About netjane...

I am a mother of 3 - two boys, 7 and 4 years old and a 2 year old girl.

I love pretty things and regularly visit thrift shops looking for a bargain! I enjoy baking - My secret talent is baking a fantastic malva pudding, a traditional South African dessert. I have many penpals and enjoy exchanging bits and pieces for collage, junk journaling and mail art.

We have built a new house, so a lot of my time is spent trying to establish a garden and moving furniture around! I love decorating!

I like folk art and traditional crafts. My favourite collections are my Swedish horses from Dalarna, my Russian dolls and my Japanese Kokeshi dolls.

I enjoy traveling and have visited 30 countries. I hope to be able to travel more once my kids are a bit bigger, there is still lots to see of the world!

I love reading about postcrossers' lives - please write something about your day/life!

I have no specific preferences regarding postcards and welcome any card I receive, handmade or free cards welcome! In fact, send me your ugliest card (we all have one), as long as you tell me why you hate it! My favorites show cards I've received and general cards I like. And feel free to go overboard with decorations, I love it! More is more and less is a bore!

Feel free to tag me on Instagram @randomminutes - I like seeing where my cards end up!

**I get many requests for direct swaps, sometimes I respond and sometimes I don't, postage is expensive and I can't respond to all requests. If I know mail service to be bad between our countries I probably won't enter in to a swap, but, you're always welcome to ask!**
