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. Recently 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!

We have a gorgeous Rhodesian Ridgeback, she is 9yrs old. She is our baby. A gentle soul. Always hungry for food.

Likes: Everything. Easy to please. Dislikes: None

Favourite colour: Orange

Favorite Music

Any Australian music: Cold Chisel, Deborah Conway, Joe Camilleri, Australian Crawl ... lots from the 70s, 80s etc.

Favorite Books

Action and Thriller. Current favorite is an Australian author: Matthew Reilly. He has a series of books with his main characters. Recommend you read the first books of each series before getting into the rest. Dan Brown books are amongst my favorites. Winnie the Pooh for the characters wisdom.

Favorite Crafts

Paper craft, making cards and Pocket Letters! Mixed Media, Pastels, Watercolour, Distress Inks.

Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful ATC and your lovely note that came with it. I love that chicken peeking out from behind the feathers. I had to laugh, as my ATC for this round featured a feather, too.
Response: Thank you. I was thinking Fish or Feather! Great minds think alike!

Comment: Wow! Great journal lots of interesting things in it. Love the little flip book as well, thank you very much. Awesome envelope as well. I feel very spoilt.
Response: Very happy you liked it. I am still amazed how I just collect or hoard all these items just so that I can use them in my craft! I try and decorate my envelops when I can.
Comment: Your book is amazing! I can not believe this is your first one!!!! Hannah thanks you for the extras ... she was so excited!
Response: I am so glad you received my Flip Book. Hope you are able to receive the goodies! Enjoy!
