About Me

Hi! My name is Lauren and I am 28 years old. I live in the south of England, where I have lived my whole life.

I've been a member of Swapbot for years now and yet I still don’t really know what to write in this section.

I suffer from a condition called Selective Mutism, which is a severe anxiety disorder that affects communication. I’d love to hear from anyone else who suffers from it, as it doesn’t seem as commonly known in adults. I also suffer from other physical and mental health issues, and crafting/swapping is pretty much like a therapy to me.

** For JJJ Let’s Make a Junk Journal **

I’m happy to receive any theme if it’s on my A-Z of likes. I especially love florals, under the sea, nautical, vintage, animals and circus.

Any size works for me too as I can work with all sizes

Important & Updates

  • I rate as soon as I receive a swap, so if I haven’t rated yet, it’s hopefully just because mail can be a bit slow. The latter also applies to swaps I’ve sent.. if you haven’t received a swap from me, please message before rating

  • Where possible, I would prefer to receive envelopes that aren’t completely covered in sellotape/clear tape, as I like to use parts of the envelopes in other crafts, and recycle the rest

  • Please DO NOT send loose glitter or items with flaky glitter. They will end up being discarded. It’s on my dislikes, but I seem to be receiving more as more of it lately

Hi Lauren, thank you for the lovely and joyful LSRU August wishes you sent. I will enjoy using them in my journals and making hand crafted bookmarks. Each wish was very thoughtful and my favorite was the cat photo. Every little creature has a secret message!
