About Me

image Hi, my name is Laura. I'm living in Dublin (Ireland) with my fiance and our black cat named Veda. I had taken a long swap break as it was becoming more of a chore than a fun hobby, if that makes sense! I'm back, and plan to tip-toe back into swapping.

imageI work as a doctor. I've recently changed my speciality and began training in pathology. This means I'm getting used to looking at people's body parts after surgery, using microscopes and getting to grips with autopsies.

imageI'm vegetarian, almost vegan. I like cruelty-free makeup and cosmetics. I like nature, recycling, limiting water use, etc etc. Please chat to me about these topics if you're interested :)

imageI collect stamps. I view stamps as little works of art. Any effort to put beautiful or unusual stamps on my mail will be much appreciated!

imageI like to use postcrossing too. I also took a break from this, but I'm getting back into it. I missed getting mail!

image I like collecting inspiring, motivational or thought-provoking quotes. Nothing is too corny or silly.

imageMy latest hobby is watching videos about minimalism on youtube and giving myself a headache about the amount of craft stuff I own!

imageJapan is my favourite country so if anyone is from Japan and would like to swap or penpal then please DM me. If you're swapping stamps with me, then I would love to receive Japanese stamps!

Things I collect

MAP CARDS, state map cards, stamps, postcards of black cats, postcards of bikes, washi tape.

image image image image image image image image image image image image image

Postcard preferences

imageI'd like to hear about where you live, and anything that is unique or special to where you live. Or quotes you like. Please please don't just write 'happy swapping', it makes my heart cry. Even if you just tell me what you did that day. I love snapshots of others lives!

imageAny nice stamps will make my day!!!!! :) I adore stamps and genuinely get so excited when there's cute stamps. The more the merrier :D

imagePostcards I like: black cats, map cards, illustrations from children's books, bikes, ferris wheels, cats, deer, pastel colours, black and white photographs, night scenes, lights at night, trees, flowers, squirrels, fox, quirky, postal themed, beautiful rooms in homes, the ocean, mountains, autumn, leaves, sunshine, macarons, tea related, and traditional scenes.

imageNot too keen on hand made unless the swap calls for it …

image image image image image image image image image image image image image

Dislikes

Things with hunting, pin-up, dark, gothic, scary, cars, free/ad, or homemade postcards.

image image image image image image image image image image image image image

Tea

FAVOURITES: Pumpkin spice, Autumn spice, Orange tea (Tazo), Sweet flavours- like anything with vanilla, Chai, Cinnamon, Mint. Please only send factory packaged tea bags :)

DISLIKES: Earl grey, breakfast tea, plain black tea and plain green tea. Not too keen on fruity teas either.

Stamps

My favourite stamps are Disney! I love the cute illustrated cartoon ones. I also love animals and flowers. Please please don't send me those fake stamps that are clearly just pieces of paper that you can buy online. That's fine for scrap-booking but if you actually collect real stamps it's really disappointing to get sent those.

imageI ADORE Japanese stamps. If you have any cute illustrated stamps available for swap then please PM me!

Comment: Laura, a very BIG THANK YOU :-) Already your envelope made my day when I saw all the pink little butterflies and your note :-) Yes, I have seen several butterflies this spring and my camera is ready! Laura, I enjoy reading about your exciting day! I laughed when reading about your brother and about you taking shots of yourself cleaning your teeth... I was happy for you that you caught the flight... and I liked your description of the journey illustrated by all the tickets :-) Are you a writer? You can write a novel and I will read it with pleasure :-) Laura, all the best for you and your boy-friend!... Well, it is not all... You also chose beautiful batman stamps and an impressive postcard! Thank you!
Response: Aw you made my day! Thanks for the encouragement :D xxx

Response: The lack of comment makes me worried you didn't like what I made you. I'm really sorry :/ I did put a lot of time and care into your mail though. If you're unhappy and would like a resend, please private mail me.

Comment: Aww. Such cute bunnies! I love the ones in the hands. They are all cute though. Thanks for the Happy Hoppy bunny fun. Oh and yes... Lupus really sucks. And Dr. House is annoying with his whole "it must be Lupus" diagnosis. When I watch that show I want to throw things. LOL
