Hi, I'm Yvonne, 40-something, happily married and a stay-at-home-mum to a teenage boy. I love reading, especially thrillers, baking, swimming and crafts such as crochet (blankets mainly), knitting (socks) and cross-stitching. I absolutely love tea and drink a lot of it and I very much prefer autumn and winter to summer. I'm not a heat person at all!
I find Postcrossing very addictive. It's really exciting to see where my next card will be sent to and of course finding one in my mailbox just makes my day!
I will appreciate every card I receive but like most postcrossers I do have some preferences - please just use them as guidelines if you don't know what to send, I will appreciate every card I receive:
*** landscapes, cityscapes and generally picture postcards from your country
- cards from these areas would make me especially happy:
US: New England states
UK: North and South Wales, Lake District, Peak District,
Northumberland, Yorkshire, National Trust Houses
*** food (especially if it's typical for your area)
*** anything colourful and/or quirky
*** US state map cards and other map cards
*** nouvelles images/other multiple cards
*** skyline views of big cities
*** Halloween cards in October / Christmas cards in November and December
However, I don't like touchnote cards and ad cards.
As for selfmade cards, if it's original art by you (i.e. if you're a painter of photographer) I'd love to see it. But please don't send me cut outs from cereal packets and the like - thanks.
I'd be very happy if you wrote something about yourself or your country on the card - things you like and don't like, what the weather is like where you live or what your area is famous for.
Or how about telling me your favourite tastes, smells or sounds - anything unusual or weird?
Thanks for picking a postcard and writing to me!
