About Me

I am a crafty nut who has an array of fabrics, trims and buttons from Melbourne and Japan and look forward to a swap or a few hundred... It gets kinda addictive... I love Japanese fabrics & trims and my favourite colours are green and red. I also love vintage fabrics, trees and birds. I try to recycle fabrics where possible. My list of 'I like': COLORS: Green (esp. mint, moss & aqua) Red, bright colors. Combinations: dusky pink w/ olive green, red with aqua, grey with pink, green with anything… STUFF: japanese fabric, vintage fabrics, , zakka, hedgehogs, owls, birds, trees & leaves, patterns, bright coloured polka dots & stripes, ,notecards, greeting cards,stamps, ribbon, fabric covered vintage buttons and old wallpaper…

'I don't like': purple, anything Victorian style, religious matter & icons...

My daughter Indigo is now 10 (oh how time flies...) and her birthday is 15th December. She is crazy about glitter, papers, birds, squirrels, Hedgehogs, being independent, stickers, Letter writing sets, papers. She would be excited to receive anything in the mail! Especially with foreign stamps. Does anyone know have a penpal for her???

Favorite Music

Mainly chick tunes; Missy Higgins, Adele, Aretha Franklin, Tracy Chapman, Tori Amos, Crowded House, Compilations of funk/jazz and my daughters pop preferences have found their way to my vocal chords on many a road trip! Many Australian bands too...

Favorite Movies

Where to start... Whale Rider, The Castle, The Big Blue, Betty Blue, Bridget Jone's Diary, Dirty Dancing, Footloose, Pretty in Pink, all the 80's classics. I am easily addicted to sets of tv series.

Favorite Television

Offspring, The News, Cooking shows, Underbelly, Six Feet Under, Greys Anatomy still! How to get away with murder, Highlander, and am in dire need of series recommendations!

Favorite Crafts

Japanese.... also sewing, jewellery, knitting, screenprinting etc. Must have busy hands...

Favorite Books

Anything by: Haruki Murakami, Milan Kundera, Banana Yoshimoto, Yoshimoto Nara, Tim Winton. Nan Witcomb. I adore Japanese craft books...and many other craft books.

Comment: If I could give infinite hearts, I would! Without any doubt! Deb is the most thoughtful, brilliant swap partner I will ever have :D Genius! She wrapped everything in beautiful papers (of course, which I'm keeping for my crafting) and she really picked special items thinking about me! ♥ (Those sparkly buttons... If I was a button, I'm sure I would look like that!) I'm really surprised and amazed, and very lucky she swapped with me! :D I L O V E D everything! Every thing is exquisite :) Her talented daughter crafted a keyring charm for me and it's so awesome ♥ I want to carry it everywhere! (Thank you so much for spend your time crafting something for me, I :D) I feel really lucky indeed! :) Deb even ordered something online for me that still didn't arrive - But will edit this to write about it :D So, ohmy, it was like opening xmas presents and I'm still spechless and sure I couldn't express all my feelings here. Thank you so much, dear Deb, for always being so nice and lovely, and for being the best swap partner!!!

Comment: Wow! What an amazing parcel. I'd tell what my favorite is...but I love so many things. The little mushroom charms are just darling! I had so much fun opening each special package. I love the ribbon, the paper, the handmade tags (that I don't want to use, I want to keep) - I could go on and on. Thank you for taking so much care in putting it together. I look forward to using each piece :)

Comment: I remember leaving you feedback for this before swapbot changed over, but I see it dissapeared! This was a great swap, I loved the recipies. In fact, I have made one of the "David Suzuki" cleaning recipes - what a neat idea to send those :) Thanks so much!

Thank you for the extra items for my son, it was so nice of you to think of him as well. He's away with his aunt at the moment, she's taken him to legoland today and he won't be back till tomorrow but I know he'll love them.

Oh! I wish I could give you a heart! Thank you for the unexpected surprise! I got it right after I hit a mean old man's truck, so yeah! I needed it! And you're a lovely swap recipient, too! I felt warm and fuzzy when I got your rating!

Oh cool! I am responsible for your first heart! Oh, the little things that thrill me :-) Thank you again for the fabulous fabric postcard. A truly international effort with Japanese fabric, New Zealand artist and all the postal employees on the way to the US!
