About Me

Hi everyone!

I have recently returned to Swap Bot after a two-year hiatus while I finished my master’s degree. During this time I amassed a large collection of washi tapes and wanted to mark my return by hosting a washi swap.

When checking postmarks I'm usually in the future compared to most swappers (cool, huh?) That means the postmark will not match the send date assigned by Swap-Bot. The postmark will always be 1 day ahead due to the international date line. :)

I learned about swap-bot when I was looking for ideas on interesting things I could send to my penpals. :) I'm not new to snail-mail--I had been using Postcrossing on-and-off for 4 years when I signed up for Swap Bot, but now I mainly focus on my pen pals.

I'm sort of an introvert--I love being at home engaged in some sort of project. However, I'm not shy--I love to host events and never shy away from giving a speech or presentation to a crowd. Yet, I'm not an attention-seeker--I just like to share what I know, then get out of the spotlight.

I grew up on an island and love being at the beach or just being near the water. I don't remember ever not being able to swim and have fond memories of spending my summers at the beach (which happened to be in my backyard!) My favourite vacation spots are usually near a beach.

Favorite Crafts

I've been crafting for as long as I can remember. I was my maternal grandmother's only granddaughter (out of 9 grandchildren) and often crafted with her while the boys got up to trouble.

I would best describe myself as a dabbler as my work commitments keep me busy. I've recently been dabbling in

  • Cross-stitch (3 WIP!)
  • Crocheting
  • Bullet journaling

I love to visit the little shops in my city looking for adorable stationery items--I have an entire drawer full that, until now, I wasn't sure how to use. I'm sure I can everything I've collected to good use now.

Things I Appreciate

I love receiving any and all mail--I check my mailbox every day! However,if you need some ideas about what I might especially enjoy, here are some hints.

  • Jetoy items
  • Pusheen
  • Black tea
  • Letter sets (paper & envelopes)
  • Stickers
  • Typography-themed items
  • Cat-themed items.
  • Washi tape
  • Postcards--any type!
  • Any stationery item! (I love everything!)
  • Tea-themed items.
  • Adventure Time items
  • Geometric designs
  • Repeating patterns

I, by no means, expect any of my wishes to be fulfilled, so don't feel any pressure about what to send--I'm thrilled just by seeing an envelope or postcard waiting for me. :)

No Thank You!

There isn't much I don't like, but there are a few things I think would be put to better use by being sent to someone else.

  1. Religious items.
  2. Disney-themed items.
  3. Minion-themed items.
  4. Moomins (I feel like I'm the only person that doesn't like Moomins!)

If you're involved with a food-related swap with me, I am vegetarian (I eat dairy products and eggs) and I don't drink coffee!

Comment: Received your recipe today. Thank you so much for a Cottage Pudding recipe. I don't have a recipe for that and I cannot wait to try it. Don't worry about me reproducing it on the internet. I cherish all my recipes from my swap partners and I don't put them out there for everyone in the world to see.
Response: I'm glad you liked the recipe. Sorry for being so protective--old family recipe and all. :)

Comment: Sorry for the late reply, I already was on SB to rate e´when I got your email and then my brain decided to reroute and make me do something else >_> Looper is actually one of my favorite movies as I loev JGL andit's such a weird feeling to see him looking like Bruce Willis! Though I must say I hate my nieces legos, they're always all over the place and I keep walking over them and it hurts so bad D: Thanks for the answers!

Comment: At first I thought you attached pictures of only one cat, but then I looked closer... :) They have to be related! Their ear shape and their marks are very similar.
Response: You're right--they are from the same cat colony--we're just not sure how they are related. Now that Leo is older I sometimes confuse him with Mimi if I just glance at him.
