About Me

I would describe myself as a creative dreamer and aspiring writer.

I love literature and storytelling in general. When I was young, I used to try to get to Narnia through the back of my wardrobe. Yes, I am that special.

A lot of my friends find me very strange because I'm a big fan of anti-heroes and 'silver foxes', especially Severus Snape/Alan Rickman (I was absolutely gutted when he passed away).

I'm currently in the middle of a career change; I used to be a teacher but it got way too stressful! I'm now exploring other career options and trying to work out what my purpose is!

I also have a stationery fetish (especially inspirational postcards, washi tape and stickers) and love anything related to home organisation tips and ideas.

I absolutely love sending and receiving letters, and - though the internet has its perks - it really saddens me that letter-writing is becoming a lost art. Who just wants bills and junk mail on their doormat?!?! I'm thrilled to have found this hub of like-minded people and can't wait to see how my swap-bot adventure unfolds!

Favorite Music

This has always been a tough one to answer because I like such a broad range of music... show tunes, Christian music, Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, Eminen, Katy Perry, P!nk, Twenty One Pilots, Maroon 5, Adele ... The only thing they all have in common is that I sing to them very loudly in my car!

Favorite Books

Harry Potter, Wuthering Heights, Of Mice and Men, Lolita, Frankenstein, The Shack, The Book Thief, The Chronicles of Narnia, almost anything by Ian McEwan

Favorite Movies

All of the Harry Potter films (Snape...mmmm...), Labyrinth (I might have a weird crush on David Bowie in this one), Never Been Kissed, Goonies, The Dark Crystal, The Pianist, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

Favorite Television

The Walking Dead (Is it wrong to have a crush on Negan?), Outlander (Is it wrong to have a crush on Black Jack Randall?), The Big Bang Theory, Sex and the City, Desperate Housewives, Friends

Favorite Crafts

Scrapbooking, journalling, collage, mixed media, drawing, painting, inks

Extra Random Stuff

Fave colours: green, blue, pink, teal

Fave animals: giraffes, elephants, dogs, horses, dolphins, peacocks, owls

Fave places: New York and York (UK)

Fave scents: flowers, fruit, candles, books

Things I love to receive: washi tape, stickers, inspirational postcards, anything Christian themed, sweets/candy from other countries (no nuts please. It's ok if it says it MAY contain nuts because pretty much everything says that nowadays), tea, face/hair masks, nail stickers, anything Harry Potter related or literature themed. Pocket letters always make me smile, too.

Allergies: nuts, hay and animal hair

Hello. I'm guessing we have the same fetish, I have tons of stationary items and I am still constantly buying more. My favorite colors are also pink and teal. When I was younger I had a dolphin collection. I hope to see you in the swaps.
