About Me

COVID-19 UPDATE Hello lovelies, I thought I better update because as I’ve come to learn some of my swaps haven’t yet reached my partners. Ones that were sent throughout New Zealand’s Lockdown. Unfortunately I wasn’t to realise that due to our borders being closed it limited severely how much mail went out of NZ. And is now still being effected. I have also recently learned that NZ will no longer have 29 different countries sending mail by air freight but rather by sea. So mail from different places may take upto 1-2 months to reach me here in New Zealand depending on where in the world you are.

Sending for me as the option has now been open but with restrictions if it’s a parcel I can only send via express courier to most countries which is rather expensive so I will be sticking to flatmail as most possible. Other countries I can send to via normal post but will be severely delayed :-(.

This is a horrible time for us as snailmailers and I apologise if things are taking so long already.

Air hugs Amy.

Hey there beautiful soul,

I'm Amy and welcome to my swapbot haven.

Im a 30 year old craftaholic. As well as a ffurr Mama to 2 gorgeous kitty's Norty and Mr Blue both tabbys and full of attitude and I love it. Wifey to an incredible man who loves to see the smile I have on my face whenever I'm creating or crafting up a storm who while out shopping for himself occasionally will bring me home crafty treats blessed with an incredible man he also enjoys getting in on opening my incoming Happymail to see if he's been kindly gifted something 😂.

I've been part of the snailmail world since about November 2014 but I've been crafting since I was a child. I now work in an amazing organisation where I am the lead facilitator for the Create programme where I get to for a job and for fun teach woman to be creative I just love it.

I'm a tad bit crazy over soft shades of pink I can't help myself it's just so beautiful. Baby Pinks, Rose Pinks, powder pink, dusty Pinks, candyfloss Pinks, bubbly gum Pinks see and throw that in the mix with some white and gold and a bit of vintage shabby chic flare and you my dear friend will own my heart 😉.

Every now and again if we end up swapping letters I may go on about my beautiful family my sisters, brothers and my beautiful nieces and gorgeous nephews I'm big on family you see.

Anyways that's enough about me I hope that however we cross paths whether it be in mail or by pretty Tagflips or whatever swap it maybe that you enjoy because I feel that one should always enjoy and have fun being wonderfully creative 😘.

Till next time Ciao my love

Future Swaps ill be hosting

As some may know my friend Zakka @inthewoods have started a monthly swap that will go on where we are swapping through the colours of the rainbow.

So below is a timeline of when the next ones will be October - Red Themed Happymail November - Orange Themed Happymail December - Yellow Themed Happymail January - Green Themed Happymail February - Blue Themed Happymail March - Indigo Themed Happymail April - Violet Themed Happymail May - I want to end the rainbow off with a Sunshine and Clouds themed swap what goes better with rainbows than abit of sunshine, puffy white clouds and some raindrops.

If your interested make sure to check them out. Each signup will be opened from the last week of the previous month until the 1st of the month it's allocated for.

My rating requirements allow newbies with well filled in profiles, and swappers that have had low ratings but explanations for those ratings will be allowed to. Don't try to tell me to change my ratings this is my swaps.

Swaps and Ratings...

I'm big on creating beautiful pieces of mail so if you receive something from me that is substandard please don't be shy to let me know i am more than willing to fix it. I have yet to experience mail not arriving however I do know it takes a wee while. As I'm situated all the way in New Zealand. So I try to send earlier than the deadline date.

I am very big on communication so I will occasionally message to check if the mail has arrived if I haven't received a response or rating 2 weeks after the deadline date just to check on things. And vice versa please feel free to contact me if you haven't received anything.

I will rate as soon as your mail/swaps arrive in my mailbox. I tend to collect open and then jump online and rate. And will do that every time.

Date on swaps

Here in New Zealand lovelies depending on where you live depends on the days that the mailbox is emptied. I click sent as soon as I've delivered my mail to either the post shop or the postbox. I apologise if the date is different to the date I've selected sent. I know this is a huge problem here on swapbot. So just wanted to let you know in advance not that I've had anyone complain about my mail to date.

Comment: Although i have not received my package and it got lost due to covid-19, the communication has been awesome and the fact that you are willing to remake one and send it to me again is really cool, I totally recommend doing swaps with this gorgeous lady, she’s amazing! Keep up the good work chick
Response: Thankyou so much chicky I will have your swap on its way to you next week. I’m rather appalled at the amount of packages and mail that has gone missing due to COVID. I appreciate our mail deliverers and all the hard work but it makes you wonder where all the lost mail has gone.
