About Me

Hi there! I'm Becca, welcome to my profile!

Swappers! I am going on a swap hiatus. I recently lost my job and I need to cut corners where I can. I'll be sending out my last swaps soon and hopefully by their deadlines, have another job. Sorry! :c

hello!

I'm an aspiring animator & illustrator and am starting classes some time this coming year. I love animated movies, crafting, drawing, comics/superheros and bunnies. I love hobbying, and among letters I have several dolls/fashion dolls/ball jointed dolls, I upcycle, play video games, make bento for my lunch and a few other things.

Please note that I live in HAWAII!! Standard shipping sometimes takes WEEKS to get to me!! I will be sending all LARGE swaps priority just to avoid the long wait times...please do the same for me?

Light/flat mail usually sends normally, don't worry about those! It's boxes and packages that take EONS to reach me! I cannot send postcards or international mail priority, I'm sorry!

Favorite Crafts

border

I'm a huge crafter, and I make pretty much anything I can. I'm a big fan of upcycling, knitting, crocheting, sewing, and other fiber arts. I've made my own costumes and movie replicas of props and knitted wear. I own several dolls and make clothes for them regularly as well.

Favorite Movies

I love ALL Disney movies. Send me anything Disney related and you will be my favorite person ever! I also love many cult classics including The Nightmare before Christmas, Fight Club, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Edward Scissorhands, Sweeney Todd, Labyrinth, Repo! The Genetic Opera, Sherlock Holmes, Rocky Horror Picture Show, Breakfast at Tiffany's and the MARVEL movie franchise. Studio Ghibli is also one of my favorites!!

Favorite Television

I watch a lot of my television on the fly, and most of my favorite shows have been introduced to me on DVD. This includes House, How I Met Your Mother, Supernatural, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Firefly, Grey's Anatomy and most scifi anime including (but not limited to) Fullmetal Alchemist, Ghost in the Shell, Trinity Blood, Blood+, Cowboy Bebop and others.

television

Favorite Video Games

I don't play many video games, but the ones I do play end up being my absolute favorites. They include Pokemon, Final Fantasy VII, X & X-2, Portal, Mass Effect 2 & 3, Left 4 Dead & Left 4 Dead 2 and Minecraft. I am also a subscriber to World of Warcraft and I play on a private Ragnarok server.

Swapping items

I am open to penpal and private swap requests!

Completed private swaps:

• Private Swap with HeatherNicole18 (Disney Stuff for Hawaiian Stuff!) [Complete!]

i love penpals!

I especially love swapping:

  • Friendship bracelets (I WANT A WHOLE ARM FULL!)
  • Handmade Jewelry (I make shell jewelry, bottle cap jewelry and pressed penny jewelry, however I don't do beading) I love earrings, because I wear a uniform at work, and earrings are the best way to customize it.
  • Art! I am a practicing illustrator and if you'd like me to draw things for you I am not adverse to it! I love having practice! My sketchblog/artdump is here, but if you'd like finished work/digital work, feel free to message me. If you'd like me to include something in your swap handdrawn/doodled by me, don't hesitate to ask!!
  • Disney things! I love all Disney things! What sucks though is that I live in Hawaii, where those kinds of things are hard to get! I'm willing to trade anything from here in Hawaii for souvenirs from Disneyland/Disney World. If you'd like to swap something along those lines PLEASE LET ME KNOW!!!
  • Stationary. There are NO bookstores on my island, and stationary that isn't "kawaii" is very hard to come by. If you have non-kawaii stationary and would like some in return (I like fantasy themed, grunge, dark and indie artist stationary!) I would be willing to swap some cutesy stationary for your not-so-cute stationary.
  • Currency! I love collecting currency from around the world, so please, if you are international, a great way to make a letter extra special for me is to add a coin! Let me know if you are interested in American money as well, I have some really shiny/uncommon coins for you too!
  • Mermaids! I live in Hawaii and there is barely ANYTHING Mermaid like here!! I love anything fantasy with Mermaids, elves, fairies, dragons, etc. Celtic, Wiccan/Pagan Stuff is cool too!

mermaids are my favorite!

Please don't send me:

  • Food! Food traveling overseas almost NEVER makes it in one piece unless it's boxed!
  • Confetti/glitter. Loose stickers and small beads are okay, but anything smaller is a hassle.
  • Religious things. I swap for leisure, and I don't find religion very leisurely. Sorry! Also, I try not send religious items myself. If I do, it is usually a quote, and it is not the focus of the item as a whole (i.e. decorative stationary from Japan and Korea sometimes have Biblical quotes on them). If I send you something and you are offended, please let me know before rating, and I will resend. Pagan and Wiccan items won't offend me, as I find them cultural and not religious at all.
  • That's it!

Etc and Important Info

I will love most things sent to me because they are from somewhere else, more than likely somewhere I've never been. I may or may not resend items, especially if they are supplies! (i.e. tapes, ribbons, buttons, etc. NOT postcards or location specific items).

I live in Hawaii with TWO CATS and ONE DOG. If you are allergic to them, PLEASE MESSAGE ME!! Most packages I'll try to send a little something extra...because who doesn't want a special souvenir from Hawaii? If you want something specific, please message me. If you are allergic to chocolate or macadamia nuts, please message me, as they are a commonly given gift in my packages. Almost everyone gets a postcard!

Most yarn items will be made with wool and not acrylic yarn. Once again, if you have allergies, please let me know.

Haha, I'm so paranoid about allergies because my little brother has some severe ones. No one wants to receive something they're allergic to! On that note, I have no outstanding allergies. C:

thank you!
