Here to help keep snail-mail alive. I've "met" some wonderful people here and consider them friends. With that said, I try to put a bit of care and thought into swaps and encourage the same.

As far as hearts go, I give them for TPG: thoughtfulness (yours), presentation (yours), and giddiness (mine). I don't need extras with swaps since I'm in a constant state of downsizing. I prefer quality over quantity. But if I send you extras, it's because I have something I think you can use (i.e., you're helping me downsize). I love decorated envies, especially when they feature your artwork and collage.

Note: I'm allergic to cigar/ette smoke, and anything dusty gets me sneezing, too. So please don't send smoke or dust my way.

Favorites

  • colors: red, grey, yellow, aqua; purple & orange together
  • places: πŸ’— Scotland & England; Japanese Tea Garden, San Francisco.
    Wish list: Ireland, France, Japan, Scandinavia
  • flat stuff: kawaii sticker flakes, colorful unused USA postage, personalized swap cards, holiday stickers, large kawaii memo sheets, cat cards, anything BTS (world's oldest fan here)
  • not-so-flat stuff: measuring spoons, gel pens, glue-dots, anything BTS :-)
  • creativity: learning how to make homemade pasta and Shoyu ramen (there's a LOT of prep for good ramen); sewing & wreathmaking; mail art. Love fabric pre-cuts and high-quality quilting cottons (Dashwood, Dear Stella, Art Gallery, Windham). I'm a certified fabric hoarder and just as much a fabric snob.
  • themes: retro botany, UK, woodlandia, outer space, UFOs, kawaii, k-pop, chalkboard art, echinacea, Shinzi Katoh cats, paranormal
  • book collections: Edward Gorey, James Thurber, Clare Turlay Newberry, Shel Silverstein, Stephen King, Brian Wildsmith
  • stationery: anything literature-themed, kawaii, fun pens, Eric Small Things
  • washi tape: Japanese, Scandinavian, cats, kawaii, woodland animals, nature scenes
  • mail art: love original doodles, colorful washi, and collage on incoming mail
  • animation: Shaun the Sheep, Wallace & Gromit, Howl's Moving Castle, Chicken Run, Bob's Burgers, Teen Titans Go, South Park
  • movies: About Time, Parasite, Being There, To Kill a Mockingbird, Sophie and the Rising Sun, North by Northwest, The Departed, Enchanted April
  • tv: documentaries, k-dramas/rom-coms, What We Do in the Shadows, Ozark, Fargo, Vikings, After Life, Welcome to Waikiki, Schitt$ Creek, The Office
  • music: BTS, GOT7, Enhypen, TXT, Santana, Van Morrison, Al Green, Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, CCR, Valerie June, War, Led Zep, George Strait, Neil Young
  • Japanese kawaii: Favorite brands are Papier Platz, Saien, Sanrio, Doronbox, and Q-Lia. Kutusita Nyanko and anything Shinzi Katoh top my wish list. (Love Pusheen, also, but it's not Japanese.) I'm open to new designs, too!
  • animals: I'm an animal lover and on some days prefer them to people. Cats are my favorites (have 1), but I'm also a fan of donkeys, alpacas, Highland cows, foxes, owls, sheep, dogs, and unicorns (have 0).
  • spring: daffodils, dogwoods, stargazing, spring peepers
  • summer: fresh veggies, homemade lemonade, fireflies, Outer Banks
  • autumn: pumpkin farms, Halloween goth, fall foliage, crockpot chili
  • winter: snowfall, Christmas, quilts, birds at my feeder, puzzles
  • cute woodland designs: hedgehogs, owls, deer, raccoons, pines, foxes, botanicals, vintage camp scenes
  • sinfully dark chocolate

Comment: Thank you for the cute Halloween card and your nice note. I put up all our decorations today. We have about 50 kiddos in our neighborhood and I bought far too much candy.
Response: Thanks so much for the hearty rating! I haven't decorated much for Halloween -- just some streamers on my mailbox. But I'll put out my glowing pumpkin cat if it doesn't rain. Until next time!

Comment: Thank you so much, Donna, for a wonderful swap! I love the HK/kitty washi/black cat decorated envie. The black cat card you sent is so adorable. I love the art on it. It's definitely a keeper. The 2 Mind Wave sticker sheets are AWESOME!!! The one with the black cats/tuxedo cats/grey and white cats is especially special to me. The black cats remind me of my beloved Johnny Cash and the grey and white cats look just like my dear Frankie Mae. The markings are spot on! Today has not been the best and you have actually put a smile on my face which I didn't think was possible. Thank you so much for making me happy. =D
Response: It's always fun sending to you. I'm glad you like the cat stickers and envie and they brought some cheer to your day. And thanks so much for the kind rating!
