About Me

December 28 2021

Even though I’ve been super careful, I’ve managed to get Covid. My whole household has it too. I am feeling pretty sick, so a couple of my swaps unfortunately are going to be late.
We are in quarantine for at least 10 days. I have let all my swap partners know and they have been very lovely about it. Hoping we all feel better soon. Please stay safe everyone, this is not fun😢😷

July, 2021

Just a note. Mail seems to be pretty slow at the moment. Please be patient

Hi there, It has been a pretty hard journey. My eyesight is not what it was, but at least I’m now not in as much pain as I first was after surgery. After quite a few setbacks I think I am now ready to do one swap at a time to see how I go.

Thank you all so much for your understanding

May 29, 2019

I have to once again have eye surgery. This time on my ‘good’ eye. The surgeons are unable to tell me when I’ll be able to see again.. very scary...

Surgery is beginning of July so I will not be joining anymore swaps. Please keep me in your thoughts whilst I recover, which could take up to a year assuming all goes well.

Will miss you all whilst I’m away.

20th August 2018 Hi, After a fantastic trip to Canada and Alaska in May/June 2018. I kind of fell apart. I was back in hospital for two weeks and I’ve had issues with my eyesight. So I have had to stand back from SwapBot 😢. I am truly hoping to get back into swapping soon.

Hi, My name is Ros/Roslyn.

I live in Sydney Australia

I am married and the mother of 3 children. I love making ATCs and I loved patchwork, but now my eyesight is not good enough for this so much now. I’ve a room full of material. Decluttering is in my future.

I also belong to a wonderful Aussie/NZ online quilt group.

My twins turned 29 in November and my eldest son is 33 and he got married in April 2013. And lives not too far away. He and his wife had their first baby,. A beautiful girl on 11 Sept 2017

My only daughter was married in February 2015 and they both lived with us for 3 years but now are in their new home in Nov 2015 . They had a beautiful daughter (3 July 2016). She has now had another baby girl 4 September 2019.

So now we have three gorgeous granddaughters to spoil 💖💖

My youngest (son) works in IT and lives with us.

We also have 3 Cavalier King Charles Spaniels whom I love. A ruby girl called Pippa is 4 she is a real snuggler. She is Aunty to brothers, Tavish, a Blenheim, a gentle nervous soul. And Chance, a tri colour- he is our little devil,- if something has been eaten, stolen or a hole dug, we know he was the instigator lol. Just as well he is cute like all of them

I haven't worked for a very long time, since I was 26 years old, after an eye operation went wrong, but I try very hard to keep occupied with my crafting.

I had my left eye removed in November 2011. I have a prosthetic eye now and I believe it looks pretty good.

I will always do my very best work - slow but I get it done on time.

Update 26 July 2014

After many operations and problems with my eye over the past couple of years. I am very much hoping the last surgery will have fixed everything.

My hubby and I went on a fantastic trip to Europe in 2014. Now I have the travel bug lol. We also went to Canada and Alaska with a short stay in Seattle in 2018. Fabulous..

I am not into kiddy things or anime.

Please no postcards unless in a specific swap. I don’t collect them.

Also not big on Halloween. No skulls, gore etc.

Unfortunately recently I have lost my sense of smell, so scented items are not the best.

I'm allergic to peanuts so no thank you

I also haven't been able to drink coffee since I was pregnant many years ago

Tea is not allowed to be imported into Australia so please do not send any if you live internationally, But I love Earl Grey.

Flakers - please if you are having a problem let me know I promise I wont bite....


I have discovered the addiction of ATC well all paper crafts now

So anything to do with them gladly received.

Dresden trim is so hard to get in Australia so if you have any spare, I would be thrilled to take it off your hands ❤️

I love anything with a bit of glitter. Just love a bit of sparkle :-).

I am particularly fond of anything vintage. - charms, pretty buttons, Lace, Ribbons.

I am into shabby chic and Victoriana.

My dogs are my joy and keep me company so love all things Cavalier King Charles.

My favourite artist is Thomas Kinkade. Such beauty that he painted

Cling Stamps, paper punches etc and Tim Holtz things are always special.

Also love Christmas. Angels especially .

Favourite material collections are soft pastels, and florals, but I love bright hand dyes as well

I like to think I am fairly easy to please :-) My favourite flowers are pretty much all the spring ones anything scented. Love Rose and Orchids.

I'm a chocoholic lol, especially the dark kind though most chocolates are welcome. Including hot chocolate. If you are in Australia my favourite tea is Earl Grey.

Favorite Books

I love mainly historical romance and all the Elm Creek books.

Also love fantasy fiction like Harry Potter, and the Erragon series.

Lately into mystery/crime The Fens Series

(Characters) Harry Dresden, Martin Scarsden.

Because I can't see very good now, I listen to audio books on audible


I do not like flakers

I will always do my swaps. If you do not receive yours PLEASE contact me first before giving me a bad rating. The post can be wonderful at times but then again it can also be shocking. I will re-send if needs be.

Not Rated - I have contacted these people on numerous occasions 😞

Response: Gee I’m glad I did that then. I do try to send most of my swaps in some sort of protection just for that particular reason. I’ve received swaps ruined because of rain (do have a better letter box now, but still). Those robins are very pretty, we are so lucky to have such lovely birds. Take care

Comment: Thank you so much for all of the goodies, it was well worth the wait :)
Response: I’m so relieved this parcel has made it to you at long last and that you like what I sent. Thank you
Comment: Ros, I just love these! Firstly, you sent more than the swap required (which is absolutely lovely), and they are just so cute. Thank you for always being a wonderful swap partner!
Response: I just loved making these embellishments I just kept making more and more 😀. I’m very happy you liked what I made
Comment: Well, I know what you said...but I love these! Quite honestly, they are actually a better size for my smaller journals. I really had a difficult time with mine...the molding paste kept slipping under the stencil, making a mess. I had to make so many, just to end up with a few! I love the ones you made for me...and I also love the sweet extras you always send!
Response: I tiotally understand I’ve quite a few that just didn’t work either. I thought it was just me lol. Appears that it’s not quite as easy as the lady made it seem…. ❤️🦋
Comment: Ros, you are right--this is an absolutely beautiful image! I have seen these birds at the San Francisco Zoo. . . I just love the way you embellished the card, too. All that gorgeous pink, and Dresden, too! Thank you so much for an absolutely beautiful card to add to my collection.
Response: I’m very happy you. Liked the pretty flamingo,, I’ve always loved watching them at our Taronga Park Zoo as well..🌸
Comment: Such a lovely lady! I have a special fondness for pictures of ladies who are facing away from the camera or artist; there’s something a bit mysterious about that pose, as if we caught her by surprise. I love it!
Response: I’m so happy that all my swaps have decided to make their way to you across the mile. I’m thrilled you liked this one she was so pretty I though too.
Comment: Oh so pretty! We have a similar taste and aesthetic when it comes to our artwork…feminine and…well, PRETTY! It’s a joy to swap with you, my friend…and thank you for the great stack of crafty goodness you included!
Response: I’m so very happy you liked this I just loved making this for you ❤️
