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)
  • ribbons of any kind
  • anything red (my favourite colour). Generally any colour is cool although I'm not a huge fan of gold or neon colours as standalone colours
  • Stamps (postage - used and unused from everywhere)
  • Stamps (craft stamps or stamped images)
  • Die cuts/Dies (craft dies)
  • Coloured cardstocks (I am always looking for different coloured cardstock for cards
  • Anything Lawn Fawn ( stamped images, die cut images etc)

  • 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).

For American Senders

When I was on holiday in 2003 I started collecting the quarters with states on but I have only been to NYC since then and so haven't had much chance to complete the collection so if you are sending to me and you have some quarters, please see if you have the USA States listed below as these are ones I don't have (and I will be eternally grateful) :)

New Mexico
