About Me

I'm a Scottish lass, mum of two girls 13 & 16. We have a golden retriever called Cooper. (and no I'm not into dog things)

I work in an infant school (age 4-7) in a specialised unit for children with learning difficulties. (and I do not need school stickers :).)

I love the seasons and what the calendar year brings, in January - Burns Night, though in Feb, I'm not big on Valentines.

March/April - the arrival of spring, flowers, blossom and Easter. April is also my birthday month.

Summer - means more time at the beach, picnics, bbq, days out :)

Sept, Oct and November - Autumn, love this season and then Halloween, being a Scot, the true meaning of Halloween.

I love Christmas and all the that it brings, Advent, mince pies, Christmas pudding, cake, cards (vintage, winter wonderland, a card that reflects where you are from, owls, reindeer, traditional) Panto, mulled wine, Family and Friends.

Favorite Books

Here be Dragons and everything else by Sharon Penman.

Crime and thriller novels

Harry Potter

Anything by Jane Austin

L M Montgomery - Anne of Green Gables

Harry Bosch

Lord of the Rings

Narnia books

Northern Lights Trilogy

Peter Pan

Grimes Brothers

wish list

cote d'or chocolate - milk, pecan, fruit & nut I love a chunky chocolate and happy with any type of nut.

other chocolate - I do like dark

washi tape - samples or rolls love love love (on the look out for bright pink , rose gold, copper and dark green, yellow, black and white.


book pages old and new (some cantonese or mandarin written paper would be lovely, but I love all languages.

music sheet paper

doilies (rose, white, pastel colours, red, orange and beige would be great, I have plenty bright pink, turquoise at the moment)


used postage stamps

postcards (I'm currently collecting Elsa Beskow months of the year postcards - preference sent blank)



die cuts

really anything by Tim Holtz

stickers that I would like to receive - seasons, botanical, birds, people. I'm a fan of Me and My Big Ideas and open to a variety of their stickers. I also like Stickii stickers and I lean towards the vintage style.

seqin and enamel dots

La Dolce Vita Stickers

Classiky labels or something in that vain.

Sakura pens 05 08 in black

glassine bags/paper


My favourite colours:

Turquoise, mint green, teal, pastel pink/green/blue/gray, neutral colours, rose, autumn colours,

Christmas colours: Red, teal, copper & gold

I think because I'm such a seasonal person I find my colours change as the season's change.

No thank you...

TEA, TEA and TEA as I really don't drink it, coffee is my thing.

though I love to cook, I have no interest in recipe cards.

please no plastic washi.

I do love a piece of chocolate and would rather a small quality piece over quantity. In regards to sweets (candy) if it's a little extra to pop into the mail that's fine but I will always hope for a piece of chocolate over sweets.

No thank you to gum.

cute stickers of any kind, I really do prefer nature stickers but plants should not have faces on them :D

I have no interest in foot products at all.
