About Me

US mail has taken ANYTHING FROM 4-6 weeks to reach me. Some mail has been extremely fast moving lately but sadly not all.

I will NOT be hasty to rate and would hope my partners feel the same as it is all out of our hands once the mail is handed over.

I joined swapbot in January 2007 πŸ’“

Please when sending me a swap use my first and last name, not my swap-bot user name. I live in a very small town where the PO is part of the general store and mail is filed alphabetically. There is no home delivery so I collect it from the store. We don't have mail in or out over the weekends and anything I mail after 10.00 am on Friday will not be checked through until Monday.

Ò˜» πŸ’• Swap unto others as you'd have them swap unto you

πŸ’“ πŸ’“ πŸ’“

I am nani_ani on flickr
I am whisperingnan on AFA .


I believe ratings are important so I try to rate as soon as I receive and while we all have good intentions I sometimes slip up. If you think it has taken too long I don't mind if you jog my memory with a gentle reminder pm.

If your item is SENT late I am happy to wait as long as there is contact between us before the send date and I allow lots of travel time. I will not wait to rate a 1 if you are already receiving 1's or you don't answer any messages. It's about communication!

POSTING MAIL TO AUSTRALIA Australian Customs Information

NOTE About POSTCARDS : I enjoy unique or unusual postcards and any that make me smile. My favorites are art/illustration postcards. Those printed by artists from your local area would be wonderful as would handmade postcards that you make but please NO cards made with just stickers or washi tape. I like bright and cheerful colours but that is not a requirement. ❀❀❀

( While I love them going through the post naked I won't rate down if the swap says send naked and you put it in an envelope )
Any size is fine too. The bigger , the better !


...spending time with my family

...I am a Christian with a sometimes devilish sense of humour . ...living in a small country town

..bush camping ... no power, log fire, sitting under the stars..... ...watching sunsets, walking along the beach ...desert landscapes.

.... filling my junk journals so any thing listed would be great to receive :

.... creating mail art, altered books , handmade journals, chunky books, skinnys, ATC's, postcards and fodder.

... working with watercolours, acrylics, pencils, pens, crayons, glue, paperscraps, fabric, and sometimes all of them together.

... whimsical style art. I have a growing ATC collection of whimsical houses, trees and cats.

... Collecting picture backed playing cards not patterned.

... Decos: If you are sending a swap to me and want to include one or two or more to keep them moving that will be fine.

.. .I make zines

Please don't put my username and swapbot information on the outside of envelopes and packages.
I would prefer NOT to receive.....

Lot's of bling! (glitter, lace, rhinestones etc)

Pink or baby blue

Not into vintage or very glitzy, sparkly. Love anything domestic cat themed or leopard....any thing already listed would be great to receive. I love thoughtful quotes and often fill small journals with illustrated quotes. Hand made fodder, your original artwork, something unusual... I appreciate the effort put into making things.
