I am a short, scrapbook and craft addict. I am lucky enough to be married to my best friend, and to be paid to do my hobby as a living! I also tutor Maths in the evenings. An aspiring photographer, blogger and gardener, there are not enough hours in the day for all I want to do! I LOVE crafty magazines. I'm not a very good cook, but I'm learning... And I cannot knit to save my life- so sad. I love frogs. And giraffe's. Hedgehogs too. I love stuffed toys/teddies. And stationary... you can never have enough cute stationary!

I will add to this as I think of things, but for now...
I LOVE light houses- anything to do with a light house, be it a photograph, cross stitch pattern, magnet, post card.... I also love anything with a nautical/ sea theme.
I love vintage things- brooches, buttons (I ADORE buttons!!!), books, stationery, fabric, ribbon, lace, jewellery (esp pearls)... I am always on the hunt for wooden thread spools, they are incredibly hard to come by here in South Africa.
I'm crazy about chickens- my kitchen has a chicken theme. Anything with a chicken on it will make me crow with pleasure (sorry, excuse the corny pun). I especially love tea towels, magnets and ornaments to decorate with.
I am addicted to scrapbooking, and even work in the industry. I'd love anything to do with this hobby, especially abc stickers and journalling tags. I also LOVE the 7 gypsies 97% complete stickers. I love using buttons on my layouts- any kind (shaped, normal, glittery, metal, handmade, chipboard- especially Jenni Bowlin!, clay) and ribbon (I collect tape measure style ribbons, and even actual tape measures). I also love stamps (journalling tags, abc's, birds, vintagy images). I LOVE Hambly Studios acetate overlays, although you cannot buy them in South Africa... I'd love even your itty bitty off cuts, if you can part with them!
For embroidery or cross stitch, I am especially partial to patterns with a nautical theme, light houses, birds (prefer vintagy-looking birds, but cutesy is cool too) and CHICKENS! =D
Other things I love: Scrabble tiles, vintage/unusual playing cards, tape measures, scissors (I can never have enough, especially decorative edged ones), stamps (both the postage kind and the kind you ink) , typewriter keys
I love nutcrackers, french knitting dolls, old pocket watches or any type of clock, advent calendars, owls, birds, carousels, ferris wheels and windmills.
