I am a 40 something stay at home mum to 2 beautiful little girls, who have just started school. I live in a lovely little country town in the bush, our home backs onto a national park and we are the only ones out here. We adore living out here.
My girls and I are very creative and spend most days creating things, I find my stash rapidly depletes thanks to my girls, they love playing and creating things with my things.
I have so much fun creating things and sending them out into the world. Swapbot is so fantastic for this. It is fun receiving different things in the post, even our post lady has become fascintated with all the different things I send out.
I must confess that I am a paper addict. I love all paper and just can't help myself. Even though my stash is bigger then Ben Hur I go near a shop that has paper and I just have to go in.. :-) There are so many different things you can create with paper....
I love creating ATC's, inchies, twinches, notecards, postcards, scrapbook pages of my girls, Art Journals and mail art to name a few.
I enjoy playing with felt and this would be a very close second to the paper. Felt is such a forgiving and easy medium to work with. I also create my own felt from scratch using wool and soap, this must be one of the most relaxing past times.
I knit and crochet a little, I am very slow and it takes me forever.
Anything pink. (Favourite colour) , I am a girly girl and love anything pretty, I tend to turn towards pastel colours, but I do like all colours and use them all.
ATC's, Inchies, Twinchies, Art Journals..
Items to create ATC's inchies, twinchies, art journals etc..
Anything vintage ( paper, book [ages, old magazine pages and newspapers are so fascintating). Paper, paper doyleys, puches etc...Images of stamps I don't have a very large collection.
Ribbons, Buttons, Lace, Bling, Ric Rac, Threads, fibres etc.
Stickers, Embellishments - all kinds.
Crocheted flowers, doyleys etc...
Love all things handmade
Christmas is my favourite time of year, I start creating my Christmas pressies in Jan. :-)
Birds and Butterflys are my absolute favourite (I use these alot in my art work).
My favourite food would have to be chocolate, this is something I just cannot live without. I love to drink Tea (lots of it) and Hot Chocolate comes a close second.
Postage Stamps, collect these.
Stamped images, don't have a large collection myself, so any of these is welcome.
Postcards. I have trouble finding these here.
Items for creating Collage.
Epherema, I find this so interesting
Stationary, and pretty Envelopes.
I don't really have any dislikes. I like the fact that everyone is different. That is what makes the world such an interesting place. It would be boring if we were all the same. We should embrace our differences and everyone elses.
I try and get all my swaps in the post as quick as I can, i live a fair distance from town and in the holidays don't venture in everyday. I always try and be organised. If you do not recieve my swap, it is because the post has gone astray ( I have had this happen alot lately) please let me know and I am happy to resend. I know what it feels like to be expecting something and it doesn't show up, I promise I will not have forgotten you. I will always let you know if I am going to be late. Mail has been known to get lost or be slow arriving, so I will wait a substantial time up to 6 weeks before giving a rating.
What a wonderful start to 2012, certainly makes up for last year. Girls are ready for school and looking forward to starting at a new school. I am so enjoying swapping with everyone I am loving everything I have been receiving. Here is too a wonderful year filled with creative goodness and happiness.
I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and New Year. Please stay safe and drive carefully if travelling. We are taking a much needed holiday and won't be back until next year. Have had a wonderful year swapping and getting to know everyone, look forward to another fun filled swap year in 2013.
