I love music, both listening to/and creating. From rock/alternative though to electronic/dubsteb through to jazz/classical.

lilspotteddog rated for What can you make with #24? on Aug 19, 2012
Comment: OMG! OMG! OMG! Can you tell I love it? That handmade mini book in the matchbox with its separate signatures is sooo cool. I am so taking it to school to show my students. It is unbelievably well made and the case is so beautiful. Plus, I now know what "gaffer's tape" is. For years whenever I've read those words, I had no idea what a "gaffer" was. Thank you so much for the great swap and the nice letter.
Response: Thankyou, I'm delighted that you like it! It was a joy to make :) I hope your students like it too, It would be great if it inspired someone :) iz x

Oh WOW! You are so nice to RAK me these things! I am soooooo happy for the McVities! I loooove the. Notepad, but I have to say icky on the Marmite. Definitely an acquired taste. I've tried it twice, and it tasted better the second time around. Hehehe! Can you give recommendations for using it? Better still, I think I will the webs to find uses for it. I'm thinking I'm taking it to school and putting it in the lounge for adventurous souls to try!

Thanks again so much. And yes, we will definitely arrange another private swap.
