About Me


My name is Vicky and an illustrator / maker based in Scotland with an obsession with post. Who doesn't love surprises in the mail? I'm super looking forward to getting involved in some swap-bot action :D Snail Mail forever!

Things I love

  • anything kitsch and quirky from the 1950s! I'm a vintage nut and love retro randomness :)
  • stationery - notecards, post its, vintage valentines day cards, notebooks... paper-tastic!

  • confetti! I absolutely adore paper confetti or confetti patterned things
  • multi coloured sprinkles (confetti / jimmies etc.... Vibrant is key!)
  • Mermaids and scallop patterns

Things I'm not into

This bit always sounds so harsh! It would be lovely not to receive the following items:

things with moustaches, nail varnish, hair accessories, dangly earrings, knitting stuff, ribbons, black liquorice and blackcurrant and orange flavours, pencils, DVDs, things that are very bling and covered in diamontes, harry potter & sci fi stuff and any vampire or twilight stuff - I'm just not into it... Finally please do not send bath bombs and toiletries and such as I have sensitive skin and get rashes!

Here is a picture of llamas to cheer you up: Yay!

I'm totally new to swap-bot, so I hope that's enough information to get us started with :) If you would like to know anything else let me know!

Comment: Wow, you totally spoiled me Vicky, thank you so much! I love the tote and everything is just so 'me':) I appreciate you reading my profile and taking the time to put together something so special. I love the pins you made and can't wait to wear them as well! The wall art cracked me up:) You rule, thank you!
