About Me

Hi there, my name is Chrissie (or Cici). I just moved out of my family home and bought a house with my boyfriend Luke... Eeeek!!! It's hard work keeping the place clean, especially with my craft stuff laying around taking up every surface and floor area. Luckily Luke is very patient and understands my glitter obsession.

Had to leave Madison at mums house but I still see her every Monday night when I visit to watch the Walking Dead:

My bunnies came with me though. Pumpkin is part lop and Sam part dutch, both are girlies and I love them so so much already. I don't think people can understand rabbits until they own them - I've learnt a lot about rabbit care and rabbits in general from these two:

Favorite Crafts

I am more of a paper crafter than anything. I like making my own cards to sell to family members and friends. I also keep a scrapbook of mine and my boyfriends adventures. I am brand new to ATC swaps. I've known about them for a few years but previously my main hobbies involved card making and scrapbooking. I am most confident working with paper, stamping and embellishments although I think I'm ready to enter the world of artist trading cards and I'm really excited about receiving different types of art from all over the world.

I also sew a little too, I love making felt cat nip toys. And I have learnt to needlefelt too!

Sometimes I draw when I'm in the mood to, but that's not very often.

I love to bake too!

Things I like

I've noticed people on here write down what kind of things they like so here is a brief list of mine:

  • I LOVE cats, anything cat related - I will be the crazy cat lady one day! The last 3 years at uni without any pets has been complete torture!

  • Actually, I pretty much love and respect all animals, (the more cat-like the better though!) Foxes and hamsters are the cutest. Sheep are starting to grow on me too.

  • I'm running low on writing paper!! Oh nooo

  • I like shiny glittery things, I was a magpie in a previous life.

  • Decorative papers... I have folders full of them. :)

  • Bows, buttons and ribbons. Any embellishments at all!

  • Girly things.

  • Gothic styles

  • Halloween is my favourite holiday! I wish I lived in the US because it's so much bigger over there.

  • Cat toys and treats for Madison. She's love receiving things in the post!

  • I am a complete chocoholic! All types, white, dark, milk, orange and especially mint chocolate! (That goes for hot chocolate too!)

  • I don't have a particular favourite colour (that's how we spell it in England haha.) I guess pink, purple, blue... orange and yellow make me happy too

  • I have pierced ears, so earrings will be worn! Haha, I love all types of hair accessories too.

  • I have a new fascination with used stamps I would love to receive any you have spare

  • Love love LOVE penpal letters, I have a couple of steady pals atm but always room for more friends, if you think we would get along drop me a line! :)

  • I collect cat and fox themed ATCs as well as animal themed postage stamps.

Things I'm not too keen on

  • I dislike steampunk... I don't really get it.

  • Okay, I lied... there is one animal I really don't like - bears! I can't stand them in any form - real life or cartoon. :(

  • I have no sense of smell, so smelly items would be a bit pointless... although I guess my mom would appreciate them!

Just a thought...

If you can't find anything on my 'like list' to send me for a swap you can always send something for my cat or boyfriend? He doesn't really understand my love of swapbot but I think that's just because he hasn't experienced the joy of getting a surprise through the mail! Here is a brief list of things I think he would be amazed to get:

  • Chocolate; any and all. In fact any food would make him a happy bunny.

  • I think he has a crush on Abby from NCIS, anything involving her would make him blush so much hehe!

  • I re-pierced his ear not so long ago and he keeps complaining he has no earrings to wear (a bit like us girls with our clothes haha) so mens earrings would definitely shut him up!

  • Car air-freshners! Because I can't smell I have no idea what his car smells like, I imagine it's not very nice haha so I would appreciate these.

Tags I am so forgetful.. decided to log my tag games here!

Comment: Thank you for my cute kitty postcard :) ... My rabbits are okay in this weather they come out early morning and late night for a run, but when the sun is fully out they hide in different places for the shade :) ... And your right about this lovely weather, we're staying in the uk this year too! :D

I am far too late in saying this, but THANK YOU SO MUCH for the thank you letter you sent me in response to the Handmade Cat Themed Gift swap. I have been going through a rough time lately, and it meant so much to me that you liked what I sent to you. I really hope to have the pleasure of swapping with you again in the future. :)
