I am taking a break from swapping to due some family issues. I am not in any active swaps at the moment and not checking my profile regularly.
I am more than happy to resend if you let me know that you haven't received your swap from me - This still stands, but I would ask that you email me directly if possible (firstname.lastname@example.org) as my Swap-bot inbox is flooded with group messages and I just don't always see PMs'.
If the original ever does turn up eventually just pay it forward :)
BEHIND on ratings. That is my bad. I will get there eventually....
Now, about me:
I am a happily married, child free, woman in my late 30's living in domestic bliss in Australian suburbia.
I have a job that I really enjoy, doing data warehousing and analysis (I know, NOT everyone's cup of tea!) for a Not-For-Profit organisation providing mental health support services.
I'm generally a happy person, a bit lazy and love love love domestic life - gardening, cooking, growing food and preserving it, making cheese, crafting...anything for the home done at home. I even quite like housework.
I have Autism (at the Aspie end of things), Social Anxiety and Generalised Anxiety - so I tend to be a real homebody. I enjoy pen palling and swapping as a way of making friends without having to leave the house.
I currently foster cats for a local rescue group, which is incredibly rewarding and wonderful, and a bit dangerous as I never want to let any of them go.
I also have chickens, snakes, and turtles.
I LOVE gardening!
I spend a lot of time reading, writing,hoarding up delightful goodies and crafting supplies.
I like making craft items and 'arting' about :)
When I get the chance I like board games, card games etc - this doesn't work so great with a small social circle!
Please no holiday themed stuff, especially Christmas/Easter/V-day/Halloween unless the swap specifically calls for it.
Pagan stuff is fine but no other religious themed stuff unless the swap specifically calls for it.
I can't have caffeine so please choose caffeine free teas.
Preferences: not into sparkles, angels, fairies, cherubs, kids, kid stuff, Disney....however it isn't all bad news, in the next box you will find HEAPS of stuff I would love to receive.
I am always happy to receive anything in the following categories:
Edward Gorey, Tim Burton,
vivid colours/jewel tones,
old propaganda images,
day of the dead,
naive art (especially hillside cottages), mythology
I like whimsical stationery (especially animal/flower/plant themes) that is cute without being kawaii/childlike.
Love washi tape, and washi paper even more.
Love quirky, strange and retro postcards - perfectly happy with Zazzle, and ad-cards or home made so long as they are pretty, colourful or interesting.
Looking to start collecting ATCs and inchies - especially fabric, embroidered, hand drawn or hand painted. Would LOVE these :)
Stickers are fun, especially if something a bit different.
Home made envies are always welcome, as are postcards or ATCs.
Most crafting items welcomed - especially washi paper, rubber stamps, inks embossing powders, embroidery thread,
I don't collect postage stamps but pretty colourful bird/animal or plant themed ones can be used in crafts and would be welcome.
