About Me

Hi - my June swaps have all been sent terribly late (on July 1) due to some personal issues. Hope you can understand and I hope they all arrive soon!

I don't make the Toilet Roll Art but I do appreciate it!

Travel-loving Australian girl, work in a government cube farm and looking to be more creative every day! I like a lot of stuff, some of it I have remembered to list here - vintage, retro, new, Japanese, Hepburn-esque. I love the colour, texture and graphics of japanese papers. I am at my happiest when in Paris (six visits and counting) and have lived overseas for one year (Orkney Islands, Scotland). I live with my wonderfully messy, vegetarian, mountain-biking long-term boyfriend for whom I make crazy vegetarian food.

I like - confectionery/candy/chocolate from faraway places, stationery, organising (and organisers), reading, coffee table books, Paris, fashion and design magazines, photography, cubism, retro clothing, buttons and button badges, baking, geometric prints, museums, Japan (but not whaling), kawaii goodies, homewares stores, felt-tip pens, penguins, Mr & Mrs Potato Head...

I collect journals, contemporary porcelain, IKEA catalogues, washi, recipes, art postcards, handbags, shoes (lots of shoes) and embroidered souvenir patches from (almost) all the places I visit.

I also like live music festivals, Minnie Mouse, Hello Kitty, Blythe, Jelly Belly's, tins and small boxes, note cards and ATC's. I love colour, especially red, purple and fuschia.

I'm not a fan of modern country music, emo/goth culture, religion, dentists, teddy bears, clutter, chardonnay, lint, my inability to sew competently (I thought practice would make perfect but I was wrong), Star Trek, waste and tailgaters.

I would prefer to not receive religious or spiritual items, tea (black or herbal - won't make it through quarantine), characters such as Care Bears, My Little Pony and Dora the Explorer (no kids in my life old enough for these yet). I also have plenty of candles, body products and lip glosses and balms at the moment thanks to some great swap partners!

I live in Australia so please don't send me food containing eggs, seafood, seeds and treenuts or items made of wood. The quarantine people will take them away...

Favorite Music

Angus & Julia Stone, Ben Lee, Bloc Party, Franz Ferninad, The Grates, Holly Throsby, Howling Bells, Jeff Buckley, Jose Gonsalez, The Magic Numbers, Modest Mouse, Muse, The Polyphonic Spree, Powderfinger, Scissor Sisters, Tegan & Sara, Violent Femmes, The White Stripes, The Cold War Kids, Operator Please, Editors, Regina Spektor, Feist, Ben Kweller. I like a lot of artists...

Favorite Movies

Before Sunrise & Before Sunset, Kill Bill 1 & 2, LA Confidential, Amelie, Almost Famous, ANYTHING starring Audrey Hepburn, most Jane Austen adaptations, Heaven Can Wait.

Favorite Television

Alias, Arrested Development, Buffy, Entourage, Scrubs, Top Gear, Dexter. Just started watching Rome and Deadwood. Don't watch much now that I swap for fun!

Favorite Crafts

Collage and paper crafts, found objects (and recycling), anything involving washi, very simple knitting, brooch making, ATCs. I would love to experiment with Fimo but I am too chicken!

Comment: Thanks for the note on why it was late - It ius all good - under circumstances like that, it is more than reasonable for it to be late - swap-bot is not always the first priority - and nor it should be - life comes first. Having said that, the mix was interesting - I have heard a few of them - still some new ones for me - I will have to see if they irritate me as much as they irritate you!

Response: Hi, I am sorry you have not received your cd. I can re-send at the end of April when I return from Europe - this swap was sent back in January so I don´t know why it has not arrived. Once again, sorry - I am happy to re-send as there was some great tracks on the mix.

Hi. I was wondering if you sent out the cd from the "most hated songs" swap. You still have it marked as unsent (it was due out June 14th,2008). Ratings are due out very soon and I would hate to give you a bad rating
