About Me

You can find hosting, rak-ing and swapping at Cheap Postage Swaps, Tags and Fun.

I enjoy origami, scrapbooking, atcs and pretty much anything to do with paper. I paint pottery, do mosaic and glass fusion. I knit but I can't crochet to save my life. I doodle with my Sharpies.

Styles I like: eclectic, world/ethnic, tropical, modern art, graphic, anime, clever, hand drawn, kawaii/Hello Kitty.

Styles I do NOT like: vintage, victorian, lace, nudes, gothic/dark or religious, country.

Styles that I like in small doses: americana, art deco, tribal, earthy

LIKES: Love bright colors, unusual shapes, nature, pretty, happy stuff! Fav colors include red, black, blue, burgundy, purple! Fav scents are citrus, linen, simple and clean.

I'm always happy to receive:

  • cloth napkins or tea towels, handmade lovely
  • small perfume samples in vials
  • anything from or inspired by my etsy favorites
  • interesting bars of soap
  • low cal/low salt crockpot recipes
  • bento supplies and recipes
  • kawaii memo sheets
  • anything bicycling related

No thanks! Things I don't need or care to receive:

  • anything vintage
  • fabric/lace/ribbon (have too much already!!)
  • plain papers or paper scraps
  • incense or anything with a strong odor
  • herbal or green teas
  • anything licensed unless it's kawaii:)
  • books
  • anything religious
  • fabric - I can't sew nor have to time to learn
  • Please NO dollar store cosmetics, candles, candy/food, or personal care products - thanx!

ALLERGIES: Smoke, cat hair.
