I'm a 39 year old newly married (June 2, 2018) Houston, TX resident. Recently our beloved dog Radar crossed the Rainbow Bridge 7/31/18. I miss him every day. We adopted a miniature pinscher/dachshund mix who is quite a handful on December 1, 2019. :) His name is Pesto because he is a pest. (Their response: oh.)
Postcards: No envelope, stamped with real stamps, and non-tourist theme is preferred; handmade is always welcome. I prefer no folded cards as I do not collect them.
Don’t Know What To Write?
I love to hear about unusual names you’ve heard/seen/read; tell me about what you would be patron saint of if you were beatified; write me a piece of flash fiction or haiku based on the front of the card; bullet journal your day; list what you ate/drank today; what is on your shopping list?; what are the last 5 songs you’ve listened to?; what podcasts are you really into?; what is your substitute cuss word when littles are around?; tell me a ghost story or legend from your area; if all else fails, copy out a quote or poem that you think might catch my interest.
My top 10 favorite themes for postcards:
balloons/hot air balloons
holiday related (especially unusual holidays like National Hot Dog Day, or ones not celebrated in the US)
stars/astronomy/space/weather or sky phenomena
myths/legends/fairy tales (includes mermaids, unicorns, etc.)
things I associate with childhood: matroyshka, Little Prince, Miffy
nouvelles images or cards that teach vocabulary with the word under the item
I have a recent love for Gotochi cards, as well, primarily if it's sent from Japan!
But one of the things I like best about postcrossing is getting a surprise postcard. Some of the most interesting ones are with a theme I would never have thought I would have liked.
