About Me

WOO HOO on Tuesday 19th May I started to receive mail from the USA.

Because of covid-19 it's taking about 4 weeks to get snail mail to the US from New Zealand .

I'm a Christian.

Hi as I live in New Zealand NO plant material or food except coffee or herbal tea as they are processed so seem to be OK can be sent but send any thing else and it will be stopped at Border Control then burnt.

I'm a slightly older woman who is sadly a widow . I live with my black & white cat called Polly as she is polydactyl in other words she has thumbs.

I enjoy all music but my favourite is jazz.

I'm a Christmas gal. I go mad with Christmas decorations in all the main areas inside my home & one of the bedrooms. I LOVE Christmas & all it stands for.

I enjoy reading poetry have done so all my life all lengths & genre and writing Haiku. I have tried writing poetry but it is sooo bad.

I work with preschool children & love it.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Favorite Crafts

I knit, crochet, spin also a little tatting.

I also scrapbook.

I love making postcards and mini books/zines mini pocket books from paper bags.

POSTCARDS - I like post cards to be sent as a post card so no envelope please unless it is a requirement of the swap. I'm happy in fact I LOVE it if it's handmade. On postcards - lighthouse, the sea, birds, lighthouse, flowers, your home town, lighthouse, mermaids, butterfly, a photo you have taken. My care children love looking at photos of cats. Did I mention lighthouses or mermen& mermaids ?

Also a good copy of a vintage photo or vintage postcard.

But no adds please.

PHOTOS - Take loads of photos on my different cameras. I only use my camera on my phone for stuff I don't want to keep long term or I'm sending to family or friends or for work as with snap chat or such like.

Favorite Colours

Blue, purple, pinks on there own or as a marble swirl of 2 or 3 of them.

Blue-green marble wave type swirls colours of the sea.

Christmas colours red, green & gold.

Response: Sorry I didn't think to add the dates but if you bring up the photo properties you should be able to see the date. Thank you for your comments.

Hi AFK. This is for Poetry Zine Swap - Send by Email. I messed up. I forgot to change "3" to "6" partners before assigning people. I changed it to "6" after assigning. So we can only rate 3 people. If I could, I would rate you a 5 heart. Your haiku zine is a joy. Calming. Haikus are my favourite style of poetry. Your own photos are a nice touch. Your Easter portrait is a hoot. :) Thank you for creating your lovely zine and sharing it.
