Postcrossing to the #1 USA Postcrosser

us-1670757

Yesterday I was assigned to send a postcard to the #1 poscrosser in the USA (at least right now), motherbrando. She has sent nearly 4000 postcards in her 6 years on Postcrossing. (I've also been on Postcrossing for more than 6 years, but I've only sent a little more than 700!) Gulp. She has a very full profile and seems like an interesting person. I chose a books/reading postcard shown above: "Lesebuebchen" (little boy reading) by Martina Hoffmann, from bizarrverlag.com, though I purchased mine in a bookstore somewhere. I hope she enjoys the postcard!

  2. Wonderful postcard! Renee is a sweetheart. We send postcards back and forth and she writes a very full postcard ... if there is white space, it must be filled! I suggested that she and I try out for Amazing Race because last year I was the top sender (as Zmrzlina) and I figured that we could run with the postcard theme and be the token odd couple ;-)

  3. Thanks for the positive feedback! PostMuse, I thought you were the top sender there for a while. How lovely that you two exchange postcards - and I happened to write her a very full postcard with tiny writing filling the space, so I'm glad she employs the same practice!

  4. Wow, almost 4000 sent cards! That's very impressive. After reading Renee's fun profile, it looks like you made a perfect card choice for her.

  6. Aah, reminds me of the happiest times of my childhood - those spent lost in books! I wanted to share with you my most recent blog post, as I have photographed some vintage stationery treasures from my collection.
