About Me

I am 28 years old, from Malta. I have been married for 6 1/2 years, and we have adopted a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Scamp, a tri-color cat called Tipsy and a Barn-Owl called Stryx (a.k.a. Rix). I am a qualified Beauty Therapist.

My focus at this point in my life is to explore, experience and learn. I want to be awed, and astonished; experience all the marvelous wonders of life through all my senses.

My philosophy is 'it matters not where you're going, nor when you're going to get there; all that matters is the journey.' And I am grateful for people who witness my journey, and for people who are willing to let me witness theirs.

I like listening to music, especially rock ballads.

I love animals - dogs and cats, dolphins, horses, tigers and lions, giraffes ... all of the animal kingdom - but horrified of snakes.

I love flowers, my favorite being Lilies.
I like anything Gorjuss, too :) I like things colorful, bright and cheerful though my favorite are pink & purple. I am also fascinated by images of angels, fairies, dragons, gnomes, unicorns and depictions found on oracle cards. I am a collector - I collect semi-precious stones and crystals, I collect shells, feathers, stamps, coins, photographs, stickers, Greek mythology statues and blank Journals/diaries - which I write in regularly. I enjoy travelling to places rich in cultural heritage, with ancient landmarks and monuments, but also to places with natural, wild beauty where I can take landscape photographs.

Favorite Books

My favorite book is 'A walk to remember'(also my fav. movie) by Nicholas Sparks. I like reading fairy-tales, myths and legends, but my favorite genre is fantasy romance with a streak of humor - like the 'Undead' series by MaryJanice Davidson

Books that I've enjoyed: Memoirs of a Geisha Jezebel - Eleanor De Jong Goddess of Spring - P.C. Cast The Hunger Games Persephone - Kaitlin Bevis 'The Godfather - Mario Puzo

amongst many others

Favorite Crafts

I do a lot of crafts; from crochet to sewing, to all sorts of paper crafts. Currently focused on Scrap-booking and cards making. I'm the kind of person who sees/thinks of something and will try to make it with my own hands - sometimes not quite successfully but on the whole I'm pretty happy with the results :)

Postcard wishlist

        • At this current moment I have a project to journal on postcards, so blank postcards in an envelope will be appreciated - - - - Touristy postcards of specific places, these I would prefer written.

The list is (virtually) infinite :) I like almost everything - in fact it would be easier to mention what I do not like (snakes, gory, nude people at the beach or wearing tiny swim wear, under/over exposed pictures,)

Anyway I am sure whatever I receive I will like :)

My wish list:

Gorjuss and Santoro postcards - even Handmade Sailor Moon postcards - even Handmade

Vintage

French flowers ... all flowers

Cute Animals - NO Snakes pls

Disney characters

Halloween / Thanksgiving / Christmas / Valentine / Easter

Art Nouveau

Harry Potter

Ships/Boats/Trains/Bicycles/Hot air balloons

Fairies / Mermaids / Elves / Gnomes / Angels / Dragons - fantasy art.

Books/literature related

Pagan themed

Hades and Persephone and Demeter related

Greek Mythology related, especially Gods and Goddesses

Pomegranate / Wheat / Grapes/ Wine / Seasons pictures

Any thing fairy-tale / myth and legend (romantic/love) related.

I would love to receive these kind of postcards and similar ones but I will also like any view postcards of countries, gardens, ocean, lakes, mountains etccc...

What to write??

At this current moment I have a project to journal on postcards, so blank postcards in an envelope will be appreciated - you can send me the necessary writing swap requirements on another piece of paper - I have these filed and collected too :)

And yet ...

I will still be happy with anything you'd share with me. I hope I do not only get to read 'Hi this is oxo from xyz, Have a nice day' kind of Postcards/writings. Even just a few words about the country or town would make me smile.

Here are some inspirational points:

Your name - tell me it's origin, meaning, how it was chosen for you (if you know).

Book quote - source and why you like it

Favorite poem verse(s)

A memory - childhood, holiday, vacation. family tradition.

Favorite song verse(s)

Legend/Myth/Superstition

Did you know ...

a Pencil/pen drawing

Favorite wine - and why you like it.

Favorite drink/food - and why you like them

A recipe

Choose an animal/flower you find beautiful and tell me why you think it's beautiful.

Choose a sense ( taste, smell ..) and tell me how you feel about it.

How are you feeling today?

Do you do what makes you happy?

Have you made yourself proud lately?

A joke that never ceases to make you and other people laugh.

An act of kindness - received or given

What I like receiving :)

All things Gorjuss, Sailor Moon and Kawaii - Any thing!

Anything Paris related Anything Greek Mythology related Anything in Pinks and Purples.

Palm size models of ancient sacred sites. old letters and loose journal entries Journals & notebooks wax seals and wax stationery, labels, letter writing sets, hand-made envelopes, Stickers & washi tape, rubber stamps

Things I can use for scrapbooking like papers, tags, die cuts etc... woody or musky incense (sticks or loose) - especially those with sandalwood and frankincense. Pure essential oils Anything Hades & Persephone & Demeter. Narcissus and Lilies. - fresh, dry, pressed, picture cut-out, stamps ....

Romantic/Love poems & quotes.& books

Dainty earrings and pendents Beaded (hand-made) jewlery Hair products and accessories (samples for dry hair)

ribbons Journal art pages - signed (on paper not cardstock so that I can stick them in my journals)

ATC

Woody and musky perfumes/scents ( + lavender) Miniature or interestingly shaped perfume bottles candles and wax tarts

Least favorite things:

Badly or carelessly made things. Broken or damaged things that I can't fix or up-cycle into something else.

Tea especially the green variety - even if a swap requires it I won't rate down if I don't receive any. If I receive tea and none of my friends want it I will probably use it as fertilizer for plants or to dye paper for my crafts.

Nothing with Snakes on it.

Boyish manga and anime (the girly ones I love)

Images of horror, violence and abuse against other beings and against nature. If it's meant to sadden or shock the viewer (even to make him/her aware of some important reality) I don't want to see it - I don't need to see a picture full of tree stumps to know that too many trees are being cut down, destroying homes to many animal species.

Mint flavored chocolates and those with raisins and fruits.

Citrus perfumes/scents

Skin care product (as a beautician I make my own) Make up ( again as a beautician I have cases full, to last me and my clients for a lifetime :) - ) Nail polish, unless it's gel polish (regular nail polish doesn't dry on my oily nails and I have tons of them - gel polish I have a whole range available too but at least those I use)

Ribbons that are not even long enough to make a mini bow.

Unsigned works of art - ATC, Postcards, drawings and paintings.

I won't rate down if I receive things from this list, because I know that not everyone reads their partner's profile but probably I will hold back on the heart in that case.

Note:

I put my mail in the post in the evening, so the date stamp could be on the day after, or even the next, some times. I do not send late mail, I send postcards and letters in time from the deadline. I do check out my partner(s) profiles and try to match their wish list as best as I can in the hopes that they like what I send. If you don't receive a swap from me please do send me a message and/or email before rating.
