About Me

ยจ I live in wonderful Adelaide, South Australia, home to fantastic festivals and wonderful wines - where it takes 20-30 mins at the most to get anywhere. I am a mother to 3: 2 girls (17 & 10) & a boy (16)

For a quick visual overview of what I like, my pinterest boards are always up to date & accurate!

Favorite Crafts

I do mixed media/scrapbooking, stamping, art journalling, collage, card making, wet-and-needle (dry) felting, some jewellery making. I love ATC's.

I Love...

motifs/patterns/crafts influenced by Middle Eastern culture/Turkish/Indian/Nepalese...think Turkish/Islamic tiles (LOVE them), Indian motifs, paisley scripts religious iconography, esp non-Christian, eg Hindu gods mythologies from across the world/Joseph Campbell's work having lived in France, I love anything French...the more obscure the better....

I have always been interested in strong women figures in history/art history like:

Queen Elizabeth Ist anything Elizabethan/Henry's 8 wives Frida Kahlo Jeanne d'Arc/French History

I love anything Tim Holtz & Ranger branded things, stamps especially stampers anonymous, Stampotique, Chocolate Baroque, the Octopode Factory

butterflies peacocks native Australian flora and fauna pandas standard poodles (bigger is better!!...lol) seahorses

I love Schitt's Creek, Umbrella Academy, Lucifer

I love also British Comedy - Monty Python esp

Wishlist

I also like & collect:

Paper napkins for collage vintage photos, ephemera old manuscripts/musical scores old children's books from my mothers era - eg '40's

Favourite Colours

Colours - my absolute favourite is GREEN in any shade/hue

I love ยญombre / gradients I also love any reds, turquoise & aqua I love monochromatic schemes especially vintage whites & creams

nature colours - dusty red, olives, umbers, browns

vintage dusky pinks only - NOT lolly pink

I prefer Shimmer & shiny rather than glitter & bling eg Twinkling H2O's

Dislikes

I DO NOT like & please do NOT send me:

small pieces of patterned paper &/or cardstock- I have tons!!

ribbon

Stickers

Loose sequins/scatters

anything cutesy,

teddy bears

Disney & other licensed stuff

Hello Kitty / Kawaii

bling overload

and PLEASE no magazine cut-outs!!!! I think these are worse than stickers! I have been disappointed recently with some swaps where people have cut out pictures from either junkmail/catalogues or magazines and stuck them on, added a touch of coloured pencil & it's finished. I put a lot more work into my swaps and I expect the same. Thanks

What a cool envie you sent for ATC Profile Surprise swap! I I love the ATC and card! The note you wrote was so nice. I checked out Tiny Tim the Donkey - he is adorable! My two mini donkeys (Rita and Chico) would be a total disaster in my house!) Thanks so much!

Sorry about that first one, still trying to work out how to add images LOL

majicmiss on Aug 12, 2014:

Thank you for the AMAZING WTA!!! So many fabulous things, I LOVE THEM!!!

Hi Belinda. Thank you for your wishes! I'm glad to hear you liked the washi. Postage to Australia isn't more expensive than to any other place, I just break the postage to put various stamps and ended up being too many Haha. And thank you for sending something, I will be happily waiting! Have an awesome day, Kat.

I see you joined the Elephant ATC swap as well! Cool! I love elephants! I bought something for you yesterday in our historic downtown. They didn't have the thing I went after so I'll be going back, but I bought something else to send you. LOL!

Thanks so much for the Aussie Swappers Feb wishes - sooo many goodies. Can't wait to try the cinnamon tea, I have two of their other teas and was curious about the cinnamon - how did you know? xox Kris

MelinaBea on Feb 24, 2014:

Thank you so much for my gift! The elephant stamp is stunning, I actually adore anything paisley too. Everything else was beautiful as well. I must send you something to make up for my crappy gift last month!
