About Me

Hello Gorgeous People!

Im a mum of two, a boy (13) and girl (6)engaged to be married to my wonderful man!.

I have two businesses..... I must be mad! I am an Artist ๐Ÿ’œ I love to create quirky, fun and fabulous keepsake boxes, art prints, stationary and more!

I'm also a Life/Soul/Mental Health Visionary~๐Ÿ’•

Which to you and me, means that I love to help and support others through life. I'm a qualified Mindfulness Practitioner, Qualified Crystal Healer and currently thinking about taking both qualifications in Reiki and also EFT.

I also just landed my own Radio show!!! Yep it's a new digital radio station called 'MumsSay' based in my home town but available worldwide! I'll be known as the 'Crafty Mum' but also focusing on mental health and how crafting helps me and others deal with our mental health challenges. I'm so excited and honoured to have been chosen to be a part of this wonderful new station!

*************๐Ÿ’•************ I have suffered a life time of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and crippling Depression and now that I am living a life I never dreamed possible, I want to teach others how to do the same! Check out my website and my facebook page to see what Im up to.

So why am I here? This is something purely for me...a little downtime..

I want to push the boundaries on creating and to meet lots of you lovely peeps out there in the big wide world!

I would love to do some Art swaps and anything fun, frivilous and funky!

I am slightly obsessed with Unicorns and all things mythological, Iam a total Hippie and love to hug trees! Yes really! I've always been a Vegetarian, but have decided I now need to go full vegan! My son (12) is doing it with me and partner and daughter will be too...without even realising it ๐Ÿ˜‚ Im an animal lover and have a beautiful border collie cross, rescue dog called Daisy.

I have ridden horses for 26 years and they are my one true therapy. To be out in nature on horse back is one of the best places to be!

Recycling leftover materials, card, paper, bags, Tags, maps, leaflets..... Absolutely love to receive things from other countries from tourist attractions or even local shops...it's fun to see! I love collecting stuff so I can reuse it in anyway possible (much to my other halfs dismay lol)

Stickers!! I love stickers and if I dont like them my daughter will!! (Or she'll just pinch them anyway!)

I've really got into Mixed Media now, so love anything I could glue and stick onto my art! Or items that can be used as stencils, doilies, cogs, buttons, small toy animals....so much stuff I could use!

I just love anything art and craft so much so my kids get presents of art stuff usually with a side note for me to enjoy too!

Things I Dont Want To Receive.

Just a Little Note....

I really am not a religious person.

I really dont want anything to do with any religion as I just dont believe that we should seperate ourselves into 'camps'.

I am however a Spiritual/Hippie/Do good person!

Please feel free to send any motivational, life affirming awesomness.

We are all humans, we should just love one another.

~American Horror Story

~IZombie

~The Making Of A Murderer

~WestWorld

~Walking Dead

~Orphan Black

~Orange is the new black

~Anything on ID or CI, I love the criminal channels, I like to try and understand the psychology and physical traits behind murderers etc.. I did consider being a forensic psychologist, so I think this is why Im so interested)

~Animal Planet ~Finding Bigfoot~Tanked~Alaskan Bush People

~The X Files

~WestWorld

Lost In The Post/Flakers

December 29th 2015 ~So sadly it has got to the point that I need to add this on the end of my profile...Ive had a good few months with no problems but alas I now understand why others have to add this to their profiles.


If you do not receive your swap from me, please~ please let me know! I do not control the postal service and am not a mind reader. If it hasnt arrived, I will do my best to sort the situation out by resending xoxo I want us all to enjoy swapping :) So please be kind and do not rate me a 1, simply because you didnt let me know there was a problem.


If you enter a swap with me, then please fufill your part of the swap, I have been in a couple of swaps now where I have been partenered with people who have then flaked or been banned on here....sadly they were swaps involving gifts for children and quite frankly this is just sucky behaviour....so Im now really dubious about joining swaps :(


I really want you to be happy and if there is any problem, please get in touch, I wont bite, I promise xoxoxo

Conspiracy Theory 101

I'm also really into what most call Conspiracy Theories! Or being a Truther.

So if you love that too, I'd love to chat/write/swap info etc.

I'm super open minded and love to learn about other ways of thinking.

I'm of the opinion that if I'm given new info I can alter my thinking....

Favourite people etc I follow are David Icke, I'm in a few Truther groups on FB...Sergeant Majors Research Group and many channels on YouTube.

I don't believe everything I watch/read. I don't agree with what they say all the time. I will make my own mind up after doing my own research.

We have a whole internet to explore!

Comment: *Edit: Second card received. It is lovely, thank you! Also thanks for the cute extras.* Nothing has been received a month after the mail deadline. Messaged her on Swap-Bot but have received no response. Strange since she has no previous 1s or 3s. Will change rating if ATC is received.
Response: Hi, I'm messaging you now. I've not received a message from you about this and sent it June 25th. It must be lost in the mail. I'll do you another one! ๐Ÿ’• (Jul 31st)
