I mark as send when I drop off my mail at the big red boxes at the end of my street (usually on the weekends) and they get postmarked when they eventually make their way to the post office and the workers get around to it. A lot slips by though and I'm always getting mail with 0 postmarkings so I'm guessing it's the same with mail I send to others.
Hi, I'm a huge lover of kawaii things and I love crafting! I used to be really into making amigurumi and am trying to destash them in my etsy shop.
Lately I've been into the idea of creating a vintage/Victorian/steampunk junk journal. (Without spending any more money)
As an etsy seller I have a lot of shipping supplies in bulk so I thought swap-bot would be perfect for me! I know I'm a newbie with only a few swaps complete, but I've shipped hundreds of packets on Etsy so I know my way around Canada Post.
Right now my latest obsession is kawaii memo notepad papers!
Swaps you'll probably find me at are type 2, most likely tea swaps (I love to drink tea!) And flat surprise swaps due to the flexibility.
And in Canada there is a big price different in postage between under 2 cm (document) and thicker than that is parcel which costs $$$
I am an extreme cheapskate. I will reuse packaging and I am not offended if I receive clearly reused bubble mailers which have been taped over with deco tape and have mailing labels slapped on top of old mailing labels.
I don't go out and spend money for a swap, I just use what I have available. At the thrift store I stumbled upon a box of 20 notecards with envelopes for $1.99 so I'll be using those!
Also, I'm really big on giving extras, simply because I have a lot of stuff lying around that I don't like or use but are good quality and totally usable so I can't throw away XD. I always read my partner's profile a couple of times to match up something I have in my hoard that I think they'll like.
My swaps tend to be quantity over quality in that anything I have sent, I have had lying around that I wasn't using or planning to use so I can afford to give more than the minimum requirements. I've listed things I'm looking to get rid of below, and if you see anything that interests you feel free to send me a message.
Also, if the swap calls for a notecard, please give me a blank one and just slap a sticky note in it with your swap name and user ID.
I don't know, I like a bunch of music but in retail environments I listen to a lot of pop that's on the radios XD. Bands like A7X and Three Days Grace are really good. A song I've started getting into is Sidewinder.
I love to read, and lately I've been on a nostalgia kick and yearning for books from my childhood. 'Member Zack Files? The Babysitters Club? Horrid Henry?
The aesthetic of older books, when I see them in thrift shops are just guh, I miss you!
I guess the latest series I've read was GRR Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire (waiting for the next book!!!)
I don't really like to watch movies that much, but when I do stream movies online for free I guess I watched... Frozen. Hahaha.
Adult cartoons. I feel I should like anime, I loved the golden oldies like Pokemon, Digimon, Beyblade, those were my Saturday morning cartoons haha. But I watched the One Punch Man anime recently and I have to say I liked the manga a lot more. It's just the timing of the comedic moments seemed a bit off in an anime. Definitely won't touch Naruto though, way too long.
I have no allergies.
In terms of tea, I'm good with anything as long as it doesn't have lemongrass. Right now I'm really into black teas and my favourite is darjeeling but I'm totally down to try new things!
In terms of kawaii these are my favourite characters:
-Any foods with faces
In terms of washi tape, I'm really looking for kawaii san-x character tape (I saw this sentimental circus one that said "for you" and I was dying)
And also vintage style/Victorian/steampunk/shabby/postmarked washi tapes!
Stuff I have that I can offer:
I also have a bunch of flat items for swapping in the mail:
-kawaii skull keyboard stickers
-Package of 15cmx15cm japanese chiyogami origami paper
-Plastic My Melody coin purse and card holder
-Hello Kitty pencil case
-Homemade mini notebook
-Asian red pocket envelopes
-sheer ribbon (red, pink, white, dark blue, light blue)
-I have a gift tag punch and a mini sakura punch, so I can offer die cuts of those
-I have pom pom makers so I can make pom pom chicks (great for easter!)
I'm looking for kawaii stuff in general
-Kawaii memo paper
-Kawaii washi or deco tape
-Would also really love empty rement boxes!
-Kawaii resin pieces
-Just starting to get into junk journelling, maybe some vintage ephemera
-Vintage looking paper (see images below)
-vintage/steampunk style fabric (scraps are okay)
-Metal Charms (leaves, feathers, gears, clocks, birdcages, dragonflies etc)
-Buttons in cute shapes (hearts, stars, flowers)
-Rubber/clear stamps with airmail themes or rustic, vintage kind of theme
-Jumbo Sakura/cherry die cuts (pink or white)
-Scalloped circle die cuts (brown cardstock)
-Stickers that look like postage stamps
-Cardstock paper (brown, vintage style, newsprint style)
-Tim Holtz stuff
-A laundry marker
-Mini chocolate bar I can fit in a pocket letter
-Shimmery pink paper/pale pink (scraps are fine)
The pictures below are the kind of style for scrapbook materials I like!
Also love sticker flakes like these!
PLEASE DO NOT SEND ME I have no use for these items! Please try to avoid these, but if I do get them it's no big deal because I'll just regift them as extras.
-Beauty products (eg hand cream, body lotion)
In terms of stationary, I'm only interested in kawaii and these are what I dislike
-non kawaii stationery
-Stationery with photographs of real food/animals/people
