Hello fellow postcrosser,
I am looking forward to receive your card!
I was born in Italy but I have been living in Holland for most of my adult life.
I am a paper lover, I create small things with mixed media and make cards and collages with beautiful new or recycled/old paper.
I love reading, cooking, scrapbooking, classic music, poetry... I am the proud owner of a Little Free Library.
I love vegetarian dishes, cappuccino and Earl Grey tea : )
I collect post stamps with portraits of women and paintings, bookmarks and die cut vintage paper scraps ( poezieplaatjes, cromos troquelados).
You can see my card collections on Flickr:
These are all the cards I received. There is also one album of cards for swap.
I love to read about you, your thoughts on life, art and love, that's why I like to receive cards in an envelope, there is more space to write : )
If you don't know what to write send me a short poem or a beautiful quote.
I like folded cards too.
Please do not send tourists cards, I really don't like them. If you don't have acces to another kind of cards send me a piece of colourful cardboard with a beautiful stamp : )
My favourite themes (in random order) are:
- reading women
- the poetry of silence
- contemporary illustration art
- illustrations by Jane Ray
- illustrations from the fairytale "The Princess and the Pea"
