About Me

what I pledged

I have a teenage son and I am recently widowed so crafting, swapping and chatting on forums are quite important to me at the moment.

I am a swap aholic and take part in swaps on several crafty forums. I have been hosting a monthly inchies swap elsewhere for a few months now.

I will never sign up for a swap that I can't complete.

My flickr name is T Ann

Favorite Music

My favourite music is soft rock and my favourite artist is Meatloaf, although I do quite like 60 music too. Music is important to me and can totally alter my mood. I like to play my CD's while I am doing the housework (only thing thats keeps me doing it LOL)

Favorite Books

I love to read and spend some time everyday with my nose in a book. Usually when I go up to bed.

At the moment I am working through the James Patterson "Cross" novels and I am loving them.

Totally love all the Dan Brown books.

I like most mystery/whodunnit type books and always by them second hand now. I never seem to pass them on though when I have read them. You can imagine what my book case look like.

Favorite Movies

I am not a big movie fan. I love the Harry Potter movies though and anything with Tom Hanks.

Favorite Television

I watch TV most evenings. CSI and Criminal minds are on my can't miss list. I also love the home make over shows.

Favorite Crafts

My newest obsession and absolute addiciton now is Art journalling/journalling. I have been scrapbooking for a few years and have recently got into ATC and inchies. I like all kinds of paper craft and getting messy with inks and paints.

Likes/ Dislikes


If you really wanted to make me happy...and you are in the US... i totally adore the composistion books you can get over there and would happily do a private swap with anymore to get my hands on these fabby books.


All ranger products, especialy from the Tim Holtz range, Purple, shades of brown, Vintage, Ephemera, Ribbons, Inks, Paints, Rubber stamps, naked chipboard, metal embellishments, tags, jouranlling spots

Other (Totally random thoughts here)

I enjoy collecting - small trinket boxes and charms.

Hot chocolate


I love the smell of vanilla flavoured products, candles or soaps, but dont really like things that have a flowery fragrance.

I like making handmade gifts for my family and friends.

I love stationery shopping and have a collection of pens to rival any store.

I dream of having a room dedicated to crafting and my collections, maybe if I win the lottery.



Pink, Cartoony/cutesy images, eyelets, insects and reptiles.


Nuts (of any kind) Not really into pets much. Tea - I hate tea Kawaii anything

I am brand new to postcard swapping and collecting and would love to collect a touristy type card from each state in the US, each country in the world and town/cities in my home country.

Comment: Sent message and never received any answer back. Tracy hasn't been online for a month at this point and I really don't know what to expect-she doesn't seem like a flaker at all so I assume it's an issue of personal issues at home. Will change if/when receive items.
Comment: Thank you so much for everything! At first I was very confused by the American coins, but oh well, whatever. The others were so awesome though, especially the Chinese ones. :D Thanks again! <3 And don't worry, I haven't forgotten about sending you the other composition books; now is just a very rough time in my house. ;u;
Comment: Thank you so much for your nice letter! I enjoyed reading it and I'd actually like to write back! In 2 weeks, I'm going to move to England for a year, so I'll probably write once I'm there and have got to know everything and everybody. But I certainly am up to writing you backl! Also, the paper you sent as a surprise was lovely!

Comment: Very nice letter! Thanks!
Comment: Update: I did receive a parcel from TAnn in the mail in April. It didn't have to do with the mentioned swap but it was nice of you to resend! I tried to change your rating to a '3' but it wouldn't let me. It might be due to the date on the swap. I'll keep trying at a later time. Sorry to rate you a '1' but I still haven't heard anything from you or received anything. I can change this if/when I receive anything.
Response: Your replacement parcel is on its way to you.
