Hello! (or "Ahoj" in Slovak)
My name is Sophia and I live in small town in the middle of Slovakia. I'm student of High school. I like art, reading detective and mystery books, writing letters, crafting, painting, mail art, stationery, wax sealing, collecting stamps, listening music. I love animals, taking care of my hamster, I like going on walk and looking for Geocaches with my friends.
Currently I'm more active on swapping postcards on Instagram than sending official postcards. However, I love surprises, so sometimes I send few official cards. :)
I have a snailmail themed Instagram where I share my love for postcards ⬇️
My main and biggest priority is collecting postcards related to van Gogh. I'm really big fan of Vincent van Gogh ✨ and I'm obsessed about his paintings, so any postcard related to his art would be absolutely perfect for me. You can see my van Gogh's collection there, so please if possible don't send the same card as I already have. ⬇️
I know that it's hard to find van Goghs cards (especially when I already have many of them), so if you don't have anything related to van Gogh, just don't worry! :)
themes that I like too:
- cute illustrations, cartoon, colorful cards
- folk costumes, folk design, national costumes
- hamsters, mouses, guinea pigs, wolfs
- cherries 🍒
- pin-up girls, redheads
- sunsets, nightviews
- something typical of your country
- mailbox, postman, post-office, postcrossing, stamps, mail..
- Frida Kahlo
- Loupaper postcards (I already have snailmail, butterfly, fruits, crystals)
- covid19, quarantine, stay safe, masks themed cards
covid themed cards that I already have ⬇️
Or maybe you can look at my favorites for more inspiration. :)
I'm not a big fan of touristic postcards, but I don't mind. I appreciate all cards that I receive, even they are not by my preferences.
I prefer written and stamped postcards. PLEASE NO in envelope. In school I'm learning speak russian, so if you're from Russia, Belarus, Ukraine or any russian speaking country, you can write in russian.
I would love to know about you, your hobbies, something interesting about your country, memories,your favorite music, book, quote, football team.. decorated postcards, stickers, drawings and washi tapes are always welcome. I love colorfull written cards. :)
I can't wait for your friendly writing 🤗❤
