Hi there, I'm Elena from Plymouth, the UK. I'm currently studying a fine art degree. I'm in my second year and I have chosen to look specifically at "Mail Art". Receiving mail is my favourite thing! I play the violin, classical guitar and mandolin, I write poetry, make zines, journal and I also make my own faux stamps which you can browse and purchase at my etsy shop! (http://www.etsy.com/shop/postscriptart)
I will be happy to receive absolutely ANYTHING through the post, so be creative in your choices! But if you're stuck, here are some of my absolute favourite things:
-"Unconventional" postcards (I'll let you interpret that)
-Black and white/sepia
-Butterflies and moths
-Fantasy creatures, especially fairies and dragons!
-Birds, especially songbirds and owls!
IDEAS ON WHAT TO WRITE/INCLUDE
-Something in your native language (with a translation to English) That would be so cool!
-About your day
-About the weather today, yesterday, in general
-Poetry and quotes (your own or your favourite)
-A little about you, your likes and interests.
-A little about your town/city.
I love receiving little gifts/cultural pieces, with postcards, for example bus tickets, leaflets, bookmarks, chocolates... but really, don't feel obliged! I really don't mind whether you put the postcard in an envelope or not, whatever's easier for you!
I have no preference with regards to size. (Or shape!)
I really look forward to hearing from you, and hope that the postcards I send will be well received.
All the best, now and always,
