About Me


Hi everyone! My name is Annabelle and I am 31 years old. I live in Australia!

I love cooking, food, crafts and discovering new things! Purple is my favourite colour! I love dogs and animals and nature! I write my own poetry and stories as well. I love meditation and fitness and mindfulness is very important to me. I am also addicted to Pinterest!

I do not have any allergies.

I have a likes/wishlist and dislike list below - however please note that I am very open to trying new things, so don't feel that you HAVE to send something from my likes/wishlist. Just as long as it is not one of my dislikes of course!


Do not hesitate to send me a PM for any queries, I am more than happy to listen and act in a fair manner! I really appreciate communication so don't be shy if you have any issues with receiving the item or the swap itself! Please do not rate down without communicating first.

I send all of my swaps with full tracking (meaning the first scan - done in front of me at the Post Office - to the โ€˜deliveredโ€™ scan).

As I can see when the package has been delivered, I can also see how long it takes from when youโ€™ve received the package to when I receive a rating. I truly hope others will rate in a timely manner. Please also check that you have hit โ€˜save ratingsโ€™ when leaving a rating as it wonโ€™t go through if you donโ€™t AND check my profile page to make sure the rating has submitted. Thank you so much and thank you for being my partner!!

I rate all of my swaps immediately after opening (within 24 hours of receiving the swap in my mailbox or front door) and I pledge that I will continue this.

Thank you so much to everyone who has sent me a swap or RAK - I have truly loved them all! I truly appreciate the time and effort you have put into sending me something through the mail!

Favorite Music

I listen to a wide range of music - I am always up for discovering new music.

Favorite Books

Any romance novels, cookbooks and magazines (beauty, food, health, meditation/mindfulness). I really love writing poems and stories. I have really been interested in journal swaps - I feel like writing and being creative this way is a form of meditation. I love filling up an empty journal!

Favorite Movies

I am not a big movie buff, but I enjoy any romance or comedy movies.

Favorite Television

I am not a big television watcher - I prefer watching YouTube clips about food, nature, crafts or anything else that catches my eye!

Favorite Crafts

I am always up to creating any crafts, but I actively make dreamcatchers and various types of journals. I also make pocket letters and flipbooks. I really enjoy paper crafts!


  • Anything floral (obsessed! I LOVE flowers).

  • Anything animal themed, especially dogs. I like turtles as well.

  • Anything handmade (especially Pocket Letters, Flipbooks and Tag Flips).

  • Dreamcatchers.

  • Anything that is purple.

  • Food products (exceptions listed in dislikes below). I enjoy trying foreign food products. Please make sure that any food products are in their original packaging. I like savoury / sweet / sour food items. I also don't mind receiving healthy snacks or snacks that are vegetarian / vegan. However, I do not have any dietary requirements, so I am very relaxed and willing to try pretty much anything!

  • Chocolates and candy/lollies.

  • Coffee sachets.

  • Hot chocolate sachets/mixes.

  • Tea (please only send plain green or matcha tea, plain black tea, plain white tea, chocolate tea, caramel / salted caramel tea, mango tea, lemon / lemon and honey tea, apple tea, watermelon tea, lime tea, peach tea or China rose tea).

  • Recipes and food magazines from around the world.

  • Kitchen accessories.

  • Anything with a cupcakes theme!

  • Maggie Holmes products.

  • Martha Stewart products.

  • Tim Holtz products.

  • Steampunk products.

  • Fashion items such as jewellery (particularly earrings for pierced ears and anklets), clothes, scarves and makeup (I love red and pink lipsticks). I also love scented body oils.

  • Craft items/stationary - stickers, pretty coloured paper, origami paper, card stock, embellishments, diecuts, journal cards, letter sets, wooden stamps, acrylic stamps, any other stamps etc.

  • Tombow and Copic markers.

  • Enamel pins.

  • DIY kits.

  • Items that a primary (elementary) teacher could use in the classroom (as I am a teacher). I know a lot of people write on their profile that they don't want teacher stickers, but feel free to send them to me! All I ask is that they are good quality. The students I teach are obsessed with scented stickers so if you could get them, that would be amazing!

  • Positive quotes and inspirations, poetry.

  • Beautiful pictures.

  • Astrology (my Zodiac/Sun sign is Pisces, Moon sign is Libra, Ascendant/Rising sign is Pisces).

  • Tarot / Oracle card pack.

  • Amethyst crystal.

  • Souvenirs from the country you live in (postcards, maxicards, keyrings, snowglobes, etc.).

  • Any meditation or relaxation items (for example, face masks, eye masks, hand masks, foot masks, self-care books, magazines, etc).

  • Beach/nautical/island/tropical/water themed items.

  • Forest/nature themed items.

  • Bicycles and parks.

  • Health and fitness products. I love exercising, eating well and good health for my body, mind and spirit, so anything related to those would be fantastic!

  • Outer space/astronomy themed items - I am obsessed with the stars, the moon and planets, so beautiful. Anything with a star chart on it would be awesome to receive!

  • Cute stress balls/squishys.

  • Scented or unscented candles.

  • Cute and nice smelling hand sanitizers (can never have enough of them especially as a teacher!).

  • Coffee mugs with interesting/fun designs and quotes

  • Washi tape (either full rolls or samples).

Dislikes/Unneeded Items

  • Licorice or anise flavoured items.

  • Food that is mint flavoured (exception: mint flavoured chocolate is amazing!).

  • Candied ginger or any other ginger flavoured product.

  • Sultanas and raisins.

  • Food products that contain alcohol (as I do not consume alcohol).

  • Marzipan.

  • Celery.

  • Any tea not mentioned in my likes/wishlist above. I highly dislike Herbal tea, Chai tea and Earl Grey tea.

  • Food or makeup products that are past their expiration date, use by date or best before date.

  • Nail polish or any other nail products.

  • Any bath products.

  • Used products and dirty products.

  • Anything with a very strong smell, as it makes me feel unwell.

Comment: Wow Annabelle! Youโ€™ve done it again! Everything is beautiful! I got my box of goodies yesterday. The box is decorated so nicely! I love the beautiful embellishments that you made and the stunning pocket letter! The sparkly toile really sets it off. The mermaid keychain is so pretty! When I get my craft room done sheโ€™s going to be in a special place! I love her and the cute, sparkly, shower cap! Itโ€™s funny because Iโ€™ve been wanting a new shower cap...lolol. The Jaffa cakes are so good and just happen to be one of my youngest sonโ€™s favorite snacks from the U.K. so Iโ€™ve had to hide them after sharing a few. Lol! The Cadburyโ€™s Caramello Koala is a new one for me. I havenโ€™t eaten it yet, but it looks good. Thank you for all of the button badges, stickers, and the wonderful, ephemera pack! Itโ€™s so cool to get stuff from another country. Thank you for your lovely letter too. I owe you one for that! Iโ€™ll try to write soon. Oh, and for that one embellishment that you made with your fuse tool...oh my, the sequins and glitter and beads inside look just like waves when I turn it! That is SO cool! I am seriously hoarding that! Lol! Anyway, thank you for another perfect swap! Iโ€™m game for another one whenever you are!!! Take care dear friend!
Response: Hi Robin! Oh, I am so glad you loved everything! I really enjoyed creating this box swap for you. Yes, I was really happy with the way the Mermaid shaker embellishment turned out! I love playing around with my fuse tool. Enjoy everything! We will definitely do another swap soon! Take care my friend! Annabelle xoxoxo

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful PL and all the lovely extras! So many! Especially love all the stickers! Thank you one again! ๐Ÿ’•
Response: You are very welcome, Aparna! Enjoy all of it! Annabelle xoxoxo
Comment: Oh my goodness, Annabelle! This was such an awesome swap from you! I love everything!!!! The embellishment box is beautiful! I love the way you decorated it! Where did you get the gold letters for my name? Those are cool. I love the stamp sheets and the Dachshund page flags and the tea and the stickers and all of the goodies in the embellishment box and well, everything including the inside of the box. Is that wrapping paper that you used or something else? I admit that I had to dig around and play a bit in the sequins and crinkle paper inside...such fun! I am happy that you shared some of that pompom trim and the felt flowers. Iโ€™ve never seen them around here. I love the variety of embellishment pieces and oh, canโ€™t forget the cute earrings...I didnโ€™t even THINK of including something like that! I canโ€™t wait to try out the teas especially the dark chocolate, black one. Yum! Thank you so much for spoiling me and brightening a rather miserable time in my life! Iโ€™ve have enjoyed and been so excited about my first BIG swap! Thank you so much! Merry Christmas!
Response: Hi Robin, I am delighted that you loved everything that I sent you! I had so much fun putting this swap together for you. The gold letters are DIY shop - gold letter stickers number 107 from American Crafts. For the inside of the box, I used paper from a 12x12 paper pad called 'Daydreamer' made by CreativePL. I really hope that you enjoy using everything! Merry Christmas to you too! Annabelle xoxoxo
