My Postcrossing persona

About Me

I used to be an IT worker but now work for my local council making maps and I study part time. I am based in Griffith NSW. But why let work define me, eh? I'm Malleechick on Postcrossing as well. I like to be creative. I enjoy working out how to do things and like to learn new things. I've been drawing and painting for a few years now and enjoy it. I like the idea of making cards and postcards with my art so that there is an audience for it. With the help of Dr Google and YouTube, I have recently learned about quilt blocks and am really enjoying making things again. I love camping and getting away from 'civilisation' and I love going to the big cities and losing myself in the crowds.

Favorite Music

Hmm, that's a difficult question to answer. I like music that speaks to me. So I guess the first criteria is that I have to be able to understand the lyrics. (Makes me sound like an oldie, but I'm not really - I just appreciate both sound and voice.) I did a 2 hour show on community radio some years ago. It was called Fish Without Bicycles. It focused on women's voices and especially women who were not in the mainstream. I love blues and folk as well

Favorite Movies

In no particular order: Bad Boy Bubby * The Piano * Birthday Girl * Dead Man * Mystery Train * Romeo and Juliet (the recent version with Claire Daines)

Favorite Crafts

I've been teaching myself to draw and paint for a few years and have finally joined a drawing class this year. I love it. My themes are usually to do with places that I have visited - and I do a lot of travelling in Australia. I have always been into sewing, I used to make all my own clothes and I started experimenting with machine embroidery but didn't develop that. I love the fashions of the 1950s and 1960s. Not the nostalgic rememberings of 60s fashion a la Austin Powers. But the earlier 60s stuff with class and style. I am really enjoying making cards and postcards.

I'm not a 'pink' girl. I'm not into cute stuff. I like bright, bold colours.

Likes ...

I like making cards and journals. I am just finding my feet with paper craft, so anything that will add to my collection of ideas will be welcome. You can send me pages from old books, old postcards, illustrations of fashion from the 1920s-1960s, cards that you have made (whatever size), or ideas for paper craft. I also like ephemera that I could use in my new found crafting. Tickets to shows or movies, airmail stickers, international mail customs declarations, art deco stuff. How much longer do I have here?

Don't Like ...

I don't like cutesy, girly, pink things, or cats or animals (although I might change my mind about frogs ...) I dont want to be sent tea or coffee or drink mixes or lollies (candy / sweets) or things with strong scents.

Comment: Hah! I think you did a great job on this one. You picked something that sounded somewhat believable, like, it wasn't immediately obvious that it was a quote from a book. It cracked me up to get this in the mail! And the handmade postcard is too cool!

Comment: Thank you. I opened them all at once, I could not wait. The same thing happened last time also.
Response: Could you wait the seven days? Or did you open them all at once? I haven't had to face that decision yet because my envelope has not arrived.

Comment: I loved the stories behind the bits and pieces and especially loved the wooden buttons your dad made! They will make my cardigan. We just drove through Gippsland in January so we can't wait to watch your vid too. Thank you!

Comment: What a cool list - an amazing undertaking! I enjoyed the comments you added and the flying pig sticker. You surely deserved that glass of wine!!! (Hope June is doing is better.)
Response: I'm pleased that you have enjoyed my 'work'. It was fun putting it together. June has her good days and her bad ones. There are more good than bad at the moment, so that's welcome news.
