I made a small order of postcards and lomo-cards during 11.11 sale on Aliexpress. It seems that the Internet is full of beautiful postcards, but it’s very difficult to choose among all the variety of products and I know, that any review can be useful, so I'm sharing one store I liked here.

Postcards with cats and flowers are already out of stock. It was a mini set of 10 postcards. What can I say? Kitties are nice, delicate light colors and a neutral mood of the plot. Will be perfectly combined with snail mails in different styles.

Lomo-cards with pencil illustrations of different animals - the link is here. The sweetest pictures that perfectly fits to the snail mails in various styles. Packed in a box, laid neatly. All the pictures are different. Only after I received them, I saw that there were funny inscriptions on the cards that convey the mood of the animals. The back side is empty.

Lomo-cards with watercolor illustrations - the link is here. Mimimeter rolls over! Here are wild and domestic animals in nice sweaters, with flowers, with letters, with tea. Suitable for different seasons (spring, winter, summer, autumn). The back side of the cards with lines, all the drawings are different. Packed in a box, laid neatly.

The whole package was wrapped in a pimply film and a bag. The order was shipped quickly, but because of the sale, the delivery took long time, but it's a problem of postal service, not the store. I am pleased with the order, I have looked at something else in this shop, I hope I will tell you about the new sets of cards soon.

Some time ago we (me and The Bird) saw this photo, which tells about a postcard swap between two cats and decided to try to make something like this.

I and Lala made the first postcard, using the watercolors to make a pawprint of Lala's write paw. And the answer was not long in coming ^^ We've got this admirable postcard made of Eshka's paws scan.
The first photo report is here.
To be continued..

This is a little sad, but happy story about my cat.
I was dreaming to have a cat since my childhood, but my father has an allergy so there was no way to take any pet at home. After I met my husband and we were living together, he knew about my strong love to cats and suddenly he made the biggest gift for me. He bought this lovely half main coon girl. He just went out for a half of day and returned back with a lovely kitten.
We gave her a name - Lala (but in the more soft way, maybe Lyalya will be more correctly).

She is gorgeous and brave. She is speaking with us all the time and she likes to see new people at home. She makes us happy.
And when my husband had blood test it showed that he has allergy (we didn’t noticed it, there were no any symptoms). So we had to find new place for cat. We were absolutely broken. We couldn’t imagine our days without her. We started to ask our friends and relatives but nobody wanted to take her. We were looking for any place for rent to make a workshop there and to settle Lala there, but it was too far or too expensive.

Finally we found a couple who could take our cat for some time and we could visit them any time. It was not too bad. Lala was scary when we brought her in new home, but after some days she was ok. I visited her maybe once a week, brought some food. After we had a trip abroad for a month and during this time happened some troubles. That couple who took cat had some urgent cases and they had to go to other city for several days. I think cat was alone more than three days. When we returned home we just took cat back, because people who took her were able to move and couldn’t take cat in new place.

Lala didn’t leave me alone even for a minute. She was really scary to be alone again. We didn’t know what to do next. And in the end my husband’s father (he live separate with his mother) decided to take Lala. He didn’t take her before because granny was strongly against it. She didn’t want even to hear about cat. But of course after couple days spent together with cat she changed her mind. Granny and cat love each other so much. When we visit them all the stories granny tell us are about Lala, it’s so funny.
Sometimes we take Lala home for some days. It’s not very dangerous for my husband, but brings us a lot of joy. That is why I don’t have too much photos with her, but I will share some as often as she will visit us.

Cats are my passion. And, although, I can not be attributed to the mad cat-lovers, who have a lot of clothes, wallpaper and other things with kittens, I have quite a lot of "cat's" stickers, tapes and postcards.
One of my favorite illustrations with cats made by Midori Yamada, her cats are so refined, elegant.
One evening, when I made out an envelope, I began to pick up goodies for it and I was so inspired by one sticker... First I decided to draw a few flowers near the sticker in the end of the letter. And then I tried to make a copy of this cat on the envelope. Because of watercolors paper a little hogged, but how tender and picturesque it came out.
