*** Please note that I do not, at this time, have postage available for direct swaps. ***
My name is Nadia and I have been a resident of Ottawa, Canada for over 17 years. I'm originally from Belarus. :)
I like different postcards, black & white, illustrative and artsy ones such as those by Inge Löök, Fiep Westendorp, Kaj Stenvall or Viktoria Kirdij (and others too!).
*** My Finnish and Dutch fellow postcrossers - I LOVE THOSE and would love to collect as many as possible (so far I have 12 of Löök (+ 1 of cat), 1 of Stenvall and 5 of Westendorp's postcards)! :) If you could send these in an envelope, I'd really appreciate it, I'm hoping to frame them eventually.
Also, I have recently discovered works of Virpi Pekkala (only have 1 so far).
*** Моим посткроссерам из России: по возможности, пытаюсь коллекционировать открытки Виктории Кирдий. Спасибо!
~ For ideas on what to send me, just check out what cards I marked as favourites (some of those I already have - all of them are in my "sent").
I also love photography, traveling and learning about different cultures, so you could send postcards that show something related to your country. As long as your postcard isn't boring :)))
Please do NOT send multiview postcards, they are kind of a waste of a card if you ask me...
(Look at your postcard and think - would you like to receive it yourself?) I would appreciate it if you write something interesting, more than just "it's a postcard of a church"...
Please do NOT mail free ad or homemade or printed cards (zazzle and such). I spend time picking out postcards to send out so I'd appreciate the same courtesy. Don't just print a picture and stick a stamp to it (I've received a few postcards like this, with a copyright watermark still visible!)
I look forward to receiving your postcards.
Cheers & Happy Postcrossing! :D
P.S. I register all cards as soon as I receive them :)
