Hello, I am Zindy! I am a creature from Australia and I quite enjoy sending things in the mail. Isn't it magic, putting something little in the postbox and knowing that it's going to put a smile on someone's face? That's just about the best thing.

So I have this dream, to make a blanket entirely out of swapped squares! This is where I'm up to so far:
I'm putting the black and white borders on so it all goes together even if all the actual squares are random!
If you crochet and you want to help me out with this, I'd love to do a private trade! Just PM me to hear more about it!
I pretty much get super excited when things land in my letterbox, and I immediately rush to the computer to rate! So, if I haven't rated you, that means it hasn't gotten to me yet. Please be patient! Post all the way to Australia takes a looooong time.
I am definitely 100% not at all the kind of person to flake on a thing! I'll always send a message if for some reason I'm held up. And if something's on its way to you from me but you haven't gotten it yet, let me know! Post is slow from Australia and a few times I've sent postcards that have apparently gotten lost. So let me know if something never shows up and I'll do my best to sort it out :)
-9cm granny squares for my blanket project! As long as they're the right size, any yarn or colour will be fine!
-Doilies - the crochet kind! They're such beautiful demonstrations of skill and patience, I love them so much~
-Stickers! Any kind. It's hard for me to get interesting stickers where I live, so this will always make me happy~
-Your handwriting! This fascinates me. A notecard or an index card or something with your ABCs in capital and lowercase would be rad! I'm also interested in examples of antique handwriting- a photocopy of your grandmother's recipe perhaps, or an old letter you found.
-Tea! Oh my word yes. Any kind at all here, also (my only dislike is licorice). Especially small or local brands, if that's something you have.
-Pull Tabs. You know, these things from soft drink cans? I'm collecting them to experiment with crochet on them, but I don't drink a lot of cans myself!
-Snap hair clips like this in cute colours or patterns~
-No religious content for me, thanks!
-I'm not fond of licorice or aniseed flavours.
-Weather's often real hot here in Australia! If you're sending food my way, please put it in an extra bag (like a teeny ziploc one) just in case it gets superheated or squashed! Nothing worse than not being able to read a letter because the pages are all stuck together :(
-Please don't send anything strongly scented! This means perfumed things and it also means candy that you can smell through its wrapper or anything like that. If something smells strongly, customs pretty much will always stop it to look inside, which means it takes FOREVER x 2 to get to me!

Okay, so! Roleplaying is a thing I do. Aetolia, that I mentioned, is a text MUD, and I've been roleplaying in that for around eight years. Before that, there was forum-based RP (Gaia online, how I fondly remember thee). I've done tabletop once or twice. Not had a chance yet to try LARP but I'd be game if the opportunity arose!
If you ever want to muck around with roleplay (want a letter from one of my characters, perhaps?) just let me know! It seems like it could be real interesting.
If you're ok with sending to Australia, I am totally up for private trades.
Wanna do an ATC? I'm down for that.
Do you make granny squares with crochet? I kinda want to make a patchworky swapped blanket, let's trade those!
You wanna trade postcards? Sure!
You want something I can do, but you don't do the same to swap back? Make me an offer, I'm happy to hear what you have to give!
If you want to set up a private swap, just PM me~
If you're wondering about my profile decorations and whatnot, the answer is: yes! I also make a lot of my own stationery and stickers and whatnot.
I feel like it's worth mentioning that I'm an arting starvist, so if there's something you'd like (drawing, painting, some custom headers for your profile a bit like mine, whatever) then don't hesitate to drop me a PM about it and I'll see what I can do!
