About Me

I live near the ocean in Australia with my husband and teenage children. I own a rubber stamp company called Darkroom Door. I've always been interested in photography, art and snail mail.
My other interests include: travel, art journals, travel journals and notebooks, theatre shows, movies, music, swimming, hiking, exploring new places, old vintage ephemera, thrift and antique shopping.
When I'm traveling, I always keep a traveler's notebook and fill it full of journaling and memorabilia from the trip.

Collections / Wish List

Any of these items always make me happy:

  • Linocuts, etchings, any kind of printmaking.
  • Black & White Photography (originals or postcards)
  • Custom address labels or blank label stickers
  • old vintage book pages, text pages, dictionary pages, illustrated children book pages, old maps
  • Notecards
  • Used vintage postage stamps
  • Postcards (see below for preferences)
  • Zines
  • Old cabinet photos, studio portrait photos, Photobooth photos
  • Sheet music (any condition, the older the better!)
  • Ephemera (old tickets, letters, envelopes etc)
  • Stencils
  • Traveler's Notebook supplies.
  • Images of trees, flowers & foliage
  • Anything to do with mountains & exploring


I prefer postcards to be sent to me naked (unless it's a multiple new postcard swap and they need to be sent together) Otherwise... I love the stamp, address and writing to be all on the postcard itself. :)

Postcards I love:
* Black and white photography (any subject, including your own photos)
* Bicycles
* Cameras or anything to do with photography
* Typewriters, pens, anything to do with letter writing
* Doors
* Windows
* Postboxes & mailboxes
* Mountains
* Snow
* Music - instruments and/or performers
* Art - especially Salvador Dali, Brett Whiteley, Picasso
* Letterpress
* Farm or rural life
* Trees and forests
* Single view of your area

Comment: Your card arrived! Love the paper you used to make the envelope. And the scratch lines framing the pic of the lily?!?-- the perfect little detail that makes all the difference. (I'm definitely going to give that a try.) Also, thanks for the cards to use in my JJ. The Toy Story PCs are especially cute!

Comment: a very good board of wise words ~ i will take time to read more of them at my leisure ... thanks for saving them to share!
Comment: Rachel, you spoiled me so much! I am absolutely over the moon and love every single piece you sent! You put so much thought into what you sent and really made an effort to send things from my profile. I am seriously so thankful and excited and inspired to create things with these beautiful pieces. THANK YOU! I wish I could give you a million hearts, you deserve them! Thank you for being so generous and kind. xx

Comment: Thanks for the Elvis (or Elvis-lookalike) card, Rachel. I was a fan in his early years. Lovely note card too! I haven't done any travel writing for a while now. A lot of my markets were swallowed up by the internet & e-publishing just isn't my thing.
Response: I know what you mean, it's not quite the same as a real magazine!
