About Me

I was born and raised in Melbourne, Australia, and now live in Portland, Oregon, USA.

love


Some things I love to receive through swaps:

  • Top of my list is everyday items from other countries, like supermarket flyers, take-out food menus, train/bus maps, train tickets, and coins.

  • Tea! I love different types of black and fruit tea. My latest favorite is blueberry tea, which I received in a swap. I'm not a huge fan of green tea, unless it's flavored in some way. No loose teas please.

  • Drink mixes

  • Interesting papers, embellishments, and anything else that can be used for collage.

  • Miniature things

  • Rubber stamps (preferably abstract shapes)

  • Small notebooks with covers (the kind that can get tossed it a bag and not get messed up)

  • Socks in a largish size, average length (ie. not knee high or really short)

  • Coasters (I don't own any but would like one nice set)

Favorite Books

Hungry Planet & Material World (by Peter Menzel), 84 Charing Cross Road, Sherlock Holmes, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, sci-fi (especially post-apocalyptic fiction).

Favorite Television

Survivorman, 1900's House (and other BBC/PBS documentaries in the same vein), Hamish Macbeth, Blackadder, The Goodies. I also love listening to BBC radio over the net...especially "I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue" and "Just a Minute".

Favorite Music

Jethro Tull, Simon and Garfunkel, Kate Bush, Pink Floyd, Nick Drake Γ’β„’Βͺ Γ’β„’Βͺ Γ’β„’Βͺ

Favorite Crafts

Hand-carved stamps, ATC's, collage...and anything else involving paper or ink!

Rosemary, your package arrived today! It took so long because of a customs strike over here... But it got here safely! I love everything, thank you so so so much! The keychain is awesome, I'll put it along with my keys! And the postcard, wow! I also love the tea, I'm gonna try it tonight!

Thank you again for swapping!

Lots of love,
Carolina

Thank you for the flyers! They arrived today! It's all so much cheaper than here...And yes, we do have coupons, but not regularly. It's only sometimes.Don't know if you received my flyers yet. I sent them some time ago.Thanks again!

Carolina on Apr 24, 2008:

Hi Rosemary!

No it hasn't arrived yet, but I'm starting to think there's a problem with my PO. I have talked to my postofficer already to see if I things show up, because yours isn't the only package which hasn't arrived. Please don't send another one, I don't tihnk it's fair since I believe the problem is with my PO! I'll keep you informed!

Lots of love,
Carolina

Carolina on Apr 20, 2008:

Hey there! I have added you on AIM, I'm new to it so I don't know if I did it right...

Hope to talk to you soon! :D

xoxo,
Carolina

hey! thanks for digging the hair :) its actually more magenta now, but i have to say i'm missing the fairy floss pink colour.

lucky you in NYC! Do you miss melbourne?

Zefaniya on Apr 18, 2008:

Thanks :)

Carolina on Apr 16, 2008:

I'm so glad they got to you safely! :) And glad you liked everything too.

Yours has not arrived yet, I'll let you know as soon as I receive it!

Rosemary, I'm thinking of moving to NYC to go to business school in a few years (need to think about these things in advance, lol!). If you don't mind, could we have a little chat one of these days about it? I don't know NY, but I'm spending Christmas there this year (hopefully!). Anyways, my GoogleTalk is carolguedes. Feel free to add me! Thanks!

Lots of love,
Carolina

Carolina on Mar 28, 2008:

Hope you get them soon! Let me know... :)
