About Me

Hi! I'm Julie, I live in a little village in Scotland UK with my husband and our tribe of beautiful rescue guinea pigs - we love our boys so very much!

I'm a full time crafter - jewellery is my day job and I trade at lots of events (mainly horror conventions) all over the country.

IMPORTANT: Being in the UK it can sometimes take a few weeks for items to arrive to the USA, Canada and other parts of the world so please don't panic if your swap doesn't arrive the next day. If you haven't recieved your swap after a reasonable amount of time, please just let me know! Always happy to put things right.

Favorite Music

I listen to lots of music but my all time favourite artists are Social Distortion, Misfits, Danzig, Johnny Cash, Brian Setzer and Jerry Lee Lewis. Going to shows is one of my absolute favourite things to do.

Favorite Movies

I adore horror movies. I'll watch pretty much anything in the horror genre. I also love anything by David Lynch who is my all time favourite director. I really love Harry Potter too - proud Slytherin!

Favorite Television

Slightly addicted to Pretty Little Liars! I also watch Twin Peaks over and over and over and never ever get bored - it's somewhat of an obsession! Huge fan of Supernatural, Buffy, NCIS, CSI and Friends too.

Random Stuff...

Although I definitely enjoy the 'darker' side of life - I love thunder storms, old houses and cemeteries, dark coloured flowers and everything 'spooky' I'm also a bit of a girly girl - My favourite colour is pink and I'm a doll collector - Monster High and Ever After High. Might need to move house to accommodate my collection!

I also collect anything with guinea pigs - cards, magnets, note paper - I do love those fuzzy little balls of gorgeous - especially my precious rescue boys.

I've been collecting stickers since I was a child and I still get a little flutter of excitement when I see stickers! I really miss having penpals as I still love to buy cute and unusual letter sets and note papers. That I love to decorate with stickers! :D


Things I love that make me smile....

  • Halloween - my absolute favourite holiday. I love everything and anything spooky and Halloweeny! I especially like things with vintage Halloween images

  • Guinea Pigs - my favourite animals

  • My planner - I'm obsessed with my A5 Filofax and Kikki K's

  • Stickers - pretty much any kind (except reward and Emoji's). If they have anything spooky or Halloweeny on them, even better.

  • Harry Potter - both the books and the movies. I'm a Slytherin so I especially like things with my House.

  • Cute stationery - letter sets, notecards, washi tape, clips, cute pens and stuff I can use in my planner

  • Sweets, Chocolate & Snacks - I LOVE trying sweets, candies, savoury snacks and other goodies from other countries. I don't have any allergies so if you'd like to send something edible I would love that!

  • Christmas postcards and notecards with vintage, victorian or nostalgic designs

  • Bats, Llamas, Sloths, Wolfs, Cats

  • Tropical prints, especially if they have flamingos and pineapples

  • Crazy coloured and patterned socks - you can never have too many pairs of socks!

  • Candles - mainly Yankee but as long as they're cruelty free I'll use them. I really love candy scents, Grape, Watermelon, Apple, Patchouli and any Christmas scents too.

  • The colour pink. And anything glittery and sparkly.

  • Thoughtfully packaged mail


Things I'm just not too keen on....

  • Tea - (unless the swap calls for it) I know, I know! My husband and everyone else thinks it's odd too but I just don't like it.

  • Cosmetics - I do love makeup but I'm very very picky. I hate brands like Mac, Benefit and any others that test on animals. Cruelty free only.

  • Dolphins - they just creep me out!

  • Anything with Emoji's

  • Anything religious

  • Anime and Pokemon

  • Musicals and Reality TV

  • Ripped, torn and dirty items - Unfortunately in my very short time here on Swap-Bot I've received a few things that made me cringe - ripped postcards, torn stickers, stickers that have bits cut off them, dirty stickers... I take alot of pride in the items I send out, from the contents to the packaging and will only send packages I'd be happy to receive.

  • Freebie items that advertise stores, products etc...

Favorite Crafts

  • Scrapbooking

  • Project Life

  • Pocket Letters - I love swapping pocket letters and I'm always on the look out for new Pocket Letter Pals so please get in touch if you would like to be friends.

  • Loaded pocket bags & envelopes
