This is me ....

29 April 2018 All re-sends have been sent ... hoping they all get to you !!!! I can't wait to start swapping again - but I need to know that all is in order first .... I am a solid and honest swapper ... I have done all that I can at this time .......

Some items are getting through very quickly - and others are really really taking their time.

12 April 2018 I have been having some challenges with regards to my mail arriving to you ... I have been to enquire at my P/office which I always use - they tell me that mail out of South Africa is really really slow at the moment (but I am thinking that maybe they have been taking my mail) I am trying a different post office for re-sends to see if it makes a difference .... I see my Postcrossing cards are only getting registered after travelling 60+ days. Please be patient - I am giving all my swaps 8 weeks to arrive. I am doing re-sends too and will contact my partner (for those that haven't been contacted already) Therefore I am also not participating in any further swaps until I sort out this mess and apologies up front ... I am not a flaker or a non-sender and most of you can attest to this ...... I really don't know what else to do ... and I am feeling quite desperate at the moment.

Hello everyone; my name is Dee and I am from Johannesburg; South Africa

A Little About Me ....

I have a wonderful sense of humour; which is a little on the dark side :)) I am extremely easy going and open minded.


I am a spiritual person rather than a religious person. (I like Angels and Buddhas and Tarot Cards). I believe that there is good in everyone. I don't like conflict. But don't get on my bad side! That being said I forgive and forget very easily .......

I have "Wish It; Dream It; Do It" tattooed on my foot - that's my life's motto.

Things I love ....

In No particular order .....

  • The Beach


  • Ephemera

  • Tickets; ledger paper; unusual ephemera ....

  • Postcards - Naked and non-touristy - if possible please - and if a swap calls for touristy then obviously .....

  • Mail Art

  • Personal letters - I love hearing about your life across the world

  • Suprises!

  • Anything to do with Airmail (stickers; postcards; writing paper etc.)

  • Interesting Envelopes - Handmade or store bought

  • Die Cuts and Paper Flowers

  • Botanical Theme goodies - stamps; postcards; notepaper; notecards etc.

  • Teeny Tiny paper flowers for ATC's

  • Notecards - stationery - blank postcards (non-touristy please)

  • ATC's

  • Doodles

  • Crocheting

  • Cats and Dogs

  • Tattoos

  • My Children (xxx)

  • Wine

  • Reading

  • SENDING surprises :))

  • Photography... Love to take photos and look at photography. Always experimenting with my camera.

  • Whatever you would like to send ... I know I will love it! image

Dislikes .....

It has to be said ... sorry .... but I really don't like anything cutesy or touristy and I have got MORE than enough paper .... BUT .... Diddl is so cool !!!! We don't get the range here in South Africa ...

Postage .....

I mark sent on the day I put it in the postbox so the postal mark may be a day later.

(I have noticed that Snail Mail is taking longer and longer. I used to give it 6 weeks but It can take up to 8 weeks to arrive. I will send you a message if I think my swap is taking too long to reach you and probably do a re-send. I really don't mind doing re-sends.)


If I havent rated you - it means I havent received your swap. I ALWAYS rate! Normally on the day I receive it. Please contact me if you are in doubt....

Please also be courteous and rate me accordingly. I put alot of time and effort in to my swaps and it is really dissapointing when I don't receive your rating.


I have had complaints about envelopes arriving "mangled"- and "I should have taped it more" ... or "Why did you tape your envelope?" so either way I cant win ... so I tape ALL my envelopes. I have tried modge podge; gel medium; strong glue etc. etc. but the goodies just fall off on their travels .... or it gets torn etc. etc.

Saying that - I also dont mind if you tape your envelope or put it in a clear plastic sleeve ... it does not matter to me either way ..

Thank you for the wonderful March Make a wish posted April 8 which arrived in California today, April 18 - so not the 8 weeks you said mail had been taking - maybe delivery is speeding up! I loved discovering your creative and beautiful envelope in my mailbox. Thank you for sending goodies that perfectly match my interests: the vintage ads, kid pages, Disney and hedgehog items are great! My absolute favorite is the sheet of vintage Coke stickers -- wow! Thank you for you thoughtfulness.
