About Me


I'm 25, I live in Wales in the UK, with my boyfriend and our daughter, Ffion (Fee-on).

I also have a lot of pets, 2 Cats (Lexi and Tiffa), 2 Rabbits (Sunny and Cher), 2 Bearded Dragons (Pat and Frank) and a Dog (Casey) ... I also have another Cat (PK) and a dog (Daisy) who live with my Mum :)

(UPDATE: I only have one cat now, Tiffa, unfortunately I lost my beautiful Lexi on the 9th August 2014)

I'm very creative, and thought that this would be a great way to get some ideas for projects and swaps...

I love postcrossing too... I have an account there. My user name is Melon1789 on there too...

I also have an Instagram with all my postcrossing and crafts images... My user name on there is littlescrapbooks

Favorite Crafts

Well I have a few...

Drawing, writing, painting, sketching, sewing, Button art, scrapbooking, customising, I can knit in straight lines too (haha), costume making...

I tend to try any new crafts out, I just like creating different things... I went to college for 2 years and University for 3 years studying Fashion and Clothing and then Fashion Design, so I like creating wearable items :)

Favorite Movies

Anything Romantic, Fantasy or Comedy with the occassional Horror:

The Notebook, Memoirs of a Geisha, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Persuasion, Mansfield Park, Emma, Northanger Abbey, Marie Antoinette, Twilight Saga, The Mortal Instruments, Percy Jackson Series, Anchorman, Step Brothers, Trick or Treat, The Hunger Games, We bought a zoo, Life of Pi. I like a lot of book adaptations.

Favorite Books

The Mortal Instruments... The Morganville Vampires... The House of Night Novels... The Twilight Saga... Anything by Neil Gaiman... Memoirs of a Geisha... Jane Austen (all 6)...

Favorite Television

Cake Boss... The Walking Dead... Glee... Under the Dome... X Factor... Strictly Come Dancing... 60 Minute makeover... Doctor Who!... The Game of Thrones... Downton Abbey... Grimm... The Ricky Gervais Show... Extras... A Haunting... My Ghost Story... Paranormal Witness... Ghost Whisperer... Medium... Charmed... Supernatural...


Hobbies: reading, writing, drawing, collecting postcards, arts and crafts projects, watching DVDs, photography, painting, sight seeing, swimming, sewing, beading, decorating, flower pressing...


I've joined a few groups for these, and I've enjoyed making them...

If you are my chosen partner for any of these type of swaps, there is not a lot that I won't like. I just enjoy seeing peoples artwork, and how you interpret a theme :)

Any colours, I love bright, pastels, monochrome... anything really ... I'll just be thankful that you've taken the time to create me some individual art :)

If the theme inspires you to use gore (i.e. zombies etc) I don't mind gore and if the theme requires nudity (i.e. classic art etc) I don't mind that either. But if the theme requires spiders I won't be joining anyway or if the theme inspires spiders please try and be inspired by something else! haha :)

My City

My City is Newport, it is in South Wales, in the UK................

We have a lot of places to visit here in Newport, here is a small list of the most popular places to visit:...............................

Tradegar House (An old manor house and gardens).......... Caerleon Roman Village, Fort, Baths and Amphitheater (A beautiful village with the remains of a Roman Settlement mixed in).......... St.Woolos Cathedral (A very old and beautiful Cathedral that has been around since before the 1800s).......... Belle Vue Park & Beechwood Park (Both public parks with beautiful scenery and walks).......... The Transporter Bridge (A very old suspension bridge that carries vehicles and people across the water on a large metal platform).......... The Wetlands (A nature walk that's all about preserving wildlife, you can see a large range of wild birds there).......... Newport Castle (It's just all ruins now, it's in the center of town and you can drive straight through the middle of it, but you can no longer walk through it as it's unsafe).......... We're also famous for the Chartists movement and John Frost. The main square in town is 'John Frost Square'..........

Postcards and Stamps

For postcards I'm not really fussy, but if it's a profile based swap I like:

map cards, animal cards (cats especially), city skylines, cities at night, beaches, sea life, illustration cards.

Stamps: I love used stamps, and I love receiving loads of different ones on my envelope when possible... I also like everyones used stamps that they would otherwise throw away, I like the images that are on them, even doubles of things are interesting too!

Christmas cards: If you need help to choose a card for me, I would appreciate anything, it's not a religious holiday for me but I respect that it is for others and if you wish to send me a religious card you can! :)


Comment: Hello Helen! I received the envelope you sent me today! Thank you! I'll be sure to pass on the postcard you sent me in the next round!
Comment: Thank you! I'm sorry I didn't rate sooner, I just found the envelope :(
Comment: The cards you sent got here safe and sound - my very first mail from Wales! :o) The heart is for decorating the envelope, and sending a note in a pretty card - thank you!
