcards sent with consideration and care. Nice/rare stamps on an envelope are appreciated along with coins, stickers, keys, stamps, magnets, little calendar cards, really any surprise is a wonderful thing.
I do prefer unwritten or written in an envelope this is also so I can collect the stamps. ONLY send in envelope if it is not too much trouble. BUT I'm never disappointed in stamped and written cards w/o an envelope.
ALL cards I receive are loved and valued. The following are just suggestions. Overall I particularly like:
-Historical cards about where you live - maybe you can write something about it on the card. Your country’s churches, castles, artists or famous actors are my favorite. Cultural facts are great too.
-Whole country or state/region maps
-Animals -- (photos please not drawings)--like spiders- bats - lizards - snakes - tortoises - octopus - jellyfish - badgers - wombat - mongoose - hyena - skunk - anteater - beetles - crow/raven - insects, any rare animal especially if its unique to your country.
-Gothic/creepy/weird/dark art - vampires-supernatural -ghosts so on- monsters, zombies, werewolves etc. SPOOKY stuff.
-Fantasy art -dragons, mermaids, wizards, unicorns, dark fairies and so on. I love trolls and gnomes too!
-Some art YOU really find touches your imagination (tell me why)
-Medical or Science
-Vikings and other Norse things – pictures and stories
-ANYTHING from the Marvel Universe my favorite marvel characters are Loki, Thor and Black Widow..
-Also i love myths - what old stories does your country have to tell?
-BUT most of all my favorite cards to receive--- Handmade postcards - anything done with thought and pleasure is welcome! I enjoy seeing other people's creative works. Remember please - creativity is power and no one, I really mean none of you suck at art. How can you have no skill at being yourself? Art is a reflection of the self. Unleash your imagination and bust out your art supplies. Anything even just a pen (you already have that) is magic. So get to making a card of whatever strikes you!!! OR something maybe inspired by my wish list.
The above are just so ideas. A card that you truly want to share (on my list or not) is appreciated. Thank you all very much!
Don't know what to write? Here's some questions.
-Do you like or dislike your name? Why? Is there another name you'd like better?
-Would you rather be a pirate or a ninja?
-A mongoose or a cobra?
-Tell me if you've had a supernatural or extraterrestrial experience.
-What smells make you feel really ill?
-Would you rather wrestle a bear or an alligator?
