I live in the middle of England and am obsessed with art journals, list journals, junk journals, Moleskine. Journals, Wreck this Journal...
I'm on a mission to make the most of life, and do something every day that makes me happy. Making swaps that make someone else smile gives a good feeling :-)
My love of art comes from 10 years living in London with it's amazing galleries and museums. I worked there as a magazine journalist before switching careers to graphic design, specialising in printmaking and handmade book-making.
I have always believed hearts are for effort, which includes reading your swap partners profile. Random bits of paper in an envelope don't do it for me.
I love stickers as they look great on a journal cover but don't want any cute/teddy bear stickers or kids/reward stickers or anything vintage/flowery. I also don't like things with animals on, just not my thing - probably from growing up allergic to every animal I go near.
My favourite colour at the moment is purple. I also like cobalt teal and turquoise.
For washi swaps, I love geometric, triangles, chevrons, grids, arrows, maps, houses, I have no purple washi so would love that, also love turquoise and teal and ones with writing on.
I like typography, quote postcards or tourist/where you live, triangles on anything. I don't go for anything vintage, flowery or cutesy.
I love magazine articles about relaxation (not yoga or mindfulness) and curing depression and anxiety without pills.
I like hand made prints, cool envelopes with doodles or patterns that you have drawn, (and love stamps on my mail). Any personal zines are appreciated and well loved. I love to find out about people and the personal/secrets that get revealed in a zine.
My crafting hate is glitter. It taunts my OCD by getting where it shouldn't.
I don't do any sewing/knitting/quilting crafts so don't waste your money & postage sending me wool, ribbon, buttons or fabric. Not a clue!
I also don't use die-cut, Project Life cards or random pieces of paper, my house is full of it already!
Please don't send me any tea/coffee/choc drinks, food, sweets or toiletries as I have a ridiculous amount of allergies - chemical, smell and food allergies. I'm also allergic to animal/pet hair and fur. These can bring on rashes, sinusitis, migraines and my nut allergy can make me really ill. And please no glitter! Thanks for understanding :-)
