Wow, I’ve been away from swap bot for 5 years. A lot has happened. Totally relocated and my kids and I lost everything we owned ... literally. We’ve move on from that though. It’s just my youngest and myself these days (she’s 19 now) and we have started over and doing ok.
I work full time and she’s a permanent casual in a craft shop.
I’ve reached out to those swappers I left hanging and apologised and offered to make amends. Some appear to be still active so fingers crossed I can do so.
About Me as a Swapper and Host
I will always rate. Since it's usually a while before I get to the computer and I'm not exactly the most organised person if I have not rated you please give me a nudge :-)
Even if you don't want to rate me, please at least drop me a PM to let me know it has arrived safe and sound, particularly as most of my stuff heads overseas.
Some new additions to my wish list are these things I have only just heard of!! Dew drops - snot dots - or the stuff to make these at home - a splat mat!! I have not been able to find one at a reasonable price that will post to Australia.
I have dabbled in a lot of crafts over the years. My passion is cross stitch though, I particularly like stitching 'smalls' - scissor fobs, biscornus, needlebooks etc.
My favourite colour is purple, but I love any of the deep jewel like tones like the deep pinks, turquoise/aqua and peacock blues.
I also love collecting anything that could come in handy one day
Tiny (scrapbooking type) and novelty buttons or antique
6 inch fabric squares or halloween or christmas fabric, or chocolate, candy, cupcakes etc
overdyed embroidery floss - espec the newer Weeks Dye Works. Also Caron waterlillies or Crescent Colors Pansy Purple
Cross stitch fabric - linen or evenweave, I hate using aida though
Ephemera or anything else I can use on ATCs (I am becoming addicted to ATCs). Also bits and pieces for a potential future SMASH book, and seriously considering giving this a go!
Black glitter gel pens - I can't find them anywhere
Textured or handmade paper
Kreinik #4 braid
My bedroom is jewel tones.
The rest of the house is Reds & purples
I have also started collecting an owl or 2 lol
I am a definate chocoholic. Love trying chocolate from different places.
Likes: Hersheys kisses or hugs, peanut butter chocolate
Soft centred chocolates
Dislikes: Aniseed or licorice
I have quite a few favourite authors but the list is topped by Stephen King, Dean Koontz, James Patterson, Lee Childs, Jeffrey Deaver, Jonathon Kellerman. I love thrillers, crime and horror although I will read almost anything - I hate not having a book 'on the go'.
Love Masterchef and most other cooking shows
The Amazing Race, Survivor etc - love watching the people dynamics
Similar tastes to my reading material - so Buffy, NCIS, CSI, Without A Trace, Bones are all up there.
I love older TV as well - Seinfeld, Everybody Loves Raymond, The King of Queens, MASH, Hogans Heroes, I Dream of Jeannie, Bewitched lol, yeah I know - I'm hopeless. We just finished watching The Gilmore Girls - I never saw it when it was new! Of course I cannot survive without Packed To The Rafters
Very average tastes I think - I particularly like the 60's, 70's and 80's. I love our home grown talent, especially John Farnham, Kate Ceberano, Human Nature, Tina Arena, Natalie Imbruglia. I also like Pink, Shania Twain, Tina Turner - to name a few, quite a variation I guess lol
