About Me

PLEASE DON'T SEND ME ANY MORE SWAPS. I've fallen foul of a set of really nasty circumstances and am just trying to keep myself afloat. I'm trying really hard to send out all the swaps I owe, and I'm not joining any more. I feel awful that it's had to come to this, but everything is just too hard right now. Truly sorry to all.

Hi, I'm an 18-year-old Student living in the North of England. I live with my mum, stepdad and two younger sisters (Annabel, 15, and Beth, 4). I also have an older brother (Gavin, 23) and a nephew and a brand new baby niece (Malachi, 5, and Kate, 6 months on Christmas eve.!).

I share my house with 3 cats and a dog, all with silly names: Jacques, Tulula, Sydney, and Holly, the dog.

I am hoping to go to University in September to study Psychology. This will be a personal triumph for me, since I have struggled with health problems (CFS/ME) for 3-4 years now and I consider myself truly fortunate to have found a way through all my schooling and exams and to actually be able to go to uni!

My dream home would be one full of kitty cats with a warm fire and as much yarn, paper and general craft stuff as you could possibly want! And tea. Lots of tea. I am a tea fiend :D

Favorite Crafts

I love to knit - I knit everywhere and my wool stash is overflowing! I'm a pretty novice knitter, though. I also enjoy making bookmarks/bookstrings, sewing, scrapbooking and making envelopes and paper.

I would like to learn how to..

Do quilting, bookbinding, make ATCs, speak another language fluently, knit on DPNs/circulars (I'm only on straights at the moment), crochet, draw, make soap, make candles.


  • Tea: Nordqvist Tiger's Daydream
  • Season: Autumn
  • Colours: Emerald green, deep reds and blues, silver.
  • Foods: Pasta, fish.
  • Chocolates: Peppermint creams, especially the Hachez ones. And rose creams.
  • Smell: Sandalwood

Favorite Books

Anything by Neil Gaiman. I like to read memoirs/biographies but I also like fantasies. I'll read pretty much anything. I'm not into romance/chick-lit.

Favorite Movies

Batman Begins, Cube, Dark City, True Romance, Withnail and I, Fight Club, The Jacket, Jacob's Ladder, Equilibrium, 3:10 to Yuma, The Prestige, The Orphanage, Pan's Labyrinth... I could go on. I quite like psychological stuff and horrors and I like foreign films.

Favorite Music

Alkaline Trio, Andrea Bocelli, Neutral Milk Hotel, Alice in Chains, Manic Street Preachers, Regina Spektor. I'll listen to anything once.

Favorite Television

Friends, How I Met Your Mother, anything history related, anything crafty. Desperate Housewives, House, Dragonball Z, Sailor Moon, FullMetal Alchemist, Buffy, Gilmore Girls, The Big Bang Theory, 8 Simple Rules for Dating my Teenage Daughter...

Yes, Please!/No, Thank you

Yes, Please! :

  • Nice postcards.
  • Handwritten letters.
  • Cute pictures.
  • Stickers!

Hey there. I just wanted to let you know that my Complete Surprise swap package may be a couple days late...the post office closed before I could get to it Friday, and I could have sworn it was open Sat, but it wasn't when I went by. But I'll be mailing it first thing on Monday! I'm terribly sorry for the lag.
