About Me

I have a couple of extra postcard bags that I would like to get moving along. If anyone is interested in taking one (or two) off my hands please PM me and I will post out to you.

I am looking for a Becky Doherty from Lake Luzerne, I have an old Traveling PC Swap postcard of hers that I would like to return to her as the swap is no longer running.

I have redone my to trade pc collection. The link is above. Its a work in progress and I have started with the easiest stuff, and add more as I get time. Please PM me if you are interested in any :)

I have some Label bags and a postcard bag that I have had for longer than I should. I have had no one to send them on to. If you are interested please let me know so I can get these moving. Thanks :D

There is not a single mail box in New Zealand that gets emptied on a Saturday or Sunday. If I mark the item as sent on a Saturday or Sunday, it is because I am off to the post office for stamps (if I have run out) and will drop my mail in the box when I am there. If you are going to be stuffy about a day or two difference in the postmark, then I feel sorry for you. Life for you must be hell.

Now onto the serious stuff:

Hello my name is Cindy and I am addicted to postcards.

I am in my 40s. I moved to New Zealand 10 years ago from South Africa with my now hubby Dominick, we married on 20st April 2011. My husband has Multiple Sclerosis, which he manages very well (fingers crossed). We have no children by choice. We have a male cat called Kwali and as from 2 Dec 2016 a little black female cat I have named Poppy. I don't smoke or drink alcohol (just don't have a taste for either). I follow a refined suger free, gluten free, egg free, soy free, dairy free and chemical free diet. We make 99% of our own food. I do like organic sugar free chocolate, how can I not have some kind of chocolate, life just wouldnt be worth living. And I love to try herbal infused organic teas with no false "flavours" in them.

I also love science fiction and fantasy books and movies. And I enjoy getting into good Victorian era murder mysteries. As well as Agatha Christie and that era. good old fashioned stuff.

Spring is my favourite time of the year, just between the cold of winter and the heat of summer, where all the pretty flowers start to bloom and baby animals are being born.

I love tea, black being my favourite, Especially Earl Grey. I dont drink Camomile, for some reason it gives me stomach cramps when I drink it. I LOVE cinnemon!

My favourite movies / tv are: Equilibrium, Avatar, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Appleseed, Witchblade (the anime version), Ghost in the Shell, The Hobbit, Kungfu Panda, Pirates of the Carribean series, Star Wars, Star Trek, The Matrix Trilogy, all the Riddick's, Miss Fishers Murder Mysteries, Midsommer Murders, Ancient Aliens, Downton Abbey, Poirot, Miss Marple, Vera..... just to name a few.

Im a bit of a Harry Potter fan, I have all the books and one day hope to have extended versions of the movies on DVD and to also go visit Harry Potter world (either UK or US I don't mind).

I am part of Postcrossing too, and I love it. One of the ladies I received a postcard from mentioned Swap-bot, that's how I came to be here. I never thought I would love swapping soooo much....

My favourite colours are: Dark blues, dark purples, dark pinks, dark greens, reds and black.

I would love to do private PC swaps and am always looking for postcard pals.

I have a pile of postcards that I would love sent back to me. If anyone is interested in doing a private "Return to sender" swap please let me know.

I like to host swaps, should you not receive your swap from your partner even after you may have managed to get hold of them for a resend, I will happily Angel just let me know.

Favourite Stuff

I am a HUGE Star Wars fan.

I love good old fashioned murder mysteries and period dramas.

Bumblebees and bees and ladybugs. Im always rescuing bumblebees and bees in the garden with sugar water.



Belly dancing, I haven't done it for years, but I would still love to someday.

Dita Von Teese or any Burlesque for that matter.

Deftones is my most favourite favourite band.

I love kung fu movies, I have seen so many that I love that it would take forever to list them.



I dont like receiving PCs that are a cut out from a cereal box or some other random thing. I only send out store bought PCs so I kind of expect to receive store bought or very nicely hand made/art PCs. I will give a 3 if I get a PC cut out from some random box you got out of your kitchen cupboard.

I do not mind handmade, but only if the swap allows them.

I am not religeous, so please don't sent me religeous or spiritual stuff.

PCs Im looking for

I prefer my postcards sent stamped and naked, or naked and stamped (that is sent not in an envelope). I have this thing that a postcard is not complete unless it has been written on.

I have decided to collect a postcard of each an every animal in the world. A momentous task you say! Yes it is! Challenge accepted :)

I am looking for the following (I will update this list regularly), I have a folder with all my animail postcards in the "My collections" link at the top of the page here, just in case you want to double check what I have, or just out of curiosity. I will update it regularly.

Here is what I am looking for:

Bats, yes the flying kind.




Andean Cat

Clouded leopard

Siberian tiger

Bat-eared Fox

Indian or Benghal Fox

March Hare

Sun Bear


Rock hyrax

Tiger or Bull Shark (depending on where you are in the world)

Hammerhead shark

Any dolphin except common dolphin.

Comic book covers


City View PCs with the name on the front.

Country postcards

Map postcards

Princess Diana

Kate Middleton

Space or science fiction


Ancient Egyptians

Erupting volcanoes

Dramatic weather scenes

Harry Potter

Lord of the Rings

Star Trek

Star Wars

Halloween (we don't get any Halloween stuff here in NZ)

Goth or Gothic scenes



Dracula / Vampires (but the scary ones- please NOT Edward, or True Blood, I like the old school vampires)

Vintage comics / movies like Bride of Frankenstein and Vampirella

Crop Circles

Froy & Dind (I received one in a tag and I absolutely love it!)

Kathy821 on Feb 26, 2018:

HI, I see that you didn't receive your swaps a couple years ago. I would love to make this up to you. I am so sorry that it happened. Life was unbelievable for me at the time and I didn't even feel safe in my home because of my daughter and her Children's father. We now have the children. I would be happy to send you a map postcard separately as well.


Drachenfrau on Feb 16, 2018:

2nd batch sent. :-*

denimblu14 on Feb 14, 2018:

Thank you very much Cindy for the kind thought of sending me some postcards for a WTA you hadn't signed up to. The postcards are lovely I esp like the scene showing the lighthouse :)

Drachenfrau on Feb 6, 2018:

First postcards sent today. Didn't want to send them all at once, so you'll have more happy mail days. :-*
