Updates

I just thought I would put a quick update to let people know that I have tested positive for covid. I hope everyone understands that I didnt know I had it when I signed up for swaps so they might end up being sent late. I hope thats okay as I need to isolate to not spread the virus on anymore

So my local post office is shut and they're only collecting mail from the post box every few days, I hope everyone will understand that I am posting Emma's swaps on time but it depends when the post box is emptied as to the date on the postmark, I'm so fed up of Covid now. Becky xoxo

I just thought I would put a quick update on. Emma is still in hospital but she decided to use her time to resend a few swaps. So if you receive something in the next few days its because I sent them out yesterday (4th november). I hope everyone is okay---Becky

Hopefully people will see this, I'm Becky Emmas sister, unfortunetly she was rushed into hospital a few days ago so if your swap isnt received I'll try and sort a new one out for you but please be patient, as I;m not as crafty as my sister, infact I've never done any crafting or sorting and the ones I did sort for her got her a bad rating!

I would like to apologise to anyone who isn't happy with their swaps they received I had set them all out for my sister to send for me while I tended to a family members funeral. I gave her my swapbot details and asked her to contact all my swap partners and send my swaps. All she had to do was place items in the correct envelopes write and send them on time. It appears she didn't. I'm sorry for the let down and will send replacement swaps to people who aren't happy with what she sent as it seems the items I set out weren't what she sent ☹🙁

If any of my swap partners have any NASA or space themed postcards I would love one for my little boy, he's become Space mad now 🙂 I would be really grateful

I have fallen in love with pretty napkins so if you have any spare and we are partnered I am willing to give them a loving home

I've had a few low ratings recently but please don't hold them against me, I am posting items, they're just taking a while to reach there destination, I will start asking for proof of postage so I can show it to my swap partners from now on.

So as of the 5th June I can only access the Post Office once a week as my local post office has shut, please be mindful of that as my mail might take a bit longer to get there. Although the UK can still send anywhere I was told we had a back log of mail as other countries aren't as open with their postal system as we are. All my swaps will be sent within a day or two of the deadline any more than that and I will contact my swap partner direct, I usually try to send them before the deadline anyway. I am trying to build my profile with ratings so I am sending usually around 10 swaps at a time. I love using SwapBot but I am scared of getting down rated due to the pandemic as a world we are dealing with, if you don't receive your item please let me know and I will send another one.

Stay Safe everyone, Take Care

About Me

Hi I'm Emma. I'm new to the site. I'm currently studying for my honours degree in computing, IT and design. I came across this website through another website. I thought now would be the best time to sign up and reach out due to us being in lockdown. I look forward to making new connections with people and sending and receiving interesting things. So yeah thats me. Oh and my profile name BamBam is my nickname :)

Favorite Crafts

I love to make paper crafts. I am currently making a junk journal. I like not being restricted and just letting myself make something rather than setting a goal. Whether this be a drawing or painting to using stamps and die cuts.

Favorite Movies

I love watching comedy and action films. One of my favourites is the Marvel universe. I enjoy the action and comedy and how they aren't really serious.

Favorite Television

I like watching true crime programmes. I could watch them all day everyday. I can also sit and watch documentaries and the soaps or watch kids programmes with my little boy

Likes and Dislikes

I like finding beauty where I can. I love photography and photo editing. My favourite colours are blue, teal and purple, but i also love the sky when the sun is just setting or rising. I love hearing the rain but not being in it. I love spending time with my family but hate saying goodbye at the end of the day. I love my dogs.

I love collecting stamps and old ephemera. I like stickers and washi tape. I love pens and pretty paper. I love reading with a nice cup of tea with a blanket. I always feel like I was born in the wrong era.

Now for my dislikes, I dont like generic notebooks, I like to have something different that isn't mass produced as such. I don't really like the colour red, I don't know why there's just something about it. I dislike ignorance if you want respect then show me respect don't think you deserve it. I don't like sticky notes as I've ended up with so many I will never use them all.

Favorite Music

I have a wide variety of favourite music, it depends on my mood and what I'm doing or who I'm with. If I'm studying I like listening to relaxing music as it helps me study, where as if I'm cleaning I like to listen to bands like Queen. If I'm on my own I can be known to listen to One Direction but I would never admit that to anyone I know haha

The struggle you’re in today is developing the strength you need for tomorrow.

NRGordon on Sep 25, 2020:

I hope things are getting better there. We were doing really well here (Maine people have the disposition for social distancing) until 65 selfish, ignorant people decided that a wedding reception would be a good idea. There are now over 140 confirmed cases, and one death, directly traced to that reception.

Quick and Easy Profile Hello #1

I hope you are feeling better! Sending you a virtual hug!

RebornDoll19 on Sep 24, 2020:

Hello! While reading over your profile I saw that you are interested in true crime stories! That is all I watch as well. I would love see how your junk journals turn out. I am trying to make then as well and am having a lot of fun collecting cool things to add. I loved reading over your profile and would love to swap with you sometime in the future! Many Blessings 💙

Quick and Easy Profile Hello #1

Hello 👋 I spy a fellow Brit and a fellow crafter 😊 Love nothing better than getting messy with some ink, paint, stencils, stamps etc myself. Oh and I’m right with you on the reading with a cup of tea and a blanket thing too....although to be honest it’s a cup of tea to accompany anything as far as I’m concerned. Hope you’re feeling better after your operation, take care Donna 😊🌸

Happy Thursday, hope you have an excellent day!
