my name is Marie-Noël, I'm a Freelance Graphic Designer from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. I've been pen-palling for about 6 years, collecting postcards for about 11 years :) ...
I'm a bubbly joyful person, *** on the BACK of your card ***, I would love to hear about who you are and what makes you smile or brightens your day, could be anecdotes or little facts about you, or the must go to places that I would absolutely need to visit if I was living closer to your area as I'm very into must see locations that deserves to be better known and cherished :)
And for those of you who like to get a little inspiration ;) *** on the FRONT of the card *** ... I'm a big fan of :
--- everything vintage (typewriters, gramophones, luggage, old movies, etc.)
--- hand-drawn or digitally drawn illustrations
--- geek culture in general
--- typography and serigraph cards
--- pin-ups, empowered women or feminist cards
--- exotic animals (sloth, fennec fox, kinkajou, baby monkeys, etc...)
--- street art and murals
--- yummy looking desserts, the or coffee, or a photograph of food and stationery ♥
--- interesting photographs with light play or architectural lines or very expressive, or fun-cute staged pictures with children or elders
and tons of other things :) !
... if you need more inspiration, I put a lot of favourites here in my gallery https://goo.gl/13BjHK you can have a look ;)
* ... ideally no city views please, but really, any postcard will do, I will love it from the bottom of my heart as soon as I'll lay eyes on it, I'm sure ;) !!!
