This is me ....

ALERT - Not sure what's happening with my mail at the moment - It's not arriving !!!! I posted off a whole bunch of swaps early January and they still not arrived. I'm very sad about this. So if you are my partner - please please please be patient. I will contact you when it has reached my 6-8 week panic date to arrange a re-send. Keeping my eye on each and every swap I've posted ... I am not a flaker nor a non-sender - promise.

Hello everyone; my name is Dee and I am from Johannesburg; South Africa

A Little About Me ....

I have a wonderful sense of humour; which is a little on the dark side :)) I am extremely easy going and open minded.


I am a spiritual person rather than a religious person. (I like Angels and Buddhas and Tarot Cards). I believe that there is good in everyone. I don't like conflict. But don't get on my bad side! That being said I forgive and forget very easily .......

I have "Wish It; Dream It; Do It" tattooed on my foot - that's my life's motto.

Things I love ....

In No particular order .....

  • The Beach


  • Ephemera

  • Tickets; ledger paper; unusual ephemera ....

  • Postcards - Naked and non-touristy - if possible please - and if a swap calls for touristy then obviously .....

  • Mail Art

  • Personal letters - I love hearing about your life across the world

  • Suprises!

  • Anything to do with Airmail (stickers; postcards; writing paper etc.)

  • Interesting Envelopes - Handmade or store bought

  • Die Cuts and Paper Flowers

  • Botanical Theme goodies - stamps; postcards; notepaper; notecards etc.

  • Teeny Tiny paper flowers for ATC's

  • Notecards - stationery - blank postcards (non-touristy please)

  • ATC's

  • Doodles

  • Crocheting

  • Cats and Dogs

  • Tattoos

  • My Children (xxx)

  • Wine

  • Reading

  • SENDING surprises :))

  • Photography... Love to take photos and look at photography. Always experimenting with my camera.

  • Whatever you would like to send ... I know I will love it! image

Dislikes .....

It has to be said ... sorry .... but I really don't like anything cutesy or touristy and I have got MORE than enough paper .... BUT .... Diddl is so cool !!!! We don't get the range here in South Africa ...

Postage .....

I mark sent on the day I put it in the postbox so the postal mark may be a day later.

(I have noticed that Snail Mail is taking longer and longer. I used to give it 6 weeks but It can take up to 8 weeks to arrive. I will send you a message if I think my swap is taking too long to reach you and probably do a re-send. I really don't mind doing re-sends.)


If I havent rated you - it means I havent received your swap. I ALWAYS rate! Normally on the day I receive it. Please contact me if you are in doubt....

Please also be courteous and rate me accordingly. I put alot of time and effort in to my swaps and it is really dissapointing when I don't receive your rating.


I have had complaints about envelopes arriving "mangled"- and "I should have taped it more" ... or "Why did you tape your envelope?" so either way I cant win ... so I tape ALL my envelopes. I have tried modge podge; gel medium; strong glue etc. etc. but the goodies just fall off on their travels .... or it gets torn etc. etc.

Saying that - I also dont mind if you tape your envelope or put it in a clear plastic sleeve ... it does not matter to me either way ..

mgallardo68 rated for HMPC: Profile Postcard #3 on Nov 10, 2017
Comment: What a wonderful envie you sent me Dee! I love your creations and I do not think I will share them ;-).... Beautiful ones and the greetings card and postcard with Native motifs are amazing! Please tell me what is that paper you used for the potential envelope? The surface has texture of a canvas but is paper! I am mesmerized... I love all and I hold it very tight! ♥♥
Response: I'm so happy it arrived! Thank you for the lovely rating Maria xx The paper I used is a "Mixed Media Pad" made by "Amedeo". Not sure if it is an imported or a locally made art pad. There are no contact details on it, but I'm sure you might find something similar in one of your art stores. Thanks again Maria - have a wonderful day x

Comment: What a fabulous package! You taped it up so well that I had to open it carefully with a craft knife. Guess what? It's so sturdy it's like a little storage pouch and I'm using it as such! I love the main image and all you added to it. A work or art for sure. Thank you
