I am a single parent of two teenagers and I live in the UK. I love to receive post and I particularly like rustic or quirky things. I have discovered that the thing I look forward to most in swaps in getting a brief note from my partner. If you have a moment I'd love to hear about you or the swap.
I like postcards, but unfortunately not keen on touristy ones. Having spent a while sending swaps and reading other people's profile I have discovered that having a like list seems to help other people so I decided to have a go.
Postcards, but arty ones not tourist
Anything retro, quirky, unusual or just plain weird!
Chocolate, cookie dough, brownies
Quotes that mean something to you
To hear all about you
I love stationary particularly unusual notebooks and particularly adore coloured or brown paper rather than standard white. Stripes are also a big favourite as I love patterns. I am learning to organise myself again after a head injury so any organisational stuff that might help you might help me!
Colour wise I like most things, particularly black and white. The only colours I'm not keen on are bright pink and fluorescent colours, but any others are great.
I also love meaningful quotes and so if you are sending me a postcard I would love to hear of a quote or saying that means something to you.
Not a lot really but please don't send any types of tea or coffee even if swaps say to as I don't drink it and neither does anyone in our house. We do however like hot chocolate. Not keen on touristy postcards.
More to the point suprise me. Have a go at trying something you've always wanted to, don't worry about it just go for the wierd and wonderful. I love it!
I like an eclectic selection of music but my favourite is classical music particularly baroque.
I love to read and one of my favourite books was the Time Travellers Wife. I also enjoy books about psychology and how the mind works. Saying that a trashy novel with a happy ending is great.
I don't watch a great deal of tv, but when I do I lie to relax with a series that follows a nice pattern in its episodes so my brain can switch off completely. Favourites are Bones and House.
I am really fascinated with craft stuff but rarely manage to actually do much as I tend to get too hung up over the end result. I am particularly interested in
I live in the UK and postage can be a nightmare. If you don't receive something please let me know before you rate and I will happily resend. I also have some memory problems (due to head injury) so please bear with me.

Happy New Year and wishing you many blessings in 2016! Susie
Welcome! Thank you for joining Color and Light. I hope you'll love meeting and swapping with photographers from all over the world.
Hello. I posted your Fall Dotee today and forgot to mark "sent" until right before heading to bed. I hope you like it. My girls wanted to keep it, lol.
Thank you so much for my wishes from Wishes for Europe. I love everything
Hi this is a part of the "QUICK Happy mail #39" swap. I promised you one of my photographs! I took this in my front yard, it's a beautiful butterfly on one of my butterfly bushes, hope you like it!
Hi there I forgot to say how impressed I was for the zentangle snail notelet...did you search the earth for it!?
Hi Rachael. I'm glad the parcel arrived over the weekend. There's no official way of rating an angel package, but don't forget to rate your 'flaker' partner, so others will know before allowing her into future swaps. Hope this hasn't put you off joining further swaps :) x
I got my Curly Wurly Package today!!! I was so excited I had one for breakfast! :D
Hello Rachael! I received today your great package with Options chocolate, Cadbury bar and kool aid sachets. Wow, that was really nice of you :D And of course it cheered me up a lot!! I think we all need these little joys in the mail box sometimes, don't we? Thank you very much for everything Rachael <3 Soledad
How incredibly rude of me to forget to also thank you for the dragonfly ATC that you spent time making just for me. I'm so happy to have received such a nice package of treats all for me, me, ME!
