I have 2 furkids of the doggy kind, live north of Brisbane in Queensland Australia on small property of 4Ha. I'm a scrapbooker who is now hooked on ATCs. I love gardening as well - veggies and fruit trees mostly. I do have some flowers and other shrubs such as camellias. I love orchids -but I only have a few.
I'm an ATC Addict. Some of my swaps can be viewed on my flicka site. If you are my parter in a swap and you don't want the suprise spoiled perhaps wait to have a look on flicka until after the mail has arrived.
I will never flake, if you didn't get your swap just message me and I will resend straight away. If I don't receive your swap within a month of the date I will message you. I understand that sometimes life gets in the way of art and I wouldn't want to wreck your rating over a package lost in the post or an illness. If you are going to be late message me - I'll understand.
I take pride in making something I hope my partner will really enjoy. When sending extras I will look at your profile to see what you like or need so give me some hints, lol.
I will rate you as soon as I get your swap items. I have decided that I will rate on the quality and thoughtfulness of the package not just the quantity.
I love scrapbooking - especially into ATCs. I really don't know how to describe my style as it changes depending on the theme. I have been into folkart painting in the past and would like to learn watercolours.
I will read almost anything. But love horror and fantasy on the fiction side and anything about gardening, craft, wildlife and interesting people on the non-fiction side
I love camping, the bushwalking, photographing nature. But most of all I love my doggies (Oh yeh and DH I suppose!!)
AUSTRALIAN QUARANTINE RULES Being in Australia there are certain items that CAN NOT be received by me in the post due to strict quarantine rules. This inclues animal and plant products eg meat, dairy, seeds and nuts, fruits and veggies. The full list of no-nos is here http://www.daff.gov.au/aqis/mail/cant-mail
anything nature - especially birds, butterflies, dragonflies, wolves, dingos, waterfalls, cloud formations, bark and leaf textures, etc
little metal and other embellishments
Colours - earth colours, purple, green, blue, all deep colours
ATCs - collage, paint, watercolours, stamped, drawing, etc
Anything I can't get in Aus in relation to papers, images, stickers, stamps, etc
and DH is a cinnamon chewing gum fan and its hard to get (and expensive) here in Australia
These things I'm not so fond of. But I'm not going to die in a ditch over them. If you put effort and heart into your creations and art I'm sure I'll love it. (Even if it's a psalm with a picture of a baby hugging a neon yellow kitty.) However, I'm not budging on the brussel sprouts they are hideous!!
Colours - neons like bright yellow, pink and orange
Cats - I'm really a dog person though I do like tigers (though I don't think my dogs would appreciate if I brought one home)
Baby and kiddy themed stuff
I'm not a religious person - though I do like some religious and spiritual iconography and symbolism.
Oh and most importantly brussel sprouts - mega yuck! (though I'm struggling to think of a situation where someone might like to send me one)
I hoped this would never happen but
