About Me

I am an Aussie female. This year I will be turning 50...eek! I used to have penpals when I was in my teens and I remember how excited I would get receiving mail in the letter box. Heard about this website from a youtuber who does penpalling and thought I would give it a go! I'd like to get into the habit of writing more as I used to write quite a lot...thought this would be a fun thing to add to my writing practice. I am also interested in participating in some of the swaps...some sound really interesting :-)

Favorite Music

BIG music fan. I like most music except heavy metal and k-pop. Some favourites include Springsteen, Taylor Swift, Coldplay, Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel, Colin Hay...way too many to mention and pretty eclectic. I love certain types of music depending on my mood. Sometimes I need chilled acoustic or classic music and other times something to dance around the house to can put me in a great mood. I particularly love listening music in my car or when I am walking.

Favorite Books

I LOVE reading! I love psychological thrillers, crime, true crime, some horror and some non fiction - especially if its about creativity or a person or event that interests me. Favourite authors include Stephen King, Fredrik Backman, Agatha Christie, Louise Penny just to name a few.

Favorite Movies

Is there anything better than a glass of wine, popcorn and a Hitchcock movie? The ones I've watched the most, would be Rear Window, Strangers On a Train, Rebecca and Rope (but I love most of them) I love old black and white movies, some horror and some rom coms, true crime, thriller and disaster movies.
Other favourites include Big Chill, Seven, Jaws and Jane Austin movies based on her novels.

Favorite Television

Like watching some Netflix. The last tv series I watched was Afterlife which I really enjoyed (I also loved the music in it) Broadchurch, Poirot, Marple, Vera, Gilmore Girls, Frasier, Friends (which I still find funny) mystery, true crime shows.

Favorite Crafts

I have always loved doing art/craft projects since I was a young child. In 2014, I started doing pocket scrapbooking (Project Life- which really resonated with me) Now I mostly do travelers notebook journals and use photos and other assorted crafty supplies to document and just play with assorted stationary, pens, papers and scrappy products. I really enjoy putting together small writing and ephemera sets for people to use in their craft projects. I'm using up craft supplies that I have collected over the years and love finding things I can re-purpose from Op shops {thrift stores}

Themes and supplies I prefer

Coffee/Tea/Chocolate

Travel

All animals, especially cats

Fussy cuts from mags

Note cards/envelopes/post cards

Stickers- animals, winter, arty, scratchnsniff, bright...all types except reward/religious

Washi samples

Colour and small fabric swatches

Pretty yarn/thread

Postage Stamps

Ocean, winter, autumn or seasonal, Chrissie/Halloween

All Colours!

Comment: Mailed on: September 27th, 2021 Arrived Safely on: December 6th, 2021. Is that a new record for transit time for a swap? It is for me! You might have heard that here in the US we are having some delays in our mailing and overseas shipping, and that might be why this took so very long to get here. But either way, I'm so happy to have received it! Thank you so very much for the postcards and the stickers! I'm sorry you had to wait so long for your rating. I will be sending the postcards on to a new home very, very soon. Thanks again for the swap, and for your patience!
Response: So glad that it finally showed up. The mail is crazy at the moment- it takes ages to arrive here in Australia and whenever I send overseas, it takes a ridiculous amount of time to arrive. Luckily so far I have had very patient swap partners lol

Thank you so much for sending me back my postcard for the stickers around the world postcard swap! โค I really appreciate it! ๐Ÿฅฐ So happy with your coffee themed sticker as well. Have a great week!

Just noticed that I spelled your name wrong! I was concentrating on the late delivery! I'm sorry Charis!

Trevismom on Jun 1, 2021:

Hi Chris! I'm so sorry but I just received the package that I sent you back for postage due! So strange though because I took it to the post office and did not rely on stamps. It looks like it made it all the way there then came back! On the postage due tag there is not even an amount to additionally pay! So I wanted to apologize for how late it is and I will be taking it back to the post office tomorrow! Again I'm very sorry! ๐Ÿ˜ช๐Ÿ˜ช๐Ÿ˜ช
