About Me

Life always gives us a second chance, it's called TOMORROW.

Don't worry about the world ending today. It's already TOMORROW here in Australia.

REMEMBER TO ALWAYS BE KIND

I have moved (April 2019) so I have a new address.
Things I like to do:
sketching,
bushwalking, swimming travelling through wide open spaces
I sometimes make ATCs. I also am heavily into journal making and all things journal related.
I help out a local vet sometimes just with animal feeding and cleaning out cages . I sometimes have to step away from mainstream life and reconnect to nature owing to severe depression but I am pushing myself to get on with life. I have been encouraged to keep working on my art/painting/drawing/collage so making journals and also ATCs helps me do that. I have now launched into the realm of mail art and it is great fun.
Themes I really like are:
Little houses
cats
owls
hd/hp girl faces
birds
elephants
chickens/chooks
pegasus
dragons (not cartoonish)
mermen and mermaids
sailboats
cacti
desert colours
Originality.
I collect images of contemporary artwork on postcards, notecards or clipped from magazines - something to inspire me!

I love receiving items for my scapbooks/smashbooks and journals ~ anything from the themes above or that I I can write on ie:

decorative notepapers
journal cards of any size
h/m or decorated envelopes
any odd or unusual small items

Mail art
Zines

Things I truly don't want are:

Anything ghosty, ghouly, witchy or halloween .
Vintage themes
Clowns
Creepy crawlies.
No holiday themes
I am not into penpalling

Sometimes my life is lived on the dark side as I suffer from depression and it takes it's toll on my personal life and relationships. Working with animals helps and so does bushwalking. Both give me space to breathe deeply and get in touch with the needs of others and the natural world.
I am a member of AFA where I also make and trade ATC's.

"You may say I'm a dreamer,
but I'm not the only one." - John Lennon

Comment: I really like that style of illustration. Lots of white space, delicate lines, bright ink colours. Reminds me of Picasso's bouquet. I completely agree with "Don't wait for someone to bring you flowers", in the winter months I buy myself inexpensive bouquets to brighten my kitchen window. Thank you for you uplifting zine.

Comment: Thank you for a nice mail. I really love all the PL cards and those Australian animal stickers are adorable. Rural area in Australia seems like a dream life. Here in Europe is now crazy hot weather, I am a bit jealous of you having winter right now. :)

Making a note for myself that it took 5-6 weeks for my mail to reach @mgallardo68 in Costa Rica.

I'm glad you got my resend for the decorated envelope swap. Too funny that as soon as I sent the new one, the old one shows up. I hope you enjoyed both of my envelopes! And thanks for waiting patiently.
