About Me

Let me introduce myself - Mergs is a nickname given to me by my father when I was a wee-smally-type! (It's stuck!) I live in a large rural city in western New South Wales which is at state of eastern Australia. I was excited to discover the Swap-bot site, as I love to receive snail mail especially parcels and magazines - anything that's not a bill! My favourite things include reading novels, and listening to many types of music. I enjoy watching romantic comedies and period dramas.

Favorite Crafts

I love paper crafts - especially card making. I also embroider, cross stitch and am learning to machine sew. I collect stationery and look forward to sharing this passion with others. I love everything from papers to clips to stickers to all types writing equipment, pencils, felt tips, markers you name it! I've recently discovered rub-ons and clear unmounted stamps! Wow - the options! What fun!! My colour palette revolves around shades of blue and green, but I love experimenting with patterns and colour combinations. As a swap-botter I have discovered and love to create ATCs. They are also a wonderful way of receiving a small piece of someone else's creativity.

Miscellaneous

Things I do (not crafty): play the flute; walk for enjoyment and exercise; play games for the mind - crosswords, sudoku, trivia etc; teach children (5-12 years) and love spending time with my husband and 2 cats (these are our spoiled children!). I have collections of Minton porcelain, Swarovski crystal and silver bracelets with charms - Pandora included.

Favorite Music

My iPod is full of alternative '80s, laid back '70's, cool jazz, classical, as well as, recent releases. You won't find any country, rap or techno!

Favorite Books

I most enjoy detective stories, true crime anything that makes you think! I also love to revisit the classics such as Bronte, Austen, Chaucer, Wilde etc. And as an occupational hazard, good children's literature and picture books.

Favorite Television

A healthy diet of British comedy (both old and new), game shows and documentaries.

I do but I don't..

I love cats as pets and animals, but I don't collect them nor am I fussed on their images on things. (Dragonflies seem more appealing, graceful & elegant.) I enjoy flowers in gardens and cut in arrangements but I'm not into floral prints or flowery scents. I much prefer patterns and spicy fragrances. I love food especially sweet things (jubes and chocolate are favourites) and I'm allergy free.
