About Me

Greetings from South Africa.

I enjoy interesting and semi-adventurous things that are not the norm. My children and I help my cousin with his group, Snare Aware. We go into the bush and eradicate poaching snares.

I enjoy participating in Postsecret (https://postsecret.com/), Postcrossing (https://www.postcrossing.com/), Bookcrossing (https://www.bookcrossing.com/), Geocaching (https://www.geocaching.com), and the Postfun app.

At home, I scrapbook but it's really difficult to get ephemera and other interesting things to scrapbook with so sometimes things come to a standstill.

It's interesting to try out different teas.

It's also pretty much impossible to get postcards here so if you have any spare...

South African mail can sometimes be slow and it's really difficult to find proper stamps, instead of that awful printed out receipt that they use in place of them. If that's what you end up with from me, I am so sorry. I am trying really hard to get stamps but we can't even order online - I've tried. SOUTH AFRICAN POSTAGE IS TAKING SOMETIMES UP TO 3 MONTHS TO DELIVER. IF YOU CAN'T LIVE WITH THAT THEN PLEASE DON'T SWAP WITH ME AND THEN POST ME A 1. I AM ALWAYS HAPPY TO RESEND AFTER THE 3-MONTH MARK.

Stuff I Like

Address labels, Alice in Wonderland (not Disney), Alphabet stickers, ATCs, Books, Bees, Doggies, Dragonflies, Eighties (the decade), Ephemera, Envelopes, Facemasks, Fairies, Feathers, Frogs, Gadgets, Garden gates, Geocaching, Goodies, Hilda postcards, Labyrinths, Mazes, Miniatures, Notecards, Owls, Pretty Postage stamps, Postcards (ever so hard to find in South Africa and then we can only buy the touristy ones if we're lucky; if you have a couple spare to throw my way I'd be very grateful), Puzzles (of every kind), Rain, Schitt's Creek, Stickers, Scrapbooking, Tags (decorated or not), Tea, Tickets, Vintage, Washi tape, Wax seals

Comment: HI Jayne! Thank you so much for the great postcards. And the elephant magnet and blessing is fabulous. A wonderful blessing, I will treasure it. I also really like the postage stamp you used. No, I don't play "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" but maybe it's a song I should learn!

Response: When I asked for more time, your response was "I’m sorry. I didn’t notice it was coming from so far away. My mistake. I’ll keep watch." And now you give me a 1 without the courtesy of letting me know you still don't have it. I am always more than happy to resend if given the chance. Your manners are appalling.
