About Me

I'm an artist, crafter, Girl Guide leader, aspiring polyglot, and slightly nerdy!

Here's a few things I've made in the past:

I love crafting, especially needlecrafts. I love embroidery, cross stitch, knitting and crochet, and I'm toying with the idea of trying out weaving...

I also draw and paint, but not as often as I'd like.

I host my own craft night once a month with my friends, there's about 10 of us who are regulars, and 4 or five others who turn up occasionally. We meet at my house, so I'm thinking we're going to have to find a venue soon to accommodate us properly.

Girl Guiding

Once a week on a Monday evening, it gives me great pleasure to help run a Girl Guide unit (will be called Girl Scout troops in some other countries).

We go camping, make fires, craft, cook, build things, learn things, help the community and much more. Being a volunteer for Girlguiding UK is one of the best things I've done! I definitely recommend it!

I've grown up bilingual in Wales, so speak English and Welsh as my native languages.

I learned French and German in school, but forgot everything since I had no need to use them. Anyway, seventeen years later, I've rekindled my love for languages, so I'm studying French, Swedish, and have a strong interest in Japanese, and Polish.

My language wish list also includes BSL, Hindi, Spanish and possibly an African language - Swahili perhaps? I've heard it's relatively easy to learn. Maybe Afrikaans since I know someone who speaks it... I'd also love to learn an Arabic language, but I have no idea which one and they look really difficult to learn.

If you feel like writing a phrase or two in your language with my swap, I will be super excited to receive it! Any language! 💚

🇫🇷 Si vous pouvez parler français, j'aimerais que vous m'écrire en français s'il vous plaît ! J'ai besoin de pratiquer :-) merci !

Things I like

I'm open to receiving anything and everything, but I'm NOT interested in any religious imagery (though I am interested in other cultures and happy for you to tell me about your faith), anything kawaii, loose glitter, buttons or anything pink. I love a pretty dress from time to time, but I'm not a girly girl!

I have a caffeine sensitivity so no black teas please. I can tolerate a little but if I have too much (more than one cup in a day) it induces a migraine and I get palpitations so it's best to just avoid it completely.

I have a long list of other stuff that makes me happy, which includes (but is not limited to):

  • Alice in Wonderland
  • Art Nouveau
  • Astronomy
  • Baking
  • Board games
  • Bullet journalling
  • Cassowaries (they're like living dinosaurs to me 😄
  • Castles
  • Cephalopods
  • Cooking
  • Corvids
  • Crochet
  • Cross stitch
  • Deadpool
  • Disney (The Lion King and Basil the Great Mouse Detective are my favourites)
  • Dungeons & Dragons
  • Embroidery
  • Flat stickers
  • Fossils
  • GirlguidingUK
  • Good quality paints and brushes
  • Hares (the scruffier, the better! Please don't confuse a hare and a rabbit - there is a difference!)
  • Jurassic Park
  • Keyrings
  • Knitting
  • Labyrinth (with David Bowie)
  • Language learning
  • Listening to music
  • Making small artworks
  • Merit badges (from any WAGGGS member organisation)
  • Natural history / Prehistoric creatures


  • Nikola Tesla
  • Photography
  • Photo restoration (I like to fix damaged photos)
  • Postcards especially touristy ones
  • Recipes from other countries
  • Retro gaming
  • Rose flavoured things
  • Saga (the comic book)
  • Science
  • Sci-fi and fantasy
  • Socialising
  • Star Trek
  • Stranger Things
  • Studio Ghibli
  • Tea (must be caffeine-free: any herbal, flowering, green or fruity teas. I love trying new flavours!)
  • The International Space Station
  • Tim Burton
  • UFO (the 70s Gerry Anderson TV show)
  • Walks in the countryside
  • Washi tape (I'm happy to accept skinny or solid colour washi as I rarely buy them for myself!)
  • Yarn of any colour and weight!

I'm looking forward to swapping with you!


Although it's possible to join up to 20 swaps, I will only ever join up to 5 at the most to ensure I have the time to spend on your swap. I really don't want to put myself in a position where I'm the flaker! There may be times where I actually have more than five on my dash, but this is only when I might have completed the swap in an evening and its going to be posted the next day.

I take my swaps to the post office so that I can get proof of postage. This is a receipt that has the address of the recipient also printed on it. I really don't want to get a 3 or a 1 just because the item has got lost in the post, so at least this way I can prove that I sent the item on time! I will resend!

If I'm sending a parcel, your swap might not come in the most attractive packaging (unless the swap specifically requests it). To save money and the planet, I recycle things like jiffy bags! The swap itself will be the best quality of my ability, so don't let the packaging put you off!

If I haven't been rated for my swaps after a couple of weeks I will message you, to check that the parcel has arrived and you haven't forgotten to rate! I value every rating and I respond to every one 😊

Please contact me if you get me as a swap partner and you are stuck for ideas! Hopefully my profile should be enough but if you were hoping for more, let me know - I don't bite!

NaitomeaMinx rated for ★ FULL ENVELOPE #8 ★ on Jan 24, 2018
Comment: This package was so AMAZING! 😍 Thank you very very much! Every single thing is so cute I am going to have to force myself to use it all and not just sit around loving it! The kidlet says he wants to thank you too--he's going to put the stickers in his own "planner" now (**Sidebar: seriously thank you I have only been trying to get him to USE a planner and organize himself for school since like just forever!) I suppose mom's "girlie" sticker packs are definitely not as awesome as his very own Avenger holo ones haha! But thank you truly so much! I love it all (if I could give more hearts I would! Still have some of these: 💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖)
Response: Well I wasn't expecting that kind of response! I'm so glad you liked it. I've never done a 'fill an envelope' swap so wasn't 100% sure if I was putting the right kind of stuff in. Looks like I did ok 😆 haha! I'm so glad the kidlet liked the stickers too! It was a pleasure to put together.
