About Me

Last updated: July 9, 2015


My name is Krisztina, but I like Tina, too. I live in Hungary, a small country in the centre of Europe.


My son is the Joy in my life. Ábel is 4 months old in the photo:


I used to swap FB's, Decos, Slams and other items (magazine clippings, letter papers, postcards..) in the '90's. You are all wonderful people who keeps snail mail still alive!

I like postcard and country swaps the best, also favourites are the scavenger hunts, profile and themed swaps, matchboxes, ATC's, ephemeras and challenges. I'm afraid I'm obsessed with papers! :) And now with pocket letters!

I always send out all my swaps, I take it very seriously. BUT I'm easy going on complaining not received or not rated swaps. IF I HAVEN'T RATED YOU, I haven't received. But ask about it on my message wall, not in pm, since I have an email- and message reading phobia (I also have this phobia about answering the phone...it sounds funny, but I think it's growing on me...). Don't worry, in spite of these phobias, I'm normal. Swap-bot and snail mail helps me to be happy and contacted...

I'M LOOKING FOR swap partners who also thinks that FREE or AD postcards are interesting and it worth collecting them. I have hundreds for trade, mostly from the era between 1998 and 2005. So if you do swap free/ad postcards, feel free to join my group.

If you feel like, add to your friends on Facebook.

Some interesting stuff about my country:

Tipical foods in my country

Fashion from my country :)

My Projects


I'd like to spread the ATC movement in my country. So anything to make them or receiving some "show-piece" made with different techniques, would be very appreciated and treasured. I'm on to organize groups.


My other plan is to make an exhibition about the US states shown on postcards. So I collect all maps and other state related postcards, like state symbol postcards, state infos, state capitals and capitols :) I don't list, which state I have, because I need at least two from each. (If you don't want your name to shown at the exhibition -as a supporter - please say!)


My favourite place in our town is the (vintage) toy museum, which allows a cabinet to the visitors for using. I'd like to get that for my children themed postcards collection, so I need postcards with

  • vintage, retro or modern toys,
  • children playing with toys,
  • children book illustrations,
  • other child/tale themes on them.

Holiday related cards with these themes are also fine (for example a child reading a story-book sitting under the Christmas tree...).


My lifelong project is to collect a postcard from every country - and their capital - in the world, and from many many places where people live (not only towns, villages...).

Thank you, if you can help to achieve these plans.

My Family

My husband likes:

  • Informatics related stuffs:notepad, keyring, etc. with Linux, Ubuntu, Android, Apple, Mac, etc....but NO Windows!),
  • Instant coffee, hot chocolate, English Breakfast tea, any STASH tea, chewing gum (except Wrigley's and Orbit, what we can get here too)
  • Healthy snacks.

My son

wears EU 80 size clothes and EU 19-22 socks. Any toy that a 1,5 year old can enjoy. Healthy snacks.

My sister-in-law

is an elementary school teacher, so reward stickers and any teaching related stuff is welcomed (in English is OK).

Books, Movies, TV...

I'm not a bookworm. I'm still looking for these: books

I don't have a favourite writer, but I would like to find him/her :) I've enjoyed reading Chuck Palahniuk.

I like reading fantasy, even if it is for children (His Dark Material) and I like Tao Te King - my favourite quote

I'm looking for books about martial arts and social work, and Chinese language learning books.


I like all kinds of movies! Especially if they act in it: Pierce Brosnan, Sean Connery (first of all, I'm a fan of James Bond - 007), Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino, Bruce Willis, Sylvester Stallone, Bud Spencer&Terence Hill, John Cleese, Eddie Murphy, Mel Gibson, Keanu Reeves, Leonardo DiCaprio, Geoffrey Rush, Uma Thurman, Julia Roberts, Cameron Diaz, Marvel Heroes :) I like watching European movies and TV series too, especially Scandinavian dramas and French comedies :)

My favourite martial art star is Mark Dacascos :)

I also like Asian movies - not only the kung-fu ones! I like Hayao Miyazaki's cartoons :)

I've watched all or the first some seasons from these and enjoyed:

Heroes, Falling Skies, Warehouse13, Eureka, Under the Dome, Desperate Housewives, Two and a Half Men, Dirty - Sexy - Money, Dexter, Hannibal, The Walking Dead, Bones, Dr. House, Doctor Who, Supernatural, Angel. Yes, I haven't hooked on Game of Thrones yet, first I would like to finish other series on my list :)

I still love some classics: The A-Team, Dukes of Hazard, Murder She Wrote, You rang, M'Lord?

The best show ever which still makes me laugh: The Fawlty Towers (BBC 1975-1979)

I like these reality shows: Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, American Pickers, Pawn Stars and Storage Wars, Hotel Impossible.

When I was younger I loved Pokemon, Sailor Moon :)

I don't listen to music regularly, but I like genres from classics to metal. (I've also been to concerts of David Helfgott and Iron Maiden.)

Not my interest

nolike cruelty, torture, war (I don't watch movies about it), blood (except in Kill Bill:)), fishing&hunting, Cartoon Network, Windows, smoking (but I like the smell of tobacco!), sewing, knitting and so on, sweetlovestory-style books, movies and music, too much kawaii, childish or kitschy things (but I like cute)

Please don't send, I have too many: hand cream, face cream, lipbalm, cosmetics, deodorant, perfume...

FOOD I DON'T LIKE: mint tea, mint chocolate, bubblegum/chewing gum, hard candy/lollipops, sour cream & onion crisps, fish and sea fruits taste and I'm not a big fan of meat (but I'm not vegetarian)

Thank you

...for reading my profile!

Meet in a happy swap!




what I pledged

I always try my best sending in time. If I am late (don't worry, it's not my passion), I'll contact you. If there is any problem with my swap, please, also contact me before rating! From Hungary it takes a long time to arrive outside Europe. If I can, I reuse packaging!

Hungary uses the date format like this: YYYY/MM/DD

...and we write addresses here in a slightly different way than the one swap-bot shows to you. If you use this form, may I get your mail easier:

  • # Name
  • # City (Székesfehérvár)
  • # Street
  • # Postcode (H-8000)
  • # Country

Figure out the other info :)

The following info is just a reminder for me, so DON'T have to read it...it's like a neverending profile! :)

Hi there! I sent you a message a while back, but now re-read your profile about asking here. Did you ever receive the chocolate pc from me? It was mailed to you on December 29th. Thanks for checking.

Hi Krisztina, your missing Christmas Envie #3 was resent to you yesterday, Jan 11. The Post Office weighed and metered the postage, and I paid for hand canceling. I certainly hope the package makes it to you safely. I used the exact address you have posted here. Happy New Year!

taeniura on Dec 19, 2015:

Many thanks for your sweet christmas card! It made me very happy! Merry christmas to you too :-)

I have private messaged you two times about the fancy napkins swap. I sent your package today, it cost over $10 USD so I hope this makes up for my mistake on only sending 5 the first time. Again, my apologies.
