I'm Nicky from Staffordshire in the UK. I set up my account and have never used it so thought that I would now like to join in with the swapping community and make friends, craft items and receive likewise.
I have been married to Chris for 17 years and we have 3 cats, 2 dogs and 2 rabbits. I am a huge animal lover (obviously!) and would love more pets. We do have 2 chickens too but they are homed at a friends as we can't have them at our home due to limited space.
I love crafting of all types particularly jewellery making and some papercrafts and have always wanted to join in with something like swap-bot and so discovered it purely by chance. I have also recently discovered crochet and so am learning that too.
I'm a big fan of Pinterest and love the fact that I can do swaps on that too. Here is the link to my Pinterest boards, you will see I have a very eclectic mix of boards - https://uk.pinterest.com/birminghamrose/
