About Me

Hi, i'm Anne-Marie!

Wow, where to start! I'm in my early 30's, live with my partner John and our fur-baby (cat) Chaos. Mainly here to swap crafts and supplies, with the odd foodie type swap :)

I love sending and receiving mail from overseas! I wish more swaps were international. :)

My favourite colours are yellow and purple. I love love brightly coloured things.

I am a huge animal lover and advocate against animal cruelty.

I love - stamps, ink, washi tape, meerkats, cute and funky earrings, stationary, embellishment stickers and scrapbooking supplies... if its cute and crafty i'll probably love it!

Food wise - I prefer milk chocolate to dark chocolate (but either is fine!), I love fruity flavours, my favourites being raspberry, strawberry and pineapple. I enjoy trying coffee and hot chocolates from different countries - I love trying new flavours! Something that is unique to your country is always welcomed!

I don't eat wheat or grains, I dislike liquorice, mushroom and banana flavoured anything!

I was sent some Maltesers Hot Chocolate once from the UK which was amazingly delicious! We don't have that here so if anyone wants to do a private swap for a box let me know :)

I'm collecting magnets at the moment to make my fridge look happy and well-traveled, so if anyone wants to swap touristy magnets, message me! :)

I prefer not to receive any religious items, everyone has their own beliefs and I respect all religions.

I live all the way in New Zealand - so when I send a swap it might take a few weeks to arrive! I mark sent when I have put it in the postbox, or if its a package, sent it at the post shop! They only pick up from the postbox Monday to Friday, and we are also in a different timezone (ahead by a day!), so the send date may be different to the date on the envelope - I try and get my swaps away well before the deadline, but if you have any issues with the send date let me know!

I don't like marking down for a swap if you have sent it, if you are sending a bit later then the deadline just let me know - life happens! :)

Please let me know if you don't receive your items from me! Sometimes things go for a wander... its not generally an issue as our post seems to be quite good, but it has happened a couple of times now... and one package arrived 8 months after I sent it! I'd rather re-send then leave anyone unhappy!

Favorite Books

Game of Thrones series, Harry Potter, any good fantasy book :)

Favorite Television

Game of Thrones, Big Bang Theory, Greys Anatomy, Private Practice, Vampire Diaries, True Blood, Drop Dead Diva, The Mentalist

Favorite Crafts

I make little polymer clay goodies! I also love paper craft, scrapbooking, painting... I generally try and dabble in most things.

Comment: Got the swap today! Thank you so much for the ATC!! I love it. I almost cried lol. The potion bottles are the cutest! Half the Felix Felicis leaked, but the Gillyweed was ok. Nothing was ruined through, so it wasn't that big of a deal. <3 <3
Response: Aww i'm sorry about that! I thought I had sealed them well :( Glad you liked them x

Response: Aww thanks, glad you liked her... and yeah, coasters lol - I like to use them mainly because they keep the envelope from bending, and they're cute as well :)

Comment: Thank you for the giant bags of candy! It will probably take me a year to eat it all. I haven't tried the fudge yet, but I did hide it from my boyfriend so he doesn't get into it. :)

Comment: It arrived and Where do I start?? The fudge...o the fudge. My daughter gave me a nibble then disappeared with the rest and a large glass of milk with husband in hot pursuit. The Eskimos are delightful but we all feel vaguely guilty biting off their heads. We have encountered the pop-rock white chocolate and we LOVE it. We decided to resist opening the others (until tomorrow....maybe) but I can't wait to try the spicy chocolate. All in all, one of the best swaps we've ever had. Thank You!!! Update: the spicy chocolate didn't make it until tomorrow. O that chocolate was GOOD, but my daughter was glad she had that glass of milk.
Response: haha I love this!! I'm so glad you liked the package :) i've been trying to replicate that fudge at home with no success as yet.. I will keep trying because its amazing!

Comment: Thanks for the really nice ATC. Thanks too for the old postcard. It's starting to get hot here, summer coming on. I love to make the quilt tops. My hands aren't up to hand quilting. Try it, you may like it.
