About Me

Hi! I'm a 30-something single girl from Brisbane, Australia. I love all things writing, crafting and stationery, although totally acknowledge that I am still learning when it comes to some crafting skills. My favourite colour is purple and I love anything with stars. This seasons obsession with printing tropical fruits on everything also makes me happy :)


It seems like one needs to state a little personal disclaimer:

I enjoy the process of creating for people and I put some effort into making my swaps and meeting the requirements. I appreciate others doing the same :)

If you don't receive a swap from me PLEASE PM me before rating! Australia is a long way from some places and things can be slow and/or get lost. I'll gladly resend should you not receive something after a few weeks have passed.

If I can't send something on time I'll PM you to let you know - this will be extremely rare as I won't commit to swaps that I don't think I can complete on schedule.


Update - January 2017

I had some personal issues in 2016 and I have attempted to contact anyone affected that did not receive swaps so I can send them. I am back and excited to be swapping again. If you have any concerns please PM me.

Things I am into

I have always been a massive history buff - anything from ancient civilisations through to medieval times is where my real passion lies, but I have recently been enjoying learning some modern history, especially through podcasts, my favourites being 'Stuff You Missed in History Class' and Dan Carlin's 'Hardcore History'.

I'm also fascinated with religions - their origins, their stories and how they are interwoven with secular history and human development.

Favorite Books

My current favourites are the Jack Reacher books by Lee Child, The Power of One by Bryce Courtney, The Daughter of the Forest Trilogy by Juliet Marillier.

Generally I like a bit of fantasy, a bit of action and a sprinkling of chick lit to keep me entertained on holidays.

Favorite Television

Netflix mad - currently watching Jane the Virgin, How To Get Away With Murder, Parks and Recreation and X-Files.

Recently heartbroken because Star-Crossed and Reckless were cancelled after one season.

Long time favourites include The West Wing, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Dawson's Creek. Will happily binge these for days!

Favorite Music

Lots and lots and lots but my favourite band of all time is Lifehouse, closely followed by Sister Hazel, The Script, Train, and U2.. and a lot of indie stuff that no one has ever heard of. Also I love country music - don't judge!

Postcards

I love funny, cartoony things. Also literary postcards with quotes etc. I'm a total word nerd. I prefer not to receive blank tourist postcards.

Comment: Your poor postcard really went the rough way to get to me. There was a small tear in the side and at some point it it got bent in half and rain drops on the side with writing. I could still read it okay and through all that it still made it to me. I think it was nice, the kids look like they are having a great time body surfing on a board and I am sure I have never seen a little critter like the one on the front of the board. Thank you.

Comment: I wish I could give you more than one heart, Sarah! Thank you for making my afternoon a lot more entertaining -- from the gorgeous envelope (and that adorable cloud Air Mail sticker :), washi, postage, and writing paper to your beautiful handwriting, colored inks, and thoughtful, humorous answers! I want to write you a letter in return. Hope you are having a good week!
