So I thought long and hard about this. I would like to apologise to people who didn't recieve swaps from me. I sent some multiple times. Last year I tested positive for covid and was seriously ill. After recovering somewhat I have been told I have long covid. Not only this but when I went for my routine bloodtests a big red flag showed. It turns out I had cancer. Thyroid cancer to be exact. I didn't want to publish this to everyone but want people to see that swaps I signed up for ended up getting forgotten about. For my cancer I had to have radioactive iodine and then had a thyroidectomy.

About Me

Hi I'm Emma. I'm new to the site. I'm currently studying for my honours degree in computing, IT and design. I came across this website through another website. I thought now would be the best time to sign up and reach out due to us being in lockdown. I look forward to making new connections with people and sending and receiving interesting things. So yeah thats me. Oh and my profile name BamBam is my nickname :)

Favorite Crafts

I love to make paper crafts. I am currently making a junk journal. I like not being restricted and just letting myself make something rather than setting a goal. Whether this be a drawing or painting to using stamps and die cuts.

Favorite Movies

I love watching comedy and action films. One of my favourites is the Marvel universe. I enjoy the action and comedy and how they aren't really serious.

Favorite Television

I like watching true crime programmes. I could watch them all day everyday. I can also sit and watch documentaries and the soaps or watch kids programmes with my little boy

Likes and Dislikes

I like finding beauty where I can. I love photography and photo editing. My favourite colours are blue, teal and purple, but i also love the sky when the sun is just setting or rising. I love hearing the rain but not being in it. I love spending time with my family but hate saying goodbye at the end of the day. I love my dogs.

I love collecting stamps and old ephemera. I like stickers and washi tape. I love pens and pretty paper. I love reading with a nice cup of tea with a blanket. I always feel like I was born in the wrong era.

Now for my dislikes, I dont like generic notebooks, I like to have something different that isn't mass produced as such. I don't really like the colour red, I don't know why there's just something about it. I dislike ignorance if you want respect then show me respect don't think you deserve it. I don't like sticky notes as I've ended up with so many I will never use them all.

Favorite Music

I have a wide variety of favourite music, it depends on my mood and what I'm doing or who I'm with. If I'm studying I like listening to relaxing music as it helps me study, where as if I'm cleaning I like to listen to bands like Queen. If I'm on my own I can be known to listen to One Direction but I would never admit that to anyone I know haha

The struggle youโ€™re in today is developing the strength you need for tomorrow.

I hope things are getting better there. We were doing really well here (Maine people have the disposition for social distancing) until 65 selfish, ignorant people decided that a wedding reception would be a good idea. There are now over 140 confirmed cases, and one death, directly traced to that reception.

Hello! While reading over your profile I saw that you are interested in true crime stories! That is all I watch as well. I would love see how your junk journals turn out. I am trying to make then as well and am having a lot of fun collecting cool things to add. I loved reading over your profile and would love to swap with you sometime in the future! Many Blessings ๐Ÿ’™

Quick and Easy Profile Hello #1

Hello ๐Ÿ‘‹ I spy a fellow Brit and a fellow crafter ๐Ÿ˜Š Love nothing better than getting messy with some ink, paint, stencils, stamps etc myself. Oh and Iโ€™m right with you on the reading with a cup of tea and a blanket thing too....although to be honest itโ€™s a cup of tea to accompany anything as far as Iโ€™m concerned. Hope youโ€™re feeling better after your operation, take care Donna ๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŒธ
