17th June 2018: After being poorly for way too long I was finally cleared as fit to work this week :-) I've missed swapping and you lovely people.. I will oil my swap brain and come up with some ideas for new swaps this week :-) Its good ti be back!
I live in the middle of England and am obsessed with art journals, list journals, junk journals, Moleskine. Journals, Wreck this Journal...
I'm on a mission to make the most of life, and do something every day that makes me happy. Making swaps that make someone else smile gives a good feeling :-)
My love of art comes from 10 years living in London with it's amazing galleries and museums. I worked there as a magazine journalist before switching careers to graphic design, specialising in printmaking and handmade book-making.
I have always believed hearts are for effort, which includes reading your swap partners profile. Random bits of paper in an envelope don't do it for me.
I love stickers as they look great on a journal cover but don't want any cute/teddy bear stickers or kids/reward stickers or anything vintage/flowery. I also don't like things with animals on, just not my thing - probably from growing up allergic to every animal I go near.
My favourite colour changes all the time. I like cobalt teal, turquoise, violet and rainbow at the moment.
For tape swaps, I love geometric, triangles, chevrons, grids, arrows, maps, houses, I have no purple washi so would love that, also love turquoise and teal and any with writing ot the alphabet on.
I like typography, quote postcards or tourist/where you live, triangles on anything. I don't go for anything vintage, flowery or cutesy.
I love magazine articles about relaxation (not yoga or mindfulness) and curing depression and anxiety without pills.
I like hand made prints, cool envelopes with doodles or patterns that you have drawn, (and love stamps on my mail).
I've been making zines since the 1980s so personal zines are appreciated and well loved. I love to find out about people and the secrets that get revealed in a zine.
My crafting hate is glitter. It taunts my OCD by getting where it shouldn't.
I don't do any sewing/knitting/quilting crafts so don't waste your money & postage sending me wool, ribbon, buttons or fabric. Not a clue!
I also don't use die-cut, Project Life cards or random pieces of paper, my house is full of it already!
Please don't send me any tea/coffee/choc drinks, food, sweets or toiletries as I have a ridiculous amount of allergies - chemical, smell and food allergies. I'm also allergic to animal/pet hair and fur. These can bring on rashes, sinusitis, migraines and my nut allergy can make me really ill. And please no glitter! Thanks for understanding :-)
