I am a bubbly, fun, outgoing, alternative person living in Kent in the UK. I love swapping and writing to people all over the world! I live with my husband and son, and my last little old ratty girl, and I work for Network Rail, in the wonderful world of Risk Management! I am open and honest, and love to spoil my friends and family, I love my job, am very ambitious and a loyal friend.
I am a proud (and perhaps slightly obsessed!) President of my local WI (Women's Institute) - we are not the average bunch and hope to be a part of bringing the WI into more modern times! Check out www.facebook.com/HallingSapphiresWI to see what we get up to!
I am a crafter, through and through... ~~ Join UK Craft Addicts! ~~
And I adore postcards... ~~ Pop over here to swap more postcards! ~~
I have swapped before; I used to co-own 2 penpal and swap groups on Yahoo! - Truly Friends and Penpals, and Cafe_Friendship, under the username of LeilaniBethe. I ran and participated in at least 5-6 swaps per month, Round Robins and Scavenger Hunts, am a willing angel, and never missed a swap my end!
I am a firm believer in Astrology and love anything to do with my star-sign... I am a Capricorn; ruled by the sure-footed Goat!

I also have a guilty pleasure for romcoms... current favourites are The Wedding Singer, Wedding Crashers, Bridget Jones, Harry Potter...
Through my husband and son, I have developed a liking for Star Wars! I adore a Porg, and have to say I was really into The Mandalorian!
I love Disney films, but not the princess ones... my favourite is Ratatouille! Closely followed by Lilo & Stitch. I also love the original animal-based ones like The Aristocats, Robin Hood, and 101 Dalmatians. Pixar are also great, although I am very out of touch with them now! Wall-E is a definite love!

And loads more that I can't remember right now!
I love loads of different types of books, at the moment I am working through Paranormal Romance by Christine Feehan... and young adult and teen ficition writers like Maggie Stiefvater and Cassandra Clare.
I also love Crime writers like Patricia Cornwell, Harlan Coben, Lee Child, Robin Cook, Seth Marjolis... Also comics and graphic novels, especially The Crow by James O'Barr...
Any books with grisly murders, vampires, werewolves, monsters and anything strange is good by me!!!
I love Papercraft - scrapbooking, card making, art journalling... that kind of stuff... wish I had more time to do it though!! Crystal Art is my latest favourite.
I've recently picked up cross stitch as a total beginner, and love making the knotted bracelets. I fancy trying out Macrame, and one day hope to learn to knit!
I also love digital craft and photography; I have recently rediscovered my love for retro photography and old cameras, and hope to get some new craft projects on the go!
I love to swap:
Stickers, Postcards, Notecards, Craft Items, Finished Crafts, Socks, Paperback Books, Buttons and Badges, Jewellery, Music Memorabilia, Film Memorabilia, Magnets, Stationary, Post-It notes, Altered Art, Pet Items, .......and probably lots more!
All of these things I am willing to give in return

I love swallows, peacocks, owls, tattoos, erotica, paranormal romance, werewolves, vampires... The list could keep going on and on...!!!
I also love to receive gifts for my pets (rats), they are the most important part of my life at the moment and they deserve treats too :-)
