About Me

Hi 👋 👋

I have had penpals since I was 10 years old and have always enjoyed sending small gifts and swapping items so I am thrilled to be a part of swapbot and look forward to lots of fantastic swaps.

In my spare time I like to write letters I still have a few penpals around the world that I keep in touch with through snailmail, read books and magazines, bake, travel when time and money permits, cross stitch, adult colouring, crafts I'm not the best crafter in the world but I try my best.

I aim to always send my swaps out on time, please contact me before leaving a 1 I am happy to resend if for some reason my swap hasn't arrived.

Things I ❤️

• ❤️ Letter Sets or just a few sheets of letter paper and some envelopes.

• ❤️ Gel pens of all colours esp. scented or glittery.

• ❤️ Tea - Prefer black teas and love to try flavoured black teas but happy to receive green and white tea too.

• ❤️ Coffee ☕️ - especially flavoured coffee's.

• ❤️ Chocolate 🍫 - my favourite is white, milk and mint but will eat pretty much any chocolate 😂

• ❤️ Sweets / candy 🍭 - Anything other than black liquorice 🤢

• ❤️ Mugs

• ❤️Books 📚 And bookmarks (prefer plastic or novelty)

• ❤️Cute socks

• ❤️ Sticker sheets

• ❤️ Lip Balm

•❤️ Tea / kitchen Towels

• ❤️ Hot Chocolate - I love to try hot chocolates / cocoas available in other countries especially on autumn and winter when the evenings are cold and dark.

• ❤️ Recipe books - I collect recipe books.

• ❤️Seeds and Gardening - especially things for the kitchen garden e.g. Veg, fruit and herb growing.

• ❤️ Adult colouring books and felt pens.

• ❤️ Hair accessories.

• ❤️ Snacks - it's always interesting to try favourite snacks from around the world.

•❤️ Drink mixes - hot or cold.

• ❤️ Peacocks

• ❤️ Alice in wonderland themed items.

Favorite Books

I love to read all kinds of books and always happy to receive book suggestions, some of my best reads have been recommendations. I have quite a large collection of books and even though I read a lot on my kindle I just can't help myself from buying real life books too so my collection just keeps on growing 😂 Of course I have more books waiting to be read than I have time to read them. I don't really have favourite authors as I like such a wide variety of book types and styles and always ready to discover someone new. I also love bookmarks but prefer plastic or novelty ones over card.

Favorite Movies

•Love actually

•Bridget Jones

•Harry Potter

•The Greatest Showman

•Marvel Universe Movies

• I love a good horror film but none of my family do so I rarely get to watch them 😐

Favorite Crafts

•Cross Stitch

•Adult colouring

•Sequin craft

Favourite colours

• Purple

• Teal

• Red

craftseverything rated for Coffee Heaven # 1 on Oct 10, 2018
Comment: Hello Alison! Thank you so much for the coffee packs, tea, and really cool Halloween card. I am so jealous that you can get the Nescafe coffee mixes. We can only get the dinky flavored coffee sticks here in the States (sad face), so this has absolutely made my day. I'm excited to try a new tea brand as well. Both of those are my favorite. Thank you for checking my profile for my favorites. Happy swapping.

Hello! Thank you for the Haribo candy. We get Haribo here as well, but I’ve never seen the fairyland designs. I hope I don’t eat it all at once <3

Sorry, it's too big.. It says: 'chocolate comes from cocoa, which is a tree, that makes it a plant. So... chocolate counts as a salad!! -Annascott-

Profile Love - September


"There is a charm to letters and cards that emails and smses can’t ever replicate, you cannot inhale them, drawing the fragrance of the place they have been mailed from, the feel of paper in your hand bearing the weight of the words contained within. You cannot rub your fingers over the paper and visualise the sender, seated at a table, writing, perhaps with a smile on their lips or a frown splitting the brow. You can’t see the pressure of the pen on the reverse of the page and imagine the mood the person might have been in when he or she was writing it. Smiley face icons cannot hope to replace words thought out carefully in order to put a smile on the other person’s face, the pressure of the pen, the sharpness or the laxity of the handwriting telling stories about the frame of mind of the writer, the smudges on the sheets of paper telling their own stories, blotches where tears might have fallen, hastily scratched out words where another would have been more appropriate, stories that the writer of the letter might not have intended to communicate." - Kiran Manral, The Face at the Window
