I am traveling overseas until from August 28th to September 19th. I may be slow to reply to messages and I will rate any cards received while I’m away when I get back from my trip.
I come from a land down under aka Australia so please be patient when waiting for swaps to arrive. Your patience will be reciprocated on my end as I know things sent to me usually take a while as well. Thank you
Due to the time difference between Australia and the US, there may sometimes be a difference in the date I mark as sent, and the date of the postmark. Anything I post from Friday evening onwards is usually not postmarked until the following Monday
I'm a 29 yo female from Melbourne Australia and have decided to rekindle my interest in swapping postcards after a 10 year hiatus. Some fun facts about me: I'm a twin (have a twin sister Anna), I'm a vegetarian, I'm left handed and I share a birthday with Hello Kitty!! My favorite colours are purple and pink. I have two rescued ex-racing greyhounds called Suzie and Sandy
I used to make handmade crafts for swapping but I don’t have as much time for that, so I’m just sticking with postcard swaps at the moment. Maybe I will get back into crafting some day.
My interests include:
drinking tea, gardening, plants, bonsai, terrariums, botanical art, watercolour painting, desserts and cakes, reading, listening to music, collecting postcards, travelling, other countries and cultures and foreign languages, the environment, social justice and human rights issues.
As far as postcards go, I prefer handmade postcards or "arty" postcards, I'm not so into touristy postcards. I do collect free postcards as well so long as they are a bit "arty" looking and not just blatant advertising.
I’m happy to receive my postcards naked and stamped, with the exception of senders choice cards which I’d prefer in an envelope, so I can pass them on if they don’t fit in with my collection/tastes. Also if you are sending cards to me from multiple swaps, I don’t mind if you want to combine them in an envelope to save on postage.
I love participating in and hosting themed postcard swaps, so if you do too, please come and join my group: Postcards on a Theme INTL
Things I don't like include meat, spiders, cockroaches, dung beetles, apples, grapes and really 70's and 80's patterns. I also dislike all forms of bigotry (sexism, racism, homophobia and so on).
ABOUT RELIGIOUS ITEMS: please do not send me any religious items. I have nothing against any religion, but would just prefer not to be sent such items. It's not that I find any religion offensive, on the contrary I'm all for religious freedom, but I'm not really religious myself so I don't really have any use for religious items.
Le Petit Prince (aka der Kleine Prinz or the Little Prince), Babar the elephant, Elmer the elephant, Hello Kitty, Chococat, Totoro and other Miyazaki related characters, the Very Hungry Caterpillar
I try my best to rate every swap I receive, but I sometimes get a little confused, especially if I don't get a chance to get onto swap-bot for a few days. If you think I should have rated you for something and I haven't, just send me a friendly PM to remind me!! Thanks :D
I received a card on April 24, a "Desert in Bloom" card from Arizona, with no swap name or swap-bot username on it, please PM me if you sent this card so I can rate you. Thank you :)
Please message me if you would like to do a private postcard swap.
