My stamp collection :)

Postcards

Postcards (preferably store bought) I would like to receive my postcards in envelopes please, but if the swap says send them naked, please as is requested in the swap.

I like to collect stamps too, so .... If you could use more than one stamp for postage (different stamps all the better) I would be happy as a bee!

Likes

  • postage stamps (anything from the 80's to 2019)
  • autumn
  • cats
  • wolves (anything!)
  • dragons
  • castles
  • nature / scenery
  • postcards with any of the above :)
  • mailart

Stamps

I began collecting stamps when I was 9 yrs old, then it faded, to begin anew at 13.. to fade again. It wasn't until 2006 when my mother passed away that I began taking up the hobby again, after she had left a big box of stamps and albums and books behind her for intended for my kids. Unfortunately, my kids, as many kids nowadays, didnt have the interest for these fascinating pieces of pretty paper, but I do. As of today, I have an entire bookcase of stamp albums from all over the world.. where I have collected by buying kiloware stampbags from around the world, traded on the eBay and by having penpals. and now here, where I can swap stamps back and forth with anyone else who is interested :)

Colours I like..

  • olive green
  • dim blue
  • black
  • seal grey
  • petrol green
  • rusty red (autumn)
  • fading yellow (autumn)
  • gold (autumn)
  • pine green

Missing Swaps

Adding this.. just for the sake of those that do send me stuffs or me sending stuffs to them.. in case the postal services do severe hiccups and they get lost in the mail..
please DO message me.. so I can do a re-send, as I myself hate to give bad ratings to anyone around.. when it's not our fault that the mail goes missing.. :)

Please don't send me..

  • stickers
  • cutesy things ie., cards, stationary
  • tea, coffee, any drinkable items
  • edibles (not interested in them)
  • wearables (they'd most likely end up in some stuffy box)

Favorite Crafts

I like to draw alot, so my swaps for most part this year or at least until I change my mindset again, will be mailart, collecting PC's and trying to get crafty with all the cardboard and plastics I have at home.. that is when I actually find the energy to focus upon cutting out cardboard and actually hotglueing the pieces together.. but yes.. mailart.. is my fav right now, it's just so relaxing to doodle away on an envie instead of wrapping my mind around how to draw a spiral staircase (for example) or get just that angle on paper for my boss to accept that my mind doesn't stretch further after work hours.. floorplans and other stuffs.. so.. doodling helps me ease down.. :)

About Me

Who am I? I'm a mother of two fine kids (now grown-up), catlover (got two toms), and seemingly lots of dustbunnies (haha). I live in Sweden since 1980, before that I lived in England (where I was born). Neither of my parents are alive, it's just me and the twiglets. I work monday to friday. Most days the work just whacks me out, but weekends I like to do various hobbies to keep me sane. I'm a foodie, I love food, however, I do not wish foods in my swaps, please. What more.. hmm.. I have a beau.. he lives in Ozland.. we see one another about every 2-3 years or so.. we like it that way.. for now.

Comment: Hi Lucy! I love the card you made and will keep it for a special occasion. Thankyou, too, for the extra stamps, I will certainly use them in another project. I had not seen many of the stamps you sent, so I have spent the last five minutes going slowly through them, enjoying the colours and range of countries. Thanks for being a great swap partner - even your mailing envelope with its bird stamps and silver flower illustrations was gorgeous! Tracy
