About Me

Hello all!

My name is Akanksha, am married and a Stay at home mom to an amazing 6 year old.. Am born and brought up in India, presently staying in Texas, USA . Moved to Houston in 2018 after living in Michigan for 4 years. I love to cook and to craft.. Am into scrap booking and love making pocket letters and flipbooks for swap or to send to my penpals.

I am a stationery addict and love papers, pens, Washi tapes, ephemera and scrapbooking supplies.. I love anything cute and pretty and colorful. But I also love vintage themes! Quite a contrast!

I love to travel. Have visited most of the tourist places in India. Have been to Thailand, Nepal, Canada, exploring and visiting various places in the USA. Would love to travel to Australia someday! I collect fridge magnets, pressed pennies and postcards from all over the world. I would love to receive one from your city/ state/ country!

I collect bank notes , coins, bus/ train tickets from all over. I am happy that my state quarter collection is finally complete!

I love collecting playing cards with interesting back designs..my collection is slowly growing. My Missing cards are: Heart - 4 , 5, 6, Diamond - J . Spade - 10, J, Q, K . Club - 2, 4, 5, 7, K.

My favorite colors are Pink, Red,pastels and gold.. Spring is my favorite season and I love to see flowers in full bloom. I doodle, draw mandalas and starting to learn lettering!

l collect postage stamps (new or old) and have quite a colllection. I have also recently started collecting Starbucks cards( no value) . I love the designs and patterns on them.. and am looking for state/city cards from the US and also from other parts of the world.

I love Disney and some of my Favorite are - Mickey and friends, Alice in wonderland, lion guard, cars movie, Smurfs..

I love project life cards and ephemera and use them a lot in my craft.

I don't have any pet yet but plan to have a dog in future..

My 5-year old is currently obsessed with Pokémon! We will be happy to receive Pokémon trading cards / postcards.

Please do not send me anything that is scary.. I am not allergic to anything but don't prefer receiving candies.. I have plenty of “thank you” notecards and don’t really need more! I also don’t want to receive anything religious, nudity or political!

I will always send my swaps, but in case you don't receive my swap, please let me know. I will resend. And I always rate my swap the day I receive it. Thank you!
