About Me

Greetings from South Africa.

I enjoy interesting and semi-adventurous things that are not the norm. I enjoy geocaching and I would like to try orienteering. I help my cousin with his group, Snare Aware. We go into the bush and eradicate poaching snares.

I also enjoy postsecret, postcrossing, postcards united and bookcrossing.

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

At the moment, I am trying to collect stamps or coins or anything else from countries that "don't officially exist" such as Greenland, Orania, Somaliland, those types of places, although I love stamps from anywhere. I also like to use pretty stamps in my scrapbooking.

It's interesting to try out different teas. It's also pretty difficult 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, Alphabet stickers, ATCs, Books, Bees, Dogs, Dragonflies, Eighties (the decade), Ephemera, Envelopes, Facemasks, Fairies, Feathers, Frogs, Gadgets, Garden gates, Geocaching, Goodies, Kitchen towels, Labyrinths, Mazes, Miniatures, Notecards, Owls, Playing cards with interesting pictures, Postage stamps, Postcards, Puzzles, Rain, Schitt's Creek, Stickers, Scrapbooking, Tags (decorated or not), Tea, Tickets, Vintage, Washi tape, Wax seals

Comment: Thank you for the library postcard. I love libraries, too, big and little. We have many 'little libraries' in our community. They are so cute and I love the idea of kids being able to pick a book out of the little libraries. Maybe someday you will have a house big enough for your own library. :) Take care!

Comment: Thanks for sharing! I love the painting by Michelle Offerman, will definitely check out more from her. I'd love to visit both Durban and the beach. Hopefully I'll have the opportunity to do so one day. All the best!

Comment: Thank you very much for your "G" ATC Jayne. The extras you sent are appreciated as well. That peacock paper is beautiful and I shall covet the stamp on the envelope even more after reading your profile and finding out how hard it is to find "real" stamps. Pleasure swapping with you :)
Response: It reached quicker than I expected. I'm so pleased.

Comment: Got your card today! Hope you’re still doing okay. I don’t feel like my neighborhood is out of the COVID woods yet, but my mom and I have both had our first dose of vaccine so I feel safer than I did before.

Comment: Hello Jayne Smith I was not expecting to get an email from South Africa today, but I am excited about it. Good to hear all is well in your life and that is wonderful you are surrounded by nature. I agree with you about standing in line to get paperwork done. Here in the U.S. it’s the DMV line of hell. You have to wait months to get an appointment or wait hours as a walk in to get a driver license. Thank you for sharing and adding a picture with sound too. Have a wonderful blessed day.
