On Wednesday August 26th I will be Braving the Shave to raise money for Macmillan.
Read more about why here...
I completed this and raised over £650 :D
Group - I have created a group for Postcard lovers and will be running weekly/monthly swaps.
and on to another year, 2016, my bucket list for this year is...
lose more weight (1stone 12lb's so far)
volunteer at our local village school - still want to do this but health got in the way!
get a job - and this!!!
host and join many swaps on swap-bot - how can I not lol
finish organising my craft stuff and start making some cards and ATC's
and a few more things too hopefully :)
My name is Lucy, 35 years old and I collect postcards, thimbles and bracelet charms, along with a few other things (novelty notes, currency, stamps are just to name a few).
I enjoy swapping (especially postcards) and although I have been on a break for a number of years I have finally decided to do it again. I only have a small postcard collection but would like to make it grow into a worldwide one. One from each state in the US is something I would like to have but know this will take a long time, it will be a great journey for me along the way though :).
I am not able to travel much due to money and also mobility issues so I see the world through postcards.
Postcards that are... Christmassy, buildings, cute, viewcards, multi viewcards, state cards, map, landmarks, and with animals on and Greetings from (Official PostalLove ones) will be much appreciated along with anything else...
...but please don't send me anything religious, clowns and advertisement cards as these are not something I am interested in.
I do however love my postcards Naked (written and stamped) please, unless the swap calls for being sent in an envelope :)
I will also be happy to do private swaps (setup on swapbot) for the above postcards :)
I have a kitty and her name is Nova, she loves CatNip toys, Dreamies, Blankeys and any stray pieces of paper!
I enjoy crafting, mainly handmade cards and I am hoping to get into scrap-booking too. I also enjoy making friendship books (but haven't done any for a while) and would like to get into other crafts when I've got my craft stuff organised.
I would like to try making altered trading cards (ATC's) and other small items (inchies etc.), I have so many idea's and would love to turn them into something great for others to see.
I love MrHudson's music, preferably from the first 2 albums, I also like alot of what I hear on the radio, if I enjoy a song I like to look up the lyrics.
I also enjoy * GreenDay * My Chemical Romance * Ed Sheeran * Michael Bublé
I don't really read books that often but have read Terry Pratchett books and short stories about cats.
Currently reading A cat called Alfie
I do enjoy puzzle magazines and the small puzzle books though if they count lol
The Simpsons Movie, War of the Worlds, Mission Impossible, the Da Vinci Code.
Comedy, Action or Animation are my favourite genres, so this would include Shrek and the likes.
I enjoy watching quiz shows such as The Weakest Link, Million Pound Drop etc. and also watch the Simpsons regularly and programs about how things are made, I love learning new things.
NCIS and CSI were a big watch for me in 2014 and also Under the Dome (hopefully there'll be another series soon :) )
If I ever have to send a swap late (after send by date) I will let you know, I always do my best to send swaps quickly or on time and well packaged where needed.
I always make a note on my sheet when I send and receive, but if you don't receive a swap from me within a reasonable time please contact me before leaving any rating, I will always try to mark a swap sent within a week of sending (or occasionally on the last day).
I have decided to try joining some other swaps apart from postcard ones :), so these are my likes/dislikes
Socks - size 3, I love fluffy bed type socks but most socks with a design are good!
Chocolate - I like chocolate but I am on a diet at the moment so only a small amount is allowed! no Belgian or dark though please
Postage stamps - unused if possible or on the envelope you send me for my collection
Fridge Magnets and Keyrings/Keychains - brand new please from where you live
Gel Pens - any colours as long as they're new :)
Postcards - I know I swap these but would also like to receive them as a gift used or unused, any apart from those mentioned above in my dislikes
Nail files - new with nice designs please :)
Mini (ink)stamps/stampers - new with cute designs
Lapel Pin/Pin badges - charity type (where you donate to charity and get a pin) preferably :)
Yankee Candles - The best candles in the world, they smell nice whilst burning and that smell stays for a few hours after you extinguish them too
Christmas Card - I love Christmas and especially love sending cards ( and receiving) and displaying all the ones I receive
