Very Important!

Update - 12/06/2017
I have quit my job to make jewellery full time! It's an exciting and stressful change so I'll be slowing down on swapping for a while. I'm getting married on 25th November so I need to save as much as possible right now.

Please note that because I am in South Africa my parcels may take longer to reach you and vice versa. Sometimes it only takes a week and sometimes it takes 3 months so please be patient. If you haven't received it in 3 months then I'll gladly resend.

If you are paired with me and you are sending from the US, you HAVE to get shipping with a tracking number if you are sending a parcel (letters are okay). 90% of parcels from the US go missing if they don't have tracking. I know it's more expensive but I ALWAYS send my parcels with tracking to any country.

PLEASE DO NOT DECORATE THE OUTSIDE OF AN ENVELOPE OR PARCEL (a bit of washi tape is fine, but don't make the parcel look too fancy / expensive). Although I love receiving pretty mail, the post office staff often steal anything that looks like it could have value, especially if it doesn't have a tracking number.

About Me

Hi everyone!

me

I'm a 23 year old alternative model and blogger from South Africa. I love dyeing my hair weird and wonderful colours - it's currently dark green, dark blue and black. I also love body modifications and have a few piercings and tattoos. I love hearing the stories behind other people's tattoos. I'm also very much into the Gothic subculture and everything it entails.

I have some very beautiful fur babies so if you'd like to send me pet items, here are the current members of my furry family:
* Rits - my cat
* Frodo - my Jersey Woolly rabbit
* Merlin, Eddie and Dovahkiin - my rats
* Dobby - my mouse

I am the founder of The Darker Side of SB, as well as co-founder of the Swappers in South Africa group along with @Hoosfoos

I have a 3DS and play Pokemon so message me if you'd like to exchange friend codes so that we can trade =)

Favorite Crafts

I'm into the following crafts:
* Jewellery making (elegant beaded jewellery - see Etsy store)
* Mosaic
* Jewellery / trinket box making - I paint and decorate fancy boxes to different themes

Supplies are always appreciated!

I also like doing private swaps with other crafty people =)

Comment: Thanks for your e-mail. Joss! The facts you shared about South Africa were *very* interesting! I read with great interest your recital of record-breaking animals, but. . .Leatherback Turtles are the largest reptile? Really?! What about crocodiles? I would have thought at least one species of crocodile would grow bigger. . . Also, three Capitals and 11 Official Languages?! Wow!!! Thank you so much for sharing!!! :-)
Response: Thank you for the heart. I'm glad you enjoyed the facts :)

Response: Thanks for the heart! Geekfest is sort of like a mini version of Comic Con. It's a convention for all things geek and fandom related with crafters, official merchandise, gaming, cosplay and other fun activities. I go every year!

Hope you had a great Halloween "I don’t know that there are real ghosts and goblins, but there are always more trick-or-treaters than neighborhood kids." - Robert Brault

"Halloween was confusing. All my life my parents said, 'Never take candy from strangers.’ ‘And then they dressed me up and said, 'Go beg for it.' I didn’t know what to do. I’d knock on peoples’ doors and go ‘Trick or Treat- No thank you’"- Rita Rudner “I’ll bet living in a nudist colony takes all of the fun out of Halloween” –Unknown

I hope you had a lovely birthday, Jossie! I wanted to send you a birthday card but I've been caught up with work and for that I apologize =(

BUT, I told my five year old niece that it was my friend's birthday yesterday and she wanted to draw you a picture 😂

I apologize for how small I had to shrink it to hopefully fit your profile~ but I'm sure you get the gist of it, ha ha!
