I'm heading to the USA again in 2018 this time to visit Orlando so if you have any tips or info on visiting Disney World or Universal I'd love to hear from you xx


I’m a married Mum of two teenage daughters. I work full time running a cleaning company (up to 70 hours per week - phew) which keeps me active and gives me a time out to clear my head each day although it would be great of my phone didn’t ring so often.

My feathered and furry family consist of King Arthur and Pope Francis the budgies, Levi the giant guinea pig and my psychotic blind silky terrier Corky and his permanently confused younger brother Buster. I’m always struggling to get more ‘me time’ in my craft room.

Swap Interests

  • ATC’s. I cannot draw or detail paint very well no matter how hard I try. Mixed Media seems to be the style that suits me best

  • Handmade pockets and envelopes

  • Index Cards. I use 5" x 3"

  • Rolodex Cards. I use 3 sizes which are listed below

  • Die Cuts

  • Interesting or Patterned Paper Pieces

  • Small Journals – I love small flat journals with themes like ‘a sentence a day’ or ‘about my day’

  • Accordion Albums

  • Ephemera – postcards, photos, magazine clippings, recipes, advertisements, images of anything in my ‘Themes I like’ list (above), quotes, die cuts, alphabets, childrens book pages

  • Non touristy postcards

  • Pages with text in languages other than English or unusual fonts for use in mixed media projects

  • Tip in Journal Pages

  • Flatback embellishments

  • Postage Stamps. I’m building quite an impressive collection now of stamps from all over the globe and am especially fond of stamps from Japan, The Netherlands, New Zealand and Canada

  • Altered Matchboxes. I haven’t swapped these in a long time as the postage cost both within Australia and overseas is beyond ridiculous.


Currently Working On:

  • Altering an old childrens Christmas book I bought from the thrift store that I’m converting into a Quotes and Lyrics Art Journal with the help of a truck load of gesso

  • Rolodex Cards. I have 3 sizes to work on at the moment thanks to two awesome retro finds at the thrift store. 3.25”x1.75”, 4”x2.25” & an oddly sized 4"x2.5" that I have a die for.

  • ‘Do You Ever Ask Yourself What If’ book from Typo

  • A sentence A Day for 5 Years Journal

  • I have started a sort of Junk Journal although I don’t like calling it that. It’s a glue book/smash book/collection of things I find or am given and really like book. I guess it's the way a scrapbook used to be before big businesses got in on the act. The aim is to keep the embellishing of the pages to a minimum and to keep items that I love the look of, as opposed to an Art Journal or a Smash Book where every item no matter how mundane is kept.



  • any size paper pieces

  • halloween die cuts, papers or paper pieces and halloween embellishments of any kind. It's so difficult to obtain them here in Australia.

  • printed paper napkins

  • the front page of your local newspaper

  • used postage stamps

  • book pages in a language other than English or in an unusual font

  • anything with Pisces on it


I have 30 RAK/Happy Mail envelopes available from my massive recent destash available for anyone that would like one. They’re all different and include things like die cuts, stickers, papers, embellishments, postage stamps, ribbon etc. If you would like one, just message me your address and I’ll happily pop one in the mail for you.

Thanks so much for angeling the winter matchbox swap! I really appreciate you sending, particularly with the expense of shipping overseas now!

I'm sooo happy right now....that was one huge bag of happy mail! Thank you so much, I don't even know what to say. You sent me a bit of everything that I love :) Thank you (Aussie Swapaholics - 'not crappy' tag swap)

Hi Raspberryrose, Here's hoping that you have received my long over due replacement swap Have tracked down why the first swap didn;t match sending date. My husband or daughter will post mail for me. I was talking to my daughter about how mixed up I was, when I was having my treatment. and how I messed up , the swap.......well it turns out I give them to her. She put the parcels in her boot. and forgot all about them She said that when she did post them she told me...........I honestly cannot remember .......but that solves that .
