About Me

** I have moved! My address here has been amended to reflect this ^_^ **

Alt text

Hiyas, I'm Tysha. I'm a slightly daft, dragon-lover from Wales. I live with my partner Anthony and I'm mummy to three little lionhead bunnies, Zelda, Midna and Link.

I arrived on Swap-bot to trade postcards but then I found tea bag swaps and now I'm totally addicted to them. I love tea!

If you receive something from me with my Swap-bot name but no swap name it is a gift or RAK.

(And a quick note about my join date and ratings, after I signed up I ended up too ill to swap so I didn't actually start swapping until 2011. Whenever my health gets too bad, I put a hold on my swapping which is why there is also a large gap during 2013/14. This is, and has always been, my only Swap-bot profile ^_^)

Tea is LOVE!

I'm happy to receive ANY flavour of tea, I'll give anything a go.

I'll only drink individually, factor-wrapped tea bags. Please do not send me loose tea or self-wrapped bags.

I collect the empty tea envelopes, so please do not stick down tea bags, it leaves tape residue on them which damages the envelopes :(

I'm happy to do private tea swaps and I usually have quite a long list of teas you can pick from should you wish.

I am allergic to chocolate, but I don't mind receiving chocolate-flavoured teas as I can make them for my partner

Makes Me Happy List

To help with profile swaps I figured I ought to make a list of things I love :)

Dragons (anything dragony is a sure-fire way to win my heart)

Teas (individually, factory wrapped)

Neatly opened empty tea envelopes.

Tea-related stuff (postcards, stamps, stickers)

Bunnies (but not live ones please, 3 is enough for me!)

Sweets/candy, but not chocolate.

Pin badges.

Washi or decorated tape.

Stamps Vs Postage Labels

I know a lot of swappers here prefer pretty stamps on their incoming mail, but for me that is rarely an option :(

I tend to print my postage at home, rather than go up to local post office. My local P.O. is a small one inside a convenience store and tends to print off sticky postage labels anyway, it's rare for them to have beautiful stamps, as they tend to only keep the definitive (Queen's head) ones.

As I tend to sign up for quicker swaps, there simply isn't time for me to get to the main post office in Newport, in time before the deadline.

I always do my best to meet all swap requirements INSIDE the envelope, and I hope people won't rate me down for not sticking on pretty stamps on the outside when they are NOT part of the swap requirements. (Of course, if it is part of the swap requirement, then I just won't join that swap!)
