About Me

Hello from Ireland!

I love to craft, read, watch films, playing with my puppy and walking in nature. I enjoy travelling and having time to relax!

I find crafting very therapeutic as I have several ongoing mental health issues as well as health conditions.

I love being in nature and am blessed to live by the sea.

I work in the field of dementia care and find it fascinating and fulfilling.

I am part of the LGBTQI+ community. I am prochoice. I believe Black Lives Matter. I support indigenous lives. I know that not all disabilities are visible and have several invisible disabilities myself.

I always rate and always send so please contact me if something doesn't arrive!

I love receiving...

I like these items and themes:

  • Washi tape

  • Vellum paper, embossed paper, papers with metallic patterns or elements, handmade paper with flowers in it

  • Wood mounted rubber stamps. I've a collection of Black Milk Project ones!

  • Stickers of themes I like

  • Ephemera

  • Old vintage photographs of ladies, children, gay couples, animals (original photos or high quality reprints are both great!)

  • Pastels and muted colours

  • Rose gold

  • Flowers and leaves

  • Foxes / otters / rabbits / deer / sea turtles / fruit bats / woodland creatures

  • Butterflies and moths of all kinds

  • Naturalist themes (esp. with spooky overtones) - preserved butterflies, animal bones, feathers, dried flowers. Folklore oddities and real life chimeras such as jackalopes and chimera cats!

  • Mystic/Esoteric theme

  • Gothic, spooky theme (Think "a walk in a haunted woods under a full moon" rather than characters like Frankenstien/Dracula or the more cartoony/kiddy imagery)

  • Nature connected spiritualism, the seasons and the elements

  • Art Deco patterns

  • Traditional Japanese nature - cherry blossoms, bamboo, sakura flowers, waterlilies...

  • Tasteful female nudes, especially vintage, and figure studies of female, trans or nonbinary bodies.

I would rather not receive...

I'm not fond of:

  • Postage stamps (I have too many!)

  • Architecture

  • Historical or war based items, stories, or articles

  • Transport - trains, cars, etc.

  • Modern leaflets/magazines cut outs/photos/maps

  • Religious iconography, including angels or cherubs

  • Modern (1970s to present) fashion, clothing and makeup

  • Post it notes

  • Neon colours

  • Children's/Kid-ish items

  • Planner, organiser or alphabet stickers

  • Male figures in illustrations or portraits / photos of men

  • Christmas themed items esp. old fashioned Christmas imagery

Favorite Crafts

I love to craft - ATCs, wax seals, ephemera, story prompts and happy mails are favourites of mine.

I've a sweet tooth!

Let me know if you'd ever like to receive anything unique to Ireland!

I love receiving sweets/candy from around the world!

Yummy: Honeycomb, milk chocolate, Haribo, sour candy, salted caramel, toffee, cola bottles, watermelon sour patch, chocolate pretzels, Ferrero Roche, pretzel/peanut/brownie M&Ms

Icky: Hersheys brand, spicy/hot, liquorice, coffee flavour, liquer/alcohol, dark chocolate, coconut, banana

Comment: I LOVED everything you sent me. WOW! the ATC is amazing and so good, I can't even figure out how you made it. And the little metal crosses, etc - simply cool. I have never seen anything like it. And the little tag type piece of art is wonderful with the teeny tiny roses on it. What would you call it? Love it!
Response: Hi! I'm so glad you liked everything. I'm not religious but thought you might appreciate the crosses. Always happy to send items of faith to those who practise. The tag is based off the style of an old fashioned photo slide. You can place a picture in the frame or use it however you wish! I used vintage wallpaper to make it. If you'd like to know how I made the ATC send me a message and I can explain. Happy for it to be a mystery too though if you prefer. Thank you so much for rating.
