About Me

Hi all! My name is Sarah and I'm a fun loving Aussie in my 20s. I'm an avid tea drinker, book reader and crafter. I have an Honours degree in English Literature, as well as a Bachelor of Writing, and I love all things literature/reading/writing related. I'm a huge fantasy/sci-fi fan and love Doctor Who! I'm a Christian who loves to share my faith, but enjoy hearing about other beliefs, or am ok keeping my beliefs to myself for those who prefer.

Likes + Wishlist

  • Favourite colours are pastels - baby pink and blue, lilac, peach etc and jewel tones - emerald green, maroon, mustard etc
  • I love almost every kind of tea such as chai, black, peppermint, pomegranate etc. Please note I am allergic to ginger and thus can't have a lot of chai or spiced teas (But if you can find ones without it, I'd love them!) - I also like hot chocolate and white hot chocolate sachets
  • I love vintage items, real or reprints such as postcards, tags, images etc, and especially like steampunk and Victorian feel items
  • I absolutely LOVE the 1950's! I like 1950's style pop art, especially Roy Lichtenstein, as well as the Domestic Goddess/man of the house style art
  • I like fantasy creatures such as dragons, fairies/fae, mermaids, dwarves and elves.
  • My favourite animals are big cats (my favourite are snow leopards), birds (my favourite are fairy wrens) and woodland animals like foxes, wolves etc
  • I love washi tape
  • I love journal cards and project life cards
  • I like pretty, embellished stickers
  • I would love to receive stamped images to use in various crafts, especially simple line art ones that I can colour in - I love gorjuss stamps and prima princesses :)
  • I don't mind ephemera if it's something I can use in my crafts
  • I would love to receive pockets or envelopes of different sizes, big or small, store-bought or handmade
  • Cut outs and pages from children's books are awesome!
  • I also like music/score pages, especially vintage ones.
  • I have a sweet tooth so anything chocolate or lolly I'm sure to like (just not coffee!)
  • Pretty much anything paper-craft supplies - stamps, distress inks, card stock/paper, envelopes, bling, twine, grab bags - I love it all =D
  • I'd love any gelli printed paper. I don't mind if it's good sized pieces, homemade envelopes, or just scraps
  • I'm a bit of a geek, and a sure to love anything geeky - check my book/movie favs and fandom section for more details

I've recently gotten into swapping postcards. I'll like anything you send me, but I do prefer artistic designs rather than touristy/cityscape/landscape. I'd love a postcard sent naked, or a few blank ones sent in an envelope so I can get a collection to pass on in swaps. I also like free postcards with artistic images that I can use in my smash books

- Tea
- 1950s
- Steampunk - Wizard of Oz and/or Wicked
- Alice in Wonderland
- Beatrix Potter - Hamilton
----> I want to make an art journal with my favourite book, movie and musical quotes and images so anything from the list above or from my movie/book/musical favs is appreciated.


  • I don't drink coffee
  • I hate blood and gore
  • Please don't send me anything satanic or 'dark' e.g. images such as pentagrams or of devils
  • I don't really like things with skulls on them
  • I prefer patterned paper over a heap of plain colours =)
  • I don't celebrate halloween
  • I celebrate Christmas, but please note it is summer here in December, so no snowmen please! I also prefer Christian themed items over santa etc
  • Sorry to repeat myself, but I'm allergic to ginger, so please try to avoid sending me anything with ginger in it. - If you're sending tea I'd prefer an ingredients list, especially if it's something spiced.

I 'borrowed' this from someone else's profile who 'borrowed' it from someone else because it is relevant and something I did not think about... thank you @BlueBirdBella and @Siouxx05

If you live outside Australia, it's not a good idea to post seeds/plants, shells, soil/sand, tea with fruit pieces, incense, dried/pressed flowers, raw nuts/seeds, any animal products such as raw hide, feathers, teeth, bones, any wooden items. All of these sort of items will not be allowed through Australian customs and immigration. Sorry :(


I though it would be a good idea to list some of my obsessions for geek-specific swaps (LOL!) This is in no way an extensive list, so if you have any questions PM me!

Avengers + Marvel Comics
- Favourite characters include Dr Strange, Loki, Groot, Iron Man and Black Widow

DC Comics
- I adore everything about the Arrowverse, with the OG Arrow being my favourite. I love Arrow/Oliver, Felicity, Shado, Yao Fei and the Magician

- My favourite Doctors (in this order) are David Tennant, Matt Smith and Sylvester McCoy
- Donna is my favourite companion
- The Weeping Angels are my favourite enemy

- My favourite sailor scout is Mars, although it's hard not to love them all
- I adore Sailor Moon and Tuxedo mask together, and the characters in general

Battlestar Galactica - Starbuck and Apollo - enough said ;)

The Hunger Games
- Katniss and Gale all the way ;)

Response: So glad you like it! Thanks for the heart :)
Comment: Ahhhh I'm sorry for rating a little later than usual—I just wanted to wait the two weeks so that I could give you a heart for your swap! You definitely deserve it, and I wanted to thank you for giving me such an amazing ATC with one of my favorite video game characters 😭💕 I was really happy when I first received it around my birthday, and it honestly made me smile when I seen that you picked Jin!! He was one of my favorite characters to play as back in Tekken 6 when I was kid (though my all-time favorite was Alisa!), and seeing him on the ATC really brought back memories of how I would always pick him because I thought he was really cute (because yesss I 100% agree this man is so handsome 🥰😂 I had a crush on his uncle Lars though, but Jin was definitely up there). Thank you again!
Response: Eek! I'm so happy you like it. Thank you so much for the heart and the great feedback <3
