About Me

Yay Vegan! Being vegan is the best and most important thing about me! I love being vegan!

I'm a reader: science fiction, animal fiction, mainstream, and random non-fiction.

I keep a paper journal. And a blog, occasionally.

I'm a photographer and I print my photos up as postcards.

I enjoy art in many forms. Mail Art is awesome... And I especially love handmade cards and postcards!

Favorite Crafts

Photography My focus is urban wildlife. I go for walks every weekend and take pictures of nature; I love trees, birds, flowers and any kinds of animals that I find, including bugs and pets. Photography is definitely my passion, and I love sharing my photos with the world as postcards...

Postcards I've been involved in a (5 card) monthly postcard exchange since July 2008... and now I send out 100 to 150 postcards every month! I use desktop publishing software to turn my photos into postcards, which I print at home on a (very temperamental) high-end printer.

Gardening I'm a terrible gardener, but I still end up with more cherry tomatoes than I can eat! I'm mostly there for the photo opportunities. ;)

∞ Rarely: Drawing, Crochet, Book Making, Making Bookmarks

Fav TV and Movies

I don't watch much tv, but there are a few shows I like... Doctor Who (I love the new, but it all started with the old!), and I'll watch Firefly over and over!

Movies: Legend (the one with Unicorns!), LadyHawke, The NeverEnding Story, Ever After, The Secret Life of Pets, Serenity


Postcards I'd love to receive nature, animals or art postcards. But I'm not picky! I just like to get mail: send me anything, and then write something interesting in the text block! :) Also love handmade postcards!

∞ Other than Nature and Animals, I am also very interested in Ocean themes and Astronomy, Star Gazing, and Outer Space themes.

Animals I truly love all animals, even bugs, but here are a few of my most favorite! Chickens & Turkeys, Crows, Dolphins, Elephants, Equines, Foxes, Frogs, Guinea Pigs, Humpback Whales, Mice & Rats, Octopuses, Sea Horses, Squirrels!

Favorite Books

Oh my gosh, I love to read! I also love to buy books! I tend to buy more than I have time to read. There is also a big place in my heart for ebooks, I love my Kindle!

I enjoy reading science fiction, but lately I'm reading a lot of non-fiction. I love to read about nature and animals. And also an autobiography here and there.

Someday, I'd Like to TRY...

crochet amigurumi

stamp carving

drawing and colouring my own postcards

I ♥ Swap-Bot

Getting all kinds of mail certainly brightens my day, but I love to create and send mail! I enjoy sharing my photography on the postcards and notecards I make. I like to read profiles and figure out what I have that will make my mailing partner happy. I enjoy challenging myself occasionally with different kinds of swaps.

Yay, Mailbox Joy!

Comment: Oh dear. Being as a make a point of adding all books I receive through this swap onto my reading list, I guess I'll have to plough through it too. Still, can't be as bad as Proust!

Comment: Wonderful photograph! We don't have cucumber beetles here. They're pretty, even if they are considered a pest. Is the flower it's perched on a type of Allium? I've always been drawn to plants with pom pom or spikey flower heads. Happy gardening! <3<3

Comment: What a beautiful notecard! I love both bees and basil, but like you said, I have never had luck with the purple variety either. That notecard is definitely going into my journal. I hope you have good luck avoiding the bug that is circulating around in your workplace! Thank you so much for the interesting swap.
Comment: Oregon neighbor 👋🏽 Thanks for the greeting. Never been to Niagra Falls but it would be a great experience!

Hey, Thanks for the lovely garden postcard! We are so excited about your garden postcard swaps too - they are so much fun! We love community gardens. We use to live really close to allotments and it was so nice to walk past and see what was happening! ❤️

Thank you for the very pretty bonus Garden postcard.

PeliKat on Nov 9, 2017:

I received your postcard and your comments about your plot in the community garden reminded me of my uncle in Germany who also had a plot in a community garden area. He would go on weekends to work in the garden, and it would turn into a party. They would cook bratwurst on the grill and people from neighboring plots would come over; they would have music playing and everyone would be happy working in their gardens. Thanks so much for sparking such a pleasant memory for me!!!
