Favorite Television

Colour in your Life (Australian Artists), Lifestyle shows esp home renovation, Time Team, some crime drama (interesting characters and shows that aren't all dark and intense), Jeeves and Wooster (Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie), Phryne Fisher Mysteries (coming soon to Canadian TV), Pride and Prejudice (BBC version with Jennifer Ehle), New Tricks, Doctor Blake Mysteries, Miniscule, Whose Line is it?,

Favorite Crafts

Collage, painting, silk painting, Papercraft, quilting, sewing, sculpting. I dabble in lots of things rather than having a single passion. I love ATC's with the emphasis on "Art". I do not like A-bit-of-scrapbook-paper-and-a-dab-of-glitter-Trading-Cards. I put time into my cards and would like to receive cards that have some thought and effort put into them. I am just beginning journaling so that is a new adventure.

Please don't send

Please don't send:- Cute pictures of dogs or cats (jungle cats ok), pictures of children, kids stickers, too many hearts and flowers, Disney characters

About Me

I like vintage images, ephemera such as old travel brochures and tickets, Art Nouveau, old architecture, turquoise (the colour), purple, 60's black and white spy comics, illustrations, Alice in Wonderland (not Disney), Wind in the Willows (not Toad), Playing card motifs in art, Tarot card motifs in art, Edwardian themed, Art Nouveau themed anything, Poetry, Cocktails, Old Recipes, Pin-up girls, Fashion 1800- 1970, Black and white illustrations, gothic moods,

Wish list

I would like your swap item to have time and effort put in to it. Extras are lovely but putting effort into your swap item is the key. If you have any of the following and can spare a little that would be nice but not necessary; Japanese papers, die-cuts (I don't have a machine), transparent paper, old magazine/newspaper ads

Comment: Thank you very much for your letter! :) I would love to give extra hearts if that was possible. What a creative idea for the envelope! And thank you very much for the wonderful note :) I appreciate that you took the time to write it! And I loved the rabbit, wow, great drawing :) Thanks for including the postcard, it is very interesting, I love to see this kind of card from different countries, it's interesting to see how and what is advertised :) The image I'll write about to you is the black and write image, correct? Should I send it back to you or keep it? (I received mine back in this swap, but either way is fine for me :)) I'm already thinking about what to write, I have some ideas :) I'll write your letter after the Christmas days, I'm looking forward to it. Happy holidays to you and all the best!

Comment: Thank you for your story and lovely letter. Please do not worry that your story has to be simple for other people to add to it yet complex to stand on its own. Just write what you like without worrying about that! I'm looking forward to continuing it!

Thank you so much for the gorgeous snake and origami-in-a-pocket which you decorated my journal with before sneding it home to me. I love your work, you are so creative and talented. It is nice to have my journal back and see the pages that the participants in the swap series have created for my pleasure.

Lots of love and play dates,
