About Me

Hi, just a little note, the mail leaving New Zealand is travelling faster then the mail coming in. Please don't stress if I don't rate you in 2 weeks. I will do it as soon as you postcard arrives in my hot little hands. Promise.

I love to craft, at the moment my favourite is the Miniature dollhouse kits. I have done about 17 now and I am at the stage where I change them up, either adding or taking out what I don't feel fits. I have had to sell most of them, purely because I am running out of space and because then I can buy more. I have a large clear tube and a desk full of miniature bits and pieces. On the weekends I take over most of the kitchen as I can spread out more. Hubby allows me to, but by Sunday night I have to pack it away lol. One of my projects I have started is a Gothic Halloween house. I might have left it too late, but then I guess I have a whole year to "work" on it some more.

We have no children, unless you count the cats. We have a male cat called Kwali who has just turned 14 and a little black female cat I have named Poppy, who is 4.

I don't smoke or drink alcohol (just don't have a taste for either). I try to eat healthy, eg: gluten free, sugar free, preservative free. But when the body needs chocolate who can say no.

I also love science fiction and fantasy books and movies. And I enjoy getting into good Victorian era murder mysteries. As well as Agatha Christie and that era. good old fashioned stuff.

Spring is my favourite time of the year, just between the cold of winter and the heat of summer, where all the pretty flowers start to bloom and baby animals are being born.

I love tea, black being my favourite, Especially Earl Grey. I dont drink Camomile, for some reason it gives me stomach cramps when I drink it. I LOVE cinnamon!

My favourite movies / tv are: Equilibrium, Avatar, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Appleseed, Witchblade (the anime version), Ghost in the Shell, The Hobbit, Kungfu Panda, Pirates of the Caribbean series, Star Wars, Star Trek, The Matrix Trilogy, all the Riddick's, Miss Fishers Murder Mysteries, Midsommer Murders, Ancient Aliens, Downton Abbey, Poirot, Miss Marple, Vera..... just to name a few.

Im a bit of a Harry Potter fan, I have all the books and one day hope to have extended versions of the movies on DVD and to also go visit Harry Potter world (either UK or US I don't mind).

My favourite colours are: Blues and greens, and black.

I would love to do private PC swaps and am always looking for postcard pals.

I like to host swaps, should you not receive your swap from your partner even after you may have managed to get hold of them for a resend, I will happily Angel just let me know.

Favourite Stuff

I am a HUGE Star Wars fan.

I love good old fashioned murder mysteries and period dramas.

Bumblebees and bees and ladybugs. Im always rescuing bumblebees and bees in the garden with sugar water.



Deftones is my most favourite favourite band.

I love kung fu movies, I have seen so many that I love that it would take forever to list them.



I dont like receiving PCs that are a cut out from a cereal box or some other random thing. I only send out store bought PCs so I kind of expect to receive store bought or very nicely hand made/art PCs. I will give a 3 if I get a PC cut out from some random box you got out of your kitchen cupboard.

I do not mind handmade, but only if the swap allows them.

I am not religeous, so please don't sent me religeous or spiritual stuff.

PCs Im looking for

I prefer my postcards sent stamped and naked, or naked and stamped (that is sent not in an envelope). I have this thing that a postcard is not complete unless it has been written on.

I have decided to collect a postcard of each an every animal in the world. A momentous task you say! Yes it is! Challenge accepted :)

I am looking for the following (I will update this list regularly), I have a folder with all my animail postcards in the "My collections" link at the top of the page here, just in case you want to double check what I have, or just out of curiosity. I will update it regularly.

Here is what I am looking for:

Bats, yes the flying kind.



Andean Cat

Siberian tiger

Bat-eared Fox

Indian or Benghal Fox

March Hare


Rock hyrax

Tiger or Bull Shark (depending on where you are in the world)

Any dolphin except common dolphin.

Comic book covers


City View PCs with the name on the front.

Country postcards

Map postcards

Princess Diana

Kate Middleton

Space or science fiction


Ancient Egyptians

Erupting volcanoes

Dramatic weather scenes

Harry Potter

Lord of the Rings

Star Trek

Star Wars

Halloween (we don't get any Halloween stuff here in NZ)

Goth or Gothic scenes



Dracula / Vampires (but the scary ones- please NOT Edward, or True Blood, I like the old school vampires)

Vintage comics / movies like Bride of Frankenstein and Vampirella

Crop Circles

Froy & Dind (I received one in a tag and I absolutely love it!)

Vickyen rated for FISH Postcard on Sep 17, 2021
Comment: Hi Cindy! Good to get another visit from you! I have never been into fishing - the thought of touching a worm - yucky! I am not a girly girl but have always hated the thought of touching worms for some reason! LOL! Plus I don't eat fish for the most part, so.. I did enjoy reading your pc and the thought of cutting them up, nope, not for me either! LOL! All the best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Thank you for the nice card with the matching postage stamp! We are having a nice start to Fall! I did get out and travel locally. It has been nice having a good summer.
Comment: Thank you for the Eiffel Tower pc. That's a perfect one for the letter 'E'. Spring and Summer are my favorite seasons. We've had a lovely summer. I love waking up to sunshine every day, but I'm sure Autumn will be here soon and I'll wake to grey, cloudy days. Thank you for brightening my day from far away!
Ikat78 rated for AERIAL VIEW Postcard on Sep 8, 2021
Comment: Hi Cindy! THANK YOU for the awesome pc of where your are from. I canโ€™t wait to show my boyfriend a future bucket list place. ๐Ÿ˜ Looks beautiful. Hope you warm up soon.
Comment: I received your great Christchurch Cathedral postcard today, and I wanted to thank you so much for it, dear Cindy <3 This postcard it perfect for the swap - it has so many C's in it;-) And I love the stamps you chose, too. And I'm over the moon to get a postcard from New Zealand :-)
Vickyen rated for DOG Postcard on Aug 26, 2021
Comment: Hi Cindy! What a cute pc! In the past the dogs we had, hated traveling - we started Ms. Greta on it early on and not just to the vet - she loves it! I have a friend who takes her cat for car rides and the kitty knows they are doing fun stuff, so does not seem to mind - maybe it is all in what they get used to? Or maybe some just don't like traveling! All the Best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Love the beautiful dolphin!!! Got here fast too, yay! Thank you for hosting. Hope itโ€™ll be Spring soon! xoxo
