About Me


Hello! I’m so excited to be here. I’m Sarah. I’m 32 years old and I’ve been doing Pen-Paling and collecting kawaii for well over a decade now! I’m an artist who enjoys working with many mediums and I’m eager to meet new friends and share goodies with people all over the world!

I presently reside in the beautiful state of Colorado with my Husband. The mountains have always called to me and I knew the first time I visited this place it was my home!

We have a boxer named Buzz, and though he is the sweetest, most precious soul on earth, he does shed. Please do not be alarmed if you receive a few random hairs in your packages. I do my best to keep them clean and clear, but it's inevitable that a few will sneak by my detection!

I edit my profile pretty frequently to reflect changes in my tastes and to add or remove things that I no longer want to swap or new things I'm excited about! My likes/dislikes are forever changing as I learn and grow and have new experiences!

Some random swap things

  • I strongly prefer my notecards to be sent BLANK with notes written on paper or other stationery and tucked inside. I love to be able to re-use cards and keep passing them along. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

Roses! Roses! Roses!

How I Rate

I always rate the day I receive my swap and I GREATLY appreciate a partner who does the same!

I am very generous with my hearts, but if I get something that is on my No-no list, I tend not to leave them.

I try to always go above and beyond when I create a package for my swap partners! Hearts mean a lot to me, because it makes me feel like I am accomplishing my goal, which is to really brighten my partner's day! I honestly enjoy positive feedback better than I enjoy getting my own swaps in the mail! Haha!

On this same note, please know that I would NEVER purposely flake on a swap. I take all my swaps to the Postal Counter to double check postage and to make sure I see with my own eyes that they are being put into the route! If you haven't received a swap from me PLEASE reach out before you rate!

Thank you so much and Happy Swapping
