I am so excited to become a part of this site. I have been collecting postcards for years, and I also have a keen interest in stamps. Actually, I work as a postal clerk and a customer told me about this site. Now I have been telling others as it has been so much fun.
Recently my young granddaughter has become a fan of Postcrossing. She loves seeing all the great postcards and lovely stamps, as well as learning new things too.
I have no specific preference for the types of postcards sent, I like surprises. But here are a few suggestions:
We enjoy learning new things, so a postcard that can teach us about where you are from would be great
Minnie/Mickey Mouse, Hello Kitty, Masha and the Bear
Pretty much any cartoon character
Twilight - The Stephanie Meyer series
The singers Prince, George Michael/WHAM and Justin Timberlake
Cats / kittens
Unicorns / Fairies / Dragons
Dogs / puppies
Most animals - not reptiles or bugs though
I love lilacs, pansies, roses and snapdragons
Handsome men or erotic cards
My favourite colour is purple
Holiday cards - especially Halloween and Christmas, but also holidays that might not be celebrated worldwide
Places of interest close to you
Shaped cards would be fun
** Please no ad cards **
Examples of topics to write to me (but tell me whatever is on your mind!)
What’s your favourite food?
What you can see when you look out of your window?
Do you like music? What kind?
Quote of the day/your favourite quote or poem or something funny that happened to you today.
What’s the weather(season) like where you are?
ATTENTION -- if you are from Belarus, I would LOVE to receive the new Postcrossing stamp. Or if you are from any other country that has Postcrossing stamps I would really appreciate them.
If there is a text written in characters other than English alphabet letters (ie Cyrillic/Chinese/Japanese/Arabic etc.) on the card, could you please translate it into English for me. Could you also put the date on the postcard -- Thanks.
Expired cards? Too many - Sadly. But I don't register a card unless I received it.
By the way, I'm a big kid at heart so if you have any stickers to put on I would enjoy those too.
