About Me

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. ♥ 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. ♥

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 :'(
