Leonid Afremov postcards - All year round
But if you don't have a card from my wish-list, any tourist card from your country or from a country you visited will also make me happy. And please do not apologize if you don't have anything from my list. Receiving a postcard from you is a privilege in itself.
Please send me real postcards and not cut-out pieces of cardboard or magazines or folded cards. Thank you for respecting my wish.
Tell me about:
Your favorite book (Mine: Anne of Green Gables)
What happiness means to you (Seeing the fireworks at Disneyland)
A song/band I should listen to (Crash & Burn by Savage Garden)
What do you really need to be happy?
I enjoy going to different countries and exploring the culture and sights. It’s not so important for me that I have to see famous sights, but rather how I felt in that country. I am a restless soul who wishes she could visit every country in the world. Postcrossing lets me do that in a way.
What I love about the project:
After 8 years I enjoy picking the right postcard and getting that Hurray message that tells me that I chose the right card and stamps for the recipient. I want the recipient to have a smile when they open their mail box and find my postcard. I like colors and normally decorate my postcards with stickers and washi tape, unless it isn’t welcomed. I follow the recipient’s wish list as much as I can. As I said, I want to make you happy, when you get a postcard from me.
I scan my received postcards with the stamps received, but please know that I did not cut the stamps from the card. They are all intact and nicely stored in a binder. I simply find that stamps are beautiful and should be shared too if possible.
Please put the date and your city on the postcard. Thank you and happy postcrossing. And if possible use a waterproof pen. It rains a lot in Seattle and sometimes the postcards arrive smeared and I can't read your lovely messages. An envelope is not necessary, especially when it costs you more.
Have a great day.
