About Me

Hello to everyone!

My name is Rina, I’m from Saint-Petersburg, Russia. Married, have 9 y.o. daughter that sharing my hobbies and interests😊

I’m crafty person, i like journaling and collaging (mostly in my handmade junk journals). I’m a postcrosser, stamp collector, huge stickers fan, washi obsessed and nature lover 🌿

I love written and stamped postcards, sent without envelope. But I‘m not picky!

If you’d like to choose a postcard (or anything paper=) based on my preferences, here are a few: mermaids, unicorns, Hayao Miyazaki and his creations, Saylor Moon anime, halloween themed postcards during the season (especially witches or pumpkins), woman (-en) reading, woman (-en) with cup of tea, oil paintings and illustrations (women portrait, flower bouquets in vases, still life with fruits, strange weird girls); modern art, fairytales and mythes of your culture, avocado, view of your city.

Could you please mark the date, your name/username and your city/country on the postcard or put a little note with this information to your envelope.

Here are some extra things I’ll be happy to receive (or make a direct swap): any flat and paper stationary goodies, stickers, candy wrappers, newspaper pieces, old book pages, washi tape samples, museum flyers and booklets, maps, all kind of tickets, junk mail, advertising brochures, subway maps, funny colorful band-aids and other cute paper ephemera.

Feel free to message me if you’d like direct swap with me😉

And please be patient while the correspondence is traveling. It may take few weeks to deliver… If you didn’t receive smth from me - please contact me and we’ll solve this problem.

Thank you!❤️

Favorite Books

I prefer audiobooks. My favorite genres are contemporary fiction, memoirs / biographies, detective stories. Also I’m a member of book club of St.Petersburg’s postcrossers:)

Favorite Movies

I founded online movie club to watch and discuss movies twice a week ^_^ I watch a lot of movies. But I’m not much into horrors and thrillers.

Favorite Television

I love TV series and animated television series! Some of my favorites are: The Big Bang Theory, Friends, Outlander, The Handmade’s Tale, Schitt’s Creek, The Rookie, American Family, Pocker Face, Adventure Time, Gravity Falls etc.

Favorite Crafts

I make journals, film videos for youtube (such as “journal with me”, “journal flip through” or crafty vlogs), love collaging. I also make soy candles, aroma diffusers and soap bars.

Important notes and dislikes

❗️ Some countries can’t send mail to Russia (USA, for example), as well as Russia can’t send mail to some countries. To be sure we can swap, please check your postal service site or Postal Monitor on postcrossing(dot)com site.

I’ll appreciate if you would NOT send any military, sports, political, religion or alcohol related things.

⚠️ Please do NOT send anything except paper things. Tea bags, magnets, sweets, key chains etc. are very cute! But according to Russian Post rules, it may be deleted from the letter or even whole envelope returned to the sender(
