About Me

My real name is Vikki!

If you fancy learning something new in a safe environment - come join my tutorials group, we'd love to have you!

I Pledge to Rate Join British Birds


I have been a member of swapbot for over 3 years though I have taken a long time off as I was diagnosed with two different illnesses and my husband left me with two young kids.

I had three 1's from this time and now, after making good, I'm down to 1 who I cannot get in touch with. I could have chosen to start a new account up fresh but decided to continue this profile ones and all. I hope this goes some way to proving I am actually responsible. :)

Important Postage Notes:

When declaring items on the customs labels, please don't declare edible items, for all other items, please declare as 'crafts', 'craft supplies' or 'craft exchange items'. These get though to me for sure.

If you are in a position to please consider retaining proof of postage. It helps if I have any difficulties with lost items. Thanks!


I am a single mom of 2 living in the UK. My kids are my life!

We have a lovely black pomeranian called Teddy. He has come to live with us to help me with my illnesses. He likes running off with my crochet so any tiny dog (or cat) toy to distract him would be well received!

My Daughter:

Milli is 6 and likes anything pink girly and loves disney princess and hello kitty. She is forward for her age and she loves trying new crafts. Her nick name is ladybug so anything ladybug themed will have her smiling big smiles!

My Son:

Blake is 4 and is into Ben 10, spiderman and anything mommy is doing lol!

Comment: I am sorry to have to rate this way but I did not receive a swap package and have not received a return PM from the message I sent. I will gladly rerate if received. I am just shocked since you hosted the swap and are also the founder of the group the swap was hosted on.
