About Me

I am going to have to take a little break from swapping so i won't enter any more swaps until mid November. Hopefully I won't miss too many great swaps!!

I always send my swaps so if there is an issue I am happy to resend, just message me!

I am an office worker in Dublin, Ireland. I love to sew and craft in my spare time. I love reading, movies, music and all things vintage! My favourite season is Autumn, its lovely to watch the change in nature. Christmas is my favourite holiday, I look forward to Christmas for months beforehand! I love nature, animals and am passionate about animal welfare and higher welfare in farming.

It is illegal to send liquids, pastes and gels in the post from Ireland so I try to avoid items like that, although I do occasionally sneak in something small like a lip balm! That is why I don't generally include those things in my swaps even if they are on people's wishlists.

Favorite Music

Tom Waits, Bonnie Prince Billy, Vic Chesnutt, Vashti Bunyan, Karen Dalton, Baby Dee, Antony & The Johnsons, Daniel Johnson, etc,etc!!

Favorite Books

It's hard to chose just a few but the ones that stand out at the moment are Breakfast of Champions and pretty much anything Kurt Vonnegut, The Famished Road, Half of a Yellow Sun, The Doctor and pretty much anything Damon Galgut, and much, much more....

Favorite Movies

Delicatessan, City of Lost Children, Whitnail & I, Barton Fink, and too many more to mention!!

Comment: First advent calendar gifts of the year! Yaaaay! =) Love the scissor holder! Totally awesome. I need to find a way to hang it close to my sewing machine, where I look for scissors about every 5 minutes. One can never have enough scissors. I think something in our house eats them, and my black ultra fine sharpies. Weird house troll ;P
Comment: Thank you, I am trying to save them till Christmas so need to hide them away.
Comment: What an amazing envelope of goodies!! thank you so so much!!! All the best- Lindsay

Was poking through the swappers on the soap swap and checking out profiles. I think you are the only other person I know who has ever heard of City of Lost Children, let alone ranks it among their favorites :)
