About Me

Hi, I'm Phillippa. I'm 24 years old and from the UK, I'm a Yorkshire Girl.

I joined swap-bot a few years ago, but then life got in the way so I stopped for a while. I restarted swapping in Feb 2011 and quickly became addicted!

October 2012 I am moving up to Scotland for another job so I will be changing my address again. Any post which arrives to my Huddersfield address will get to me, but there will be a delay between my parents getting it and sending it up to me.



I listen to most types of music except hiphop/RnB/rap. I love The Beautiful South, I grew up listening to them and just love their music and lyrics. I have developed a love for gentle music recently, stuff like snow patrol and James Blunt. I also adore music form musicals like Phantom of The Opera, Chicago, Hairspray etc etc.


I adore reading. I spend too much time with my head in a novel and not in a study book! I read classics like Jane Eyre, Chick Lit books, stuff like Dan Brown, and I read an unhealthy amount of Terry Pratchett!! I'm also a Harry Potter geek. But put a book in front of me and I'm sure I'll read it - Just don't ask me to write an essay on it!


I love comedy - Black books, Two and A Half Men and Big Bang Theory just to name a few sitcoms I like. I enjoy quizcoms like Mock The Week and 8 out of 10 cats. I have developed a love for Glee recently and myself and my family have become addicted to NCIS and I'm quite a Doctor Who geek too =)

Favorite Crafts

I do art journaling and scrap booking. I love making cards as well. I've become a major ATC addict since (re)joining swap-bot. I'm starting to branch out into different crafts so hopefully doing some swaps will help me.

I love using Tim Holtz products (if they weren't so expensive!) and 7 gypsys, paperartsy... all the altered imagery stuff.

I have started to do some fabric crafts such as cross stitch and wet-felting.

I'd love to get ideas for new crafty things, so I'd love to see what ever it is you make =)

I know it's not a craft as such, but I love writing and reading letters about anything and everything. I'm really enjoying getting to know people through letters. They give you an extra insight to people and their worlds that you can't get from an email or sometimes even talking to someone. Also it means I get to know people from all over the world!


~Anything green


~recipes - i love trying out new foods.

~Harry Potter, anything to do with the books or films

~Doctor Who things

~I love fairies, not cutsie ones though. I do love Tinkerbell - the real one, not the CGI one that's made an appearance recently!

~Ribbons and Buttons

~ hand made envies

~stickers (not reward or teacher ones, but other than that - ANY!)

~Fresh things - colours, smells, ideas!


~postcards and notecards

~anything with clocks on

~colours I love: greens, blues, reds, purples. I also like crafting with browns and black and white. Really I like all colours and shades.

~ handwritten letters

~old style advertisements, things like coca cola and other older brands. I also love War Time memorabilia and things like the "make do and mend" propaganda.

~Pretty paper

~anything I can use for penpalling


~Anything Cath Kidson style / vintagy

~Most flowers but Sunflowers and Daisies are my favourite!

~Anything ATC. ATCs made by you, ATC pouches, backing papers, embellishments - you name it, I'll love it!

~Things to go in my hair, but not really big things as they don't suit me

~ Jewellery of all styles, chunky, subtle, bright, gold/silver, anything goes with me! but not earrings as I don't have pierced ears

~anything you have taken taken time to think about and make or select.

~Socks - small! I'm only a shoe size 4 (UK)

~Girl Guiding (or equivalent) - I'm a Brownie Leader and proud of it!

~Fat Quarters or biggish fabric scraps. I've recently started a sewing class and it's got me addicted to making things.

~sewing patterns (see above)

~Cross Stitch kits or patterns.

Super Super Wishes

There are a few things which I will love you forever for and would love to do private swaps for.

  • Twizzlers. My friend introduced me to these while I was visiting them as there is a sweetshop that sells imported sweet. I have no such place up here, and I would LOVE some Twizzlers - any flavour!

  • Boston Cream Pie mixes. We can't get them over here and my Grandma loves them, so I'd win millions of grandchild points if I could get her some!

  • Any of my Esty Favs, especially anything Harry Potter or Doctor Who based.

  • A necklace with a working clock like a mini pocket watch

  • Something you've made =)

Dislikes/No Thanks

~yellow - no idea why.

~ Tea and Coffee. Don't like hot drinks. Or Coffee flavoured things

~Very religious things. I'm not religious myself and although I respect other peoples beliefs and am interested in them, very religious items aren't very appropriate for me.

~Clowns - I find clowns really creepy and would really rather not have anything with them. shudders having said that I do like things which are fairground themed and some circus themed things, just avoid clowns!

~Dolls. I like some forms of dolls but other I'm not a fan of. So please don't send them (unless requested).

~ there isnt all that much I don't like. If I think of anything else I'll put it on here!


That's just about it from me, but if there is anything else I need to add or you'd just like to be nosy, please feel free to email me and I'll get back to you asap!

Please avoid sending me anything which could be offensive "naked" in the post, eg nude postcards. I live with the family who employs me and I don't think it would be professional for me to receive such things. Plus I wouldn't want the 3 children to see them. I have no problem with nudity, or rude/swears etc. but please put them in an envie and maybe put note on the envie or something so I know not to open it in 'public'

I will always rate within 24 hours of receiving a package. And I will always do my best to send swaps on time. Please do rate me - just so I know you're got it! If you don't get anything from me or think I'm late or anything, please let me know and I will do my best to sort the problem out! Thank you =)

Comment: I hate to give you a "3" for this swap as you sent me so nice mail five out of six times. I contacted you about the missing sixth one but never heard back from you.
Comment: Phillippa, I love both your card with the cross stitched ear muffs and the snow man ATC--I SO-SO-SO-SO miss having a snowy winter, especially during the holiday season! Have a splendid New Year!
Comment: What an awesome swap!! I love everything and am jealous. I have wanted to go to the UK (esp London) forever. Very great package! Thanks Phillippa. You were a great partner.

Comment: This swap was due on Apr. 30. I sent you two mails (Jun 1 and Aug 18). On Aug 19 you said you would (re)-send "this week". 5 weeks later there was still nothing. Now on October 8, half a year after the swap deadline, your postcard finally arrived.
Response: Really sorry about this. I thought I had re-sent. Has gone in the post today (25th September). Very sorry again.

When you come back and remedy the unreceived swap, please message me to re-join FOPS. I hope you're okay.

WystericalViolets on Jan 8, 2013:

I have had to temporarily remove you from TOOTC for the time being until you sort out your swap. You are more than welcome back when you get it resolved.

mizvicky on Dec 29, 2012:

Hi there.

Just letting you know that I have not received the Swap ' Cream Crackered Pampering Kit' from you. You marked sent in Dec 2, but have not logged on Since Dec 3. Not looking to good :( Hope all is ok

MichelleWillow on Nov 26, 2012:

Hello dear! Just checking to see did you get part 3, 4 and 5 for snail mail swap? I wouldn't want it to get lost.... Although I would really hate if this last one gets lost. :(

MichelleWillow on Nov 22, 2012:

Hihihi.... :) Week 6 mail packed and ready to go. But! Not to be opened before December 24th! You'll just have to wait! ;P

darkxangel84 on Nov 19, 2012:

Hey, I'm your 2nd CS Alt - Christmas cards! partner ;D

MichelleWillow on Nov 4, 2012:

You got the second letter? Awesome! :) As for recipe, I prefer to be surprised ;)

MichelleWillow on Nov 4, 2012:

Hey dear! Do you collect recipes on recipe cards (and if yes, which size) or should I just write it inside a letter? I'm fine with both options so it's completely your choice! ;)

devilyn on Sep 14, 2012:

SENG: Pick two tag... loved the socks and will reply to your letter soon... thanks
