About Me

I love sending and receiving snail so I guess this is the right place for me!

I live with my husband, daughter and son. We have a very old pet rabbit. His name is Wilfred and he is now 12.

I love cooking and swapping recipes.

I love all things nature-related. I love animals too, although I don't have a favourite animal, I think they are all equally wonderful.

My favourites are stamps and

I love postcards depicting nature, so any animals of your country, lovely scenic views, farms, that kind of thing :).

The same goes for stamps too. I love pictorial stamps!

Favorite Music

I love heavy metal. Especially from Europe. My favourite bands are Nightwish and Katatonia.

Not really into current pop but I have a soft spot for 80's pop. I guess that is what I was bought up on. Haha.

Favorite Books

I like to read, but with young children it’s difficult to find the time

Genres I like: *Scifi - particularly set in post apocalyptic world (my current favourite is "The Girl with all the Gifts" - excellent book, totally should check it out.) *Thriller - particularly crime thriller - I love Agatha Christie novels - Poriot in particular. *Fantasy - I love the LOTR books and I’m currently very slowly working my way through the Wheel of Time series.

Favourite Teas

I love tea, I am an avid tea drinker, my favourites are black tea. I love a good strong Assam as my favourite every day tea. I also like black tea blended with chocolate.

I don't like lap song shosong tea!

I'm open to others to try!

Favorite Crafts

I love ALL the crafts. I am willing to give anything a go. Currently I am into ATCs, combining mixed media and more traditional painting and drawing.

I like art journaling and making little bits for people

I like collage and colouring for days when I want to do art but I don’t have the energy and I like more traditional art when I get the time. I’ve been into gauche painting at the moment.

Dislikes

I don’t have many dislikes. But I can’t stand Harry Potter or anything Disney!

Things I like to swap.

I love different things I can use for collage, particularly around the theme of nature, animals, plants, birds, etc. especially bees and flowers. It can be hand drawn, found, printed, anything! Not everyone has access to beautiful vintage ephemera and that’s ok!

I love stationery. Note sheets, stickers, letter paper, anything. Especially ones with cute animals on.

I like to swap recipes too. I can’t abide eating the same meal multiple times so I’m open to new ideas.

Bookmarks! You can never have too many book marks.

Postcards. I love postcards with short and sweet messages.

ATCs. Who doesn’t love miniature pieces of art?

Comment: Hi Laura! Thank you for the beautiful, handmade card! I want to go to a bee festival! We have a small one here in West Seattle every year to help save the bees. It isn't as big as the one you and your kiddos went to sounds though. How fun! Have a great week! Warmly, Ginger

Comment: Thanks for the note. Laid back weekends are sometimes the best! Hopefully you are having luck with lunches for your kids. Luckily, mine are past the age of needing school lunches. And I take leftovers everyday.

Comment: Thank you for sharing about your weekend! I hope you enjoyed your time with your family in Scotland (I hope to visit England, Scotland and Ireland at some point). It's nice that your in-laws were able to help you but it's unfortunate that they aren't tidier. Your daughter sounds adorable - I hope she's enjoying school and that her new lunch box is still suitable. I also hope that your son had a fun birthday and that he's enjoying nursery! Wishing that you are able to rest and relax when you have some time to yourself.

Comment: Love your Zine! All too often we don't allow ourselves JOYFUL moments and we need to be more mindful to create joyfulness for ourselves. I really love this swap - i am learning about people and how they think and it's definitely enlightening me to possible words for my own consideration for 2023!!

Just hopping by to tell you my letter is on the way. If you can make some time off, I took care of snacks and reading material! ;) Warm hugs, Sandra PS It's nice if you can let me know if it arrived...
