About Me

PROFILE LAST UPDATED: October 12th 2023.

I am open to private swaps! Please send me a message if interested in doing a private swap. Things I like to swap: Crafty (pocket letter, flipbook, etc), food and/or drink, profile based package.


Mail is slow - please be patient with mail arriving to you. Do not hesitate to send me a PM for any queries, I am more than happy to listen and act in a fair manner! I really appreciate communication so don't be shy if you have any issues with receiving the item or the swap itself! Please do not rate me a '1' without communicating first. I am more than happy to resend swaps to you/fix the issue. Thank you so much! :)

For ratings: I truly hope others will rate in a timely manner. Please also check that you have hit ‘save ratings’ when leaving a rating as it won’t go through if you don’t AND check my profile page to make sure the rating has submitted. Thank you so much and thank you for being my partner!!

I rate all of my swaps immediately after opening (within 24 hours of receiving the swap in my mailbox or front door) and I pledge that I will continue this.

Hi everyone! My name is Annabelle and I am 34 years old. I live in Australia. I live with my partner and our beautiful daughter, Clara, born in August 2021.

I love cooking, food, crafts and discovering new things! Purple is my favourite colour! I love dogs and animals and nature! I write my own poetry and stories as well. I love meditation and fitness and mindfulness is very important to me. I am also addicted to Pinterest!

I do not have any allergies.

I have a likes/wishlist and dislike list below - however please note that I am very open to trying new things, so don't feel that you HAVE to send something from my likes/wishlist. Just as long as it is not one of my dislikes of course!

Thank you so much to everyone who has sent me a swap or RAK - I have truly loved them all! I truly appreciate the time and effort you have put into sending me something through the mail!

Favorite Music

I listen to a wide range of music - I am always up for discovering new music.

Favorite Books

Any romance novels, cookbooks and magazines (beauty, food, health, meditation/mindfulness). I really love writing poems and stories. I have really been interested in journal swaps - I feel like writing and being creative this way is a form of meditation. I love filling up an empty journal!

Favorite Movies

I am not a big movie buff, but I enjoy any romance or comedy movies.

Favorite Television

I am not a big television watcher - I prefer watching YouTube clips about food, nature, crafts or anything else that catches my eye!

Favorite Crafts

I am always up to creating any crafts, but I actively make dreamcatchers and various types of journals. I also make pocket letters and flipbooks. I really enjoy paper crafts!


  • Anything floral (obsessed! I LOVE flowers).

  • Anything animal themed, especially dogs. I like turtles as well.

  • Anything handmade (especially Pocket Letters, Flipbooks and Tag Flips).

  • Address labels with my name and address on them.

  • Dreamcatchers.

  • Anything that is purple.

  • Food products (exceptions listed in dislikes below). I enjoy trying foreign food products. Please make sure that any food products are in their original packaging. I like savoury / sweet / sour food items. I also don't mind receiving healthy snacks or snacks that are vegetarian / vegan. However, I do not have any dietary requirements, so I am very relaxed and willing to try pretty much anything!

  • Chocolates and candy/lollies.

  • Coffee sachets.

  • Hot chocolate sachets/mixes.

  • Tea (please only send plain green or matcha tea, plain black tea, plain white tea, chocolate tea, caramel / salted caramel tea, mango tea, lemon / lemon and honey tea, apple tea, watermelon tea, lime tea, peach tea, jasmine tea, coconut tea or China rose tea).

  • Recipes and food magazines from around the world.

  • Kitchen accessories.

  • Anything with a cupcakes theme!

  • Maggie Holmes products.

  • Martha Stewart products.

  • Tim Holtz products.

  • Steampunk products.

  • Fashion items such as jewellery (particularly earrings for pierced ears and anklets), clothes, scarves and makeup (I love red and pink lipsticks). I also love scented body oils.

  • Craft items/stationary - stickers, pretty coloured paper, origami paper, card stock, embellishments, diecuts, journal cards, letter sets, wooden stamps, acrylic stamps, any other stamps etc. Basically anything in this category! I use the Happy Planner - Classic size.

  • Tombow and Copic markers.

  • Enamel pins.

  • DIY kits.

  • Items that a primary (elementary) teacher could use in the classroom (as I am a teacher). I know a lot of people write on their profile that they don't want teacher stickers, but feel free to send them to me! All I ask is that they are good quality. The students I teach are obsessed with scented stickers so if you could get them, that would be amazing!

  • Positive quotes and inspirations, poetry.

  • Beautiful pictures.

  • Astrology (my Zodiac/Sun sign is Pisces, Moon sign is Libra, Ascendant/Rising sign is Pisces).

  • Tarot / Oracle card pack.

  • Amethyst crystal.

  • Souvenirs from the country you live in (postcards, maxicards, keyrings, snowglobes, etc.).

  • Any meditation or relaxation items (for example, face masks, eye masks, hand masks, foot masks, self-care books, magazines, etc).

  • Beach/nautical/island/tropical/water themed items.

  • Forest/nature themed items.

  • Bicycles and parks.

  • Health and fitness products. I love exercising, eating well and good health for my body, mind and spirit, so anything related to those would be fantastic!

  • Outer space/astronomy themed items - I am obsessed with the stars, the moon and planets, so beautiful. Anything with a star chart on it would be awesome to receive!

  • Cute stress balls/squishys.

  • Scented or unscented candles.

  • Cute and nice smelling hand sanitizers (can never have enough of them especially as a teacher!).

  • Coffee mugs with interesting/fun designs and quotes

  • Washi tape (either full rolls or samples).

Dislikes/Unneeded Items

  • Licorice or anise flavoured items.

  • Food that is mint flavoured (exception: mint flavoured chocolate is amazing!).

  • Candied ginger or any other ginger flavoured product.

  • Sultanas and raisins.

  • Food products that contain alcohol (as I do not consume alcohol).

  • Marzipan.

  • Celery.

  • Any tea not mentioned in my likes/wishlist above. I highly dislike Herbal tea, Chai tea and Earl Grey tea.

  • Food or makeup products that are past their expiration date, use by date or best before date.

  • Nail polish or any other nail products.

  • Any bath products.

  • Used products and dirty products.

  • Anything with a very strong smell, as it makes me feel unwell.
