My name is Raynor, and I live in Australia, in a little house with my cat named Squish.
I enjoy crocheting, knitting, sewing, drawing, and reading. I love writing to my friends and collecting stamps, and I find it very hard to resist buying stationery. I would say that notebooks, letter sets, and fountain pens are a particular weakness, but I also love stickers and papers. Scented pencils are also a guilty pleasure.
I’m interested in history, languages, traditional crafts, illustration, and anything old (but not necessarily fancy antiques; I love the day-to-day ephemera that often gets overlooked).
I love Wizard of Oz, Mickey Mouse, the X-Men, going to the library, and cute animals, particularly cats, otters, puffins, and red pandas.
My favorite movie of all time is Return to Oz, and my favorite book is Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, but a recent new favorite is The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller.
I mark things as sent as soon as I've completed the item, and I will either post that day or the next.
Australia's postal service seems to be quite unpredictable at the best of times (I've posted cards to the same city on the same day in the same postbox, and they arrived weeks apart, another time a domestic letter took the same time as a postcard to Germany 🤷), plus it's very far away from most places, plus Covid.
I do apologize for long wait times in international swaps. I wish there were more I could do to expedite things, but unfortunately it's out of my control. Please feel free to message me if you have any concerns.

Return to Oz is the greatest movie of all time, in my humble opinion. I have an MP3 of the whole movie, but slowed down quite a bit that I listen to while I’m working to chill me out. I love Disney movies in general (but not really Pixar), especially the oldies like Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Peter Pan etc, and the old live actions ones like Honey I Shrunk The Kids, Swiss Family Robinson, Moonspinners and the like. I used to be a huge movie fanatic, but I haven’t really watched movies very often lately, and so I can’t think of any at the moment. I might have more luck listing books or TV shows.

Crochet, knitting, sewing (general, English paper piecing, doll clothes), woodwork, drawing. I just generally like making things.
