Hi! I'm a mum of two primary aged kids, recently moved from the UK to Australia. My husband travels a lot for his job, and we love to receive postcards/mail from around the world, collecting stamps and coins from as many different places as possible :)
I'm a bit of a craft/book/chocolate lover, dabbling in lots of different areas. My favourite crafts at the moment are based around painting/journaling, although I've tried my hand at most things, from quilting and embroidery to mosaics and painted stones.
I have a wide variety of interests, some of my favourite postcard subjects are: illustrated quotes (also handdrawn) woodcut pictures pictures from fairytales Art - Alphonse Mucha, Hiroshige, Rackham, Tiffany glass Egyptian or Asian inspired traditional clothes/crafts/foods historical buildings colourful/rainbow collections eg spices, flowers, famous landmarks sunrise/sunset/stars/city lights pen/ink and watercolour sketches vintage travel chalkboard art Erte/ Art Deco design beach/ocean Mediterranean landscapes.
I've done some postcrossing and happy mail swaps elsewhere before finding swap bot, so I'm looking forward to joining in here! The post from Australia can take a while, so please be aware it may take a bit longer to reach you than from most other places!
