It's been a happy mail time for me!

Jemimah sent these sweet coasters. Beautifully made and they look lovely on my bookcase ready to be used. I am now no longer int he bizarre adults group who don't own coasters. Smiley They're a rich red rather than slightly pinkish as in this photo.

Also, she made these four fab cards. Elegant and simple with watercolour and pen - can't wait to send some cards.

Thank you so much.

Ok, so after a super busy spell I finally got back on here. Here is a better daylight picture of Anna.Wahnsinn's lovely mail organiser.

The stitching is perfect and I love the colours. It will be on the wall today. Hooray!

Thank you so much!

Yeah I don't get the purpose of wrapping food to freeze... I just use plastic containers or bags. Still, I have found a substitute! Disposable paper palettes from a cheapy shop  - 40 sheets for $2.50AUD. Cheap as and waxed on one side. Irons on just fine and comes off without residue. I've just used a sheet to make a shirt for Grab a Coffee. Very please to find something I can get locally and cheaply to do stencils on fabric.

I also just recieved from Anna.Wahnsinn. A very beautiful and superbly neat letter organiser for my wall. It is much needed and in fab colours. It is late night here so my photos are turning out absolutely terribly so I will take a nice one once the sun comes up in the morning. Thank you so much! It's a lovely surprise getting happy mail, even when you know it is coming Smiley

I see an NZ coin! Yay!

So fun. I have no idea how you make them that small.  Shocked

This would be fun with a slightly thicker fabric, boat neck, zip at the back and belt loops. Might give it a go (adding a little extra fabric to actually fit my waist!). The buttons would then only be decorative.

I just got some more fabric painting medium as my old bottle has gone a bit dry. Means I can get started on the shirts for Make a Coffee Smiley

EDIT: I was also getting low on freezer paper (I have to swap for it or by a metre from eBay, we can't buy it in Australia) so I decided to try a pad of disposable paper palettes I bought from a cheapy shop. It's waxed on one side and, surprisingly, it works just as well. Problem solved for the future!

Jemimah - it will stand up to heat as it is all cotton and preshrunk. Hopefully it protects your table from anything a bit hot!

I claim Grab a Coffee for some boy shirts Smiley


Hi my name is Linda and I am in my 20s and I live in Australia.

I am a bit coy about personal information posted publically as I am a secondary school teacher.  Feel free to ask if you need to know any details I will PM. I studied fine art at university and used to be a journalist.

I love art and design, martial arts (karate), reading, cooking (vegetarian), metal and concerts, outdoors and gardening, being unusually clean at home, organization and quirky things. I have no pets or kids and I dont smoke.  My house is small and new so Im still fitting it out a bit. My brother is also in the same situation, so I can also use home-related gifts for him.

I love things which are functional, can be put on the wall or which dont need to be put on a shelf. I dont have a great deal of shelf space for knick knacks so theyre not really my kind of thing. I always paint my nails and have an offbeat dress sense. I dont scrapbook. Love to travel.

Tattoo flash is some of my favourite imagery. My favourite tattoo artists are Sasha Unisex, Tilly Dee, Ben Koopman, Brad Hampstead, Mimsy Gleeson and Clare Clarity.  I also love geometric designs, lino print style imagery and most other visual art.

I dont like girly, pink, orange/yellow, kawaii, floral (unless its a bit funky - think Marimekko), ruffles, lace and other cutesy things. Its just not me. Im also not into creepy-cute, glitter, dandelions and clich images like the infinity symbol. Not into patriotism or wiccan themes. Not into dolls (especially those Blythe dolls and other cutesy things like that).

All my allergies are food related so please don't send food.

I love dark colours, texture, nature, geometrics, turquoise, green, blue, black and white, deep purple, silver, black, grey, blue and deep red. I also love texture and natural things.


Things I would love to receive:

-   Wall art. I love receiving other peoples art. Painting, embroidery, printmaking, photography whatever! I have some beautiful art on my walls from Craftster swaps and I have plenty of wall space left. Any size and any media.
It's ok if I need to do some work and mount, hoop, frame... whatever!

- Loose-ish beanie (I have a ponytail and don't like them tight)
- Small face washing cloths for the shower
-   Slippers, socks or house shoes. Feet sz AUS9-10/EU40-41
- Anything knitted with cable. They're so pretty.
- Cushion cover
- Cuff
- Tea cosy for my pot (this is my pot http://www.t2tea.com/shop/teaware-2/tea-pots/4-cup-tea-pots/new-leaf-1-1l-black/ )
- Cowl

-   Fabric boxes for storage or organisation. Any size
-   A centre mat or table runner for my table. Measurements can be provided (its a four person table so its pretty small). I have red cushions on the chairs.
-   Table cloth
-   Heat pack for the microwave
-   PJ pants. Cotton, flannelette, some other fabric, summer/winter, just over the knee/three-quarter/full length. Whatever! I love them.
-   Mug-rug style or fabric box things for my bedside table to put little bits in
-   Hoopla - whatever takes your fancy. Also ok if it's not in the hoop and I will frame it.
-   A reasonably padded case for my Macbook Air. It's currently nude (scandal!)
-   Unpaper towels or any other things to save waste and love the planet
-   Sturdy shopping bag (you can never have too many in the car)
-   Those reusable netting bags for veggies so I dont have to use plastic when I shop

-   Coasters. Seriously, why dont I have any of these?
-   Tea towels. Any colour
-   Hand towels (neutral earth colours and olive greens)
-   Scented candles. I love warm scents, vanilla, fruits etc but not really floral scents.
-   Tea and tea related stuff.
-   Cards blank inside multipurpose preferred. Not too much pizzazz or sparkly business ☺
-   Something to organise my newly acquired desk. Its just a plain 60s table so I need a mouse pad, things to put pencils in, things for papers. Absolute blank canvas so far!
-   Gift tags simple and plain decoration please
-   Simple stamp to make easy gift tags (perhaps to stamp on thin recycled card and cut out that way I have plenty)
-   Prayer flags
-   Picture frame. Plain, textured, whatever. All the frames in my house are black so far so I guess stay with that. I stick them on the wall with removable Velcro stickers or removable sticker hooks.
-   Things for assisting with or making pretty in the garden. I have a watersaving native garden, citrus and veggies/herbs
-      Recipe organiser
-      First aid kit container thing for the house or car. I'm ashamed to say I don't have either so I just have bandaids loose in the cupboard.
- Art supplies (paper, ink, pencils, brushes, watercolour, pens - especially waterproof, markers, printing stuff)
- Art supply organiser of any description (except brush roll. I have a few of them)
- Microfibre cleaning stuff
- Some way to make my karate bag not stink like something has died in it  Shocked
- Stationery

Or, something inspired by my Pinterest ☺ or even just a happy surprise.

I use business cards and those free postcards many places have in my design classes. If you have any cards lying about I would love to adopt a few.  Smiley

Australia has strict biosecurity and quarantine laws. Please, no feathers, wood, seeds, leaves, soil, fruit etc. If you have any doubts, please ask and I'm happy to help with the rules. I have had a package taken by quarantine and you don't get it back!
9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Re: Girl with vines and birds papercutting on: October 03, 2014 05:58:10 AM
Amazing. And to think this is printer paper. I simply cannot fathom how this is even possible! Such respect for your patience and fine motor skills.

I have three papercuts on the wall at my house and I regularly just stand and marvel at them. What an amazing craft!

Jemimah's parcel is addressed and ready to go. I'm ready for bed, but I will get it off first thing in the morning.

I have avoided my marking by putting my hair up in rag curlers I made out of old pyjamas (no reason. Curly hair not required) and making another two Christmas puddings. Ah, Sunday. You're going to be a busy night before school.
