About Me

Update 28/08/2016: I have been away from Swap Bot for a few months due to some family illnesses. I didn't think I could fit any more deadlines and appointments in my brain and I didn't want to be a bad swapper and miss any send by dates. Thankfully everything is much better now and I'm excited to start getting fun and colourful post again! :)

I live in the UK and have a furry cat friend called Mr. Gilbert Mew. I work in the shop at a heritage museum and volunteer in the archives there and at an arts workshop charity.

Favorite Books

I love reading, especially fantasy and historical fiction. My favourite authors are Scarlett Thomas, Sarah Dunnant, C.J.Sansom, Maria V. Snyder, Patrick Rothfuss, Katherine Webb, Manda Scott, Curtis Sittenfeld, Ben Aaronavitch and I love discovering new favourites.

Favorite Music

Other iPod's make fun of my iPod because of the weird mix of music I have filled him with! I like rock, especially 70's and 80's, folk, pop and singer/songwriters like Newton Faulkner and Ray Lamontagne. I'm not keen on jazz or heavy rock like screamo, but can always be taken by suprise by an individual song.

Favorite Crafts

I have an Etsy shop, Receiver of the Wreck where I sell bags and accessories I make out of recycled stuff. I love any sort of arts and crafts, and studied art and art history at Uni. I like knitting, sewing, cross stitch, origami, collage, drawing, photography and am trying to learn crochet (any help gratefully received!)

Favorite Television

In terms of T.V and film, I love comedy films, anything with Will Ferrell, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Harry Potter, Pitch Perfect, Singing in the Rain, Monsters vs Aliens, Dinner for Schmucks, The Sapphires, Studio Ghibli, The IT Crowd, The Apprentice, Neighbours, trashy reality documentaries (Dog and Beth, Kardashians) World's Strongest Man, anything with Louis Theroux in and Eurovision!

Food and Drink

I am known for drinking tea, especially green and my predictable tea order has become a bit of a joke. I like strong tea but nothing mint or licorice and I don't like coffee :-P I also really like hot chocolate and chai lattes. I like most sweets and chocolates :) However I don't like liquorice, banana, coffee, marzipan or cherry flavoured things. I also don't really like Hershey chocolate (I think because I've grown up with sweet British chocolate!) I love savoury snacks even better than sweets and it would be great to try things from other countries.

Other Stuff

My favourite colours are blues, purples and greens. I love renaissance art and the pre-raphaelites and I know a bit too much about William Morris! I also like David Hockney, Richard Long and art photography especially portraits.

Other random hobbies and likes include; gardening, cooking, hula hooping, notebooks with thick or unusual paper in, fabric, papers I can use in collages, magazines, and fineline pens. Cats, tortoises and garden birds, sea shells, gem stones, nail art, lip balm. For socks I am a size 7UK. I prefer bold or delicate jewellery to sparkly stuff and I like to wear scarves. I have an upper ear piercing which I am trying to get more earrings for!

I love any types of postcards even home made, but especially like ones you get from art galleries and museums showing interesting objects and art. I also like tourist postcards from where they are being sent. I am part the postcard exchange group on Goodreads. I prefer them naked and stamped if possible!

In regards to being sent stuff, I really am excited to get anything especially if you have made it for me! But if I'm being fussy, I don't really like things covered in tonnes of loose glitter (I like it when it's stuck down if that makes sense?!) zombies or gory horror. I am excited to start swapping with you :)
