Welcome to my profile and to the lovely western state of Colorado!!! I can't wait to get a postcard from you. Below is a little about me.
I'm 16, a sophomore in high school. I am the oldest of 4 kids: Emma is 14, Pietro is 12, and Paolo is 9. I love dogs and have a funny little mutt named Rosie. I am a strong Catholic who loves her faith and wants to set the world on fire!
I LOVE music and play 4 instruments: clarinet for marching band, oboe in concert band, piano, and guitar.
I really enjoy school, especially geography and history. I think it's fun to learn about and meet people from other cultures (which is why I signed up for Postcrossing! Also I love postcards. Don't we all.) When I was younger, I competed in the national geography bee. For two years I was the top female competitor nationwide.
When I'm not doing homework, you can find me reading, Postcrossing of course, playing or listening to music, spending time outdoors, at swim or band practice, enjoying food, working on a project for AHG*, or hanging out with my friends and family.
I love languages!!! Please write your card in Spanish or Italian if possible.
Cards I would especially enjoy:
birds (kiwis and owls especially)
***NEW ZEALAND: PLEASEpleaseplease send me a card with a kiwi!!!
music or instruments
traditional culture of your country
snails and slugs
funny road signs
crayons or anything colorful
musicals- I love musicals!!!
all sorts of animals
knitting or other handicrafts
***JAPAN: Gotochi please!
Your country's flag
Popes (JPII, Benedict, Francis)
Anything handmade! Your paintings, drawings, photos, collages, etc. are gladly accepted.
***Harry Potter!!! PLEASE send me a Harry Potter card if you have one!!! :)
Please check out my favorites to see if you can send something from there!
BUT I totally understand if you can't meet my requests. I will enjoy many different cards, so take a chance and send what you've got! :)
Please DO NOT send inappropriate cards. I also dislike pink, greeting cards, unwritten cards (this makes it tempting to reuse them), Hello Kitty, multiview, and black and white portraits.
Please write something nice and personal, not just "Happy Postcrossing!" Ideas for what to write:
-If you are a Christian, tell me your favorite Bible verse
-draw a picture
-give me a quick "language lesson"
-your favorite quote
If you want to make me REALLY happy, you could use nice stamps and put the postcard in an envelope (this makes it easier to remove the stamps.)
I would love to do a direct swap if you have a card mentioned above. If we decide to swap, I will do my best to send you a card you will love.
*AHG (American Heritage Girls) is a Christian scouting group.
Well, I'm almost out of room. I will hear from you soon I expect! Until then, I wish you many happy postcard exchanges.
