Wow, Iâ€™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. Weâ€™ve move on from that though. Itâ€™s just my youngest and myself these days (sheâ€™s 19 now) and we have started over and doing ok.
I work full time and sheâ€™s a permanent casual in a craft shop.
Iâ€™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
