About Me

Hi there and thanks for taking the time to look over my profile.

I've been away for a while from Swapbot due to some disappointing swappers who just didn't bother or gave me second hand/regifted items which made me a little disheartened with the whole process.

However, I'm back again and I'm being more selective with who and what I swap.

For those that don't know me, I'm a 40 ish year old Australian living in London with my hubby and three cats. I've been here over 15 years and still love it.

I travel for a living, but when I'm not on the road, I'm a real homebody.

As I'm based in the UK, anything I post may take a while, so if there is ever an issue please email me and I'll see what I can do, like post another item. Also, as I'll probably be posting things while I'm on the road, so I will rely on the honesty of the postal system from wherever it is that I'm sending it from.

I'm very proud of my rating, so I can assure you that I will work hard to create projects that meet the criteria and will spend time making sure an item is something of good quality and something that I would be happy to receive myself. However, if for some stranger reason you get something that isn't up to your standards, please do let me know and I will do everything I can to make it right.

Favorite Crafts

I'm a crochet addict and a card maker to boot. When I'm not working away from home you'll find me curled up somewhere with a crochet hook and a project on the go.

I would love to swap/meet crochet minded people and hopefully contribute to other projects. As I've run of out family and friends to crochet for, I now crochet purely for children in need (orphaned boys mainly).....so single bed crochet blankets are my fav thing right now.

I love bright bold colours as well as pretty girlie pastels, so many colours, so much wool, so little time! :))

When I'm not crocheting, I bake cookies, cakes and slices or hand make cards.

Favorite Television

I love a good TV series.....any excuse to sit and crochet again lol. My hubby likes to watch movies, so again I'll sit, watch and crochet......but if I have a preference I like drama, biographies or true stories. As for TV, I'm a huge fan of Crime Dramas, Scandal, Madam Secretary, Law and Order.

Good deeds

I believe in Pay It Forward!

I'm currently crocheting blankets for orphaned boys and clothes for premature babies. In the past I made blankets for cats who were given away from Battersea Cats and Dogs Home. My own cat came from there and he came with a knitted blanket. So now I like to give back.

When I work away from home, my job consists of being in shops a lot, so I look out for reduced priced children's clothes which again go to orphaned children.

Favorite Music

I love, love, love music. I play it often and pretty much listen to everything and anything.

Things I like plus not so much

As you've probably noticed, I like crafts but having said that I can imagine it would be easier to figure out what to send if someone lists their likes and dislikes, so I've taken the time to list a few things that might help.

Loves of my life.... Traveling, cats, baking, music, card making, gardening and of course crochet.

I love anything with butterflies. So stickers of flowers, butterflies, dragonflies, ladybugs etc are just the prettiest.

Have a collection of diaries and notebookes with matching colour pens lol.

Weird and wonderful refrigerator magnets.

I really like American stuff, especially the food. I especially like the prepacked cookie mixes, Light Peach Ice Tea and Light Sweet Tea sachets and Cheeze-It Cheddar. YUM!!

Unfortunately, I dont' eat chocolate in any form, as I'm alergic to it. However, I do like honeycomb, hard candy and spearmint sweet or caramel.

When I'm not enjoying yummy stuff from the US, I try to be good and eat organic food and drinks.

I can collect used stamps from around the world, as I'll give them to charity.

I will gladly and appreciatively accept any colour wool but I do have a preference for bright rainbow colours or pastels. However, I'm not fussy, wool is wool and I'm always thankful.

Don't like so much..... Sorry to say, but I do not like coffee, fennel, liquorice, chilli or almonds. Flavoured foods included. And, I can't eat chocolate!

Unfortunately, I don't scrapbook, sew, cross/long or short stitch or make bookmarks.

Not really into Kawaii, lume bands, writing paper, postcards, free post ads, religious items/pamphlets or juvenile looking things.....sorry!

I don't have children and I don't have any nieces and nephews. Just cats who love cat nip lol.

As I'm asthmatic, I have a sensitivity to cigarette smoke and would appreciate your understanding about items smelling of smoke.

Comment: Guess what arrived yesterday?!?!? I was so glad! Of course, it was awesome. Any swap with you is a dream. I think my daughter will steal the hot cocoa - she's a nut for Aero bars. I've been contentedly munching on my mellows all morning whilst eyeballing my candy. The chicken made my day..... I really admire your friend's work. I'd love to do that with my sculpture kids. And the yarn............ ohhhhh... the yarn. I gathered bits up so I could enjoy it at work, so forgive me if I forgot anything, it was all just wonderful. <3 <3 <3

Comment: H-holy smokes! This may be a swap for small granny squares, but this is NOT a small granny square swap! You- just- good grief, I lack the superlatives to adequately express how blown away I am by all of this! The squares! The gifts! Even the packaging! A heart is for above and beyond, but this is above and beyond by an order of MAGNITUDE, holy wow. I'm going to send you things back, because you have spoilt me spectacularly and that deserves retribution. Things have been tough for me lately but this makes me feel like someone really loves me, so thank you so, so much.

Comment: I received the package you sent today. After a week of rain and the likelihood of a hurricane this weekend on top of a sick child it was a burst of sunshine. I love the ornament. It's beautiful. Everything you included is so me. I was a history major in college and took every British history class I could and I drink hot tea daily. Thank you soooo much!

Comment: HOLY TAMOLE! You went so ridiculously above and beyond with your gorgeous package. The wrapping, the paper, the lovely card...... set such a lovely expectation for the inside. THEN, you exceeded my expectations with the cool, recycled bag (which i've been trying to do)! Then you added the great glasses holder and heart. I wish I could give you TWENTY HEARTS. :) Thank you so much.
