This is me ....



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.

image

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
  • VINTAGE; VINTAGE; VINTAGE
  • 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!
  • Airmail Ephemera
  • Interesting Envelopes - Handmade or store bought
  • Die Cuts and Paper Flowers
  • 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.
  • Oh .... Did I mention anything and all Vintage .....

  • 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.

Ratings

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.

ENVELOPES

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 ..
