My name is Sophia and I'm teen from Slovakia. I'm student of High School, I like art, geography, reading books (especially detective&mystery), writing letters, crafting, painting, mail art, stationery, listening old music (but I also listen lot of Polish and Russian modern music). I love animals and taking care of my hamster, sometimes I do griddlers and crosswords. I like going on walk and looking for Geocaches with my friends and also I like to play TheSims4.
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 actually 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! :)
I appreciate all postcards that I receive. If you need an idea what postcard you should send, there are some themes that I like too:
- hamsters, mouses, guinea pigs, hedgehogs, deers, wolfs
- cherries, food, recipes
- folk costumes, folk design, national costumes
- pin-up girls, redheads
- sunsets, night views
- famous people
- train, bus, metro
- cute ilustrations, cartoon
- something typical of your country
- mailbox, postman, postcrossing, stamps, something related to post
- retro, pop art, comics, posters
- western, cow-boys, wild West
- Kahlo, Picasso, Warhol, Dali, Mucha, Klimt, Munch
- covid19, quarantine, stay safe, corona themed cards
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 have many football cards in my favorites, but I'm still not sure about to start new collection, but maybe some football themed postcards (especially related to Ac Milan, Serie A, Poland national football team, San Siro Stadion, Stadion Narodowy in Warszawa) would be great too! :)
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.. everything. :) decorated postcards, stickers, drawings and washi tapes are always welcome. I love colorfull written cards.
I like private swaps too, so if you want to swap with me magnets, tea-bags, stamps, beer coasters, newspapers, bookmarks, postcards, letters or anything else, let me please know. Also if you have something related to van Gogh (for example bookmark, used ticket from his museum, old calendar, poster or anything else) which you don't need anymore, I would really like to swap. :)
I can't wait for your friendly writing
