About Me

About me

My name is Rebecca and I am a 27 year old geek living in the UK.

I love reading, writing, country music, animals, photography, video games, tv, and movies.

My favourite books are 'a Time to Kill' and 'Then there were none' but I love Stephen King, Harry Potter, His Dark Materials, Sylvia Plath, The Help, horror and many many more. My favourite movie is Star Wars Empire Strikes Back but I love all kinds of movies and tv shows from horror to drama. I love Lord of the Rings, X Files, Scream, Bates Motel, Hannibal Harry Potter, CSI, Modern Family, American Dad, Man in the High Castle, South Park and many more.

I love stargazing and anything to do with planets/stars.

I am a huge video game buff - if you wanna add me my Xbox GT is Bexinthecity247

I love animals and have two rabbits called Bruce and GiGi but my favourite animals are cats and mice.

I LOVE travelling and have just returned from a Switzerland trip, and a European road trip (Holland, Germany, Poland,Czech Republic, Luxembourg and Austria).

I am planning a July 2018 Safari to South Africa so would love some penpals from there. :)

I have a huge interest in sailing and boating.

I am a massive country music fan - so if you're into country too then "we should be friends"! XD My favourite artists are Tim McGraw, Miranda Lambert and Little Big Town. This year I have been to Country2Country (a festival where around 9 acts played), and Nashville in Concert (with actors from the show), Miranda Lambert, , Lady Antebellum and Little Big Town and Brandy Clark

Please bear in mind that I try to prepare swaps before the assigned date so I usually mark as sent very early on after assignment. I make my own cards and stuff all the time so I usually have lots already to go with just adding a personal touch to them for my partner. So I may be new but I'm not a flaker

I use my company's franking machine to send out mail and often I try to frank mail and get it out the same day - but sometimes I'll mark my swap as sent and I won't have a chance to frank the letter until the next day - this mostly happens around Saturday/Sunday where letters will be franked on Monday. If you feel you will mark a 1 or a 3 because of this then please contact me beforehand so I know to wait to ship the letter/packet until after it has been franked, THANKS!


My creative talents:

I love cross stitching and prefer the smaller little mini projects over the larger more detailed ones as I have less time (and patience for those)

I also make my own cards (only just really been doing this for about 9 months or so but I think some I've made have been pretty good. I've recently started working with distress inks and making galaxy pictures).

My favourite brand of stamps and dies are Lawn Fawn.



I love collecting postcards, I was mainly collecting through Postcrossing but I also collect on average 5 for every place I go.



  • Animals - (cats, mice, rabbits, and wildlife such as Wolves, Foxes etc)
  • Harry Potter (Slytherin particularly. Fave characters are Lucius/Narcissa Malfoy, Dobby)

  • Lawn Fawn
  • Stamps (both postage and card making ones)
  • cross stitch
  • travelling/countries (love anything to do with vintage travel)

  • Manga
  • Game of Thrones (Can't stand it!)
  • please don't send anything Christmassy (besides Christmassy/wintery animals like deers/stags but not dressed up for Christmas, robins etc) - because I don't do any creative things for Christmas and would rather not receive them. (Same goes for Halloween, st Patrick's day, Easter etc)
  • Anything to do with children/cherubs including stickers for kids (like well done, good job stickers etc).
  • minions/despicable me


Things I'd like to receive

  • Anything with animals on (cats, dogs, mice, and wildlife such as birds, foxes, etc are my favourites. I love wolves and wild cats)

  • Anything French (Paris in particular)
  • Anything Swiss
  • Stickers! (Mostly animal related or related to one of the above such as moon, stars etc)
  • Tea (I'm British so i love tea and will try any kind- except green tea!)

  • Handmade Drawings
  • Anything black and white (as in photos that are black/white not the two colours as standalone)
  • Anything country music related (old and new country)
  • Cross stitch related things - threads, patterns etc
  • Anything to do with boats, sailing or the ocean (except Mermaids etc - I like the Lawn Fawn mermaids but not really into mermaids as such).
