My Mum is a Youtuber! She mainly works with paper - stamps, cards, watercolors etc. Very talented. I recommend a watch and a subscribe. https://www.youtube.com/user/vadeler
Timor-Leste (East Timor) is a tiny country in South East Asia. I had the absolute privilege of teaching English at this new and growing school. They're so blessed to have a new building with the finishing touches needed now. A real and worthy cause. https://chuffed.org/project/tais-school-auditorium#/supporters
I help run a little community online called Craft and Pray. Our goal is to create a place where community can grow as we craft alongside each other, prayerfully and mindfully making for others in kindness. Check it out and follow along if you like! https://bit.ly/2Ubvsy6
I'm trying to match my Swap-bot swaps 1:1 with mail to my family and friends.
It's my 30th birthday really soon and I'm determined to soak up all the moments in 29 and try be content to start a new decade 🥰
Hi there! Thanks for stopping by my profile.
I live in Australia. I'm a teacher. I have a fluffy ragdoll cat, a few house plants and a super cute sponsor child. I love drinking coffee and tea. I like collecting scraps of paper and turning them into happy mail - I think that's called ephemera and fussy cutting? I sew and feel so proud I can make my own clothes. I love the idea of upcycling and like doing my part for the environment. I've found my love language to be giving thoughtful gifts and have found many answers in life from realising I'm ENFP. I'm a Christian and am on a journey with Jesus. I love to sing and have quirky taste in music and many things.
When I'm teaching I love to see the brave creativity of kids. Most small kids don't care if they make mistakes and those who do, I love seeing the moment of pushing through fear. I really can learn a thing or two!
I love to make time for people, laugh and listen to their stories. I have traveled and enjoy meeting new people, trying new foods, seeing new sights from all cultures.
Australia: I love our unique animals and community spirit. Most people of this huge island country are kind-hearted and love having a joke. Meet my Dad and you'd know this fully! Also, please understand it may take a while to receive from me once sent due to postal systems. It's so expensive to send international and even locally as well so I'll take swaps slowly. And too, Covid.
My craft experience: My Mum just loves all of them and dabbled in all through my childhood. She's super talented. She definitely gave her love of this to me. I enjoy trying new things and recently swaps, pen paling and happy mail have interested me.
Well I hope I can brighten your day somehow. I'm new-ish to happy mail so bare with me!

I'm honestly not here for the receiving but I've found this section helpful on other's profiles when sending. These are just some things of note, I'd be happy and grateful with most things you would take time to send!
I like - all colours but orange is my dear favourite followed by blue, blank postcards and any happy mail that can be disassembled and passed on in love to someone else, happy for you to share most anything because I don't have a huge amount of supplies. Things that are handmade by you. Learning about your country and where you live.
I don't mind - cheeky/sassy/funny cards or postcards, 'Frozen' themed things, sci-fi
I dislike - anything satanic, mythical, witches, fairies etc., overly embellished things, Victorian/Parisian/Shabby Chic vintage style.
Need to know anything else, please ask 😊😊
