PLEASE NOTE: I always mark my overseas declaration value as under $5, regardless of the value of the package. I was advised to do this to avoid "lost mail" at the hands of dishonest postal workers. So please don't look at the value I have written on the declaration and think I have skimped on your swap. I always put thought and money into my swaps, and I hope you enjoy what I send :)
If for some reason your swap doesn't arrive, PLEASE message me and let me know. International postage can be slow, especially to and from Australia. I always allow a month before messaging people about swaps. I ALWAYS send my swaps, and if there is ever a reason I may be delayed I PROMISE to send a message and let you know. I ask that you please do the same. If a month has passed and you still don't receive anything from me I will re-send.
Because of my work hours I often have to prepare my packages and give them to my husband to post for me. He works as emergency response at the local copper mine and there have been 2 occasions now where he has been called back to work and has not got the packages to the post office on that day. If the postmark is a day later, this is why.
A couple of months ago I was watching The Adventures Of The Travelling Pants and it gave me the idea of hosting a travelling apron swap!
I created The Adventures Of The Travelling Apron and I'll be hosting it every month. I'm really excited about this swap and I'm really hoping it takes off!
I'd really love it if you would just have a look at it and see if it's something that might appeal to you! :)
My favourite book is East Of Eden by John Steinbeck.
My "other" favourite is Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell (I collect copies of this book - any language, any condition. I'd love it if you could send me a copy from your country! )
I also love the Twilight Saga and The Hunger Games. I'm about to start reading The Perks Of Being A Wallflower.
I am a married mother of 2. I work 5 days a week and in my spare time I love cooking, watching movies and writing letters! I love opening the mail box and seeing something other than bills!!! :)
I love animals!! We have lots of pets and at times it can be a bit of a zoo!
We have a Jack Russell Terrier dog named Edward, 3 cats named Jack, a Buddy and Franklin, 3ducks named Whitney, Britney and Taco Bill, 1 guinea pig named Annie, and 2 goldfish who have no names ~ maybe Fish 1 and Fish 2 :)
I feel really stressed when I read someone's profile and they have a huge list of "do not send" items! I honestly don't mind what you send me. If I sign up for a swap, I'm happy to receive anything that meets the swap requirements, so go nuts, send me anything!!! :)
Dish towels/tea towels
Anything from Greece
Little Golden Books
Unused Airmail labels from different countries (the ones that are free from your post office)
Fun shaped paper clips
Anything with a brown & gold/yellow colour theme (my beloved AFL football team ~ Hawthorn Hawks 💛)

Copies of Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell (any condition, any language)
Anything related to Robbie Williams
Fun chain games
ANYTHING AT ALL!!! 😃
I love Robbie Williams!!
I often end up with excess FBs, Label Bags, Slams, Decos, Chain Games, etc. If you would like to do a one-off private swap just inbox me! :)

I am absolutely shattered by this rating. It has been given to me without any contact or communication, and I have had no response to my messages. To those of you who have received my swaps, you know I put thought and care into my packages.
Please think, be considerate and communicate before you rate people.
UPDATE 16/10/14: I have sent several messages and left a comment on the profile of the person who gave me this rating. I have had no response to any of my messages. I would also like to mention that for this swap we had 3 partners. This swapper gave a rating of 1 to all 3 of her partners on the same day and has not communicated with any of us. Also, she has only been rated by 1 of her partners, with 2 people still waiting to receive their swap.
UPDATE 20/10/14: This package was returned to me today with a "wrong address" sticker on it. I double checked Jodie's address against the one on the swap and I had it written correctly. This swapper has either moved house or written her address wrongly when signing up.
I am absolutely in love with Greece and I love to receive anything from there.
My Greek obsession began when I was just 12 years old, and 12 years later in 2000 my husband and I spent 2 wonderful months travelling this beautiful country.
I would love to do private swaps with anyone living in Greece.
I'm willing to swap anything, from the most basic inexpensive items, right through to items of more value up to a 500g package!
I'm even happy with freebie samples!
Please contact me if you would like to do a swap and we can work out the details of what we will each send and receive! :)
I would especially love to receive a small statue/ornament/figurine of each of the 12 Gods of Olympus. I already have 2 statues of Aphrodite (I bought one in Athens and one in Corfu) but I have left her on this list because she is my favourite.
THIS IS MY DEITY WISH LIST:
I will swap anything in return for these items!
I would also love to receive cumquat liqueur from Corfu - we can't get it in Australia!
So basically as I said, I would love ANYTHING from Greece! If you are looking for more specific ideas, here is a list of my most desired items:
Deity statues as listed above, also statues of Demi-gods, or the statue "devotion"
Tea towels, aprons, oven mitts
Cumquat liqueur, ouzo, retsina
Cook books (written in English or with translations)
Herbs or spices
Preserved olives or olive oil
Any factory sealed food/drink item
"Cats of Greece" themed items
