About Me

So after a long break I am back and ready to swap! We have moved into a new home and are still trying to get settled down but in the next few weeks I will be setting up some swaps.

I recently got engaged!! No date set yet but I am so excited!

I love seeing stamps from other countries, so if its possible when sending me some thing if you could use stamps I would love it!

''Revenge is a dish best served inky'' =D

Please please please do not send me any thing to do with frogs and dinosaurs. I am petrified of them and I keep getting little bits to do with them. It is in my dislikes but I have to put it here too. Even the cute kind freak me out, all though I do like Keroppi.

I'm Ann-Marie * waves *. I love to crochet even though I am still learning and making altered matchboxes. I'm not the most crafty person but I do try. I have the most wonderful fiance James who is teaching me to crochet. I'd be completely lost with out James, music and my handbag. My favorite colour is green =)

Recently I have gotten into make Amigurumi's and now I can't stop! I love seeing unusal patterns and I am looking for some geeky patterns to make things for James.

Bit of a strange request but please do not staple packages together at the top if your sending me one I've always had this fear that the staple is some how gonna get stuck in one of my fingers.

Oh and its Ann-Marie with out the E on Ann.

I can't angel every swap I host, the money I have is pretty tight. Some I can angel but not all of them. Sorry if this a problem.

I always rate or say thank you for a swap or a tag, it doesn't take long to say thanks. It would be nice if you did the same. Also I all ways put my name and swap on the bottom of matchboxes I make because some one has tried selling one I made.


  • Kawaii things esp Badtz Maru for James

  • Buttons

  • Craft paper

  • Wool

  • Amigurumi patterns

  • Deco tape

  • Kawaii sticker flakes

  • Japanese snacks like Hi Chew and Pocky

  • Any thing Domo Kun and Gloomy Bear

  • Things to do with Ed Hardy or that kind of old fashioned tattoo style.

  • Stationary esp cute writing paper and gel pens

  • Ribbon and other bits that are good for filling up matchboxes

  • I love every thing sparkly, neon and bright

  • I love Spiderman and Batman, The Joker is my most favorite from Batman, I'd love any thing to do with him.

  • I am looking for stripy wool in bright colours as I am making a blanket for James in all different stripy wools.

  • I love fruit tea, any flavor at all. I really want to try some unusual flavors like bubble gum or banana. The only flavor I wont drink is green tea, it has a funny taste. If possible when sending me tea if you can send Lipton herbal orange I would be so thankful!

  • I love any thing to do with cupcakes, it can be any thing from craft items to actual cupcakes lol. Any thing with cupcakes on I will love.

I'd rather not get

I think I am allergic to just orange wool as it makes my hands all red and sore. I dislike milk chocolate most of the time as it is far too sweet. Bootleg Hello Kitty makes me sad. Chip board pieces, some are ok but only useful ones in nice shapes. Nothing to do with Twilight or New Moon either, I just don't get the whole fuss over it. I don't really like the colour grey or brown. Green tea is weird.

Kawaii/cute likes and dislikes

I love any thing kawaii especially Hello Kitty and Badtz maru. I don't really mind if its not a known brand of kawaii as long as its cute but I don't like bootleg Hello Kitty. I prefer to recieve kawaii food with faces, animals are cute but not as cute as the food ones. I love kawaii phone charms, the bigger the better.

I really don't like Rilakkuma, hes just not cute enough for me. I also really dislike real animals in a kawaii way, they are just creepy!

Flaked on =(

Lamira for a desert matchbox from the PF's matchbox tag. Angeled by misstaks- thank you so much.

Rockyhorrorgerri - It was a flickr swap, I sent ATC papers in return for a pink back badge with a moustache on it. No reply to PM's on flickr or on here.

@WeEatCrayons - Pick2 tag, tagged way back in July and never recieved. PMed and left comments. Angeled by @Chinacat . Thank you so much Robin its all so lovely.

Comment: AnnMarie, Thank you so much for my Owl and cute postcard you wrote on. I love those type of postcards but we don't find them here in the states. I love that it came all the way from the UK. I think it's neat sending and receiving from so far! I would love to swap with you again. The Owl is beautiful and my daughter took it from my hands the minute I opened the package! Thanks so so much ;)
Response: I am so happy you liked the owl, I had so much fun making him, I didn't want to part with him lol.
BeverlyBling rated for Cram it full! on Jun 25, 2012
Comment: Many thanks for your very full envelope. Lots of things I can use.
Response: Thank you for the nice rating
Comment: Your swap came in the mail yesterday and I opened it up this morning - don't know how I resisted for that long! I love everything you sent. Seems like we have a lot in common. Your matchbox was adorable and stuffed full of green goodness. I only have one other matchbox, so I'm very happy to have it in my collection. I really love the bookmark and I know just where I'll be using it - I am making an altered art book that is HUGE (500+ pages) and I need a bookmark to figure out where I've left off, since I'm working in no particular order. Charms and beads make me very happy and I'm thrilled to add these to my stash. Finally, the fibers you sent will come in handy since I am running low and in need of some interesting fibers to finish off a piece I've been working on forever. Thanks so much for a wonderful swap. : )
Response: So glad you liked every thing, I found it so hard to pick things, there was so many things I could of sent lol.
