About Me

I love to craft but I wish I was more prolific! I am hoping Swap-bot will spur me on! My favourite thing is papercraft, particularly cardmaking. I have dipped my toes in the seductive waters of scrapbooking and it felt good! I also crochet somewhat, but I cannot knit to save myself! It makes me a little bit sadder every day!

An obsession with cute

Ok, so I am 29, I am a teacher, I have a mortgage and a husband. I also have the right to never give up my right to cuteness. I know the term is "kawaii" these days, but cute is one of my favourite words. I was 6 years old when I got my first Hello Kitty bag, and from then I have always had an eye for things of that ilk. I have even considered a "Cute or Death" tattoo. Not really. But maybe though.


  • All things Kawaii
  • Colourful Yarn
  • Stationery (memo pads, notebooks, LETTER SETS!)
  • Stickers (but I don't really use stickers in my cardmaking),
  • Badges
  • Rainbows (I love all colours!)
  • Beads
  • Care Bears
  • Pound Puppies
  • 80's kids cartoons
  • Printed paper for papercrafting,
  • Buttons!
  • Ribbon galore!
  • Cupcakes
  • Food with a face! (And I'm a vegetarian!)
  • Flowers
  • Owls,
  • Chocolate and sweeties!! (Mint Muskateers are my fave american candy)
  • Cookies,
  • Cute hair clips,
  • Photographs (taking and seeing!)
  • Cutesie woodland stuff (squirrels, toadstools etc)
  • Foxes
  • Deer
  • Postcards,
  • Dogs (all dogs, dog mad!)
  • Teacher stamps/stickers,
  • Writing/receiving letters on lovely writing paper!
  • Pandas
  • Cute bees and ladybirds (ladybugs depending on your location!)
  • Rabbits
  • Supercute bags
  • Handmade items

My favourite characters...

I love all cute characters but my faves are

  • Kuririn

  • Bad Badtz Maru

  • Deery Lou

  • Monkichi

  • Landry

  • Pandapple

  • Pata Pata Peppy (he is super hard to find)

  • Anything hamsterish but especially San-X hamsters. I loved my space hamster stationery and it is now almost depleted!

  • My current new love is Kireizukin Seikatu (the little San X racoon) so adorable!

Not so keen on...

Anything with babies on it, most disney stuff (except Bambi!),I'd never heard of Diddl but I don't really think he is cute - sorry! Neon things! Nothing too gothy - I like my colours too much! Oh and I'm not religious. That's all I can think of for now, I'm easy pleased!

Great job! I was going to wait until Christmas, but I didn't think it would be fair to make you wait that long for a rating. OK and my curiosity got the best of me too! Thank yo ever so much, and Merry Christmas!

Comment: Hi Laura, thank so much for the parcel... it really brightened my day! I had to let my husband eat most of the goodies (I forgot to write in my profile that I'm on a funny diet for arthritis, not much sugar allowed... I did have a little bit though!) I loved the eyeshadow, put a little on the same day, matches a scarf I just bought perfectly. Glad you're keen to come to NZ it is pretty special over here, if a little backwards in some ways, it's very beautiful... and people are laid back on the whole. I've been to Scotland, my mum is from Glasgow, Dad from Stirling - they enjoyed your postcards & the tablet too! I'm living at home just now. Anyway, thanks again, have a lovely week. Moira P.s Can't seem to work the heart rating, it won't let me click there... I'll try again later.
Response: I am so glad you liked everything! You are pretty Scottish then by the sounds of things! I used to live in Glasgow, I love that city! Laura x
