About Me

⚠️⚠️ SPOILER ALERT - I post my swaps on Instagram so if I'm your swap partner don't look at my Instagram page after sign up day or your surprise will be spoilt :) Happy Swapping :)


Hi I'm Wendy,

I love creating and try and make time to create something everyday. I love shabby chic, vintage, elegant & classy and clean & layered. As you can see I love creating a lot of styles. I'm 43 years old and I've been creating since I was 15 from sewing, ceramics, card-making, painting and paper crafts. Now my biggest passions are card-making, altered art, mixed media, soapmaking, drawing and doodling. I take a lot of time to make my items and put a lot of care and thought into them. I've been very blessed to have taught card making and have my work published in an Australian card making magazine but these days I don't focus on these but instead love creating to share in different ways. Share though gift giving, selling and swapping. I'm really looking forward to swapping with people who appreciate the time and effort it takes to create my pieces and to put a smile on somebody's face when they receive some happy mail. I am very much looking forward to receiving happy mail.📬




💗 Light/bright aqua, pale pink, black, any other pink, blue/green colours (turquoise for example).

💗 I love Stampin Up cardstock my main go to colours are Pool Party, Crumb Cake and Pink Pirouette. Not necessarily all together :) 😘

I've learnt to love all colours of the colour wheel but theses are my favourites. So I'm happy to receive any colour items but would be super excited if it included at least one of the colours above :)😍


OTHER THINGS I LOVE in life in no particular order (except my family, they're always first). This list should hopefully give you lots of ideas on what I'd like to receive :) This is not a list of the things I only love nor what I expect to receive but hopefully gives you some good ideas. If you love creating a particular style and it's not on my list that's okay because I ❤️ when time and effort is put into something and are also very aware that it's near impossible to create something that's not you. Knowing you had fun and put effort into what you made me will make me happy.

💞 my family (more details at end if my kids are in a swap)

💕 🌷🌷flowers made in paper, fabric , pictures, embellishments 🌷🌷

💖 gift tags or pictures that are printed with images to use for ATC's and gift tags.

💗 note pads, post it notes

💗 ribbon, twine

💞 my three dogs 🐶🐶🐶

💘 coffee. I can't live without my Cappuccinos daily ☕️☕️☕️

💞 birds, bird houses

💗 shabby chic

💖 vintage

💕 trees - pictures or embellishments or brads or stamped images.

💞 stickers - good quality ones. Themes - birds, flowers, flowers, bird houses, cute insects. Anything that's nice quality I'm sure I'd like it and especially if cute. Not too interested in reward stickers or real pictures of spiders!

💘 Paris themed things

💕 sunshine

💗 bling

💞 glittery things but please don't put loose glitter in envie - makes huge mess :)

💖 Julie Nutting Paper Doll Range

💘Dylusions - love Dyans stencils. If you have any I'd love one traced on white card stock so I could deco it.

💕mixed media (my tastes are very varied with mixed media and love to try new techniques often)

💗 patterned papers especially vintage paper

💞 fabric that would look great turned into handmade flowers. I also love Amy Butler fabrics and when well enjoy making handbags with my fabric stash.

💖gift boxes or bags. Any shape or size. Plain or patterned. I love to use paper bags in my crafting so any party bag favour size in any colour would be awesome.

💘 handbags (on notecards or tags preprinted or embellishments I can use on my cards). I do love sew handbags when I'm well.

💕 high heel shoes even though I can't wear them (lol) but love to make cards with them on so any embellishment would be great.

💗 handmade soap

💞 handmade items. If it shows you've made an effort and it's for me I'd be super happy.

💖 houses - especially house plans, older houses, home Reno shows, display homes.

💘 whimsical things

💕cute things

💗 elegant and classy things

💞 gelato colours

💖 card stock

💘pens especially ones decorated or I could decorate

💕stationary. Especially paper with decos on. Handmade or store brought :)

💗enamel dots

💞 hat pins

💖 pegs - mini, large, standard especially decorated but love plain too. As long as they are new.

💘 chocolate especially milk or white but not a fan of dark 🍫🍫🍫

💕 lace

💗 SMASH book items - I really like SMASH branded items to go in my smash book. Also things like Project Life, washi tape, quality stickers. Please no off cut papers. I don't do junk journals.

💞 rubber stamps

💖 rhinestones

💘 die cut outs. Especially in white cardstock so I deco them myself .

❤️I really love handmade items so if you've made something and would love to share and we are in a goodies or card swap then please send it to me or if you'd like to do a private swap that would be great too :)❤️

📺 TELEVISION - I don't really watch telly these days but if I do I enjoy lifestyle shows like home renos. I've just found the show Arrow and have managed to watch two seasons in a very short period of time and so excited they are filming season 3. Love love this show 😃😍

🎥 MOVIES - my go to these days would be romantic comedies. Anything to make me happy and I'm for it. But don't really watch any atm

📚 BOOKS - I love to read different genres but my faves are romance (modern and historical) and fantasy - fairies, werewolves, vampires.


⚠️ Please be aware my daughter helps me open my happy mail so please don't put anything in that's not appropriate for children eg porn, swearing, violence. ⚠️

👎I like most things but don't like: 👎

👎Receiving packages that haven't had been given much thought:

I put a lot of time and effort into my swaps so I'd really appreciate something made with some time and effort back. I don't expect anyone to make things like I do but showing me you have put thought into my swap will receive a heart. Don't forget the internet is full of ideas and many simple ones that look awesome. I especially love deco envies. I don't mark down if your style is not mine. For me it's time and effort to sending me something thoughtful and when I give hearts. A note to say why you made what you did is a lovely touch and I'd love it :)

👎STICKER SLAPPING - adding stickers is okay if you add extra work with them. So many choices - doodle, paint, collage, cut pics from junk mail, stamping, embellishments. Look on Pinterest for ideas if you need help. To me sticker slapping doesn't show any care went into what you've made.

👎 Wiccan 👎 Tarot Cards 👎 Sunflowers 👎Spiders 👎 Tea of any kind 👎 I would appreciate if you didn't sent any religious mail, thank you for understanding. 👎I would appreciate nothing used or dirty or out of use by date (though I'm sure you wouldn't send those things anyway to a fellow swap botter!).

💗 If you have awesome things in your stash and would like to share and they are in great condition then please share them with me. But please no junk. I chop and change constantly what I'm making and what style I'm doing so one off things are right up my alley.

🏡FAMILY & WHERE WE LIVE🏡 - in eastern suburbs about 30mins from Melbourne Australia in the leafy suburb of Heathmont with my hubby, two gorgeous children Will 13 years and Bella 7 years old and my three little dogs - 🐾 Bluey, 🐾Amy and 🐾Puppy


👧BELLA loves pink, girly, princess monster high, crafty items, cute animals, glittery. She does Calisentics.

👦WILL loves Minecraft, Spiderman especially comics and movies, his xbox 360 and PC. I didn't put him down for this current swap but I know he would really love some happy mail but he's trying to be a "cool" teenager :) so if you could add something for him he would appreciate it, thanks :)

Work - currently don't work due to chronic health issues but am a qualified Primary School Teacher and Beauty Therapist. My creating daily is my saviour from chronic health issues. I guess I should say I'm a stay at home mum as even though my health is not the best I'm always there for my hubby and kids. If there's two things I can only do in a day because I'm not feeling the best is be there for my kids and craft, the rest can wait for another day hey :)
