Favorite Music

please do not send me any touristy postcards.... prefer postcards unwritten and in an envelope if that is an option in swap. I really hoped I get a Leonard Cohen stamp from one of my Canadian partners..and this morning I got my first one!

l enjoy lots of music, including Krisna Das and J Goldman, and went to a drumming concert and also saw a Bob Dylan tribute band.

About Me

I live by the ocean and enjoy walking to my nearest village, especially on a sea misty morning. I enjoy participating in handmade postcard swaps, (365 postcards completed in 2018 -Dec 24th - hooray!!) I made them in batches- I also do art journal page swaps. I joined 'postcrossing' to send and used to receive regular postcards. I take part in the .'Postcards of Kindness.' project, I love steam punk, vintage, scripts in other languages, tigers, coffee and swapping ephemera . I really appreciate all the members who host swaps...where would we be without them?

Favorite Television

I like Poldark, and live in Poldark country. Winston Graham wrote the Poldark series when he lived in my vilIage. I like Murdoch Mysteries and Dancing on Ice which is on again next year. Loved Big Bang Theory and Young Sheldon as well as Scorpion. .... loved The Great British Sewing Bee and currently sulking as Downton Abbey re-run is over ... as is the Great British Bake Off . Strictly Come Dancing started again ..yippee!..but only 2 weeks left. I think Chris might win it if he avoids the dance off this week, even though Karim and Kelvin are fab dancers/performers.

Favorite Crafts

I participate in regular art journal page swaps, where I am learning about tucks and pockets and all sorts. I'm more confident with textured paste, and working with stencils...and enjoy creating ATC's..recently in an alphabet swap...finally made XYZ --it went well.. The alphabet postcard swap continues again from the beginning..currently on I and J.

Comment: Thanks for the bold and bright page!
Comment: Thank you for sharing your thoughtful postcard art! Being a senders-choice swap you certainly did NOT have to make something friendly to me and my family needs. However, I am SO VERY GRATEFUL that you did! Thank you for reading that part of my profile and being considerate of my wishes! I hope that my request didn’t squelch your creativity by much...but, please know that I LOVE the hearts and the colors you selected!!! This is a great DIY PC! 🤩

Comment: FOLLOW UP: Just had to change the rating to include a <3 (heart). Zannie you are so wonderful to send me an RAK Dance PC in an envie to make up for the first one that was chewed up badly by the p.o. We never talked about a re-send, and I never expected you to send one. I gave you a 5 for the first one. But you did this all on your own! It was wonderful to go to my mailbox and find a true RAK waiting for me. So, I am adding a Heart to your rating for being so kind. Thank you for renewing my faith in people. You are a good-hearted, charitable, and considerate person. :-) <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 Thank you for the PC. You have a wonderful background in dance! I took ballet and tap when I was 5, and modern dance when I was about 10. Didn't stick with either one... but I love to watch the ballet!
Response: thank you for the heart..glad your faith is renewed x

Comment: Oh, yes, this is very wintry! Like your use of texture & images. Snow isn’t all that prevalent here, either—what falls is gone in a couple of days due to the surrounding salt water. Thanks for being my partner.
