About Me

title

I'm Rebecca, and I live in the countryside in South West England with my two young children. I have had a long break from swap-bot since my life changed dramatically in 2011 but I've always missed it and I'm looking forward to getting back into swapping again and making some new friends!

My profile does need a proper update as my interests have changed slightly, but not a lot! I'm still a candle and soap maker, I still love crafting, and my main passions are aromatherapy, herbalism, and living a simple life full of love and positivity. I've just re-found reiki and have a level 1 certificate.

I am very into interior design and home decor, I love country and vintage style. I'm a crafter through and through and I love gardening, cooking and baking too.I'm studying for some courses at the moment and love stationery and penpalling.

I love art, I love shabby chic and cottage style.

When I get time to relax, my favourite thing is a hot bubble bath, a glass of wine and a good book that I can lose myself in! (he he, I wrote this bit in 2010, I now have two children and I don't have any time to relax, but if I did, I'd still love to do this!)

I love vintage trinkets - cups and saucers, perfume bottles, vintage fabric. I also enjoy altered art and mixed media collage.

Things I love..

crafts, candles, rainbows, fabric, stationery, soaps, bubble baths, wine, chocolate, vintage buttons, jewellery & accessories, vintage ephemera, sugar sweet decor, cottage style, collage, painting, shabby chic, collectables, scented goodies, seals, ducks, deer, stickers, art, scrapbooks, cards, atcs, perfume bottles, buttons, spiritualism, angels, magazines, sugar sprinkles and baking suppies, things for the garden, fabric and scented hearts, postcards (especially vintage / arty cards), alice in wonderland, handmade, roses,

I have totally eclectic tastes and love bright rainbow coloured goodies, to shabby and whimsical pastel items, to the esoteric and natural earth themed items. I love it all :-)

title

My favourite colours are blue and pink, and I love things that are sparkly :-) I have pierced ears and prefer silver or bronze jewellery to gold.

Dislikes

I'm grateful for anything you choose to send me, but I don't really like spicy or citrus scents or flavours and I don't use bath bombs, I much prefer bubbles! :-) I also dislike liquorice.

Favorite Movies

My favourite film ever is The Godfather. I also love M. Night Shyamalan films, The Village, The Sixth Sense, anything that draws you in with a good twist! Oh.. and Sex and The City. I love that :-)

Favorite Books

A tough one to answer, so many different themes! I must admit I do love chick lit, and craft books of course, but I also love true life stories. I've recently read the Stonewylde series by Kit Berry, which is pagan fiction and I absolutely love it! I also love ghost stories and pagan books - true life or fiction! I love historical and nostalgic fiction.

Favorite Crafts

Candle and soapmaking, jewellery making and beading, papercrafts, felt crafts, hand sewing, painting, collage, matchboxes, miniatures, hairclips and other accessories.. and pretty much anything I haven't listed!

I love going to car boot sales and charity shops and picking up things that I can hopefully upcycle into something wonderful, or supplies to help me do it! I'm always trying something new. The candles and soaps are my first crafting love, and everything else is play time!

I'm not into knitting, crochet, or embroidery, buy that's just for the simple reason that I don't know how to do them! One day maybe :-) I have attempted crochet as I'd love to be able to do that, but I wasn't very good at it, I'm hoping to try again soon!

Ratings etc..

what I pledged

I will always rate as soon as I receive a swap. If you are waiting for a swap from me and you haven't received it, please send me a private message before rating. Trust and communication is very important, and I'm friendly, honest! :-)

Please also send me a message if you'd like to do a private swap, I love those too!

**flaked :-( **

These are the swaps that I have unfortunately not received. The term 'flaked' always makes me want chocolate..
