About Noël...

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Hello!

My name is Noël. I am a queer, non-binary person (they/them, she/her) from Renton, WA (born and raised in Syracuse, NY). I have been an LGBTQA+ rights activist for over 12 years. I own my own business, and work as a resin artist, graphic designer, and TTRPG publisher (@arcanum.dice on Instagram). I've worked in the arts for nearly ten years, and have dual-Masters degrees in Arts Administration and Museum Studies. I majored in East Asian Art History and Photography in my undergraduate studies, and minored in Asian/Asian-American Studies.

From 2006-2007 I was a Rotary Exchange Student in Yamagata, Japan, and between 2018-2019 my husband and I lived in Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany, in both Düsseldorf and Duisburg. I love to travel, and have been to the following countries: Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, and (of course) the United States.

I am also the founder of the Puget Sound Postcrossing Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/pspg.postcrossing/

I enjoy reading fantasy/science fiction (Neil Gaiman, Ray Bradbury, Brandon Sanderson), writing (short stories/flash fiction), Dungeons and Dragons (playing and watching/listening to streams), making art (watercolor painting/printmaking), and baking. I also love spending time with my two cats, Bella and Toby.

♫ Themes for May:
- water (rain/lakes/ocean)
- black and white photographs
- succulents

♫ Topics for May:
- Did you pick up a new hobby during the pandemic? If so, what is it?
- If you could learn a new language in the next year, what would it be?
- What is one of your fondest memories?

I collect a number of postcard themes:

♥ drawings of food/drink
♥ subways, trains, railways
♥ drawn maps (incl. metro/subways)
♥ urban sketches/watercolor landscapes
♥ post boxes
♥ shaped cards
♥ vintage ad cards from 50s-60s Hotels/Motels
♥ USSR space posters/astronomy
♥ funky/weird art
♥ meetup cards
♥ cartoons (Sanrio, Krtek, Moomin)
♥ hummingbirds, sea turtles, deer
♥ LGBTQA+ cards, erotic photography (men/women), pinups
♥ mermaids, magic, tarot, astrology (Capricorn/Year of the Dragon)
♥ women in traditional clothes
♥ quotes, alphabets
♥ PostalLove's postcards (ie. "Greetings from...")

Handmade and ad cards are always welcome.

♥ I also love stamps that are shaped, holographic, embossed, or depict food/drink (if you are from Norway, I would love to get the new Myths & Legends stamp from your country)
♥ I also appreciate tea (puerh, chai, and herbals), currency, or stickers from your country.

あなたは日本語を知っている場合は、日本語で私を書いてください!

Deutsch zu schreiben ist in Ordnung (es wird mir helfen, die Sprache zu lernen).
