About Me

Crafter. Scrapbooker. Graphic Designer. Mum to twins (a boy and girl). Dabbles in gardening. Love to travel and discover new places and meet new friends.

Currently living in Shanghai.

IMPORTANT REQUEST: I'M A RESPONSIBLE SWAPPER. IF I SIGN UP FOR A SWAP, THAT MEANS I WILL SEND IT ON TIME. HOWEVER, AS I DO NOT HAVE CONTROL OVER MAIL DELIVERY TIMES, I HOPE YOU WILL CONSIDER DELAYING THE RATING AND NOT INSTANTLY GIVE ME A "1" JUST BECAUSE MAIL HAS NOT ARRIVED. SOME MAIL TAKES A WEEK, SOME EVEN 2 MONTHS. SO PLEASE UNDERSTAND.

Favorite Music

Grew up with the 80s music. Love various genres but favourites are mostly pop music, some oldies, and jazz.

Favorite Books

I read a variety of books esp love a good mystery/thriller, crafting and some romance. My favourite authors are Patricia Cromwell, Elizabeth George and Mary Higgins Clark.

Favorite Crafts

Enjoy scrapbooking as I get a chance to play with paper and a different medium which is different from my work.

I love to sew, crochet and knit when I get the chance. I enjoy seeing the finished stuff being used or worn.

I'm still learning to do a bit of embroidery.

Snail Mail

LOVE snail mail. Growing up, I used to have a lot of penpals and kind of missed that and so trying to start again.

I'm easy to please and wouldn't mind receiving any postcard with stamps and even with a written message. Please no free/advertisement postcards.

I wouldn't mind swapping...

Other than postcards, I've gotten hooked on ATCs and art journaling. I enjoy swapping simple mail (letter, cards, etc.), washi tapes, stickers, Project Life journal or filler cards, crafting supplies, granny squares, fabric squares for quilts, etc.

NOTE: I spend a lot of time thinking about the what I send to my partners and also invest in time making them. I only request is that I also hope to receive something that is worth saving.

Please NO chocolates or candies because sometimes mail takes a while. I wouldn't mind tea as it gives me a chance to try tea from other places.

Comment: Hi Arlyna. I have to tell you I was crushed when I found the dreaded not from the postmaster in my box saying they had accidentally ruined your letter. The beautiful envelope you made was shredded. However, tucked safely inside what was left of the envelope was your ATC. It’s so cute. I love it and it’s little leg being eaten off. Thanks so much for the awesome card.
Response: OH no!!!! I am so relieved that the ATC has arrived intact in spite of the outside being ruined!
