I screwed up big time and have a major swap to finish before I sign up to anything else. I am working to rectify this, but as it's 100 days of Journalling and I'm starting anew, it might take a while.
I currently split my time between Albury and Melbourne as I have met a beautiful caring man who has changed my life =)
I'm a graduate student in Australia. I'm studying teaching after four years of teaching informally in Japan, Korea and as a governess in rural Australia.
I love knitting, a bit of embroidery and cross stitch, papercraft (particularly making ATCs) and journalling. I also like face and body painting.
I like a lot of classics and pseudo-fiction (things like Picnic at Hanging Rock and Rose Red)... I also really like light non-fiction such as biographies, autobiographies and books along the same lines as "Freakonomics", "How To Dunk A Donut" and "On Giants' Shoulders". I love NaNoWriMo and creating my own books for that as well as copyediting others'. I have developed a total thing for the Heartsong books and also Robert G. Barrett's Les Norton series.
I listen to virtually anything - my most recent loves include Straight No Chaser (all the groups, past and present, oh if only polygamy were legal - all ten of them are yummy in the extreme), Nightwish (both Tarja and Annette), singles from really terrible mainstream pop groups, Mika, Owl City, Train and Flight of the Conchords.

I'm so lucky! Thanks to djmom11 who angelled my Theme A Day journals! There was a lot of work to be done for them so I feel very special that she chose to angel such a big project for me!
Guinea pigs, pound puppies, hedgehogs, dachsunds, St. Bernards, pugs, pink, white, black, silver, tangerine orange, butter yellow, cookie cutters, papercraft scraps, writing writing and more writing, being a moderator on the LJ holiday_wishes community, fabric scraps, fibre scraps, yarn, buttons), the scents of vanilla, strawberry, sandalwood, musk, men's cologne and fresh-baked cookies. My favourite ATCs are ones incoporating ephemera or stamping and layers of different materials.
Patchouli, mice, rats, roaches, rainy days, cats and peanuts (allergies, though trace nuts are ok).
