About Me

Hi there,

Woo hoo school has started for me now, I am full-time student in one of my favorite pass times, weaving with flax. Will be student for next 3-4 years now coming out with a degree in Fine Arts.

Have moved into my new house. It has been an extremely exhausting time moving and I still haven't unpacked everything. I add to all this I became very ill during this time and still recovering from two asthma attacks back to back with a chest infection back to back. It is going to be a slow boat to china to get back to normal but I will participate in swaps as I feel able to. I live in a rural area and so don't have ready access to the postal service but I will endeavor to get my swaps out on time. If this is not the case I will let my partner know as we don't have pick ups on weekends anymore only Monday to Friday due to cut backs on postal services. I appreciate your patience with me.

If hosting swaps and get a little behind in assigning partners please PM me as I get caught up with my other responsibilities.

I am a mum with a son who is studying at Victoria University, My other family include a cat (Cleo and Katy - mother & daughter.), sadly Cleo passed away on 19 March 2015. I just have Katy now and glad to have her, she is a lovely companion. I also have Sugar a rescue budgie who was given to me.

I currently stay at home but will be looking for work soon, I love making handmade things and gifts as you cant beat something made with love.

I have decided to re-enter the study sector and will start my degree in 2016 so will use this year to get myself ready. In the end I would love to be there for the environment in conservation and preservation of the plants we use to weave for future generations.
