Hi! My name is Rosie, Iâ€™m 23 and I was born in Surrey, England but I now live and study in Leeds. Iâ€™m a law student by day, compulsive maker of things by night. I love to bake, sew and I crotchet a little. Iâ€™m new to swap-bot but I think itâ€™s a fantastic idea. When my great aunt was alive she would send me letters, stickers and badges from New Zealand, it was so exciting to get a package from the other side of the world. So I'm very excited to join in!
I currently live in a tiny house with my boyfriend but dream of a cottage with a huge kitchen in the Yorkshire countryside. We don't have the room or garden for a dog but my family have a ancient greyhound and a manic lab/spaniel puppy. But we do have a part time ginger cat who likes to visit for milk and a cuddle. Her name is Simba, but we like to call her Number 6.
I nearly always rate as soon as I open, so if you think I should have received something that I haven't rated you for, please let me know. I'll always contact you before rating a 3 or 1. If you haven't received from me please, please pm me before rating and hopefully we can work it out. Thank you! xoxo
If you want a private swap please pm me! I might not always be able to say yes but I'll appreciate that you took the time to read my profile and make the offer!
I take delight in anything naughty, silly, clever, witty, geeky or heartfelt. Handmade is always welcome.
I'm not easily offended so feel free to curse away, the more elaborate the better.

My least favorite colour is orange

My lovely boyfriend loves the idea of swap bot, but as it's mainly ladies on here there aren't many manly swaps for him. So If you feel like sending him a little something he would be thrilled! He likes:
All types of dogs particularly Alsatians/German Shepherd
Mooses (seriously, he loves them)
