Favorite Music

I'm a hard rock/metal fan, my favourites are:

Rammstein, Metallica, Seether, White Zombie / Rob Zombie, Depeche Mode, Korn, Nightwish, Skunk Anansie, Kitty, My Ruin


Favorite Books

Anything by Philippa Gregory, Elizabeth Chadwick or Sharon Penman. I love historical fiction!

Also absolutely anything Terry Pratchett - my next tattoo is going to be of the Death of Rats :)


Loving Kathy Reichs at the moment :)

Favorite Movies

The Secret of Nimh, Ratatouille, Flushed Away, Desperaux... notice a theme yet? ;)

Also Stardust, Corpse Bride, Bride of Chucky, Seed of Chucky (Jennifer Tilly Rocks!!) and anything involving zombies - I love zombie movies - Fido was awesome :D

Weird comedies like Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Zack and Miri Make a Porno, Pineapple Express and get him to the Greek!

Favorite Television

I love my series, the top ones are:

Big Love... no I'm not into polygamy but it's entertaining to watch :p

The Sopranos - I've lost count how many times I've watched the entire series with the hubby.

My Name is Earl - How can you not love white trash comedy?!

Desperate Housewives - took me forever to watch the show because of the name but now I'm hooked.

Big Bang Theory, 30 Rock, How I met your mother...

Also Criminal Minds (serial killers ftw!), CSI & Special Victims :)

I liked the first 3 seasons of Supernatural, but 4 onwards seem to suck the big time :(

About Me

Happily Married to the most awesome man ever :)

I breed pedigreed rats as a hobby and also do rescuing. The rats have their own room...

We also own a amstaff mix who looks like a pedigreed pitbull and is the biggest drama queen ever...


I definitely stand on the darker side of life, I'm very openminded, goth, an ex pagan, unashamed bbw, love the burlesque - Dita Rocks! and so do corsets :)


I am loving the crafting! Not really into ATCs bu have made a couple. I love making Dotees, stuffies and anything felt!

Have also recently made a Death button fairy and a gothic paper doll which were lots of fun and turned out really nicely :)


Please note that I am in South Africa so anything I send may take a few weeks to arrive - if a swap doesn't arrive please contact me and I'll follow it up and resend if needs be. I will not flake!

Items also take a little longer to get here (usually 4 - 5 weeks) - I will rate as soon as I receive!


Absolutely anything to do with mice/rats!

Anything gothic, black, red, green, royal blue, dusty pink (or any pink & black collaboration), halloween related items, pitbulls, bulldogs, boxers, bears, esp brown bears and polar bears (me and the hubby both have bear tattoos), persian cats, dragonflies, ladybugs, polkadots, pinups, retro, roses, tattoos, angels, angel wings....

Would like to get buttons, embroidery thread, beads, stamps of any kind, paper embellishments, patterned ribbon or felt - almost anything crafty :) but esp faux fur - my new love is making furry monsters :D

Foods - I Love love love! Butterfingers! Those things rock my world! Anything chocolate would be great (except Hersheys), I also like coffee flavoured things.

I am a plus sized person - so if sending jewellery please send longer chains/larger rings. Rings from a size S or T are best.

This is a monster I've made for a gothic christmas ornament swap I'm in - he lives in a cage because he steals xmas chocolates!




Anime/Manga type things - kawaii - excessive pink - hello kitty

Please please no butterflies!

I am very allergic to Sodium Benzoate which is a preservative used in most fruity things so please check for this if sending me anything edible.

Hersheys chocolate is absolutely unbelievably awful! Please do not send me any!!!

nasreen rated for MEGA Halloween swap. on Oct 21, 2011
Comment: Thank you for my super swap. You went above and beyond requirements and blew me away. I actually wore the flashing horns in work today lol, just to freak customers out. The little monsters and matchbox was too cute and I shared my sweets with my coworkers (begrudgingly). The bag is amazing and well, you know how I feel about the ATC's. I love the tissue paper you used and I plan on using it for decoupaging when I find a nice enough surface. Thank you so much, I really, really appreciate it.
Response: I'm so glad it finally arrived - was actually about to check track and trace for it! I knew you'd like the horns :) Couldn't resist getting them for you. Got those sweets from an unexpected place in town that sells wholesale and has very tasty stuff. It's the reason |'m not losing weight despite walking an hour every day :p Very happy that you like everything :)
Comment: Thanks! Everything was really cool and unexpected. I love the handmade papers especially!
