About Me

PLEASE NOTE: We have a lot of postal strikes in the UK currently, so there will be delays in mail going out and coming in Edit: 14th Jan - There are no upcoming strikes but Royal Mail has the following statement on their website in regards to another issue ‘ Royal Mail is continuing to experience severe service disruption to our international export services following a cyber incident... We are temporarily unable to despatch items to overseas destinations… Items that have already been despatched may be subject to delays‘

Hi! My name is Lauren and I am 27 years old. I live in the south of England, where I have lived my whole life.

I've been a member of Swapbot for years now and yet I still don’t really know what to write in this section.

I suffer from a condition called Selective Mutism, which is a severe anxiety disorder that affects communication. I’d love to hear from anyone else who suffers from it, as it doesn’t seem as commonly known in adults. I also suffer from other physical and mental health issues, and crafting/swapping is like a therapy to me.

  • Loose Glitter/Sequins!
  • Peanuts
  • Coffee
  • Dark Chocolate
  • Anything Religious.. I’m not religious, and don’t know of anyone that is, so wouldn’t be able to make use of it

Wish List / ISO

  • Anything Papercraft related or anything that could be used in scrapbooks
  • ‘The Washi Tape Shop’ Samples or Rolls

  • Kinder Chocolate.. Our selection here is very small, so would love anything Kinder from where you are!

  • Dare Bear Paws (I think they are Canadian)
  • Tic Tacs from where you are




It seems flaking is becoming more popular. I’ve not received swaps lately, and I’ve angeled so many! So I’ve decided to name and shame those who don’t send to me and to anyone in swaps I’ve hosted..
