Okay, so I'm Marchy (nice to meet you).

You're either here because you are swapping with me, or checking whether I am swap-worthy, right? Well, welcome no matter WHY you're here - I'm glad you stopped by :)

About Me

I am a Graphic Designer working as an Administrative Assistant. I love my job, and my life is pretty good right now.

Pro-recycling: I like re-using stuff, especially in crafts. I love crafting... just wished I was better at recycling though...

I get an immense joy out of reading your profile, finding a theme I think you'd like and sending you your swap according to that! Mail Art swaps are my FAVOURITES hands down!

Heart Freak

I am a total heart FREAK.

I love hearts, pink hearts, red hearts, embellished hearts, vintage hearts... the list go on... BUT I have an EXTREME dislike for the CLICHE Valentines red and white theme ESPECIALLY (wana die thinking about it) white bears holding a red heart saying 'i love you'...eeeeeeeeeeekkk!! BIG NO-NO.

Otherwise: hearts hearts hearts hearts :) I now collect heart holders and tins :)

Themes & Things I like

  • travel themes...
  • french (I'm trying to learn french) getting better I must admit!!
  • colourful!!!
  • white and neutral...(or gold or grey) though i am obsessed with BLUSH and ROSE GOLD these days!!
  • your favourite theme
  • frangipanis are my favourite flowers
  • other flowers I've come to like are proteas (beautiful) jasmine (the smell! oooh)
  • as chatty as I am, I quite like alone time and quietness to collect my thoughts and to craft :)
  • I'm a container-freak, to my husband's detrament!
  • baby theme - in neutrals and greys (who says everything has to be pink and blue!! hate green and yellow!!)
  • typographic elements
  • learning new things
  • project life etc cards!!! PROJECT LIFE CARDS AND SLEEVES!!
  • my new obsession is lotion and bath samples of luxury brands. I love testing out and collecting them! My favourite eight now is Purple Water by Asprey. Pity I cannot find it in any shops here in SA. Another favourite is Crabtree & Evelyn's Lavender & Verbena which is currently discontinued here.

Like to receive in Swaps

  • planner things!! Happy Planner, A5 Filofax, Personal Filofax
  • lino pads
  • adhesives are ALWAYS welcome
  • ALPHABETS! (stickers, stamps, whatever!!)
  • stamp pads
  • zutter binding rings
  • paper punches and stamps
  • BOOK RINGS (new thing i want to mess with)
  • anything HEARTS, see clause above, lol
  • doilies & lace & ribbon!
  • garlands & bunting!!! (LOVE!)
  • travel themed stickers and journaling cards etc.
  • whatever you'd think I'd like :)

Like to NOT receive in Swaps

There aren't many things I don't like receiving in swaps, but here are they: * fruit-flavoured tea (tastes like warm cooldrink to me) * used or damaged items (of course)

That's about it for now :)

lateset craze

i have a new little bambino, yay, so I'm decluttering like crazy. Now, more than EVER I am PROJEC LIFE AND SIMILLAR obsessed so i can just document life effectively! Please please please feel free to send milestone project life or journalling cards, there are SUCH cute ones out there!!

For the A swap: - ATC cards with the letter A on it (my baby's name starts with A - in blush tones please? - animal themed journalling cards (i'm not sure if this is right - if this is how the swap works... if not, just ignore these :) - A-monogrammed items - apricot coloured or flavoured items - Astros


Thanks for visiting my profile! I look forward to swapping with you!

PS: those who tried to help me add pics to my page, thanks, as you see I didn't get it right. But i'm cool for now about it :)

Ciao for now ;) Marchy


PS: I am experimenting with planners. If you are into Filofaxes and the Happy Planner and midoris, share with me your favourite links and/ sites and tips, I'd appreciate that! I discovered how beautiful GOLD and esp ROSE GOLD items are in these planners!! So excited! Anyway, send those links and tips please!
