About Me

I'm Skeffiboo, or Sarah in reality. Nice to meet you!

The following is a list of some of my favourite things:

  • Gardening, particularly wildlife gardening and Grow Your Own
  • Herbal Remedies
  • Books!
  • Mail/Postbox related things.
  • All teas and flavoured coffee.
  • Coffee/Coffee Shop related things.
  • Currency from other countries, including old and out of circulation coins.
  • Citrus, rose, violet, lavender, cucumber, melon and vanilla scents.
  • Mushrooms (Visually only)
  • Deco Tape and washi tape.
  • Sticky pads & Cute Sticky Page Markers.
  • Gashapon toys & Other Tiny Toys.
  • Felt Plushies, especially handmade!.
  • Skunks, anteaters, sloths & peacocks.
  • Craft Books & Magazines.
  • Cute Snacks.
  • Candles, Potpourri, incense sticks and cones, fragrance oils and wax tarts. Anything that smells!
  • Zelfs, Trolls and Kewpie dolls!
  • Any & All crafting supplies or stationary. I have a serious problem!
  • Gorjuss.
  • Studio Ghibli.
  • Zines.
  • Halloween.
  • I love nature (flowers, foliage, animals, insects, Forests, Ponds and Oceans)
  • Printables & Organisation Aids.
  • I don't really have a favourite colour these days, I more appreciate a nice colour palette, particularly green, blue and gold together (like a peacock!) It really depends on the mood or subject though.
  • Handmade! Ugh, hand sewn, hand drawn, hand painted. I love seeing what other people can do, and it is so special to me when somebody spends their time and skill to make something specifically for me, it's magical! I guess that's why I love Swap-Bot so much!
  • Mori girl, Shabby Chic, Bohemian styles and aesthetics.

I am really interested in Astrology, Crystal Healing, Herbal remedies, Elementals and Tarot. Make of that what you will.

Favorite Books

I love reading! I generally gravitate to historical fiction and anything with a fantasy/mythical twist. I love old fairy tales and fables, especialy those with a dark or twisted edge to them. I adore Phillip Pulman's books and still love reading Robin Jarvis' books, even though I'm probably a little too old for them. I LOVE Kate Morton. I also love graphic Novels. My favourites are Neil Gaiman's Sandman series, Sei and Nightmares and Fairytales but my all time favourite is Tank Girl. :D

Favorite Movies

Some of my favourite films are Pans Labyrinth, Mirrormask, The Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, Moulin Rouge, Waterhorse, Spiderwick Chronicles, Bridge To Teribithia, The Fault In Our Stars, Hocus Pocus, Hell Boy, Super 8, Money Pit, Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, Time Bandits, Tank Girl, Doll Master, Minimoni - Cake Adventure, Orphanage, Juno, 28 days/weeks Later, Moana, Lilo & Stitch, Practical Magic and anything within the MCU.

Favorite Crafts

Argh! I'm not sure there's a craft I don't like! I am very much into papercrafts currently, I am hoping to one day buy a stamp making machine so that my life may be complete =P I love zines in all shapes and sizes, I love making them and receiving them! Some of the zines I have received from senders on here have been amazing and I have treasured them all! I am very fond of mail art also, and adore any post related project such as PostSecret, More Love Letters etc. I'm totaly addicted to pretty paper and cardstock, which I totaly intend to use for crafting one day, when I can bear to cut it :p I love wire work, pottery, painting, drawing, stamping, scrapbooking, making cute little toys and accessories.. I think most of my tastes are more heavily geared towards the cutesy style, but I still like to sit and do a nice pastel picture occasionaly! You name it! :D

Favourite Characters

  • Pucca Club
  • Doraemon
  • Mashimaro
  • Keroppi
  • Little Twin Stars
  • Badtz-Maru
  • Disney Stitch
  • Sumikko Gurashi
  • Rilakkuma
  • Gudetama
  • Ruby Gloom

If it has an oversized head and big eyes, I'll probably love it!

Favourite anime characters : I love Totoro and the little soot sprites from My Neighbour Totoro. Kiki and Jiji from Kiki's Delivery Service. Michiru and Yuuta from Zombie Loan. Cardcaptor Sakura

**Please Note**

It's a shame that I have to write this but I'm finding it neccesary.

My local mail service has seriously gone to the dogs. I swap a fair bit on here and I like to shop online too and I am repeatedly having things delivered to me rediculously late, damaged, opened with things missing or not turning up at all. I am worried that the mail I am sending is going to be treated in the same way so PLEASE, If there is anything wrong with a swap from me, get in touch! I have also had a package left on the front doorstep in full view of the street (this was my brand new mobile phone!!) I also get mail for completely different addresses and I repeatedly get mail which people have paid extra to send as "signed for" and the postman has just put it through the letter box without getting a signature! I am going to start a diary of these things and log a complaint EVERY single time.

I always package things safely and securely. I dont fold things, I would never send something broken or squashed. Most of all, I would never flake!!

If you have an issue with something you have received from me, drop me a message and I'll see what I can do to sort it out for you. I don't want to get bad ratings for something I have no control over. Thanks guys xxx

Dislikes

Hmm, I have some pretty strange dislikes.. *I HATE shrek, and anything Shrek related. *I have a massive spider and balloon phobia. Not that you would send me a spider or an inflated balloon... would you? *I don't like spicy stuff. Not that you would send me your leftover curry either... *I just can't stomache eating mushrooms, but I do find them very pretty to look at! *Disney princess overly girly things. I have my favourite characters, who doesn't? I'm just very fussy when it comes to merch.

Comment: Ahh, thank you sooo very much for this awesome autumn swap! It's absolute amazing and I loved it very much, especially so many things for my sweet tooth. XD Yes, autumn is a wonderful season and today I made some cookies with almont and cinnamon, so the whole flat is now having this delicous smell, while I'm sipping one of your hot chocolates. Halloween is sadly barely known in Germany, but this year I was lucky ad even children were ringing at my door, so I could gave out the sweets I had prepared in good hope. XD I wish you a wonderful autumn time and stay haelthy! Maxi

I would like to angle "I <3 PENPALS" swap for you. I know it is an old swap, but I was reviewing profiles before I have to assign swap partners tomorrow and saw your flakers. Tsk tsk, I hate being flaked on too.

Just FYI, user @laurenvnzl , who owes you a swap from awhile ago, is back online and swapping. Perhaps if you contact her, you can get your swap finally!
