Please send a private mail if you have not recieved anything which has been promised to you. Please note items may take a bit longer as Im currently housebound and have to wait for my carers to post items.
I have not been well recently and have been finding that I cant do that much - though need to accomplish something, so would like to join a few swaps that are easier to accomplish.
If anything is late or doesn't arrive please let me know as I ask my carer for proof of postage so I know when things are actually posted.
I am based 2 mins from the sea in Southern England. I used to love walking along the promenade in all weathers - when blustery, snowy, drizzly and fine weather, something I really miss doing at the moment.
I dont have a garden so love having plants and beautiful fabrics, papers and prints to look at. My favourite colours are pink, purple and lavender. I also love flowery fabrics.
Enjoy papercrafting, recycling, upcycling, (basic) sewing, stamping, self confessed button horder. I like making shabby chic flowers out of fabric and paper.
I am a spiritual person and would like to recieve (any) religous items in the swaps as long as they are sent with love. I have friends from lots of different religions and always need resources and ideas.
I love watching and reading manga, anime and cartoons. I was very much into care bears, smurfs, thundercats, flumps, moomins when I was growing up - all the 70s and 80s animation. Now I like Ghiblee stuff as well as a lot of other anime. My favourite anime films are Pom Poko, Grave of the Fireflies, Kiki Delivery Service and Ponyo
I am not a smoker and prefer items from a non-smoking household - but if I do recieve from a smoking household it will just be "lavendered" for a time before I use it.
Please note that most of my items would come in recycled packaging. I would also encourage people sending swaps to me to use recycled packaging that is worthy of the postal system.
I would like to recieve handmade/upcycled/ recycled items as well
I dont have the patience for decoupage or iris folding - but wouldn't mind recieving completed cards etc that incorporate them.
I can angel for email swaps and for UK paperbased swaps that are flat mail - though not kawaii/hello kitty items. I love getting the items together and have that warm christmassy gooey feeling when preparing an envelope for someone. Unfortunately I can't offer angelling for packets or overseas due to postage budget.
I would like to do mainly UK based swaps as I have been stung too much by international postage.
Here is what I can offer:
rubber stamped images and sentiments
(Anything from the international swap list)
Please note that I prefer UK swaps because of postage costs, but if I do swap international - this is what I offer:
UK/Maltese used postal stamps
origami shirt embellishments and origami butterflies and foxes
vintage (real pre 1980s) greeting cards
Stamped images and sentiments -black permanent ink or embossed
Recycled greeting card images -trademarked/copyright or non-trademark (good for ATC or private cards)
Peel offs - gold/silver alphabet
Themes I love: flowers, butterflies, dragonflies, fairies, angels, mythical creatures, unicorns, dragons, religous icons (all religions)
Colours I love: Pink, purple, lavender
Cultural embellishments, stickers, stamped images or ribbon ie Welsh dragon, Spanish flamenco dancer, Irish dancer or shamrock, French Eiffel tower etc
For my Uganda project I would like to recieve nativity christmas cards, religous Easter cards, Mary and Jesus items. I would appreciate any pictures or prayer cards.
Items from all religions - sent with love. As I can only read English - an English translation would be very helpful on any items with writing on.
Crochet flowers - all colours to go with my flower loom/ material brooches, these mainly go out for the Uganda project, as they help to hide and mend torn clothes.
Wooden or chipboard embellishments
Patterned ribbon - I have a lot of plain ribbon.
Buttons - I love the look and feel of different buttons. These also go onto the Uganda project, making up sewing kits for orphanages, schools etc.
Beads larger than 3mm - this can be from your mixed stash - as I love sorting!!
small 5g/10g wool balls (must be fluffy or eskimo type or multi-coloured). I use them in my cardmaking and for tags and bookmarks sent in my charity boxes.
Pretty pink fabric/pillowcases (not hot pink)
Handmade ATC with inspirational quotes, though no neons or fluoscents or stripes, spots or chevrons.
Christmas/easter/household ornaments/handmade items - especially crochet/knitted/metal/wooden (the crafts I have not accomplished yet)
Flower, animal and religous postal stamps - as they are to be used for magnets etc, would prefer ones that you can see most of the image.
Would love to recieve handrawn images of angels, fairies, or ghibli anime
Love to recieve other handmade/recycled/upcycled items made by you
Web/Blog links to inspirational quotes, inspirational craft images, craft tutorials, images for angels and fairies
Anything horror, halloween, skulls or the like
Gingham, stripes, dots and zigzags (please do not send these as i cant look at them without my eyes going funny)
Please do not send me paper or card packs/sheets as I have plenty - unless it mentions it in the swap requirements.
No food swaps thank you. I dont wear jewellery or makeup. Would prefer if you don't smoke over items you are swapping.

As I can get forgetful - this is a reminder for me on tags/swaps to still send out and ones waiting to be recieved or rated.
