About Me

It seems my mail can take up to two months sometimes to arrive, but I have had mail never make it and am happy to resend. Please always message with any problems - I want to keep my rating good but mostly I want to have happy swap partners!

Oh hey!

I have a burning passion for arts and crafts, being creative, and learning new things. I have a crafting corner stuffed to the brim with lovely goodies that I love sharing and get a thrill whenever I pop something into the post (and also obviously when I open my mailbox to find delightful happy mail!).

So far in March 2021, I've been lucky enough to go to workshops on how to make zines, traditional Aboriginal basket weaving, paper making, and Japanese stab bookbinding!

I've recently started journaling (art / junk style) and love recording my life through writing, decorating (esp. stickers, washi, papers), putting in photos I've taken (I'm always carrying my Instax with me and love taking random snaps), and including random everyday ephemera (tickets, packaging, notes etc.).

I'm starting to make my own zines with topics ranging from my struggles with endometriosis and dealing with mental health issues, to the colours of my nails!

Hello! Welcome to swap bot. You have signed up for my mermaid story zine swap. Is it possible to fill out your profile a little more? While list are great, they don't tell us much about your personality. I do vet my swaps and so do the other swappers to see how reliable everyone might be. It is how we keep everyone happy here on swap bot! :) hope you enjoy the swap bot adventure!!
