- Krampus, Perchten or Certa
- Mecki
- 3D (lenticular) or shaped cards
- politics
- jellyfish, sea dragons, sea horses
- Hundertwasser, Afremov, Frida Kahlo
- Jetoy, Studio Ghibli, Miyazaki
- Cemeteries, funerary practices, ossuaries
- Succulents, red poppies
- ethnic and racial diversity
- regional or traditional costumes and handiwork
- any arts and crafts; your artwork; crochet & patterns
- recipe cards (not meat though please)
- packaging cut into postcards
- people at work
- postal themes
- power lines, telephone or utility poles with crazy wiring

I love special stamps! I've been strongly influenced by Hundertwasser's beliefs about stamps This is in large part my reason for postcrossing: to help stamps fulfill their mission :-)
Tell me about hot political or cultural topics in your country. I appreciate hearing all points of view. Or tell me about a myth, superstition or local belief common in your area - what’s a way to ensure good luck? What do you do with baby teeth? How might you avoid having some kind of a bad outcome?
I am learning calligraphy. I have a terrific partner, 2 grown kids, and now a beloved grandchild. I lived in Austria for many years but am glad to have settled back near my family. I ride an e-bike to as many places as possible. I was once selected Bike Commuter of the Year :-)

I love arts and crafts like scrapbooking, paper engineering, & ceramics, and I enjoy gardening (succulents, fruit and 🥑 trees) and baking. I'll retire next year. If you have tips for retirees, please share them with me.

Want to see the giant puppets I made for the San Francisco Pride Parade? Here's a short clip: I'm operating the silver one. Because of the pandemic, we organized a Shoebox Float Pride mini-parade on zoom. These little puppets then won 1st prize for this science jokes birthday clip Now I have my paper engineering photo pop-ups on Tiktok @janiepin :-)

For a time i shared this account with my mom. She passed away peacefully. She adored PXing to the end! Thanks to all who gave her so much happiness.

Thank you! We all make Postcrossing the joy that it is!!!

**** Mexico mystery card: I received a beautiful Meet-Up card from Mexico Sept. 14, 2023 that can't be identified by Postcrossing. Sender, please send the ID so I can register it.
