About Me

Hello from Ireland!

I love to craft, read, watch films, playing with my dog, and walking in nature. I enjoy travelling and having time to relax!

I find crafting very therapeutic as I have ongoing mental health issues as well as several invisible disabilities that can make day to day tasks very difficult.

I love being in nature and am blessed to live in a town on the River Shannon.

I am part of the LGBTQI+ community. I am prochoice. I believe Black Lives Matter. I support indigenous lives. I know that not all disabilities are visible and have several invisible disabilities myself.

I always rate and always send so please contact me if something doesn't arrive! Please allow extra time if you live outside of Europe as I'm sending from Ireland.

I love receiving...

I like these items and themes:

  • Washi tape

  • Interesting papers eg. Vellum / embossed / metallic patterns or elements / handmade with flowers in it

  • Die cut shapes esp. plants, flourishes, nature themed.

  • Black Milk Project stamps!

  • Ephemera

  • Old vintage photographs of ladies, children, gay couples, animals (original photos or high quality reprints are both great!)

  • Pastels and muted colours

  • Rose gold

  • Flowers and leaves

  • Foxes / otters / rabbits / deer / sea turtles / fruit bats / woodland creaturesr

  • Butterflies and moths of all kinds

  • Naturalist themes (esp. with spooky overtones) - preserved butterflies, animal bones, feathers, dried flowers. Folklore oddities and real life chimeras such as jackalopes and chimera cats!

  • Mystic/Esoteric theme

  • Gothic, spooky theme (Think "a walk in a haunted woods under a full moon" rather than characters like Frankenstien/Dracula or the more cartoony/kiddy imagery)

  • Nature connected spiritualism, the seasons and the elements

  • Art Deco patterns

  • Traditional Japanese nature - cherry blossoms, bamboo, sakura flowers, waterlilies...

  • Tasteful nude images, especially vintage, and figure studies of the body

I would rather not receive...

These items/themes aren't to my taste:

  • Postage stamps (I have too many!)

  • Architecture

  • Historical or war based items, stories, or articles

  • Transport - trains, cars, etc.

  • Modern leaflets/magazines cut outs/photos/maps

  • Religious iconography of any kind, including angels or cherubs

  • Modern fashion and makeup (1980s onwards)

  • Post it notes

  • Neon colours

  • Children's/Kid-ish items

  • Planner, organiser or alphabet stickers

  • Male figures in illustrations or portraits / photos of men

  • Christmas themed items esp. old fashioned Christmas imagery of Santa, nativity, angels .8(I love wintery themed items though - snowflakes, deer, holly, robins, hot cocoa, pine trees..!)

Favorite Crafts

I love to craft - ATCs, wax seals, ephemera, story prompts, and decoden are favourites of mine.

I've a sweet tooth!

Let me know if you'd ever like to receive anything unique to Ireland!

I love receiving sweets/candy from around the world!

Yummy: Honeycomb, milk chocolate, Haribo, sour candy, salted caramel, toffee, cola bottles, watermelon sour patch, chocolate pretzels, Ferrero Roche, pretzel/peanut/brownie M&Ms

Icky: Hersheys brand, spicy/hot, liquorice, coffee flavour, liquer/alcohol, dark chocolate, coconut, banana
