Hi, I'm Nicole! :)
I love letters, stationary, tea, and anything cute, positive, or uplifting. I like to spend my free time doing decorative journaling in my Hobonichi, watching and attending figure skating competitions (Yuzuru Hanyu is my favorite skater, I'm obsessed lol) or studying Japanese.
I love trying new crafts and just recently took a pottery wheel class - super fun! I also love meeting new people from all over the world. Some of my best friends are in Japan, France, Hong Kong and Brazil.
I live in North Carolina with my husband and our pets - Two Shih Tzus and a Ragdoll cat.
I'd like to get into stationary, tea, and other types of swaps but am also open to anything else.
I look forward to swapping with you! :)
I love love love anything involving stationary! I currently have a Hobonichi that I use for decorative journaling/kawaii scrapbooking. I also like to send decorative letters covered in washi tape and cute stickers to my friends.
I also enjoy knitting although I haven't made much lately.
I just now used a pottery wheel for the first time and did pretty well, so I'm hoping to make that a craft I do regularly as well.
These days I'm currently obsessed with:
I also love:
I love historical or romantic movies. Some of my favorites are:
I also love Disney and Pixar movies, or any light-hearted cartoon that makes me smile
I like all kinds of music, but right now I'm listening most to soundtracks, like La La Land, Amelie, The Greatest Showman, The Phantom of the Opera, Love Never Dies etc.
I also love music from any Studio Ghibli movie, and anything that Yuzuru Hanyu has skated to. My favorite being Haru Yo Koi. I'm obsessed with it (the piano arrangement he skates to) lol.
I love trying food from any culture around the world. My motto is: If you eat it, I'll at least try it. (well there's a few exceptions... balut for example lol)
I love to get sweets or snacks from around the world. I also love tea and coffee, but especially tea. I have a huge selection of loose leaf tea and drink about 4 cups a day.
I have no food allergies so anything goes!
I don't get to read as much as I used to, but there are a few books I'll read again every other year or so. I honestly spend most of my reading time on AO3 currently but these are my favorite books:
To be honest I'm just happy to get anything that someone takes the time to send, but since I've seen this on other profiles I thought I'd make a list of the kinds of things I'd like to receive the most:
