About Me

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

I read books: science fiction, animal fiction, mainstream, and random non-fiction.

I keep a paper journal. And a blog. I make postcards. I take pictures with a digital camera. I enjoy art in many forms.

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 pictures with the world as postcards...

∞ Postcards I've been involved in a (5 card) monthly postcard exchange since July 2008. I use desktop publishing software to turn my photos into postcards, which I print at home on a high-end printer.

∞ Drawing I can draw, I mostly don't. I like to draw animals, the occasional zentangle-type design, and coloured abstract pictures. If I colour my sketches, it's usually with coloured pencils and art stix. I also collect Copic markers.

∞ Crochet I have been known to make a few Snuggle Blankets and scarves, but not currently.

∞ Book Making Not currently, but I've made loads of blank books, hand sewn bindings. More recently, I love my Bind-It-All, and I use it regularly to make journals and log books.

∞ Bookmarks Not currently, I have made stencil bookmarks. I really enjoyed the process and picking the colours and the finished bookmark. I can also whip up a photo bookmark, if the need arises!

Favorite Television

I don't watch much, 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!

Favorites

∞ 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!

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.

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 am on Swap-Bot to create and send mail! I love to share 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.

Swap-Bot is great because I love to spread Mailbox Joy!

Comment: Hello Rift! Thank you so much for your lovely note. I really enjoyed reading about your community garden. I hope you get lots of wonderful vegetables to eat! Also, the picture of the Mallard duck is beautiful. I love it and plan to put all that you sent into my scrapbook! :)

Comment: Thank you for the wonderful note card, although I am sorry to hear about the heat, that could not have been very pleasant. We get over 90 degree days and then every air conditioner from my bus to my office is set so low you freeze to death inside and boil outside - makes not sense at all. The ducklings are adorable! What a great picture, and what a pleasure to watch them grow, Thanks for sharing them with me,

Comment: Thank you for the AWESOME postcard as well as the great message. I agree with you - I also wish the USPS had continued that nature series. I will definitely have to read Darwin's Ghosts - thank you for the recommendation. :) Happy Swapping!

Hello and thank you for the raccoon postcard. He looks so naughty! "I'd join this swap if..." was one of the most hilarious and fun swaps I took part in all my swap-bot experience :D

Thank you for choosing to send the extra postcard to me <3

Dear Rift, Thank you very much for your photograph of the scrub jay and for your kindness in sending it to me. Jays are amazing! In my city, we get one type only: garrulus glandarius, the Eurasian jay. Garrulus is right, because they love to chatter. They are also clever, cheeky and have a gorgeous plumage. I have one that buries acorns in my window-box. Every spring, I have to pull out little oak trees!

Your Welcome and thank you for the beautiful bird postcard. I love the matte paper.

Thank you for the beautful raccoon photo-postcard, it sounds like a great experience to watch them in the wild like that :)

Thank you so much for the wonderful postcard from the postcard roulette swap! I have never seen a Love-in-a-Mist flower before and would love a seed pod if there are any left, it would look amazing in my sea of yellow lilies.
