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.

Tea

I'm not a huge fan of black tea.. red, green and white are good, and I love fruit infusions. Allergic to mango though, not that I can picture someone putting mango in tea!

Comment: This envelope just made my day! Admittedly, it wasn't really my style but going through the pretty papers made me so happy :) Nope! Don't have Netflix (I'm an extreme cheapskate) but stream shows online for free, I don't watch Riverdale but Bob's Burgers is really funny (and free!) Thanks for putting different stamps on too, it definitely made the swap extra special!

Comment: Absolutely loved what you sent. I don't have very many Hello Kitty stickers so am glad I have some more now. Kikki K is one of my fave stationery shops so that will also come in handy. I loved reading your notecard too and will be saving all the pretty stamps on the envelope also. Thank you very much for the awesome swap xx

Comment: Omg I loved this tag, I was wondering were you got your products from, As I love them Libby
Response: Libby, they are from a combo of places - the background papers are Kaisercraft (there's an outlet store that I go to), I think the ephemera was from there too, buttons from Spotlight, glitter dots from Craft Giraffe and the other things are stamped images from somewhere!! Happy to stay in touch and swap supplies with you if you like!

In answer to your mail tag-I would love to travel to London and my favorite actress is Joan Cusack(she cracks me up no matter what role she plays)! Thanks for swapping with me!

Comment: Such a sweet card. I get a lot of garish cards from these coloring swaps. I appreciate that you went with softer colors.
