About Me

Hi everyone :)

My name is Lauren and I am a primary school teacher in Melbourne, Australia. I have a Yorkshire Terrier and he is my fur baby.

I follow a keto diet, so I don't eat carbs or sweets :P But I do love to eat cheese and drink tea. One of my favourite stores is T2 (it's a tea store in Australia) I love trying all different sorts of teas, especially your favourite ;) Tea swaps are some of my favourite on swap-bot.

I Pledge to Rate

Favorite Crafts

I love creating things, in particular sewing and working on my art journals. I have a TON of paper craft and art supplies so I thought it would be great to have a use for them with some swaps.

My 2020 crafting mission is to sew a quilt for every member of my family for Christmas (I only started at the end of February) - UPDATE I still have a LONG way to go with this, but hopefully the school holidays in September will allow me to get some finished.

Favorite Crafts

As well as crafting, my hobbies include gardening and reading. Each year I am trying to produce more and more food at home - this Summer zucchinis were a big winner! This year I have begun saving my own seeds to sow next time around.

Favorite Books

I love to read in the evenings and one of my favourite authors is Peter Benchley - I'm always looking for his books in op shops. I first read Jaws a few years ago, and now I'm hooked! I also love Terry Pratchett books, and my all time favourite series is Harry Potter - I'm currently listening the audiobooks narrated by Stephen Fry


These are some of the things that I would love to receive in happy mail and wishlist swaps. Although honestly I appreciate each and every thing that is sent to me. I will usually be able to find a use for something, or be able to share it with someone who would. I also don't mind if what you send has been partially used, for example a sticker sheet.

My favourite tea that I've received in a swap was Taylors of Harrogate Lemon & Orange Tea, I have no idea where to buy it, so I would love to receive it in a swap again if that's possible ^_^

Something extra...

I am working on a little project inspired by a couple of books I've read where I collect joker playing cards. So if we're ever in a swap and you find you have some lying around your home, I'd love so much to receive it to add to my collection. Thanks in advance x
