Causes dear to my heart:

I'm back! Just to declutter/RAK and join a few swaps here and there. 18/1/23

  • My Mum is a VERY talented with junk journals. Please follow her youtube channel and Instagram. You won't regret it! https://www.youtube.com/user/vadeler

  • My friend is an artist. I've commissioned a few pieces by her and it is simply breath taking. Check out her art here: https://instagram.com/paintandpolaroids?igshid=1r4i0gm8tdnaf

About Me

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by my profile.

I live in Australia. I'm a teacher. I had a fluffy ragdoll cat who went missing last year which has left me heartbroken. I recently adopted a big Tom cat from the pound and he's a huge love bug. I love drinking coffee and tea. I love thoughtfully curating happy mail. I sew and am an amateur dressmaker. I've found my love language to be giving thoughtful gifts and have found many answers in life from realising I'm ENFP. I'm Christian and am on a journey with Jesus.

When I'm teaching I love to see the brave creativity of kids. Most small kids don't care if they make mistakes and those who do, I love seeing the moment of pushing through fear. I really can learn a thing or two!

I love to make time for people, laugh and listen to their stories. I have travelled and enjoy meeting new people, trying new foods, seeing new sights from all cultures.

Australia: I love our unique animals and community spirit. Most people of this huge island country are kind-hearted and love having a joke. Meet my Dad and you'd know this fully! Also, please understand it may take a while to receive from me once sent due to postal systems.

My craft experience: My Mum just loves all of them and dabbled in all through my childhood. She's super talented. She definitely gave her love of this to me. I enjoy trying new things and recently swaps, pen paling and happy mail have interested me.

I hope I can brighten your day somehow!

Receiving

I'm honestly not here for the receiving but I've found this section helpful on other's profiles when sending. These are just some things of note, I'd be happy and grateful with most things you would take time to send!

I like - all colours but orange is my dear favourite, blank postcards, learning about your country and where you live, letters (I so appreciate when someone takes the time to write one!).

I'm ok with it - cheeky/sassy/funny cards or postcards, 'Frozen' themed things, sci-fi

I dislike - anything satanic, mythical, witches, fairies, Halloween, overly embellished things, Victorian/Parisian/Shabby Chic vintage style, tea bags.

Need to know anything else, please ask 😊😊

Hi Beth.
How are you doing? I hope you're safe, healthy and well. I was wondering of you'd be interested in another private journalling swap? Not as heavy/big as the last one, but a bit smaller one just to keep us both on track.

Here's an illustration of one of my favourite plants to brighten your day.

Heh, I've just sent out your swap for the LSRUS 1000 Hearts Giveaway swap, plus the swap to my partner for the Active Aussie SWAPaholics 5 Things For Fun swap, and just realised you're also sending to me for the 5 Things swap. Looking forward to it! :D
