About Me

I'm an American expat now living in the UK. I live with my husband, my pug and my daughter Lulu. I've always had penpals since I was a little girl and still feel the same excitement I always got when I get goodies in the mail!

In November 2013, my best friend passed away. This was one of the hardest things I've had to deal with and I shut down--I withdrew from everything as I didn't have room for it in my grief. This unfortunately included Swap-bot. I got several bad ratings because of this. I haven't been back on Swap-bot since then, but it's always been in the back of my mind because I really enjoyed it. I am sorry for my neglect of my swaps and it will not happen again. I love swapping and really want my rating to go up again as it was quite good before November. I hope I am given the chance to prove it.

My warm fuzzies include skulls and skeletons, Halloween, Harry Potter, David Tennant, photography, shabby chic, the colour pink, pugs, unicorns and rainbows. I'm a big nerd and I love literature, sci-fi and the paranormal. I'm pretty crafty as well and love knitting, sewing and scrapbooking.

I live in Hertfordshire, England with my husband, my baby daughter Lulu and my pug, Muggle.

Some of my favourites are:

BOOKS: the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon, anything by Jane Austen or Oscar Wilde, The Secret History by Donna Tartt, Perfume by Patrick Suskind, Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier, the Canterbury Tales, Harry Potter.

I run a book club and always have my nose in a book. I'm always happy to get more books, new or used! My faves are historical fiction, fantasy, horror or any off of this list: http://www.listology.com/ukaunz/list/1001-books-you-must-read-you-die

MOVIES: Velvet Goldmine, Billy Elliott, Vanilla Sky, Signs, In Her Shoes, What Dreams May Come, Love Actually, Harry Potter, Sweeney Todd, Beetlejuice, the Nightmare Before Christmas (if you can't guess, I like Tim Burton), Paranormal Activity, old school horror (Freddy, Jason and Chucky are my faves)

MUSIC:
I have pretty eclectic taste in music but my true favourites are the Beatles, the White Stripes, the Strokes, the Smiths, the Cure, Oasis, the Pixies, Muse, Talking Heads, David Bowie, old school punk

TV: The Walking Dead, Impractical Jokers, the Returned, Doctor Who, the IT Crowd, Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Ghost Hunters, and The Office (before it started to get lame)

MY CELEBRITY BOYFRIENDS: Daniel Radcliffe, Brian Quinn, David Tennant, Jack White, David Bowie, Andrew Lincoln

I LOVE postcards and have about four shoeboxes stuffed full of them. I love sending and receiving cards and am always up for a swap!

What I like as far as postcards go: * skulls and skeletons (especially sugar skulls or Day of the Dead) * anything to do with Halloween * the colour pink * pugs * Anything to do with medieval England (royalty, Shakespeare, castles, etc) * books and literature * paranormal or just weird in general * Sanrio * museums! Any and all, I love them. * anything quirky or kitsch

What I DO NOT like:
* Disney. Hate it. * meat - I'm a veggie! * ad cards * landscapes *comics or cartoons

I love scrapbooks and have tons of them. I'm always after Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings or Beatles clippings. I also like any paper objects that can be used in altered books or journaling, such as unique stamps or stickers, board game pieces, old magazine clippings, scrapbook paper, etc. I'm happy with makeup or beauty products, especially organic ones. I also like jewelry, socks, bookmarks, notebooks and stationary. I like anything vintage, shabby chic or skulls. I do not like anything floral scented and don't care for cartoony stuff.

I'm also always happy to receive goodies for my daughter Lulu. She is 3 and is very much into Disney, Peppa Pig, Barbie and My Little Pony. She loves stickers and books :)

Comment: Thanks for the package - it arrived today, Nov 19. While the content is fine, the 3 rating is based on not meeting the requirement to send by Oct 5. Two delays in sending: Msg Oct 16 said in the mail tomorrow, but not postmarked until Nov 9.

Comment: Sorry to do this but I still haven't received anything and it's November. I'll gladly re rate if I do.
Response: I did send this and I'm sorry you didn't get it. But I have been in contact with you and told you I'm getting another box together. It's quite a big swap with a lot of stuff to collect. It's kind of unfair to rate a one when I've apologised, said I was resending and also kept in contact. You can see from my recent ratings that I'm not a flake.

wunderland on Jun 15, 2015:

hi, i saw your post in the forum and would be more than willing to do a few PC swaps with you and maybe more to help with your rating ... my best friend passed away in 2010, so i know what you've gone through and continue to go through ...

take care,
Ami
