I'm Caroline, and I live in England. I am a single mum of four children. Three are all grown up so I only have one at home now.

I am an volunteer librarian at a local community run library. Unfortunately at the moment our library is closed to the public, but fingers crossed will be opening soon.

My birthday is July 23rd so am born on the cusp of Cancer & Leo starsigns. I consider myself to be more Cancerian though.

I like playing Animal Crossing and the Professor Layton series. I also like playing Just Dance on the Wii.

I love all genres of music from pop to classical. My favourite artists are Taylor Swift, Kylie, Katy Perry, Paloma Faith, Celine Dion, Little Mix and Damien Rice.

I'm a big reader, and have my own book blog. www.thedivinewrite.co.uk. My favourite author is Agatha Christie and I collect her books. I also like Jo Nesbo, M C Beaton and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I am also on Goodreads and love recommendations for new reads and new authors.

I like films and TV series. My favourite at the moment is Blacklist. I also like Friends, Doctor Who, Midsomer Murders, Elementary, Judge Judy, Murder She Wrote, Columbo, Agatha Raisin. My favourite films include The Usual Suspects, Seven, The Avenger Films, Harry Potter.

Things I love:

Jewellery - Any supplies would be appreciated odd beads, wires, headpins, earring hooks, kits. I upcycle a lot so any broken strands, beads are appreciated. I have just started working with resin too, so am always using dried flowers, leaves etc. To wear - I love chunky bracelets, unusual necklaces and I have pierced ears

Postcards - I am a member of Postcrossing, and would like to collect a postcard/mapcard of every country. I am also collecting the Penguin Book Jacket Collection.

ATC's/Inchies/Twinchies etc - I love making them & and receiving them. Any supplies to make them would be appreciated such as buttons, ribbons, fabric or backgrounds. Mini items, small embellishments. I really need alphabets or text to put letters on my cards & ATC's, so would appreciate any diecut letters etc. I also love emphemera and old photographs.

I love vintage items and collect vintage clothes, so any buttons, papers would be appreciated.

Stationery - I love writing, so any stationery is lovely. I love notebooks and fountain pens.

Colours - I love colour especially black and white with red. However I do like all colours. I love stripes and polka dots too x

Tea & Hot Chocolate - I love trying new types of teas, any tea bags apart from Earl Grey. I love Land O Lakes Cocoa, any variety.

Travel, I love travelling to new places.

I love animals especially cats, crabs, snails, ladybirds, butterflies and birds. I also love nature, I adore trees and water.

Stamps - Postage, to use in crafts.

I can always use swap cards & address labels

Things with my name on or the initial 'C' on. I like my name!!

Anything made by you - Especially an amigurami!!, ATC's, inchies, a matchbox whatever you do!

I collect Animal Crossing Amiibo Cards (New Leaf) and am looking for Blaire and Caroline.

I love reading and will read anything

Dislikes - Dark Chocolate, coffee and sour sweets

My son is ten, he loves Avengers and Fortnite.

We have no allergies

How I Swap & Rate

I love swapping, I love finding out who my partner is and tailoring what I send for that swap to their personal tastes. I hope every partner I have loves the swap they get from me.

I try to reuse as much packaging as I can x

I will rate a swap as soon as it is physically in my hands, so if I haven't rated you for a swap, I haven't received it yet.
I do not rate down if I do not like a particular item, (as long as someone has paid attention to my profile & met swap requirements) I will just use it in another swap.
I will always rate and I hope that I get the same courtesy in return.

I am still waiting for several ratings, please rate!!!

Comment: due to an address mistake (my fault) the pkg did not get delivered, but Caroline messaged me and assured me she had sent it, so she does not deserve a negative rating..I was angeled so all good
Response: Hello I have received no communication from you about this swap. I have proof of postage that the swap was sent to you on 31/7/2020. If you could get in touch so we could resolve the matter x Update 12/9/2020 - the coordinator has angelled this swap. I have had no correspondence from emmaswaps so how can I get rid of my 1? x

Comment: Caroline! What a great swap! I’m a big Agatha Christie fan too. Although I only just got into her books 2 years ago. I think it’s so cool that you’ve got visit greenway and I adore that you’ve sent me the copy of the packet. It may seem silly but it feels like I got to visit too? Thank you for the postcard and bookmarks as well! You’ll have to share your blood blog so I can take a look! Thank you for the swap again🧡

Hi:) I agree with you, the movie wasn't as good as the A-team series. And you have also a nice and interesting profile, I loved reading it :) Happy swappin'!
