About Me

I'm a student Mental Health Nurse and Zinester. I enjoy books and spending forever in libraries and book stores. I'm also obsessed with stationery and organising!

I love pens in an array of wonderful colours, pretty prints and illustrations, coffee and cake.

I definitely appreciate anything to help with my organizing habit.

I like fiction paperbacks with weird stories and fiction or non-fiction that's mental health related.

Favourite Things

alpacas, rats, apples, post-its, notebooks & journals, city photographs, bookplates, bookmarks, yarn, squared paper, books, zines, bobby pins, libraries, lip balm, index cards, sweets, fineline pens, maps, postcards, magazines, geometric prints, coffee, lettersets, bento, apple and cinnamon flavours.

Favourite Colours

I like bright colours, post box red, kelly green, electric blue...

Favorite Crafts

Knitting, Cross-Stitch, Bookbinding.

Favorite Music

Riot grrl and rock n roll!

Favourite Authors

Plath, Styron, Murakami, Huxley, Orwell, Woolf...

Comment: Thank you so much for the zine! Don't worry about it being depressing (I didn't think it was, I thought it was honest). I had a bout of it this past year and it was not fun. On the back of your zine, you mention that you like letters so I will try to get one out to you this month. It may take me a few weeks since I'm swamped the next couple of weeks, but I would like to write :) Thank you so much for the extras! It was very thoughtful of you to send them :)

Comment: Bettie, what a terrific surprise I got when I opened the parcel from you today! What a terrific book! And the book labels and the Shhhh bookmark - fantastic! Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness! (I took the package to my neighbor who is British and who told me you live in the lake district which she knows well-she also agreed to show me her pics of the area soon). Thank you so very, very, much!

I had to travel out of town, so I haven't been able to check my mail. According to my roommates I've accumulated quite a bit, so hopefully I'll be able to look at everything this weekend. Sorry to worry you.

Hi Bettie, This will be a fun swap. Thank you for thinking of it. I do like libraries, etc. On the page for the swap in the discussion I have added a web page that has a catalog card generator. Hope some of the swappees will be able to use that. Will be looking forward to this swap. Stmpnmnga
