Hello! My name is Christina and I am a stay-at-home mother and wife. I also have two cats that we love dearly and consider to be part of our family. I love to learn about the world and all of the interesting people in it! I really love the idea of Postcrossing--it is a beautiful way to remind us that we are all just unique individuals living in different parts of the globe!
I enjoy traveling, reading, cooking, philosophy, cultural anthropology, vintage and antique things, coffee and tea, and good conversation. I am open to any postcard that you want to send to me but here are some ideas of ones that I would enjoy:
♥ buildings or structures in your area (churches, castles, historical buildings or sites, city or town views, etc.)
♥ kings/queens/royalty of your country
♥ famous historical figures of your country
♥ traditional culture in your country
♥ food or recipes from your culture and/or country
♥ coffee or tea
♥ birds (Do you have a postcard with an owl? What fascinating birds!)
♥ something strange or unique
♥ meaningful quotes
♥ something kawaii (San-X, Sanrio, Mind Wave, Q-Lia, etc.)
♥ European Renaissance and Victorian eras
♥ Matryoshka dolls
♥ mail related cards (postbox, post office, stamps, etc.)
♥ something book related
♥ holiday cards (Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, St. Patrick's Day, Halloween, etc.)
♥ vintage cards
♥ cartoons and children's characters (Are you from Sweden? A Pippi Longstocking card would majorly make my day--one of my childhood favorites! Are you from Finland? ----> I would be SO happy to get a Moomin postcard! Are you from the Netherlands? ----> I would also love a Jip and Janneke postcard!)
♥ fantasy creatures (fairies, elves, trolls, etc.)
Tell me about yourself and your dreams and aspirations or...just tell me something interesting! Write a recipe. Tell me what you will be doing in the upcoming week or what you did today. Write a poem. Write something in your language and translate it. Traveling is a true passion of mine so if you have recently traveled then tell me about your trip! Please feel free to write cards in Spanish as I would love to try to translate them.
I will, however, truly love any postcard and the words that you choose to write--I think that is the ultimate purpose of this website! You're more than welcome to also send handmade cards or something in an envelope! There is a tag in the Postcrossing Forums for postcards made from a cutout of food packaging and that is interesting to me--just write something to me about the food if you choose to go that route! I am sincerely and simply happy with getting anything handwritten to me in my mailbox though!
