Im a 25 yr old girl from Port Elizabeth, South Africa. My mom and I have a scrapbooking shop which is now nearly eight years old. I think I am a pretty creative and arty person. I obviously LOVE scrapbooking, but I also really love photography and other arty endevoures.
I like doing projects that I can put in my home, as well as all my scrapping projects.
After school I studied interior decorating and then wedding planning. I thouroughly loved both of those courses and I definately use some of those skills in my scrapbooking.
If you study my profile you will have noticed that I have been 'out of action' on Swap bot for just over a year. My main reason is that I've had some hectic family issues lately so haven't really been able to concentrate on my "fun" things. Also living in South Africa, postage is not exactly the cheapest thing so I need to control my impulses to join like a million swaps.
In case you're all wondering if I'm dedicated to this, have a look at all my previous ratings. All 5's so you can see that I can be relied on:)
hmmmmmm I like a lot of different music, my favourites are always changing. I'm into punk rock, with my fav's being blink 182, greenday, good charlotte, Katy Perry, Lily Allan, Simple Plan, actually too many to mention. I have recently started liking country music, am liking Taylor Swift and Rascal Flatts. I also like most of the popular music that gets released. Most of the top 40 hits kind of thing.
I really like to read, I try to read at least once a day, if only for a few minutes. My all time favourite book is The time travellers wife. It is such a moving and inspirational book. It is just been made into a movie so I am keen to see how they portray the story. I also really loved the secret life of bees, also such an inspirational story and so beautifully written. I am really into Alexander Mc Call Smiths books. He wrote the series the no1 ladies detective agency which was absolutely fabulous along with many other ones he has written. I have just finished reading the Twilight series and am absolutely in love with Edward. Who isn't? He is the ultimate fantasy for every woman of any age.
I have a few favourite movies and they're also always changing with the times. I think my all time fav movies are: The Rocky Horror Picture show Beetlejuice The Little Shop of Horrors.
Then I also really like: Chicago Moulin Rouge Euro Trip (I know its cheesy, but oh so funny) Grease Phantom of the Opera Dirty Dancing 10 things I hate about you
I like too many that I cant even remember them now:)
I looooove all the CSI's. Love Private Practice, The no1 ladies detective agency, Army wives, House, Weeds, Desperate Housewives, Ugly Betty, Pushing Daisies, True Blood(one of my fav's)
my absolute favourite craft is scrapbooking! Well i do work in a scrapbook shop:) I love making things from scratch. I think I am a very crafty kinda person and am always on the lookout for new projects to make. I like to make mini albums and give them as gifts to friends and family. I also do pottery, I go to pottery class and have made some pretty cute things. Have just got my own set of paints so am really excited that I can now "go wild."
I am also into photography. I wouldn't say I was fantastic at it, but I try. I love taking pics of all the things that are happening around me.
My favourite colour is green. I pretty much like all shades of green. I like different colours when I'm in different moods. I do like most colours though, I don't actually think there's any that I dont like.
I've also recently been developing a bit of a thing for neon colours, especially neon pink:)
My absolute favourite holiday is Christmas. I love every minute of it. From buying the gifts, to wrapping them, to decoating the house and tree to planning the meals. I love every minute of it! I love watching people open the gifts I get them because I try and put a lot of thought into all of them.
a close 2nd is halloween. We dont really celebrate it here in SA, but we try and do some cute fun things for the kids. Last year we all got to dress up and take the kids trick or treating for the first time ever. It was so much fun seeing all the kids having such fun! We all dressed up and took many many pics. It was such a fabulous night, I cant wait for this years one:)
My next favourite holiday is my birthday. Not technically a real holiday, but I still love it. Whats not to love about ur birthday? Its a day of celebration and fun for everyone!
I like to collect badges, postcards, pencils, stationary, stickers, ribbon, anything cute:)
I like: russian dolls cupcakes tattoos butterflies hello kitty glitters bling buttons jewellery handbags shoes rubber ducks asian things I pretty much like anything girly:)
At the moment im really looking for that japanese tape stuff. We dont get it here in SA. We have some Tim Holtz and 7gypsies tissue paper tape which is similar but only in limited designs.
