About Me

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..

Hints On Hates

i don't really like blue or purple on their own, but i don't mind them accompanying other colors..

not into any sports, and i'm not a glam, sophisticated or even very grown up girl so nothing related to ::

--- FAKE hello kitty
--- makeup (never wear it)
--- sport
--- lip gloss
--- nail polish
--- candles
--- scented bath products (i use soap and water)

Re :: Swapping

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..

:3

---

If All Else Fails..

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
* kawaii envelopes
* hello kitty ANYTHING
* fancy A4 papers (colored / patterned / textured)
* any deco tapes
* kawaii or strawberry themed fabric
* ribbons
* 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 ^-^

Comment: Thanks so much for hosting! <33 I received what you sent me today and I absolutely loved it. ^__^ I opened it all at my friend's house and had the "OMG kawaii" trance going while my friends sat there amazed at how much you sent me. :D You're a super awesome swapper, and you're incredibly generous! I loved it all - especially the strawberry bento box. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! ^v^
Response: yay i'm so glad you loved it !! i got a little out of control cos you don't have any kawaii dislikes on your profile so i could just go NUTS and mix it up a lot - it was such a fun swap to put together for you ^-^ MERRY CHRISTMAS !!

Comment: Thanks for the lists. Loved the cute paper and the quotes especially.:)
Response: glad you liked it - i can seldom use my kawaii puppy paper in kawaii swaps because a lot of people don't like 'real animal' designs (i don't understand why, they're so cute!!), so i have to find other ways to use them.. thanks for the heart <3

Comment: Hi Jessa, thanks for sharing your lists with me! I love the way you've written out the quotes on separate paper. I may incorporate them into a journal in future. Love that curly black font, was there a machine involved? I like your bucket list too. :) Diane
Response: glad you liked it ^-^ quotes are kind of a personal choice, but sometimes you read one that really appeals to you so i wanted to make sure it was easy to separate from the rest of the swap if you liked one.. i'm pretty sure the font i used was one called AKMy Prince which would've been free to download somewhere online, so you should be able to track it down.. thanks for the heart (hearts are always so special to receive when no extras are involved - it really put a smile on my face <3)

Response: i'm so glad - sometimes kt swaps can be hard because as fans we tend to rush out and buy EVERYTHING we can, so it's always nice to know you've managed to pass on something fresh to a collector.. thanks for the heart luvvie <3

Maybe sometime in the future we should do a swap again? Just a thought... :)

Hi, i thought you might be interested in joining the Australian Round Robin Group

crazysugarbunny on Dec 8, 2010:

Hey! Thanks for the reminder, I haven't forgotten: just putting the finishing touches and will be sending Monday at the latest! :)

BTW I don't know if you know but thought I'd mention it: Toys R Us has Hello Kitty goodies (I work there, so I know, haha). Off the top of my head there's bead sets, some other craft sets, make-up, plushes and cushions.

eiko on Dec 8, 2010:

Kawaii Koala Kristmas deadline is looming - for those who have sent out already - HURRAY ! for those who haven't - HURRY !

if your package doesn't show up, make sure you check with your partner before stressing out

don't forget to rate your partner as soon as your holiday hubbub dies down if you wait until christmas day to open your gift ^-^
