Favorite Crafts

i like to make nice things out of stuff that has been thrown away, a favourite of mine being old jam jars decorated with paint and cut outs from old magazines.

i like to knit, a lot.

and crochet, often.

and im just getting to grips with my sewing machine.

About Me

Im a 22 year old fundraiser for various charities in Glasgow, Scotland.

Letterwise im up for talking about anything, absolutely anything, and i write really long ones because i like getting them :D

What i like

To be honest im fairly easy to please. My favourite physical things are

  • floral or bird print

  • things that are/look old

  • stuff that other people think is utter crap

  • wool

  • PVC things

  • fruit/veg print

  • woodland critters

  • But to be truthful id be happy no matter what you sent me!

If i had to be totally specific about what i would like to get it would most likely be:

a postcard from your area

a mix cd

retro knitting patterns

anything victoriana

anything floral

or maybe even your favourite recipe





cross stitch pictures


boiled sweets

paper cake cases

glass bottles

metal tins or wooden boxes

hair slides


knitting/crochet needles

craft books

stationary (pens/paper/envies)

perfume bottles

knitted emblems/granny squares

kitchen utensils

old books

film cameras/film


colours: i go mad for greens of any hue, i like orange and purple too. but a good mix of any colours will make me happy :D

Favorite Music

I play the violin so i guess to an extent that via osmosis i like traditional scottish music, i also love red hot chilli peppers, anything from th 80's, gogo bordello, tinie tempah, anything from the sixties

Favorite Books

I love Ian Banks, Joanne Harris, Charlotte Bronte and any books on crafts.

Favourite food

candywise, dried fruit is my candy! especially dried mango, yum :D other than that i love popping candy and bubble gum: kids stuff :P

Comment: Thanks so much for the great bag of bird goodies! I love everything, especially the adorable plate! Thanks again :-)
Comment: Hi there! Thank you so much for the awesome box! I was a little puzzled when it first arrived - tried to figure why I appeared to have a Starburst box. But, anyway, thank you so much for all the lovely little things. I'll certainly pass on the book and DVD for someone else to enjoy as you requested - I'm a member of bookmooch and swapshop. The notebook is lovely, the stickers are beautiful and I adore the heart pins. Thank you so much for a great package.

Comment: Thank you so much! You managed to send me a novel by Agatha Christie that I don´t have. Congratulations! That´s not easy. ^^ And I´ll try to read the French book. Sound interresting. Be sure that your books will travel on - to friends or other booklovers. I share my books and I´m also a member of swap-bot.

Hello there!

I am your partner for the QUICK POSTCARD swap, so I was looking on your profile to choose the right cards.

BUT, while reading your profile, I keep on thinking: 'wow! i could send her this, and this, and that!' So actually I made already a whole parcel. But since that isn't really the intention, I'll just send you the cards and I really hope we can do a private swap.

Is it allowed if I send you some extra's too? I am not sure that is ok? Sometimes I read you should stick to the swap critera.

So I will send you just the postcards now and if you like, i will send later a box with nice things?

I would love to send you all the rest but it isn't ok to ignore the swapcriteria and i don't want someone to be angry.

So if you like to have a private swap too?? :D

Sorry for the bad English :( :(

dardarbinx on May 16, 2011:

Hi Lindsay!!!! OMIGOD, you ARE an absolute Angel!!!!! Thank you so very much for sending me a replacement package after that J.Hibbs guy flaked out on me....How rude was that??? He did not only flake out on me, but he was banned from swap bot! So if you ever need a reference for anything regarding swapping, you just let me know, ok? Thanks so much again! Cheers dardarbinx!!!
