14/1/09: Happy New Year Swappers. After an unfortunately terrible swapping Christmas I am back with a vengance! All outstanding parcels will be in the post by the end of this week. Apologies for the delay.
Hello, I'm Jess and I'm something of a geek. I'm 19 and at the moment I live in London, where my life consists of literary analysis, writing creatively, bus rides into Central and Sainsbury's basics range. The trains go past my window like it's Belleville Rendezvous. (:
I like creativity; writing lists and diaries and stories and poems and letters, polaroids, photography in general, collage, blank paper, biro and paint, scrapbooks and origami and rudimentary felt stuffies and homemade cards, etc. At the moment I'm learning to sew and to knit.
I enjoy; making mess and fun, airports & hotels, city lights, English Literature, collage, comic books, face paint, make believe, moustaches, messy hair, diaries & scrapbooks, typewriters, tea parties, accordians, adventures, polaroids, mementos, video games, train journeys, German, Ben & Jerryâ€™s, PostSecret, camping, Mythology, Paperchase, theatre, snail mail, bookstores & coffee shops, carrot cake, Lucky Charms and Doctor Who.
I am also a keen traveller and I love experiencing new places. I would love to go to Japan, India or Russia, but in all honesty anywhere new and exciting suits me! I love languages and culture. Ich spreche ein bisschen Deutsch & I am learning Russian and Japanese at the moment.
I would love to receive: anything handmade, letters and journals, matchboxes and whimsey jars, homemade stuffies (food with facesâ™¥), polaroids, undeveloped film, your favourite photographs, drawings and paintings, ATCs, homemade postcards, mixed CDs, interesting things from your country, maps, quotes, quirky writing paper, felt scraps, collage scraps and ephemera, scrabble cubes and games pieces, interesting cookie cutters, recipes, a big, fat, vintage locket, robot/ pirate/ video game related things, things with rainbows/ polka dots/ apples/ strawberries/ cupcakes, etc. But I'm not fussy. As long as a certain degree of thought has been put into a swap, I can't complain.
I am a closet perfectionist so if I commit to a swap I will complete it with as much time and care as possible and to the best of my abilities. I only hope that you are suitably happy with the result.
