About Me

My name is Cheryl and I'm what someone may describe as an introverted extrovert, which probably explains my awkwardness (and I'm so so so very awkward). I'm turning 31 this year and I'm in no way prepared for it.

10 favourite books

  1. Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain
  2. The Magicians series by Lev Grossman
  3. A Life in Frocks by Kelly Doust
  4. Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
  5. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
  6. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
  7. South of the Border, West of the Sun by Haruki Murakami
  8. Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffinegger
  9. The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets by Eva Rice
  10. Care Packages by Michelle Mackintosh


Things I like to use, and that you will probably see in your crafts, or on my walls, or in my home:

  • small prints by independent designers
  • graffiti and street art
  • monstera leaf prints
  • cut outs of vintage ads
  • precious stone and crystal illustrations
  • world map related items
  • everything cacti and succulents
  • vintage illustrated children's books
  • vintage horticultural book cut outs
  • stationery stores
  • Riot Grrl over Stepford Wife
  • Lisa Frank over Shopkins
  • Sandy Lion/ Mrs Grossman's over Disney
  • The Addam's Family over Modern Family
  • Edward Gorey over Dr. Seuss
  • gummies over hard candy
  • cats over dogs (but I don't mind dogs at all)
  • toffee over caramel
  • sprinkle printed everything
  • donut stuff
  • washi (I'm basically obsessed)
  • patisseries
  • cold brewed coffee
  • berry and cherry flavoured tea
  • cold brewed tea! yummy!
  • embroidery
  • llamas are love


The following are things I would prefer not to receive:

  • anything with snails on it
  • religious pamphlets/quotes
  • instant coffee sachets
  • used cosmetic products
  • bookmarks
  • keychains
  • coasters
  • magnets
  • blueberry flavoured things
  • caramel flavoured things

I'm really sorry. I don't use them, and I hate to waste.

Stuff I made

These were probably from May - June 2017.

I think I made this around the same time as well.

This would have been made in June 2017 too.

I've been trying new things lately. This is one of my latest swaps from October 2017.

Open for Private Swaps

I'm looking for people interested in the following:

  • plant themed flip book swap
  • map themed flip book swap
  • handmade gift tag swap
  • themed paper-crafting kit swap
  • candy/chocolate swap
  • wide washi sample swap
  • crafty pen pal-ing on a regular basis

Regarding the post

I will be mailing my swaps via Post Malaysia's international air mail. It does take some time but more often than not will arrive at it's destination (eventually). Often, it takes a month or so. Sometimes a little longer because of customs in various countries. Mainly the United States. Which is kind of a pain.

It should also be mentioned that it takes awhile for post to arrive from abroad, as well. I'm quite used to this now, so drop me a line if I'm taking too long to rate you. Usually I'm still waiting on the post, and I'll generally rate immediately so no fear! I haven't forgotten you.


Comment: Hello Cheryl. I loved your PC, I don't think it was actually boring. The stickers and decoration were super cool :P My daughter loves shop-kins, so the pancake sticker was much appreciated. From Krissy

Response: I'm getting really used to lost swaps now. I know I shouldn't, but the mail system must be having some major issues nowadays. Nevertheless, I'm glad you got the pc and that you liked it! Have a great day <3
