About Me

Hello! I am Rachel and I am from England. I live in a small village with my husband and our one year old son. I love the peace and quiet of the country life and being able to get out and enjoy nature whenever I want.

I have a degree in archaeology and I work in a house which is over 450 years old so you can probably tell from that that I am interested in all things history and heritage! Because of this my favorite style is vintage and I love vintage style bits and pieces.

I also love arts and crafts. In my spare time I love crafting. My favorite craft is spinning yarn and knitting with my hand spun, but I also enjoy other crafts such embroidery and felting.I will have a go at anything crafty and am always looking for new things to try. I have recently taken up watercolour painting and it is my latest obsession. I also enjoy making ATC's.

Because I am a crafter, I love handmade items, so if you make me something yourself you can be guaranteed I will love it and appreciate it. If a swap states that some items must be store bought, but you would rather make them, please go ahead, I will love it so much more if it is made by hand.

I enjoy penpalling and like to decorate my letters with pretty bits and pieces, so I like mail art supplies, note cards, coloured card, buttons and embellishments and so on.

I love reading good books. I am not to worried about genre, but I like them to be well written. I do especially like contemporary fiction and fantasy though. I read 'real' books, kindle books and listen to audio books.

I love food! I like baking and cooking. Chocolate, biscuits and cake are my favorites- I have a sweet tooth! I like drinking herbal tea as I can't tolerate too much caffeine so I tend to avoid it, I do love all tea and coffee though, I just have to drink it weak if it is caffeinated.

I love nature, the natural world and natural things. I like birds, trees, flowers, wildlife but also coastal landscapes, the sea and sea life, especially whales.

I am a C of E Christian. However, I am also interested in other religions and systems of belief. I think the world would be a better place if we could all get along and respect each other.

I have been away from Swap-bot for a while as I have been busy with my little boy, but I am keen to get back into things now he is nearly one.

I am always open to private swaps, especially if they are craft or art related so PM me if you want to arrange something.

Random List of Things I love: Hand made items Mustard yellow, Burgundy, Duck egg blue, Vintage style, English country style, Victoriana, Celtic style, Buttons, Ribbon, Herbal teas, Chocolate, Socks, Flowers, especially roses and lavender, Floral tastes and smells, Birds, Cats, Books, Spinning, Knitting, Felting, long, pretty letter writing, The sea, Whales, Mountains.

Things I don't like: Disney, Really 'cutesy' things, Nail polish, Postcards, Kids stickers, Neon colours, Metallics.

Favorite Music

I like lots of different types of music but my favorite genre is folk music. I also like rock, jazz, ambient, and classical as well as some pop.

Favorite Books

I love books! Some of my favorites are 'Game of Thrones', 'Pride and Prejudice', 'The Green Mile', 'Lord of the Rings', 'Memoirs of a Geisha' the Harry Potter books, 'Catch 22' 'The Colour Purple', 'The Remains of the Day' and many, many more.

Favorite Crafts

Spinning, knitting, paper crafts, embroidery, felting, textile crafts.

Comment: Hi Rachel! I'm sorry for my delay in rating. Your FB's arrived a week ago and I lumped them with my excess pile instead of my Swap-Bot pile. Thank you for the FB's and I would LOVE to write back. My reply pile is quite big (as usual!) but I will get to you! xx
Response: Hi, so glad you got them. I will look forward to hearing from you! xXx

Comment: I've just received you letter (: (the post system in my country is a little bit slow). I would take note of the books that you mention on the letter and use them as an idea for future readings! I'll write you back telling you about some of my readings (I'll try to read some of the book you listed as your top 5 from 2015, so I can tell you what I think about) Big hugs from Chile! Ps. thanks for the tea (:
Response: Great, can't wait to hear back from you!

And I love your bakings, looks so yummy :) I'd love to write with you but I'm afraid I'm quite forgetful with emails so if you have instagram etc I'd love to sty in touch there?
