About Me

I am 36 years old and live in Scotland. I am mum to 4 children age 17, 16, 14 and 10. We have two cats and two chinchillas.

I am into penpalling and making and swapping FBs, LBs, sticker bags and decos. If you are my partner in a swap and have excess to move on you are welcome to send it my way. I'm also happy to take any homers or last signer items for people in the UK.

Favorite Crafts

I used to do a lot of sewing when my children were younger. Mostly I used to sew clothes, bags and quilts. I've recently re-organised my fabric stash and I'm looking forward to getting back into sewing again.

I like drawing, painting and all kinds of paper crafts. I also like writing and journaling.

I like mail art - I've been decorating envelopes since I was little. I'd love to take part in something like the Mailart 365 challenge, but I think that's far too ambitious for me. Maybe something like one a week would be more manageable. I am just starting to venture into handmade postcards. I love zines too, although I haven't made one of my own yet, but I have some ideas for one - when I finally get some spare time... I'd love to see other people's zines. I only have a few that I've got from etsy so far.

Favorite Books

I love to read! I'm not really into fantasy/sci-fi, but I'll read anything else. I like a lot of the classic children's books, and the newer ones, like A Series of Unfortunate Events. Never read Harry Potter yet though. I have a large collection of cook books too. I particularly like vegetarian and vegan cook books.

Favorite Music

I pretty much like all kinds of music. I'm not so keen on classical music or jazz, but everything else is awesome. I listen to music all the time. If you are ever stuck for something to write on a postcard I'd love to hear about your favourite bands, artists or songs.

Likes/Dislikes

I love anything and everything Moomin!

Purple is my favourite colour, but I love anything rainbow coloured.

I love owls.

I like ephemera, things like bus tickets, tags from things, old maps and book pages, basically any interesting paper item.

I love pretty much any kind of postcards. Viewcards, art cards, animals, handmade, anything! I use them in art journalling a lot.

I like any kind of penpalling items, like lettersets, note paper, note cards, excess FBs etc.

I like kawaii and anything CUTE!!! (not so much Hello Kitty or Diddl)

On the other hand I also love anything gothic or spooky.

I love the steampunk and Victorian looks. I'm quite obsessed with pocket watches.

I like anime, manga and comic books. I LOVE Black Butler.

I don't think I really have any particular dislikes... I'm not religious but I don't mind religious art. Oh, I don't like tea or coffee. Or nuts. That's about it. I've pretty much loved everything I have received from swappers here!

Just wanted to let you know that Christmas deco you have sent me came to it's owner on time before Christmas. :) I have some decos at home now and if you're looking for new decos, let me know.
