Hi! My name is Colleen and I love all things that come through the post (well, except bills!) but more than that, I love sending things too! I love to take that trip to the post office with all the letters and parcels, and I love knowing that someone in the next few days will come home to a parcel or letter on their doormat that will hopefully make the smile.
I'm 26 years old, I work full time, am a slave to two greyhounds and live in a teeny village in the English countryside.
Mumford and Sons, Fleetwood Mac, Rusko, Caspa....my tastes are quite eclectic. I will listen to anything and everything, the catchier the better!
Anything by Jasper Fforde or Terry Pratchett; I love fantasy and escapism but with those two authors their worlds are only a shiver away from our own, and I love them for that.
Currently Love and Other Drugs, and Django Unchained. I love too many films to really short list them though, but action films probably rank the highest for me.
Sherlock! Yum. Also House, Pushing Daisies, Battlestar Galactica, and Boston Legal.
Tea and coffee - I don't drink them, I don't really drink hot drinks at all so wouldn't know what to do with them if I received them.
Please don't send food or candy at the moment, I'm on a very strict diet
That's about it really!
I make jewellery; I buy, restore and occasionally sell vintage costume jewellery; I'm trying to teach myself how to sew and how to make bath and body products.
I'm also getting into smash booking; I have lots of ideas but not had the guts to start properly yet!
I have now officially become obsessed with crochet too...so many hobbies, so little time!
I love most things that have been chosen with thought and care. My favourite colours are blue and purple, but love anything bright and cheerful.
I love stationery, and pretty papers. I love love love trying out new pens, and prefer for write in black ink (makes me feel more grown up than blue!).
I collect postcards, but like it more when they have been written on!
My favourite scents are fruity ones, especially with lip balm and gloss :) I love bath bombs, scrubs and nice smelling soaps.
I would love to receive anything that I can use in my crafts, particularly ephemera and interesting paper bits from wherever you're from. I would squee with delight at receiving notebooks, nice quality yarn and patterned fabric too :)
Oh and my feet at UK size 7, and I loooove soft, fluffy socks and ones with cute patterns and pictures :)
