About Me

Please let me know ASAP if you don't receive something. Obviously some things are much slower with postage, but i do send everything on time and would rather try to make things right. thanks :)

Hello! I'm 38 and live in NZ with my husband, our four cats & chocolate Labrador!

I really enjoy reading, going to the gym, writing and receiving mail, playing games and going on walks. I love board games and computer games, the games I generally play at the moment are : Animal Crossing, Guild Wars 2, My Time at Portia and Stardew Valley

Plus I don't mind a little bit of home reno every now and then.

Not sure what to write about? I love talking TV shows, Books & Movies. I play a lot of Animal Crossing. I would love to hear about your pets! Do you have some cool scenery you like to visit?

I love postcards, If sending Naked postcards, a card you think i will like will be great - but i also like:

  • your location

  • nature/flowers

  • art postcards (from your gallery or wherever!) I especially like van gogh

  • scenery/castles/beaches (I really like turtles and seahorses)

  • sea-based, ocean life, lighthouses, etc

  • animals and butterflies; especially deer, bears, and mammals we don't see in NZ (all the mammals basically lol)

  • Harry Potter, my favourites are luna, neville, the golden trio, basically everyone else lol

  • marvel or other fandom based cards

  • Pretty cards that you think are pretty! I especially love cards from etsy with illustrations and artwork, architecture & floral themes

(please don't send blank location cards for blank card swaps unless it's part of the swap, i only collect cards that are written, and i think it's odd to send someone a card from another country)


My stash is out of control, I really don't need extras, and prefer you just send the card or postcard, however i love to see things decorated.

I love postcards, washi, stickers, writing paper and envelope, and paper clips!

Comment: Thank you! I loved all the stickers and it was fun to see some stickers from other folks. I also loved the stamp—I used it on a stamp-themed traveling post card for someone who loves Lord of the Rings. One stamp= much happiness. 🙂

Comment: Thank you for the icecream card and note! It's weird to rerad it's getting warmer ('cause: summer), where you are - as here we're finally getting into the real cold days! Somehow I just can't wrap my head around reversed seasons LOL The cats are doing well but demand warm & comfy beds :-D Say HI to yours from us?!
Comment: This is a VERY interesting postcard, I really like it! And the postage stamps you used are wonderful too. I think Piccob at the sanctuary, must be an exceptionally special donkey if he likes ukulele music :-) I wish I could meet him!

Comment: Hi! Thank You for the lovely card! I have been dreaming about taking a holiday in New Zealand! Unfortunately after Covid the ticket prices have skyrocketed and I wont be able to afford it for another year or so. But can You recommend me any places I should visit in New Zealand? The less touristy, the better. :) Thanks again!

Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful fox mail! I love the envelope (and lotr stamp!) the card, washi, and stickers.
Comment: Thanks for the great card and stickers:) Plus the stamps didn't get cancelled!! NZ has some of the coolest postage stamps, I love the cat ones especially. We mostly see Great Grey Owls (on our farm), although I have seen a Barred Owl at a local Birds of Prey Foundation event, they are unfortunately classified as a "species at risk" here these days. I'd love to see one up on the farm someday, there are LOTS of mice avail to snack on! Wishing you a lovely Dec:)

Comment: the postcard is bent, but nothing can replace its beautiful view of the aoraca. I hope you make it there! all the best :)
Comment: Thank you so much - what a nice postcard and stamp! And it got here fast, yay! Thank you for all the recommendations - I used to love horror movies but not as much now so these are good ideas for me! Enjoy summer as our winter is starting to hit - we had a little snow over the weekend...!

Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful swap. We have things in common. Tarot daily readings to start a day. I practise spiritualism, so freeing and peaceful. I work in a grocery store in deli. cut back to 3 dys wk. too demanding, backbreaking and anxiety. I hope to retire partially in a few years. rain and wind from a hurricane west of here. sleepy time! Thanks again. Namaste

Comment: I just received your bird PC yesterday. TYVM for the cute Hummingbird PC. I've never seen a Hummingbird like this before either. But of course can only be found in South America. We too have Hummingbirds here. At least 8 different breeds of them that I know of. Every summer, we put up a Hummingbird feeder and there's always at least 6 or so showing up to feed from it. They are so beautiful ! Take care and have a good day.

Your lovely Christmas mail arrived safely today. It was such a pleasure to open the nicely decorated envelope and see the cute Christmas card with your kind note, the beautiful extra postcards and washi tapes. Thank you ever so much!

Hope you keep in good health. How I love LOTR & The Hobbit. Makes me feel like crying that ban on US mail. & I understand about International travel as FL is having spike in COVID-19, Omicron, & other variants. Sigh. Then, France med investigators found another,...when will it end? & I can't send to you thru my pen friends in other countries. OK, so in the meantime, working on future sends/swaps. - Kathy

Thanks so much for your "I feel like writing about" letter! I loved the Kingkiller Chronicles so far as well - super good books.

Hi Tash! 👋 Thank you so much for the mistakenly addressed owl 🦉postcard. Believe me, I’ve had silly mix-ups too. This 1 definitely made me smile, & I like the perfectly postmarked postage. 💌📬 Take care 🌤🌲
