About Me

I'm a mother of two boys (3&9), own a parrot and am a practical nurse, I work with the elderly people. My workplace is really closeby and I enjoy my short distances. I like to ride a bike to places and I love to visit second hand fleamarkets and to cloth my kids!

I enjoy travelling, seeing new places and meeting people. I just love, love, love snailmailing and all that comes with it! I'm also active in Postcrossing. You see me often in postcard-swaps due to my 'obsession' over them 😃 I like my tea with milk & honey and coffee with cream 😉

I live in the capital but deep in my heart I wish I could have a house in the countryside - I love the nature! Every spring/summer I transform my balcony into a small garden.

I have always loved receiving mail, esp.postcards! If I know someone travelling somewhere, I always ask them to send me one. I love my mail with real stamps on them. The more the merrier 😉

Send me a card decorated with washi/stamps/stickers/ decorative handwriting (or what else) and I promise you, my heart will take an extra beat - for joy! 😊

And yes - this seems to be in about every second profile so I'll also add mine ;) I always send my swaps, so far I've always been on time and that's where I like it, I don't flake, I'm here to have fun - not drama (has there ever been?). If you don't get my swap, then it's gone.. but hey, I'll resend, so swipe the tears away - just let me know 😊

Favorite Books

I'm reading too little these days, I just can't find enough time but the last book i read was Harry Potter and the cursed child, Lord of the Rings is amazing and then i enjoy Robin Cook's books and I'm a big fan of Torey Hayden's books as well.

Favorite Movies

Romance, comedy and action - separately or all together 😊

Favorite Television

Some of my favorite tv shows are Bones, Scorpion, Rizzoli & Isles and the C.S.I -"family". Again - not enough time to watch tv. Oh, and I love The Incredible Dr. Pol!

Favorite Crafts

When i have time, i make my own Christmas cards. I used to swap Decos years and years ago and I enjoyed them quite a bit.

Favorite postcards

I'm a BIG fan of postcards!

I always check everyone's profiles for likes/preferences (even though it would be sender's choice!). I always try to find the right card among that, if it just is possible. I appreciate if you read mine, I basically have just a few no-no's and a huuuuge list of likes. I never send unwanted leftovers to anyone, even if it'd be Sender's choice - I'm sure you wouldn't appreciate getting them either, right 😉

Which kind do I like then? All kinds actually, sure I've got my favorites but as long as You find the card beautiful or interesting - then there's a meaning for it!

  • Scenery (nature, city highlights, panoramic, specific building/monument/happenings etc. Cards of your surroundings/country are always fascinating, as that way I get a glance at your life.

PLEASE I prefer you wouldn't send touristic cards BLANK (I really prefer them Only written & stamped and preferably Only from origin/region. Thank You😊)

  • ♡♡♡Mapcards, of your surroundings/country/ USstates♡♡♡

  • Lighthouses / bridges / castles / windmills / gardens

  • Rain, fog, wind, thunder

  • Natural phenomenons of your area

  • Mailboxes

  • Unesco

  • Folklore tales& stories, urban legends, ghost stories

  • Artistic (fairytales, stories, modern, illustrated)

  • Patterns

  • Colorful, shaped, untypical, zany

  • Old cars and trains, horse carriages, bicycles

  • GF (Greetings from..) - Official or unofficial, as far as it comes from the origin! So far I have: France, Belgium, Lithuania, Thailand, Taiwan, UK, USA, Jordan, Germany and Bulgaria

  • Holiday related; Christmas cards in December, Easter cards around Easter etc, Birthday cards welcome too 😊

All in all, I'm happy with all - every single card makes me happy, just surprise me! But keep the erotic/nudistic or religious cards for someone who collects them 😊 Selfmade cards ok if made well and with thought 😊

** Note: If sending blank cards please no touristy because I only want them travelled (written and stamped).
