About Gaylene...

Hi - I am a mother of 4 (two schoolteachers + one doctor + one apprentice plumber). I work full time and live a busy life. I live on a small lifestyle block outside Wellington NZ with 2 dogs and 1 cat. I enjoy hanging out with my husband and kids. Watching my kids enjoy themselves is my favourite thing.

My goal for 2016 was 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. It was the most amazing thing in the world.

I started University in 2017 because a goal on my list was to get a university degree. In 2020 I finally finished.

2019 was to become as plastic free as possible

2020 was to work with my husband for him to become cancer free, which he did :)

2021 Don't catch COVID-19. and prepare to travel as soon as our borders open.

2022 - I am taking a leaf out of Sonofbilly's book and for each postcard I receive I am going to research and learn something from.

2023 - This year is a buy nothing year. Heading to retirement I need to save as much as possible so I am going to buy nothing new at all unless absolutely necessary. all must be second hand - Including postcards......

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.


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. I also like to go for a walk with google earth and discover surrounding sights shown on the card.

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.

I am always happy to register any expired cards so feel free to reach out

Above all else 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!!!
