This is me ....

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

I am currently on the lookout for tickets (bus; airplane; train; movie; theatre etc. etc.) You may think its junk ... but please don't throw it away ....

I am also on the hunt for some more Vintage/Retro/current Ephemera (magazine pages ... Library Cards ... Ledger Paper .... advertisements ... etc. etc.)

My current stash is dwindling fast .... so if you think it's junk ... send it my way!!! :)) Thanks in advance .....

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. A little shy in the beginning but once I warm up you cant stop me! I am outgoing; flirtatious; witty; childish; nothing really gets me down ...


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
  • Postcards - Naked and non-touristy - if possible - please - and if a swap calls for touristy then obviously .....
  • Postage Stamps
  • Mail Art
  • Personal letters - I love hearing about your life across the world
  • Suprises!
  • Stickers - PLEASE NO CUTESY
  • Airmail Ephemera
  • Envelopes
  • 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 ....

Ratings and Postage .....

I promise you if I have marked it sent ..... It has been sent ..... It can take 6-8 weeks to travel from South Africa. Our Postal service is not the greatest!

Please PM me if you are in any doubt about your swap .... But I keep a little book in which I record all my swaps .... If I feel you haven't received something in time - I will send you a PM. I will do a re-send if need be ... I have no problem in sending re-sends!!

Rating You ...

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....


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 ..

I have not made an art journal before so am looking forward to putting together the pages I receive and some I make for myself. The quote is one I considered using also. Your envelope is wonderful - the first swap I have received from South Africa. And lastly, thanks for the postcards. You deserve 2 hearts for this swap. <3, <3, <3 !
