About Me

I am a teacher in Melbourne, Australia. I have lived in several countries, and travelled to many more, but always come home to Australia. I am married to an amazing man, and we have an enormous sooky Lab Retriever (Dalek).

I blog prolifically, mostly about food. If you are interested in networking with other bloggers on Swap-Bot, watch out for our monthly blog hop swaps!

Favorite Crafts

I love knitting, a bit of embroidery and cross stitch, papercraft (particularly making ATCs) and journalling.

Favorite Books

Being a lit major when I was at uni, I love the classics (colonial and post-colonial), but also love pop culture icons such as Harry Potter and Winnie Saloman's world of Facetime. I also love novels written in epistolary format. Favourite authors of multiple books I've enjoyed include Robert G. Barrett, Coerte Felske, Beverley Lewis, William Gibson, Jacqueline Carey, and John Marsden.

Favorite Music

I listen to virtually anything - my most recent loves include Straight No Chaser, Nightwish, Mika, Owl City, Train and Flight of the Conchords, 2Cellos, PSY, the Wondergirls, and Kalafina.

Knowledge Journal Swap

PostSecret ATC Swap

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!

My Loves

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), sarees, 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.

Stuff I'm not so fond of

Patchouli, mice, rats, roaches, rainy days, cats and peanuts (allergies, though trace nuts are ok).

Comment: I have decided to make some mini quilts for the 'Grand-fur-babies' in my life. When I was back in MN this June, my younger Son's female cat had claimed a small wallhanging I sent him. She was so cute as she rolled herself into it!

Comment: Thanks for stopping by! I find I read a lot at 2 times: right before bed, and at work. I have the Kindle and nook apps on my tablet, so I have plenty of books available. I also have a lot of time at work where I can listen and not be bothered, so an audible subscription is really useful for me. Also, as far as your kiln question goes, I have my own kiln. It's too much of a drive to find a studio I can use, so a kiln was a better option for me.

Hi Ang! Just wanted to let you know I posted on your blog post as linda for the Blog Hop swap. Just want to wish you a fast recovery again as well :) Take care! linda

I am one of your partners for BLOG HOP JULY ROUNDUP. I am making this entry because I do not use my birth name for Swap bot and the reply function only allowed me to do that on your blog.

Recovery can be a bitch! You have written an authentic account of your experience that is clear, concise, and has a touch of humor to it. I hope you continue to heal and that this surgery remains successful. Thank you for sharing such an intimate part of your life. You make the world a better place just by being yourself
