About Me

I'm 44, I live in North Spain, but I'm originally from England. I have an amazing teenage daughter and a wonderful boyfriend, I also have two dogs. I love all things crafty and I'm addicted to Pinterest!! I love to read, draw, play silly games on my phone and I enjoy eating out. I love the colour red.


• Patterned paper/card

• Ribbon

• Stickers colourful, cute, anything really!! (not too childish)

• Non touristy postcards (I can't seem to find any here!)

• Washi tape

• Unusual alphabet stickers

• Tags (plain or decorated)

• Buttons

• Hearts

• Metal dies (new or unwanted)

• Anything that's felt

• Letter sets

• Tea (everything)

• Art especially pop art

• Ephemera (any type)

• Rubber or silicone stamps/ ink pads

• Cactus


• There is nothing I dislike, especially if someone has taken the time to organise it and post it out. It will be loved!!!!😉 But please don't send anything religious.

Favorite Books

I love to read, nowadays I read books on the kindle app, but I love paper books better!! I mostly read romantic comedies, bit I do like period dramas and mystery books too. I'm a huge Harry Potter fan!!!

Favorite Television

My TV tastes are more or less the same as my books. I've recently finished watching Poldark, Outlander and Anne with an E, I also love films and series with a twist, ones that make you think. I really enjoyed the German series 'Dark' and 'Snow piercer'.

Favorite Crafts

Omg everything!! I love pattern paper, envelopes, stickers, stamps ...the list is endless!! Some things like stamps, ink pads and postcards without places on are difficult to find here. I love making things from Pinterest from bookmarks to bracelets.

ATM I'm making boxed letter sets.

Favorite Music

I like all kinds of music, but I mostly listen to pop. Queen are an amazing band, who I have grown up listening to. Meatloaf was the best concert I have been to. The last concert I went to was Morat, who are a Spanish singing band

Comment: Thanks for the teas. I know the Hornimans brand from our holiday in Spain a couple of years ago. And I am very curious about the Pompadour chocolate. Have a lovely summer!

Hello! Sorry it took me awhile, I'm hearing for the leave a comment swap! I have two dogs too, one is Jericho and the other Killian. Like you I enjoy period drama books (and tv too!) Because I am a huge history nerd!
