Hello! My name is Antonia, I'm an artist from the UK. I craft and love to make gifts for friends. I've been a snail-mailer since 2007 and I've had penpals from around the world. I want to meet new people and experience different ways of life!
I draw, craft, create and make. I usually sew to relax, unless I'm doing some sewing for someone else! Hahah. I have a Maine Coon cat called Lily, she is the love of my life and my fur baby. â™¥ I am currently working multiple personal collections of postal related things, for example: Cat postcards pre 1920, Airmail labels from different countries, sculptures/miniatures of postboxes, mail service paraphernalia ect... I recently visited the Postal Museum in Stockholm, Sweden. Oh my goodness... It was so much fun!! They have just reopened the Postal Museum in London (and the Post train!) So I'll be sure to visit and pick up some postcards to send to all you lovely people. â™¥
I AM VERY GENEROUS IN MY SWAPS! If you are partnered with me in a swap, yes I give well so please be generous back. I have been a bit disappointed with the lack of some peoples imaginations and ability to put in the effort to make it special :'(
Ahhh, I love films! I don't have a film I prize above the others but there is a couple I adore:
I love dessert, cats, crafty things and drawing. I also love going to museums and travelling.
Kawaii Characters Goods I Love!:
So here is a little intro for my pet cat:
Name: Lily (show name 'Lily Valdis of Zurina) DOB: 04/14 Breed: Maine Coon Favourite food: Anything my human is eating, especially cheese crackers Favourite hobby: Clawing the rug and sleeping Hates: The sound of the vacuum cleaner Perfect idea of a date: Walk on the beach with mice cocktails
I do a lot of crafting in my spare time while I'm not at work, these include:
I alter and make my own clothes as well as making bags, cushions and stuffed animals from scratch.
Paper crafts and Recycling
I love making envelopes and scrapbooks with ephemera that I find on my travels.
Drawing. I use a selection of different mediums to create artworks, for example:
I collect many things, including: - Stamps - Postcards - Miniatures of postboxes - Acrylic jewellery - Airmail Labels - Antique prints of birds and animals - Insect Specimens (The pride of my collection is an Atlas Moth) - Books about Geology, Gemmology and Mineralogy. I also like interesting old books about natural history (like bird eggs). - 3D fridge magnets
I'm not picky when it comes to postcards but if your looking for something specific then here you go. :)
I love postcards with drawings, stickers and tape, I collect stamps too!!
I love all manner of postcard themes, here are a few ideas: -Cats, cats... I love cats.. -Animals -Children's Cartoons - Postcards of Post boxes/Mail boxes (any country!) -Jetoy choo choo cats -Cute anything (I'm a sucker for anything cute :'< ) -Drawings/paintings -Sculptures -Odd shaped postcards -Japan/Japanese subcultures -Plants/botany -Local food and drink -Museum exhibits -Nerdy/geeky -Anime/Manga -Architecture -Weird stuff/profanity/nudity/obscure (I'm not easily offended)
But above all, send me anything! I'm sure to like it! â™¥
For Touristy Postcard swaps: I love to collect strange and interesting postcards from all over the world. I don't mind if they are multi-view or single.
I'd like postcards from these places: - Italy - Greece - U.A.E - South Africa - China - India - Norway - Thailand - Mexico
NOTE: Just to keep the postcards varied; Please don't send me touristy postcards from America (Unless its a Touristy PC Swap).
