About Me

Hey Everyone,

I'm here because I like to craft, I started with flip books, then tried letter wallets, envelope flip books, pocket letters, zines, accordion wallets, handmade junk journals and postcards and so far only one ATC.

I like to try new crafts but like them to revolve around sending a letter. :)

Why I joined Swap-bot

I saw a YouTube video of a lady making snail mail and she mentioned the website. I love to send things to people to lift their day; Happy Mail. I send cards/letters/gifts to my Mum regularly, and to a few friends, however only my Mum sends things back to me, as she really enjoys it. When I heard about Swap-bot I suddenly realised there was a whole world of people that like to do the same thing and I couldn't wait to join.

My Interests: I pick up different crafts and run with them for a few months, always dipping back into previous crafts. I like to film sometimes and upload it to my YouTube channel.

My Likes: Positive things, helpful things, colourful things, useful things.

Me: I am a tall gal, 6'1" and have always felt like I don't quite fit in, from when I was at play-group, to School and then in the workplace. I am the odd one out, but I'm finding my place slowly. I married in June 2018 and my husband and I support each other a great deal.

My Faith: Yes I have a faith, let's just say it is 'with me, in me and for me'.

Anyway, that's all I think you really need to know about me for now, but message me if you want any specifics for a direct swap etc.

Take care and remember 'be-leaf In Yourself' xx

Favorite Crafts

Favourite Colours/Themes: -

Watercolours. Pastel Colours, items with gold or silver pattern. Pink, Yellow, Mint Green, Sky Blue, Peach, Gold gilding - but not limited to these, I love colour! I've started to like the neutral colours that Jordan Clark uses in her blogs, very calming.

Favourite Animals:-

Foxes, Squirrels, Dogs, Stags, Bunnies, Mice.

Favourite Teas/Coffees:-

Standard Tea, Chai Latte, Caramel Coffee, Vanilla, Gingerbread, Cherry Bakewell. I'm not big on fruit teas but I'll try a one-off. My new fav' is Turkish Sweet Apple Tea.

Letters I would like to receive:-

Letters that tell me about you and how life has shaped you to be who you are today, or just how your day or week has been shaping up.

Items I don't have and would like:-

Pink & White Twine, scrap pieces of watercolour paper or unusual paper, small botanical or vintage clear stamps, lace or little material offcuts, cut-outs of colourful birds or flowers.

Pink Twine

Clear Stamps

Stamps on my Post to you

Postage Stamps:-


For some reason Royal Mail Post Offices don't stock picture stamps any more, so please know that if I am sending to you, my stamps are likely to be either the Queens Head or a PO standard postage sticker & maybe one or two picture stamps that I can get hold of through other sellers.

Biggest Hugs Em. x
