i'm a 33yr old hello kitty fanatic & SFC member living in adelaide, australia..
i love hello kitty.. seriously, i LOVE hello kitty - any direction you look in any room of my house will feature the little white feline (it can be vomit inducing for most people -_-).. and as far as i'm concerned you can never have too much hello kitty, i'm the type of person who buys doubles of everything to make sure there's a spare for when the first wears out..
i love other kawaii things too.. love shinkansen, nyan nyan nyanko, sugarbunnies, brown sugar, doraemon, rilakkuma (especially when he's snacking ^-^), anything to do with cats (especially white), anything to do with small dogs, hamsters (we can't own them in australia cries) or hippos, strawberries, cupcakes or cherries - oh, and i'm a sucker for images of foods (cartoon or photo) with little kawaii faces..
i adore letter sets and envelopes, love coffee (starbucks syrups/accessories are a fave, but i also love my saeco espresso machine), notebooks, little 1" button badges, ribbons and tote bags..
i'll put a list of no-likey stuph at the end of my profile, but i'm generally a pretty easy person.. even when i get something i don't like i can usually find a good use for it or will know someone who'll love it - and anything made with a smile and sent to me will be loved just cos i LOVE getting mail !!
color wise, i love pink, brown, green, orange, black and white.. i love textured paper, card and fabrics and really like asian designs..
my fave places are korea, taiwan and new york city, so anything related to these spots on the world map will be more than welcome..
i love stuph by fiona hewitt and itsuko ayano.. love momiji, especially the joanna zhou line.. i love letter sets, have i mentioned that already ? ^-^ i really really do love them.. i don't know why, i seldom have anything to actually SAY in a letter, but just having them in case i need to say something in writing is a comfort :3
if you want to include something for my husband, psym'n, he loves to try candy, chocolate bars and sodas from all over the world and is obsessed with cricket ^-^
if you want to include something for my puppy, howard, he loves dressing up and is generally a size small in dog clothes/accessories..

i always attempt to cater my swap package to my partner's profile, cos if there's one thing better than getting something you like in the mail - it's getting something you LOVE in the mail..
i understand that australia (beautiful as it is) is a real drag to mail to because our quarantine can hold up packages for days - so i know that sometimes i may have to wait longer for swaps to arrive at my door..
I WILL RATE every swap i receive as soon as i can - i aim to get your rating up within 24hrs of getting the swap package in my eager little hands, so if i haven't rated you it means it hasn't arrived yet (see the above statement about australian quarantine)..
i enjoy putting together swap packages - they are always done with that anonymous affection swap partners should feel for one another.. if you receive a package from me that you hate please tell me and i'll try to make it right..
if you've scored me as a partner and are still stuck as to what i'd like to receive, here's a cheat sheet wishlist ::
anything to do with Show Luo
kawaii sticker sheets
well, any sticker sheets really - i love stickers!!
kawaii sticker sacks
kawaii letter sheets
hello kitty ANYTHING
fancy A4 papers (colored / patterned / textured)
any deco tapes
kawaii or strawberry themed fabric
hair accessories (clips / barrettes / baubles)
cute strawberry themed items (eg :: fabrics, stationery, stickers, or anything !)
cute cartoon hippopotamus themed items (eg :: fabrics, stationery, stickers, or anything !)
anything related to the monkees
i prefer kawaii items i can use, like ziplock bags, paper lunch sacks, deco tape, small storage items, etc etc..
IT IS ALSO WORTH NOTING that i'm not a kawaii snob - i don't mind generic characters (not COPIES of characters tho) if the items they're on are well made, and i don't care if it's made in china, america, japan, korea, taiwan, india, australia - whatever - i just love kawaii things regardless of where they're from..
the same applies to hello kitty merchandise - i don't mind if it's not made in japan as long as it's official sanrio branded :3
and please, never feel like i ONLY want to see kawaii items in my packages.. if a swap doesn't have kawaii as a requirement i'm not going to expect it - i love deco tapes, ribbons, stickers, lettersets, envies, notepads, notecards, fabric, brads, etc in all kinds of styles ^-^
