I'm a chatty, sometimes confident, creative, imaginative, moaning..... 31 year old female from the north of England.
I have so many hobbies and interests but like everything you need time... my main hobbies are writing super long chatty letters on the cutest stationery I can get my hands on, reading books but not magazines unless its real life issue ones and papercrafts.
Letter sets and Pads
Long handwritten letters
Stickers especially sacks
Going for long walks in parks, woodlands and other natures places
Papercrafts...anything with paper like ATCs, Greeting Cards, Bookmarks, journals, paperdolls, Origami Lucky stars etc...
Reading books and letters
Embellishments of any kind
Listening to Music
I don't have a favourite colour since I like all but some colours suit an item more then others so I may not like it in that sense. I tend to go for autumn colours of yellow, orange, brown or lovely bright summery colours.
Rubber stamps-trees, leaves, shells, other nature themed ones. keys, zettiology and so many more designs
creating surprises for friends
biscuits (move over cookie monster)
coloured fine liner pens
funky socks (patterned one, toe socks etc..)
hand sewing with felt, fabric or on paper (but really want to be able to use a machine)
Being ill :(
Black backgrounds on blogs
I would have loved to have made a list of things I want but those are so long that its easir to make this list of things I'd rather not have as its much shorter.
So I don't want any
Craft paper.... yes I love it and can use it but I'm at the point of bursting. I would one day like to make my own so need to use all that I have.
Pig images (this includes Piglet, anything dressed or resembling pigs)
Food: No Pork/Beef Gelatin items (so easir to buy suitable for vegatarian items), no chocolate that contain alcohol, coffee flavour, anything like Turkish delight or bitter chocolates (I don't mind dark but those that are almost like burnt toast!)
Tiny stickers or reward stickers
Tiny note paper or Post It notes
Weird looking characters (for example those Japanese people characters with strange expressions, lines for faces etc...)
Nudes/semi nudes things,
nothing religious please,
nothing celebrity related.
Writing paper that has been folded, use the appropriate sized envelope please
Drawings by your children unless its part of a swap I join
Do not include FBs, Decos etc... because I don't swap them
Otherwise I'm happy with any nice and clean good quality items.
Please be a little patient in receiving swaps as I'm sending from England and can not predict how fast/slow mail will be to your country but if I've said I've sent it, it will be on its way.
U.S is usually 5-14 days and Europe 3- 10 days but I've known it sometimes to take much longer.
I didn't feel the need to add this section before but I do now as I have 2 swaps that I never received that people have sent (and I believe it) but also I'm so fed up of the quality of swaps I'm getting because people think their extras will do all the hard work for them.
Firstly I rate the day that I receive a swap so if you find I haven't left you a rating its because I haven't got it. If I remember to check the deadlines then I will get in touch with you but if you are worried about me not getting something get in touch and we'll sort something out... I promise I don't bite.
As for swaps your sending me, if you want a heart, I want you to put your damn hardest effort into making the item a 'wow' item, sending extras is not wow as that is your choice to pay the extra postage. I send extra's myself if I have something that fits in with my partners profile or the swap, that I think they may like and be able to use. If I just give you a 5 it is because you've sent your item, it meets the swap but I wasn't blown away with it so there is no use in getting in touch asking me what's wrong with your package because I didn't give you a heart (yes I had someone do this!). I hope those that I'm sending to will rate me for my item and not the lack of extras.
I feel so rude writing this but I just feel it needs to be said since I want items I can use, love, cherish and feel I deserved for the swap I sent my partner. I don't want the bin to feel all those things. I am such a terrible hoarder that I hope to be looking at something you've made, sent 20 years from now... unless its a food item then I guess my waist line will appreciate that :P.
