Hello, people from all over the world!
Facts About Me :
- I was born in Germany, grew up in Jakarta
- I've lived in Japan for about 6 years
- I love learning languages! Currently learning Korean.
- I love any kinds of arts and crafts
- I collect stationery, buttons and washi tapes :)
I really love colors! Any card with many bright colors will be much loved ♥ I also love any decoration/creative back side of postcards I receive (esp washi tapes!).
Postcards type wise, I prefer unique, creative photos/designs/illustrations than traditional touristy cards. Some of the things I like :
♡ Colorful balloons
♡ Random bright colored stuff
♡ Art and crafts supplies (paints, buttons, laces etc)
♡ Elmer the Elephant or other cute elephant illustrations
♡ Alice in Wonderland
♡ Pink roses and things with the color rose pink
♡ Flowers, purple flowers, close up of flowers
♡ Artworks of Alphonse Mucha, Andy Warhol, Erté, George Barbier, Cicely Mary Barker, Lia Selina (cute fairies)
♡ Mythical creatures, fairies, mermaids, fantasy and steampunk-themed cards
♡ Nouvelle Images Multiples
♡ Moomin, Smurf
♡ One Piece (anime/manga)
♡ Kumamon and other kawaii characters
♡ Cards of stamps or made of used stamps
♡ Handmade (please, something properly made)
♡ Daruma dolls/illustration
♡ Postal / Postcrossing related
♡ Fashion, shoes
♡ Butterflies (multiple and in art preferred instead of in the wild)
♡ If you're an artist or photographer, I would love to see your artwork! :D
I don't mind ad cards if they are in one of the categories above :)

Please don’t worry if you don’t have anything that matches the list above! I love so many different things it's impossible to write them all down. Just choose a card that you would be happy to receive yourself and tell me about it (or choose one which has the most vibrant colors!).
The back of the card is a very important part of postcrossing to me. I appreciate beautiful stamps and heartfelt messages :) Please write a lot. Share me a story. Tell me about your day, where you got the postcard, why you like it, draw something, anything. I always think of a postcrosser I'm writing to as someone who is close to me, it is easier to write a lot that way.
Looking forward to receive postcards from around the world :)
