Favorite Music

i like almost all music that you can sing, dance and just plain listen to without saying what the! it takes me awhile to realise i like the music. i.e PINK by the time i realised i enjoyed her music (more than one song) all her concerts in Australia had been. i like to listen to country as in the Dixie Chicks, Troy Cassar- Daly, Trisha Yearwood. when i am being crafty i normally listen to soothing R n B like Beyonce, R Kelly, when i'm doing the housework or having a girlie weekend with my daughter we listen to the new stuff, we like Adele as well and now have both albums from her. i collect alot of soundtracks

Favorite Books

i like to read books from Roald Dahl, P.C.Cast, Maria.V.Snyder, Pamela Allen, Daisy Meadows, Melissa Marr, Stephanie Meyer.i stopped reading when i became a mum, i just couoldn't find the time, but started reading the Twilight Saga in 2009 when there was so much hype about the series, i have not stopped reading & my bookcase has now become quite full with vampire, werewolves, faeries,mythical creature books, i have become quite fond of a few of the books and have re-read them a few times. As in the book HOST i enjoyed it much better the second time. i have read a few other books as in Bryce Courtneys.

Favorite Movies

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Harry Potter, Alice in Wonderland, Jack, i like these movies as they transport you into another world . there are movies out there i can watch and watch like The Proposal, She's the man, Colour Purple, Gran Torino, & Fried Green Tomatoes and my all, all time favourite movie is Drop Dead Fred! other movies i can rewatch over and over are Harry Potter, Twilight series, the Pre-Star Wars ( the newer ones).

Favorite Television

The big bang theory, Big Love, The Gates, The Mentalist, Ghost Whisperer, Charmed, Sons of Anarchy, Games of Thrones, Person of Interest. i recently watched a series the Big C absolutely loved the humour and the sarcasm in it. also watching Nashville enjoying the music. Can watch re-runs time and time again of Grimm, love to pickup on things i missed the 1st or 2nd time round. Chicago fire nothing wrong in oogling men in uniforms, are the firefighters really that goodlooking in the U.S?

Favorite Crafts

I just like giving anything paper crafty a go. i've recently been entering into the world of Art Journaling and it is wonderful to be able to not worry about where things go and how it looks. Also Smash Booking i am only in shallow waters at the moment, but it also looks less stressful than other crafts i tried my hand at in the past.

About Me

I don't really like being on the computer, but my friend does this and i thought it was just amazing, i love to receive mail and to send and open surprises. i am a mother of a beautiful little girl who brightens my world. i would love to learn and do, how to shop on line.i just haven't got the nerve yet. i'e etsy; i see all these amazing things on peoples profiles lists..

everyday stuff

everyday stuff:; i like the colours purple, pink and Teal and Pearl. i like sweet smells like vanilla and cinnamon. i'm a big kid at heart. i like butterflies, dragonflies, turtles, Peacocks, Harry Potter and anything Alice in Wonderland my all time favourite drink is ice coffee. nothing beats a roast dinner of any kind.i'm married to the calmest person i know i have 2 stepsons, which one of them has made me a nanna b4 i'm 40, i think its neat i am more ready now to be called nanna at nearly 40, than i was to be called aunty at 30! go figure! i have daughter, thats nearly 17 and her dad tells me she is my twin as we have the same moods swings! I'm a taurus and a rat in horoscopes if that accounts for his comments. i like playing Games on the Ipad i like spy, puzzle games. My glass is well rounded and my glass is always 1/2 full.

my daughter

Anisha is now 18, OMG the years have gone by so quickly. Due to completing year 12 and aiming for Uni, she is still a homebody with her head down studying so is open to receive hi-lighter, cute Post it’s, flags.


embellishments, anything purple, stubbie coolers,bookmarks, info on good YA Books ( i have a kindle now), unicorns,Emphemera, Altered stuff. I received these great Harry Potter stamps the other day if anyone has any spare used ones they would be greatly appreciated.

Any information or books on Art Journalling or Smash Booking would be greatly appreciated along with equipment or i rather call it stuff used in these hobbies. As there is so much too ooh! and arhh! over....i have made a few travellers journals, to use the huge amount of paper craft stash and the items that are sent to me via swaps.

I have recently bought a Happy Planner ready for next year, just love all the you.tube video's on how to decorate them.If you have any tips or left over stickers they would be much appreciated. I was able to decorate the whole year and stay on track with the Happy Planner in 2018, so I am going again , this year, going to try and challenge myself to put some pthing else in, any suggestions? I have continued with the Happy Planner.

I recently read that it was the 150th Anniversary of Alice in Wonderland and that a limited edition of stamps have been bought out in the U.K, if anyone would like to do a private swap for those stamps i would absolutely be gloriously happy.

Comment: This was a great swap! Everything about it was special. The beautiful postage stamps, the very interesting note card, and all the playing cards. I love the shape cards and the mini! The kangaroo cards are super too! And I really like the rich color of the bicycle card. I only have green, pink, and black & gray. So this is a nice addition. Thank you for putting together such a thoughtful swap.

Comment: Thank you, the envelope was beautiful, although the content was totally drowned and useless. Lucky I could still read your note :)
Response: Oh no, I will put another together and send it out at the end of the week. Silly me I forgot to teach it to swim, before it left here. 😁

And the bookmark is one place (of many really) I didn't get to when I went to Australia years ago. I long to return! Such a beautiful place and lovely, friendly people! I chaperoned a group of high school students on a People-to-People tour. We spent 3 weeks going up the coast from Sydney to Cairns. I'd go back in a minute if I could! Thank you!
Response: Glad it arrived. I would love to do a trip up the east coast.

Comment: How fun that you are in Darwin...my cousin lived there for years before moving to Toowoomba and I have always wanted to visit Australia. This swap was such a generous swap though! I like how the paper clusters all use different stamps but still all work together as a group. And the extra lettersets are so cool...definately going to be starting to use those soon! Thank you so much!
Response: How cool, I started swapbot with my daughter pushing pins into a map, to learn all the different countries and places, she is 19 now and moved away. I am amazed at even though the world is so large, we can all have a connection somehow.
