Things I like

I am a textile artist and button maker from the Highlands of Scotland. I usually work in textiles but have developed a love for paper collage. You can see my work here https://www.instagram.com/mcanaraks/ and my blog here https://www.mcanaraks.com/blog/ I will post all of my handmade postcards here.. https://www.flickr.com/photos/mcanaraks/albums/72157709054199818

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy textile art, mixed media, tw/inchies ,collage, , photography, hand embroidery. I enjoy taking part in collaborative art projects.

things I like

I like vintage, old, distressed, abstract, found objects, buttons, driftwood, textures, pattern. handmade, one-off, quirky, wabi-sabi, hand stitching. I like interesting stamps, I always save them to use in future projects. I like paper ephemera with text in languages other than English. I love to receive handmade postcards. I prefer arty postcards rather than photos of your hometown. I would like to know your favourite word or phrase.

things I'm not so keen on

Not keen on cutesy, religion, cartoons, Disney. I'm not keen on multiview photo postcards of places. I prefer art postcards to tourist postcards, but an arty representation of your town would be great.

Comment: Thanks for the totally fun postcard - I love it! But is the glider man using that armadillo as a launch pad, or is he trying to lift it? Mysterious. [Bonus - the lovely postage stamps on the address side easily came off so i'll be able to reuse them on mailart...]
Response: Or maybe he landed on it? I'm so glad you like it, and I love that you will re-use the stamps, I do that as well :-)

Comment: Thank you for your bird postcard and stamps! It's awesome to have so many different kinds of bird-themed stamps in Scotland, as there are only a few of them in Hong Kong (some were the definitive stamps and hard to find now).

I received you Mystery Supply Swap, Star PC! Thank you. Fun card!

Sazza on Aug 7, 2019:

Sorry to keep you waiting! We had not heard of "The Kelpies" when we did our look up and then subsequent Google Earth visit around and down the waterway. However, once you mentioned it we did look it up. Gorgeous! Absolutely gorgeous! Day or night, they must be quite the sight to behold. I have to wonder what other hidden (or not) treasures you have in Scotland that I have never heard of but are worth seeing and researching. :)
