About Me

Update June 2018 : my last swap was in 2013. I have recently moved from full time work so I now have more time to enjoy swapping and I am looking to get back into some swaps that attract my Attention. I have no preference in how I like to receive postcards, either naked or in an envelope is fine by me.

Due to postal rates increasing I am easing up on swapping and will only be joining swaps that can be sent in an standard envelope. I.e mainly quilt block swaps!

Ooh, somehow i lost my profile! So have to start from scratch again.

Well, I am a single mum, and my daughter is turning 4 on Feb 6 2013. I have a passion for travel and adventure! I am a risk taker! I love city life, but i am currently living in rural new zealand, in a town that only has one shop. Yep life in the fast lane!

The sewing obsession

I love fabric! Sewing is my favourite thing to do and I like to sew every day! My dream job would be a fabric buyer, so i can travel and shop at the same time! I love all aspects of sewing, but my favourite projects are quick gratification ones, so anything small and cute, i love needlecases, pincushions or any sewing related items. I also would very much appreciate pins! Especially small pins or decorative ones.

I love colour! All colours are appreciated, but my favourites are bright and bold, or shabby chic, mint green, pinks, blues, any cute print, there are so many beautiful fabrics out there it is hard to narrow down favourites. I adore polka dot and spots. Umbrellas, bunting, cutesy, fruits, checks, plaid,

All sweet and fun fabrics.

The rest

I always send my swaps, i hate being flaked on, I always rate.

I always check my partners profiles when swapping, and love to send things i know that they will love, i put a lot of effort and time into my swaps. Saying that, if you have a longer list of dislikes than of what you do like, well, I am less inclined to try and accommodate, as where is the fun in that!

My daughter Skylar is 9 1/2 she loves stickers and kawaii, art/craft supplies, glitter and sparkles, hair accessories, ribbons, jewellery. Anything cute, pink and/or purple.

I would use and would love any of the following: fabric scraps - any size, even teeny pieces. Envelopes, stationary, lettersets. Sewing items, trims, buttons, ribbons, lace, Ric rac, felt scraps, anything handmade, pincushions, pins, needles, patterns, craft kits, christmas anything! I love christmas! I have no aversion to sparkles or glitter, bring it on!

I do my best to send my swaps on time, But to be really honest, I don't give a donkeys if you send a few days late, sure some swappers are super strict about this and will rate a 3 if you send 2 days late. I will not. swapping is meant to be fun, relax a bit, life happens and if you can't get to the post office because your car broke down or the busses go on strike then so be it.

Comment: I can't believe it took only 6 days to get to the US from NZ! That's amazing. I love how you went with the blue lace. I have a difficult time doing something different than a pattern.
Response: Wow that is quick! Glad you liked it! I actually received a pillowcase that was quite different to the pattern as well, which made me actually unpick the pillowcase i had made you and redo it!

Merry Christmas Greetings from Canada - just noticed that you are my partner for "Last Minute Gift Swap". It has been a while since we have swapped something. I am looking forward to receiving a gift from you. We had one snowfall 3 weeks ago, now nothing but rain - might be a green Christmas, but I still dream of spending Christmas Day on a beach in Australia with a turkey sandwich for my dinner.

I know ladydy5, that rating really upset me as I actually put a lot of effort into that swap, I asked if I could do anything to change the rating but there wasn't, it made me feel like quitting swap-bot as she had really ruined my good rating, and faith in swapping. Yes I was 2 days late sending so in her mind I failed the conditions of the swap, but really I would never personally rate someone like that and i doubt many would. (only the meanies!)

I was looking at your 3 rating. Wow! is that swapper annal. Swap-bot is supposed to be a fun thing to give and receive things. Sometimes all good intention I send on a date then something occurs and the pickup date is a day later than that. SO WHAT! That 3 you got was ridiculous. Sometime the postoffice is at fault and not the swapper too.
