Please note: I put my return address on the cards I send in order to help keep them safe in mailing. It is not so that you will send me a card in return.
UA-1382106 was sent to me in December, 2015, and it arrived in September, 2017. There is no name or user ID, but if this is from you, send me a message! Thanks!
I live in suburban Dallas with my husband and daughter. My son and his (new!) wife live nearby. I work in an office at a university, and I love to travel. I have been to 44 of the 50 United States and to 6 countries (6 if I count my own country, that is). My goal is to go to all 50 states and to as many countries as possible.
I like to walk, read, watch movies, quilt, and scrapbook. (I must admit, though,,,my quilting and scrapbooking have suffered since I started Postcrossing!) I love dogs, but am not fond of cats. My avatar is my dog, Dobby.
When you write, please include the date and also your user name (if you don't mind).
All of my received cards (official and from the forums) are shown in my flickr page: https://www.flickr.com/photos/18068602@N02/albums .
There are a few things that I would rather not receive: cards with insects, snakes, or rodents, animals dressed or acting like humans, and Anne Geddes babies. I am not particularly interested in cards with famous people, unless, perhaps, the person is considered a founder of your country. Please don't send folded greeting cards, and I prefer the postcard with no envelope.
After all that, though, I am happy to receive any postcard that you choose for me.
If you would like some positive ideas, read on...
I like touristy postcards that show your own town, region, or country. Single or multi-view are both fine, as long as the pictures are not tiny! The cards in my Favorites are cards I have not received.
UNESCO World Heritage Sites
parks, nature, landscapes, geology
maps (especially topographic or geologic maps)
vintage travel posters
important, beautiful, or unique structures (prefer old, not modern)
something relating to your traditions or culture
Postallove "Greetings from..."
