About Me

Note: I have got 6 weeks full time temp work that I wasn't expected so I won't be swapping very much in the next few weeks

I live in Brisbane, Australia with my husband and three year old boy.

I have just finished my Psychology degree and looking for work in the community area.

I have a Staffordshire Bull Terrier named Sadsack and two moggies, Cat and Migar.

I believe I am pretty easy to please and love things that people have taken the time to choose or make.

I'm looking forward to parcels arriving and being able to send items all around the world.

My flickr account is up and running now and contains photos of the swaps I'm participating in. So it will contain spoilers :)

Music and Movies

MUSIC

I love most music as long as you can understand it.

Beatles, Herman and his Hermits and 60's surf music, through to daggy 80's through to Pink.

MOVIES

Comedies. Robin Williams is a favourite.

I seem to watch a lot of kids cartoons now a days :)

Favorite Books

Autobiographies of normal people, not famous actors and sports personalities.

Fantasty and some sci-fi.

Favorite Television

Off Spring

NCIS

Supernatural

Glee

Red Dwarf

Desperate Housewives

Favorite Crafts

Scrapbooking

ATC's

Would love try Matchboxes, and Paper dolls.

Favourite Colours

My favourite colour is Green but I enjoy the whole rainbow and even some good old black and white occasionally.

Likes/Wishes

Anything handmade

Cool papers

Stickers

Embellishments

Brads

Ribbons

Charms for craft

ATC's

Postcards

Tea - breakfast, early gray, peppermint, interested in trying different types

Hot chocolate

Fabric scraps - I have made 2 dotee dolls and would love to make a few more :)

Beanies

Anything to do with Pink Ribbon - my mum was one of the unlucky ones who lost her fight with breast cancer

Quirky things from the senders country

Dislikes/Allergies/Etc

I don't drink coffee (if I receive it I will pass it on in swaps to someone who will drink it).

I'm not partial to crows or cane toads.

I would prefer not to receive religious materials and firmly believe in the saying may your god walk with you.

My hubby get's migraines from nuts and nut produces so a heads up on foods containing nuts would be good so he doesn't eat it.

My little one has eczema so no bathwash, soaps or lotions for him please.

Things that bring me peace

Rainbows - I have a thing for rainbows, they seem to appear whenever I think about my Grandma.

Beach - Sand, surf and seashells, what more could you wish for.

Spider webs - It was one of those mornings when the clock seems to move too fast and my son too slow. Rushing to get him into the daycare centre when he said look mum. He was pointing to the most glorious spider web that was covered in dew and dancing in the sunlight. It reminded my that some times it is important to stop and smell the roses or in this case marvel at a spiders web.

Rain storms - How fresh does everything appear after one.

My Boys

My little man is like most boys, boisterous and fun loving. He likes cars, trucks and trains and is right into motobikes at the moment. He loves stickers and checks my parcels to see if there is any I'll let him have. Even though he is active a good portion of his wake time he does enjoy books, puzzles and building. He usually sits and does some gluing and drawing if he sees me get my supplies out.

My big man, AKA my husband, is a geek who loves Apple computers and sci-fi (especially Dr Who). However he loves his psycho cat and sports cars.

Comment: Thank you for the RRH atc - I like the way her arm turned out! If you don't mind a couple suggestions (if you do - just don't read any further!) - if you back your atcs with cardstock or even cardboard, it gives them added strength. Also, since atcs are for trading, it's a good idea to put your name, the name of the swap, and the date on the back - so everyone knows who did the creative art!
Response: Hello thanks for the suggestions. I can't believe I forgot to put my information on the back. I have had a friend in hospital and have been doing the 2 hour round trip every 2 days so I do apologise for missing that.

Comment: Thank you so much for your pen pal letter ! http://www.flickr.com/photos/cometa-guvaberry-correu/5521026999/in/photostream/ I also like glow in the dark things, so those stickers were a good choice and the pins ! The label says 'Finland' but i think it was a postage office mistake, hehe but it arrived. I'll answer your letter when i have time to prepare something special for you. Cheers ! .Cometa

My PMs from June 21 and 27 have gone unread and unanswered. You still have not sent a prize to @keylee3 for the TTT group WTA #2 in May.

Megbomb on Jul 18, 2011:

I posted a photo of the paper doll you made for me over on my Flickr if you want to stop by!

valkyr on Jun 15, 2011:

Thanks so much for all the sticky somethings from the TTT group. I was not expecting this, there are 6 different sticky things. You're a great swapper! And I was secretly wishing for sticky hands. YES! I don't mind waiting for packages like this!

Tater says THANKS! He was thrilled to get a book in the mail and he likes the picture Jim drew for him. Tater's real name is James aka Jimmy. How funny. 2- Rebecca Moms and 2- 3 yr. old Jims :) It was very sweet to send Tater mail, you really make him smile!!!
