7 30- I am sorry this is such a late entry but I have been in the hospital for about 2 weeks now. I went in with a virus and ended up having emergency brain surgery to place a shunt having to do with my cancer. My girlfriend was supposed to mail things off for me and a neighbor came to visit today and told me she saw a couple things in bright envelopes on the road so I don't know if things fell out of her car or what happened. Please message me if you are waiting on something from me and I'll send it out asap.
If you have not been rated for a swap or a tag, please let me know! When I'm in the hospital my girlfriend picks up my mail and there has been a couple times she didn't give it to me until a week later
Hi everyone. My name is Tonya. I am 24 years old and heard about swap-bot from a penpal. I love writing. I've been penpaling for 3 years.I love swapping stickers and stationary.I am a caregiver for adults who have dual diagnoses of mental illnesses and developmental delay. I have been with my girlfriend for a year now.
At the moment I am also going through chemo and radiation for a brain tumor that has spread.
I love country music from the 90s and early 2000s. Also P!nks older music. Ed Sheeran.
I love Torey Hayden, Casey Watson, Cathy Glass. Lisa Scottland, Ghost Boy. And Harry Potter
I love stickers, especially loose ones. Wish List:
-Animals (My favorite are woodland animals, elephants, and giraffes)
Kawaii (not a fan of Hello Kity)
Please Don't send-
children cartoons (unless it's one specified on mtv wishlist)
I love coloring. I take coloring stuff to work and color with my clients. I love anything from simple kids coloring books to complex ones. Some of my favorite adult coloring books are Angie Grace, Relax with Art magazine, and Creative Haven. I would love to get some kawaii coloring books since I can not find them in the US.
I also love cross stitching. I usually do kits and am slowly working towards building up floss to be able to do patterns out of books.
I also like to make envelopes.
Some things I would love:
Address labels (I love them but don't have a printer to make them myself)
-Project life cards- A friend taught me how to make penpal books with them but I only have a few.
-I am looking for Disney or pixar postcards. I would love any you send me. My favorite Disney movies is "The Lion King" and I like any of the older movies.
-Small paper/plastic decorated bags
-I have a client at work who has a collage of little colored pictures. I would love stamped images that I could give her to color. Semi-simple. More cartoon like (she's mentally 5), preferably on heavier paper.
The Lion King and Harry Potter themed things (I love both and have a semi-unhealthy obsession)
Signature pens of all colors (they're double sided felt tip markers that people use for writing. I had a penpal send a few to me and I'm in love).
I've fallen in love with Washi tape but the selection around me is not very big. I would love some more patterns (my favorite colors are teal, pink, and purple. Also anything music/ writing/ photography themed)
-Bookmarks (Any, but my favorites are the magnet ones you clip over a page)
-I love coloring magazines and coloring books especially mandalas and patterns.
-Penpals, I would love some more people to write to on a frequent basis. People who don't do "mass letters" where they write the same thing to 20 different people. I want to build friendships and actually get to know you and for you to get to know me.
-Penpaling supplies (colored pens, stickers, letter sets).
I recently found a coloring group that I'm excited to be a part of and thought a coloring section would be a good idea.
My favorite things to color are patterns, Mandalas, whimsical designs. Anything cartoon like. Cartoon like animals.
I'm not a fan of- realistic people or realistic animals, flowers or greenery.
Wishlist- a Rugrats children's coloring book, a Lion King coloring book (children's or a more adult one), complex color by number (I have seen a couple Disney ones from Europe that I would die for), any pattern coloring book. I've just started a copic and polychromo pencil collection. Any open stock (single) copic or polychromo pencil I would love.
My favorite color combinations are pink/teal/purple. Green/brown, brown/pink, gray/purple.
I love kawaii, especially the fairy tales and cute animals. Some of my favorite characters are sentimental circus, little twin stars, my melody, keroppi, Jewel pets, and Candy Bears.
I'm not really into hello kitty. I also don't really like the cartoon looking girls (unless it's fairy tales). I'm also not a fan of Rilakkuma.
One of my favorite things at the moment are memo sheets that have envelopes or little fold in half booklets to cut out and make. Though I've never been able to figure out the pages with all the complicated folds.
I collect letter sets. I would love any you send me.
I also use letter sets without the envelopes or pages from letter pads
I love non holographic sticker flakes.
At the moment I am enthralled by the idea of ATCs, pocket letters, and snail mail flip books. I would love if you would send me one of these or would be willing to do a swap with someone who might completely fail at it :)
