2013 is going to be a big year for me. I am going to celebrate my 50th Birthday in July. My family are organising a special holiday for us later in the year when the weather will be better.
I am married with two boys (13 years and 15 years), who keep me very busy, at present. I work part-time as a medical scientist at a pathology laboratory. And I also have a casual job as a Patient Model for an Ultrasound Training company.
In my spare time I like to do craft, research my family history (genealogy) or travel with my family.
I have joined swap-bot initially to swap postcards and pressed pennies.
Later on I may try making some cards or ATCs to trade.
This is my list of special requests, mainly they are postcards. Some of the suggestions come from my teenage boys, who love to set me challanges. I will add to it as I discover particular things that I would like. I would be very happy if I receive any of these items.
Postcards of the following animals: Groundhog or Woodchuck, Walrus, Skunk, Porcupine
A postcard with a view from any of the following US states: Alabama, Delaware, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Rhode Island, Vermont and Wisconsin. At present I do not have many postcards from these states.
These are the US state map cards that I still need to complete my collection: CT, IA, IL, MA, ND, NH, NV, VT. I am in no hurry to complete the collection as I enjoy all postcards.
Postcards featuring the following music instruments: trumpet, trombone or tuba. (These are the instruments that my sons play)
I love making cards with stamped images, punched shapes, stickers, buttons, ribbon, sequins and other embelishments. I am trying new techniques.
I also like to make beaded jewellery (mainly bracelets and necklaces)
I have tried crocheting, knitting, scrapbooking, beading.
I would love to try making a Dotee Doll. Perhaps someone will send me one to let me see how they are made :-)
I attend a local craft group where we TRY lots of crafts: silk painting, hand sewing, card making,decoupage, felting. They are quite simple due to the ability of the other attendees and I often spend more time helping the older members than actually doing my own projects.
I live in a house of sport-loving males so much of my television viewing involves watching sport.
Due to my work hours (evenings) I do not get to watch much television. My favourite shows are usually police or medical based such as: N.C.I.S., C.S.I., Law and Order, Dexter.
As I enjoy researching my family's history both here in Australia and in Britain some of my other favourite series are: "Who Do You Think You Are?" (UK, USA and Australia), Heirhunters (UK), Coast (UK), "Who's Been Sleeping In My House?" (Australia) and Restoration Home (UK).
I also like documentaries about animals, travel and world history.
I have two boys aged 13 years and 15 years.They are normal, active, adventure seeking youths. They play Field Hockey in winter and go sailing in summer.
They have just become interested in American Football and Ice Hockey (after my sister brought them back Canadian Ice Hockey souvenirs from her recent trip). As many of you live in the USA my boys asked me if anyone would send them some football, baseball or hockey souvenirs from the USA or Canada. My younger son wants to be a Sports Journalist when he finishes school and he would love to receive postcards of sports venues or players.
My younger son also collects postcards featuring mythical creatures or cartoon characters. He LOVES Lego and would buy every set available if he had lots of money.
My older son likes anime characters and loves reading graphic novels. He enjoys making stop animation movies with his brother's Lego figures.
Elongated Penny Patrol, WTA#3 - @jannieb - would not send to me as I am not in the USA
Thank you, angels!
