About Me

Making up years ago swaps, please bear with..

Six of my previous partners have gone awol on here - Finfolk, BDooBs, LavenderLizard, papercaper, runnerbean84 and mamamonkey, so these ones I'm stuck with for now.

Favorite Music

I like almost everything - I can live without metal and gothic, but as my other half likes it I end up having to live with it quite a bit. I do like rock, but prefer slightly more gentle stuff, like Foo Fighters, My Bloodly Valentine, Biffy Clyro etc.. I also love Nina Simone, Razorlight, Eels, Belle and Sebastian, Jeff Buckley, Broken Family Band, and loads more.

Favorite Books

I read more scifi than anything, but I am branching out a bit more these days! I love reading fantasy too, historical fiction and on occasion chick lit (although not too often because it always makes me feel like I've been bingeing on sweets). I also like anything vampy or a little dark, although my one proviso for horror is that it is appropriate to the story - I don't enjoy gore just for the sake of it much.

Specific authors I like to read are: Robert Holdstock, Stephen King, Anne Rice, Jacqueline Carey, Jim Butcher, Lynn Flewellyn, Robin Hobbs

Things I have to trade

At the moment I have the following items to trade:

1960s/70s craft patterns/magazines



Tea bags and drink sachets from the UK

Chocolate, sweets and other food stuffs from the UK

Small knitted animals (please let me know if there is one you would prefer)

Embroidery floss



Comment: I have never received anything. But, will re-rate if I receive the swap. Thank you for sending the swap-I have changed the rating. Everything arrived in good shape.
Comment: Okay, this was late, but it was such a fun package that I would normally have given it a heart, so giving it only a five — no heart — is knocking it down a notch. Thanks for making it right.
Response: You're welcome, I'm a bit overwhelmed by the rating :D I'm glad you liked it so much! Xx
Comment: Thanks so much... wow... surface mail takes FOREVER
Comment: I will change if I receive anything. : (

Comment: I never received your email for the "Inspired by StumbleUpon. I'm rating you a one. You haven't been on swap-bot since Feb. 23 so I felt no need to send you a pm. I've pm'd you about an item you had to trade on March 10 and have not heard back. I will change the rating should you decide to send.

dylannika rated for Altered Text ATC Series: Black on Feb 22, 2011
Comment: I love the ATC. Great use of texture. I store mine in a box, so I don't have to worry about the sleeves!!!
Response: I'm pleased you liked it - I thought it looked good, but then I got really paranoid about the size since I'd added so much stuff to it, I got some really good glue last week so I've been gluing everything to everything lol

Thank you for the cute little owl for the Crafty Swap Tag. Did you get that pattern online? I downloaded the crochet pattern form Brigitte Read, but I haven't tried it yet. I'm still learning the basics for crochet...so many crafts to learn, so little time :)
