I just sent my 1st Postcrossing card – and it’s going to Russia! I’m so excited. 🙂 I was in Russia in 2000 and fell in love with the culture. To celebrate my first postcard, I’m sending something special. I’m sending a regular postcard, plus a card that I drew. Lyudmila’s profile said she collects “fruit & vegetable stickers” (stickers taken off produce), and I was low on food anyway, so I went to the grocery store and stocked up. I covered the inside of the card with tape, so that the stickers will peel off easy. (I had so much fun doing it, plus I really stocked up on healthy food tonight!)
UPDATE May 6, 2012: Hurray! My card reached its destination in 23 days after traveling 8,106 km! Lyudmila wrote: “I received your card and an envelope! I (am) lost in admiration! Thank you very much! I very much like your card and especially a card in an envelope, stickers and stamps on an envelope. Thanks! It is very unexpected!(…)” 😀 That’s so sweet! We’re going to swap some cards and stamps! I can’t wait!
