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.


Update - May 2017

It seems some mail that I sent at the end of March has either not made it, or is travelling very slowly. If you haven't received something PLEASE send me a message before you rate so I can resend the swap. I apologise for whatever has happened to this mail - it was definitely posted!

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!
