About Me



Mail is slow - please be patient with mail arriving to you. Do not hesitate to send me a PM for any queries, I am more than happy to listen and act in a fair manner! I really appreciate communication so don't be shy if you have any issues with receiving the item or the swap itself! Please do not rate me a '1' without communicating first. I am more than happy to resend swaps to you/fix the issue. Thank you so much! :)

For ratings: I truly hope others will rate in a timely manner. Please also check that you have hit โ€˜save ratingsโ€™ when leaving a rating as it wonโ€™t go through if you donโ€™t AND check my profile page to make sure the rating has submitted. Thank you so much and thank you for being my partner!!

I rate all of my swaps immediately after opening (within 24 hours of receiving the swap in my mailbox or front door) and I pledge that I will continue this.

Hi everyone! My name is Annabelle and I am 33 years old. I live in Australia. I live with my partner and our baby girl, Clara, born in August 2021.

I love cooking, food, crafts and discovering new things! Purple is my favourite colour! I love dogs and animals and nature! I write my own poetry and stories as well. I love meditation and fitness and mindfulness is very important to me. I am also addicted to Pinterest!

I do not have any allergies.

I have a likes/wishlist and dislike list below - however please note that I am very open to trying new things, so don't feel that you HAVE to send something from my likes/wishlist. Just as long as it is not one of my dislikes of course!

Thank you so much to everyone who has sent me a swap or RAK - I have truly loved them all! I truly appreciate the time and effort you have put into sending me something through the mail!

Favorite Music

I listen to a wide range of music - I am always up for discovering new music.

Favorite Books

Any romance novels, cookbooks and magazines (beauty, food, health, meditation/mindfulness). I really love writing poems and stories. I have really been interested in journal swaps - I feel like writing and being creative this way is a form of meditation. I love filling up an empty journal!

Favorite Movies

I am not a big movie buff, but I enjoy any romance or comedy movies.

Favorite Television

I am not a big television watcher - I prefer watching YouTube clips about food, nature, crafts or anything else that catches my eye!

Favorite Crafts

I am always up to creating any crafts, but I actively make dreamcatchers and various types of journals. I also make pocket letters and flipbooks. I really enjoy paper crafts!


  • Anything floral (obsessed! I LOVE flowers).

  • Anything animal themed, especially dogs. I like turtles as well.

  • Anything handmade (especially Pocket Letters, Flipbooks and Tag Flips).

  • Address labels with my name and address on them.

  • Dreamcatchers.

  • Anything that is purple.

  • Food products (exceptions listed in dislikes below). I enjoy trying foreign food products. Please make sure that any food products are in their original packaging. I like savoury / sweet / sour food items. I also don't mind receiving healthy snacks or snacks that are vegetarian / vegan. However, I do not have any dietary requirements, so I am very relaxed and willing to try pretty much anything!

  • Chocolates and candy/lollies.

  • Coffee sachets.

  • Hot chocolate sachets/mixes.

  • Tea (please only send plain green or matcha tea, plain black tea, plain white tea, chocolate tea, caramel / salted caramel tea, mango tea, lemon / lemon and honey tea, apple tea, watermelon tea, lime tea, peach tea, jasmine tea, coconut tea or China rose tea).

  • Recipes and food magazines from around the world.

  • Kitchen accessories.

  • Anything with a cupcakes theme!

  • Maggie Holmes products.

  • Martha Stewart products.

  • Tim Holtz products.

  • Steampunk products.

  • Fashion items such as jewellery (particularly earrings for pierced ears and anklets), clothes, scarves and makeup (I love red and pink lipsticks). I also love scented body oils.

  • Craft items/stationary - stickers, pretty coloured paper, origami paper, card stock, embellishments, diecuts, journal cards, letter sets, wooden stamps, acrylic stamps, any other stamps etc.

  • Tombow and Copic markers.

  • Enamel pins.

  • DIY kits.

  • Items that a primary (elementary) teacher could use in the classroom (as I am a teacher). I know a lot of people write on their profile that they don't want teacher stickers, but feel free to send them to me! All I ask is that they are good quality. The students I teach are obsessed with scented stickers so if you could get them, that would be amazing!

  • Positive quotes and inspirations, poetry.

  • Beautiful pictures.

  • Astrology (my Zodiac/Sun sign is Pisces, Moon sign is Libra, Ascendant/Rising sign is Pisces).

  • Tarot / Oracle card pack.

  • Amethyst crystal.

  • Souvenirs from the country you live in (postcards, maxicards, keyrings, snowglobes, etc.).

  • Any meditation or relaxation items (for example, face masks, eye masks, hand masks, foot masks, self-care books, magazines, etc).

  • Beach/nautical/island/tropical/water themed items.

  • Forest/nature themed items.

  • Bicycles and parks.

  • Health and fitness products. I love exercising, eating well and good health for my body, mind and spirit, so anything related to those would be fantastic!

  • Outer space/astronomy themed items - I am obsessed with the stars, the moon and planets, so beautiful. Anything with a star chart on it would be awesome to receive!

  • Cute stress balls/squishys.

  • Scented or unscented candles.

  • Cute and nice smelling hand sanitizers (can never have enough of them especially as a teacher!).

  • Coffee mugs with interesting/fun designs and quotes

  • Washi tape (either full rolls or samples).

Dislikes/Unneeded Items

  • Licorice or anise flavoured items.

  • Food that is mint flavoured (exception: mint flavoured chocolate is amazing!).

  • Candied ginger or any other ginger flavoured product.

  • Sultanas and raisins.

  • Food products that contain alcohol (as I do not consume alcohol).

  • Marzipan.

  • Celery.

  • Any tea not mentioned in my likes/wishlist above. I highly dislike Herbal tea, Chai tea and Earl Grey tea.

  • Food or makeup products that are past their expiration date, use by date or best before date.

  • Nail polish or any other nail products.

  • Any bath products.

  • Used products and dirty products.

  • Anything with a very strong smell, as it makes me feel unwell.

Comment: I wonder if you read profiles. I state I dislike cutesy and crafty items. I love post cards, etc. You might have sent one post card or something that shows me where you live. A coin of the smallest number, something that shows me you live in Australia. An article from your newspaper would have thrilled me.
Response: Hi Betty, thank you for your feedback. The swap didn't specify that it was a profile-based swap, but I am sorry you didn't like what I sent. Let me know if you would like me to send another envelope or a small package - I would love to delight you! Take care and happy swapping, Annabelle xoxoxo ๐Ÿฅฐ
