*FYI: the single 1 rating is from a previous swap which I sent but was unfortunately never received. I did send my partner another package but never heard back from them. I've reached out a few times to no avail. They are no longer active so I wanted to clarify in case you have any concerns. Please feel free to message me!
Hi~ I'm back from a bit of a hiatus! I'm from sunny Southern California and love snail mail. I love a letter (or package) in my mailbox. There are few things that make the stress of work melt away like a surprise from my mail carrier. I really enjoy swap-bot which blends my love of crafting and decorating. I learned about so many different types of crafting and love meeting fellow swappers from across the country (and world) on this site.
Cute drawings, Food with faces, Everyday objects with faces :D, Dachshunds (I have a chi-weenie mix named Bosco), Hawaii (prob my favorite place to visit), polka dots, Stickers (the more kawaii the better but I'm open to most stickers and probably have way too many... someone swap with me?), picture related craft stuffs (I'm probably the only one in my circle to print real photographs nowadays), a new pen (have far too many - is there such a thing? - and love to discover new ones; pls let me know if you want a pen b/c I have plenty to send to new homes), and I'll add more as I reevaluate my favorite things in 2020. ;)
I've been making homemade cards for as long as I can remember. I make party decorations for the events I plan (usually on an office budget so I've been known to get pretty creative with 8.5 x 11 paper). I'm tempted to try my hand at sewing and crocheting and tend to have a few projects going at once.
I started making paper flowers and love it. Crepe paper is best but standard printer paper works well too.
Love trying new restaurants and most of my friends ask me for recommendations. I like to cook but baking is definitely not for my forte.
Flavor wise: pineapple reigns supreme. peach! lychee! grape, strawberry. I love a good fruity tea (making iced tea is my fav way to cool down during the hot summers here).
I like teas in general and love everything from black to decaf teas. My only limit would be chamomile. Just reminds me of when I am sick :X
I love international snacks. The more local the flavor - the better for me. Would love to setup a swap for this. I know there are lots of crate type services out there but I love meeting someone through their favorite snacks :)
I have a degree in English so this list runneth over... however, I'll have to come back to this section.
I love to travel! Domestic, International, what have you. I like learning about new cultures, and of course trying new foods! My passport isn't too filled but I plan to visit each continent at some point. . . currently have 4 to go... so many countries, so little time!
If you need more ideas, I like things that are practical/useful. I already have too many nicknacks so I prefer receiving things I can use. Most craft supplies or related items are welcome. I do love the trend of these waterproof/vinyl stickers. Please no sticker flakes. They drive me crazy! :P
If it has a dog/puppy on it, I will be so very happy.
I'm not very picky so send away. I think most of the joy comes in knowing that someone was thoughtful enough to send something they enjoy.
