About Me

UPDATE: 3 MAY 2019 Due to the VERY UNPREDICTABLE and NON-DELIVERY of postal items from SA and to SA I have had to put my account on hold.

I am a young at heart South African girl living in Cape Town who loves life and lives it large. I am married and also a mom to a 14 year old boy who keeps me very busy. 

I am creative and I enjoy gardening, cycling, writing correspondence, photography, paper crafts and fabric crafts too.

I tend to lean towards simplicity (for eg. I love stick families and animals pics).  For me, less is more. So… the less fussy the better.

My favourite colour is green. 💚

Themes that I love:

  • hearts
  • bicycles
  • birds
  • mason jars
  • Camper van
  • Ribbon
  • Special art
  • Adoption
  • Christmas
  • monkeys, especially chimpanzee
  • Peace sign

As gifts would go:

  • anything paper (decent quality)
  • notelets, cards, books
  • journaling goodies
  • fabric
  • beautiful ribbons
  • iron on patches
  • embroidered pieces
  • Die cuts (metal)
  • Embossing folders

I am working on a collection of smurfs so if anyone feels like blessing me with a Smurf, it would make my heart very happy.

I absolutely love embroidered goodies (machine or by hand) of any type but even more so on table linen. I love pretty embroidered handkerchiefs.

Right now I am very into clear stamps and colourful ink pads, die cuts and embossing folders.

For postcards: 🖼

*flower window boxes *entrance doors *forests *hearts *bicycles *monkeys *animated cards

I prefer not to receive ad cards or promotional / advertised goodies


*Not big on key rings (unless it’s really special) *tea

I put a lot of effort into sending a swap and I would really appreciate the same in return.

If for some reason you did not receive your swap from me, please message me. 

I don't flake!

Happy mailing Cindy-Anne

Comment: I have waited just over a month for this swap and still nothing, will re-rate if anything shows up Tells me to wait a month and messages me today 3rd May 2019 to say she wont resend and she will accept the 1 rating - charming hey, thats not quite how swapbot works ! Be very careful, total letdown !
Response: Hi Our postal service is incredibly slow and often on strike. Please allow 6 weeks for the parcel to arrive. If it hasn't arrived by then, please let me know and I will resend. thanks cindy 21 May - Very surprising that you type such a nasty update but don't bother to update to say that I in fact resent the swap, sent you proof of the swap. Besides, if I was prepared to accept my 1 what is the big deal? It affects me not you. I think you might be lonely.

Just as a note, messages you post on your own wall won't be seen by the other person. You have to visit their profile to leave a comment. Hope the tip helps.

I read about South Africa through the eyes of comedian/host Trevor Noah and am fascinated by the area now. Have a great day!! ♥
