About Me

Looking forward to not only swaps but friendships with my swap partners. Receiving something special in the mail is something I not only love to give but receive too. People tend to communicate less these days so our mailboxes tend to be empty. Need to feel the love and send it out there also. I am a 54yr old mum with 3 children of my own and 2 stepchildren who came into my life 10 yrs ago. My husband and I are blessed with 7 grandbabies. We enjoy having them over for sleepovers especially when there is more than one. Up until recently I was my elderly mothers carer. So life is busy. I love red roses with Dutch Iris a close second. I tend my garden when time allows. My love of hearts may have something to do with my novel choice too. When my mind allows I am a romance tragic. Feel good stories are always best enjoyed with a cup of coffee. I'm def not a tea drinker!!!!!!!!!! My love of things that sparkle attract me to craft bling also. I love buttons,lace,ephemera,ribbon or anything creative really. I love red, black & white colour combinations. I rarely work in cool colours but will do if swap required it. I enjoy steampunk but still learning how to plan my works around that theme. I also love vintage,shabby chic and anything Christmas. Buttons and charms are goodies I like to receive. What ever you can manage I will be thankful for . Let me know your preferences too. If I have an American swap partner, I've a tendency to enjoy the odd butterfinger. Lol Thankyou for reading my profile. Hope to swap some time soon. Toodles

Favorite Music

I enjoy listening to most music but don't tolerate heavy metal or music that's too pingy. Attending Musical Theatre is also a must. I have seen many of these musicals. Sometimes more than once. I can't resist the temptation to play the piano when the opportunity arises. It takes me back to my childhood. Did I mention I don't drink tea????

Goodies I like

I'd love to receive different note cards as I'm in short supply. Postcards from other countries. Steampunk ideas. Tried and true recipes. Butterfingers!!!! Halloween corn candy. Handmade items especially Christmas. Patterns for Christmas items. I love cardinals although I've never seen them. A cardinal ornament would be the ultimate surprise!!! Instructions for flip books and other crafts.

Mail System

Sometimes our mailing system REALLY is snail mail. Please allow between 4 - 6 weeks for some places. If I’m late in mailing out I’ll let you know for sure. Thanks for understanding.

Comment: Your swap arrived today, and it is such a delight. Thank you for not taking the time to read my profile and not send butterfly stickers :) they are one of my weird phobias and a lot of people send out butterflies.
Response: So excited you like swap goodies. I’m really enjoying sketch & stickers swaps. Not necessarily for the stickers ( I have plenty) but to improve my sketching ability. I always read profiles. It helps me decide what to draw also. 🌺

Comment: Hi Cassie, I got your package today and oh my the postage you paid was so much! Thank you for the sketch, it's so beautiful and I love fairies, so it's going up on my bedroom wall once I'm home in Singapore! Thanks for the extra stickers and I love the angel cards, so beautiful. Don't worry at all about the delay, swapbot has been so much fun for me and something to do with my time while I'm in between life things. I'm actually part Peranakan on my mother's side, so we have lots of those intricate embroidered clothes (sarong kebaya) at home and beaded slippers. Scotland is amazing, I'm in Edinburgh so I would recommend the castle of course, and if you like charity shops and little boutiques, the Stockbridge area has loads! Of course everyone likes going to the Royal Mile and Princes Street for shopping and souvenirs. My favourite cafe is Piecebox, amazing brunch food. I go there almost every weekend! Have a wonderful Christmas :)

Comment: I just got my package today! I love it all! The sketch is beautiful-and Alice is my favorite, as you know. The stickers are so fun-and the extra coloring pages are beautiful-I love the snail the best! THANK YOU!
Response: Yay πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» So glad you like it. I tried to do something you’d enjoy. I was excited sending your mail with the extra goodies but it’s taken a loooong time to arrive. As you can see by my profile June & July arrived before yours. Crazy mail atm. I’m really enjoying learning to sketch.

Comment: Wow, you went above and beyond for this swap! I love the art work! During quarantine I was able to spend a lot of time with my only child who just turned 8 years old. I don't have grandchildren like you referenced in your letter. She's a bit too young for that. I crafted and slept a lot too but I absolutely loved being inside my house for almost 3 months. I'm an introvert so I don't get cabin fever. Thanks for the art!

A little more greenery for you, because you're "fan-cactus" :) -

if you like butterfingers- you need to try a 5th avenue bar! They are delicious and even better than butterfingers in my opinion!!

CherryBlossomLady on May 8, 2020:

Thanks for joining my swap! I have a pen pal in Australia but she doesn't write very often- mail seems to take WEEKS to get to her. I hope you are holding up well!
