About Vanessa...

I'm from the beautiful north coast of New South Wales, but I now live just west of Toowoomba in southeast Queensland. I try to send postcards that people like when I can. I sometimes use my own photos and get them professionally printed as postcards to share the sights of the beautiful places I live or have been to. I love knitting, photography, history, archaeology, letter writing, walking my dogs, crafting and when I'm not writing my PhD thesis, reading for pleasure!

I'm a primary school teacher. In my spare time I make and sell soap, soy wax candles,my knitted items, jewellery and postcards. You can check out my items if you like

I love all sorts of postcards. I like connecting with people through handwritten thoughts and images they see as interesting. I particularly love landscapes, town/city views and historical features or sites. These help me think about where I would like to travel next. I love history and read avidly about this topic, both ancient and modern. I also love Greetings From... cards. I also like cards from sets like the Postal Hugs and Postal Peace from Christina in Malaysia. If you have any of these, I'd be happy to see them in my mailbox any time of year. These types of cards help me think about how connected we all are and that receiving postcards is like receiving a little of someone else somewhere in the world. I'm also loving the Lou Paper USA state cards which are just lovely symbols of places.

I'm an avid stamp collector, so please include interesting stamps on the card if you can. Maximum cards are also great! I also love writing letters. I have a lot of penpals all over the world, I'm looking for new pals or swappers, from Asia, the Pacific, South America and some parts of Europe and Africa. Send me a message if you are interested in new pals. I also swap FBs so would be happy to send a few of these to people.

I have recently started posting about my snail mail exploits on my Instagram page @teachingness
