My nickname "GNOE" is Dutch for gnu or wildebeest.
I'm an animal loving museum information specialist adoring her rescue cats Kuki and Sumi.
I volunteer at a donkey sanctuary which makes me the happiest (and luckiest) person in the world!!! Definitely a Crazy Donkey Lady and proud of it.
I'm vegan, which means I employ a compassionate & eco-friendly lifestyle using no animal products whatsoever. No meat, fish, dairy, eggs, honey, gelatine (gelli plate), bee's wax etcetera, nor wool, leather, silk, wool-felt or products for either crafts or personal care tested on animals or containing animal ingredients. I find this makes me feel at peace with the world. :)
I'm into cinema, books (literary fiction, J-Lit, mystery/thriller with clever female protagonist), and hiking. I used to make bentos, postcross and geocache but hardly do so these days.
Postcards or other mail (art) about anything of the above will make my day.
For tea swaps my tea of choice is green or rooibos. Preferred fruit is citrus.
My goal when sending out swaps is to put a smile on your face. I personally think swapping should be fun and make us happy; there's too much drama in the world already.
I mark my items sent after I've dropped them in the mailbox. Where I live mail is only collected on weekdays at 5pm. Naturally I mail in time for pick-up when sending out on the last day of the swap. Swap-Bot rules speak for themselves.
I reuse -clean- packaging and such as much as possible.
If possible, I prefer to receive postcards in an envelope so I can reuse the stamps for journalling or mail art :) Love special stamps!
I have a No thanks ~ I'd rather not receive list at the bottom of this page. It's there to aid you, not restrict! Of course I'll appreciate anything you send :-) I will never rate down for getting something from those lists (the thought alone is absurd to me!) If possible I will just pass along what I cannot use -- but it seems such a waste of postage and effort on your side that can be avoided.
So please don't worry about it, nor be offended?!
These are not requests, just a few things that will make me happy. I love looking at other people's wish-lists to help me pick something nice, and I hope that's the same for you.
Crazy Donkey Lady special request
If you live in the United States and are sending me snailmail, please consider using this stamp from the Heritage Breeds USA Forever set (may 2021). It will definitely earn you a heart! Although I'm pretty generous with those already so it may not really make a difference LOL. But please know you'll brighten my day and spark my soul!
Used copies are very much appreciated too! :)
Sorry but no thanks
