I don't drink tea or coffee,
I love the colour purple.
The iris is my favourite flower.
I like Dr Who and Star Trek
I like to sew (when I get time)
I love to paint, watercolours mostly.
I have just begun studying at uni for the first time.

Hi Secret Santa

Best wishes for the festive season
Posted 05 November 2012 - 02:22 PM
I'm an easy going kinda gal, and I'll happily receive whatever you send me.
But for a little bit of information about me to help you on your way....
I'm a bit of a geek, I like Dr Who, Stargate, and good old-fashioned action movies (no chick-flicks for this little mouse).
I'm a graphic designer, artist, and a crochet fanatic... if you bought me yarn, I'd probably swoon with delight. I don't need hooks though - I make my own! (told you I was a fanatic...)
I like pretty things, but I'm not overly 'girly', and I have long curly hair. Nice strong hair ties would be awesome as I keep breaking them. I also like kayaking, but you don't need to buy me one of those
I love vintage and handmade and delightfully smelly candles.
My favourite colours are anything that is bright and fun.
My 'dislikes' aren't that I dislike anything, more that.... I don't drink coffee and I have enough lotions/creams to keep me going for quite a while
Hope that helps!
Posted 05 November 2012 - 02:48 PM
I will love anything you send me because it may be the only thing I unwrap without prior knowledge of what it is! But a bit about me... I love coffee, fancy tea cups and unique jewellery. I love to read and write. I like pretty things to wear in my hair. I'm getting married in March.
I don't like or am useless at cooking, sewing, crafty things, real flowers (they all make me sneeze), and bath salts. That's it.
Exciting! And to my secret receiver, please post in here soon!

Hi Secret Santa
I have to agree with the general consensus, I am another who doesn't like moisturizers or bath products.
I like almost anything else and tend to like practical gifts and not dust collectors.
I am really looking forward to getting a present who's contents is unknown.
Thank you Santa.
