About Me

** Dec 2019 - the bushfires and resulting air pollution are pretty bad in and around our area at the moment, and have been all along the East coast for weeks. As international mail goes through Sydney airport, the fires may impact on the length of time it takes for mail to reach you. Please consider this before rating down, I am always happy to resend once a reasonable length of time has passed. This may be up to six weeks, may be more atm. Thanks. **

Hi! I'm a mum of two kids, one primary and one at high school, relocated from the UK to Australia. My husband travels a lot for his job, and we love to receive postcards/mail from around the world, collecting stamps and coins from as many different places as possible :)

I'm a bit of a craft/book/chocolate lover, dabbling in lots of different areas. My favourite crafts at the moment are based around painting/journaling, although I've tried my hand at most things, from quilting and embroidery to mosaics and painted stones.

I have a wide variety of interests, some of my favourite postcard subjects are: illustrated quotes (also handdrawn), woodcut pictures, pictures from fairy tales, Art - Alphonse Mucha, Hiroshige, Rackham, Tiffany glass, Egyptian or Asian inspired, traditional clothes/crafts/foods, historical buildings, colourful/rainbow collections eg spices, flowers, famous landmarks, sunrise/sunset/stars/city lights, pen/ink and watercolour sketches, vintage travel, chalkboard art, Erte/ Art Deco design, beach/ocean, Mediterranean landscapes.

I particularly enjoy swaps involving beautiful handmade items (mail art, ATC, postcards, craft items, etc) or junk journal supplies, including washi tape!! Favourite themes for washi or paper include succulents and cacti, the sea, water colour designs, Asian influence, flowers, Moroccan/African designs, space, mermaids, unicorns and fairy tales. I'm not too keen on block colours, simple geometric designs, or quotes on tape. Please don't send tea bags (unless specific to the swap) or cutouts from magazines.

I've done some postcrossing and happy mail swaps elsewhere before finding swap bot, so I'm looking forward to joining in here! The post from Australia can take a while, so please be aware it may take a bit longer to reach you than from most other places!

Comment: Thank you for the nice selection of stamps! I will now have to give Australia another page of my stamp book as the amount of Australian stamps just doubled :) Thanks for the extra cards too, they are really nice! I just have few swaps coming up that I can use them for.

Comment: Hello, thanks for the postage stamps along with the stamp card. I'll send its way on to the Netherlands tomorrow. I really liked the envelope as well, with its varied stamps and of course the coffee sticker and music in the corner. Nicely done!

Comment: Perhaps my favourite Christmas Card ever! I really enjoyed your note and Xmas memory. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Sydney card with the landmarks. I was thrilled with the washi ... all new and different samples of symbols I hunt for. Many thanks Karen and Merry Christmas to you.

Comment: I finally got my washi samples! sorry about this whole debacle. It sucks that the original never showed up, sorry about the hand made envelope going missing!
Response: ETA response to previously deleted rating: I did reply, as soon as I got your message. I told you that post to and from Australia very often takes longer than the time anticipated by swapbot, as many others here can attest to. I also said that I would be happy to resend if you had not received anything in the next few weeks. You asked me if I had sent the swap, when it can be clearly seen on the listing details that I had. I will resend, but chances are that it is still in transit. In fact, I have just checked my sent messages, and it shows that the message I sent you on Oct 20 has been read. I will screenshot it and am happy to send it to you for confirmation, but I don't know how you think I haven't replied if it is marked as read. ETA (Dec '19) : glad the resend arrived with no problems.
