About Me

Hi there.

I have always been into some craft or another since childhood. Last year I was very much into ATCs and inchies. Started off doing paper scrapbooking and have lots of stash. I have also gotten into digital scrapbooking which is really great fun - less mess too. I love that I now have my own craft room to spread out, it certainly helps with the creative flow! :)

I am happily married and have three grown up children. When I am not working or doing housewifey things I can usually be found in front of my laptop or in my craft room making something - a mess usually. We have a cat and two dogs - both 3 year olds and very active.

I love cats and dogs and have some cross stitching pictures of cats. Anything with kittens or puppies but not toooo cutsie I love.

I am not really into music much but am pretty happy to listen to most things. I like rock stuff mostly though - Queen, Meatloaf, Green Day and Muse, Tina Turner and Cher. I am afraid I really dont like Country and Western or Rap though.

I like all sorts of books - but I do prefer those with an unusual twist to them. I have the whole collection of Sven Hassel (german tank driver in WW2), all of the Harry Potter series - each one read immediately on collection at midnight!!!.And have read the whole Twilight series and eagerly waiting for the rest of the films to come out too.

I like comedy films mostly and adventure. Some of my fav films includes the Titanic

Not greatly into television but I do like Big Bang Theory and the IT crowd and Skins and almost anything on the Hallmark channel.

I enjoy knitting but this is greatly limited due to pain in my hands so is limited to small projects like bags or scarves. I like to make quilts and with a new sewing machine I am getting back into this particular craft again. LIKES I like all sorts, mail art, ATCs, inchies and zines, receiving "interesting" post is the best thing. I really like altered art ATCs and am working on improving my own style. I also enjoy receiving altered envelopes too. Started to make dotee dolls and really enjoy making matchboxes too.

DISLIKES I am not really into Oriental and too cutsey or Kawii type things WOULD LOVE TO RECEIVE Any extras are a lovely surprise, I have loads of paper already, so embellishments are good and brads are always a winner with me COLOURS I love blue and green at the moment. THEMES I like modern art, altered art. I love unusual embellishments. I dont like very cutesy

Hello friend! I started a matchbox group called matchbox & more and I was hoping since you like to make matchboxes that you'd be interested in joining? I'd love to have you as a member! :)

Hi. There is an easy peasy postcard swap at the Island Chicks group. I hope that you'll join us.

Thanks for being an angel and sending me a Reading Log :)

Hi Annie - I want you to know that your postcard was really cool and definitely not boring. In fact, I'm going to google about it - brush up on my knowledge!

I see you're new to swap-bot, welcome to the fun! :-)
