About Gaylene...

Hi - I am a mother of 5 (one a schoolteacher - two at university - one at high school and one long suffering husband) working full time and living a busy life. I live on a small lifestyle block outside wellington NZ with 3 dogs and 1 cat. I enjoy hanging out with my kids. Watching my kids play sports and enjoy themselves is my favourite thing.

I achieved My goal for 2016 of walking the Queen Charlotte track. In 2017 my goal was to walk as much as I could as my goal for 2018 was to walk the Camino de Santiago. I completed this in May 2018 and it was the most amazing thing in the world.

I started University part time in 2017 ( I left it very late haha ) because another goal on my bucket list was to get a university degree. In 2020 I have finally finished.

My goal in 2019 was to become as plastic free as possible. To cut down on my own personal carbon footprint and do my bit to free the world of the choking plastic waste before the point of no return.

My goal in 2020 is to work with my husband for him to become cancer free. he was diagnosed mid 2019, has completed his treatment and is on the mend.

My wish is as follows.

Send me your favourite postcard, the one you would like to receive yourself. One that you are waiting for just the right person to send to. The one that you would really love to keep but you just know that you shouldn't.


Send me your worst postcard. the one you really REALLY want to get rid of but it just doesn't fit any profile. the one that great Aunt Jemima gave you that she found with a picture of a weird old boat that has nothing to do with anything remotely significant. Or the free AD card that you have absolutely no idea what it is actually advertising but you picked it up and now you have to use it. Your worst postcard that you just have no idea what to do with or who to send it to.


You could make me one out of food packaging or go wild and be creative and use any old stuff out of your recycling container ( assuming it fits a stamp that is )

Then please write and tell me which is it? best or worst? and why you love it or why you hate it or why you made it.

I will enjoy them and hopefully they give me an insight into who you are and why you chose the cards you have.

regardless, Best or worst or handmade, I will love them all.

My three absolute favourites received so far are.

I just cannot choose between them.

the colours are amazing and the scans does not do them justice.

Have fun.


p.s. I do have a soft spot for Maxi cards and "greetings from" cards so it you have any spare then they would find a good home with me :)

Expired? - Yes of course.... :( Where do they go? They are worse than disappearing socks.
