About Me

Thanks for taking the time to read my profile which I do update from time to time. (last updated on August 2nd)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I live in a southern beachside Perth suburb in Western Australia with my husband and our 14 year old daughter.

Our family also consists of our 2 dogs, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier named Luther (after Martin Luther King ~ a hero of mine) and a Cairn Terrier named Delta.

I've been a swap-bot member since January 2008 ~ I just wish I'd discovered it sooner :-)

I LOVE being outdoors ~ I feel right at home with my hands in the earth ~ gardening etc. and walking in the bush.

I LOVE:

♥ my husband & daughter of course!

  • kimmidolls & anything with them on

  • walking on the beach

  • or in the bush/forests

  • travelling ~ we go overseas at least once every 2 years.

  • talking,lol!

  • hot & cold mocha drinks

  • anything paisley

  • any thing to do with the outdoors ~ gardening, flowers, plants (I'm a horticulturalist!)

  • Buddhas - Thai Buddhas ~ but not the big bellied type. (we have many statues & pictures in & around our home)

  • Asian/Oriental themes

I love to potter about in the garden by myself.....and daydream at the same time!

GROUP I'VE BEGUN:-

If you're not already a member come and join us at Crafty Recyclers where we share great craft based recycling ideas!

AUSTRALIAN QUARANTINE !!

Being in Australia there are certain items that CAN NOT be received by me in the post due to strict quarantine rules.

Please do NOT include the following items in swaps as they will be seized by quarantine and destroyed.

  • seeds or other plant materials (pressed leaves etc.)

  • shells

  • soil & sand

  • tea with fruit pieces

  • incense

  • dried/pressed flowers

  • raw nuts/seeds

  • any animal products such as raw hide, feathers, teeth, bones etc.

  • any wooden items

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I GIVE MY WORD!

If I give my word to anything ~ it is MY WORD!!

I despise dishonesty; that is lying!!

I will post items before the final posting date, especially international to endeavour the fastest arrival time :)

Please remember that I'm in Australia so post may take more than 2 weeks to arrive if it's going overseas

One of my 1st swaps I sent was to someone who's now been suspended so that was a waste of effort & $$

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I WOULD LOVE

anything to do with my I LOVE list (see above) ♥♥ but most of all if you made me anything out of Liberty of London fabric I would treasure both you & the item for ever!!

♥ Anything with a paisley design on it(except fabric), anything Buddha (but not big bellied) and anything kimmidolls .**

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I RATE IMMEDIATELY

upon receiving a swap ~ so if I haven't rated you then I have not received from you yet!!

I'd appreciate the same courtesy from you ~ that way I know you've received from me!!

Also, not rating someone is rude!!

badge I reuse packaging.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

SWAPS

I've sent ~ they are waiting to be received & rated

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

sent, received BUT NEVER RATED

sent to manxkity on 3rd Nov.

Manxkity has contacted me once to say she had a pile of mail to open but has never got back to me, rated me (or others)
