I'm addicted to postcards. I love them, I make them, I go to antique stores to look at them, I almost always buy them if I see them for a good price...I love them!! I love postage too.
My "wishlist" (artistic renditions welcome):
- animals in hats
- snakes, crocodiles/alligators, birds of prey, jackalopes, bats, sharks, dragons, dinosaurs, scorpions
- botanical illustrations
- art by: Mucha, Van Gogh, Edmund Dulac, Arthur Rackham, Beatrix Potter, Maxfield Parrish
- cards to surprise my boyfriend (same address only the name is "Peter"): fish, ocean life (excepting mammals), soccer
- volcanoes exploding
- vintage travel poster aesthetic (like Lantern Press)
- space-related, especially Yuri Gagarin
- linen and real photo postcards
- ruins, castles, artifacts from long ago
- fairy tales, folk tales, and mythology
- female villains
- nighttime landscapes, including northern lights

Feel free to write anything, but if you are stuck, consider: writing about the history or legends of your city/region/country, writing about your favorite place in your city, tell me the last good book you read, or just what is going on in your life right now!
Some of my interests are reading, laughing, learning (sociology, history, world religions, biology, psychology, anthropology, theology, philosophy, earth sciences...everything!), furry critters, camping & hiking & bike riding, arts & crafts (mostly paper crafts and collage but also watercolor, needlepoint, sewing and refinishing furniture), and of course relaxing!
I am a baker by profession--I started it and my boyfriend and I run it together. We also have an awesome cat.
