About Me

I live in sydney australia with my Mr, our little miss, and our two dogs I work as an electrician, fixing trains.

we Motorcycle or public transport most of the time... .....we just purchased our first VW Kombi Camper in Jan 2011. and looking forward to getting out and about with him/her (came with the name King Caractacus but the Mr doesn't like it) we are working on blue as our interior, it may at sometime in the future also be painted blue/white outside but for now is white with a blue stripe

Please excuse my spelling, I do try but sometimes it just doesn't look right even when spelled right

I am addicted to mail coffee and marshmallows

I collect Frogs of all shapes and sizes,

I love things that are bright and cheery and useful,

other than my collection I am trying to reduce the number of not so useful things I have and make, I did have a habit of making things that I would never wear or use just for the sake of it, I would like to start decorating my home, continuing the eclectic theme that is going on at the moment, so things I can decorate or create with I consider useful

I'm Starting to enjoy collecting Postcards, personally I prefer them used wether to me or not, though I like blank ones there is something special about one that has been sent especially if it was from someones holiday or trip

I don't mind recieving second hand, thrifted or old Items.actually I kinda like them especially in nice but loved condition.

Just so you know If I recieve something that I can't use I am likley to re-gift.

Favorite Crafts

enjoy sewing, quilting and crochet, I don't Knit.

I'm on and off working on a Dear Jane Quilt

I'd like to have a go at getting into something involving paper rather than fabric soon, perhaps cards I really don't see the point in some scrapbooking except for the old clippings etc glued into a blank paged book or photo albums including tickets and flyers from events photographed, as pretty as the pages are..... maybe I just see too many with a page full of embelishment with 1 little photo .... it's just not me

I'd like to work on my photography , its been so long since I've done anything other than happy snaps with digital PaS cameras that my camera (film SLR) seems pretty obsolite these days

Favorite Music

I love just about anything, depends on where my mood takes me, If I'm a little stressed a good dance beat fixes that, stuff my mum listens to with her bestie on hols is great for chilling (think neil diamond hot august night, followed by john denver and Queen greatest hits etc)

Favorite Books

  • Anne McCaffery's dragon series
  • Christine Feehan's Dark (carpathian) series
  • Jean M Auel's earths children? series
  • Tomorrow When the war began and the ellie cronicles that follow

see a pattern here :-)

Favorite Movies

I'm not a huge movie fan I enjoy watching them but not really into it. I prefer many of the older movies that are about, I'm getting a good education in the classics from people at work who know lots about them.

Favorite Television

  • Two and a half men
  • Big Bang theory
  • NCIS
  • CSI
  • Bones
  • House
  • Send in the dogs
  • Border security
  • Hungry Beast
  • Good News Week
  • Who do you think you are?
  • As it happened

wish list

  • Frogs
  • cute pens that still fit in the pen hole of a work shirt
  • sweets, lollies, chocolate, candy that will pass my countries quarantine laws (no dried fruit with seeds)
  • letter sets
  • stickers
  • yarn...... bright colours are preferable, I'm currently working on a striped blanket for the Kombi
  • fun things for entertaining a small child, ideas or objects
  • cute tins or boxes, I love interesting storage solutions
  • Fabric, a little smaller than a fat 1/8th is still useful to me for Dear Jane


anything super smelly, I like gentle scents but really smelly sends me sneezing


religious items, I'm not anti religion I'm just no into it, items that happen to include religous images or quotes I'm ok with just not things that are completely about religion

can't be sent to Australia

When sending items to Australia there are a few things that you can’t send, this site may be very helpful but I have also included a list. List:

  • meat and meat products
  • Seeds and nuts
  • Plants or soil
  • Fruit and vegetable including fresh fruit and any dried fruit with seeds
  • Dairy, eggs and egg products
  • Plant material
  • Live animals or animal products
  • Laboratory material

If anything is sent under any of these categories it will be taken out and I will not receive it. If you want to know any more about me just send me a message and I will get back to you soon as I can thanks.
