What Im About

Terribly sorry everyone I need to have a sabbatical from swapbot, real life is getting me down a bit at the moment and having to cope with a bad job and illness. I will be on to rate as receive packages and also will send the last swap that needs to be sent, but afraid won't be about much, sorry to everyone - just need a break xx

 what I pledged

I am a conscientious person and always send out before the end date, if there are any problems please contact me to sort them out!

If you wish a surprise on what I am sending you in a swap I would not recommend looking at my blog or flickr as your item is likely to be on there! I usually send a message to let you know when I have sent out (though sometimes the internet I have access to doesn't always work!) and I do put my whole heart into the creation of my things. Always feel free to contact me with any problems, even if its to chat!

As I have got into Swapbot now in a big way, I have decided that I wish to have a little trademark on most of my swaps, so you may find a little mini heart smiley in your package as my partner, please give them a good home and share the smiles x x x

Hello I am a full time civil litigation secretary, having finished textile art last year at uni achieving a Bachelors. I love to be creative my main hobbies are knitting and crochet, recently coming into amigurumis and designing my own.

My other 'hobby' having recently got the wii is Guitar Hero, it is so very very addictive and I was a critic from the start!

Favorite Music

Anything goes really that catches my ear, I love Lacuna, Evanescence and techno but I am not really up to date as I never ever listen to the radio!

Favorite Books

LOOOOOVVVVEE Terry Prachett, he is my number one favourite! Also like Tom Holt and Robert Rankin (whispers and Harry Potter). Im up for reading anything that is funny or at the other end and clever and twisty. I have also read the entire series of Twilight by Stephanie Meyers and the books are fantastic, just need to see the movie now, she writes so well (must read Host by her as well)

Favorite Movies

Love fantasies, horrors and comedies. Will Ferrell is an absolute favourite especially in Anchor Man and Blades of Glory. My relaxation is Family Guy and American Dad and of course Red Dwarf. Love Ghibli and Anime movies, any cute kawaii character and I am smitten!

Never Ending Story, Willow, Legend, Labyrinth, Constantine, Fifth Element, Hellboy 2, Stardust.

Favorite Television

Not a great deal into tv as we only have the four channels. Simpsons and Hollyoaks is the only regular unless Dragons Den is on and documentaries.

Favorite Crafts

Knitting, crochet, tapestry, weaving, felt making, sewing! Also just got back into friendship bracelets!

Starting to learn to spin and liking that as well!


Likes: I love to make amigurumi's and am starting to set up a shop on Folksy.com, my user name is lilacamy931 and my shop amygurumis. I also now have an etsy shop with a few bits on.

I was born on 23.09.84 which i believe makes my Chinese sign the Rat which at first thought oh...so wanted to be a dragon, but reading the characteristics really are me!

I adore pufferfish and dachshunds (sausage dogs) but not together! I am really into quirky animals like c'mon or ugly dolls, love shiny sparkly and glittery things and literally can become a bit magpie like (and possessive at times!) Also love and adore my other half who is very lovely towards me and tolerant of my wool stash that is everywhere! Love kawaii, cute and unusual toys (and randomnly lumped with this chocolate!).

Lastly I also really love fantastical and cute creatures, like dragons, unicorns, etc as well as Japanese unusual like Ghilbi, Domokun, etc! I havent done a whimsical jar swap yet (really may have to try one) but generally i love handmade soft things! Oh! And also just got back into friendship bracelets - would love to do swaps on these! My favourite colours are hot bright pinks, purples, electric blues, turquoises.

Dislikes...hmmm not realllly anything! If there had to be something not keen on the colour orange, but then if something is meant to be orange (and I do like burnt orange) then I'd still love it! Also not keen on yellows and greens (except grass greens and vintage greens) though again if it works I would love it!

I am not into ATCs and inchies or any kind of paperwork as such (though open to ideas), more stuffies and plushies etc.


Im already finding this site really addictive after completing my first swap and receiving my first (an adorable candy corn amigurumi!) Have now cleared a shelf for 'swaps' where everything received will have pride of place. My partner is excited as well as he cant wait to see what i will send or receive next!

If I am your swap partner and you have not received anything, please contact me asI would be devastated to have an unhappy partner. I absolutely love crafts so try to put heart into everything I make. I love to try new challenges but will be honest if I don't think I can do it or haven't the time.

Would like to receive:

Handmade Plushies, Stuffies - animals, ghibli, food, kawaii, pretty much anything.

Kawaii things (quite hard to get in the UK - and I seem to be alone in wanting to find the cuteness!)

Hannari Tofu things


Ugly Dolls

Skeleton Plushies

Plushie, Amigurumi characters

Japanese characters

Lucky wish stars

Things that are glittery and sparkly

Fabric made things and toys

Things to do with knitting and crochet

Lucky Charms the cereal (a childhood favourite cereal that we don't get over here anymore - I had 6 boxes but had the last bowl now - OH NO!) I absolutely love unicorns (and was very insistent that i had to have one when I was young!) Anything to do with unicorns and pegasus's! (Brought my niece a flying singing light sparkling unicorn recently and it is sooo hard to part with!)

Handmade things, I the quality and individuality that comes with handmade things.

Polymer clay made items (such as food, kawaii) - I have not a chance to play with myself but a recent cute smiley milk carton has won me over!

Beads and Buttons

Heart shapes (especially!), star shapes and rainbows

The Good and The Bad..

This is just so I can really thank the angels of swapbot and give them a mention and also keep track of what I have been flaked on..

Valentine Stuffie - flaked on by @grannylove5 but was wonderfully angelled by @PrairieMouse - a huge thank you xx
