About Me

I am a bubbly, fun, outgoing, alternative person living in Kent in the UK. I love swapping and writing to people all over the world! I live with my husband and son, and my four crazy little ratties! I work for Network Rail in the wonderful world of Risk Management!

I am a loyal friend, and I love to spoil my friends and family, and my pets!

I have swapped for many years, co-founding swap groups way back in the Yahoo! Groups days! I love sharing the things I love with people all over.

I love music, film and TV, reading, and crafting! I think a new obsession is going to be decorating bottles and putting fairy lights in them!

I also love my Lego collection and am forever purchasing more, even before finishing the last one (or two, or three, or four...!) - my current Lego project is Diagon Alley! It took me several months to build my Elf Club House, so this one could be the long game!

I am a proud President of a Women's Institute Group (see my profile website!) and love what we can do for the local community. We are definitely more Tea (read Gin...) and Tarts than Jam and Jerusalem these days!

Favorite Music

I love all different kinds of music; mainly alternative, punk, and heavy metal. Favourite bands are HIM, Kill Hannah, My Passion, Dommin, The Rasmus, Placebo, 30 Seconds to Mars, Within Temptation, Nightwish, Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance, Garbage, Innerpartysystem, Madina Lake, Plumb, David Usher, William Control, A7X, Fightstar, Feeder, Rachel Stamp, Powerspace, Nine Inch Nails, Bon Jovi, Greenday, Jimmy Eat World... the list could go on! I also love classical, and a good bit of John Barrowman!

Favorite Movies

This is another long list, lets just say anything weird, unusual and Gothic is likely to be in here... including The Crow, Sweeney Todd, Saw, The Messengers, The Fog, Pulse... I also have a guilty pleasure for romcoms... current favourites are The Wedding Singer, Wedding Crashers, Bridget Jones.

I love Harry Potter, although am definitely not a Mastermind calibre fan! That would be The Crow!

Through my husband and son, I have developed a liking for Star Wars! I adore a Porg, and have to say I was really into The Mandalorian!

I love Disney films, but not the princess ones... my favourite is Ratatouille! Closely followed by Lilo & Stitch. I also love the original animal-based ones like The Aristocats, Robin Hood, and 101 Dalmatians. Pixar are also great, although I am very out of touch with them now! Wall-E is a definite love!

I also love James Bond, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and a good ol' DC film too!

And for those of you who watch ITV on Bank Holidays in the UK, I love a good bit of Carry On!

Favorite Television

Well, here we go again... Grey's Anatomy, House, The Crow Stairway to Heaven, Twin Peaks, Buffy, Angel, Smallville, Supernatural, Heroes, Six Feet Under, The X Files, The Big Bang Theory, Elementary, The Inbetweeners, How I Met Your Mother, Cold Feet, Queer as Folk, Bottom, The Young Ones, Fawlty Towers, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Vampire Diaries, True Blood, Friends, Sons of Anarchy, Ozark, Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, Californication, Game of Thrones, The Witcher, Dexter, The Mandalorian, Black Mirror, Cobra Kai...

And loads more that I can't remember right now!

Favorite Books

I love loads of different types of books, at the moment I am working through Paranormal Romance by Christine Feehan... and young adult and teen ficition writers like Maggie Stiefvater and Cassandra Clare.

I also love Crime writers like Patricia Cornwell, Harlan Coben, Lee Child, Robin Cook, Seth Marjolis... Also comics and graphic novels, especially The Crow by James O'Barr...

Any books with grisly murders, vampires, werewolves, monsters and anything strange is good by me!!!

Favorite Crafts

I love Papercraft - scrapbooking, card making, art journalling... that kind of stuff... wish I had more time to do it though!! Crystal Art is my latest favourite.

I've recently picked up cross stitch as a total beginner, and love making the knotted bracelets. I fancy trying out Macrame, and one day hope to learn to knit!

I also love digital craft and photography; I have recently rediscovered my love for retro photography and old cameras, and hope to get some new craft projects on the go!


I love to swap:

Stickers, Postcards, Notecards, Craft Items, Finished Crafts, Socks, Paperback Books, Buttons and Badges, Jewellery, Music Memorabilia, Film Memorabilia, Stationary, Post-It notes, Altered Art, Pet Items, .......and probably lots more!

All of these things I am willing to give in return

The short answer is that is it has a Heartagram on it, is anything to do with my favourite music, or my favourite films or tv shows, is ratty or batty or birdy or furry, or black or purple or blue or red, I am pretty much going to LOVE it!!! I love swallows, peacocks, owls, tattoos, erotica, paranormal romance, werewolves, vampires... The list could keep going on and on...!!!

I also love to receive gifts for my pets (rats), they are the most important part of my life at the moment and they deserve treats too :-)

Interests & Hobbies

I am interested in so many things it blows my mind, lol...! I love ecology, conservation, environmental issues, animals and wildlife, rats, bats, crows, cats, snails, science, alternative and historic fashion, gothic culture, punk, paganism, wicca, vampires, monsters, superheroes, geeks, ghosts and paranormal, fantasy, dragons, whimsical things, faerys, witches, tattoos, piercings, engineering, languages, computers, travel to other countries, rare books, swimming and fitness, massage, yoga, colour therapy, candles, museums, art, historical buildings and events, other public holidays... again, I could go on!

I love my music and go to lots of gigs, I also love collecting bootleg and vintage music releases, and any music and band memorobilia! I love reading, and love comic books... I craft, I go to Rat shows, and I love to swap, and write short letters! I am an Avon rep in my free time which I love!

Response: I am glad that you like them, and I hope you can use them :-) It's done with plastic canvas, just like usual tapestry, but the canvas is easier to work with! I love it, there are so many things you can do with it :-)
