About Me

Please reach out to me if you haven't received a swap from me. I've been experiencing some mail issues recently.

Hello there! Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I'm from the Midwest. My interests include traveling, shopping, and reading.

I've received 2 swaps in a roll where the swappers paperclipped the memo sheets together. PLEASE DO NOT SEND ME PAPER SHEETS PAPERCLIPPED. They leave very deep indents on the paper and as a collector, it's as good as damaged.

Interested in a private swap? Send me a message!

Multiple Swaps: If I am your partner for multiple swaps, please feel free to send them all in one envelope/package to save on postage and shipping materials. Just make sure to label them correctly so I know which swap is for which.


  • Vintage Kawaii stationery (sticker sacks/flakes, memo pads/sheets)
  • Looking to buy used memo pads (slightly used or used with lots of sheets still)
  • Sticker flakes from Q-lia, Crux, Mindwave, Kamio Japan (so hard to find these days)


2022-2024: Relying on Google Calendar.

2021: A planner wasn't even on my radar this year.

2020: Just carrying on blindly. No planner this year, physical or digital.

2019: I'm thinking of using something more digital for the new year despite being tempted by all the gorgeous planners out there.

2018: I went back to a very similar planner to that of the one I had in 2016. I find that it worked the best for me. This year I am concentrating more on content than the actually decorating. I do throw in some stickers and washi tapes but everything is more simple.

2017: This year I tried using a horizontal A5 Happy Planner. I love the look but I haven't been as consistent in decorating. IT WAS A FAIL!

2016: I have been consistent in decorating my planner (which is a simple Clementine Paper planner I bought from TJMaxx for $7.99). I didn't think I would enjoy it as much as I do now. I don't care much for decorating as I do writing it all down.


Since I am here mainly for the Kawaii swaps, I figured I ought to have a more comprehensive Kawaii section.

The short version is I like anything cute and girly. And I prefer not to receive anything weird, boyish.

I'm into older, vintage Kawaii but I know that they are either harder to come by or really expensive. I don't want to stress my partners out if they cannot send me vintage items (always a nice surprise but never expected).

I'm open to anything you would like to send my way. However, please note my "prefer not to receive" section below, especially in regards to counterfeit/knock-off items as they seem to be more and more prevalent these days.



  • PLEASE DO NOT SEND FOLDED MEMO SHEETS (or with obvious indention)
  • Kawaii that features real building/room/people
  • Shinzi Katoh brand
  • Daiso Kawaii
  • American Hello Kitty (items you find at Target, Walmart, Michaels, JoAnn, Hobby Lobby, etc.)
  • Zakka/Real life sticker flakes (unless it's dessert/food related)
  • Die-cut, coupon, or origami memo sheets
  • Non-branded, knock-offs & counterfeit Kawaii (including knock-off Sanrio items from Aliexpress)

Alwayz Kawaii have a really nice guide for telling if a sticker sack is genuine or questionable.

Washi Tapes

Unless the swap calls for it, I would prefer not to receive washi tape samples as I have a lot (both samples and tapes in general).


  • Favorite colors: mint, teal, turquoise
  • Lovely White/Orange Story stationery
  • Food with faces
  • Awawa Chan, Natto Chan
  • Vintage/Test San-x characters
  • Vintage Sanrio characters


Disney, Winnie the Pooh, Snoopy, and Diddl. I'm not really crazy about these characters.

Please no religious, academic, or holiday items. I'm fine with Kawaii Obake.

No magazine cutouts, scrap paper, foam stickers (I get way too much), confetti. Also nothing too masculine like mustache and sports. No ribbons or fabric tapes.

Currently no more journal cards & Project Life cards, please. Also no more ephemera and die-cuts. No academic stickers or dollar store stickers.

Junk in general.
