Hi All

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 ([email protected]) 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....

About Me

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!

No thanks...

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:

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.

Comment: I wrote on Apr. 25th that I had not received the letter. I waited nearly a month after the deadline because I know mail takes a while to get to the U.S. A response was received May 4th indicating a new letter would be mailed. It is now June 15th so I think it's time to rate. However, I will gladly change this rating if / when this swap is received.
cloudylimeade rated for CL: Pick my Next Book #23 on Jun 14, 2017
Comment: I received your swap, thank you! I feel rather responsible for the two-month long hell that was 'Infinite Jest'! I am definitely removing it from my wishlist. I'm sorry you had such a tough time slogging through it with no real reward! I'm glad, though, to hear that you've been able to pick yourself up since then and read some enjoyable novels to recover!
Response: Confirming that this is resent Monday 5th June.
Comment: If i receive something i will change this rating

Comment: So sorry for the rating. I will re rate once I receive something.

boredwifey rated for Serial Killer ATC on May 26, 2017
Comment: This swap ended 2 months ago. I gave you plenty of time considering you were sending from Australia. I contacted you but you were already partially suspended at that point. Turns out I am not the only one you flaked on! I hate rating anyone a one, I will gladly re rate if I receive anything.
Response: Hey there - sorry I have not noticed your contact, we are experiencing some problems at home at the moment and I am not checking in online regularly. I am happy to resend - will do over the coming weekend and confirm resend date on Monday 5th June.

Thank you for the watersoluble crayons I received today. When you said you would sent me something I didn't expect to get some awesome craft supplies. Thank you a lot! The journal was made with love and I had a great time making it. I'm glad you liked it and you didn't have to give me this. It is much appreciated though! Thanks again.
