About Me

Hey Everyone,

I'm here because I like to craft, I started with flip books, then tried letter wallets, envelope flip books, pocket letters, zines, accordion wallets, handmade junk journals and postcards and so far only one ATC. I'm currently enjoying neutral ephemera.

I like to try new crafts but mainly with a paper craft theme.

Why I joined Swap-bot

I saw a YouTube video of a lady making snail mail and she mentioned the website. I love to send things to people to lift their day; Happy Mail. When I heard about Swap-bot I suddenly realised there was a whole world of people that like to do the same thing and I couldn't wait to join.

YouTubers I watch: -

@thepaperletterblog @shaydacampbell @Softlystudio @JordanClarke @49DragonFlies @karenharrop @themushroommarket @TheSorryGirls (love their room make-overs)

My Interests: I pick up different crafts and run with them for a few months, always dipping back into previous crafts. I like to film sometimes and upload it to my YouTube channel.

My Likes: Positive things, helpful things, well co-ordinated colour themes, useful things.

Me: I am a tall gal, 6'1" and have always felt like I don't quite fit in, from when I was at play-group, to School and then in the workplace. I am the odd one out, but once people get to know me they realise I'm there to help.

My Faith: Yes I have a faith, let's just say it is 'with me, in me and for me'.

Anyway, that's all I think you really need to know about me for now, but message me if you want any specifics for a direct swap etc.

Take care and remember 'be-leaf In Yourself' xx

Favorite Crafts

Favourite Colours/Themes: -

I've started to like the neutral colours that Jordan Clark uses in her blogs, and @softlystudio uses, very calming and minimalistic tones and vibes: whites, creams, light buff browns, glassine papers or papers with interesting textures like homemade paper etc, tea/coffee dyed papers in lighter softer tones, translucent vellum,

I also like watercolours, again in pastel colours, Pastel Pink, Mint Green, Pale Beige/neutrals.

Animals I like: -

Brown Bears, long haired blonde Dachsunds, Polar Bears, Squirrels, Racoons, not limited to these, and my tastes always change.

Favourite Teas/Coffees:-

My new fav' is Turkish Sweet Apple Tea, I cannot buy this anywhere now [sad face here]. Others I like are Breakfaat Tea, Chai Latte, Caramel Coffee, Vanilla Coffee, Cake flavoured Green Teas.
I'm not big on fruit teas but I'll try 'Strawberries & Cream' Tea, Yum!

Dislikes: nettle, licorice, fruit teas or cold teas.

Items I don't have and would like:-

Watercolour papers, or unusual papers even just scrap pieces. Lace offcuts or Vellum. Small neutral toned beads for making paperclips or journal danglies; those tiny beads which stop the larger beads falling off the thread. :oP

Lucrezia rated for EML: A little note #1 on Jul 22, 2019
Comment: Amazing! I smiled a lot opening your package after a difficult day. You went above and beyond with your "little note". Thank you so much, I love everything. I wish I could make such a beautiful, neat and color-coordinated (if this make sense Lol) letters... mine are still very messy. The postcards are a treasure, here they are difficult to find. Btw, it is true, Italians tend to buy or inherit a home.
Response: I am so so pleased it made you happy :) Thank you for letting me know about home traditions in Italy. πŸ˜‡πŸ˜πŸ’“

Hello fellow UK resident :-) Here is a cute little guy for your profile :-)

Hope you enjoy the hot weather due this week. I don't like the heat so I'll be hiding by my mini aircon unit from asda ;-)

Cute Profile #1

Hello! My name is Cherlita. I want to decorate your wall with these cute bears! They are called Milk and Mocha. Those two are bear characters that actually come from a sticker pack in LINE Messenger (and I happen to have the pack). So I want to share with you, and I hope you like it! May your day always be bright~
