About Me

I''m a married 30 something year old Aussie, and have two cats and two dogs. My husband is a sucker for bringing home stray animals so I wouldn't be surprised if a pony or donkey ended up in the back yard one day!

Proud member of Postal Society

I COLLECT teatowels with cakes or cupcakes on them.

My favourite things to do are

reading (my main passion),



writing letters,


smash booking,

postcrossing and


I am a postcrosser (postcard swaps) and I SO love getting them in the mail.

Love anything vintage and old. Like yellow, red, white, purple and pink.

I love love love owls and peacocks.

I also like birds, dragonflies...anything with wings.

Giraffes make me smile.

I love little japanese kimono characters, and anime characters

Gothic Fairytale pictures are awesome.

Love Asian things.

I'm interested in the 1600s - particulary the era of the Boleyns, spirituality (all forms) and japanese animation - such as Studio Ghibli (Totoro, Spirited Away and Howls Moving Castle are my favourites) and japanese art. I would love to study art therapy one day because I believe that when you can't talk, sometimes drawing or crafting can be a good outlet. I would also love to study Criminal and Child Psychology.

At the moment I'm collecting postcards through postcrossing and love getting vintage or old fashioned/retro cards.

Things I like to do on Swapbot are;

♦ATC swaps

♦Bookmark makes and swaps

♦Sticker swaps

♦Card swaps

♦book swaps

♦SMASH book items

♦stationery swaps


You can see what I'm interested in, and I just love to be creative. I always put a lot of thought into things I give people, because if it's not something they will like then what's the point?

I have never not sent a swap because I believe if you commit to something then you should go through with it. You've made a promise to someone and I wouldn't like to be disappointed and so I try not to disappoint others.

I usually blog about happymail I get, so keep an eye on my blog to see if anything you send to me pops up!

Favorite Books

My fave genre would be psychological thrillers, supernatural thrillers and historical fiction. NOT a fan of love stories and I rarely read chic lit. True stories are always so interesting to me, and I love to read about other peoples experiences. Dystopian (break down of society) type books are love! The Maze Runner and justin Cronin's The Passage series are just amazing. I love Philippa Gregory. She writes the most amazing books from the perspective of females - all based on historic facts. All based around the 16, 17th,18th and 19th centuries. My favourite lot of her books would be the Boleyn Girls books.

Other favourites include;

The Secrets of Jin Shei,

Embers of Heaven,

The Other Boleyn Girl,

The Boleyn Inheritance,

The Dark Mirror Trilogy,

The Liveship Trilogy,

Robin Hobb,

Juliet Marillier ,

Snowflower and the Secret Fan,

Pig Island,

The Maze Runner,

The Furnace Series,

Justin Cronin,

A Thousand Splendid Suns,

The Kite Runner (amongst many!)

Favorite Music

I'm a pop princess at heart. Although i have quite a large taste. I love classical music, as I'm classically trained in piano having learnt from an early age, moving on to be instructed by a concert pianist then going to uni to study music performance. I quite like ambient and dance music too. Anything with a beat gets me motivated to do housework!

Favorite Television

This changes all the time. Presently I like;

♦ Downton Abbey

♦Game Of Thrones

♦The Tudors

♦ Anime Series

Although the main thing I love to watch is documentaries. Not a fan of watching sport unless it's the Olympics or some kind of games.

Favorite Crafts

♦Letter writing and mail art

♦SMASH book

♦Junk Journals

♦Trading stickers

♦Trading note papers (japanese/korean etc)

♦Trading stationery


♦Drawing (although I'm not good at all, expect something VERY obscure)


Favorite Movies

Pixar movies


Pitch Black

Spirited Away

Howls Moving Castle


Princess Mononoke


The Hangover

Riddick chronicals

Memoirs of a Geisha


District 9

The Dish


Jurassic Park





Crappy half done craft

Fake people

Favourite Scents


☺Tinsel (yes, tinsel DOES have a smell!)


Things I like to get in the Ma

Chocolate and sweeties

Strange and odd things

Kawaii Stationery

Dark Fairytale drawings or pictures


Old Fashioned/Vintage things

Interesting postage stamps

SMASH stuff



Drawings and doodles

Letters and poems



Deco Tape

Tags for journalling


Anime stuff

Anything unusual

Thrift shop photos of unknown people

Anything that is unique or crazy or funny or different. I'm happy with anything.

Comment: Thank you! The postcard was so beautiful, my boyfriend Googled Mt Martha to try and find out how to rent those colorful little houses on the beach. We have always wanted to travel to Australia!
Response: So happy you loved it! Those little houses are actually bathing boxes. They are one small room and incredibly expensive to buy. They are used to change and store beach things in,
