About Me

My name is Cheryl and I'm what someone may describe as an introverted extrovert, which probably explains my awkwardness (and I'm so so so very awkward). I'm turning 31 this year and I'm in no way prepared for it.

10 favourite books

  1. Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain
  2. The Magicians series by Lev Grossman
  3. A Life in Frocks by Kelly Doust
  4. Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
  5. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
  6. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
  7. South of the Border, West of the Sun by Haruki Murakami
  8. Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffinegger
  9. The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets by Eva Rice
  10. Care Packages by Michelle Mackintosh

YAY!

Things I like to use, and that you will probably see in your crafts, or on my walls, or in my home:

  • small prints by independent designers
  • graffiti and street art
  • monstera leaf prints
  • cut outs of vintage ads
  • precious stone and crystal illustrations
  • world map related items
  • everything cacti and succulents
  • vintage illustrated children's books
  • vintage horticultural book cut outs
  • stationery stores
  • Riot Grrl over Stepford Wife
  • Lisa Frank over Shopkins
  • Sandy Lion/ Mrs Grossman's over Disney
  • The Addam's Family over Modern Family
  • Edward Gorey over Dr. Seuss
  • gummies over hard candy
  • cats over dogs (but I don't mind dogs at all)
  • toffee over caramel
  • sprinkle printed everything
  • donut stuff
  • washi (I'm basically obsessed)
  • patisseries
  • cold brewed coffee
  • berry and cherry flavoured tea
  • cold brewed tea! yummy!
  • embroidery
  • llamas are love

Boo!

The following are things I would prefer not to receive:

  • anything with snails on it
  • religious pamphlets/quotes
  • instant coffee sachets
  • used cosmetic products
  • bookmarks
  • keychains
  • coasters
  • magnets
  • blueberry flavoured things
  • caramel flavoured things

I'm really sorry. I don't use them, and I hate to waste.

Stuff I made

These were probably from May - June 2017.

I think I made this around the same time as well.

This would have been made in June 2017 too.

I've been trying new things lately. This is one of my latest swaps from October 2017.

Open for Private Swaps

I'm looking for people interested in the following:

  • plant themed flip book swap
  • map themed flip book swap
  • handmade gift tag swap
  • themed paper-crafting kit swap
  • candy/chocolate swap
  • wide washi sample swap
  • crafty pen pal-ing on a regular basis

Regarding the post

I use a postbox right outside my place of work. I love it a lot, which is strange I know, but I don't often see people using it. And I worry that it will eventually be taken down. The postman doesn't come often enough because it's rather out of the way but I'm on a one woman mission to revive this mail route. So, I'm sorry if the postmark is a little late. I always mail as early as I can, but sometimes the postman comes later than I'd expect.

And as for incoming mail - it's a little slow so have some faith. It usually arrives! I usually rate immediately (or at least on the day I receive your swap). Drop me a PM if you're worried about your swap and I'll keep an eye out for it.

Comment: Contents of the swap are fine, however you marked sent on March 4th, due date was March 10th but the postmark clearly states March 12th. Only because I am unsure how your postal mail is processed in your county is the reason you are receiving a five. Otherwise I would be rating a three for the late send.
Response: Thank you for the rating! I use a post box outside my place of work and it's a little remote so the postman doesn't come daily. But I don't understand, myself, why it would be postmarked that late. Either way, hope you liked the planner things I sent you!

Comment: Hello Cheryl. I loved your PC, I don't think it was actually boring. The stickers and decoration were super cool :P My daughter loves shop-kins, so the pancake sticker was much appreciated. From Krissy
Response: Thanks! I just thought that the printing on that postcard was a little dark and dull. Glad you liked the decoration! I really wanted to brighten it up a little cos I actually really like that PC ✨
