About Me

NB: I post the things I make on flickr so Spoiler Alert! if you are receiving from me.

You can have a browse of Flickr and Pinterest to see what sort of themes I like, but here is a bit of a list:

  • Cute/cartoony animals of any kind
  • underwater invetebrates (anemones, coral etc) cartoony or realistic
  • cameras and photography
  • beachy things
  • scuba diving and the tropics
  • WoW (horde side), main is a warrior tank.
  • video games (anything except nintendo - I can't stand mario!)
  • science (though nothing too graphically biological)
  • skeptic related - quotations, skewering of cryptozoology, the supernatural, conspiracy theorists, alt medders etc
  • Lollies/candy, cupcakes and other yummy food
  • Nature - leaves, trees, landscapes, rainforests etc
  • Technology - vintage, retro, modern or futuristic
  • Fantasy - dragons, mermaids (I love mermaids!), chimeric animals, princesses who can take care of themselves, classic fairy stories, castles

I like bold colours as long as they don't clash, but I like pretty pastels too. And muted colours. You can't really go wrong if you know how to colour coordinate. Feel free to use your favourite colours. :) However, my fave colour is blue - especially the blues of tropical water - in case you need to know that for any swap.

Not into anything:

  • religious
  • goth or disturbing
  • lacey or old-fashioned (vintage and retro is cool, just not craft like toilet roll cover dolls. You know what I mean?)
  • anime/manga

Favorite Crafts

The crafts I do: Crochet, toy making, sewing, papercutting, inchies and ATCs, jewelry, photography, hand embroidery and baking.

Things I like that I can't do (yet): Advanced amigurumi, needle felting, painting objects, watercolours, pottery, lampwork, wood carving, letterpress

I do like other things too of course, that's just what springs to mind.

Favorite Television

I like big bang theory, firefly, weeds, dead like me, black books, blackadder, dexter, true blood, my little pony

Plus documentaries, especially BBC nature docos.

Favourite reads

I read a lot of stuff, but not much of it would I like any related craft items for. The exceptions are generally the books I am nostalgic for because I read them when I was younger. Books like:

  • the A Man of His Word series by Dave Duncan
  • the Dragon Prince series by Melanie Rawn
  • the Cheysuli series by Jennifer Roberson
  • anything by Wilbur Smith
  • the Earth's Children series by Jean M Auel

I also like a lot of comics and blogs and would appreciate anything inspired by:

  • The Oatmeal
  • Hyperbole and a Half
  • The Bloggess
  • Sinfest
  • Girls with Slingshots
  • Footrot Flats
  • The Far Side

About You

I always check my partners' profiles before I start crafting, so I'll never send early, but I always send. Haven't missed one yet. :)

It also means if you have any ideas of what you would like from a swap and it's me making it for you, you should add some 'likes' to your profile.

I rate as soon as I receive anything, so if I haven't rated you it hasn't arrived yet. Letters usually take 1 to 2 weeks to get from Australia to the US/Canada. And closer to 3 to Europe. And parcels seem to take longer than letters. So don't panic if it seems to be taking a while. If it's longer than a month though, then you can start to wonder.


Comment: Thank you so much for getting the wattle ATC done. I like it very much. I hope all is well with you now.
