About Me

Hello from Ireland!

Update March/April 2023: I am going through a heartbreaking separation from my long term partner. As such I apologise if I am late to leave ratings for swaps received. I will do my best to get on top of them periodically and log in once a week to do so. Thank you for your patience as I try to piece my world and heart back together.

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

I find crafting very therapeutic as I have several ongoing mental health issues as well as health conditions.

I love being in nature and am blessed to live by the sea.

I work in the field of dementia care and find it fascinating and fulfilling.

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!

I love receiving...

I like these items and themes:

  • Washi tape

  • Vellum paper, embossed paper, papers with metallic patterns or elements, handmade paper with flowers in it

  • Wood mounted rubber stamps. I've a collection of Black Milk Project ones!

  • Stickers of themes I like

  • 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 creatures

  • 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 female nudes, especially vintage, and figure studies of female, trans or nonbinary bodies.

I would rather not receive...

I'm not fond of:

  • 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, including angels or cherubs

  • Modern (1970s to present) fashion, clothing and makeup

  • 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

Favorite Crafts

I love to craft - ATCs, wax seals, ephemera, story prompts and happy mails 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

Comment: Thanks so much for the postcard, it's hilarious :D I agree, we have quite a lot in common. I am indeed a huge fan of What We Do In The Shadows (both the TV series and the movie) as well as OFMD. Like you, Nadja is my favourite character! Let me know if you would be interested in swapping pen pal letters.
Response: Hi! Thank you so much for your comments. Unfortunately, due to difficult life circumstances right now, I don't have the free time for any pen pals at all but I really appreciate the offer.

Fuchsi rated for Once Upon A ... Reply from the Heart on Mar 10, 2023
Comment: Dear Dan, I love your swap and it made my friday! ^-^ Thank you very much for the wonderful and amazing goodies and the letter... It's a huge coincidence, but I'm currently binge-watching Downtown Abbey for the first time and your letter just hit the theme for me (Matthew died an episode ago and I didn't expected it and cried a lot. He was one of my favourite characters beside both Bates!). I'm very happy! Have a wonderful weekend! Maxi
Response: Awwww I'm glad you enjoyed it. I really love writing letters in that time period. It was a lot of fun to imagine.
