I'm Reetta, 24 years old and from Tampere, Finland. I live with my lovely hyperactive daughter who is three years old now, my profile pic seems to be quite old. :)
I don't know which is better; getting a great card or writing a card. I love choosing a suitable card to an other user and writing it. It is good to see there are so many different tastes, we are all different but the same! I like to send people cards they prefer if I have them, but also cards that tell small things about us here.
I love stamps! Colourful fun ones especially. I prefer getting cards WITHOUT envelope, I like to see the stamps and postmarks in the card. (Of course when you make a card yourself you can use an envelope if you must?)
I tried to put some random cards to my favorites card wall, if you want to see.. Basic touristic view cards are N O T my favourites. But please don't say you're sorry if you don't have the kind of card that I prefer, its ok. I'm always happy getting mail!

I would love it if you wrote anything to the card. Like any ideas you had lately, your secrets, anything.. I love cards with special background, drawings, stickers etc. Music recommendations very welcome as well, I'm an addict, anything you find special goes!! You can also write with french, swedish and estonian (very muchly interested about eesti now). Simple german or spanish also. :) I'd love it.
And I know postcrossing is about postcards; but if you want to send me anything more extraordinary, like a letter, I'll be glad. (Maybe you can include some postcard there.)
I want to thank you all for the gorgeous cards I've received. Thanks!
If you have a scanner, could you scan the card you send. I only have a BAD camera
