I am a freelance journalist, proofreader and long time blogger, living in Cardiff, Wales, with my wonderful hubby, Jon, and our 2 baby bunnies, Jasper and Delilah! I love sending and receiving mail so had to sign up when I found the site through another blogger. I'm very excited to start participating! And look forward to sending and receiving some fun mail from you all. Personally I'm interested in Fashion, photography, cooking, reading, films, music, learning about other cultures and just having fun in life.
I'm an eclectic gal and will listen to pretty much anything. From Dolly Parton to Meatloaf and Tom Jones, Timberland to Shakira and Lady Gaga, Classical to classic rock and musicals, Rammstein to Coldplay and The Killers.
Seriously my husbands and mines combined music collection has to be seen to be believed, its such a weird mix!
I am a huge reader, but nothing historical or classical! (except the odd Shakespear and Chaucer! I know weird!) I love a good thriller or crime novel, the odd bit of Sci Fi or Fantasy - especially Pratchett! Romance in small doses, and currently loving dystopian teen novels. You can check me out on Goodreads http://www.goodreads.com/user/show/4242298-chantele
Again this is another thing me and my hubby have a slight obsession with. We are reknown by family and friends for our insanely large DVD and Blue Ray Collection - well over 800, so they often think of us as their own version of Blockbusters! lol!
We will watch most things but really love a good action/thriller. I love musicals too so anything girly like that is my cup of tea. Favourite film for me is always hard because there are so many, but 'In pursuit of happyness, the dark night, sound of music, mary poppins, sister act, 9 to 5, first wives club, thomas crown affair and harry potter are probably top of my list at the moment - we even had our tables named after films at our wedding!
Ive just started making ATC cards and enjoying my own simpler version of scrap/smash booking!
Plus I love to cook, is that a craft? I think it is!
I used to make jewellery and cards but sadly time no longer permits for that.
When it comes to post cards or cards I like anything, I'm really not fussy. Not really interested in seasonal cards though or religious ones. Althought I love churches/temples so religious buildings would be ok.
I really love vintage photography - mainly fashion but other kinds to, so any PC with that on would be awesome. Even if I am signed up to a 'tourist PC' swap if you have a fashion or vintage style card I would love it for my collection!
Stuff for swaps I like paper craft so anything related to that. I'm enjoying making ATC cards so stuff I can use on them. And Smashbook stuff! Especially Washi tape as its hard to get in the UK. People in the US get much nicer paper craft stuff than we do in the UK so any fun, pretty, vintage, retro crafty stuff!
I love fashion lots! So fun or different jewellery, just not Japanese Lolita stuff, that's not me. I like vintage or unusual stuff, check my blog for ideas. I do like cute kawaii, kitchy paper craft items though. I just dont wear them. Anything bunny related! I love bunnies on everything! Tea! What British person doesn't like tea! I don't like fruit, peppermint or red bush though. Sweets or candy from your country. Pretty hair clips or slides. Or hair bands and ties. Thin scarves are a passion to. I have a massive thing for pin badges from around the world and am currently working on filling a whole pin board. I collect foreign fashion magazines, fashion images speak for them selves even if I cant read the magazine!
I like lots of other stuff too, so I'm not too fussy just hope that gives some ideas.
Ok like I said im not too fussy but I don't like Japanese Lolita or kawaii jewellery. No kids plastic beads or rings please. But I do like Kawaii/kitchy paper craft stuff Nothing cat related, I'm just not a fan of cats sorry. But I love dogs! No make up as I don't wear a lot and I have more than enough No Magnets of keychains please, I have enough of both. No hot chocolate - I cant stand it! No rubbers (erasers!) or pencils - I don't mind fun pens but I have little need for rubbers, sharpeners or pencils. Nothing sports related it just doesn't interest me I think that's all really. Not really into Halloween or seasonal stuff in general Thank you!!
I may be new but I promise I always post. The British post office can be rubbish sometimes, so if you don't receive something please message me first before leaving a rating and I will try to find it or send you another one.
I am happy to do private penpal swaps too! I really love swapping and post cards so would love a few new penpals!
Happy posting and hope to get to know some of you soon.
