Firstly, I am very sad I'm partially suspended at the moment and I hope to replace the lost ATC's to my partners quick smart so that my rating can change. I have been a reliable swapper and an active member of a number of forums. I hope to be swapping with all my new friends again soon.
UPDATE: The following ATCs (of which I have been rated 1) have been resent as of March 19 (Australia time):
Cute Woodland ATC #2
ATC - Girl Power!
On March 8 I sent 3 x Zombocalypse Notes packages, and have been re-rated for one, thank you. I still have an outstanding 1 rating for this swap and have messaged my partner about whether they have received or not.
I have taken photos of all of the above swaps and will upload to my flickr account shortly.
My other 2 '1' ratings: Video Games C & Triptych ATC are my next in line projects and I will PM my partners as soon as I have sent. Also, my stamped images tag to @dabellaraquella has not been forgotten, I will send it shortly.
Thanks for your patience and I apologize for the delay.
I am 28 and I’m from Melbourne, Australia. I am married (have been for 7 years). I have a furbaby (cat) named Maxie. She is our princess ^_^
I am a teacher and I am also studying graphic design. I lived in Japan for the first 5 months of last year teaching English to children. It was one of the best jobs I’ve ever had. I decided to come back home to my husband, family and friends, but I totally miss Japan It’s such an amazing country! Right now I am teaching grade 6 at a local school and I LOVE it!
I absolutely love receiving things in the mail, and giving thoughtful presents, so that's why I decided to join Swap-Bot!
Dear Swap Partners (who I send to) :)
Update: If you do not receive a swap package from me please contact me first, don't just rate me a 1. I always send my swaps and because a couple of people didn't contact me before they rated I'm now partially suspended, which is very sad and embarrassing.
On a more positive note, I truly hope you like what I make for you, I put lots of thought and love into what I create for my partners because that is the funnest part of swap-bot for me ^_^
I always send my swap packages (and most always on time). If you don't receive a package from me (and please remember it's coming from Australia so it might take a little while) please let me know. There is nothing sadder for me than an empty mail box :( I will re-send for you so you don't miss out on a swap. Please contact me before you give me a low rating. I was very proud of my 5.00 rating and would love to have it back soon! :)
Sometimes I pop a little something extra in your envelope if you have a little list of likes on your profile (especially if I have something that matches you in my stash ^_^ ) so keep an eye out for that :)
If you receive from me, I would really appreciate it if you could leave me feedback, as that lets me know you have received (and hopefully you liked what I sent) :D If you take the time to leave a rating and/or comment for me I will always leave a reply for you xo
Thank you for reading this, and I hope you love what I have made for you o(^_^)o
Dear Swap Partners (who I am receiving from),
Thank you!! I love receiving what you make for me in the mail, it is so exciting to see a lovely envelope or a foreign stamp in my letter box.
I am working on a piece of art and I am collecting Joker playing cards for it. If you have some spare jokers from any old packs of playing cards you aren't using, I would really love it if you could send them my way ^_^ Thank you so much in advance xoxo
I totally understand that life can take a hold of us sometimes, and things get in the way of swap packages getting out on time. If this is the case for you please send me a quick PM just so I am aware.
Just to let you know, I always leave feedback and a response to the packages I receive. I think it's the least I can do to say thank you xo
Australian Customs Officers do a fabulous job of protecting our country from invading nasties, but unfortunately that means there is a list of things that cannot be sent to Australia. If you are posting from overseas and aren't sure, please check this website: http://www.daff.gov.au/aqis/mail/cant-mail
If you don't have the time to check it out, let me just say we can't receive Tea Bags (of any kind). Which is really sad, because I like drinking tea.
Thank you for reading this, and I can't wait to receive mail from you o(^_^)o
I love books. I love the weight of them in your hand, the smell, the reliable entertainment they provide. There is nothing quite like the familiarity of reading read an old favourite or the thrill of beginning something new. I love turning the page a book, old or new, and getting engrossed in a new story, there is nothing quite like it ^_^
I enjoy reading books in a series. Mostly because I hate when a book is finished, and what I love about a series is that there is usually another one to read ^_^
Some of my favourites are:
As well as the authors of the book series' above, I will usually enjoy anything written by:
Some of my favourite individual books that have either read many times, or have had a profound effect on me are:
I also LOVE non fiction books too :) I still have all my childhood encyclopaedia sets and I hope that one day my kids (when I have them) will be able to enjoy them. I have a massive collection of cookbooks and recipes, which to be honest if I cooked one recipe per day I don't know how many years it would last me >_< But I still love receiving recipes, particularly ones from other countries. It's nice to see the different ingredients, methods and in fact final products :) I also LOVE collecting crafting books and I'm getting quite a library :D
And one final note, I love picture story books, children's books and books written for teenagers!! As a primary school teacher I get to read a lot of them, which is great for me!! ^_^
I love sewing, drawing, designing on my Mac, and collecting (not that I have enough room for that!
I am now addicted to making inchies and ATC's ^_^ So much cute little fun in a little package :D
I love the colour spectrum, my favourite colours are Red and Cobalt Blue. Brown, Cream and Red would match my house. I love the Scandinavian look of bright pops of colour on white.
I would describe my style as Cute, Fun, Bright, Happy, Neat and Eclectic.
I love Owls, Woodland Creatures, Matryoshkas & Monkeys. I love anything kawaii ^_^
I would prefer items from a smoke free environment. And I don't mind if you have a pet .....as long as they don't sit on your crafts :P I am also allergic to hessian >.
Here's a list of some movies I really like :D
V for Vendetta, Amelie, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Spirited Away (Anything Studio Ghibli/Miyazaki really), The Sound of Music, Phantom of the Opera, anything Disney - but especially Beauty and the Beast ^_^
