I ALWAYS send out my swaps & NEVER flake, so if you are expecting a package from me and it doesn't come, please email me and I will strive to resolve it. I have also hosted plenty of swaps since joining SWAP BOT way back in 2008 (check out my 'host feedback' -it's under the star symbol). If you are a member of a swap which I am hosting , and have any queries please feel free to email me with them & I will gladly help.

About Me

I just joined the 40's club not too long ago. Took a break from swapping but am back with a vengeance! I have an 11 year old son and a great husband, both who keep me sane. I recently overcame cancer and went back to work after one year. I work in my local university. I have many hobbies but crafting is my favourite! I first got into it 10 years ago when my mother in law introduced me to card-making! And I have never looked back!

I absolutely LOVE:

Kawaii stuff, roller ball pens (purple ink), bath goodies, Smencils, anything from France or French - related, Chinese green tea (not Japanese - I dislike the stuff), cute stationery, esp Korean kind eg. Barunson etc.., costume jewellery, anything green or purple, calming soothing music (Chinese bamboo flute music), trying out new things, stickers, keyrings, nik naks, collectable keychains etc..

I absolutely DISLIKE:

Smoking, wars/crime, violence, rude people, pollution, loud noise, Japanese green tea, aniseed flavoured things and insects.

Favorite Crafts

In the past I have dabbled in cardmaking, mosaics, papier mache, jewellery making, sewing, knitting etc..more recently have been making my own lip balms and soap.

Favorite Music

Anything by Prudence Liew, Tarcy Su, T'Pau, Oasis, Abba, Britney Spears, Helene Segara, and Canti Lau.

80's music.

I love pop, some dance, some indie music! And Cantopop! And most chart stuff too!

Favorite Books

Autobiographies of my fave. celebrities, non fiction in general, such as travel books, self help and factual books...how to guides etc..

I dont read fiction at all.

pcmiminini rated for Rainy day swap ☔ on Feb 19, 2017
Comment: Thank you for the extraordinarily lovely swap! If I ever have a lack of things to do, I know exactly what to pull out :) The journal is so cute! I used to have one just like that - it brings back nice memories. The sushi in the sushi cookbook is mouthwateringly tasty looking. Even if I don't make the sushi, they are so nice to look at. Tomorrow I will play the Chinese Folk Music. I'm so looking forward to it! This is probably the best swap I have ever received.
Response: Glad that you liked everything
