Hi everyone :)
My name is Lauren and I am a primary school teacher in Melbourne, Australia. I have a Yorkshire Terrier and he is my fur baby.
I follow a keto diet, so I don't eat carbs or sweets :P But I do love to eat cheese and drink tea. One of my favourite stores is T2 (it's a tea store in Australia) I love trying all different sorts of teas, especially your favourite ;) Tea swaps are some of my favourite on swap-bot.
Please note: I have a late swap on my dash. "Share Your Country #7" is a part of a series of swaps I host, and unfortunately my partner is in Puerto Rico which is not accepting mail from Australia. My swap is addressed and ready to go, and will be sent as soon as the post between our countries opens up again.
I love creating things, in particular sewing and working on my art journals. I have a TON of paper craft and art supplies so I thought it would be great to have a use for them with some swaps.
I hope to create 50 or more craft projects in 2021.
As well as crafting, my hobbies include gardening and reading. Each year I am trying to produce more and more food at home - this Summer zucchinis were a big winner! This year I have begun saving my own seeds to sow next time around.
I love to read in the evenings and one of my favourite authors is Peter Benchley - I'm always looking for his books in op shops. I first read Jaws a few years ago, and now I'm hooked! I also love Terry Pratchett books, and my all time favourite series is Harry Potter - I'm currently listening the audiobooks narrated by Stephen Fry
These are some of the things that I would love to receive in happy mail and wishlist swaps. Although honestly I appreciate each and every thing that is sent to me. I will usually be able to find a use for something, or be able to share it with someone who would. I also don't mind if what you send has been partially used, for example a sticker sheet.

My favourite tea that I've received in a swap was Taylors of Harrogate Lemon & Orange Tea, I have no idea where to buy it, so I would love to receive it in a swap again if that's possible ^_^
I am working on a little project inspired by a couple of books I've read where I collect joker playing cards. So if we're ever in a swap and you find you have some lying around your home, I'd love so much to receive it to add to my collection. Thanks in advance x
I'll keep adding them as I think of them ^_^
