About Me

15/08/2019- final swap sent.

12/7/2019- package received by @breathingoxygen new rating received Package received by @wingy

2/7/2019- packages on the way to @breathingoxygen @wingy and @sarah90 to make up for swaps I flaked on in 2015.

18/6/19- I thought I should point out that 5 of the swaps on my current list are old swaps that are either hosted by people no longer active or ones I am actively trying to put right.

3/6/19- massive apologies to anyone I flaked on over the last five years, I think I was last here in 2015.

I'm not going to be seriously swapping for the foreseeable future (online/postcard only) as I am continuing to struggle with my health.

If there's anyone out there who feels I owe them something please do get in touch. I know I flaked on several swaps but have no real idea how bad it got.


I have a long history of ill health and was diagnosed with bipolar in 2009- around this time I took on two swaps that I flaked out on.

In 2015 my health got bad again and I flaked on some more swaps, i'm trying to make up for this.

In 2016 I was made redundant from my job at the local University and have been unable to work full time since then due to my ill health


I've been making zines on and off for about the last 25 years, and they are my first love- however i'm not going to take on any zine swaps until I know i've got the capacity to follow through.

Favorite Crafts

Primarily i'm a paper and pen kinda girl- cutting and pasting, photocopying and stapling are the things that make me most excited. However here's a list of other things I like to turn my hand to:
making 1" badges, machine embroidery, print making, drawing

Likes

zines (will swap my zines for your zines), comics godzilla, cheese, old photos, oil sticks, black ink, vintage fabric, old embroidery, wooden cotton reels, old book pages, tracing paper, brown paper, old lace, masking tape, pritt stick, black ink brush pens, old children's books, gold leaf

Dislikes

smoking/smoke

religion (please don't pray for me, or send me religious items (oh unless they are kitsch/tacky collectables from any religion!))

meat (i've been veggie for about 27 years now) so please don't send me anything that has animals in!

I'm really not interested in 'Scrapbooking' - I do collect scraps and strange bits of paper, but I much prefer these to be original materials -newspaper/magazine/book pages etc- rather than things that have been created for scrapbooking. I hope that makes sense?

What i'm here to swap for

i'm primarily here to make up for the swaps I flaked on.

Hopefully in the future I will be able to swap for zines, and get involved with making more of them- I hope that swap-bot gives me the push to be more productive!

Favorite Books

I love reading. For the last few years i've been challending myself to read 50 books a year that are new to me. I keep a record of my reading on Goodreads

I think if you spent too long looking at my reading lists you could work out a LOT about me, which is rather worrying.

Favorite Television

I wasn't going to add a tv section, but I realised that despite not having a tv I actually watch a lot of stuff! I think i've realised that actually I watch a lot of sci-fi/fantasy genre stuff, which I never would have owned up to a few years ago.

Some of my favourites are: Buffy, Angel, Doctor Who, Marvels Agents of SHIELD, Sleepy Hollow, Orange is the New Black, Ripper St, Constantine, documentaries, Project Runway, Misfits, Black Books, Spaced, Green Wing, Twin Peaks, Northern Exposure, Six Feet Under, Tales of the City, Game of Thrones, Mighty Boosh, The X-files...

HI, it's me again. Just following up to see if you rec'd my zine which was sent 2/28/15. You've not read my two previous messages so I don't have much hope of this one getting looked at either. I just want to know if you rec'd the zine and if you could please rate so I can close out this swap. Hope everything is OK. Take care, Brenda

beenebag on Mar 19, 2015:

Hi! Just following up on a zine I sent to you FEB 28. I've PM'd and emailed you but haven't heard back yet but I see you haven't been online since FEB 21. Please let me know if you rec'd it or not. If you did, please rate so I can archive this swap. If you didn't get it yet, let me know and I can resend. Thanks so much:) Hope all is well.

Saristotle on Mar 9, 2015:

I had to remove you from Eff Your Beauty Standards for flaking on the first swap you joined with the group. I hope everything is okay.
