About Me

Hi everyone! I'm Shareen and I've already been on Swapbot for more than a year! It was hard in the beginning as a newbie, there aren't many swaps to join but slowly I've learnt to make new things and join many swaps and even made a number of friends through this delightful site.

I started by writing letters to penpals during this pandemic which was something I used to do when I was way younger. I didn't know that many people still do that so it was really fun to join during the lockdown. However I'm in a bit of a slump lately as things are almost getting back to normal. But I realised that I'm more into crafting and swapping now rather than writing.

I've always been a stationery addict and this new/old hobby of mine is definitely helping my stationery stash grow into a mountain. I'm also recycling/upcycling materials to be crafted into my letters. It has definitely challenged my creativity. I love every minute of it!

Besides that I'm also quite the movie buff. I love cinemas but after Netflix came along, I stayed home more and binge watch on series and explore different genres of shows in different languages. It's so accessible! Wonders what technology can do in these times.

I love photography and travelling. I love taking pictures with film cameras so do check out my lomohome link above if you want to check out my vacation pics.

I also have an Instagram account for my penpals & papercrafting (link above) however I'm no longer accepting new penpals. Unfortunately, I'm still struggling to reply to my mails.

You can always drop me a DM on IG or private msg me here. I love getting to know new people. 😊 Private swaps are welcomed too.

I enjoy receiving anything really and I love cultural exchanges and knowing stuff about the place that you're from, your heritage, the people you grew up with etc.. I'm just fascinated about people!

I'm pretty much drawn to the dark side -I like morbid things and death in particular so motifs with skulls and ghouls are very much welcomed.

I like it if you make an effort to create something by hand rather than giving store bought items. But I don't mind either way. I just love a person's genuineness to communicate to reach out to someone and make a connection. :)

Favorite Television

American Horror Story, American Gods, Downton Abbey, Dirilis Ertugrul, Khurulus Osman, Mars, 2 Broke Girls, New Amsterdam, Shadow & Bone, Black Mirror, Umbrella Academy, Emily in Paris, Gilmore Girls, Hart of Dixie, Vikings, Suits, Big Bang Theory, Graham Norton Show, Lost Girl, Bitten, Big Little Lies, Chernobyl, Castle Rock, Into the Night, Game of Thrones, Sense 8, Virgin River, Ginny & Georgia, Gossip Girl, Locke & Key, Sex and the City, K-dramas, Japanese anime, Master Chef, Grand Designs - cooking shows, interior design shows etc. - I'm a couch potato.

Current craze - "Hanna" on Amazon Prime. Loved the movie and the series is amazing, Currently at Season 2 now. If you like Jason Bourne or spy/conspiracy kinda shows, this is for you!

Favorite Crafts

Paper crafts, mail art, paper collage, photographs, pockets, folders, flip books, postcards, hand-stamped items - rubber/clear/foam stamps (I love stamping!!).

Recently been collecting (*more like hoarding) a lot of artist stationery from all over the world like LCN, Pion, La Dolce Vita, Black Milk Project, MT washi tape, MU craft, Loi Design, Blinks of Life, Innkbenchmark, Elsie with love, Meow Illustrations, Ours, Cats life press, Viva Las Vegas, Letras Literarias etc. They are so unique and I love to create my crafts from these lovely brands of stationery.

From my travels I've also discovered lovely brands like Sostrene Grene & Flying Tiger. Would love to explore other brands too if you would introduce them to me.

New stuff I tried so far: Stamp carving, Bullet Journaling, Handmade Postcards, Decorated Envelopes, ATC, Inkbox Cards, Masterboards, Embossing, Making Die Cuts, Watercolouring

Going to try: Gelli printing, leather crafting, paint marbling.

Join my Instagram account to follow my journey! :)

NOTE: I like to create handmade items and add them to the mix in my swaps as far as possible. I enjoy giving extras coz I got loads to share.😁 I try to send profile specific items as much as I can.

Favorite Music

House, Trance, RnB, Hip hop, 80s music, 90s music, Pop, Rock, alternative...

Some of my favourites are: Mansun, Muse, U2, Mariah Carey, Bad Religion, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage Against The Machine, Diplo, Tove Lo, Dua Lipa, Calvin Harris, Toto, Mr Big, Fat Boy Slim, Jamiroquai, Paul Van Dyk and Ellie Goulding, Ed Sheeran, David Guetta.

Favorite Movies

I'm a big fan of horror flicks. I also love movies by Spielberg, Lucas, Tarantino, Tarsem, Tim Burton, Guy Ritchie, Wes Anderson, Guillermo Del Toro etc. I'm a huge fan of Star Wars, Harry Potter, LOTR, Star Trek. I enjoy sci-fi movies, inspirational drama, action movies, historical documentaries etc. I simply love movies!

Items I would love to receive

I do love the element of surprise but I also enjoy receiving washi tape and stickers or stuff that can help me with crafting like pages from an old book or images from old fashion magazines, rubber, clear or foam stamps, die cuts, memo sheets(NOT to-do lists), writing paper, pretty printables, cardstock, ephemera (vintage/postal/floral/medieval/gothic/Victorian) handmade items (ie hand stamped ephemera, stickers, pockets, envelopes, folders etc.), small metal dies.

I love colourful stuff or monochrome and metallic inks (NOT glitter!).

I love vintage, florals, gothic, medieval, postal, and Victorian themes. I also love spooky items like Halloween themed stuff so if you have some post Halloween items to give away that is greatly appreciated.πŸ‘»

I'm drawn to stationery with images of cameras and skulls on them and even architectural structures or design elements.

I'm happy and open to receive stuff from my fav movies and tv shows too.

Since it's not so safe to travel now, receiving souvenirs from your country of origin is fantastic like postcards, fridge magnets, brochures or posters, clean coasters. πŸ˜‰

Singapore doesn't have seasons so if your country experiences Autumn/Fall, I'd love to receive some fallen leaves. I think they are beautiful!

Thanks all!!


UPDATE: Do be patient with the current mail delivery durations especially during the festive season. If you have not received any ratings from me, I may not have received your swaps. Do not hesitate to ask. I hope you could have some screenshots and date of when you sent it out so I could check at my end if I had missed out.

Please note that mail to New Zealand, Australia, Europe (especially Scandinavia and Eastern Europe) and USA from Singapore might take a month or more to arrive or even longer in some other countries.

Do let me know if you have not receive my mail. I would appreciate if you wait till at least about 2 months had lapse before informing me, though. Mail delivery is really unpredictable! I'll try my best to notify my partners that my mail has been sent out or if it was returned. I am willing to resend. Just communicate with me about it. 😊

Please don't be alarmed if I were to enquire about the swaps you have sent to me. I could be messaging you if I have not received your swap too. I would generally wait for at least 3 months to lapse before asking you, though. I do take note of the dates that you have sent them out for my own reference.

Important: Please rate me when you receive my mail. I would normally rate what I received within the same day.

Thanks for your understanding. 😊


Please DO NOT SEND the following to me:-

Anything political or religious.(I've received postcards with bible verses before so please don't - I'm a Muslim. Thanks for respecting that.)

Nothing with pigs or dogs, please.

Kiddy or reward stickers(including puffy ones).

Edible things. (Packaged tea is OK)

To do list memo pads. (I have too manyπŸ˜…)

Anything with Glitter (Metallic inks are fine)

Planner items (I don't use one)

Friendship sheets/books

Kawaii items

Singske rated for HMPC: Botanical love - January on Jan 18, 2022
Comment: Thank you Shareen for the lovely botanical love. The dried flowers reached me in great condition! I’m wondering what kind of glue you did use? Must be really strong. I hope we swap again❀️
Response: That's great to know! Glad it reached you. Well, I used a normal white glue to stick on the postcard and I wait for it to dry before I brush a layer of Mod Podge (glossy) to keep everything in place. It looks a bit shiny, right. I love to use mod podge as a finisher especially on handmade postcards or ATCs. Hope to swap again soon! 😊Thanks for the ❀️!
