About Me

alt text alt text alt text alt text alt text alt text

My name is Sera. I am in my late 20's. I work in retail management. I have off and on been writing letters and postcards since I was in my teens. Because I work full time (often with overtime) I don’t have much free time, but I enjoy snail-mail, swaps, and pen-palling in what free time I do get.

I was born and raised in Hawaii. I like to go to the beach and hike with friends when I have a day off. My other hobby is thrifting, I like to go by myself so I can take my time looking at everything.

I generally take a break from swap-bot around the holidays to focus on the busy season at work and avoid long lines at the post office. I may not be very responsive during the holidays.

I take about 95% of my mail directly to my local post office to be posted but if I ever miscalculate postage please let me know and I will make it right.

I have a Pembroke Welsh Corgi named Drake.

I collect state shaped magnets and state themed shot glasses.

I loove Trader Joe’s and we aren’t able to buy anything from them in Hawaii, please let me know if you would be interested in a private swap for Trader Joe’s products! I’m willing to swap anything!!

  • I love postage stamps. I try to send with stamps instead of printed postage whenever possible.
  • I collect Corgi themes items, washi, memos, any thing I can find. I like other dog themed items too, even if they aren't corgis.
  • Kawaii/cute anything
  • Stationary
  • Washi tape
  • Stickers
  • Enamel Pins
  • Blind boxes
  • I’m a huge Pokémon fan. I would be happy to receive any Pokémon theme.
  • Disney merch. Post Cards, Letter Sets, Pins. My favorite characters are Lilo and Stitch, Pooh and Chip and Dale.
  • Tea!
  • Celestial themes
  • Ocean/Ocean animals themes
  • My favorite holiday is Halloween.
  • Vintage postage stamps
  • Anime/Manga I have loved anime and manga since I was a child, and I would say it has greatly impacted my adult life.
  • I don’t have a printer so I would be happy to receive address labels made by another swapper


  • Religious items, I do not practice any religion.
  • I am a vegetarian. I have been for around 15 years and eating red meat unintentionally can make me sick.
  • unfortunately, I don’t make ATC so supplies for them will be wasted on me
  • Superhero themes items
  • Diddl
  • plastic deco tape. Especially if it’s plain colored/metallic.
  • I'm allergic to Pineapples
  • Strong Scents! I have chronic migraines and I do not like perfume. Please don't send me samples or spray paper with scents.
  • I do not like the flavor of passion/hibiscus flavored teas. Pretty much any tea that looks red/dark pink when it is brewed.

Kawaii Swaps

Alt Text

Alt Text I grew up going to the Sanrio store in the mall by my childhood home and I have fond memories of going with my grandmother and begging her for stickers or some kind of stationery. I would say I’ve been a lifelong Sanrio fan girl!

I'm not real picky with Kawaii themes. I'm happy with most characters and themes!!

Alt Text I like almost all the Sanrio characters. I love Hangyodon, Sugarbunnies, Kuromi, My Melody, Cinnamaroll, Pochacco, Keropi, and Peckkle. I love many of the main characters friends, too. Pochaccos pi-chans and Cinnamaroll’s friend milk are my current favorites.

Alt Text My favorite San-X character is the Kiirotori duck from Rilakkuma.

Alt Text I love dog, frogs, ducks, birds, teeth, and ghosts themes!

Alt Text Halloween/Spooky

Alt text Sweets

Alt Text Lemons/Oranges

Alt Text Eggs

Alt Text Odd Kawaii themes

Alt text Love all Studio Ghibbli, Kiki's Delivery Service is my favorite.

alt textalt textalt text

I would prefer postcards to be sent naked (no envelope) unless the swap calls for it to be sent in an envelope.

Favorite post card themes:

  • Night cityscapes
  • City Facts
  • Animals
  • Moomin
  • Disney
  • Illustrations/art
  • Flowers
  • Vintage Cards
  • Anime
  • Harbors

Post Card dislikes:

  • I don't like post cards that have pictures of children or babies on them (I just find these weird)

Crafts and Hobbies

alt text I really love houseplants, not so much outdoor gardening. I live in hot and sunny zone 11 where many plants I attempt wilt after one day of not watering. I am very passionate about Hoya plants. I have almost 30 different Hoya cultivars and I'm always looking for more. alt text

Alt Text

alt textI like to cook but I hate doing dishes. Dishwashers are not very common in Hawaii.

Alt TextI like to sew, I love shopping for fabric. We don't have major craft stores in Hawaii so I go on a crazy shopping spree every time I get to go to Joanns in the Mainland US. I make a lot of clothing, small gift items, and pouches. I like to make cosplay costumes. I have never had the time to do quilting, but I would love to if I had more time.

alt text I have an embroidery machine that I bought with money I made selling masks during 2020. I always wanted one, but I could never justify spending the money, so I made it my pandemic goal to buy one. I have been making a lot of anime inspired embroidery designs in the process of learning the embroidery software.

Alt Text I like to go on hikes with my dog or my friends on weekends. I like to go jogging and go to the gym.

Comment: I don't normally do this but I've been out of town and a lot of my mail got mixed up so I'm not sure if I received this or not so I'm just going to go ahead and Mark a five in a heart for all my last swaps because I don't remember and I don't want to be unfair.

Omgsh! I decided to let Poppy open a gift early and she went straight for yours. I took a video for instagram of her ripping the paper off of it. She LOVES it. :) Tell Drake thank you! I also LOVE my little extra gift. Thank you so so so much!
