Hello dear Postcrosser,
you probably already know, but I'd like to inform you that this community is wonderful! Between May 2015 and May 2016 I asked for postcards celebrating the birth of my niece Camilla. The response of Postcrossers from around the world was outstanding, just have a look at my wall between NL-2908685 and JP-795526 to understand what happened (it's a pity you can't see the back of some postcards). It was a great present for her first birthday. THANK YOU!
Now I’m back with a new project because my brother Francesco and his wife Ylenia did it again, but this time… THEY’RE TWINS!! On 5th March 2018 niece Sveva (right) and nephew Gregorio (left) were born and again I’d like to receive postcards celebrating their birth. My idea is to collect stuff in various languages showing what happens around the world in such a happy occasion and give them everything as a gift for their first birthday.
It would be great to receive a card (I’m NOT asking for two cards, obviously) dedicated to newborns with a message printed on the front in your language, like “Welcome” or “Congratulations” or “Happy Birthday” (since this will be a birthday present in 2019) etc. etc.
If you’re a creative person you can make a card and draw/write on the front something in your language that you find suitable, whatever you decide is fine for me.
***NB*** Don't worry if you don’t find or make such cards: send me an “ordinary” card then and please write a message for Sveva and Gregorio on the back in your native language. In this case please choose a card showing where you’re writing from: notable monument/building/village/city, typical landscape, animals in their natural environment (not in a zoo), people in everyday life or doing some craft work, comics, food/drinks, etc.
Also, thanks for NOT sending advertisements/logos, weapons/soldiers/war or religion-related cards.
It is IMPORTANT in any case that you send something related to your country and that you use your own language, please: I’d like to teach them how big and varied the world is. If your mother language is Italian, English, French, Spanish or German then no translation is needed.
In the past other Postcrossers sent me different versions of my name written in different alphabets and I liked it: Riccardo becomes 瑞卡多 ริคคาโด रिकार्डो Рикардо ريكاردو リカルド Рікардо ריקרדו ሪካርዶ 列卡度 리카르도 Ριγκαρδο Рыкарда რიკარდო …
If your writing system is not Latin, could you please write the names Sveva [‘zvɛ:va] and Gregorio [gre’gɔ:rio] in your alphabet? Thank you.
I'm sorry for making so many requests, but try to understand me: I'm in love! ♥
