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. :)

Envelopes only, please ✉️ Anything larger than an envelope will be sent to customs and notice to pick it up usually arrives too late. I only sign up for swaps that fit in an envelope for this reason. Thanks for your understanding. 🙂

Delivery time As of 2018, it seems the average for a swap to arrive in North America is about 4 weeks.

If you do not receive a swap from me, please message me!

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 am a teacher/cat mom/cat fosterer who lives in Shenzhen, China with my husband. I am originally from Canada, but have been living in China for the past seven years.

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
  • Watercolour painting

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.

  • The Adventure Zone (Taako, Lup, and Angus are my favourite characters)
  • Jetoy items
  • Planner stickers
  • Pusheen
  • FIRST items, especially FRC, including team pins, stickers, or any trading items.
  • Letter sets (paper & envelopes)
  • Stickers
  • Cat-themed items
  • Washi tape
  • Postcards--any type!
  • Tea-themed items
  • Geometric designs
  • Any stationery item! (I love everything!)
  • Cross stitch items
  • If you are a fountain pen user, I appreciate ink recommendations.
  • Handmade items welcome

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!

Swap Stuff

Things I am always prepared to swap include:

  • Washi tape samples
  • Bookmarks
  • Postcards
  • Cute sticky notes
  • Fountain pen ink swatches

If you are interested in a private swap please send me a message.


  • Colours: Turquoise, coral, purple, rose gold

  • Patterns: floral, geometric, chevron

  • Tea: black, chai
