About Me

I first discovered Pocket Letters in 2016 on Janette Lane's website www.pocketletter.com. I loved the idea of penpals via craft and have become active on her website since. Also into sustainability, so love recycling. Have made PLs using Travel Brochures, Postcards, Cereal Box, etc. In 2017 made 5 Christmas themed PLs using previous years Christmas cards, cutting out the cutest pics from the cards and incorporating them into the PL. Worked a treat! Love experimenting with Mixed Media, using the Gel Press, watercolours, stamping. Making lots of cards for birthdays and special occasions.

We have a gorgeous Rhodesian Ridgeback, she is 10yrs old. She is our baby. A gentle soul. Always hungry for food. Sleeps alot, but when its time for a walk, she wakes up instantly and is all excited.

Favourite colour: Orange

Favorite Music

Any Australian music: Cold Chisel, Deborah Conway, Joe Camilleri, Australian Crawl, Richard Clapton, Vika and Linda Bull, Divinyls, Bachelor Girl ... lots from the 70s, 80s etc.

Favorite Books

Comment: Thanks for this beautiful PC! I actually received 2, as the backing had totally separated from the front. I am amazed it reached me. I suggest you use double stick tape or Adtech Crafter's tape to put two shiny surfaces together. I love the scones recipe and the antique spoon as well as all the pretty cups! What is your favorite jam to put on them? Your PC brightened my day! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: Hi Sherry, so lucky that you got the PC whole! So sorry. Must have been the medium I used. Yes, the shiny part must be a problem. I will know for next time. Love strawberry jam on scones! Thank you for rating.
